文明人为被种族清洗的对象

这标题很大受了我读的一位网名为Duke of Qin的英文评论之启发,具体为

“Civilized” people get ethnically cleansed. I want the Chinese to be proud Chinese, not ersatz yellow Canadians. You know what happens to the considerate Chinaman? Other people walk all over him and take advantage of them at every turn and they are too meek to say a word otherwise. It’s a recipe for racial extinction. Submission to the behavioral norms of globo-homo-Amero culture one place means submission in other places too. Better by far for the Chinese to retain the blithe “fuck you” attitude and force others to accommodate themselves to our behavior than the inverse. Works for the Arabs and Israelies, the Chinese should copy them.

类似于此的给我留下深刻印象的还有

Disparate communities of blacks and whites when placed in proximity without the presence of an interventionist states always ends in one way, with whites fleeing for the hills and blacks left in command of the battlefield. Sure it will eventually become a ruin, but blacks win and whites lose. You see in the macro level as South Africa is gradually ethnically cleansed of whites, yet the same refugees from the black tide are usually the first to make excuses for the blacks that ethnically cleansed them!

这些我就懒得翻译了,反正大致上我很认同。

此说起,昨天一来到中国,一下子就觉得无论是人还是物,给的形象都比较“粗”,感到不适应,以此可以说美国比中国文明的多。我说的这个“粗”到底是什么呢,给几个代表性例子,为无论室内室外外表的脏乱,街上开车汽车的某种凶狠,还有整体一种“不太正规”的感觉。还有一点,或许最代表性的,就是人与人之间,至少我一天之内接触到的,说话的方式与我在美国的华人里接触到的很不一样。即使聪明有学问的人在中国,也远远更多表达以一种粗俗的方式。

所以美国的华人经常对本土中国人有一种优越感,觉得自己更卫生,更文明,能够来到美国,瞧不起国内人那种粗鲁的行为。可惜的是美国的华人虽然理工科做得强的不少,甚至基础科研最强的华人好多或大部分都在美国,他们毫无政治势力,基本处于被清洗的状态,而国内人,尽管那样粗,其集体为一个完全独立的超级大国,或至少接近与此。有高深知识的,理工科牛的,中国人也有,也越来越多,今天电视上看到了中国的中国人现在能做出世界上最大的,最长的,最高的桥,而且参与此过程可以说没有一个外国人。这种大规模的工程不光需要一些顶级的工程师和科学家,也需要很多肯干粗活的工人,更需要大量的经济投入和有效的组织。这种东西是美国的更文明的但一盘散沙的华人完全不可能做到的。中国的中国人是全面的团体,相反,美国的华人太偏。

美国的华人也是那种为了自己某些愿望,无论是崇洋媚外还是还是自己的事业还是更舒适的生活为代价主动选择被白人统治的那种。说起这一点,又一个Duke of Qin的语录从我脑海再次出来,复制一下就是

Nice guys finish last. Chinese shouldn’t become “nicer”, they need to get meaner. Atavism is the word of the day and they need to embrace “meanness” to survive in an ever darker world. I’ve seen the behavior of the so-called “nice” Chinese; deracinated compradors with fertility rates below 1 whose primary desire is overpriced real estate and cargo culting the West and miscegenating themselves into oblivion. In other words, an evolutionary dead end. Ill take Henan peasant over Shanghai cosmopolitan any day of the week and twice on Sundays. One of the good things about the Communist Party is that they have universalized Chinese nationalism to no longer be the exclusive realm of educated elites. Next step is to foster a siege mentality of us against the world and project that “meanness” against outsiders. Race War Now.

没错,集体起来,河南农民的确在大多地方比国际化的上海人强的不知道哪儿去了。

历史完全不缺文明人被野蛮人征服的例子。数学不通的罗马人征服研究出公理化几何的希腊人。然后野蛮的歌德人征服罗马。在过一千年,华夏文明的汉人也被蒙古夷人大屠杀而统治的。成吉思汗流氓也征服当然文明灿烂的中东伊斯兰界,巴格达之战蒙古人也把城市基本灭光了,连东欧大多也占领的,在那儿还统治了两百年以上,当时欧亚大陆的文明几乎都被蒙古蛮夷大屠杀而统治了,当然蒙古人也基本接受而保留了这些文明。

近代史,在中国又有低文化水平工农兵为主体的共产党打败了推崇儒家加西化教育的国民党。在美国,我有看到好多那种反共的文明华人,觉得中共反知识,反有钱人,破坏中国传统文化等等,可是这种人就是能够打下江山而振兴中华,使得中国首次在近代史上屹立在世界强国之林,否认此的华人最终只不过是一种酸葡萄的汉奸,无法意识而纠正他们政治上严重误区。说什么反共产党知识,共产党还是在知识分子被骂为“臭老九”的文革时期把两弹一星搞出来了。说实话,共产党很明智,跟成吉思汗一样,先得以人民群众和少数革命知识分子的支持,打下了江山,解放后也基本讨好而充分利用了大多来自于资产阶级背景的受过高深理工科训练的人才,把他们与广大中国人民做出了巧妙的史无前例的结合。

有人说汉人真tmd够呛,当年几亿人就能被几百万蒙古人屠杀成那样,后来又被满清统治,同样几年前,八个人在昆明拿着刀,上千汉人都不敢反抗,只会跑,就几十个人一起对着行凶者扔东西也能顶住他们,但就没人那样做。相反,毛时代中国人血性强的时代这种事情绝对不会发生。所以啊,汉人两年啊,什么卫青霍去病,我看都比不过一个毛泽东,抗美援朝一下子,汉人的厉害就牢牢载入史册了,外人就再也不敢惹了,而他靠的是狼性而不是文明。其实,毛泽东也是文明人,他是无比伟大的诗人和思想家,可是他绝对不是那种典型的,本质上懦弱保守的文明人,而是极有勇气和斗争力的革命家。我个人看到过农民出来的知识分子觉得大部分知识分子都不是好人而骨子里依然瞧不起知识分子,这一点我觉得自己能认同虽然我自己家庭起点不算低,我也对大部分文明人的世界观和政治观比较反感,至少我感到一个人为了面子而文明是极其虚伪的,虽然自己也算文明人,但是没有瞧不起所谓不文明的人反而还是尊重他们具备的我不具备的重要的能力和精神。就像我能够认识到在美国的专业能力强但政治观点有问题的华人的局限性,能够认识到就他们那样自然会是被清洗的对象而想法脱离他们。

同样,现在美国和欧洲的白人,他们是文明人,但是在美国白左势力日益增强,政治上不断屈服于非裔和西班牙裔,此过程中,更加文明老实的东亚裔只不过是替罪羊及牺牲品。按现在的人口趋势,预测2050年,白人在美国就不在是多数民族了。同时,在欧洲穆斯林是大进而繁殖,无所顾忌的利用那儿的物质条件和福利,白人目前也不能把他们赶走,尽管金发碧眼美女漫天遍野的瑞典按某些人说已经成为世界强奸首都了。敢于挑战此的白人右派基本会被打压,他们的政治势力可以说是在日益减小。西方文明那么厉害,但按现在之趋势,是否能避免以这种和平演变的方式被外人征服,还真不好说呢。

所以作为结论,我要说国内人那种“不文明”的表现其实是好的,那才是这正伟大的,有生命力的民族的表现,我要发愤图强去模仿他们,适应他们,但不用担心,在这一点,我也绝对不会盲目。

A Chinese theoretical physicist on freedom of speech, lack thereof in civilized society

As for the words of that physicist, he was too articulate about it, that high V. Everybody who’s not delusional is pretty much aware of what he’s saying, but few can say as articulately and expressively. I published his words in an article on Zhihu, in Chinese of course. I will translate it to English for a few of you here. It’s of course much more expressive in Chinese but not all that much is lost in translation either.

越是文明社会越是没有言论自由,你在美国你当然可以批评那个美国总统因为美国总统与你没啥关系啊,你敢随便批评你的顶头上司吗。这是你生活经历告诉你的啊,文明社会人与人之间有这么多关系。你当然是因为自人利益啊,你当然不能随便说话。我就拿这个主流媒体来讲。只要不是白痴都知道这个犹太人掌握这个媒体但有谁感讲啊,你要讲的话你老板你犹太老板立马就把你给解雇了。一解雇你那个房贷车贷,你不是在哈弗大学读书那学费去哪里找啊。在原始社会人才是自由的。中国有句话叫做无欲则刚啊。你只有没有欲望,不需要祈求别人的时候,你才有言论自由。所我一直觉得欧美人所以一种幻想,说他们是民主社会什么言论自由,完全是一种幻觉,批评总统有啥,批评总统算个屁啊,算啥本事啊,有种批评你的顶头上司批评你的同事。

The more civilized the society, the less there is freedom of speech. In America, you can of course criticize that American president because the American president has no relation with you, but do you dare to criticize your immediate superior? This is what your life experience has told you, that in a civilized society, there are so many relations between people. Of course you are for your own personal interest, you of course cannot speak as one pleases. I can just use the mainstream media to explain. So long as one is not an imbecile, it’s universally known that those Jews control the media but who dares to say it, if you say it, your boss, your Jewish boss, will immediately fire you. Once you’re fired, that house mortgage, auto mortgage of yours, your Harvard tuition, where will you find that money. Only in a primitive society is there freedom. China has a proverb known as “devoid of desire, thus hard and firm.” Only when you have no desires, no need to appeal to others, do you have freedom of speech. So I always say that Europeans and Americans per a type of delusion, say they are a democratic society, a society with freedom of speech, it’s completely an illusion. Criticize the president so what, proves what, if you have courage, criticize your immediate superior, criticize your colleagues.

As an FYI, I feel like China is so much more free, speech-wise, in many ways, in ways which matter much more. A few of my writings on Zhihu got deleted for referring to a combination of words for “Xi Jinping,” “anti,” and “dictator,” that’s okay. (I was, predictably, either referring to some individual or some case of the US media, but the automated censorship bot I guess cannot detect that.)

After hearing words from that physicist, I can better understand why. Because, in China, in Chinese, amongst ourselves, people don’t have to give a damn about what America thinks, about what Westerners think. There is an invaluable freedom and expressiveness in that unattainable outside of China and the Chinese language.

So China is in some sense the only place in the world where the media is virtually free from Western influence and control. I feel ever more proud and privileged now to be born Chinese in mainland China who took the time and effort to learn well the language and culture, despite having been in America since age 6. Because of that, if things really don’t work out for me in America, I can always go back to a powerful and independent country where I am welcome and have family and roots, where I can truly belong. Because of that, I need not be unlike many a white peer of mine a mental slave to a country and culture mired in decadent political correctness anti-civilization.

Finally, I shall note in particular of something I was reminded of by his words “if you have courage, criticize your immediate superior, criticize your colleagues.” This will likely come as quite a surprise, or even shocking, to many. That based on what I’ve read and heard, never having experienced it myself, that much describes what China was like during the Cultural Revolution, with the big character posters and public denunciations. People were encouraged to openly criticize their bosses, their colleagues, their leaders, in the workplace and outside. In that political climate, your boss could not really do anything to you. Of course, it led to some chaos and tragedies with many innocent people attacked and pushed aside, and certain groups took advantage of it for their own personal interest. More positively, a few adults in China who actually experienced it have characterized it to me as “an experience of genuine freedom of speech, of democratic monitoring of those in power achieved by the Chinese people that far exceeded anything America has ever experienced.” As unintuitive as it may be to those in the American mindset, a lack of rigid rule of law actually gives the majority of people much more freedom and leverage. After all, rule of law easily becomes a tool of the elites. Why wait for a scoundrel on top to be formally tried and convicted, likely never to happen with the protection of the legal system a built in his favor, when hordes of people, angry at what is more often than not clear injustice committed, can in the absence of “rule of law” reign in on him with unrestrained criticism and harassment? The majority of people have a conscience. In this world, there is no love without reason, and there is no hate without reason. Almost always, if there are masses of people who hate you to the bone, then you probably did some real injustice to them. I’ve noticed that if you examine the style of speech and criticism on the Chinese internet, as well as the reasoning behind it, you’ll find some of this flavor. There is less of a certain type of “civility” more the norm in America but in exchange more of a freedom of speech rare now in American society, crudely speaking. Contrary to the artificial American stereotype, Chinese are actually a really rebellious people. China has arguably the richest political revolutionary history and tradition of the 20th century. Americans are actually very tame in comparison. There is gross exploitation, anti-meritocracy, and lying that goes on with virtual impunity in America of a nature almost unimaginable in Chinese society, which has been endowed with a political consciousness per historical experience much stronger in substance in many ways.

一个回忆,关于美国媒体对中国的抹黑和歪曲

感觉好久没在这上面写中文了,若将来回国发展中文还是必须大大提高。希望多在这上面写写中文,说不定还能吸引多一些中国的网民呢。

那中文我现在想写什么呢,就是一个不知为何而突来的关于中国在英文界形象之回忆。原来工作偶然认识了一位高材生,他来自中国最聪明的省的农村,但通过竞赛被报送进了北大,后又在美国麻省理工念了博士,牛人啊。一看到这样的人我就容易自卑。

有意思的是他竟然跟我表示他觉得美国文化非常扯淡,非常会骗人。记得有一次他却提到美国时代杂志选的2015年全球最影响力的一百个人之中国代表,都比较负面。有了习近平,独裁吗,还有出中国环境污染记录片的柴静,此人我当时未知,好像他说的之中还有小米创始人雷军,这毫无疑问还是很正面的,说明时代杂志也开始认可宣传中国的科技创新了。他的结论确是,选的大多都是负面的,会给美国人什么样的感觉啊。其实,这些在美国长大的我早就知道,也早就习惯了。

那百人里面中国血统的人不止三个。好,那我就把他们都列下来吧,同时也个个评论一下。

  • 习近平,已提。
  • 柴静,已提。
  • 雷军,已提。
  • 鲁炜,当时中央网信办、国家网信办主任,中国“不自由”网络之王,我看或许是最负面的。
  • Joanne Liu,著名加拿大出生长大华裔女医生,医学教授,参与了Doctors Without Borders,我操,又符合英文界更愿意提拔华裔女性的普遍现象,还没有查他老公是不是白人,也懒得查了,就默认为是吧。还能算正面,但问题是他是香蕉人,父母也是逃避中共的。
  • J.T. Wang,台湾电脑公司宏碁总裁王振堂,真有意思,时代他的名字还他妈的J.T.,算正面吧,表示中国人技术上的能力,但是还是美国中国狗子国家的人啊。
  • Chen Shu-chu,我从没听说过的什么台湾女捐蔬菜的慈善家,佛教徒,不是什么有钱有势的人。要强调又是教徒,又是女的,又是台湾人,偏见忒明显了。
  • Jimmy Lai,香港十亿富翁及民运反中共分子,又是47年出生而十三岁随父亲逃到了香港。

所以一共八个,四个大陆的,其中只有一个是正面的。然后一个正面的女香蕉人,又两个正面的台湾人一男一女,加上一个香港反共人士,这对中国大陆也是很负面。其实,从某种角度宣传非大陆华人的好也是对中国的一种负面。美国媒体还真的对中国大陆人和其他中国人有明确区分,名字也如此。所以可以说是八个里七个都负面,你说给美国人对中国什么印象啊。

当然,中国人最好的办法就是对此置之不理,将来强大了说不定还能真正左右一下。

Why Chinese-Americans are hopeless as a group

Today appeared on one of my news feeds a column titled Indistinguishable Asians from the Cornell student newspaper. I won’t really bother to summarize. You can easily read it for yourself. Basically the whole Chinese-Americans are smart, hardworking, but quiet and lack leadership quality. So there are implicit quotas and differentiated standards on them in college admissions to account for the hurdles they’ll face in the workplace blah blah blah.

Chinese-Americans are a really weak group politically. They are extremely scattered too. You have first of all the immigrants and the Americanized. Even among those you have mainland Chinese, Taiwanese, Hong Kongers, etc. Moreover, there is also that the Chinese who come to America tend to be those selected for their academic ability via graduate school, not the political big fishes. Face it, nobody really wants to be led by a minority group culturally and physically very different. The few Chinese in America who are “leaders” can be roughly split into two different categories. There are those who are followed for their technical excellence and those promoted to act as a minority agent for primarily white ethnic interests. If Chinese-Americans want to seriously advance their group interest, they won’t really succeed as a minority in America. Their minority status will render them forever in a subordinate position here, unless China becomes so powerful that it manages to gain substantial indirect control over American society, which I cannot foresee happening.

As for myself, I didn’t really come here by my own choice. But I have to live with it. I can of course try to find a way to go back but it won’t be that easy. I think Chinese are best off just staying in their home country.

I find it quite sad the race problems that America is increasingly mired in now. There was already the black and Hispanic problem. Now Asian-Americans are joining in on SJW like activism too.

I hate to say it but this is a nation founded on dispossession and white supremacy. As far as dispossession is concerned, even though the pure Native-Americans have been rendered almost invisible by now, Hispanics are part Native-American blood, and there’s not going to go away. Blacks in America is a legacy of the slave trade, which whites are, face it, responsible for. There was back then another side of racism that was against slavery much for its enabling permanence of blacks in America.

It is multiracialism that has engendered in Western culture this what I would regard as a fake left liberal SJW element ever more mainstream. I guess it took root much during the Cold War when America had to make some compromises to blacks in order to not lose too much support from the formerly colonized and oppressed countries of the world. It’s fair to say that Hitler’s defeat and the rise of the Soviet Union as a superpower gradually pressured attitudes towards race in the Western world towards the opposite direction.

I once said to my white American friend how I feel sad for him that there won’t really be a place in the world of just his breed. Seriously, I’m Chinese and I want whites to have a homeland. Like, this is a real bastardization of culture.

His reaction to this was one of

I’m not super happy about this. I’d very much like a white homeland. Hell, I’d be pretty happy with a “people who moved out of Africa around 85K-50K BCE” homeland.

People work better and more efficiently with those like themselves in race, culture, language, and values. Across groups, especially ones very culturally and linguistically different, there is a high communication cost. America used to be predominantly white and Christian. The talented immigrants from Europe owing to WWII were white and easy to assimilate into mainstream American culture. Now, the ever increasing racial, cultural, and political diversity in America is becoming ever a liability. Through the Anglo language and culture, preeminent in the world today, it infects gradually to Europe as well.

Now, since this post was supposed to be on Chinese-Americans, I’ll point out that America is somewhat of a destination for Chinese who are much averse to the mainstream system and values in mainland China, which of course represents the overwhelming majority of Chinese. Yes, wishful Westerners can entertain the belief that most Chinese hate their “repressive” government but can’t do anything about it, but come on, the fact that it could come to power in the first place indicates that it won support of the majority. You only win a civil war when you’re better than the other side at getting people to fight for you. Yes, the ones who hated it who could escaped to Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia too. Now, those people are often not considered true Chinese by those in mainland China. They could of course gain much more for themselves by assimilating into that culture and consequently winning the trust of the mainland Chinese, but they have strong enough of their own cultural and political identity now. When it was decided that Hong Kong would return to China, many Hong Kongers immigrated to the West, with Vancouver, Canada, a notable destination of that group. Once China seizes control of Taiwan, which is pretty much inevitable, many of those die hard Taiwanese loyalists will leave as well to join more Chinese in the Anglo world where they will then experience life of a politically marginalized minority deemed unsuitable for leadership positions. The human rights liberal faction in the West will probably grant some political asylum spots, which would only contribute to more ethnic diversity and potential racial tension that they will continue to sweep under the rug. Once in the West, they may feel they are different from the other Chinese, but remember, American society views Asians as “indistinguishable.” They will still be easily be mistaken for Chinese in mainland China. And they and their children by virtue of physical difference unalterable will never truly assimilate. It’s just too bad for them that they feel so strongly politically. Their ancestors were for the most part lackeys of colonialism, and they will continue to be in America subordinated and promoted only to the extent that they are useful. It’s really quite a pitiful position to be in.

Really, overall China gets not a bad deal. They have political undesirables. Those people, if they are able to, can leave. Go to America, Canada, Australia, etc. There are, too, many ethnic Chinese in Hong Kong and Taiwan who resent mainland China and its influence on their lives. Those people will also have to either live with it or get out. How much better they will fit in in America is questionable. Certainly, they’ll add more diversity and eventually engage in some SJW behavior too, once they are indignant enough of discrimination and political invisibility. America will become even more of a racial spoils cesspool. And in some sense, China can remain “the last man standing” with its political misfits ejected out at a competitor’s irreversible expense. In case you haven’t noticed, China mostly leaves other people alone, other than to do business with them. Its political activities abroad are mostly targeted towards ethnic Chinese, hoping to keep them loyal towards the PRC as opposed to Taiwan, which it considers a domestic affair, a legacy of the unfinished civil war. Really, the only political condition that China will be adamant on when doing business with others is acceptance of Taiwan as part of China. The ideal future for China is one where there is full control of Taiwan, with those there actively anti-China out. Less trouble at home and those misfits as a minority in the West will become but more politically impotent, with the burden of dealing with them shifted to whites on the other side of the world.

A guy I know from China once told me that “ABCs are the worst off, because while they can never truly be American, they also lose their opportunity to be Chinese.” I believe he is very much right on that one. My advice to those conscious of this but stuck in America by birth or parental immigration is to learn Chinese well enough to come across as a real Chinese. You don’t have to buy the American cultural garbage. I didn’t and I managed to learn Chinese well enough, much on my own, such that I have written a fair bit on the Chinese internet, including on this blog, and can mix in easily with the real Chinese. With that, you can potentially move back to China, where your children won’t have to suffer the indignity of being part of a minority group with a grossly incoherent and confused identity. Or at the very least, you can exert a political pressure and voice in a direction that is much more likely to work than what most Chinese-Americans are doing right now. Seriously, putting pressure on American society and media to accept more of the Chinese Chinese narrative is going to be much more effective than begging under a discourse and culture designed by and for the white majority.

 

Ron Unz is also a PRC government apologist, maybe because America really is being completely unreasonable

My friend is in China right now. He posts:

Everyone here is surprised that I want to study Chinese *in Taiwan*. I think there are a bunch of reasons for that, but here is another one. In total, I’ve been to Taiwan for about the same length as the mainland, and…

Mainland: 3 digestive, 1 airborne viral
Taiwan: 0 digestive, 1 airborne viral

This reminded me of the milk scandal from back in 2008. As I skimmed through that Wiki page, something in particular caught my attention. It was

Ron Unz compares the Chinese government and media reaction favorably to the coverage of the Vioxx scandal in the US, saying that “American journalists seemed to focus more attention on a half-dozen fatalities in China than they did on the premature deaths of as many as 500,000 of their fellow American citizens”.

I was like LOL, Ron Unz is against America even on this. The reference for that was an article Ron Unz published on the matter (link).

I guess Ron Unz has a point. And also, I’ve never even heard of the Vioxx scandal. The general pattern is whenever something bad happens in China, the US media is so eager to report it. It’s a way of discrediting your competitor and ideological enemy. The US is using its power all it can, often in objectively ridiculous ways, to make its competitor fail. Of course it does significant damage economically and reputation wise. There is that China is still actually behind, and there is even more of a negative perception, much of it manufactured by the US mass media. Now there is this vaccine scandal, and again the US media is giving it much attention.

Basically, it’s very hard when there is someone in a position of power/authority who basically wants you to fail. This shit happens in the workplace too. It’s obvious that America wants its main competitors Russia and China to fail. The hostile competitive relationship is of course much derived from the ideological/cultural differences. Some Russian guy told me that in the US, to put it somewhat hyperbolically, there is a phenomenon of really smart and competent Russians discriminated against for being too good. Those in charge don’t want those Russians to become director level or higher in the company, much because they are afraid. Mostly want them to do the difficult technical work, produce much more value for the company than they get out of it. Could that Russians tend to do worse at the highest tiers of corporate America than mainland Chinese indicate that the American elite still fears more from Russia than from China? Well, I can only say that in terms of technical ability, Russians are definitely more intimidating. Otherwise, we would not see Chinese buying their high-end military hardware. I’ve seen some who actually spoke out in the work setting, and the end result is that they got wrecked, politically. There may also be that Russians are less tolerant of stupid bullshit than Chinese are. They’re the ones who tend to openly say that questions like “why do you want to work for this company?” and “what is your biggest weakness” are basically completely retarded. Now, I’m sure many people feel this way, but they don’t have the nerve (or you can say they have the political tact) to actually directly say it.

I do sometimes wonder, “could it be that in terms of political/cultural atmosphere and general knowledge/literacy, Russians and Chinese are generally way higher than the Americans in positions of power?” Could it be that delusional American mediocrities in positions of power are using the overwhelming resources they control to hold back people way smarter and more sane than them who would do a much better job of running the world, who have to put up with this bullshit? Again, might makes right. Russians and Chinese maybe more right, but they don’t have the power to fully counter what the American elites are doing. Maybe they will soon though. It’ll be fascinating to see how this turns out.

In any case, the smart Russians and Chinese who immigrate here via graduate school mostly end up creating a ton of value for thankless American capitalists for a merely upper-middle class salary. And even then, there are idiots hysterical about espionage. Maybe those talented, hardworking Russians and Chinese should go back home with the expertise they’ve accumulated working in the US and contribute to their own economy and military technology instead. That would do enormous damage to America’s competitive position. There are big US tech companies who hire a ton of smart people and put them on projects they’re overqualified for partly with the intention of preventing them from working for their competitors. I guess on a more global scale, America is doing the same. And their competitors are mostly getting a shit deal. Though the situation could definitely change. Maybe the American elite really will be stupid enough to drive those smart immigrants back home. They’re already getting there. Ruining the career and life of a top Chinese immigrant physicist with trumped up espionage charges. Now also instituting visa restrictions on Chinese STEM PhD students. I can totally foresee something similar to what happened in the 50s in China with the likes of Qian Xuesen, co-founder of Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Caltech professor, who went back to China after the US government ruined his career. Many other Chinese in STEM in the US followed his path. They (those idiots in the US government) are self-contradictory too. They are paranoid about espionage, and at the same time, they don’t want these people going back home to work for their competitor. In the 50s, the US government actually prevented those people from returning to their native country. It took a few years of negotiation with the Chinese government before those people would be allowed to return. With the sanctions on Russia and the trade war with China, I can definitely see somewhat of a repeat of this coming.

It may also be not too long before Russia and China seriously do whatever they can to make America fail. That won’t be pretty. It can get really, really nasty. You know, maybe China had some false hopes. Like, entering the US phone market. Turns out the attitude towards Huawei and ZTE phone by the US government is basically one of “get the fuck out you’re not wanted here.” Chinese who immigrate and face language and cultural barriers in the workplace hope that their kids can break past that. Well, it turns out that their kids are systemically discriminated against in college admissions. The message is basically one of “you’re a foreigner and we don’t want you or your kids in anything but a subordinate position.” Soon, those Chinese might just go “damn were we wrong, let’s get the fuck out of America before it’s too late.” And then, maybe Chinese in China will really want revenge, and will go out of their way for it. You don’t want to piss them off too much. They can potentially mobilize their entire population towards the goal of, say, taking over Taiwan and South Korea militarily. Both are 100% within reach. They will do that once they realize that they won’t progress much anymore without playing a win-at-all-costs zero sum game against America. The trend is already going that direction.

Election time

I just received ballot for primary elections. Now, time to do a bit of “research” into the background of the candidates as well as the election system in general. Truth is of course that primaries are given far less attention by the media (I sure hope I’m correct on this one) than the final election pitting Democrat vs Republican. Enough that I’ve also paid scant attention to it so far. I haven’t found American politics all that interesting, but that may change. In any case, I found myself looking briefly at the backgrounds of superdelegates of the Democratic and Republican National Committees.

There was also that I read a bit more about the background of Ron Unz, whose site I comment on now, who actually won 30+% of the votes in the California Republican gubernatorial primary back in 1994, as a 32 year old financial software entrepreneur. The winner of that got 60+% of the votes, so he wasn’t exactly close, but regardless, 30+% of the votes means you were actually taken seriously. Not bad for a smart as fuck Jewish weirdo who studied theoretical physics, who, according to this article, was still eating half his meals at Burger King despite being a multimillionaire at age 37. I don’t think he married or had kids. Maybe because he only saw his father, an EE professor, three times in his life, and was afraid that he would end up like that too, who knows. What can I say, his maverick, non-conformist streak certainly has relation to such a background, for reasons of both genes and environment. Honestly, I can’t believe a guy like him managed to be as successful as he was in the game of American politics, which, as far as I can tell, tends to select inverse to merit, past a certain, not terribly high filter at least.

There is much criticism over the election system in America, obviously, especially with regard to the electoral college, which one can think of as a layer of indirection in the voting process. Think of them as virtual votes, which correspond to electors apportioned based on state population (via number of House of Representatives plus two Senators). They actually correspond bijectively to the members of Congress of each state but are not those. They are nominated by the political parties per state, and they vote for the representative of their party in the presidential election, with the exception of cases of faithless electors. There were quite a few in the controversial 2016 election. The one who stood out most was a Native American who instead of voting for Hillary Clinton voted for some Native American activist. On that note, that other smart and weird as fuck Jewish Ron who studied theoretical physics is Ron Maimon, and he once spoke of America as a culturally rotten nation founded on white supremacy and dispossession. This is what I was reminded of when I learned of that faithless elector.

Of course, what’s been the most controversial about the 2016 election is alleged Russian interference. Just a few days ago, there was quite some media backlash there with regard to Trump’s denying it in his summit with Putin in Helsinki, to the extent that Trump was pressured to publicly take back his statement, framing it as an accident of word. I learned of this incident after I started seeing these Facebook posts on Putin/Russia, and I was like, huh, what just happened.

As for Russian interference, they say, among many other things, that Russians hacked into the Democratic National Committee computer network. I would believe that is real. I guess Russian government is doing that for revenge against Ukraine. Reading Andrei Martynov’s book reminded me of the Ukraine coup back in 2013-14 and consequent sanctions against Russia for annexing Crimea. It seems like Russia has pretty much lost hope in trying to make peace with the United States and is going direct confrontational now. I guess Russia might also want revenge for their banning from the Winter Olympics earlier this year for doping, which many there believe was pressured and manipulated by the US.

There were also Russian internet trolls, on Twitter and Facebook especially. I hate to say it, but that’s part of the game of manipulating public opinion. In the US there are these election campaigners who essentially play it professionally. The only way to fend this off would be to have these sites block Russian IP addresses, which I’m sure these sites would be very reluctant to do, as it would mean loss of business for them. Again, the conflict between private interest and “national interest.” Of course, this won’t stop Russians from using proxies in the US to do the same, just as the Great Firewall of China doesn’t stop people from bypassing it via VPNs. There are, I’m sure, companies in the US acting as covers for Russian intelligence activity. Those would be difficult to eliminate, unless America chooses to go full anti-Russian domestically, meaning that the smart Russians with a lot to contribute will come here less and less, and instead make Russia better at home. In any case, Russia has succeeded in undermining public faith in America’s democratic process. My question now is when will the American public wake up and realize that “democratic” is a meaningless political buzzword with a positive connotation artificially manufactured and promoted by the US mass media?

In any case, this shows that Russia is still really politically formidable, *in spite* of her big fall in the 90s. At the core, Russia is still the world’s number two. It’s not China, which I don’t think could have interfered in a US presidential election enough to get as much blame for it even if she really wanted to. Of course, this has to do with that Russians are physically and culturally much closer to the US than China, making it easier for them to blend in when necessary. There is also that Russia is still more technologically advanced than China. Even in computer security, Russia has Kaspersky. Nginx, a real rival of Apache, was created by a Russian in Russia. What does China have there? No web server from there that I know of. In anti-virus, I know of Qihoo 360, but I would not bet on them vs Kaspersky. On this, I’ve written the following:

China is still way behind

Buys its best military gear from Russia. S-400 surface-to-air missile system. Su-35 fighter jet along with Russian engines for its own planes because its own aren’t good enough. Its Comac C919 passenger plane is taking longer than it should, and it’s collaborating with Russia on a better one (CR929). Still not self-sufficient in CPUs/semiconductors. Russian military technology may well be the best in the world now: https://www.unz.com/tsaker/book-review-losing-military-supremacy-the-myopia-of-american-strategic-planning-by-andrei-martyanov/. China is still junior partner just like back in the 50s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wg8Zd-IPHYg.

On the plus side, China has mostly completed its Beidou satellite navigation system (though Russia’s GLONASS still came first), and it’s being incorporated into Chinese defense industry and tech companies. Baidu Maps probably uses it now.

It’s not just technology of course. It’s also the political posture, though surely, that part is hard if you don’t have really strong indigenous military technology to back it up. In that respect, everybody else is still << United States and Russia. And maybe Martyanov is right that there, as far as quality is concerned, we are having Russia > United States. Though perception wise, I don’t expect that for a while.

我对于种族关系的看法

最近在美国,正在进行的对常春藤大学歧视亚裔的种族配额制度的案子在2018年6月中旬透露了哈弗录取人员给亚裔申请生更低的所谓的“个性评分”,以此为拒绝他们之由。可预料,这引起了一场稍同情亚裔的媒体大波,而7月出头没过多久,川普政府撤销了奥巴马时期推行的大学录取种族平衡政策并颁布了新政策指南的重要举措。同时,亚裔又在纽约市强烈抵抗市长de Blasio提出的将撤销特殊高中考试录取的案,为了种族多元化而改至holistic的录取方式,难以接受在现有制度,那些特殊高中的名额大约百分之七十都占于亚裔学生。加上,芝加哥大学,一所SAT分数分布很高的接近顶尖大学,已经把SAT考试改为可选而非必要的申请件。看来随着亚裔体抗议常春藤的歧视加热而稍有进展的同时,美国的某些其它教育机构又开始给以新的袭击。看来美国社会就是对亚裔不要好啊。为此,我当然也有自己的想法。

对于一位为所谓亚裔孩子平等教育权的活动者所提出的,我是这么说的:

没错,但是我现在不断觉得华裔在美国所争取的社会地位的提升很可能大多会是枉然的,因为美国当权派不愿意太多华人进入美国上层。是,在美国的华人必要敢于为自己的利益抗争,但要现实,不要把太多时间和精力浪费于几乎不可能成功而对自己毫无长远价值的事情上。现在美国优秀的华人太多,已经难以容纳,要移民最好找找别的地方,或者留在中国为增强我们自己主导的体系而奋斗,把它转成有国际竞争力的一流体系。在美国,华人只是会帮着造福望永远把华人以世界二等人对待的美国当权派。

总之而言,这些人我觉得在忽略一个更根本的问题,就是为什么华裔在美国得不到平等。为什么呢,美国还是白人统治的白人大多数国家就不用说了,就是在世界,作为种族,白人的社会地位还是远远更高的,由于白人在前好几百年所积累的,此难以摆脱。没错,东亚人很聪明,又勤奋,智商高一点,这一点在心理统计学界里是几乎绝对认可的,毫无异议的,但是问题是权利和资源掌握在白人手里,这一点白人的精英和统治者是不会轻易放弃的,反而东亚人好,还更有原因被歧视。白人不太在乎黑裔或墨西哥裔,他们不构成任何威胁,而且给予这些被压迫民族一点名额和资源不仅能缓解一些殖民奴役所造成的所有的白人內疚感,还便以表出一点虚伪的慈善,不用说,把资源从主要对手转移至弱者是非常典型常用的增强巩固自己地位的手段。

同一个人,非男性,还发布关于亚裔男性爱受到的歧视的信息,对此,我只能说:

可惜的是,说不定亚裔男性的性(这包括身材,面容,外表)吸引力就是差一些,或者他们由于属于更弱的种族被视为缺乏社会地位。没什么好办法,只能进步自己和做你所能做的进步你所属于的不可脱离的种族。抱怨只会让你显得更加屌丝(loser)。

我在美国长大,但显然与ABC很不一样,还是一直坚持了对自己文化的认同,因为大多ABC所做的真的挺愚蠢的。我一直认识到正宗中国人的势力比在美国被边缘化的ABC的势力要大得多,对种族关系和歧视还是比较现实主义的,可惜像我这样的人实在太少。现在的中国人过于想如何多融入美国白人所主导的社会和体系而非如何把自己主导的体系变得更有国际竞争力,无论如何,华裔在美国只能采取二流的附属的地位,中国人的主力应该放在中国。

中国人不要忘记日本的经历。他们从明治天皇的领导起现代化做得非常成功,不断像世界证明了东方人在现代科技和军事还是有竞争力的,但是最终还是得不到平等的对待,不得不对西方列强发动战争,在此过程中将其它东方人和亚洲人为奴隶和牺牲品,最终由于自己太小而过于扩张还是失败了,最终不得不永远放弃原有的军事大国梦想。虽然日本输了,但是还是打赢了好几场具有先进军事技术水平的战争,也得到了一定的认可,而战后,他们的飞速经济重建和崛起又让西方人刮目相看,把美国的好多科技产品打的落花流水。我还是非常佩服日本人为民族而不服输的精神,他们很多方面比中国人的确素质高,像日本的精英从来没有过永久留在外国乘凉的现象,大多都最终回去为他们的祖国贡献,同时,也很少出日奸,在这一点现在的中国人可以感到羞耻。相比之下,中国人的奴性和民族自卑感要严重得多,若没有毛泽东和抗美援朝的胜利只会远远更差,当然比印度人要强得多了。说起印度人,你看中国人62年把印度打的那么惨,魂飞魄散,现在还要在美国公司受印度人欺负,多么丢人啊。在这一点我的确对当代的中国人感到很失望。说的极端一点,中国人去买美国的那套扯淡,不如勾结俄罗斯人想法把美国打垮。你想想当年斯大林和毛带领的那样的团队是没人敢惹的,斯大林的间谍那么可怕连美国都要搞类似于文革的麦卡锡主义反共浪潮来镇压,把钱学森那样的顶级华人人才也吸引回国了,中国人现在已经失去了这种精神,这是很遗憾的。

现在的中国人经常盲目的崇洋媚外没有什么骨气,经常接近于教条的将与美国体系多近为衡量人的标准,非常的缺乏民族自尊心。台湾人和香港人对大陆人有优越感,因为他们经济更富裕,更西化,没有意识到他们自进入美国的怀抱下都是殖民经济,以附属地位和产品换取了他们的经济和生活水平,而在此过程中,增强了他们的阿Q心态,变得像印度人那样了。的确是,他们和印度人一样少数精英享受了美国的教育和体系,自己发展的很好,但是他们绝对不能算得上真正代表中国人,当然中国人也都为他们的精彩成果感到自豪。一个国家的人才大多在国外只能说明这个国家的国际政治影响力比较微弱。说到这一点,由于领导,毛泽东时代的中国很多方面国际政治影响力比现在远远更富裕的中国都要强,为这一点,现在中国人也应当感到羞耻。

中国人也应该有一定的优越感。虽然自己没有搞出近代科学和工业,落后挨打了,但这不一定说明中国人本质上就是劣势的,可能在身材上某些方面劣势一些,但是这也是次要的。相反,中国那么落后糟糕但为何,类似于日本人,只不过起步晚的多,追赶却那么快呀?不是因为更高的智商和更加刻苦耐劳吗?而这一点,不也通过在美国的优秀刻苦但受歧视的华裔学生加以证实吗?而且中国人还做到了日本人未能的,就是与西方白人打平一仗而建立自己独立的体系和制度吗?中国人在外国还被白人欺负,没办法,这个问题必须靠自己以中国为主的势力来解决,对手还是瞧不起你,不会轻易认输的,只会更加给你施加压力。最终还要看中国人自己的能力了,不是那些为美国机构服务的中国人,而是为中国自己服务的中国人。任务是艰难的。我作为中国人敢直截了当这么说因为我知道无论如何,我不可脱开中国人的面貌,就像俄罗斯人无论和西方多么亲,依然无法脱开共匪的面貌,还是被彻底毁坏了,中国人即是共匪,又是黄种人,就更没有希望了。可惜太少人认识到这一点。反而,汉奸还是特别多,像我说的,中国的整体素质还比日本人要差,我想如果中国不敢为此严厉处置,在内加在外,中国人的希望是不大的,连港台的人心都拉不过来,谈何与白人平等啊。有些人如果品德实在太差而无救,也不要放弃劳改,绝育,甚至灭九族的手段,不用一切向美国学习,美国现在反人类的SJWneocon势力日益增强,无可遏制(消灭就更不用说了),将来它们都可能把美国整个国家搞坏,损失已经很大了,中国人不要一样傻就行了。

On the Trump-Kim meeting in Singapore

I had the great pleasure of catching up in person with a friend doing math PhD in something algebraic geometry-ish at a top school. We had dinner at an Indian restaurant. He asked me what I thought of the upcoming meeting between Trump and Kim in Singapore. It’s something that I hadn’t been paying attention to really, though I was aware of it, and I didn’t really have any opinion.

As of today, the meeting is over. I saw an article about it from Washington Post. Apparently, Trump agreed to halt US-South Korea military exercises, exactly what the Chinese government proposed ahead of the summit, likely in the personal meeting between Xi and Kim well before that, wants to eventually pull out US troops from South Korea, and professes more of less the attitude that though China is violating sanctions on DPRK that it agreed to, there’s nothing that can really be done. It’s impressive that DPRK has manage to resist for so long. America with its might has done so much to try to bring it down with economic sanctions and exclusion from much of the international community, thereby rendering its reputation as a pariah state. The people running DPRK, like them or not, are survivors. They, as a puny little country, managed to develop nukes despite economic sanctions and the crisis resulting from the decline and ultimate collapse of their former puppet master or patron (or whatever you choose to call it), the USSR. Their having nukes (and also being next to China, which America dares not to mess with too much) allowed the Kim dynasty to not end up like Saddam or Gaddafi. They must have felt that with the USSR gone and China’s viewing them as an obstacle towards its international integration that they really needed the nukes to preserves themselves. Though people also say that their long range artillery, with Seoul, where like half of South Korea’s population and economy is, within reach, they have enough to deter a military attack against them. What did they really get from nukes? Some more bargaining chip, because they figure they can always get more by pretending to denuclearize. I can’t blame them really. Anyone will go to the extremes when it’s a matter of survival. If you try to starve a dog to death (but can’t, strictly speaking), he’ll just become a ferocious wild one in order to survive, and that’s exactly what DPRK has done.

This must be quite a blow to the neocons and American supremacists who are so keen on American world domination. Hate to tell them that by now, they’ve probably missed their chance. The way things are going right now, in a decade, South Korea could even become a PRC ally; they will once it’s in the interests of those in positions of power there to do so. What can America provide them? A guarantee that those people currently on top can stay on top. They do that foremost by providing defense against a possible DPRK invasion. I’m skeptical still that US will actually move forward with pulling troops out of South Korea; the ROK elite probably won’t like that, unless those with conciliatory attitudes towards their northern counterparts take over, which could happen. I know little about what the popular opinion is there. I do have Korean friends who tell me that there, if you actually sing a DPRK song in public, you will definitely be arrested, because there really is something to fear. There is quite a history of that there. It is well-established that during the Korean War, after the DPRK first invaded, Syngman Rhee ordered massacres of those perceived as disloyal to his regime. Even in the 80s, when the ROK was already doing much better than the DPRK, there was the Gwangju Uprising, which is like a South Korean Tiananmen Square. Of course, to justify its suppression, it was easy for the government to label the protesters as agent of the enemy regime. Contrary to impressions given by the American media, the South Korean position has been somewhat precarious too, and America has been willing to really invest there. There are even nuclear weapons deployed in South Korea, not just American soldiers stationed there. It’s an ally that is seen as vulnerable and too valuable to lose. Over the years, people have always been asking how long the DPRK can hold on. Now could it be that it is the ROK that will struggle to hold on, at least if remaining a staunch American ally is an absolute must? In some being ROK has being an American lapdog almost as a definitive characteristic, more so than on the other side, with the DPRK’s having had two larger powers bid for its loyalty during the Cold War, and with its more being on its own afterwards. The ROK leadership is seen as more spineless (or less able to hold on their own) than the DPRK leadership, having had America’s military presence directly at home with themselves in the subordinate position ever since the Korean War, whereas the Chinese People Volunteer Army, that basically saved the DPRK regime, left not long after the armistice was signed, though it still maintains a defense treaty that guarantees military protection. Much of that is because China, being so poor and backwards at that time, had scarce resources and enough to deal with at home, while America was, and still is, a very rich country plentiful in resources. Of course, there is also that the American elite seems so much delusional with regard to their own exceptionalism and fanatic about their domination of the world. Unfortunately for them, their efforts have been really backfiring in recent years, with the rest of world’s having caught up and increasingly reluctant to take their orders, which they are now much more capable of resisting. The British Empire possessed the same attitude, and one, from this, gets the feeling that this intent for world domination is much more in the Anglo-Saxon genes. Saxon has association with German, and yes, the Germans produced a Hitler, but it’s reasonable to say he was mostly a reactive force, with Germany’s having been shamed in the Versailles Treaty. The Brits were the pioneers of industrialization, and also the pioneers of colonialism and imperialism (if one discounts the earlier Spanish). The British Empire and its derivative America are arguably also the most fervent about spreading their religious and ideological faith. God, freedom, and democracy. They are also arguably the most delusional there.

The reality with the British Empire and with America is that they were pioneers in many ways, giving them the first mover advantage, but eventually had difficulties competing with the latecomers, who were in many ways more competent. Though economically and technologically, the Anglos may have fallen behind their competitors in certain aspects, the cultural presence established by their earlier victories last much longer. Like it or not, they have been relatively successful at getting the rest of the world to accept and embrace their so called cultural values, through a combination of merit, trickery, and intimidation. They are also arguably the most narcissistic, domineering, and historically scurrilous. They led in terms of their science and technology, with that the merit side. In terms of the lengths to which one deceives and coerces, they led much more. People observes how obscenely rich and powerful individuals, in their business, are cutthroat to the extremes. They will screw over another when it is in their interest to do, meaning of course that they can get away with it. They will engage hypocritically in philanthropy and whatnot to buy their reputations and establish a facade of charity. Analogously, the Anglo world has done this massively with its cultural imperialism of which blatant historical falsification and political deception in the media are the essential ingredient. Some other countries wanted to and tried, to some degree or another, to stop them, but lack the aggressive disposition and material power to do so. Economically and militarily, the Anglo world is of course guilty of displacement of the natives in America and Australia, and even to this day, the UK holds on to the Falkland Islands. Culturally they have been successful; this, along with America’s worldwide network of military bases, which America is increasingly lacking in its ability to economically sustain, are held as socially acceptable, the social norm. This might change though, but it will take a while.

America’s main competitors are China and Russia. Of the two, China is much more threatening. These are countries which have resisted the Anglo political and cultural system to this day, especially China, which is much harder to conquer, out of a combination of its size, competence, and alienness of culture, as a civilization that developed more or less independently from the rest of the world over millennia. The elites of the USSR basically sold out their country to America, whereas the Chinese communist elites managed to resist that. America and Britain had other competitors too, most of all Japan, but Japan was mostly tamed after WWII, and even with its economic and technological rise afterward, it could not escape the confines of the war legacy that it refuses to face. Germany is similar, but its attitude towards its war crimes is the antithesis of Japan’s. This is largely because the countries and peoples which suffered most from Nazism were the ones to destroy it. On the other hand, Japan was defeated by America and the Soviet Union, not by China, who was too weak at the time, though China did play a major role in sinking more of their resources, particularly human resources, which were the main bottleneck, quantitatively, for Japan, as a small nation that had tried very hard and only half-succeeded at playing the game of world imperialism that it entered in too late.

As much as I respect the accomplishments of the Anglo world, I much dislike the what I would call the domineering hypocritical sore loser mentality that this culture tends to channel and accept into their elites. When they are winning, they are arrogant and nasty. When they lose, they tend to do so in a very pathetic way. They are utterly lacking in self-critique and try to force blame on their adversaries. They have plenty of really talented, good people, but they are not very good at letting those people have a say on the important decisions. Since the title of this article is about the Trump-Kim summit, I’ll certainly say that America was quite a sore loser during the Korean War, which I won’t explain, because it is too obvious. This is objective reality; I’m not saying this because I am Chinese. Those anti-communist Chinese in Taiwan and Hong Kong who deny this are ridiculous, and the Anglo world world is just so keen on using such people as tools for sabotage against the real Chinese, except they keep on failing so miserably at it, making a fool of themselves. They are increasingly losing credibility.

Those in HBD will point out differences in temperament between East Asians and whites, which explain differences in social outcomes in individuals and the collective societies of which the individuals are constituents. There is the perception that East Asians are far less aggressive, which is a negative for maverick creativity, enough to offset the IQ advantage enjoyed by East Asians. There are of course some who claim that East Asians have lower variance in IQ explains the putative dearth of East Asian geniuses, though there is hardly any real evidence for this. This is exemplified by how the Chinese historically have been a relatively inward looking people. They made plenty of practical inventions, most notable of them papermaking and gunpowder that were transmitted to the West via the Silk Road, but were grossly lacking in fundamental theoretical contributions to science. Even now, China in foreign policy is relatively passive. There were plenty of crazy Chinese communist radicals, but that was a reactive mechanism of a society under crisis. I don’t see this changing much soon, though as China becomes more powerful and advanced, she will become more confident and care less about what the rest of the world, especially America, thinks. She may even go all out to change international norms to its liking, maybe in another generation. I myself am somewhat of a meek person by nature, but I can also be quite aggressive in certain ways. Like, I don’t uphold any fake ideal of freedom and human rights that Anglo culture so unabashedly and delusionally (perhaps with ulterior motives) promotes; discipline and “totalitarianism” (also call in a lack of American-style PC) certainly are very useful and necessary when defined appropriately in the right context. I am aggressive enough to not buy into much of the BS America sells, culturally and ideologically. If certain groups do a lot of damage, objectively, then it’s definitely a very good idea for them to be rendered irrelevant, by force if necessary. If certain objectively flawed ideas are promoted for the interests for some scumbags, then people absolutely SHOULD organize to resist them instead of standing idly. To me, a malicious person feigning charity is much worse than a very self-interested person who is open about what he wants.

I actually feel like China and Chinese in general could be, and probably should be, much more aggressive at getting their voice out and calling out the BS aspects of America. They shouldn’t be so accepting of it. They need a little more arrogance. And the more economically and technologically powerful and advanced China becomes, the more justification there would be for doing that. Before, China was so far behind that it could not claim much credibility, but that has changed vastly, especially over the past five years, with the trend being much on China’s side. If people don’t feel comfortable doing that, maybe they should work out more to increase their testosterone and confidence. Maybe they can find the genes for that and select for it to remedy the natural ethnic defect. Is this justified? Of course. Even many actually smart white Americans believe this would be better for the world. Quoting someone else, and not to be taken too literally,

A world run by Chinese or Japanese is one where they’d be rich and on top but mostly leave others alone, except to get money from them.

A world run by whites is one where half want to conquer and half want to help.

A world run by Jews is one where they’d systematically extinguish any hope of ending it.

Corresponding with me, Ron Unz concurred, without ever seeing this statement to my knowledge. His words are the following:

Naturally, the Verbal skew among Jews is a significant factor. But personally, I think a much bigger, relatively ignored factor would be what might be called the “Fervency/Fanaticism/Aggressiveness Quotient,” and it wouldn’t surprise me if the Jewish mean were something like 115 or even 120. Meanwhile, the East Asian mean might be down around 85 or 90, which has major social impacts.

Math festival

I had the pleasure of volunteering for a math festival for elementary school children. There were puzzles, mathematical games, various fun math worksheets (sometimes with figures of animals as variable names heh), building blocks, and the likes. It was organized by some Russians working in technical fields in the area, of which one family has produced some relatively distinguished mathematicians, which go back to, of course, the Soviet era. I was thoroughly impressed by their organization, energy, and enthusiasm, as well as their variety. I had briefly attended back when I was a high school student the math circle that they had started well before then even and kept up till now.

Again, this furthers my impression that Russians/Soviets have quite a culture of pure pursuit of excellence, that some highly educated ones in STEM have brought over to the US as well. When they were not satisfied with what kids were getting here, education wise, they started their own math circles. I was actually, at the crypto-arithmetic station I was mentoring, with this adult adult, who was mentoring the same station. I would, expectedly, when there were no kids there, talk with him (occasionally in my very limited Russian) about various things, such as software technology and also competitive programming in Russia. On the latter, this year’s ACM ICPC, held in Beijing, was won by Moscow State and Moscow Institute of Physics & Technology, with Peking University and University of Tokyo taking third and fourth, despite the home field advantage. This is consistent with Russians beating Chinese and Japanese on TopCoder and CodeForces as well, with the former American organized one in decline, much out of its outdated Java Applet (and almost certainly an over-bloated, unmaintainable legacy system) user interface and the latter Russian organized one on the rise. On this, that guy was like: in Russia, people really care about doing things well, in America, people do things for money, which only sometimes leads to good results. He said that back in the Soviet era, life was much better for kids, because activities such as sports and math were free, though of course, there were selection mechanisms in place on limited capacity, which really encouraged kids to become really good at what they chose to do. Moreover, he was like if America, with its abundant resources, actually utilized it very well for education, it would be like a paradise, except that’s far from the case. I told him that it seems like Russia’s economy and science research, despite difficulties, is resurging. On that, I had read on Zhihu that the younger generation of Russians has produced some real stars in math, most notably this guy named Alexander Efimov, who is the youngest invited speaker of the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) this year, or something like that, and they are staying at that Steklov Institute or similar places instead of coming to America. I also brought up my knowledge of the existence of Yandex and vKontakte, Russia’s Google and Facebook respectively, as well as its vibrant defense sector. While at the event, something came to my mind, which was given all the hype of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 elections, will there be backlash soon too for supposed Russian interference in American education, with events like these? Yes, I noticed how the event was full of Russians and parents and immigrant kids of other nationalities, and Americans were few. I like how the Soviet Union and Russia has quite a different ecosystem, both culturally and technologically, which is a positive for diversity. It seems like though Russia is essentially Western culturally, white and Christian, the West is so reluctant to accept her as a member of the Western community, and on the contrary, many of these idiot American politicians are always seeking to give her trouble. On this note, I remember how Gwydion Williams keeps emphasizing and reiterating how the West blundered in the 90s by ruining Russia with awful economic advice instead of more wisely integrating the fallen USSR into the Western system, which she would have been eager to be part on, so long as terms were reasonable. In any case, I find that the USSR left us some pretty damn good stuff culturally, scientifically, technologically, and artistically, and I am willing to acknowledge and appreciate that notwithstanding how many in our current culture might perceive me for it.

Bob Sykes on Disqus once said:

Russia’s economy is often derided as merely Spain East, but the range of things they do indicates that their economy is at least as large as Germany’s and might be as large as Japan’s. Our economists not only produce deeply flawed policies, they can’t even count.

I agree. I heartily believe that GDP is a deeply flawed measure of economic power. It is a very artificial, human construct. It does not take into account the quality or self-sufficiency of the economy, and is prone to artificial inflation. In Russia’s case, it is transparently clear to me that they are grossly underrated, both right now and potential wise, largely for political reasons. It is transparently clear to me that Russia has the advantage of possessing, for the most part, 1) the expertise and infrastructure to create military hardware that is at least close to American/Western levels 2) a highly scientifically literate and technologically skilled workforce and population 3) ethnic and cultural homogeneity (which America certainly lacks and could be ruined by, eventually) 4) a culture and education that emphasizes excellence and substance over superficial flash and showmanship. So despite what on the surface appears to be deep difficulties and a near permanent state of collapse, I am confident that Russia will make quite a comeback in a matter of time. Of course, altering and correcting perception, under American/Western controlled world public opinion and political norms, is another matter.

In order to not digress too much into politics, I’ll conclude with some photos I took from today’s event.
