Steve Hsu(徐道辉)

以前挺崇拜这个人的,现在评价对他越来越低了。他能力的确很强,而且很全面,能拿到美国不错或至少还可以的大学的理论物理终身教职,同样还创办了网络安全公司以26百万被收购,能够破竹子天花板当上大学高层行政人员,而且体育也强,中学搞了游泳比赛,大学打了橄榄球,后来还搞柔道,这种混合才华是少见的。对,他还研究智商和基因的关系,最近为此创办了公司,在这方面在美国也颇有影响力。然后他的博客每个月有十万多点击。可是呢,他没有一项做到最好或接近最好,理论物理,大陆过来的比他强的至少好几个,张首晟强得多了。硅谷创业一个26百万的收购也真的不算啥。体育他离专业水平就更远了。

我最近得知他开创的那家公司还把一个翻墙的工具在01年的时候部署到了中国,为此他拿了CIA的钱,并且得到了纽约时报及其他美国主流媒体的宣传。

我跟一位体制内背景的人说了他,那个人也对徐产生了兴趣,可是对他评价也不是特别高。总而言之,觉得徐有政治能力但是是那种符合美国已形成的体制和文化谋取成功的政治能力,做的更多一种模型美国亚裔,很优秀但是还是服从体系的,为了自己的事业发展不敢对其作出任何挑战。反而,这人觉得我的政治能力从某种角度更强,比如我的博客写的东西有点含量,不像徐那些只不过是引用别的文章或视频自己也就做点小评论。我的反应是徐的做法的确是那种比较现实主义的,没什么错或不好,挑战权威反而经常才是愚蠢的破坏自己事业的做法。

我告诉了那个人徐是蒋介石的远亲并且他开的公司所做的。他说若不是那个,徐或许在中国还能拿个政协委员,觉得他做了那个并在NYT宣传之比网上骂骂反tg还要严重。徐总是强调统计严谨,强调自己是理论物理学家,用什么controlling for all other variables including family wealth and legacy status, Asian-Americans are significantly less likely to get admitted,这类的一般人不愿意听的语言。他再强调客观再强调不要情绪化,我也能看出他对中国的一些问题的回避心理。他是蒋介石的远亲,父亲解放前赴美读博并留下了,家里保持了反共的政治姿态,他和他哥哥都考虑了去美国的军事学校,并且他也在他博客强调他父亲是一位patriotic American。用另一句话说,他是买办亡国奴的后代,他再有能力,很多中国人也会瞧不起他,甚至仇恨他。与祖国从新建立关系的机会他不是没有,九十年代零零年代他都有机会,可是零零年代初,他却拿了CIA的钱,赌了在中国搞和平演变的那套,现在事实或许让他心里难以接受,自己也意识到了他自己的孩子随着中美关系未来二十年只会更加恶化的国际形势在美国不会有太好的前途。其实我觉得他的孩子不会太差,有这样的美国喜欢的相对信任的国民党买办家庭背景,有他那么好的基因,能力也不会差,美国给华裔的好位置还是会他们优先,只不过如果中美真正特别闹翻了,他们的日子也不会太好。

徐最近自己办了个节目,视频放到YouTube上,关于中国,他选择了采访Kaiser Kuo,也是国民党背景在美国长大的人,不过这人倒是八九十年代就在中国工作了,搞了什么摇滚出了名,后来给百度做了公关。那个视频我懒得看,美国华人,尤其那些没在中国长大的,讲中国的大多是垃圾,就很快翻了翻语音记录,就完了。

在评论里,他写了个

2019-03-08 下午6.02.29

最后他还表示自己觉得美国和其盟友孤立中国会对他心中的祖国美国有帮助。为此,我这么回了他

China already has nation wide face recognition deployment. When you check into hotels, for instance, they match a photo they take of you with the one on your id card. AI is mostly an engineering, I don’t see that much point in much of the AI theory research done in academia. Neural nets/backpropagation is something any good theoretical physicist could have come up with given the right motivation. Back when it was discovered in the 70s, there was not enough computing power for it to be useful so it was still treated much as a curiosity/theoretical construct. So I don’t regard the idea itself as that valuable even. It’s more about the later refinement and implementation at scale.

China seems much faster at getting shit done. Like, food delivery and mobile payment is already well implemented and taken for granted in China. It has to do with that Chinese work hard and efficiently and it also has to do that they make decisions faster, much less time wasted arguing.

Not that a decoupling wouldn’t hurt, but that it’s too late for it to be decisive.

Decoupling would only benefit China. If you examine closely, China has not gotten much from direct interaction with America in modern times. What America has given China is mostly a destructive comprador class coupled with toxic liberal ideology. Forcibly seizing their assets and investing such capital into industry and modernization back in the 50s has proven to be decisive to where China is today.

Even after the reform and opening up, what genuinely critical technology has China actually gotten directly from America? It’s really difficult to think of. Most of the core technology China has developed was done by domestic institutions and in the case of the military ones, with some input from Russia and Ukraine. I can’t think of any Chinese institution that actually developed serious technology while interacting closely with America. Lenovo the PC maker is basically a PC assembly shop based off Intel and Windows that moved its headquarters to USA after the IBM Thinkpad purchase, nothing to write home about. Its founder is now widely despised in China. On the other hand, Huawei has developed some serious technology, and its founder never had any experience abroad. His company doesn’t IPO and he doesn’t ever go to America to status whore with Silicon Valley billionaires the way Jack Ma does. I’ve even heard from government people in China that Jack Ma is going to end up in jail eventually, which I found hard to believe.

Plenty within the former rich and educated in China supported the Chinese communists, and they were naturally integrated into the new system with high positions. They gave up some of their wealth for the greater good and after that they were still much better off than the average Chinese. Unfortunately, there was also a group of 买办亡国奴 who thought it was a better idea to continue to act as puppets for a nation and race that treats them like dogs and only rewards them to the extent that they are useful while entertaining delusions of superiority. Shame, shame, shame…

我觉得那些国民党跑到海外的华人精英也形成的他们的圈子和社区,他们好多的确能力很强,在美国混的很好,出了一些非常出名的科学家和科技创业家。那个人,他反而觉得那些人都不算一个真正群体,他说的原因我记不清了,群体还算吧,他们也有自己的identity(身份认同),只不过在我眼中不是什么好的,而是本质上受制于人的identity。

我在美国的时候还试了为徐创建一个百度百科页,可是老是通不过,最后放弃了,当时对他还很有好感,现在呢,就呵呵了。。。

Revisiting quotes of ChinaSuperpower after some time in China

I’ve been busy busy busy quite exhausted but weekend gives me a chance to wind down a bit. So I went over the VPN to read again some quotes of ChinaSuperpower on Reddit.

I’m from a technical background but unlike many especially from the Chinese diaspora STEM community in US, I’m not exactly entirely apolitical and I do not try to pretend that national and racial boundaries can be traversed unlike many an idiotic Western or Westernized liberal. Segregation per race is natural for humans and miscegenation, hybrid vigor notwithstanding, I see as for the most part quite corrosive if not socially and culturally destructive. As the Chinese saying goes, 人以群分物以类聚. I was and still is a quantitative nerd and used to hang out with mostly those types naturally but many of them are just 书呆子 with pretty low political awareness and then again naturally I don’t want to be exposed too much towards that aspect of them. Like, I will respect a high IQ banana for his technical prowess but I will disdain him somewhat socially and treat him with some degree of suspicion.

On the other hand, ChinaSuperpower is a lawyer as he has written on Reddit. He doesn’t care all that much about pure technical ability and puts the political side before the professional side. He doesn’t want to hear more about cases of highly successful Chinese STEM diaspora and he has a very high standard when it comes to ethnic/tribal affiliation. Being a lawyer he’s obviously had to deal with much more cutthroat behavior than people in technical fields. A political big fish in the latter is merely average in the former so the standard is very different.

I’ll say that with direct exposure and experience I can better understand where he’s coming from with his words.

Like he wrote

You are thinking like a diaspora, mate. Race only matters when you have the same citizenship. In Asia, where different ethnicities have different citizenships, the only thing that matters is your citizenship.

So a Chinese national will naturally discriminate against nationals of other countries that are unfriendly to China. A Chinese American will be categorized as “American” and disliked. Now a white American may be disliked as well but a native Chinese will expect the white guy to have some status within America, so he gets respect. They know a Chinese American has no status either so they will dislike the Chinese American for his citizenship and look down on him for his lack of status.

Again, this is the shitty situation created by the huge wave of white worshipping emigration from 1980 to 2015. They exploit their children as “anchors” in the adopted country for the parents’ convenience and then cut off their children’s escape route back to the homeland.

In China, without citizenship there is too much one cannot do. One cannot buy train tickets online and one can only live in hotels for foreigners that are overpriced. China is not an immigrant nation like America, China does not even pretend that non-Chinese can become Chinese, unlike America with its melting pot bullshit. A non Chinese without citizenship can only work on the fringes of mainstream society in foreign-based organizations there. Really it’s similar for Chinese in America even those with US citizenship. They tend to be in academia and tech companies full of immigrants or in Chinese restaurants. They have no place in the media or in the legal sector or in mainstream finance or politics. Their kids are subject to higher standards in college admissions because their career prospects and social influence are limited in America.

On this I shall quote a comment on Reddit.

This is somewhat true. Many are just as blind as they were when they first arrived to the US. Many stay here, buy into the story and never want to acknowledge the problems that exist in the West (US) and how this affects them and their communities.

I think the problem is the clustering of immigrants which gives them a sense of false reality. Back home in Vancouver, the majority of Asians tend to stay within their own communities. These communities live in their own bubble, but are also deeply affected by westernization in all aspects.

They get fooled that they maintain their own social dynamic and that things are good, but essentially the same rot occurs due to the way society works in the West. I have seen Chinese folks talk all proud about being Chinese and doing some superficial Chinese things, but besides these few things, they have become almost fully westernized and they would difficulty move away from this.

The reason why the diversity meme is spread is precisely because it helps spread westernization among the immigrant population. They want Asians, but they want a specific type of Asians to be represented. They want people that LOOK Asian and do some superficially Asian things, but they essentially want these people to behave in the exact same way and have the exact same political/social positions as the mainstream whites.

Given it is a slow process, most people don’t realize it. It is like the frog in the boiling water.

To this ChinaSuperpower responded with

Your post hit the nail on the head. Never underestimate the resolve and solidarity of the mainstream society in excluding Asians from real corridors of power. Instead, they cleverly peddle a superficial Asian (or Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Filipino, etc.) community to numb the first generation emigrants into thinking they are in control.

Actually, the first generation emigrants are in control of nothing. The government remains in control of the mainstream. The police remains in control of the mainstream. The banks and big businesses remain in control of the mainstream. The unions remain in control of the mainstream. The media remain in control of the mainstream.

But you let the first generation emigrants gather together in some Asian mega church or whatever and they feel as if they are “at home.” The moment they realize they are not at home is when they change from consumers to producers.

When they have to actually make a living they realize there are no jobs. When they try to open a business their property rights are not protected. When they wonder what is going on by then it is too late: their sons have wasted years and years getting an education without real job prospects. Their daughters have spent years and years watching white savior Hollywood movies.

If these Asian enclaves never formed and all these Asian families were scattered in redneck hick towns maybe they would have figured things out much faster and retreated back to the homeland. The Asian enclaves serve to paralyze the first generation emigrants while the Western toxin works its way into the bodies of the second generation sons and daughters to change their lives forever for the worse.

I having grown up there and worked there am aware of all this. I much disliked it obviously and did what I could to keep that toxin out of my system. Nonetheless I still feel at times a little PTSD from that experience. But once well settled in China what happens in America will largely be irrelevant to me; I will have basically little reason to care. I hardly even go on English media now and as an example I never even cared to read any English media articles on the recent Huawei detainment incident aside from the one on Unz Review by Unz himself. Unz Review is out of the mainstream though. There are many Russians on there and I encourage them as hard as it may be to go home instead of being an unwelcome contrarian in America. Social position and belonging means much more than the extra money and material standard of living you’re getting in America.

Even a guy with top credentials with even stronger anti Western liberalism views than I do superficially speaking I laugh at at times to myself as merely a “Chinese nationalist wannabe banana” as his Chinese is very limited and he basically acts American in terms of many of his natural habits. I do think he can be redeemable though but with a lot of work. I encourage second generation Chinese in America with a desire to become a true Chinese to contact me and I’ll do what I can to help. At the very least I can supply some connections on 微信. It’s a very small base population though so you are probably used to your social and psychological needs not really being catered to growing up. Having gone through that experience I definitely will help in my spare time. I am aware that those who grew up in America by default would regard returning as basically not an option and I am happily challenging that default with my own writings and more importantly actual actions. I encourage more Chinese to actively challenge existing norms in ways advantageous to both the individual and the group whenever one is capable of doing so.

My blog does not get that much readership (certainly less than Steve Hsu’s) but it’s also far from negligible. People have contacted me and I have become good friends with at least one. I’m glad to have influenced some people. Those who like my blog are of course very welcome to share it. In the reverse direction, I’ll say that my contacting a Chinese in China blogger I stumbled upon through Baidu search helped me with my return to China which while not that difficult due to my relatively privileged circumstances was not exactly easy either. At the very least it brought me some connections and made me feel less alone. So maybe I can do the same for others.

I want to say to my readers that though this blog might in many ways reek of elitism, there’s no reason to feel intimidated or embarrassed. I’m actually a pretty chill person for the most part. I don’t think I am all that great either. I want my blog to provide some valuable information and encouragement to my readers and hopefully meet some interesting and helpful people through it as well. I want to write honestly too, about how the world really works socially based on my personal experience in school and in the real world, across both the Chinese and American cultures. I’ll be honest to say that in that regard I do have quite a rare combination, though that has more to do with my rather unusual background than with any terribly exceptional ability or talent, though certainly, I’m also far from a dimwit.

At the same time, I want to write more clearly and simply about my experience learning various technical topics in math and computer science and provide some suggestions on how to go about understanding them, though surely, the audience for that is smaller than for the political matters I write about. I don’t think it’s very good to try to make this stuff seem super difficult and perhaps more complex than it needs to be. I realize that many expositions present just the formality and don’t say anything about the motivation or intuition, with the appropriate analogies or context.

It’s also not my intention to show off or name drop or status signal. I have been guilty of doing that before, just as I’ve been guilty of intellectual intimidation, and all that I find increasingly tasteless. I must say that Steve Hsu’s is full of that, and it threw me off quite a bit when I first encountered it (when I was about to graduate from high school I believe). He hasn’t really changed. Not that he isn’t extremely talented and impressive, but every once in a while, he will write about how hard theoretical physics is, his contacts/connections with theoretical physicists and also mathematicians (recently Noam Elkies), and alongside that random blog posts about his sporting prowess, and also geopolitics (mostly in the form of links to videos) and then advertise these random Chinese (to clarify, mostly Chinese-Americans, not real Chinese) people and Chinese companies, and then go on about how they’re discriminated against in college admissions in a white country (with the whole controlling for all other variables, being Asian means less likely to be admitted argument that most people don’t really want to listen to). Also, his cognitive genomics and AI and Silicon Valley startup experience among other things. It’s mostly in the form of advertisement, often with links and just brief commentary, with at times some elitism in the form of name dropping and personal associations. Clearly, our formats differ greatly, with my posts being longer and in more essay format, with some actual elaborations on my thoughts and reflections coupled with some personal experiences.

I’m getting a bit tired of Steve Hsu’s blog by the way, but I certainly acknowledge the impact it’s had. It’s a pretty successful blog with many commenters, unlike mine, which has very few comments. This I’m sure also at least subconsciously has to do with the fact that I don’t really consider Steve Hsu a real Chinese, especially now that I am in China; he’s not at all culturally Chinese as far as I can tell. So as much as he advocates for China and Chinese, especially in America, it’s hard to take him that seriously in this different context. Of course, this is all a product of his having been born and raised in America. I was raised in America since first grade too, but I have more actual exposure and connection to the real China and real Chinese such that I still can be one of them.

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。

原链接:https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/8BUWdQYJ1sSsc2wf0TjLLg

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!

占豪 了不起我的国 Yesterday
文|  炎之物

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。

04

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。

中国本地人如何看待美国长大的华人

ArmorUSA老是跟我说我在中国由于我在美国长大会受到一些歧视和排斥,比我想象的会严重得多。但是,他个人还是有经历的,在北京工作过。有人知乎上私信给我,表示对我的支持,我就向ArmorUSA说

我可以跟他说你觉得ABC在中国很不受欢迎吗,即使是会中文的,爱国的,【某美国最顶尖大学】有高等学位的。

他的回应却是

The last point is irrelevant. What matters is 会中文 and 爱国的.

我心想,哇,真的,中国人把红竟然看得那么重啊,比专还重的那么多啊。

ChinaSuperpower倒觉得我在中国不会被排斥,由于我还有中国身份证,加上父亲一直在中国,并且来自比较红的家庭背景。

这种不管你在美国多么有资历,多么名校背景,若是黄皮肤华裔而中文不好或不爱国,中国人不把你当回事儿这一点,其实我也有过,尽管自己当时还没真正想到回国发展。比如,大学毕业后认识了一位普林斯顿毕业的四岁去美国的人,本来以为他专业能力会多么不得了,但却大大失望。加上这个人的中文极差并还觉得自己中文已经足够好了,对世界和政治的思维方式也是完全美国化的,一下子我就觉得这个人是个tm的sb。

同段时间,有一次我又和一位我小时候通过父母朋友认识的一个当时在读医学院的人网上聊天。记得小时候觉得他牛的不得了,被哈弗,耶鲁,斯坦福大学录取了,又是SAT满分,那些中国父母都觉得他棒的不得了。当然,后来我也SAT接近满分,数学和编程竞赛也得过奖,也工作挣钱了,就没有把他那么当神看了。我们谈起了某五岁从乌克兰来到美国的人,我说这个人还知道好多中国历史人物,比如吴三桂,钱学森等,让我感到相当的impressed。那个人却说了中国历史他只知道近代的。然后,我就说了个那钱学森你应该知道。他说不。我就简单的介绍了钱学森是什么人及他的人生和贡献,然后说了个什么像钱学森邓稼先都是中国核武器和导弹最重要的并且在中国公众名气比较他的科学家,应该知道。他还为此感到很惹恼,在那平台上禁了我几周。我怎么觉得呢,一开始感到有点失望,是不是自己与人交往能力有点问题了。同时,我也觉得他这个人虽然事业上好,但是比较缺乏政治判断能力。美国学医的人在很多人眼中都是一些不太聪明不太独立思考但能死拼命的人,为了进美国医学院付出很大的代价,包括大学和医学院昂贵学费的贷款债,好将来做医生相当高的工资慢慢换回来,之后在自己晚年享受高的工资并且稳定工作。有的人进不了医学院或者医学院读了却发现自己做不下去,此经济压力甚大,每年都有医学院学生自杀。我个人从来没有对当医生有过兴趣,同时,我也觉得扛着那么多债为了将来不完全保证的更好的未来不是一个明智的选择,就像一些中国父母在美国为了自己的孩子能上学费高的好学校,还把自己的房子卖掉,这在我眼中也是很愚蠢的做法。同样也是那些为了能进好的大学故意显得不那么Asian,据我观察他们或许能进哈弗耶鲁等,但是之后他们的结果一般并不好。

所以看来我自己虽然在美国长大也一直骨子里从某种角度把香蕉化的华裔非人化,跟中国的中国人做得也差不多。我骨子里还跟那些主动移民美国的人是不一样的,不过还是由于母亲的决定小时候去了美国。ChinaSuperpower说我这样的人即使没有香蕉化也不会太被同情,这我能理解,这就像一个人主动跳进了蛇坑后受害了才认识到蛇危险,逃避了还指望正常的觉醒的人同情他,在这种情况下一般人的反应会是活该。当然,ChinaSuperpower说第二代身不由己去的好多其实是无辜的,可惜的是,某程度依父母什么样,包括父母的人生决定,评价一个人属于人的本性,若自己与父母道不同,那就得积极的证明此不同才能得以别人的认可。

结识ArmorUSA和ChinaSuperpower

他们俩都是七岁去的美国或加拿大但名校高等学位谋取后回到了祖国,他们也都认为中国人在美国面临着集中营的未来。他们俩我也都是在Reddit得知,在知乎上读过我的文章的人可以看到我的文章好多以他们的Reddit评论为启发点。我一个月前在Reddit上写给了他们俩私信,几天前得以ChinaSuperpower的回复。微信连通后,他立即把我加到了一些以我们这类人的组成的微信群,在此及微信私下聊天已经说了不少了,尤其是与ChinaSuperpower。 

有些关注我的博客或知乎的人应该得知我对犹太人比较反感。我已发觉好多红的中国人都是这样的,包括ChinaSuperpower。他又说现在在美国掌握着媒体的大多征服了白人的犹太人在操纵着白人歧视亚洲人,这也很符合我的观察。我在我博客上也写到过我的在数学竞赛获得过最高奖的白人朋友也觉得犹太人是可恶的寄生虫,而且他们因为在美国的种族分类属于白人,可以把所谓的white privilege推到白人身上。在美国舆论中,任何对犹太人负面的话在那种多年被犹太人操纵的政治气候会被批为anti-Semitism,而且经常,犹太利益集团会为此破坏其言者的事业。从某种角度,中国人还好,因为中国人只要有中国身份还可以回到中国,在中国主流是不会在乎反犹的,甚至可以说共产党本质上就是反犹的。中美敌对,美国由犹太人主导寄生,犹太人自然是中国人的敌人。犹太人掌握的媒体如谷歌和脸书好多都在中国的黑名单上。我在脸书面试过,那儿有好多大陆人,但是都是干活的或中层管理的,上层大部分是犹太人。中国人不要怕犹太人,犹太人其实没有那么聪明,中国人在美国完全客观公平的考试和数学竞赛等今年基本在秒杀犹太人,在科学研究上,中国人也不错,总的来讲还是差一些,但是因为现在在还未形成世界绝对一流的独立的科研体制,在美国还是经常依赖于他人的钱和评价,中国人将来也会达到日本那样的绝对一流的水平。同时,中国人14亿,拥有庞大的而接近于最先进独立工业体系和军队,犹太人如果太得罪中国人,他们十多亿的穆斯林仇人不得不加以实力远远更强大的中国人,若不妥协,犹太大屠杀必定重演!

我和ChinaSuperpower说了一些自己的背景。小时候把我带到美国我母亲的一些表示自由主义观点之语录我跟他说了,他的感觉是我母亲不仅是精神美国人,而是不一般的,严重的精神美国人,为什么呢,因为原来她是原体制内的人,在中国主流体制混的算很不错的。他非常佩服我一直留在中国的父亲,觉得他是非常有智慧的人,我却跟他说了我爸爸在我中学时候对我说的,大概为

中国人跑到美国去,人家自然就会觉得你是跑到他们那儿享受更好的物质条件,是在那儿乘凉的,你在好,人家也不会真正瞧得起你的,所以我从来没想过去美国。

他又说,现在的局势已很危险了,中国人必须选一边,中美矛盾只会加深,在过一段时间很可能就来不及了。当然,好多第一代移民已经失去了回国的可能,因为好多他们的作为,尤其已经入美国籍的那些,已经使得他们在中国人眼中为叛徒。 

他认为犹太人是美国的华人的集体敌人,但是个人敌人对于那些生在或小时候去的美国的经常是他们的叛国父母,中国人不光要集体冲击美国的犹太精英当权派,个人也要去彻底否定及惩罚背叛国家的父母。

这句话或许有点极端,但是从此我还看出了一定的引申义。那就是中国人最大的敌人其实是内奸。他也在Reddit写到过90年代和00年代初,中国的政治气候处于了低谷,右派内奸漫天遍野,并且占领了不少有权利有影响力的位置,那时候西方国际化公司即使在中国比中国公司威望都要高。对中华民族幸运的是,习近平上台时,其形势已基本转变,中国的左派已大多占领上风,而且其相对势力一直在增强,按趋势会彻底压倒卖国的中国自由主义右派。这一点我在美国也感觉到了,2017年是个大的转折点,觉得那时候中国已经大多证明自己了,被嘲笑为超美国的科技公司在美国媒体里也得以认可,连美国的时代杂志都发表了一个标题为China won(中国赢了)的文章。我自己个人也有了不少进步,在事业上,在能力上,给了我远远更强的信心。我感到中国人之前实力还是太低,不得不服从美国的一些,但是现在不这么认为了,开始认为其实中国人或许更强,只不过近代史起点太低了,若世界体系能由中国人主导,中国人的天分和能力能得以远远更充分的发挥,也会将世界变得更好。今年受到一些网民如Unz Review的Duke of Qin的影响,我认为中国人应当发愤图强将美国的自由主义国际体系彻底毁灭,保卫中国人,也保卫全世界得多元化。中国的优势在于大家都是中国人,都讲中文,有同样的文化,有极强的组织和执行能力,只要政治上团结一心,力量是超大而无可比拟的。中国改革开放融入国际体系以来,一直有外势力利用中国自由主义分子搞渗透,如听说微博都有以色列支持一些中国人发亲以亲犹的言论。犹太人千年活在别人的国家,对他民族做商业,政治,及文化渗透和操纵和寄生成了他们的本性,他们认识到他们在多种族自由主义社会有极大的优势,反而那种世界非常不利于千年活在只有中国人的中国的中国人。

中国人在二十一世纪,要像在当年的朝鲜战争一样,积极选择并形成最自己更有利的战场,那就是慢慢通过自己的势力改变美国为主的国际体系和规则,将自己的劣势转为自己的优势。要想做到这一点,显得清除内奸,最好的办法是施加压力迫使他们离开,就像ChinaSuperpower所说,我反对中国的“公知精英”,但是他们一旦离开了中国,就跟我们没关系了。分界线现在已经画的很明确了。美国的华人一旦主动放弃了中国籍或长期在国外与反华的机构形成利益关系,就不在是中国人了,在国外他们的任何遭遇责任完全由自己担当。同时,ChinaSuperpower同情第二代身不由己在美国长大的华裔,因为他们好多是好的,觉得中国应该给他们提供融入的机会,至少给他们机会证明自己与他们的叛徒父母很不一样。不过他也认识到那些第二加代美国华人他们大多也没希望了,要回来就赶紧回来并且做一切自己所能做的证明自己对中国的忠诚,这包括公开否定自己的叛国父母。

这个世界差异大的种族和文化是没有本质上的妥协或融合,人必须选完全依靠一边,不然得不到支持而难以生存,现在我们处于危险的历史时刻,面临着你死我活的斗争!

为什么我认为盎格鲁锡安集团有对东亚人和东欧人进行种族清洗的别有用心

当然,我又受了一点那个ChinaSuperpower之评论的影响,尤其是

I was born in Taiwan in a WSR family and grew up in the West. Growing up, I finally realized that whites intend to do genocide on East Asians and KMT are collaborators in that agenda. Including my own parents — they are traitors and collaborators too.

After finishing my last degree, due to total disgust with the West and my traitor family, I reverse emigrated and worked in mainland China. It’s been 10 years now. The agenda to do genocide against East Asians (starting with Chinese) is very much alive. KMT is a part of the agenda. DPP is part of the agenda. The only people fighting against the agenda are the leftist CPP! Not even the pro-reform rightist faction of CPP. They are a part of the problem.

For us, the leader against Western imperialism is Chairman Mao!

Today, we have Chairman Xi, who is doing a pretty good job too. The struggle is real and it is literally a life-or-death struggle for the East Asian race versus the Anglo race. To defend ourselves, we are willing to nuke anybody who gets in our way!

此翻译成中文为

我出生在台湾外省人家庭而在西方长大。长大的过程中,我终于意识到白人意图对东亚人进行种族灭绝而且国民党是合作与此。包括我自己的父母,他们也是叛徒及合作者。

读完学位以后,出于对西方和我叛变家庭的彻底厌恶,我返移民了,并且在中国大陆工作了。十年已过。 对东亚人(从中国人开始)进行种族灭绝的意图依然活活存在。国民党属于它。民进党也属于它。与此斗争的唯有中国共产党左翼!连中国共产党的改革右派都不算,他们是问题的一部分。

对我们,反西方帝国主义的领导是毛主席!

今天,我们有习主席,他也做的挺好。斗争是真实的,是原原本本东亚民族与盎格鲁民族你死我活的斗争。为了保卫自己,我们愿意核杀任何阻挡我们的人!

不用说,他说的有点情绪化,但是方向完全正确。为什么会这样?首先,盎格鲁民族骨子里就是自我优越主义占领他人土地清洗他人妄想称霸世界的民族,锡安主义者一样,是盎格鲁民族自然的盟友,而且盎格鲁世界好多一直被锡安主义控制了。针对东亚人和东欧人是因为这些是最有实力阻止盎格鲁锡安霸权世界的两大异类民族。说起异类,盎格鲁人不把东欧人当做纯粹的白人看,很多因为他们曾被蒙古人和鞑靼人征服过而留下一些所谓东方人的血统,也有一定的文化差异。东欧人是不西不东的,虽然好多特别想成为西方人,但是西方主流看来并不完全接受他们。

沙皇时代我不太清楚,反正俄罗斯帝国与西方列强也是不友好竞争对手,但是很明显看到从苏联建国以来,盎格鲁世界对其敌视入骨,试图各种方式导致其崩溃。一旦机会来了,美国为主得盎格鲁世界利用俄罗斯如戈尔巴乔夫和叶利钦的内奸将俄罗斯一点不留情的瓦解和毁坏。下面是我为苏联解体后俄罗斯的人口数据。


我们可以看到1992年到2006十五年的时间段,一直每年死亡率在1.5%左右,而每年出生率仅1.0%左右,那就是每年失去0.5%。而直到2013年出生数才与死亡数平衡,加起来死亡的比出生的多了1300余万,接近1992年人口的10%。当然,也可以看到实际人口减少的是少其一半多的500多万,那也只能说明前苏联其他地方被西方搞得比俄罗斯还差,好多人不得不跑的俄罗斯去。

盎格鲁媒体整天宣传斯大林时代死了多少人,最高的估计好像是来自于亚历山大·伊萨耶维奇·索尔仁尼琴的6000万,当时苏联也就2亿人,那还得了啊。比较靠谱的估计,就是大清洗在残酷也不可能超过100万人,你知道判死刑那么多人是什么概念吗?那代苏联人的确死的很多,但大多出于与纳粹德国的战争,应该归咎于希特勒而非斯大林。苏联和纳粹德国那场战争是人类最大规模的,最毁灭性的战争,苏联失去了他的人口的百分之十以上,德国也死了好几百万兵。从上人口数据来看,可以说苏联解体后盲目采纳西方那套对俄罗斯的毁灭程度经过二十年时间都接近了第二世界大战对整个苏联的毁灭程度。从某种角度更可怕的是,西方对俄罗斯与二战不一样,这次进行了一种慢杀,如以色列对待巴勒斯坦人一样,使得危机永久性而难以得以恢复。虽然俄罗斯现在有好转了,但是已大伤元气。而这次与二战很不一样的是,俄罗斯没有得到任何大战争的胜利及来自于此的国际地位和影响力,而却白白牺牲了那么多人的生命。

同样,盎格鲁媒体也天天宣传毛泽东为大杀人犯,甚至用genocide(种族清洗)这个词形容。的确中国那三年人口有了负增长,但是总的来看,中国从1949的大约4.75亿长到了1976年的9.30亿,接近翻倍了,这还能叫“种族清洗”?这还是忽略了当时美国的经济封锁大大阻碍了中国人民的生活条件的进步的背景。

面对着像斯大林和毛泽东那样的伟大领袖所代领带领的敌对大国,他们不得不无所不用其极的在经济科技封锁的同时支持政治渗透和分裂活动,最终对苏联成功了,可是对中国没有成功,不过中国在苏联解体后对自己体质的自信也面临了低谷。从目前美俄之间的更加对峙形势,盎格鲁锡安对待东欧的不彻底征服而不休的姿态明摆眼前。他们有把俄罗斯毁而分裂至不可挽救的地步的愿望和行动。对待中国,姿态也是一致的,此具体例子实在太多,感争议此的中国人肯定是汉奸,是美国对中国政治渗透及分裂所利用的工具,在中国整掉这些人将是一场你死我活的,决定民族兴亡的残酷政治斗争。

归根结底,中国现在的政治问题源于百年的落后挨打。大英帝国打进中国大门之后又支持了腐朽的满清政府对太平天国的镇压,加深了阻止中国现代化的情形。辛亥革命之后,盎格鲁世界为主得西方列强也支持了中国的军阀混战。北伐之后,它又鼓励支持了蒋介石国民党背叛民族的转向,直到共产党打下了江山才赢得真正的民族独立和主权,后又以朝鲜战争大大巩固和证实。这毫无疑问也是盎格鲁锡安对中国人恨之入骨的根源,因为中国人民选择了为民族赢得独立和尊严的共产党而没有选给他们做傀儡的国民党。

在还不到七十年的时间,中国从一穷二白的农业国成为了按某指标经济第一的,具备独立基本工业体系的世界强国,而它依然还快速发展,走进着科技的世界前沿,走向着与西方文明的全面较量。同时,中国和俄罗斯重建了密切的联系与合作,面对着咄咄逼人,杀人如麻的西方帝国主义。在这种情况下,为了保卫自己的世界地位盎格鲁锡安集团会不得不做出一切他们所能对中国人为主的东亚人和俄罗斯人为主的东欧人进行种族和文化清洗。

如何对待此现状?我的经验告诉我与帝国主义者和汉奸争论是浪费精力的,而最重要的是巩固自己,排除内奸。一定要积极学习对自己有利的外来的先进的知识和技能,但学习它必须是为了提升自己的水平,根本还是为了自己的利益,而不是为了崇洋媚外或者跟外人混在一起。据我的经验,大部分美国人和犹太人的政治立场是与中国的直接矛盾,其渗透和干扰势力必得警惕。同时,帝国主义也有它们的弱点,要抓住一切机会用自己的优点对付敌人的弱点,要学会脱离盎格鲁锡安集团为自己利益而制定的国际标准,如当年毛主席说的,你打你的,我打我的。

How East Asian males in America can attain more status and power

I read through some comments of wokeAZN on Reddit and I actually created a page where I began to collect his quotes. Of course, what he says many already know, but few will actually say, for obvious reasons. I think that yes, East Asian males really need to confront the reality and change certain flawed attitudes, and this is most easily done if the realities however unpleasant are laid bare before us.

Let me briefly list some of main points, far from inclusive.

  • the American system set up for the interest of privileged whites
  • Asian women making Asian men look like losers by marrying white men who give them a white voice on Asians via their media power
  • the bamboo ceiling set up by whites to guard against highly intelligent, hardworking, and high achieving Asians
  • big, dominant, assertive Asian men auto-triggering fragile white men on a regular basis
  • physical inferiority of Asian males
  • highly competent Asians ending up mostly working for white owners
  • Asian parents training their kids to be passive hard workers for the white man who don’t complain or fight for themselves
  • Asians not working out enough
  • The Anglo world’s having pretty much conquered the East

All this is really quite obvious to me, but maybe it isn’t to a lot of people. There is also that Asian-Americans cannot win under the current system, and how much because of that the powerful Chinese in America are mostly from China.

So naturally, if Asians in America want to go beyond where they are right now, they should try to develop more connections with powerful people from their home countries. That means they should seek out Chinese VCs with connections to important people in Chinese companies.

Here, I’ll use Asian to mean East Asian. Indians will be excluded, because they are kind of white the dark skin notwithstanding by virtue of both their appearance, their culture, and their mannerisms, as well as the bamboo ceiling not really applying to them as much. Also noteworthy is that India has already been fully conquered by the Anglo world. In some sense, they’ve already lost, whereas East Asians still have hope of creating an independent entity competitive with what the West, whites have.

I’ll start with some essential historical context. First that the Japanese shattered much of the perception of inherent white, Western supremacy. It started with the Russo-Japanese War. (By the way, Russians were conquered by the Mongols in the 13rd century, so they’re not fully white. Still, Russians are pretty white, even if the Anglo-Saxons hardly identify with them.) Then, there was how during WWII, the Japanese defeated without much difficulty the British in Hong Kong and Singapore and demonstrated their ability against America too. Even though Japan eventually lost, it was much due to their small size along with their overextension. Clearly, they were extremely formidable in a combination of their technology and fighting prowess.

Back then, it was only the Japanese who could be considered honorary whites in this sense. The Chinese were extremely backwards and weak and suffered much from Japan for this reason, and the Koreans were colonized by Japan for over 30 years. There was obviously a penalty against Japan by the white, Western powers who were too proud to treat Japan as an equal. After Japan defeated China militarily in 1895, the Western powers only felt more entitled to extract more out of China, the indignity of which culminated in the Boxer Rebellion.

To everybody’s great surprise, China stood up not long after the Japanese invaders surrendered and left. Remember how on the declaration of founding of the People’s Republic of China on October 1st 1949, Mao Zedong in front of Tiananmen Square said, “the Chinese people have stood up.” People in China who view history honestly will sort of laugh at it. Chinese back then were incompetent weaklings, so one Chinese army evicting another doesn’t really prove much. It was during the Korean War when China really stood up. It managed to do what the Japanese couldn’t, which was to defeat white, Western countries in a war. Of course, the Chinese fought using relatively primitive means, with minimal use of air force, but even so, they kicked the US led UN Army out of North Korea and maintained that position for almost 3 years, eventually pressuring the US to sign an armistice acknowledging its inability to defeat the Chinese army. I heard somewhere that after that, the Japanese would no longer refer to Chinese using the derogatory 支那.

Because of that, China could not trade with the United States and found it very difficult to trade with other Western countries. Until, China developed nuclear missiles among other things, finally forcing America to give up again.

Among ethnic Chinese who dislike the PRC, some of whom will say 反共不反华 (anti-communist but not anti-Chinese), from the historical context, they are best perceived as Chinese who are anti-Chinese in a half-closeted way. They will point to all the failures under Mao and the poverty in mainland China relative to the other East Asian countries under American patronage, but the reality is evidently that it was the Chinese communists who won the highest international position and power among Asians. Moreover, they did so in a very sustainable way, unlike Japan, which took it too far and eventually lost, losing all hope of becoming a world military power under the post WWII arrangement. Of course, Japan did scare America a bit with its cars and electronics. Their science and Nobel Prizes too, except that can’t change its status as an American, white vassal state. I guess once China becomes powerful enough, Japan may dump America and shift towards China, but that’s still a fair ways away.

So Asians indignant about the status of the group in America and internationally can best advance it by supporting China. Swallow the pride and sense of superiority inculcated under colonialism, it’s pathetic. The fact that America can get Chinese in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and in the West to feel superior to and even utterly contemptuous their counterparts in mainland China is a sign of their surrender and lack of self-confidence. If you support America, you’ll be mostly viewed by white American elites as a useful tool to keep down their most threatening competitor. On the other hand, if you support China enough, China will eventually treat you as one of their own.

There are already very few Chinese in America rising to a position of power by virtue of the bamboo ceiling. Even if you do, you are there as a minority, and so you have much less power than a white guy in the same official position. You defeat a system by boycotting it not by hard struggle within its rigged game.

The American media and culture loves to degrade the self-confidence and self-respect of Asian men. Well, you can do what you can to ignore it. Instead, immerse yourself in some Chinese communist culture and promote it to your other Asian friends as well. For sure, that’s much better for a masculine Asian identity than what America has to offer. Learn the Chinese language well enough and develop some connections in and from China for a chance of making some career there. For as long as you’re stuck in America, do what you need to do to make a living that doesn’t harm the group interest much and outside that, maybe try to connect with some other like minded Asians to start an independent enterprise. You can also try to influence the American media, culture, and politics to your favor, and maybe try to gain more stakes in power institutions such as Hollywood too. Don’t expect too much there though, as America is a country run by whites with a white majority. In any case, if Asians as a group want to win under the current system in America, they’ll almost certainly have to gang up with money and power from China. Remember that unless you immigrated after age 18, you ended up here not by choice. So you have every right to choose not to identify with America as part of a politically marginalized minority group too different to truly assimilate. You need not let the American media and education cage your mind, and you don’t have to give a damn about what the white majority thinks as long as you can get by. Instead, feel lucky to be of the same blood as a rising superpower who you and your posterity can truly be part of and do all you can to take advantage of and contribute to it in return.

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.

 

What’s wrong with the Ivy League

Very recently, a Chinese-American Yale undergrad cold emailed me expressing approval of this blog, and we not long after began to talk regularly.

A few days ago, in an email to Steve Hsu, me, and some others, he wrote:

I think the Ivy League is best understood as a giant money-making organism. Attached to it like a leech is a seminary for training priests and spreading the gospel of the American progressive religion. Attached to that leech is an even smaller leech which actually contains smart people doing good technical work. And gmachine1729 is right that the average Ivy student is not that great (but the top end does represent the best of the best).

Relatedly, I just saw an essay on Zhihu in Chinese by Yale finance professor Zhiwu Chen on the matter of 中国人那么优秀,为什么美国人还是更喜欢印度人?(Chinese are so exceptional, why do Americans still like Indians more). The essay was one of Chinese are smart and hardworking but modest, passive, conformist, filially pious per the Confucian tradition and emphasize hard skills at the expense of soft skills, while Indians, like Americans, are assertive and confident with strong leadership qualities. The comments, of which there were 27, were mostly dismissive. The first one, and the most memorable one was

你对比下毛主席和甘地还不能明白点?

In translation,

Can’t you better understand the situation by comparing Chairman Mao with Gandhi?

I’m very happy to see this. It means that Chinese are no longer dazed by Ivy League credentials. They are beginning to think more independently, to have more confidence in themselves. Maybe in another decade’s time, non-STEM professor at Ivy will become an explicit negative signal among Chinese in China.

I stumbled upon the reddit by the handle wokeAZN. Guessing from his handle, he advises Asian-Americans on how to fight for equal rights. One of his main points, which I’ve long realized and written about on this blog, is that in the current system, privileged whites have no incentive to not preserve their privilege, which necessarily means depriving Asian-Americans. A representative comment on that would be

Correct. Asian-American activism as of today is entirely focused on begging the predominantly white owners to change their ways without even considering to challenge or disrupt the ruling mechanisms to begin with. Their weapons of choice are politeness, copying SJW concepts that worked for other marginalized groups and political correctness. Good luck with that.

Look at the recent Harvard and specialized NYC HS admissions controversy for example. Asians loudly speak up in droves protesting the process changes yet none of them even thought about the need to challenge and dismantle the administrations and institutions that are in charge of the admissions processes. Same goes for any activism directed towards Hollywood and the Western media etc.

This was in response to the quote:

“Nobody in the world, nobody in history, has ever gotten their freedom by appealing to the moral sense of the people who were oppressing them.”- Assata Shakur.

This is nothing but obvious to me. Reminds me of how in essence, Gandhi’s nonviolent resistance signals nothing but weakness. India’s nominal independence didn’t really liberate India. She remained at her core still a British colony. I recall how Chinese Marxist philosopher Ai Siqi (艾思奇) wrote of Gandhi’s nonviolent resistance with disdain, a fact I had commented on before in Chinese. The Chinese communists on the other hand actually won a war against America in Korea, the reason they are so despised in the West. So yes, if Chinese-Americans want equal rights in America, they should go unambiguously more in the direction of the Chinese communists. It’s not about morality; it’s about leverage. I heartily hope that Asian-Americans can stop exhibiting a form of Stockholm syndrome manifested in the form of defensiveness and attachment towards a system that treats them as second-class citizens.

I’ve written the following:

You can probably tell that I want Chinese to obtain more position of power internationally. It would make a better world. By default Chinese have less sense of entitlement which also hinders their rise to the top. I used to blindly revere the top STEM people. Now I realize that not only should you be strong technically but you should also have the political awareness of what your technical strength is going into. Who is reaping the fruits of your labor. A guy I know told me he got promoted, with the help of someone higher up, after he sort of went on strike and only then did management realize how much he was needed. See this is leverage. There are a lot of eager earnest people churning out a ton of value for the company without demanding more and executives love that. Their existence lowers the leverage of the value creators. I’m thinking of what could possibly give Chinese-Americans more leverage. Little, as they’re for the most part unwelcome in positions of power in the US. Again many Chinese have false hopes of meritocracy. Yes, it’s meritocratic up to a certain point, but in terms of actual political power it’s far from it. The Chinese who do get promoted in the media and politically by the mainstream American establishment tend to be those who are against collective Chinese interests. Why do you think the successful Chinese entrepreneurs in America have a hardware focus. Because those require real expertise with high barrier to entry.

The struggle for socioeconomic position of Chinese-Americans I expect to be largely futile. It’s already very saturated at this point. Way more technically smart and well-trained Chinese than the system can tolerate. There are some rich Chinese who hit it big with entrepreneurship but they generally have far less political power than a white guy with the same net worth due to relative lack of elite networks. Those rich Chinese from China in the states have little actual power; all they can really do is make a dent on the real estate market, and fund some pro-Chinese activities there, though with that, there will only be increasing scrutiny. If Chinese are to gain massively, it would have to be based from what comes out of China. Basically become like the Jews. Develop a reputation of fuck with us too much and there will be consequences. To do so, China would have to play the extortion game very aggressively too. What leverage does China have now? For one, large market. This is why airlines have to accept demands to list Taiwan as part of China; if they don’t they lose a ton of business. What else? Potentially encourage the Chinese with hard to acquire expertise in critical STEM fields to stop working for American companies, go to China instead. Take it to the very extreme, if China/Chinese want to be truly feared on the international stage, they can once they’re adequately prepared to guarantee victory encourage North Korea to invade again as Stalin did in 1950 with a serious pledge to back them up, use anti-ship/anti-aircraft missiles to prevent Americans in Seoul from escaping, then America will negotiate with China to save members of their own political elite. China could demand complete withdrawal of US forces from the Korean Peninsula as a condition. Now, anti-ship/anti-aircraft missiles would make it not that hard to enforce blockades near one’s borders; the era of American military dominance by air is over. China is already in the process of deploying the state of the art S-400 it got from Russia to cover most of Taiwan and has already deployed its own, less advanced but still formidable, air defense system on the South China Sea islands, enough to render US fighter jets practically useless in the region.

How do you get an edge over a competitor? You can by improving yourself, making your product more competitive, that’s the good way. Like it or not, you can often do equally or more by directly sabotaging the competitor in a way you can get away with. The success of Microsoft, and many big businesses, had arguably much more to do with the latter. In the case of geopolitical influence, militarily evicting the enemy is necessary. It doesn’t have to turn violent, and ideally, it shouldn’t; all one needs is enough military power for the other side to give in on the negotiating table.

As an example of China’s exercising leverage, did you know that in the 50s, after the Korean War, the US would not let Chinese with STEM PhDs return? After a few years of negotiation, the Chinese government exchanged American POWs for the freedom of those Chinese with hard-to-obtain and strategically important STEM expertise to return to their home country, where they would make a decisive contribution to the success that China is today. China/Chinese, if they really want to get ahead, need to do similarly. Their struggle in America is a losing game. Yes, there are ways to succeed massively yourself, but more often than not the tradeoff is generating much more value/money/success for others, which could even count as an anti-success given the relative nature of success.

For Chinese, it’s okay if you piss off some elite Americans. You can always go back to China and find something reasonable there. China is not what it was twenty years ago. Plus, if you’re anti the American establishment, the Chinese government will likely support you. With Indians, it might be different, since India still is shit place. And Indians have for the most part already given up. Indians cannot even create their own Internet companies.

Speaking of which, I am trying out some Chinese internet products, and while there is still room for improvement, they seem to have created a reliable alternative. Weiyun (微云) for cloud storage, and integrated with WeChat. Foxmail.com for Email. Both products of Tencent. There is also that Opera Browser, which originated from Norway, was acquired by Chinese company Qihoo 360, and it is faster and uses less memory than Chrome. Comes with ad-block and VPN by default too. I’m definitely sticking to that.

I’ll conclude with another comment of wokeAZN:

Good. Let them be afraid. TBH I live and eat because I’m taking wealth that previously belonged to whites every day probably. Not that I dispossess whites or whoever else on purpose, I just work and buy land, stock and assets here legally. So? What do you want me to do? Apologize and return my land and assets? Lol lol

Asians, keep acquiring your land and wealth while you’re here. if you dispossess whites unintentionally don’t feel bad about it.

He’s 100% correct. If Asian-Americans want equal rights, they should try to take as much from this country while contributing as little as they can in return. That’s the logical response towards discrimination. Either use this country solely to advance yourself and your group to the extent that you can, or don’t come here in the first place. There are even some Asians who bash their own for not contributing enough to the community, which is ridiculous. Seriously, have some sense of entitlement. It’s not really your community anyway. Yes, those rich Chinese who buy real estate here basically contribute nothing. If fact, they make lives harder for the middle-class by driving up housing prices. Well too bad.
