The historical problem with China is that their foreign policy is 100% guided by Suntzu’s writings which don’t make a lot of sense when China is dealing with non-Chinese - it was written during the 4 kingdom period and only makes sense in that context. This is why smaller, even technically inferior armies/peoples have ruled and “humiliated” China. It’s their own fault. And they are blundering into the same trap again - trying to apply strategies that work within China to the rest of the world who do not play by those rules.

The sad irony is that the Chinese people are smart enough (100+ IQ) to run an effective liberal democracy in the mode of the West yet they are mired in authoritarianism. My hope is that they will one day see sense and join the family of Western nations. The rapidly increasing Christinzation of China is one sign that all is not lost with my hope of a fully free China.

The "mood" of our times is "Resentment",.. as we all know full well of course.

Every identity group resents one or more other identity group. Men/women, young/old, etc etc etc...

A mentality of resentment PLUS a sense of panic PLUS the "kick the can down the road" tactic seemingly being the best course of action for every situation EQUALS really wacky lemming like behavior.

Resentment (hate) is the fuel.

Panic (anxiety) is the pressurizer.

Procrastination (denial) is the lit fuse.

...boom!

The most insane policy of all is its preparation for war. China has developed one nuclear ballistic weapons system after another with no purpose except to attack American cities, American bases, and American aircraft carriers. China has nothing to offer the world except that it has become an aggressive, imperial, militaristic nation that will launch a war that it will lose, but not before it's brought catastrophe to itself and the entire world.


Clear, concise, and well written. You should be teaching foreign policy at a university, John. Of course, I know, that wouldn't probably won't happen. Colleges don't like people telling people the truth anymore. Modern 'academia', for lack of a better word, is just one more broken piece of our broken culture.
