得知了53年拍的《伟大的土地改革》

非美国网站的链接为https://www.bilibili.com/video/av6742454/

我怎么知道该电影的?因为翻了翻我的中国红歌的页,看到了《唱支山歌给党听》的那首,就记得其作曲家朱践耳比较有名,五十年代还在苏联学了作曲。然后翻了翻朱践耳的百度百科得知《翻身的日子》那首也是他写的,那首歌我怎么得知的?是在美国时在油管上看了殷承宗演奏它的视频。

同时,也得知《翻身的日子》竟然是53年拍的《伟大的土地改革》的插曲,然后该电影看了十多分钟吧。

我对土地改革具体不了解,对农业也是一无所知,反正我知道当时有贫农,中农,富农,地主。当然,地主也分小地主,大地主,没那么坏的地主,和残忍剥削并与蒋匪军和美帝国主义密切合作的地主。我也想到了我的一个大学同学,他就是彻底的香蕉人,也跟我说了他们家恨共产党因为曾经有多少多少钱。他也跟我说他父亲八十年代就去了美国,在一个一般般的学校读了数学博士,那人还特别要面子,还说因为当时美国读研对中国国际生很有限制,所以他父亲只进了一个一般的学校,尽管从中国名校毕业了。那个人啊,的确相当或很聪明,但总的而言给我感觉不好,就是一个一般的老老实实顺从学习的彻底被美国洗脑的香蕉人,在我眼中他的品味也一般,他的长相和整个说话的口气和方式也不给我什么好的感觉,就是如ChinaSuperpower所描述的,又一个几乎被阉割的顺从的好好学习的ABC,没啥想法,没啥眼光,没啥大气,其实这种ABC是美国最欢迎的,如果又知道了他的家庭背景,那只会更为这样。

反正从那个记录片,我能看出控制媒体是什么样的效果,一旦共产党控制了媒体,就能大量宣传这样的内容和立场。相反,美国的被犹太人控制的媒体就呵呵了,感觉真正挑战它,讽刺它的美国长大的华裔,目前我知道的唯一的人就是我自己。你看,那么多华人在美国就知道老老实实埋头苦干,我对一位第一代技术移民提到了犹太问题,他还对此具有容忍的态度。我一抱怨常春藤的总统和上层行政人员一半儿都是犹太人,他却以对此接受的口气说了个,“我觉可能比那个还多吧”。

我也想到如果美国很多是个诱惑,在硅谷当工程师的确能挣至少美国十万多,经常二十万多,甚至五十万多美金的收入,这我也都享受过,还算不错吧,一开始觉得很不错,后来就不觉得怎么样了。负面言来,它也很容易变成一个温水煮青蛙的过程。为了能够升上去,你得从某种角度有一种跪舔白人,印度人和犹太人的态度,然后慢慢,你的心灵被打乱了,你成了美帝国主义合作者了,如果在那儿生了孩子,那有孩子没有国家没有身份永远被美国奴役的危险。钱也只是一方面,还有地位的一面,美国华人虽然挣钱多些,但地位是相当低的。好多华人去了美国,一旦享受到了一些钱的诱惑,就永远没完了,虽然自己已经不缺钱,但成了它的奴隶,为了更多会做一些可被形容为“出卖自己灵魂”的事情,尤其一旦他们试图为他们的孩子在美国赢得好的未来。可以说他们这样是混得很成功,也可以说他们心里软弱,道德沦丧,无法抵挡美国的诱惑。

ChinaSuperpower将第一代大陆移民形容为大多有精神病(mentally ill)或道德有问题(ethically challenged),我之前觉得他这么说过激了,现在却觉得这种说法基本是对的。他特别强调八十年代后,中国已经相当稳定了,那些移民的在中国也算过的不错的,不像之前的一些移民,是逃避战争,饥荒或严重的经济危机,他们是有理由的。他也提到好多第一代移民的家庭在解放前也是城市人,对土地改革或文革依然怀有抱怨态度。我的感觉是这些人他们能力不差,但是就是比较过于自我中心并缺乏眼光。他们在中国已经过的不错了,甚至特别好了,但是还是把自己的个人利益放在国家前面。他们觉得白人更富裕,更好,所以要让他们的孩子接触白人,在白人文化环境长大。他们在美国也不团结,面对白人是跪舔态度,互相之间经常是小人的勾心斗角和攀比。所以说他们是ethically challenged是绝对正确的。他们这样成不了大事,就像当年的地主那样永远是帝国主义的傀儡,他们也建设不了现代化的国家。

Fundraiser for translation to Russian of Grover Furr’s book on Katyn Massacre

Dear friends:

Here, for your own information, is the web page, with which the Tver’
people wish to raise enough money to pay for the translation of my Katyn
book into Russian.

https://planeta.ru/campaigns/furr

Here’s the book. It was published in July, 2018:

The Mystery of the Katyn Massacre. The Evidence, The Solution

http://www.erythrospress.com/store/grover-furr-katyn.html

https://www.amazon.com/dp/0692134255/

In this book I investigate the Katyn massacres in the manner of a
detective who approaches the case with complete objectivity, wishing
only to solve the crime and identify the guilty party.

I would have been content to conclude that the Soviets had shot the
Poles. Instead, I found that ALL the valid evidence points to German guilt!

This conclusion is taboo, of course. When it comes to attacking the
Soviet Union during the period of Joseph Stalin’s leadership, no calumny
is too outrageous.

Vladimir Bobrov, my wonderful Moscow-based colleague and a dedicated
historian, has informed me that he has obtained an oral  promise from a
major Moscow publisher to publish this book, IF they are presented with
the translation.

Please forward this email of mine to any and all Russian friends or
colleagues you may have. Perhaps they would like to contribute? If not,
they may be interested to learn of this project.

Yours for the truth!

Grover Furr

The link is https://planeta.ru/campaigns/furr and there is a Union Jack at the bottom to change language to English. I tried with both American and Chinese credit cards (they were all Visa) but they could not get accept on that Russian e-payment/finance platform. They also supported like Yandex Money and a bunch of other Russian “fin-tech” products, none of which I have and none of which I actually care enough to register for. Looks like Russia might be ahead of America now in mobile/e-payments as well.

I really wanted to donate but haven’t been able to. But readers of this are surely welcome to, with instructions below.

Dear friends:

Some of you have asked me how you can make a contribution to the fund
for translating my Katyn book into Russian.

There are two ways you can do this:

*First way: Using a credit card, on the web page:*

1. Go to this web page:

https://planeta.ru/campaigns/furr/donate

2. Click on the link at the very bottom of this page that says: “Switch
to English version.” There is a small Union Jack (flag of the U.K.)
beside these words.

3. Only the first box, labelled “No reward” and “100 ₽” (the sign for
Russian rubles) is translated. The others remain in Russian. But you can
click on any of them too.

1000 ₽ (Rubles) is about US$15. If you want to contribute, say, 2000
Rubles, you will have to use the 1000 Rubles box twice.

4. Complete your credit card information on the next page.

Voilà – you’re done!

I did it, as a test, and got confirmation from both the crowdfunding
software (planeta.ru) and from Mr. Maxim Kormushkin, who is organizing
the fund.

*Second way: If you do NOT want to use a credit card.*

Send a check to me at the address below. Mark your check “Crowdfund” (so
I’ll know you are not buying one of my books).

I will wait until I get a number of checks, and then make a collective
deposit.

If you contribute more than 2000 Rubles (= about US$30), I will mail you
a copy of my book. In English! IF you ask me for it!

Here is the address to mail me a check:

Grover Furr
English Department
Montclair State University
1 Normal Avenue
Montclair NJ 07043
USA

Russian is the most important language that this book should be
available in. So thank you for all your support!

Sincerely,

Grover Furr

By the way, I don’t really actually care about the Katyn Massacre and I know very little about this controversial matter. I just know that it was murder of some Polish officers (in 1939 I believe) in Katyn. Stalin’s NKVD led by Beria I believe was blamed for that. I believe the Soviets denied it under Gorbachev. Furr’s thesis is that it was actually done by the Nazis, which really is quite plausible.

Why do I like Grover Furr? Well, he seems like a serious honest scholar. He knows Russian well. Not sure Robert Conquest does, and Furr said that most of the references in Robert Conquest’s Black Book of Communism were bogus. Apparently, the book had gotten so much acclaim, and nobody actually really pointed out that the references were kind of fake after actually looking them up. Basically, pure Cold War propaganda. I’d totally believe it. There is some Victims of Communism Memorial in DC where they say there were 100 million victims of communism. It’s China 65 million, USSR 20 million, then Cuba, North Korea, Romania, Vietnam, etc for the remaining 15 million. Like that, is basically bullshit.

Grover Furr also visited at least twice the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in Beijing to give talks on matters pertaining to his work Khrushchev Lied so more reason for me to take him seriously. He even said something like, “Stalin didn’t commit a single crime.” He’s obviously exaggerating there. He blamed the Great Purge on then NKVD head Yezhov, claiming Yezhov was a secret Nazi agent. This stuff it’s really basically impossible to know for sure by now. The people directly involved are all dead, and even they only know for sure a portion of what happened. Something I am well aware of is that Stalin is just one person. He has people under him doing stuff. Like, his cult of personality was manufactured by his underlings managing a bunch of people doing actual the work. It’s difficult to actually be able to fully reign in on those people. Surely, they are afraid, but they have some power too, and many of them might have been secretly opposed to much of Stalin, as Khrushchev almost certainly was.

Russians who read this are welcome to contact me. Maybe one of you can donate on my behalf, I’ll pay you back in US dollars or RMB, or maybe by ordering something for you that you want.

开始读(其实更是看连续剧)红楼梦了

不知为何,想起可以趁着还有时间好好利用读读红楼梦了,我想这对于了解中国更传统的文化会很有帮助的。其实,在美国时,接近两年前的时候,我就试了读红楼梦了,但基本是大失败,实在是太难太长了,而且他的文化背景对我也太陌生了。读过的也基本全忘了,留在脑子里的基本只有很少一点如什么“纨绔膏粱”,“簪缨世族”,跟我们现在生活和语言毫无关系的当时的贵族和文人用的语言。当时的我还对文言文有点兴趣,至少因为我从某种角度在内心里还有傲慢学术精英主义者的一面,觉得如果不知道点文言文,有些中国人会不把我当人看,就如我不把彻底美国化的美国华裔当人看。(注:刚才这话有为了幽默效应而夸张,莫以直译视之,我其实是个相对平易近人的人。)

现在在中国待了半年以上,红楼梦可以再尝试一下。尽然《敌营十八年》四十集的连续剧我都基本全看完了,那五十集的内容文化背景对我远远更陌生的五十集的红楼梦连续剧也是可以慢慢吃的,多久能吃完,难说。若看迷了,可能几个月,甚至就一两个月,也可能痴迷于工作和其他事情,没时间和精力把它放到边上,得两三年。至少现在我可以很欣慰的说我以完成了其百分之二。

我在似懂非懂地看视频的同时,也会在网上读读关于红楼梦的剧情,人物,和相关背景,也创建了在我这网站上一个红楼梦语录页,目前只有来自第一回最开始那部分的语录,这些我都会找到(或理解后自己编也行)其译文,为了我的(和我网站访问者的)学习和未来的参考。我倒是想过找或者买个红楼梦的删节版本读,后来也觉得算了吧,可以看连续剧,也可以读网上关于剧情的内容,归根结底,剧情的概括可不就是个超级删节版么。

网上的原本太长太难则考虑找删节版却把我引到了我爷爷留下的书架。我记得我爷爷特别爱收集东西,尤其是录像,印象非常深刻的是我小时候他家里收集了不少录像,而且内容非常之广,从动画片到纪录片到新闻,其整理分类排序也都做得相当完美,当时九十年代用的还是卡带。

他留下的那书架,其内容让我感到“很有意思”。书前面摆了不少各种各样用石头做的漂亮的东西(不知道这个中文该如何更简洁的形容)做为一种修饰,书很多都是一些跟共产党相关的,至少那些最容易引起注意,也有四大名著,包括红楼梦,只不过那原本红楼梦我网上也能看到。这可能在中国没那么奇怪,但对于在美国长大的我,反应自然会是一种笑。里面包括什么毛选,还有邓小平,周恩来,陈云,等的文集,也有翻译到中文的一些列宁的著作。也堆了不少红色小册子,拿了最上面的看了看,标题却是“中国共产党第九次全国代表大会”,那好像是69年的。

可以说我也以新型的互联网平台做了点类似,我为了自己和别人方便找,也为了troll一下笑一笑,收集了在这上面一些苏联红歌中国红歌的视频,回国后,一旦得知一个新的艺术水平不错的,如白雪唱的《永恒的军礼》,可能也会将其插入到列表里。

有点晚了,就不再写了。红楼梦打算慢慢地看。可以通过它感受一下中国科举封建制度下的贵族文化。

游了游泳

昨天去附近的一个健身房和游泳馆看了看,跟我谈的那个人就说能看出我的身体状态不太好,体型有点变形,尤其肩膀太往前,有点驼背,其实这个问题我早就知道,几年前也有健身教练跟我说过,可以一忙就顾不上这个,只会问题加重,因为我知道我的姿势经常是挺糟糕的。这个跟我做码农有关,但也跟我自己这方面自然就差有关。当然,那人由于想让我在他们那儿花钱,肯定也把问题夸张了。

我上次进游泳池是半年前,也没游太多。我游的也很一般,游的自由泳肯定有姿势技巧不良的地方,蛙泳腿的动作基本肯定也算错的,可是游是绝对没问题的,并游了两个小时,中间的停顿休息也相当少。

我记得五岁时上了游泳课,班里有不到十个人吧,包括一个当时十岁以上的邻居。记得有一个教练把我推进了两米多深的水里,我自己当时看到了深度高于两米,想以此为借口,但依然教练说了个没事儿,然后也确实没事儿。最后一天,有了那儿的所有游泳班级的“展示”或“表演”,我在的当然是最初级的班,然后我所展示的却是勉强并扶了几次墙游到底。我妈妈对我的这些表现当然是相当生气。

在美国上小学三年级,有一位女生过生日请了班里所有人去游泳,记得那次一进水怎么扒拉扒拉都会不得不沉下去,最终不得不戴上救生衣游,感到好尴尬啊。不过,之后那个夏天我却学到了游起来没问题的地步。

记得在美国长大时有个华裔孩子通过我们父母互相之间是朋友认识,他一直搞游泳比赛,小学初中时成绩好像不错。可是他爸长得较矮,低于一米七吧,他也偏矮,我妈觉得他游泳最终很难有啥希望。说的没错。高中时,有一位比我小两年级的华裔也在游泳队,他好像还比出些名堂来,进了什么junior nationals,我问了他我之前熟悉的那个人如何,他却说他算游的比较慢的,这毫无疑问跟他的个子。但那个人依然算比较athletic,之后也练出了不少肌肉。衡量一个人是否athletic其实更多看人的整体身材素质,个子偏矮只会影响某些身体不够大物理上不得不限制竞争力的运动,如游泳,如篮球,如田径的某些项目。这让我想起,普京也很矮,才一米六五,但他毫无疑问是个比较athletic的alpha男,我看过他带领一帮俄罗斯青年人滑雪的视频,也知道他即打过老虎,又驾驶过战斗机。当然,更关键的是他的领导地位与他的形象加姿态的混合。斯大林好像更矮,腿还有点残疾,但他更给人一种alpha男的形象,更令西方白人畏惧。在俄语里,钢铁用英文字母念为stal,所以Stalin恰好被称为“钢铁男人”(человек из стали),与他的形象和作为特别符合。钢铁象征着工业化,而且是在他的领导下,苏联实现了即快速又高含量的工业化。

美国有些人特别爱说什么alpha男,beta男,并亚裔男在他们眼中大多是身材小,nerdy,顺从性的beta男,中国人倒没有什么太类似的,当然也可以说潜意识也有。这让我想到那个徐物理教授在他博客上还会偶尔炫耀他的体育成绩,很可能为了表示自己与典型的美国亚裔beta男恰恰相反。可是alpha还是beta不光是看身材和体育,也看性格和整体形象,也看种族。比如,在美国Jeremy Lin依然被犹太人金钱控制的NBA和媒体所歧视,这跟他是个美国华裔很有关系,因为在美国,在英语文化里,黄种人本质上不可能成为真正的alpha男。相反,姚明和易建联有中国背后的支持。在中国,由于是香蕉人加上台湾背景和公开的基督教信仰,Jeremy Lin也没有那么受欢迎。徐的能力,成就,和对自己的展示能让他在美国有较高的地位,显得相对比较alpha,但他依然受到取决于他的种族的局限。在中国,媒体可以很容易把他打成与美帝国主义合作的买办亡国奴,彻底毁掉他在中国人眼中的形象。所以一个男人alpha还是beta不光看客观能力和个人性格和姿态,很关键是背后的宏观媒体势力所塑造的标准。

所以一个人要当alpha男不一定需要体育好或身材大,更重要的人所在的环境如何看待他,他与环境的关系。简而言之,有能力很重要,但进入配合并支持自己的背景和能力的环境可以说更有决定性。当一个真正的alpha男必须自己非长自然就被人视为alpha,如果需要勉强,如果氛围默认要求你证明自己,那就不是真正的alpha男。而且一个真正的alpha男,若标准高一些,必须具有一种影响并推动主流氛围的角色。如果主导媒体主导文化的人与你本质对立,那你当真正的alpha男是绝对不可能的。一个需要求别人接受的人也绝对不可能当alpha男,最终被接受了本质上还是个beta男。换一个角度考虑,真正的alpha男的alpha作为和气魄牛到他的短板,他的失误被视为无关,甚至被赞扬为使他alpha个性更加神奇的特点。

什么是alpha的,什么是beta的经常是非常主观的。人无论多么理性都有自己的品味,自己的主观看法。可见影响人们的主观感觉的势力是多么具有决定性的。

Propaganda in film, or propaganda films

In English, the word propaganda is obviously rather pejorative. That need not any explanation. Some people might even disparage my blog as “Chinese communist propaganda.” If they do, so be it.

A native Chinese female who I talk with a fair bit now, sometimes about film, asked me if I’ve seen Anna and the King. My answer to that was that I had never even heard of it. I skimmed through the plot on Baidu Baike to get a gist of it.

She seems to know a fair bit about popular culture, and the gossip that goes along with it. Relatedly, she seems to have seen a fair bit of film, including the TV series Gossip Girl. I had watched maybe like the first 10 episodes of that. I was probably more motivated to do so for the attractive girls in it than for the plot, though surely the plot was certainly not bad. I sure got a good taste of “upper class white privilege” from that. I even joked to a math PhD student I was talking with a fair bit at that time, who said he had watched the whole thing, that I need to become filthy rich eventually so that my daughter can become like Blair Waldorf.

I had told her that I watched the historic Nazi anti-Semitic film Jud Süß largely out of curiosity. I think almost certainly, had I revealed that to my typical America raised peer or friend then, I would have been ostracized to some degree. Even many Chinese in America who did up through high school or undergrad in China would have at the very least viewed me funny or with some backlash.

The best I could find of it on YouTube is

with French subtitles. (To someone who really wants to watch it with English subs, then you better find some way to obtain it yourself.)

Out of curiosity, I had also watched, in my last year of college I believe, the North Korean film, The Flower Girl.

I actually told my mom about that, and the result was her raging at me, saying that if I mentioned this to the outside world, people would think I’m mentally insane, which I’m obviously not. At that time, maybe I actually took that a bit more seriously, but now, it’s like, “it’s just a movie, and the propaganda aspect of it is too obvious to miss, so what,” not to mention that hundreds of millions of people in China also watched it in the 70s, so I’m far from alone. I don’t remember how I found out about it.

Similarly, I watched around the same time 英雄儿女 (Heroic Sons and Daughters).

It was produced in 1964 and became a classic film in China. I certainly found the whole plot quite moving when I watched it. A song in it 英雄赞歌 (A Paean of a Hero)

became widely known and sung too and still is up to this day I believe.

I did not actually tell my mom about my watching that, but I told that native Chinese female about my watching that along with The Flower Girl and my mom’s reaction to my having watched the latter.

Her response was, having slightly misunderstood

what’s wrong with your mom, 英雄儿女, it was on cctv6 yesterday.

I also told her that I had watched Saving Private Ryan, which could also be regarded as propaganda of a different nature, and sigh, its director was the anti- China Jew Steven Spielberg.

Also I am reminded that I have an ABC friend without a Chinese name. I had asked him what his Chinese name was and he said he didn’t have one. But when he told me that his birthday was October 1st, I joked to him, “[姓]国庆”, which means “[his surname] national day.” He has some interesting views that I liked to laugh at.

Once when he visited me, I made some jokes using the Chinese name I had given him, and we watched this 1952 film 南征北战 the plot of which was on some battle in the civil war 4 years earlier.

We didn’t finish it since he had to leave.

I began listening to Soviet music my final year of college. A female Chinese international student from Harbin in casual chat with me told me about the song Katyusha (and also that How the Steel Was Tempered book that I had already heard about) and I found it so beautiful that I wanted to understand its lyrics in the original, authentic Russian. That was what got me learning Russian on my own, much by accident. I had a Russian friend who helped a bit and was quite supportive of it.

I was a bit anxious though since I was still very much trapped by the norms of America, especially its school system. I was afraid that people would find out and think that I was crazy or brainwashed. (Some Indian-American had said to me a summer earlier, “you seem brainwashed by the Chinese government!” notwithstanding that at that time, I was still in school and consuming and creating verbal content mostly if not almost exclusively in English and still thinking in more of an “American” mindset.) But it was more of a real start at spiritual liberation. Now, I could care so much less about what all those idiots in America think. I’m not the one who’s mentally crazy. It’s America and American culture that’s mentally sick, and becoming ever more so.

As I’ve indicated, the political reaction of many if not most in China would be quite the opposite. For instance, when I wrote about my experience growing up in America, some female jokingly commented in Chinese,

Comrade, you are a modern version of 18 Years in the Enemy Camp!

I was somewhat confused when I saw it. But after looking up online, I learned that it was referring to some TV series on some CPC agent who spent 18 years within the KMT, between 1927 and 1945.

I eventually decided to actually watch it, not just listen to the theme song, and it was entertaining enough for me to have finished almost all the 40 episodes. Contrary to the negative Hollywood portrayals of Asian men, the protagonist was a charismatic, competent, and heroic alpha male who easily attracted and seduced women, even a woman high up within the KMT who he managed to manipulate again and again to help achieve his objectives without her knowing who he really was. When she finally found out, she had to keep it a secret too not only out of love but also to avoid being implicated.

Though I read stuff on the Chinese internet starting from high school, it was really only a year ago that I began to comment, write, and meet people through that. Pertaining to this, some America raised guy at elite school asked me how I managed to meet all these people from China or in China. I don’t remember how I answered, but on this, I will remark that surely, what I’ve done is something that most ethnic Chinese who grew up in America would not even dare think of doing, due to immersion in American culture and social pressures and what not, let alone actually doing. But I guess that’s just my personality. Not being terribly conformist and doing certain things that most people would be afraid to. Can’t really help with that. Somewhat tangentially, I’ve written to a math PhD student from China too that my interest in pure math surely had something to do with my difficulty fitting in culturally in the American school system.

Finally, my sympathies to those stuck in America who feel similarly but feel at dis-ease about it. When I say this I have in mind not just ethnic Chinese who grew up in America but also the unusually woke white American who can more or less actually understand where I’m coming from, who thinks that the people running the country are basically delusional, witnessing directly there a big theatre of political idiocy. If that’s you, you are not alone.

Why native Chinese girls are 1000x better

I now chat with at least two (native Chinese girls), one of whom is a mother of two, a fair bit. Unlike with females I encounter in America, I can talk with them pretty honestly and openly about race, sex, culture, etc. I was just talking with one of them, and I thought it’s worthwhile to record some of what we said. There’s quite a lot, so expect what you see here to be far from inclusive.

I told her about ChinaSuperpower, in particular his thesis that the Anglo elite/mainstream is out for genocide against East Asians. They do it quite aggressively through the media and Hollywood, and trust me, I’ve seen enough racist Hollywood movies, with the one coming to mind during our discussion The Interview, which was on assassinating Kim Jong-Un and involved subverting some sex object like North Korean girl towards that.

I said that if the Anglo elites could, they totally would commit genocide against East Asians, and Russians/Slavics too. Obviously, blacks, Muslims, and Indians are not liked in the Anglo world, but the Anglo elites don’t really seriously care about them as much because they are no real threat to Anglo hegemony, more of an annoyance. On the other hand, you have a lot of big, tall, macho, highly competent Russian men with a base in a country still extremely powerful despite the calamity following the disintegration of the USSR, in which they lost like 10% of their population. I’ve heard that in the UK, those guys, who take many of the STEM jobs, trigger a lot of insecurity in the Brits. As for the Chinese, this need not really be explained, just look at the recent Huawei incident for example.

一些关于所谓sexual racism(性感种族主义)的想法

刚才把下面的照片发给了一位女生,问她对这美女如何评价。

extremeb2bleads.com-advert

她的评价我就不说了,没有那么高。我就说说我自己的评价吧。可能还是过于受美国媒体文化的影响,一看就觉得是典型的身材好,金发碧眼的来自有钱背景的白人美女。毫无疑问,她显得非常白,这种女人在美国是根本不会搭理我的。记得有一次,在个小博物馆里快要关门了,碰到了一个白人姑娘跟我差不多大吧,不是金发的,颜值仅仅可以,我就试试跟她聊了,一开始好像找了“理由”主动跟她说几句,比如“这博物馆什么时候关门”,或者“你觉得这博物馆的美术如何”,之后我问了她他是做什么的,“她说她在华盛顿DC一个美术的non-profit工作”,我也跟她说了我是做软件开发的。没多久,她对我的态度就是一种“alright bye”。

Different types of people

I started this blog two years ago. At that time, I was still considering going into pure mathematics and at least half of my blog posts were on pure mathematics. I thought rather little about politics at that time.

Though I always had some casual interest in history/politics which I read about on the side, I always considered those as subjects for mediocrities/losers who weren’t smart enough to do math or science. To me, the most embarrassing was to have no real hard skill yet be very politically opinionated, especially in idiotic ways. To me, the typical humanities major in an American university was the lowest of the low. Dumb with no skills AND brainwashed by liberalism. Yet, those people end up running the world much more than actual smart people, because actual smart people are naturally more preoccupied with doing stuff and excelling and achieving for real, especially in math, science, and engineering. They’re too busy to actually gain power, and in the real world, they’re easily typecast as technical people who’re there to do the high IQ work as opposed to actually manage and make political decisions. So, to have people who know graduate level math or physics run the world doesn’t seem socially realistic at all.

When younger, I was more consumed with learning and doing math and computer science and software engineering with a bit of physics too, along with Chinese language and some history and politics on the side, the latter of which I regarded as more like taking a break from an intense workout because it required basically zero effort on my part. I really worshipped people who were real outliers in math and science and strived to be closer to them. I do have some ability there, but I don’t think I have the genes such that I could have been highly successful in some STEM field even with the most optimal environment. Lately though, I’ve lost much interest in that. Likely had my upbringing been more advantageous in that regard, I would still be on that track.

Even in STEM, there is a perceived hierarchy as far as brains go, with, crudely speaking, math and theoretical physics at the top, computer science (with the exception of some fields like programming language theory perhaps) significantly lower, and biology stereotyped as for intellectual lightweights who can’t do math. To STEM elitists, those actually doing humanities fields are often viewed as untouchables. Predictably, people in different fields in academia often look down on each other and can’t really get along, and I don’t think that will ever change.

Despite my STEM elitism, I think I was at heart never so apolitical or so nerdy. For instance, I was in some sense doubly elitist in my (mostly closeted back then) disdain for Chinese-Americans who didn’t know the language and culture. Of course, there are many second generation Chinese-American males who are highly talented in STEM whose abilities and achievements I much respect. Like, I was reminded of a guy who made a major addition to the Haskell language.

ArmorUSA and ChinaSuperpower, both of whom came to the West at young age but returned to the homeland after finishing graduate school, denounce in rage the first generation Chinese immigrants in a way that I would never imagine. To a STEM person, to talk like that would be seen much as embarrassing and unprofessional. After all, people in STEM for whom their everyday work deals with objective right and wrong are much less comfortable making vague general statements especially using semi-dirty language. But eventually, I only became more aware that in people fields, winning politically is what matters, as opposed to getting the factually correct answers.

If I were another standard deviation above the mean in talent, I would probably have a pretty good chance at becoming at least very successful on a purely technical track, and I would be too busy and too fulfilled developing and realizing my technical prowess to even think about the matters that ArmorUSA and ChinaSuperpower write about. I would find much more of a haven from the discrimination against East Asian males in America in my academic and technical accomplishments. At the highest echelons of purely technical (with minimal people managing component) STEM, there really isn’t serious discrimination as far as I can tell.

After I decided that my making a career in mathematics is no longer viable, I wrote much more on topics related to China and Chinese-Americans, with a bit of technical interspersed, still with at least some idea in mind that “ethnic activist” is pejorative. Of course, there was my realizing more so that if I wrote mostly technical, it would be difficult to get people to view my blog. I would affect only people past a rather high cognitive threshold. Indeed, it can be difficult for highly intelligent people to rid themselves of mind bias, to develop more perspective and be able to relate to more ordinary people.

In China, what I like is that the Chinese people there are much more diverse than the ones in America, who tend to be STEM immigrants and their offspring. And I feel that due to shared culture, I can better relate to people there not like myself. One can conclude from this that had I grown up in China, I wouldn’t have been so nerdy and so exclusively invested in STEM.

It’s unfair for college admissions officers and people in the real world to judge Chinese there for being overly focused on math and science and thereby nerdy, one-dimensional, and lacking in leadership or communication skills, because there isn’t much opportunity for the model minority in non-STEM fields. It’s better if you’re female though.

Speaking of female Chinese-Americans, I was recently in Nanjing, where I had the chance to see the Nanjing Massacre Memorial. There, I saw a picture of Iris Chang, a Chinese-American born in 1968 to university science professors, who published a book on the Nanjing Massacre, which became a New York Times bestseller. Her other books were all “ethnic activist” ones. I do wonder how that she managed to make that book New York Times bestseller, like, why would the white mainstream promote her so much? I cannot imagine a Chinese-American male pulling that off regardless of background. There is also that she married a white guy, with a hapa baby two years old when she committed suicide at age 36.

Almost certainly, Iris feels indignant with how Chinese-Americans have been treated, as well as what was suffered under the Japanese. I would not be surprised if ArmorUSA and ChinaSuperpower would view her with some disdain, seeing her a loser or sellout begging for acceptance.

As for myself, I much admire her courage and success in getting some publicity. That was not easy at all and surely, the nature of her work took a toll on her mental health. Overall, what she did was quite positive. More negatively, I also see it somewhat as an act of begging for sympathy, which is hard to truly respect.

I’m a pretty realistic and red-pilled guy in general, and certainly not a fan of passive approaches which miss the root of the problem. (By the way, I haven’t read her book, and I don’t really intend to.) Something to point out though is that from what I gather, the reason why the legacy of the war between China and Japan is such a problem (much more so than the one between Soviet Union and Germany, where the Soviets suffered just as much if not more) is that in the end Japan was defeated by United States and the Soviet Union with Japan transformed into an American puppet state afterwards as opposed to by China. The Japanese soldiers left due to surrender as opposed to actually being kicked out of China by the Chinese. In contrast, the Red Army actually took Berlin and later created a puppet state of East Germany. As part of the arrangement, America actually let Japanese war criminals get away in exchange for data gathered through human experiments in Manchuria, and at that time, the Chinese (and Soviets) were too weak to prevent that from happening. Unlike Soviet Union with respect to the Nazis, China never got any justice with Japan. It was that Imperial Japan was not defeated by the countries most victimized that enables the Japanese today to whitewash that past, what Iris Chang tried to pressure against through her book that gave Japanese war crimes more publicity in the Western world.

The way I see it, hate towards Japan on the part of the Chinese is understandable and unavoidable but neither well-directed nor effectual. More strain in relations between the two sides over the legacy of WWII does not help either side. There is actually more room for long term mutual understanding between China and Japan than between China and the United States. Both are Mongoloid countries with a Confucian tradition, with Chinese characters part of the Japanese script. On this, ArmorUSA has also pointed out, along with Zeldovich Yakov on Zhihu, that a Chinese in Japan, so long as he speaks fluent Japanese, can pass as Japanese, but a Chinese in America will never been seen as an American due to how he looks. Between China and the Anglo world, there is also neither cultural nor ideological compatibility, whereas China and Japan are more or less part of the same culture.

Despite that it was the Asian countries most victimized, Japan, indignant with how it was treated, was actually fighting WWII against the Anglo world. China at that time was too weak and backwards to be treated as an equal though too large to conquer. In the end, the gap between Japan and the Anglo world only widened, with the Japanese mainland conquered and occupied by a foreign force for the first time in history.

I recall Iris Chang used the word “genocide.” Well, ChinaSuperpower believes that the Anglo world intends genocide on East Asians. He is being a bit extreme here but he has a point. After all, the Anglo world did unapologetically commit genocide against the Native Americans who migrated to the Americas across the Bering Strait during the Ice Age. Nobody cares about the Native Americans anymore in America. The Jews, who run much of the Anglo world at this point, have been relentlessly trying to weaken and fragment the Arab countries in an attempt to systematically perpetuate Jewish-Anglo domination of the Middle East. Moreover, I learned last year that it was also a Jewish family that was responsible for the Opium Wars. It is also the Jews and America who seek to further political division among Chinese by defending and promoting the exiled regime in Taiwan and those associated with it. (On this, I shall note that Iris Chang’s parents were from well off intellectual families and fled to Taiwan to escape the communist takeover.) My experience with Americans has been that they love to make distinction between PRC and Taiwan and Hong Kong, treating the Taiwanese as a different identity from the mainland Chinese despite that they are the same ethnicity and culture, politics aside.

It is the pro-West right wing Chinese that is the most representative of the legacy of Western imperialism in China, that ought to be destroyed for the Chinese to truly rejuvenate. They are collaborators with the Anglo world from within on its genocide agenda. Many of them, such as Kaifu Lee, are already too entrenched based on both their family background and personal actions. ChinaSuperpower is very much correct that there isn’t much time left now, and one has to pick a side and do enough to prove that one is indeed on that side.

Iris Chang might feel indignant that people in the West don’t care about the Nanjing Massacre and other Japanese war crimes in China anywhere near as much as they do about the Holocaust. Though the Japanese were no less horrific, it’s absurdly wishful to expect Westerners to care anywhere near as much about them. Heck, the West doesn’t even care about and seldom mentions the war crimes and death toll on the Eastern Front, where the Soviet Union lost a much higher proportion of its population than did China, and the Slavic people are more or less white and Western in culture. So how can one expect the West to relate in a serious way to Japanese war crimes in China? The Chinese, based on the other side of the globe, are too racially and culturally different, not to mention ideologically opposed. The Chinese, unlike white and Western passing Jews, don’t have any political power in America either and neither will their perpetual foreigner descendants. Any Chinese with non-trivial political power (assuming there actually is one) in America is almost certainly a minority agent for American interests.

As for the Chinese in America, it’s unreasonable to blame whites for not viewing ethnic Chinese born in America as their own regardless of how Americanized they are or how American their English sounds. It’s also unreasonable to blame white Americans for viewing China as a competitor or threat or for being somewhat suspicious of ethnic Chinese in America. I have in general little respect for the Chinese-Americans with the beg for acceptance attitude. I advise Chinese in America with the ability to pursue a STEM field where you can hide in academia or in a company with many immigrants where you are judged more on your objective skills and work than on how you relate with people. Learn the Chinese language and culture so that you and later your kids won’t be stuck in the West. Don’t waste your time and energy trying to be American. Don’t be a loser like that.

As for interaction with whites, I find that whites in STEM fields are generally much better. Not that there isn’t any discrimination or racial tribalism there, almost certainly it’s far better than in the people fields, and you shouldn’t have to try to find out, as trying anything seriously necessarily comes with some opportunity cost. As much as I may dislike the Jews as a group, surely the ones in STEM are much better than those in finance, media, law, politics, and the social sciences, though almost certainly, they are higher in ethnic nepotism and bias than others in the same field. I’ve interacted with Jews in math and physics who were certainly smarter and higher-achieving than I am and they were for the most part nice people as well, with arguably also fewer personality problems.

I dislike the West mostly for its political value system, which is full of shit. Politics anywhere is at least a little full of shit, and in the Western, Anglo context, it is especially especially full of shit. The Western political elites are mostly dangerous, mentally sick people on a relentless mission of destruction, subversion, and genocide of those not subordinate to them. They dress this malice with an icing of “freedom, democracy, human rights, universal liberal values,” and I can’t see how anyone with a brain could not see through this. Lately, they haven’t even been successful at that but that doesn’t seem to alter their nature. Since it’s Jews with loyalty to Israel who spearhead the West, occupying so much of the capital and positions of power, it’s only fair to place much of the blame on them. There are Jews in STEM and second or third tier rich and influential like Ron Unz opposed to the establishment but they do not have the ability to seriously effect change. More whites seem to be waking up to this over the years too, and so, Facebook and the likes respond with more censoring. I certainly encourage more people, especially those of Chinese descent, to boycott Google and Facebook, which are both Zionist run companies. Chinese should be grateful that their great union has been wise and strong enough to protect the vast majority from those.

What Japan did to China during WWII is more a symptom of the problem, far from its core. The core of problem is the Anglo world and the Zionists who run it. Japan was in opposition with the Anglo world during WWII and with China’s help, the Anglo world managed to fully conquer it. But history was set up such that afterwards, the Chinese people collectively realized that only by turning against the Anglo world could they rejuvenate and much has been achieved over the past seven decades. That post war Japan has served up to this day as deputy of Anglo imperialism in East Asia is an artifact of conquest. Inherently, Japan should actually be in opposition to or at least a competitor of the Anglo world. America doesn’t care much about Japan anymore because Japan is already conquered and no longer poses any geopolitical threat, unlike during WWII. If not for that, the Anglo-Zionists would only be teeming with resentment, hate, and yearning for genocide towards the Japanese people as was the case during WWII. This Jew who helped me awaken further to the con being played on Chinese in America once said to me that the Chinese deserved to get brutalized by the Japanese during WWII.

It was Western imperialism that further divided East Asia. Aside from the Japanese invasion of Korea in the late 16th century, China, Korea, and Japan for the most part got along. Japan’s colonization of Korea and wars against China were out of a need to prove its modernization in the face of the Western powers. The divide of Korea and the far less traumatic one of China (that very asymmetric between PRC and anti-PRC) was, too, mostly a product of Anglo imperialism, and if not for the Anglo world’s wanting to keep it that way for its own benefit, the problem would have already been resolved internally. I am sick of all those Jewish voices like Nicholas Kristof under Jewish backing in the Anglo world who evangelize bullshit further for this purpose, and unfortunately for them, time is definitely not on their side. Readers of this blog see someone who should’ve become Americanized (but decided to stay politically wise instead) utterly disgusted with the Anglo world, calling out the Jews who run it, and doing what he can to mend the damage. This could not have been done anywhere near as much without a certain degree of implicit backing tied to certain global developments over the past decade.

Whites ought to understand that East Asians are not the problem. It is a small subset of Jews and their lackeys running America that is the core of the problem. Those are the people trying to trick you and exploit you for their agenda of proliferating and perpetuating Zionist political power on this planet. My white friend, who actually has genuine elite status on STEM contests at the high school and college level, saw it very clearly. His words were

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.
