Apparently, another one of Ren Zhengfei’s daughters is a computer science undergraduate at Harvard

The detaining of Meng Wanzhou, CFO of Huawei and daughter of its founder Ren Zhengfei, at Canadian airport on behest of the US authorities has made headlines the past several days. On that, I have little to say other than that she is quite attractive and also that the half-closeted nepotism via mother’s surname is both amusing and somewhat gross.

Reading her Wikipedia page, I pulled the following

Ren’s first wife was Meng Jun, the daughter of Meng Dongbo, a former deputy governor of Sichuan Province. They had two children: daughter Meng Wanzhou and son Meng Ping, both of whom took up their mother’s surname.[14] After their divorce, he married Yao Ling, with whom he had another daughter, Annabel Yao, who is 25 years younger than Meng Wanzhou. Annabel is a computer science student at Harvard University who made a high-profile debut at Le Bal des Débutantes in Paris in 2018.[14] Ren married for the third time to Su Wei, who was reportedly his former secretary.[14]

Ren’s eldest daughter, Meng Wanzhou, is deputy chairperson and chief financial officer (CFO) of Huawei.[15]

I’m somewhat surprised and also rather disappointed that Ren Zhengfei sent his other daughter, who also took her mother’s surname (and this is a different mother), to Harvard for undergrad. It reminds of how Xi Jinping’s daughter transferred to Harvard from Zhejiang University after her freshman year. I hate to say it but it’ll be hard to take the PRC elites too seriously when they send their children to elite US schools for undergrad. It is a sign that they still lack independence with a need to associate with global homo Anglo elite institutions. On the Chinese internet, people are questioning what other passports besides the Chinese one is possessed by Meng Wanzhou, and it was revealed somewhere that she had a green card from Canada.

Meng for undergraduate merely attended a good but not great university in China. That was when her father, who started Huawei in his 40s, was still a relative nobody. Remember that in China, aside from regional discrimination, wherein Beijing residents are allocated like 10 times more slots at Beida/Qinghua adjusted for population than residents in the provinces, admissions is based purely on gaokao and automatic admission via top performance on the national math and science olympiads. It’s basically impossible for filthy rich and/or well-connected parents to buy one’s kid’s way into Beida/Qinghua in China. So I guess when the kid of someone super high up in China turns out to be intellectually mediocre, attending an elite US school for undergrad becomes the default, sadly.

Something to note, relatedly, is that 富二代 (second generation rich) is a relatively new phenomenon in China. After all, after the communists took power, the rich people had their assets confiscated (like my amusingly pro-communist ABC friend stuck in the US at least for the near future, his family ended up sharing their four story house/building with a bunch of a poor people), and afterwards, people in high up positions did not make much more than the ordinary worker, with the salary difference, based on what I’ve heard, at most a factor of 10, barring very exceptional cases. It was really only after 1980 when it became possible for one to become extremely rich doing business. Between 1980 and 2010. there was a lot of low hanging fruit in China, economically. Plenty of mediocre people with the right entrepreneurial energy/personality became rich. And by that, the class of second generation rich was born, and it seems now they are forming their own culture, with studying abroad paying ridiculous tuition at US universities common, as well as their parents investing in US real estate. It’s very possible and perhaps likely that the class structure in China will solidify over the next generation, as is already the case in the US. How much so, that remains to be seen.

I’ve had some interactions with 富二代 kids and their parents in the US. Many of them are, predictably, not very smart academically. They are basically on permanent vacation in America. Their career/employment prospects in America are not surely not good for obvious reasons. It doesn’t seem like they’re well treated in school by their white peers in America. Yes, their families are economically well off, but that doesn’t mean they can integrate into American society. Their families are able to invest in real estate in America for now; even so, their existence in the US will be a marginal one much confined to the Chinese community. Many of them do not even know English well and are mostly here to invest in real estate, enjoy some material comfort and fresh air, and also send their kids to school here. In most cases, the father based in China only visits every once in a while. They’re obviously not really wanted in America other than for their money, spent on international tuition and luxury brands and so on.

As the reader can tell, I don’t have a high opinion of those 富二代 who send their kids to America and invest in real estate there. Being in China now, I’m sure I’ll learn more about them, including the process they go through to transfer all that money to the US, and maybe I can even influence them a bit. As one can see from the detention of Meng Wanzhou in Canada, there is little guarantee for them on US soil. Finance/economics tells us there is no such thing as a free lunch. They may feel they are winning now and that their assets in America are safe, but this could very much be a process of 温水煮青蛙 (a frog boiled in warm water), where initially one feels warmth, until one gets burned. They may own real estate in America on paper for now, but that real estate is physically in America, where the Chinese do not really control anything. They have no media power, no legal power, no military power there. It’s totally possible for them to suddenly lose everything. Unlikely, but it can happen and only needs to happen once.

The Meng Wanzhou incident has been in Chinese media tied to the death of Stanford physics professor Shoucheng Zhang at age 55 which happened on the same day. The family statement said that it was due to depression, which we all know is just a euphemism. There has been speculation that it was related to the alleged tanking of his Chinese venture capital firm in Silicon Valley. It’s quite tragic that he took his ambition/careerism too far, assuming that his death was related to his VC activity. Had he just remained purely academic, he would have survived and likely eventually won his Nobel. Needless to say, using the prestige of a rare Stanford tenured professorship in physics to raise a Chinese VC is not really what he should be doing while officially in that position. Stanford probably should be somewhat embarrassed about his case as well, in addition to the recent Elizabeth Holmes case that was magnitudes worse. On this, I also have in mind the cases of Lucas Duplan and Evan Spiegel, both quite shameful.

It is my hope that talented, elite Chinese can focus more on developing their institutions at home instead of wasting so much money and energy associating with and working for elite US institutions for signaling. Doing so only inflates the value of a system hostile to Chinese while at the same time de-valuing Chinese institutions. If Chinese are really serious about this trade war, they should be going out of their way to devalue Harvard and Stanford, to devalue Google and Facebook, not eagerly trying to attend those schools for undergrad for a rather mediocre academic educational experience and making such a big deal about working for those companies, whose programmers are generally no better than ones in a good internet company in China as far as I can tell. If Chinese want other people to respect and value them, then they ought to first have confidence in their own institutions. I say this having been in prestigious US institutions myself, interacted substantially with numerous people from there, and frankly, many of them are not all that great, with some depressingly mediocre or even problematic. Of course, there are also plenty of genuinely brilliant, accomplished people in America in top American institutions. Overall, my point is that it’s clear that America will not judge the Chinese well, so why expend so much trying to associate and fit in with America? Why not instead expend more energy into creating a system where what America thinks simply becomes more or less irrelevant?

 

A call to boycott Jewish media

A few days ago, on WeChat, somebody sent me the following screenshot,

which just goes to show how egregious censorship really is in America.

So, I have some American friends who I wish to tell some things, but I am hesitant to over Gmail/Facebook, the two most common means of communication in America now, for the reason that I don’t want a permanent record of the information stored within an American institution run by people I have no reason to trust with that information.

This is something I’ve been aware of for quite a long time but have mostly kept to myself. You see, there are guys like Andrey Martyanov who are very much against virtual Jewish control of America, yet ironically, he uses blogspot (which was acquired by Google I believe) to blog and Gmail as his email. If he is so against Zionism, why is he trusting an arguably Zionist institution with his information and communications and thereby indirectly endorsing it? He is a Russian who came to the US in the 90s when there was economic crisis in Russia. Why can’t he use a Russian email instead?

Now, when a Russian from Russia emailed me with a mail.ru email, I felt much more comfortable communicating with him. It feels very different talking with a Russian in Russia. Unlike with a Russian in America, I don’t have to worry that he’s some idiot US loving liberal. Or at the very least, I don’t have to worry that some American boss can extort him or at least influence him into some degree of submission. He’s in Russia where he doesn’t have to give a fuck about a US law that would by default side against him, where there are no US taxes or English as the official language.

Having been in China for a while interacting with almost exclusively locals, I no longer view most Chinese in America as truly Chinese. Especially if they refuse to a Chinese medium of communication like WeChat, especially if they insist on using Gmail or Facebook, both explicitly blacklisted in China. In that case, I will refuse to share any serious information with them. If they insist on trusting Jewish controlled American institutions with their personal information, then they will have to bear its consequences. The longer they persist with this, the less likely their ancestral home country will accept them. They will have then placed their fate into the hands of people who have basically no reason to care about their wellbeing.

Somewhat predictably, some of my friends in America seem reluctant to register a WeChat to communicate with me or with others on there with common views who they might be interested in connecting with. They may be similarly unhappy with much of America right now, in particular its ruling class, but they either do not care enough to do anything at all, don’t know how to go about it, or are afraid to. Yes, venting on Quora and Reddit are options, but experience has told us that being banned from Quora on trumped up charges for writing eloquent answers which displease its VCs is a very real possibility. That has in fact happened to a former top writer with 8500+ followers.

My main message is that if you dislike Silicon Valley or the American Jewish establishment so much, you’re not completely stuck with them. You can get out of America, though it might be difficult, as it requires finding a job in and moving to another country. For as long as you are stuck in America, you don’t have to use Facebook or Gmail either, except when really necessary. For your private personal communications, you can register for and use a non-American email provider or messenger, like WeChat.

As for monitoring by the Chinese government, they absolutely won’t give a damn unless you try to organize some serious anti-China political activity on there. Even if you talk the cliche human rights, communist dictatorship crap on a small scale on there, there’s basically a 100% guarantee that nobody will care. Nobody internal will care enough to go to the trouble to read your messages. In fact, both Tencent and the Chinese government might well be happy to see more internationalization of their product.

By boycotting certain mainstream American internet products, you not only transfer a tad of both data and advertising revenue to whatever else you are using in place. You also send a political message that encourages more people like you to do the same, thereby making it more socially acceptable behavior. Not to mention how through that, you might meet some interesting people who may lead you to some good opportunities, as happened to myself.

I shall conclude by saying that there is little point in fighting from within if your political views are marginal or directly at odds with the American mainstream as societies are naturally top down. In some sense, you cannot achieve anything serious without being part of the mainstream of whatever organization or society you are part of. Yes, go find the minority of people in America who think like you, but in addition to that you are likely to reap a bigger fruit connecting with people outside America, not difficult in today’s internet world. Do what you need to do for minimum survival but past that, the best way to protest is to ignore and detach, not by arguing with or trying to influence people fundamentally opposed to you.

On the global homo Anglo world order, its origin and its implications

I have a very smart and unusually politically perceptive WASP American friend, who placed at or at least near the top at elite math contests. He once said to me the following:

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.

I feel that before he said this, I was still somewhat half asleep on this matter. I was subconsciously aware but perhaps not consciously so. And over time, my understanding of this, the last sentence in particular, grows only more profound. In some sense, what is described there is much already happening.

Like it or not, America is still by far the most powerful or at least the most politically influential country in the world. And since that Jews have already solid control at the highest echelons of the most influential organizations in America, like Goldman-Sachs, like Google, like Harvard, all of which are relentlessly absorbing and influencing people, elites especially, globally to a point of no, or at least, difficult return, one can argue that that above hypothetical scenario is already very much alive.

In the 20th century, America has aimed to bring in and brought in elites from other countries into its system and order much more so than any other big nation. The Soviet Union did to some extent as the pioneer of the socialist system, which it sought to internationalize, but it’s hardly debatable that even during the relative height of the Soviet Union, the level of “Sovietization” of the world was much less so than the Americanization of the world, let alone after its collapse. China is now powerful and increasingly so but its latecomer status and more so its alien culture more or less render impossible direct global political and cultural influence the way that America, and more generally, the Anglo world has done. It is expected that China will become by a wide margin the world’s largest economy, with at the same time indisputably world class science and technology and military, including core innovative ability and capacity, by the end of this century at the latest. But it is hard to imagine a real Sinicization of the world. China is the ancestral homeland of Chinese, unlike America, a new immigrant nation founded on dispossession and white supremacy; mass immigration to China will simply never be allowed. At the same time, Chinese language and culture is too different from that of the rest of the world to spread to the rest of the world, for the same reason that the English language did not spread to China even though the West during the turn of the 19th century, so much more modern and powerful, easily brought China to her knees, with implicit reference to the aftermath of the Boxer Rebellion. It is difficult to foresee anything other than a strong degree of isolation for the Chinese in mainland China, with this extending to East Asians in general, though far more so for the Chinese in mainland China due to the diametrically opposite political ideology in addition to race, language, and culture.

It is reasonable for anyone cynical at the slightest to believe that there were and still powerful political forces in Anglo world seeking to irreversibly absorb China into the Anglo system in an unequivocally subordinate position. This has been achieved with Korea as well as with Japan as part of the post-war arrangement. It was their hope that similar could be done with China. The strategy was and still is to cultivate a significant segment of the Chinese elites and population at large that would act in a way that would inextricably bind China to America in such a way that would extinguish any hope that China seriously challenges America on the world stage. This would secure America’s position as the world’s number one, and as a derivative, secure Jewish world domination.

There appears the pattern that the Jewish elites encourage immigration into America. Again, from the cynic’s perspective, it is a mechanism for transmission of American culture and influence throughout the rest of world that would corrode the ability of competing nations and ideologies to challenge the dominant American one. The Jews have already won America. Even if the immigrants and/or their descendants realize that they will always be subordinate in America to the Jews at the top, they won’t really be able to challenge it under the American system. In America, they cannot form their own armies, and Jews will not pass on real political power to them. Stasis will set in in a virtual caste system in liberal democratic America.

According to a Chinese professor, what Jewish elites fear most are political strongmen, with reference to the recent indefinite extension of Xi Jinping’s tenure. In a democratic society, when the president or chairman or whoever changes every few or several years, Jews won’t give a damn about you at all, because your political foundation is very weak. They fear more political strongmen in the likes of Hitler, in the likes of Putin, who would have the ability to disrupt many Jewish plans.

Democracy really is a form of political mediocrity, permitting nothing too extreme. It is at worst very ineffectual or disastrous in the case of 90s Russia and at best unable to achieve anything spectacular. In a dictatorship with a strong ideological basis, the worst is Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan (both of which were of objectively very formidable competence) or maybe Pol Pot (of a very different nature) and the best were USSR before decline and PRC China which achieved miracles and were both extremely successful. Of course, there are plenty of relatively mediocre and bland minor “dictatorships” out of there who most people could not care about. The point is that dictatorship of a certain form is the most conducive to strong ideology, conviction, organization, and efficiency, and thus radical political change in a naturally top down human society. This requires time and thus the importance of long tenure of at least 10 years of a political strongman with a clear direction. It is like how someone who stays and focuses on the same field or job for 10 years generally achieves much more than an unfocused job hopper.

As already mentioned, concomitant with liberal democracy in the Anglo world is support or at least tolerance for racial and cultural diversity in the sense of having people of diverse racial and cultural backgrounds sharing the same land, and as a consequence of which, some degree of miscegenation. Ironically, its inevitable cultural de-heterogenization per spread of the Anglo language and culture to other races actually much reduces global genetic and cultural variance. In doing so, it does poison the Anglo culture itself to some extent but even more so, it is a form of global cultural and political monopoly by a system that the Jews have already won. What is going on here is already in effect systematic extinguishing of the hope of ending a world largely run by Jews. It is the bringing about of an ever more irreversible mediocrity fundamentally motivated by the desire for a closed, entrenched elite to consolidate power that can be likened to cultural and political sterilization of the other to eliminate her potency.

In summary, along this line of argument, the Zionists are already engaged in a process of what is fundamentally a perversion or destruction of civilization to ensure that their rule persists indefinitely. To them, forces still independent from the Anglo liberal democratic system they control, mostly China and Russia, need to sterilized and decapacitated at all costs, with the ends justifying the means. That means whatever “dictators” associated with the two ought to be slandered beyond proportion. That means that even though the Soviet Union much saved the world from a Holocaust perpetrating Nazism, its decisive contribution for the WWII allied victory ought to be erased from the history books, with credit transferred to the American, now proxy for Israel, side.

Andrey Martyanov on Unz Review has written the following.

There is Russian Left and Chinese Left and they look completely different next to Western Left. But we may move even further–so called Western Left is not really Left, it is a brand assigned to it by people who practice faux-scholarship. Reality and a driving force of the Western Left is not so much Marxism, to which this W.Left appeals when it suites it, but still good ol’ liberalism. Western Left is a pinnacle of liberalism, it is its final form which atomized society utterly and in doing so undermined its foundation. The United States was a perfect nation to do so, it is the same as it is a perfect nation, as an example, for organizing Holocaust industry and selling it as a guilt medicine and use it as a coercion tool, the practice also imposed on war-torn Europe by its alleged “liberators”. It is also a perfect country to subvert its foreign and defense policies because the United States doesn’t know what REAL war is. Even rabid Russophobe Richard Pipes openly admitted it. In the end, United States never formed as a true nation. In many respects popular American 20th “history” of Russia is so consistently associated with “Jewishness” (apart from obvious ignorance of those who write it) because it is projection of own complex of inferiority. Russia changed Jews, Jews changed the United States and this inequality will exist and this is one which bothers greatly many of those WASPies in the US who have to face the fact that Russia didn’t sell out to Jews, while the United States today is effectively run by them in key sectors of national activity. This Russia-USSR-Bolsheviks-Jews-GULAG mantra is needed as a therapy for very many Americans in order to block out how they, and others, sold out their country to these very same Jews. Especially against the background of once great country literally turning into the third world multicultural cloaca with grim or no prospects at all. Sad, especially when one looks at purely American phenomenon of a vast strata of Christian Zionists loyal to Israel–an exhibit A of America’s failure to form as a cohesive nation.

Here, what he is essentially saying that Anglos are culturally such a weak people that Jews managed to take over the media, culture, and politics of America from the WASPs despite being outnumbered at least 10 to 1. On the other hand, Russia changed Jews and kept them fundamentally in line with Russian interests despite that the Jewish population percentage in Russia was so much higher. The Chinese are arguably viewed by the Zionists are much more of a threat due to the alienness of Chinese culture in addition to their competence. It would simply be impossible for the Jewish parasite to blend in among the Chinese and thus, she can be there a parasite not. Essentially, the Jewish strategy was to prey on the weak and vulnerable Anglo culture and once they successfully took over that host society abundant in power and resources, they are leveraging it to infect other powerful societies much culturally stronger with the hope of sinking them too into the oblivion of the global homo Anglo world order.

Again, there is no way that Jewish domination of America can be removed from within. Even if the truth is realized, those against it but already submerged into the American system can do nothing in effect to change it, as Jewish seizure of the highest echelons of power in what has already been transformed into a multicultural democracy has rendered organization and instigation of an internal revolution impossible. So if it is to change, it must come from without. If it is to change, this host society must be such that its internal order and prolificness is exhausted enough that it disintegrates and collapses from within. Along then will die the parasite that can live not without its host.

 

微信转发给我的文章“美国是天堂吗?一个资产过亿中国人移民美国6年后的自白!“

是一位中国理论物理学家转发给我的,他在美国也做过交流。读了此文,我基本完全认同他的说法,尤其是美国意识形态教育可怕的那一点。

下面将此复制,图片和广告就不包括了。

I’ll further comment that having been in it from first grade through university the American school environment seems very effective at culturally cleansing those of Chinese descent as was done to that person’s kid despite his having done up to sixth grade in China. It is indeed 非常可怕, and again I did what I could resist the cleansing.

Seeing his shock on how just 2 or 3 years of brainwash in America managed to override a preceding 12 years of it in China, evidence of futility of Chinese education, I have a few thoughts on the matter. One, his kid is somewhat on the extreme end there; of course it didn’t help that he was put in schools full of rich white kids. Two, this has become a problem in China too, an invasion of toxic American liberal ideology. Banning Google and Facebook, and now also Reddit and Quora, is not enough. On how to solve this, I have a proposal, a rather unrealistic one at this point in time: change the de facto foreign language in China from English to Russian, China already had experience with that in the 50s and time has showed that Russian culture is more compatible with Chinese culture than the Anglo one. If China is going to secede from the world by walling off Jewish controlled Anglo media, it should do so full force, not half-heartedly.

美国是天堂吗?一个资产过亿中国人移民美国6年后的自白!

2018年5月,一亲戚想办投资移民,火急火燎地找了一所美国律师事务所。同时,希望找熟悉的人问问投资移民应该注意什么,多久能拿到美国绿卡,什么样的美国律所可靠,会不会被骗,风险多大等。正好一位好朋友6年前办过美国的投资移民,所以找到他咨询。

他1960年底生人,上世纪80年代末上海一名校毕业后进入银行系统,90年代末开始自己创业,移居纽约前,他在山东工作生活,主要做投资,积攒了不少财富。据他自己讲,移民那会,他手头现金上亿。

我们一聊近2个小时。在了解情况后,他坚决反对计划移民者(女,国内名校毕业后到美国读完硕士,父母均为四五线城市的相对高收入者)移民,认为美国远非想象的那么美好,“不要把孩子往火坑里推”。

他说,在中国,6万—10万元人民币的家庭收入,生活要比美国中产阶级幸福的多,向上流动的概率也高得多,普通中国人移民美国,将遭遇难以想象的文化、生活、工作等方面的隔阂和难题,移民三四代后可能会好一些,但那时,后辈与你移民的初衷已大相径庭,Ta不再属于你、你的家庭、家族和中国。

以下是与对方对话的大致情况,为方便阅读,保留第一人称,小题为整理者所加。

01

传言中的美国与

真实生活的美国相差迥异

没来美国前,我和大多数中国公共知识分子一样,对国内很多方面持批评态度,对美国则崇拜的不得了,觉得那是人类目前最自由最美好的生活,有最合理的社会制度,实际上,美国也确是我自己的梦想之一,对于80年代的大学生,美国诱惑太大,工作后多次到美国出差,更是觉得那是一个伟大的国度。

这些年看美国电影和美剧也多,其中展示的普通美国人多住在别墅洋房里,进一步强化了美国无限美好的印象。但在美国待了近7年后,我才知道,我们原来看的都是表面,当你真正在美国生活、深入了解美国后,发现我们那会教科书提及的西方资本主义的腐朽堕落,全都是真的。

我是在孩子小学毕业后办的移民,此后主要时间和精力都和孩子在美国生活。

接触了美国各个阶层,对美国社会有进一步了解后,我发现,在美国的多数华人打拼后过上中产阶级的生活并不难,毕竟移民到美国的,多是国内的知识和财富精英,但美国中产的生活并不像想象的那么好。

美国中产收入按可比价格计算,差不多如同我所在的山东家庭年收入6万至8万元人民币这个水平。一个年薪10万美元的中产算收入高的,在扣除联邦税、州税、FICA等杂项后,到手的不会超过7万美元,合每月6000美元左右,除去交401k等各类保险、社保,到手能用的也就2000—3000美元。

这个收入决定了他们的孩子基本上享受不到太好的教育,因为美国最好的学校多是私立教育,一个月上万美金很正常,普通中产家庭几乎不可能承受。教育等方面的投入差距决定了他们一般固定在相应的阶层。

我生活在山东二线城市,年收入5万—10万元的家庭很多,按现有的购买力,这个收入保障孩子上好点的学校多数是没有问题的,而且大部分上升渠道也是打开的。美国貌似什么都是开放的,但你根本够不着。

他这个制度设计的一个优势就是,你够不着还让你把责任都归咎于自己,从而保持着整个社会的相对稳定。当然,它的美元体系让美国人能享受到全世界的廉价资源和产品,使得即便是普通中产,衣食住行等基本生活保障也都是不错的。

但另一方面,美国的穷人比例比中国更高,贫民窟很多,处境比中国更难,政府救济其实少的可怜。

和美国相比,中国现在的穷人算幸福的,听老家人说现在农村贫困户经常有各级政府去关心,还提供就业机会,这确实是中国特色,在西方国家这是不可思议的,资本的贪婪和冷酷也不允许它这么做,当然,不包括慈善。

在美国,大约0.5%左右的顶级精英,像比尔盖茨、库克、扎格伯克等;5%—10%的普通精英,70%左右的中产阶层,其他都属于生活较艰难人群。

02

要想进入美国主流

精英群体非常非常难

很多进入美国的中国人认为,只要自己努力,一定能在美国混出个模样来。其实,在美国成功的华人极为有限,即便三四代移民后,相对于大量移居美国的高素质华人,能进到美国精英阶层的少之又少,他们中99%都成了美国芸芸众生中的一员,美国的阶层固化非常严重,你几乎没有能力冲破。

而且,无论你如何优秀,你会发现美国白人社会很难接受黄种的亚裔,尤其是华裔,很多优秀的中国人甚至在印度裔的管理和欺压下。

按财富计,我应该属于美国顶级阶层的那个人群,我的的房子在美国最富有的几个顶级精英旁边,我英语也还不错,在美国六年多,我进了不少圈子,认识了很多精英人群,但我能深深地感受到他们和你的那种距离感,你融入不进去,这与你努力与否无关,他们根本不接受你作为一个中国人的努力。

03

移民二代会很快以自己是一个美国人自豪,并试图抹去自己身上的移民痕迹。但假以时日,他发现并不能融入美国白人主流社会,进而产生巨大的挫败感。

我有自己的经济基础,就希望孩子在美国有最好的教育,他也享受到了美国顶级精英所受的教育。同时,我们也兼顾国内的全才式培养。

6年下来,花在孩子身上的钱近2000万元人民币,孩子很快因为自己是一个美国人自豪,因成绩出众且爱好广泛,包括美国精英社交中涉足的一些体育项目,孩子也在一对一顶级教练的教授下出类拔萃,这给他带来了自信。

但到十一、十二年级(即中国的高二高三),他发现自己很孤单,因为原来非常好的那些白人同学或朋友开始疏远他,而他又渴望融入。

与此同时,孩子又带给我无尽的痛苦,我们的矛盾冲突越来越大,让我深感无力。

我小孩在山东读完小学六年级来的美国,应该说,基本价值观已经成型了,但在美国待了两三年后,他全盘接受了美国文化,竟然开始看不起自己的父母,认为我们骨子里有反人类普世价值的根子,这让我异常吃惊,也异常沮丧。

我们一些思想也许与美国基督教和商业文化有冲突,但不应该被自己的孩子视为异教徒,我们奉行中国最正统的价值理念,仁义礼智信、温良恭俭让一直都是我们对孩子的要求,也是我们恪守的信条和做人底线,怎么就成了反人类了?!中国倡导的核心价值我认为与西方的所谓普世价值并没有本质冲突。

自此,我感受到美国文化和美国社会远不是媒体宣扬的那样,它骨子里视自己为现代文明的灯塔,对异域文明具有极端的排他性和狭隘性。同时,感受到美国意识形态教育的可怕。

我们在家都普及中国文化,讲中文,但孩子在美国待了两三年后却否认自己的祖国,认为自己国家的历史充斥着谎言,背离了真实,这让我觉得尤其不可思议。都说我们的意识形态教育多严,“洗脑”教育如何厉害,可我们洗了孩子12年的脑,却经不起美国三两年的历史观教育,可见我们的教育要不是无效的,要不就是形同虚设。

孩子现在基本把中国的一切都丢掉了,并引以为耻,也许等他更年长一些会唤醒中国文化基因,但目前看,他全盘接受了美国价值观和美国光荣史。

美国短短200多年的历史,弄得好像全球文明史都是他的一样。我原来以为我的孩子极端,过分迷恋美国文化,是个案,后来接触不少华裔,发现具有一定的普遍性,国内要深刻反思并检讨我们的史观教育。

从我的经历看,孩子是在高二下学期开始经常抱怨同学对他的歧视。他上的是贵族精英学校,参加的各类课外班级也都是顶级俱乐部孩子,所以代表了美国精英阶层对他的排斥,尽管他的学习举止非常好,但无济于事,他无法得到需要的认同。

此前在初中和这些同学关系都非常好,逐渐成人后孩子们组建起自己的圈子。要知道,在异国他乡没有圈子,没有认同感,对一个人的心理冲击会非常大,小孩之后又把这些情绪发泄到我们头上。

我小孩已经拿到美国几所顶级名校的录取通知了,但我已经意识到他不会被美国精英社会接受。我现在想的是,如果我在国内花同样的钱,用同样的精力,孩子的优秀应该不会亚于他今天取得的成绩,但已经无可挽回。

我决定今年春节后回山东生活,一些人认为我年岁大了想落叶归根,其实不是,我是看到了美国社会的病态,它完全不是我从中国公知、媒体和各类社交媒体中获知的美国。

中国有污染的空气,但中国有更多美国没有的机会和相对宽容的环境,美国所谓的上流社会,你几乎是挤不进去的。但不在美国亲身生活,你不会有这种感受。

中国人死要面子,在美国的很多苦痛是不说的,这让人觉得美国很光鲜,加上回国带点美国的coach、levis等品牌包和衣服等回去,让大家觉得国内几千的东西在美国竟然如此便宜,美国简直就是天堂,其实根本不是。

我认识一对夫妇:男的清华本硕毕业后到美国师从诺贝尔奖得主,现博士毕业在纽约一高校,科研经费很少,生活拮据。他爱人是自己的高中同学,在北大本硕博后F2签证到美国,至今在美近10年,期间因为生了2个小孩,成为全职太太。

这对夫妻的原生家庭在国内有些关系,前些年家人让回去,他们认为应该混个样子出来再回,这两年想回,却因年近40岁顾虑重重,感觉优势不明显了,也担心国内人际关系复杂,就这么耗着。

我去过他们居住的地方,还属于美国的底层,孩子每月还需要政府给点救济,他们的目标应该就是进入中产行列。

他们夫妇俩很努力,但下一代的未来其实已经注定,因为他们的未来是看得见的,其经济境况决定了他们的孩子不可能接受美国的精英教育,这就意味着下一代已经输了,但他们享受着来自中国老家的虚荣,老家都以他们在美国为傲,而他们回国展示的都是在美国光彩的部分,其实这和他们的真实生活反差很大。

如果在国内,清华北大毕业的他们如此努力上进,会比在美国好的多,成就可能也会大得多,从这个意义上,我们培养的大量优秀人才被美国这个巨大的社会绞肉机吞噬了,非常可惜,我们应该有机制来盘活这批人才。

现在大家都在说中国各种不好,又把美国描绘的天堂似的,其实现实不是这样。美国的阶层固化非常严重,相对而言,国内的机会和上升渠道要畅通的多,尽管我们有很多问题,有很多不满,但与美国相比,我们依然有不少好的地方,也有可能是因为出过国的更爱国吧,我现在的观念有了很大变化。

接受了美国文化和价值后,觉得做个普通公民就很好,那这个移民意义就不大了,对华人是个精神和思想上的挑战,更是无尽的苦痛。

儒家文化鼓励进取,有通过自己努力做人上人的基因,从来不认命,希望一代比一代强,而在美国华裔移民又很难成为“人上人”,所以会很痛苦。

美国文化觉得当个清洁工也挺好,都是社会不可或缺的,但中国人会认为,我要在国内付出这么多,一定能出人投地。美国的天花板你顶不破,亚裔能出头的非常少,你会不甘心,尤其是第一、第二代移民,不甘心“泯与众人”,中国人的基因很难接受这样的结果。

如果你想过一般人的生活,那你可以去,但我们骨子里希望成人上人,这是黄种人的基因密码。此外,我认为美国中产阶级过得并不轻松,但因为他信奉上帝,内心平静,能坦然接受并享受其中,我们要做到不容易。

Reflections on the airplane in China

I’m on the airplane in China right now with nothing to do so I write this. The person next to me is watching an American movie with Chinese subtitles. Having been in China for almost a month, seeing that screen feels foreign to me, there are mostly some white people and a few black ones too. On that I shall say that my mental state has much changed being surrounded by people like myself for no more than 30 days. In America my only access to the culture and environment of what is to be my natural habitat was indirectly and very imperfectly through Chinese in America as well as the Chinese Internet. But that is nothing like actually being in China surrounded by Chinese people and their way of life in cities built in their own style. After just this little bit of time, much has changed as for my mental defaults, perhaps most prominently that now a pretty woman is instinctively East Asian as opposed to white. The power of advertising, the power of propaganda. I had been exposed to propaganda all my life in America nonstop and now I’m China I experience one in the reverse direction, with crudely speaking a cancellation effect underway.

Almost instinctively I no longer care or fear anything near as much what whites think. This is actually natural for almost everyone in China. They have no direct contact with white people or with people of any other race really. White people are pretty much invisible in their lives excepting an occasional model advertisement in public and appearance on some world news on TV. This is in stark contrast to in America where communication is so stilted in comparison because there are a zillion races which the multicultural environment naturally conditions one to fear pissing off either intentionally or by accident. One reason why I’m not optimistic about America. Sure America can attract smart people from all over the world. But there is also that given how people of one race already have enough difficulty getting along, how much of a problem it becomes when there are many races of vastly different cultures and inherently competing interests sharing the same space. Maybe that is much a reason why now China’s airports render the ones in America shabby in comparison. Even in a second tier city the magnificence of the airport instantly made an impression on me. Of course America is still more advanced and of higher innovative substance in core science and technology but even there the advantage is dwindling.

I increasingly view my experience growing up in America as an ethnic Chinese as an abnormal one essentially forced upon me. It’s human biological nature for races to self segregate, this is instinctive and it’s really modernity that has made possible people like me. Biologically and culturally, whites and East Asian are far far apart. It’s nothing like the difference between Han Chinese and the Mongols or that between the English and French. And so it’s also natural that the Chinese in America are perpetual foreigners who die out in a few generations with high outmarriage and low birth rates. It’s like a pollutant entering water that eventually becomes absorbed in, no longer visible to the naked eye. Of course there has been a continuous stream of it entering to replenish but mostly uniformly there is quite a low half-life.

I am the rare type of pollutant who opts to leave that system for self preservation. Yet owing to my having entered and stayed in formative years I continue to with my fluent and still prolific English writing infect readers and minds within. I am in some sense a product of American liberalism. It was the invasion of toxic American liberal ideas into my native land in the 80s and 90s along with some slots opened for entrance into the land of its gospel that attracted people like my mother and many other Chinese of that generation. Most of their offspring were absorbed and tamed under the new system, yet I resisted and am now in some sense retreating and launching some sort of counterattack. What was it of this gospel that so repelled and disgusted me? That is quite complex and not to be elaborated on here. In any case, it is evidence of lack of universality of that gospel in its power to attract, its power to deceive.

The West as represented by America is now nihilistic. It seeks perpetual expansion but in the long run that brings in outsiders to its culture and eventually to its own lands. It moves and mixes races and peoples to the point where the mixing becomes the norm that goes on eventually to the point of no return. It seeks much, inadvertent and complicit, to destroy itself and everyone else along with it. The West has unleashed a force it cannot control unto itself that may well end with its own tragic destruction. With reference to the words of Duke of Qin, civilization is fragile and its continuation requires constant shepherding. Especially in the modern world so small and interconnected dangerous in a way never before for racial and cultural survival.

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.
