Cadence of Conflict: Asia, May 11, 2020

China must brace itself for war. Regardless of any plot from America being true or false, how Beijing handled Wuhan—or rather mishandled—will not be overlooked by the free world. Regardless of how different governments handled the outbreak, the West will see an outbreak that wouldn’t have happened if China had followed the same forthright standards that the West does. The West thought China was on its way to following standards. But, Confucian Communism knows no standard except its own authoritarianism.

How did China get this far? There is so much in China to be desired, including the Bible-based government Dr. Sun Yat-Sen started over a century ago. Chinese medicine addresses many matters of health that elude Western pharmacy. Politeness, indirection, family, and respect—these are virtues the West could have learned from China. Except, just look at what’s happening now.

The term kowtow came from Hong Kong Cantonese. Bowing and placating the bully emboldens the bully.  · · · →

The difference between Tara Reade and Blasey Ford is tears. Justices Kavanaugh and Thomas also had tears. Then Senator Joe Biden chaired the committee at Clarence Thomas’s hearing about harassing Anita Hill two just years before his alleged assault on Tara Reade. If the allegation is true, he knew better. And, according to Tara, his words did more damage than his hands.

The DNC can’t drop Joe Biden. If DNC superdelegates overturn the favorite candidate of Democratic voters, their non-democratic methods would be exposed, just as their values already have. Remember, this is the party that supports and is supported by a promiscuous culture.

The Democratic Party has forced itself to own this. Conservative voters won’t be swayed when Democrats throw Tara under the bus. Being the party of ostensibly defending the defenseless—being the party of women, minorities, and anti-harassment—ignoring such allegations would remove their platform and their platitudes with it.  · · · →

The anti-China machine is in full gear. Western nations are cranking out new reasons to hate China every day. Some is true, some is not, all is justified because China chose to respond in control, concealment, and censorship. Much how George W Bush build a case against Iraq, which many believed to be fake from the get go, people will support action against China because of other indisputable things China has done.

The better road would have been to empower China with values rather than enabling China with money. Some foolishly thought, or at least claimed to think, that giving China Western money would teach China Western values. That’s as silly an idea as thinking that giving a child a birthday cake every day will teach the child to appreciate hard work. Instead of virtue, the West raised China be like Marie Antoinette who answered poverty by saying, “Let them eat cake.”

China’s solution to Western growth is to defeat the West with technology copied from the West. That’s not a nation that learned our values, but underappreciated our hard work to a point that they would go to war with great weakness: lack of ingenuity. Like a butcher prepares a cow, the West fattened China for the slaughter and China was all to happy to get fat and angry.

Encore of Revival: America, May 4, 2020

America is furious, both of them. Conservatives are fed up with restrictions against a virus that has no symptoms. Liberals are fed up with Conservatives not entering panic mode with them.

If you don’t believe in God, you will believe in anything. For some, it is the belief that animals will live as if forever if we are all vegetarian. For some, it is the belief that crashing economies and avoiding other humans is the only way to survive. For some, it is the belief that outbursts of rage are the only way to become happy.

Neither of the Americas seem willing to give up their respective beliefs in whatever they hold most dear. The only changes are the removal of ambiguity and the level of rage that follows. There is no “moderate” politician anymore. There is no “gray”, only monochrome vision which will only find a way to gain evermore stark contrast.

They myth of people with different ideals living side-by-side is debunked. Maybe some ideals can live in a mixed society with one person living next to a neighbor who disagrees without being disagreeable; but not with Liberals and Conservatives. It’s not that the Conservatives don’t want it, but the Liberals won’t allow it.

Our different views must not mix, they can only be partitioned with Liberal in one city and Conservative in another. That’s the only way forward and it will happen because both will become too extreme for the other.

China is under global attack from all sides. It’s not just the government, but a sizeable portion of the Chinese people who cooperate with that government. We don’t know how many in China are part of the problem or the solution. Reports from China remain silenced and Chinese culture is beaten down and overtly compliant even to tyranny. While Chinese students at Western universities volunteer themselves as mouthpieces for Chinese Communist propaganda, they join the party deemed guilty by the jury of the world.

African governments are in panic about Chinese government gentrification of their own nations. China is seen as the villain who covered up information vital to the EU. Great Britain is fed up with China, claiming the Chinese don’t just lack or hide information, but lie about it. Trump has been warning the world about China since before he was president—arguably that got him elected.

Then again, there’s Taiwan again. Former US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, has a petition for Taiwan to be admitted to the WHO. Even in a recent scuffle over some infected Navy sailors who walked around in Taiwanese public, there still are no new person-to-person virus cases in Taiwan 14 days later. The staggering success is largely accredited to Taiwan’s miraculously brilliant and swift handling of the situation. It’s all based on a germ-phobic population, slow and steady sectional school closing protocols, but it started with immediate and utter lockdown against the since-become world villain: China.

Taiwan has foresight. Maybe that’s why China wants Taiwan out of the WHO. And now, the truth isn’t hiding anymore.

Encore of Revival: America, April 27, 2020

America is under a failing attack from Regressive Feudalism. They have been called “progressives”, but with the economic pandemic caused by Democrats in State governments responding to a controversial virus, we now know their true goal. They don’t represent all Democrats—such as the public-funding-minded Democratic voters. Specifically the “progressive Liberals” have not been seen until now for the “Regressive Feudalists” they actually are. This includes many Democrats in power, along with the under-40 Democratic voters who support so-called “SJWs” and “snowflake” activists.

It’s failing, the attack. While a sometimes-seen-as “fake virus” took center stage, the Regressive Feudalists saw their opportunity. They couldn’t resist confining each serf to a manor. Enter Michigan Governor Gretchen “Witless” Whitmer. For her valiantly failed attempted return to feudalism, she likely cooked her own goose twice. As the hero to the Regressives, she may have earned her vice presidential candidacy with Joe Biden, who can’t win, along with having sealed her own fate as a one-term governor.

Regressive Feudalism has permanently failed because it tried to assert itself at a time and in a way that damaged the economy. As Clinton years wisdom says, “It’s the economy, stupid.” Republicans in the Federal government have been calling for a lift on the bans, so those Republicans will claim the economic results, which will sway the election.

But, failure never stopped Regressives before. This time, an opinion writer in the New York Times has twisted the harmless nature of the controversial pneumoniavirus into a call for targeting people with no symptoms. If many, many, many people have the virus, but don’t have symptoms, then the virus must not be as bad as it is purported. But, with the Regressive worldview that everyone is a pathetic serf in need of protection from the Holy government establishment, even good news is a reason to panic.

Just the same, Sky News finally stopped hiding reports of empty hospitals after weeks of global media censorship and deleted Facebook and YouTube videos. Their spin: Empty hospitals prove that everyone is in more danger of a virus that is so dangerous that most people will never know they had it.

Somehow, all good news chalks up to all bad news for the Regressive Feudalists, now on the march. Make no mistake: They will fail just as surely as they will keep marching anyway. They want to fight; that’s why they are Feudalists.
