‘There’s No Rules, There’s No Restraint’: Kerry Gershaneck on China’s Plan to Win W/O Fighting

In this special episode, we sat down with Kerry Gershaneck, professor and author of “Political Warfare: Strategies for Combating China’s Plan to ‘Win Without Fighting’” and “Media Warfare: Taiwan’s Battle for the Cognitive Domain.” We also hear from Joshua Philipp, host of Crossroads and senior investigative reporter at The Epoch Times. They discuss the Chinese regime’s bid to take down America—not through traditional warfare but something called “unrestricted warfare”—how that’s playing out, and what steps can be taken to counter a threat that may not even be seen.
Gershaneck said, “Basically, fighting without rules goes back thousands of years. And so this concept of unrestricted warfare is new to, say, those of us in democracies because we work by the rules, we try to. We have international conventions, we have law, and we try to adhere to it to the best that we can—whether that be Japan, whether that be Taiwan, whether that be the United States of America or the European Union, we do try. Under unrestricted warfare, which is the thought process that is clearly guiding the Chinese Communist Party [CCP], there’s no rules, there’s no restraint. And so that’s what we mean by unrestricted warfare. Unrestricted warfare applies to all kinds of warfare.”
