    If this is true (and it seems to be), it shows that China is actively working in spreading it's ideology and trying to gobble up the world. I don't know for how much longer this situation is going to remain civil. Chinese nationalists are already marching in a few cities in the West and I wouldn't be surprised if they're funded by the CCP through a few shell companies.

      Isn't Chinese spying pretty well-known or at least assumed? Just like we assume many other nations have spies.

        This isn't just about "spying" (i.e. collecting information), which every country undoubtedly does... this article is talking about "direct intervention" by "buying media coverage, infiltrating universities, funneling donations to favored candidates and creating thousands of social media accounts to attack Taiwan’s governing party", amongst other things. The only other country that is so blatant about doing similar is Russia (edit: and the US at various points in the past), AFAIK.
