The advantages of the dictatorship have given the CCP the habit of wanton collection of information. It has always been the goal of the CCP government to create a data-based society—the most refined dictatorship society. After the CCP’s change of long-term policy from “hiding one’s capacity and biding time” to radical aggressiveism, its deep-seated power in the world is constantly exposed.
The Australian public television “ABC” and “Australian Business Review” (AFR) issued a major scandalous report early on the 14th, accusing the Shenzhen-based military enterprise “Zhenhua Information” for secretly collecting key network intelligence of more than 2.5 million people worldwide, including 35,000 Australian citizens, for the CCP government and the People’s Liberation Army. This is ironclad evidence that the CCP is engaged in information warfare all over the world and Shenzhen Zhenhua Data Company has been completely brought to light.
1. Brief introduction of Shenzhen Zhenhua Data Company
Shenzhen Zhenhua Data Information Technology Co., Ltd. positions itself as a “global open source data management service provider”. Its business mainly lies on overseas open source data consulting, data services, data governance, data integration, system development and sundry businesses. This explains that domestic customers are conducting data collection, management and application with overseas open source. The company has established core branches in Shenzhen, Beijing, Wuhan, Wuxi, Changsha, Shanghai and other regions.
Enterprise spirit: utmost professionalism, win-win cooperation, patriotism and dedication
Corporate mission: to integrate global open source data and help the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation
The company mentioned about launching a “hybrid war” and said it was “more cost-effective than traditional warfare”; this mindset has often been referred to as information warfare under the unrestricted warfare. The business is to manipulate the real society through social media and, with the use of big data, to achieve “the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.”
The goal is to transfer conflicts on social media to the “real environment”. This will lead to “conflicts between the state and the society or different social groups.”
It is hoped that when recruiting copywriters with “good writing skills and creativity”, they will cultivate a sense of conflict overseas. At the same time the company expresses that “the basic ability to edit pictures is of the highest priority”. (To make the grand foreign propaganda a weapon to be exported to the world.)
The company says that its main function is to provide services for “military, security and foreign propaganda.”
2. What did Shenzhen Zhenhua Data Company do?
It claims to provide “public opinion intervention”, similar to the Russian troll farm’s successful manipulation of public opinion, through social media.
An article on the Zhenhua website elaborated on the company’s ideas on how to deploy these propaganda weapons abroad.
“Social media is capable of manipulating the reality and weakening a country’s administrative, social, military or economic power,” the company said. According to a report, this may lead to “a country’s internal conflict, social polarization and radicalism.”
For example, the use of social media to shape and manipulate public opinion is often associated with Russia and its hyped campaign against Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election of the United States.
Using “an aghast number of robot accounts” to spread false information, fires are blamed as arson rather than climate change and prolonged drought. The public’s judgments are influenced and it in turn promotes the intensification of social contradictions. In the database where Zhenhua’s data has been decrypted by the world outside, there are registries of more than 2.4 million citizens of various countries. Among them, as known, there are at least 51,000 Americans, 40,000 British, 35,000 Australians, and 5,000 Canadians, and 558 Japanese are being monitored by this Chinese system. However, most of the names are of ordinary civilians, or neighboring relatives and friends who have had contact with “key people.”
