周末过得还相当充实,做了些翻译和业余的编程

周五晚上,我想到可以把Ron Unz在他的媒体网站Unz Review上发表的关于孟晚舟事件的文章翻译成中文。所以周六就那么做了。少部分不太好翻译的地方我就漏掉了。结果是

Averting World Conflict with China
避免与中国的全球冲突
The PRC Should Retaliate by Targeting Sheldon Adelson’s Chinese Casinos
中华人民共和国应当以针对谢尔登·阿德尔森的中国赌场回击
RON UNZ • DECEMBER 13, 2018

As most readers know, I’m not a casual political blogger and I prefer producing lengthy research articles rather than chasing the headlines of current events. But there are exceptions to every rule, and the looming danger of a direct worldwide clash with China is one of them.

如大多读者所知,我不是一个一般的政治博主,我更倾向于创造较长的研究性文章而非追随时事中的标题。不过每一个规律都有意外,与中国直接全球化冲突的风险也是其中之一。

Consider the arrest last week of Meng Wanzhou, the CFO of Huawei, the world’s largest telecom equipment manufacturer. While flying from Hong Kong to Mexico, Ms. Meng was changing planes in the Vancouver International Airport airport when she was suddenly detained by the Canadian government on an August US warrant. Although now released on $10 million bail, she still faces extradition to a New York City courtroom, where she could receive up to thirty years in federal prison for allegedly having conspired in 2010 to violate America’s unilateral economic trade sanctions against Iran.

考虑上周华为首席财务官孟晚舟的拘捕。在香港飞往墨西哥的过程中,孟女士在温哥华国际机场转机时突然被加拿大政府凭八月的美国拘捕证而扣留。虽然已以一千万美金的保释金而释放,她依然面临被引渡到纽约的法庭,在那里,她有可能为据说10年违反美国单边对伊朗经济制裁被判长到三十年的联邦监狱。

Although our mainstream media outlets have certainly covered this important story, including front page articles in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, I doubt most American readers fully recognize the extraordinary gravity of this international incident and its potential for altering the course of world history. As one scholar noted, no event since America’s deliberate 1999 bombing of China’s embassy in Belgrade, which killed several Chinese diplomats, has so outraged both the Chinese government and its population. Columbia’s Jeffrey Sachs correctly described it as “almost a US declaration of war on China’s business community.”

虽然美国的主流媒体绝对报道了这个重要的发生,包括纽约时报和华尔街时报的头版,我不觉得大部分美国读者完全意识到该国际事件的重要性以及其改变世界历史道路的潜力。如一位学者指出,自美国1999年对中国南斯拉夫大使馆的导致好几位中国外交人员死亡的有意轰炸,没有任何事件引起过中国政府和人民同样的愤怒。哥伦比亚大学的杰佛瑞·萨克斯正确的称之为“接近于美国对中国商业圈的宣战”。

Such a reaction is hardly surprising. With annual revenue of $100 billion, Huawei ranks as the world’s largest and most advanced telecommunications equipment manufacturer as well as China’s most internationally successful and prestigious company. Ms. Meng is not only a longtime top executive there, but also the daughter of the company’s founder, Ren Zhengfei, whose enormous entrepreneurial success has established him as a Chinese national hero.

这中反应一点不出乎预料。有千亿的年营业额,华为是世界最大的,最先进的通讯设备供应商及中国国际上最成功最有威望的公司。孟女士不仅是在那儿资深的高管,也是该公司创始人任正非中国国家英雄的女儿。

Her seizure on obscure American sanction violation charges while changing planes in a Canadian airport almost amounts to a kidnapping. One journalist asked how Americans would react if China had seized Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook for violating Chinese law…especially if Sandberg were also the daughter of Steve Jobs.

她的在加拿大转机时根据不明确的美国制裁违反的公诉的拘捕接近于一个绑架。一位记者问了美国人如果中国为了违反中国法律拘捕了雪梨·桑德伯格会如何反应,尤其假设桑德伯格又是乔布斯的女儿。

Since the end of the Cold War, the American government has become increasingly delusional, regarding itself as the Supreme World Hegemon. As a result, local American courts have begun enforcing gigantic financial penalties against foreign countries and their leading corporations, and I suspect that the rest of the world is tiring of this misbehavior. Perhaps such actions can still be taken against the subservient vassal states of Europe, but by most objective measures, the size of China’s real economy surpassed that of the US several years ago and is now substantially larger, while also still having a far higher rate of growth. Our totally dishonest mainstream media regularly obscures this reality, but it remains true nonetheless.

冷战结束以来,美国政府在变得更加妄想,将自己当为世界霸主。结果是美国本地的法庭已开始实施针对其他国家以及其主要公司巨大的罚款,我认为世界对这种不当做法已耐烦透了。或许这种行为可被施加在欧洲的服从诸侯国,可是据大多客观指标,中国经济的规模好几年前就已超过了美国的而现在已经大很多了,同时也有远远更高的增长率。美国的完全不真实的主流媒体通常掩盖该事实,但它依然是事实。

Since a natural reaction to international hostage-taking is retaliatory international hostage-taking, the newspapers have reported that top American executives have decided to forego visits to China until the crisis is resolved. These days, General Motors sells more cars in China than in the US, and China is also the manufacturing source of nearly all our iPhones, but Tim Cook, Mary Barra, and their higher-ranking subordinates are unlikely to visit that country in the immediate future, nor would the top executives of Google, Facebook, Goldman Sachs, and the leading Hollywood studios be willing to risk indefinite imprisonment.

因为对于国际逮捕的自然反应是报复性的国际逮捕,报纸已报道美国顶尖高管已决定放弃了对中国的访问,直到该危机被解决。今天,通用汽车在中国卖的车比在美国还多,并且中国也是我们几乎所有的苹果手机的生产源,不过提姆·库克,玛丽·巴拉,以及其他们的高层下属在近期未来访问中国的可能性很小,同样,谷歌,脸书,高盛和顶级好莱坞影片厂也不会愿意冒险无期徒刑。

Canada had arrested Ms. Meng on American orders, and this morning’s newspapers reported that a former Canadian diplomat had suddenly been detained in China, presumably as a small bargaining-chip to encourage Ms. Meng’s release. But I very much doubt such measures will have much effect. Once we forgo traditional international practices and adopt the Law of the Jungle, it becomes very important to recognize the true lines of power and control, and Canada is merely acting as an American political puppet in this matter. Would threatening the puppet rather than the puppet-master be likely to have much effect?

加拿大已服美国命令拘捕了孟女士,而且今天早晨的报纸报道一位原加拿大外交家已突然被中国扣留,为了赢得小的鼓励加拿大释放孟女士的一张牌。不过我一点都不觉得这种措施会起多大的效应。一旦美国放弃传统的国际标准并引用“丛林法则”,关键就在于识别真正权利和控制的渠道,并且加拿大不过在该事务上为美国政治傀儡。威胁傀儡而非傀儡的主人会有多大的效果么?

Similarly, nearly all of America’s leading technology executives are already quite hostile to the Trump Administration, and even if it were possible, seizing one of them would hardly be likely to sway our political leadership. To a lesser extent, the same thing is true about the overwhelming majority of America’s top corporate leaders. They are not the individuals who call the shots in the current White House.

同样,接近所有美国顶级技术高管已对特朗普行政部门比较反感,即使可能,逮捕他们之一也难以影响美国的政治领导。以更小的程度而言,大多数美国公司的领导也是一样的。他们不是那些在当日的白宫具有决定权的人。

Indeed, is President Trump himself anything more than a higher-level puppet in this very dangerous affair? World peace and American national security interests are being sacrificed in order to harshly enforce the Israel Lobby’s international sanctions campaign against Iran, and we should hardly be surprised that the National Security Adviser John Bolton, one of America’s most extreme pro-Israel zealots, had personally given the green light to the arrest. Meanwhile, there are credible reports that Trump himself remained entirely unaware of these plans, and Ms. Meng was seized on the same day that he was personally meeting on trade issues with Chinese President Xi. Some have even suggested that the incident was a deliberate slap in Trump’s face.

在该时间中,特朗普总统高于一个高层傀儡么?为了强硬实施以色列游说集团对伊朗的国际制裁,在牺牲着世界和平以及美国国家安全,我们对美国国家安全顾问约翰·博尔顿,美国最激进的亲以色列人之一,批准了该拘捕的消息应当一点不惊奇。同时,有不少可靠的报告称特朗普自己都完全不晓得这些计划,并且孟女士被拘捕是在特朗普和中国习总统亲自为贸易问题会见的同一天。有人都说该事件是对特朗普故意进行的打击。

But Bolton’s apparent involvement underscores the central role of his longtime patron, multi-billionaire casino-magnate Sheldon Adelson, whose enormous financial influence within Republican political circles has been overwhelmingly focused on pro-Israel policy and hostility towards Iran, Israel’s regional rival.

不过博尔顿的参与却强调了他多年的资助人亿万富翁赌场巨头谢尔登·阿德尔森的中心作用,该人在美国共和党政治圈的极大金融影响力一直大多针对亲以色列政策并对伊朗的敌视。

Although it is far from clear whether the very elderly Adelson played any direct personal role in Ms. Meng’s arrest, he surely must be viewed as the central figure in fostering the political climate that produced the current situation. Perhaps he should not be described as the ultimate puppet-master behind our current clash with China, but any such political puppet-masters who do exist are certainly operating at his immediate beck and call. In very literal terms, I suspect that if Adelson placed a single phone call to the White House, the Trump Administration would order Canada to release Ms. Meng that same day.

虽然高领的阿德尔森是否对孟女士的拘捕有个人直接影响不明确,他绝对可以被视为产生创造当日情况的政治气候的中心人。或许他不能被描述为当今美国与中国当今冲突的绝对傀儡主,不过任何存在的政治傀儡主觉得在他的即使指令下操作。非常直译的形容,我怀疑如果阿德尔森给白宫打了一个电话,特朗普行政部将命令加拿大同一天释放孟女士。

Adelson’s fortune of $33 billion ranks him as the 15th wealthiest man in America, and the bulk of his fortune is based on his ownership of extremely lucrative gambling casinos in Macau, China. In effect, the Chinese government currently has its hands around the financial windpipe of the man ultimately responsible for Ms. Meng’s arrest and whose pro-Israel minions largely control American foreign policy. I very much doubt that they are fully aware of this enormous, untapped source of political leverage.

阿德尔森330亿的身价将他排位美国第十五最有钱的人,而且他的资产大多源于他在中国澳门非常赚钱的赌场的所有权。可以说,现在中国政府已掌握着始终决定了孟女士的拘捕并且其亲以色列下手大多控制着美国的外交的人的金融气管。

Over the years, Adelson’s Chinese Macau casinos have been involved in all sorts of political bribery scandals, and I suspect it would be very easy for the Chinese government to find reasonable grounds for immediately shutting them down, at least on a temporary basis, with such an action having almost no negative repercussions to Chinese society or the bulk of the Chinese population. How could the international community possibly complain about the Chinese government shutting down some of their own local gambling casinos with a long public record of official bribery and other criminal activity? At worst, other gambling casino magnates would become reluctant to invest future sums in establishing additional Chinese casinos, hardly a desperate threat to President Xi’s anti-corruption government.

这些年来,阿德尔森的中国澳门赌场涉嫌到了各种各样的政治贿赂丑闻,我怀疑中国政府能很容易找到理由立即至少临时的关闭他们,该措施对中国社会和大多中国人几乎不会有任何负面影响。国际舆论何可抱怨中国政府关闭一些它们自己本地具有多记录的官僚贿赂及其他非法活动的赌场?最差,其他赌场富豪会不愿意将未来的钱投资到成立新的中国赌场,对习的反腐政府一点都没有威胁。

I don’t have a background in finance and I haven’t bothered trying to guess the precise impact of a temporary shutdown of Adelson’s Chinese casinos, but it wouldn’t surprise me if the resulting drop in the stock price of Las Vegas Sands Corp would reduce Adelson’s personal net worth were by $5-10 billion within 24 hours, surely enough to get his immediate personal attention. Meanwhile, threats of a permanent shutdown, perhaps extending to Chinese-influenced Singapore, might lead to the near-total destruction of Adelson’s personal fortune, and similar measures could also be applied as well to the casinos of all the other fanatically pro-Israel American billionaires, who dominate the remainder of gambling in Chinese Macau.

我们有一个金融背景,也没顾得上猜测阿德尔森的中国赌场的临时关闭将产生的具体影响,不过非出乎我预料的是他的公司的股价的猛跌能在二十四小时之内把将他的身价降50到100亿美金,绝对足以引起他本人立即的注意。同时,永久关闭的威胁,或许延续到中国影响的新加坡,有可能导致阿德尔森资产接近彻底的毁灭,而且类似措施可以被实施到所有其他狂热亲以色列的美国亿万富翁,那些人占有着中国澳门其他的赌场。

The chain of political puppets responsible for Ms. Meng’s sudden detention is certainly a complex and murky one. But the Chinese government already possesses the absolute power of financial life-or-death over Sheldon Adelson, the man located at the very top of that chain. If the Chinese leadership recognizes that power and takes effective steps, Ms. Meng will immediately be put on a plane back home, carrying the deepest sort of international political apology. And future attacks against Huawei, ZTE, and other Chinese technology companies would not be repeated.

决定孟女士的突然扣留的政治傀儡链绝对是即复杂又隐蔽。不过中国政府已经对该链首位谢尔登·阿德尔森的经济死活具有绝对把握。如果中国领导层认识到这一点并执行有效措施,孟晚舟将能够立即回家,并带来最深厚的一种国际政治抱歉。而且,未来对华为中兴以及其他中国技术公司的攻击不会重演。

China actually holds a Royal Flush in this international political poker game. The only question is whether they will recognize the value of their hand. I hope they do for the sake of America and the entire world.

中国其实具有该国际政治扑克游戏的童话大顺。问题就是他们会不会意识到他们的牌价。我希望他们能,为了美国,为了全世界。

然后,周六晚上,本来想周日出去转转,但后来发觉到我可以将我发布的Chrome管理标签页(tabs)的扩展程序国际化下支持中文,尤其得知现在已经有中国的人用了。所以,周日就这么做了,新的支持中文的版本可以在https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tab-organizer/mbmmpilinpiapfcmknmjgikgoeicadka下载。当然,那是谷歌的子域名,被墙了,谁若知道没有被墙的下载并安装Chrome扩展程序的地方,欢迎跟我说一下。所预料,发布这个还必得登录谷歌,专门有个这方面的谷歌开发员账号。在该过程中,我又在我的github上加了我的腾讯邮箱,但是github竟然不支持,我想是不是因为github 15年据说起源于中国的分布式拒绝服务(DDoS)事件啊。我也想中国有没有一个github的克隆啊,意思就是github的功能基本包含,但基本只有中国人,完全被中国人控制。

我还想说,墙我现在主要是需要的时候才翻。谷歌脸书我都基本不用了,也不需要用了,除非比如通过谷歌账号给Chrome社区和中文国际化做点小贡献这种非常情况。美国英文媒体除了Unz Review和Steve Hsu的博客我是不怎么看了。其实在中国这种英文的那些精神污染被墙掉的环境中生活这种舒服我还真能非常有意识的感受到。中国在这一点做的很好,既不给美国公司白送那么多信息,数据和广告钱,又能好好建设自己的互联网生态,这一点俄罗斯都没有做到,比如俄罗斯我还没看到有个如爱奇艺或优酷这样的大视频网站,Yandex搜索苏联歌曲都在YouTube上。

关于那扩展程序的国际化(internationalization -> i18n),是这样的,如果你的操作系统语言是非中文(zh),那会默认显示英文,要想让它显示中文,必须把操作系统的语言设置改一下,我自己就是这么测试的。可预料,中英文文字都放在一些配制文件里,然后会根据系统的语言设置读取该显示的文字。

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.

 

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!

My whole experience with the American school system

I accidentally stuffed my face last night and found myself too uncomfortable from that to do anything productive, to my great disappointment. So I verged onto non-technical topics again, and in particular, I reflected somewhat on my personal experience growing up as a Chinese immigrant kid in America, and I write this with a hope that it might be inspiring to others with a similar background.

I came in first grade not knowing a word of English, but at least I knew the alphabet. As for learning English, it didn’t help that my first grade ESL teacher was a woman parents from Taiwan who was likely born in the US, who spoke Mandarin. I remember she would tell me that my Chinese was more proper than hers, as she really only learned it in college. Well, as you can guess, because I could speak Chinese to her if needed, I didn’t even know English all that well even after a year. I remember there were kids in that class from a variety of places, from Russia to Japan to Colombia. I wasn’t very well behaved, and near the end of the year, when we were watching some Disney movie, she actually put tape on my mouth.

I had forgotten like all my written Chinese by end of third grade, including how to write my Chinese name. But that summer there, I was able to relearn some of that.

My parents didn’t really give me much pressure academically. I would expect that they were very busy themselves. So throughout grade school, much of my life consisted of playing and watching basketball and baseball, and also stuff like Pokémon, and also piano practice, which I initially disliked but grew to like as became somewhat good at it, by a low standard. My teachers could tell that I was smart, especially at math, but I was quite hyperactive and poorly behaved.

No offense, but where I was, most of the kids and parents I encountered were pretty fucking dumb and ignorant. They seemed content with a chill, mediocre life, the bliss of ignorance. The other kids could sort of tell I was smart, but I was also pretty fucking socially weird. In third, fourth, and sixth grade, the teachers invited me to this “games club,” which I later found was designated for kids identified by the teacher to be deficient in social skills.

I wasn’t in any gifted program. I was actually not even able to test into one, because my verbal IQ was apparently way too low. So I felt like I was inferior compared to kids in gifted programs, but by now, I’ve basically far surpassed basically all of them.

My junior high which was 7th to 9th grade absolutely sucked. The teachers were really fucking stupid. The math was bull shit with graphing calculators, and the history class was full of stupid political indoctrination. I got low grades in 9th grade English and history, one because I was super immature and impulsive, and another because that teacher, who was an idiot far-right (American style) scumbag, absolutely hated me. It certainly affected my self-esteem very negatively. I was problematic in a way yes, but I dare say much was because I had far more latent IQ/talent than the other students that nobody had nurtured in me.

High school was better but still pretty shitty. I was in this IB program much of which was an utter waste of time and was really at quite a joke of a level academically. I had already realized that, doing math contests and such. However, even there, because my foundation was so shitty, I did not progress anywhere as efficiently as I could have. On the other hand, most of those kids in the full IB program thought they were doing so well, because they were in it, and getting good grades, not considering that most got As. The truth is of course that most of those kids, the way they were, had no future in anything serious. Another positive thing to happen for me then was that I started reading various stuff online I found interesting, including in Chinese, on my own. The more I learned, the more I realized how much of a joke the American school system is. It is ridden with the worst type of political indoctrination and scant on actual intellectual substance.

Now, most other advanced countries have an education system where students test into high schools based on their ability. There is much more academic preparation provided at the early stages, and more popularization of serious academic contests like the AMCs. There is also a system of vocational education for those who are less academically inclined, which is great, because practical skills should not be underrated. In contrast, American schools are too concerned with the self-esteem of students to tell them that they are basically garbage, academically, and they are falling short in terms of providing alternatives to prepare them for the real world. The result of course is that their self-esteem will become eventually utterly wrecked in college and the real world where people care more about your actual ability and work and don’t really give a damn about how hard you tried. Of course, now college in America has become a joke too, and so overpriced. On that, Charles Murray is completely right that most students in college right now in America would be better served learning some practical vocational skills as opposed to studying bullshit liberal arts.

I was quite socially clueless in high school, and I was not even that aware of the discrimination against Asians in college admissions. My parents were anything but savvy about the college admissions process in America. Expectedly, high school was full of morons padding their resumes with substance-less stuff just for that. I absolutely hated that, and I cared more about actually learning some serious stuff. That includes math, physics, algorithms, Chinese, history (that was not the brainwash taught in class). Okay, I was a joke at basically all of them but far better than almost all my classmates. There were I think three kids in my year who were accepted to Yale but to me they were the stereotypical superficial well-rounded conformist well-socialized types, and one was an athlete. Another was a very superficial whitewashed Asian who even had a non-Asian surname that I later learned was changed officially when he was a kid. Now I know what he was really up to.

College was much better. It was a flagship state school, and I didn’t mix well with most of the kids there, who I again felt were mostly drones and tools, but there were certainly some really sharp ones, and a few who I had genuine chemistry with. I did of course waste some time on general ed courses. On the more positive end, I could in that environment learn more serious math and science, and also engineering. Because I majored in math and computer science though, I would say that there was very little natural science or real engineering. Moreover, I could meet people from all over the place, including graduate students who had attended elite schools for undergrad, and also talk with international students from China there. The latter partially motivated to improve my Chinese further, to the point that reading it online felt basically as natural as reading English. From that, I also learned more about Chinese culture and the Chinese education system. I felt I was finally seriously shedding away the tremendous damage the American education system had imparted on me, the more socially acceptable it became to detach from that crowd. Though it was much better than high school, I was still not terribly content with the curriculum or the people around me. I felt I was learning too little actual math and especially science, as virtually zero of the latter was required for computer science majors. The computer science majors thought they were really good because they were in this supposedly very competitive program, bound to get six figure jobs in industry, and they were fine at programming, but really, their level of IQ, on average, was quite low. They absolutely sucked at math and had no concept of how to prove anything. There were of course exceptions who mostly kept to themselves. Like this kid who wrote his own compiler for a subset of Java in Haskell early sophomore year, which he taught himself. At programming, I was pretty garbage, lacking the engineering sense at that time, but I was not bad at algorithms, given my math ability. Overall, I am rather disappointed with my college experience. Because my starting point was so low, and because many of the students were dull but studious and conforming enough (to get better grades than I did), I became easily content and cocky at times, and also frustrated. I can blame both my lack of ability and maturity and also lack of fit of the whole educational experience to a guy like me. I sort of kept some distance from most of the other students. Again, many were tools, who I had little desire to be around. Of course, they will excel in the typical tech job, but that’s another matter. In fact, they may well have life much more easy than I do.

Summer after junior year was a major turning point for me. Through a superconnector of high achieving students many if not most at elite places like MIT and Harvard, I met and began chatting online with a few people at Caltech, MIT, and the likes. I expected them to be brilliant or at least solid academically but reality was disappointing, though almost certainly, they were below average ones at those places. However, there was one guy from a top Canadian school and another from a more mediocre state school who were both freakishly smart and competent. I looked up to both of them greatly. I was inspired by a few of them to enter competitive programming, with one of them’s being an IOI medalist, and with some practice on TopCoder, I managed to lead a team the following year to place in the top 10 in ACM regionals.

Something else that happened was that I sort of discovered Marxist literature online, partially inspired by my genius Russian friend, who was also quite a misfit, very defiant of the whole American cultural and political value system. Ironically, he’s actually doing his PhD now at a place famous for American blue-bloods, and he does not express a high opinion in general of the undergrads there, many who are not actually talented but are from well-off families who know how to game the whole system. Given my heritage, Marxist literature necessarily means learning more about the whole culture and tradition created by the Chinese communists, which I found quite fascinating and inspiring. Of course, I also learned some Russian stuff. As I did, I felt ever more indignant with respect to all the historical and political lies promulgated and normalized in American society by the media, lauded as a free one, but in reality, controlled largely by what one can crudely characterize as destroyers of civilization. In the process, I fell in love with Soviet music, which is of much higher artistic quality and substance than the trash kids listen to nowadays. It even idealistically inspired me to fight for a better world. Of course, now I know how hard that is, but I am not giving up just yet.

In college, there was of course pressure to conform, to act in a socially acceptable way, to not be too strange. That means not being openly elitist and critical the way I am right now. That also means not acting in a way that is too un-American. I’m a guy who came here in first grade, not an international student from China. In some sense, it’s not right for me to not be like all those ABCs. It kind of sucks to grow up as an Asian immigrant kid in America. It sucks even more if you’re actually nerdy/smart and culturally/politically sane, like I am. You feel like there is something wrong with you, but of course, now I am confident that that is not true, and that it is in fact American society/culture that is becoming ever more fucked up. Michael O Church can attest to this.

Now, after college. I got to meet some way more interesting, smart people, learn way more interesting things. I could fully distance myself from the uninspiring people I went to school with. This includes people from all over the world, across all age groups, with much deeper and more varied expertise. That includes IMO and IOI medalists, top finishers on the Putnam contest, people in top or good grad schools, some of whom are really impressive, and some of whom are nowhere near the level that they may look on paper superficially. My cultural, historical, political, and linguistic knowledge went up quite another level. Of course, I also saw more first hand from working how the world actually works, which really only parents will tell you. On this, Michael O Church loves to say how it’s the moderately privileged kids whose parents are in mostly meritocratic places like medicine and academia who can be sheltered enough to be naive. In contrast, underprivileged kids need to be street smart just to survive, while genuinely privileged kids know how rigged the system is and how to game it. I felt so much more free because I finally found more like-minded people with whom I could talk openly without fear of how I might be perceived. I was able to in the process re-mould myself into the organic me as opposed to the me under the yoke of a specific educational system.

Finally, I shall speak specifically on growing up Asian in the American education system. Overall, it’s a pretty shitty cultural experience. They’re not really American, no matter how hard they try, yet they lose the ability to be a genuine Asian. Fortunately, I shielded myself from that largely on my own initiative. It wasn’t always easy, but in the long run, that was quite a wise choice, and I encourage more people with same background as me to do the same. Learn from the good aspects of America, not from the toxic ones. Do this with any culture, any system. Also, exposure to genuine Chinese culture can shield you from the pseudo one presented by the American media that has done so much to confuse the thinking and damage the self-esteem of people like me, but not like me.

Reflecting on my experience, I really wished that I could have gotten a much better education. American education really is pretty shitty, especially for actually smart people, if you’re not very well situated in terms of schools and parents. Of course, later on, it gets much better.

I’ll conclude by going on a tangent. That is, my *anti-Semitism* that kicked off recently. What started it? And I also ask myself: am I simply taking out bitterness with my own educational and cultural experience, and also my own failures, on another group, instead of taking responsibility for them myself? Yes and no. Anyhow, I consider it not anti-Semitic, more like realistic, and in fact, I have interacted substantially with and highly regard many from that group. It is without doubt a remarkably high achieving group, often spectacularly so. This math PhD also well-versed in physics I talk to was also saying to me recently how Jewish accomplishment in mathematics and physics is absolutely overwhelming, which is indisputable. Of course, there’s also a darker side. I think I might have been inspired by this really smart guy who is a white Gentile (later atheist) American who doesn’t actually think I’m insane, or at least I hope not. Because once he was like:

You know what you should do? Become one of those food workers where rich Jews eat. Nobody cares about those people.

I actually told this to someone else, who was like: “that’s because they run things. If you ran things, you’d be the same.” When I told that guy about that, he was like:

counterpoint: other people have run things
some corruption is expected
Even the worst of the colonialist era was tempered
a lot of people were actually trying to do good
civilize the savages, that whole thing
that’s not saying there weren’t atrocities
because there were

And I was like, wow

So you’re saying the Jews now are worse
Than whites during the whole age of white/European imperialism/colonialism.
How much do whites regret letting Jews seize the positions of power

Him:

yes
norms have become nicer
so they can’t pull the old school shit
and more importantly
you’re not going to see the megadeaths from plague

Me:

So your argument is roughly that the calibration has to be much different now relative to the colonialist era, and Jews, by the current calibration, are pretty shitty.
About as shitty as the Belgians were in the Congo eh?

Him:

the belgians self-corrected
I mean, after killing a whole bunch of people
somebody said it was pretty fucked up
and the whole thing kinda fell apart
if we didn’t live in a post-colonial culture
they’d genuinely believe
that goyim are as cattle
and that they should do whatever it takes to ensure their rule persists
also the jews don’t want to exterminate
they need goyim to rule over
a world run by whites is one where half want to conquer and half want to help
a world run by chinese or japanese is one where they’d be rich and on top but mostly leave other people alone
other than getting money from them
a world run by jews is one where they’d systematically extinguish any hope of ending it
ITT anyone smart who’s not a jew would be a threat

Me (critically):

But plenty of smart Asians/whites have had Jewish advisors who strongly supported them
Recognized and cultivated their talent

Him:

this is a world with Jews who can openly be in power
not slink about in the shadows

Me:

That’s kind of theoretically impossible because Jews are too few
See because of that, they can only engage in deception
They’re evolved for that

Him:

look at Israel
they might be “evolved for deception” as you say
but that’s not stopping them from carrying out an effective, slow-motion genocide
which alone is scary
because sure, you can have one Hitler
you can have one Stalin
but you have multiple generations of Jews who are determined to exterminate the palestinians
you can’t have that kind of value alignment with white ppl

Me:

Do it slowly so that people don’t react to it as much, until it’s too late.
It’s like starving a person to death instead of blowing his brains out.
That’s what the Jews are doing to the Palestinians, it’s obvious

Him:

you should be scared because it suggest they’d do it to you too

Me:

Yeah they just don’t have the power to
I mean isn’t cultural assimilation also a form of more benign genocide of a culture
Didn’t whites also slow kill the Native Americans?
And got away with it 100%.
There’s also the saying that abused people are more likely to become abusers.
Doesn’t that sort of apply to the Jews too?

Him:

given the choice between future people who share my genes but an alien culture and future people who share my culture but alien genes I’m 100% for the former 0% for the latter
kicked out of 109 countries?

Me:

They regard that as abuse.
Anti-Semitism.
They may even feel nobody likes us because we’re too good.

Him:

I’m sure they tell themselves something like that

“boo hoo everyone’s evil and oppressive except for us”

What can I say? A smart white who sounds way more *anti-Semitic* than I am. Should I recalibrate according to him? Are Asians simply not aggressive enough? Is that why they are picked on so much by the media in America and not allowed in upper management in corporate America? I think he may be a bit overboard, but I might be wrong on that one. Or maybe he is exaggerating. Who knows. Anyhow, I find it somewhat flattering that he says he’d rather live in a world ruled by Asians than one ruled by Jews, because: less evil. So, considering his opinion, in combination with how shitty the American education system is, outlined above, maybe the group that I am part of really should try to take a more active role in world affairs and set a new standard and example. Lately, that has already been happening, very noticeably, and only time will tell how it pans out. Maybe I can be part of it too, who knows?

Israel, China, and more

I figured that as interested in Jews and Jewish achievement (and shenanigans) as I am, I should at least learn something real about Israel, which I know little about at the detailed factual level. That part of the world has, predictably, always felt rather remote in my life, though it is in some sense the cradle of civilization. While on the bus with nothing to do, I was just last week, trolling some of my friends on Facebook with some Hebrew I copy pasted. Like, ברוך השם (Baruch HaShem), which literally means “blessed his name.” On that I’m pleased to say that I’m now sort of paying attention to the letters of the Hebrew alphabet when I visit English Wiki pages on Jewish matters with the English transliteration of Hebrew words alongside the Hebrew original. It’s kind of cute that it, like Arabic, reads right to left, a fact I had not known.

Last night, I had the pleasure of going through the history of Israel (particularly its formation) in some degree of detail. So now I know what Haganah, Irgun, Lehi, Palmach are. Interestingly, there was tension between the IDF (headed by Ben-Gurion) and the Irgun (headed by Menachim Begin), which resulted in the Altalena Affair in which a ship containing armaments of the Irgun was ordered to be sunk by Ben-Gurion on high seas by the air force. I was rather surprised there was actually this much discord among the Zionist leaders, as stereotype is of course that Jews are super cohesive. I was also somewhat surprised that the Zionists had the nerve to assassinate Western politicians like Lord Moyne and Folke Bernadotte they did not like who were mediating truces between the Israelis and the Arabs during the 1948 war. Overall, my impression of the war was that neither side had substantial military experience or ability and the war was on a relatively small scale, being in a very small region.

I was not fully aware that American support for Israel really only became substantial following the Six Day War. Around that time, France, which had provided Israel with high end military technology before, had announced an embargo there. Israel’s nuclear weapons was provided to it largely by France as well, and some say that at the time of Six Day War, Israel already had a functional nuke to use as a last resort. Almost certainly, it did in the Yom Kippur War seven years later. Details regarding Israel’s secret nuclear weapons program were revealed to the public via Mordechai Vanunu, who had worked as a technician on classified projects at the Negev Nuclear Research Center, who was eventually caught and shamed for life by Mossad agents.

From this reading, I can better appreciate Israel’s vulnerability due to its small size, in land and in population, the latter especially, that makes it impossible to sustain itself without external aid. This will hold regardless of how advanced it becomes, so even with nuclear ICBMs, they still have much to fear. I’ve seen pro-Jewish sites characterize Israel’s military and survival as a miracle. I’ve also seen that Israel is scared shit of North Korea, which could potentially transfer its nuclear and missile technology to Iran, Syria, etc. Israel’s attitude is of course that the Arab nations cannot obtain nukes at all costs, and Israel will send Mossad agents to assassinate anyone suspected to be assisting them on that, which it has already done many times.

Readers of my blog might know that I write here about that Jew in math I talk with quite a bit, who has some interesting views for sure. As an update there, I didn’t quite expect him to say to me that “Israel surviving is not that impressive.” I would somewhat agree actually given how much support Israel has gotten from the West, which does not apply at all to North Korea, whose survival I would say is much more of a miracle. Only time will tell who will last longer, and I would think that both will remain intact for quite a while.

That guy also tells me that China is very pro-Israel, which I’m not so sure about. China only developed at first secret relations with Israel in the late 70s/early 80s. China at the time was very interested in procuring some high-end Western military tech from Israel, which it did to a significant degree in the 80s, and surely, America is not terribly happy about this. This guy responds with “China” when I ask him how Israel will fare on a weakened America, and I’m not sure how serious he is on that, since I could hardly imagine China actually going to the lengths to rescue Israel under the hypothetical scenario that it is about to be run over.

The aggressive and often overtly biased political attitudes of Jews and Israelis are understandable given how precarious their situation is. They faced life or death and though their situation is much more secure now, they still do, being too small. On this, recalled to me was this physics professor at Washington University of St. Louis whose infamous essay Don’t Become a Scientist I had read and reread, who also has on his web page a collection of political pieces against Iraq and North Korea, with provocative titles such as Anyone Who Bombs Baghdad [when Saddam was in power] Gets My Vote. I haven’t seen yet any mention of Israel and its nukes in his pieces and I sure wonder why. In another one of those, Limiting the Nuclear Club—Iraq, North Korea et al., he characterized Stalin (when it was mostly his USSR that defeated Hitler) very one-sidedly as “a man and system which murdered tens of millions of people with bullets, famine, and prison camps.” On the nuclear club, he also wrote that “fortunately, most of these countries are stable democracies and therefore not aggressors; the two chief exceptions (the Former Soviet Union and China) were successfully contained for many years, and the more powerful of these is making a transition, one hopes successful and irreversible, to democracy,” which again goes to show his blatant bias and lack of rigorous thinking (that he would exhibit in physics) when it comes to politics.

On this, I don’t see why China should be terribly friendly to Jews and Israel when Jews, with their media power and verbal gifts, have done so much to distort modern Chinese history in the West and to smear, sabotage, and peacefully evolve a political system that has worked wonders for China, very plausibly with ulterior motives. I have also seen many Jews support Taiwanese independence, including this guy I talk to. Certain American interests might want to mould the political thinking of Chinese who grow up in America like me (most of whom do not read Chinese), but honestly, I feel like I am too intelligent and politically discerning and realistic to fall for it. I value independent, impartial thinking that is reality grounded, that is cognitively empathetic of interests relations wise, which means the American exceptionalist versions of history and politics don’t work on me, and neither would any such form of exceptionalism in favor of any country or system. I don’t think Chinese who grow up in America will be terribly happy once they realize, as more of them are doing, that the American version of the history and culture of where their parents are from is fraught with glaring inaccuracies and falsehoods motivated by political bias and ill-intent, and elite Jews, who have the most prominent voice in America, can be mostly easily blamed for that. One can even go more extreme and say that the Jews are the main culprit for the shitty and grossly dishonest media in America, with their dominance of press and Hollywood in this country, which they unabashed laud as “free media.” I don’t think this facade can last forever.

Often, one, including myself, is met with the dilemma of whether or not to engage in aggressive and ethically questionable behavior that gives one an advantage, at least in the short term, that goes on record either directly or indirectly in the memories of those alienated by the action as well as oneself.  Even it brings me major gains, I know eventually I might look back and feel shame and regret on the dishonorable means I took to earn them. I like it most when I achieve something based on genuine ability and hard work, as opposed to politicking, striverish behavior, which everyone engages in to some extent. I don’t think lies or deceptive talk can be concealed forever regardless of how much power or media control one has, and in some sense, it is the truth that is the most potent. Additionally, as a Chinese, I am somewhat conscious of how my behavior in every way affects microscopically how Chinese are perceived in general. When I see so many Jews spout nonsense about history and politics, especially parts I am familiar with, it sure doesn’t give me a good view of the group in general, character wise, so as to separate from their objective achievements, especially when that group controls so much of the media where I live, though I am careful to disentangle individuals of the group with the group in general. I do believe that one is to some extent responsible for the actions of one’s group at large. The actions of a nation, of an ethnic group, especially against others, are not just the responsibility of the elites in power who made the decisions but also the ones who allowed those people to come in power. When a nation or people, as a collective, chooses some system or leader or development strategy, they should take some responsibility for the outcomes and “dictatorship” or “democracy” is not an excuse. Fundamentally, what I am describing is actual democracy, as opposed any democratic system by name or by election. If Americans want to elect “democratically” their leaders and their leaders make shitty decisions against their interests and country at large, they should take responsibility for it and blame themselves for choosing such people to elect or blame the election system that is the root of it all. On this, I recall how this guy way smarter than me technically (also of Jewish descent), on my mentioning of a guy I know whose parents were from the USSR whose grandfather could only become a theoretical physics professor in some remote university the name I remember not, was like: “his parents helped destroy the Soviet Union,” followed by that if he, who moved to Israel, were still in Russia, he would be working for MacDonalds, with reference to the economic crisis there in the 90s that was statistically far more murderous and damaging than Stalin’s purges. It was then that occurred to me again that as unpleasant and sad as it may be to accept, Soviets and Russians share collective responsibility for promoting certain wrong people to power in the Soviet era that rendered their nation less competitive and especially for their later letting oligarchs, many of them Jewish, wreck their country irrecoverably, a specific of the generality I had just described. That many of those mega civilization and wealth leechers/destroyers were Jewish tells us more that anti-Semitism is not without reason, and Jews should all take some responsibility for it. Pardon any cultural bias, but this brings to mind a famous quote attributed to Chairman Mao which is “世界上没有无缘无故的爱,也没有无缘无故的恨”,that translates to “the world has no love without reason and no hate without reason,” an obvious reality of human nature that I believe one of high moral character ought to always be cognizant of.
