“Believing is seeing, but seeing is not believing.” -drawn from John 11
We Americans find ourselves being overtaken by you Chinese as a consequence of our own inept foreign policy since President Clinton. That which we believe we see often isn’t. That which we see we often do not believe. The following is from the commentator’s own perspective:
The Chinese do not characterize themselves as an equal among equals. They see themselves as superior among inferiors, and in some ways they are. Their average IQ, for example, is 105 exceeded only by Ashkenazi Jews at 110. They, however, seem deficient in genetically-driven inventiveness compared to Euro-Caucasians. Witness the Chinese seeming inability to produce an airliner. Truly, there are differences among the races and sub-races.** Any textbook of medicine confirms that fact. We Americans, however, deny that reality. The Chinese acknowledge it.
**Hilliard CB: “Genetic Blind Spots.” American Scientist: 109, p.198 (2021).
We Americans deny much of reality. Woe be to us! Any nation that denies reality dooms itself to a dismal destiny. Any nation that places an ideology divorced from reality ahead of reality deserves to fail. Should we Americans awaken from the torpor stupefying us and acknowledge reality, China will become the loser, else China will become the winner.
Recall that in China after the insanity of the Red Guard Revolution, spearheaded by Deng Xiaoping (1904–1997) in the 1980s the Chinese became increasingly accepting of reality. Chairman Deng, nevertheless, created an internal contradiction by promoting successful capitalism albeit at the economic margins while trying to preserve in the main failing Communism. Accordingly, China began drifting towards Fascism; whereby, in a context of national socialism not international socialism, an autocratic government regulates use of land and the means of production not owns them.
As described in the novels, Retribution Fever and its predecessor Inescapable Consequences, Communism contradicts natural law and, thereby, cannot win. Witness the erstwhile Soviet Union — killed without its adversary ever firing a shot. Thank you, President Reagan.
Conversely, Fascism conforms to natural law and, thereby, can win. Witness Italy immediately after Mussolini, the Father of Fascism, took power then Germany immediately after Hitler took power. Meanwhile, FDR was flopping around in failure like a fish out of water until World War Two.
“We [the Roosevelt Administration] have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before, and it does not work.” -Henry Morgenthau, Secretary of the Treasury (1934-1945)
By moving towards Fascism, China prospered at the cost of undermining the claimed Marxist ideology of Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Suddenly, President Xi now promises to reverse course. More Marx. Less Mussolini. Big mistake! The Chinese President will destroy that which has been making China the economic marvel that it has become. Never has a major nation risen economically so far so fast, even outpacing Japan after World War Two. That trend can reverse. Witness Japan in 1989.
Given the likely consequences of suffocating the duck from Peking that lays the golden eggs, the Chinese president will maneuver China into a position where, in order to preserve the power of the CCP in the name of ideology, he may have to resort to war, probably by invading Taiwan. Rally ‘round the flag, boys! Where will doing so place these United States?
Nuclear war, anyone? Not likely unless . . .
As predicted by Hitler in 1937, these United States have become a fragmenting, declining nation on fire possibly heading towards Fascism itself led titularly by a demented, corrupt, traitorous, professional politician. In a non-nuclear war over Taiwan, many military experts such as those at the University of Sydney predict that we Americans would lose with our entire fleet in the Western Pacific sunk within hours. Would Biden’s cabal respond with tactical nuclear strikes? Believe that tactical nuclear war inevitably leads to strategic nuclear war. Good-bye China! Good-bye all aerobic life on Earth.
Could the Chinese avoid American military involvement entirely by coödinating with Russia to invade Ukraine simultaneously and even with North Korea to invade the South sans nuclear weapons? The American response likely then would be a strongly worded condemnation, or would it? Plunging into Armageddon is a real possibility especially with the current crew in our own District of Corruption. Thirty percent of cases of dementia are accompanied by psychosis.
Nuclear war, anyone? Anybody’s guess. Recall the following words of the Scottish poet, Robert Burns (1759-1796):
“The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men / Gang aft a-gley.”
Besides, even after a successful invasion of Taiwan, the CCP still would be left with the same internal contradiction. Being a national hero, the Chinese President likely would remain untouchable for a while. Would he use the moment to change direction again, or would he continue to place Marxist failure ahead of Mussolini success?
As for us Americans, can we resurrect the original vision of our Founding Fathers? Yes, through Biobehavioral Science as described in detail in Retribution Fever. The same Biobehavioral Science that the CCP is using to fulfill its own particular goals often hostile to traditional American ideals and values. If we fail to do so, the consequence of our behavioral deficit could be Fascism American-style. Ironic!
*This analysis is not meant to defend Fascism, but facts are facts. Most peoples are incapable of governing themselves in a democratic republic. Witness the recent election in Chile. There is a dear cost to Fascism, however; namely, loss of liberty. Liberty is the ingredient that enriched the vision of our Founding Fathers in the form of a democratic republic. Unfortunately, over recent decades we Americans have squandered that liberty by devolving the nation into a matriarchal republican democracy.
“Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” -President John Adams (1735-1826).
