Even President Xi Knows Rule One

Everyone knows Rule One in the good old US and A.

What is it? You know what it is:
Rule One: Blacks cannot be racist.
But then there is Rule Two:
Rule Two: Except for black conservatives.
But what about black conservative women?
Rule Three: Maybe not black conservative women.
Really? You serious?
Rule Four: No. Forget it. 
So when Trump State Dept. official Dr. Kiron Skinner talks about China, and the fact that we need to realize China is not a great power competitor like the USSR:
[Reagan] said I just don’t see the signs that it [the USSR] can survive a technology race with the West. So, in China, we have an economic competitor, we have an ideological competitor, one that really does seek a kind of global reach that many of us didn’t expect a couple of decades ago, and I think it’s also striking that it’s the first time that we will have a great power competitor that is not Caucasian.
What? "not Caucasian?" Are you kidding? Raacism, straight up! The Outrage! The Horror! Fire the Trumpian racist! Now!

Why even President-for-life Xi got into the act.

Which shows that that inscrutable Oriental ain't so inscrutable after all.

But wait! Dr. Skinner is an African American! So she can't be a raacist. Right?

Oh yeah. Rule Two. Black conservatives need not apply for Rule One.

Of course, Dr. Skinner makes an important point. We need to get into the minds of the Chinese Commies. I dare say such a notion goes all the way back to the World's First Strategist, Sun Tzu. A Chinese.

Now, I believe that the Chinese Commies under President Xi are making a big mistake, and are trying to re-imagine a Chinese empire under a Son of Heaven just like in the old days. It is their version of the Caucasian Left's Great Reaction against the modern era.

In other words, like the Caucasian Left, the Chinese Commies believe in a Return to Force, a powerful China that will dominate its tributary states with force, just like in the good old days. And the Belt and Road Initiative exactly symbolizes that mindset, imagining that the trade routes and power structures of the ancient world can be resuscitated.

But I think that the fundamental thing to understand about the modern world is that the old ways of conquest, of accumulating wealth by looting and plundering the neighboring state -- not to mention picking up a nice little Dis-e-ney princess like Briseis on the way -- is as dead as the Dodo. That's because a prosperous neighbor making stuff for us to buy is much more useful to us than plundering the neighbor.

Put it this way. If you plunder your neighbors, they are left poor and starving. No use to anyone. But if the neighbors are busy wiving and thriving, then they are contributing to the wealth and prosperity of the world.

The truth is that we humans prefer to learn our lessons the hard way. We always come up with some nostalgic notion like socialism that looks backward to the supposed good old days of the equality of the village community.

In China's case it is the nostalgia for the good old days when China was the No. 1 country in the world, the Middle Kingdom, and the axis of the world went north to south right through the middle of the line-up of Gates in the middle of the Forbidden City -- like the Gate of Supreme Harmony. And all the gates had a middle gate, through which only the Son of Heaven himself could go.

Think of Brit Nostalgia for the good old days of the British Empire, squared.

In other words, modern humans are never going to solve their problems with more political power. The way of the future is to walk away from political power and surrender only to the power of the market.

But everyone has to learn that the hard way, whether it is the workers, the feminists, the Black Lives Matter racists, and especially the lefty SJWs and woke-ists. Now it's the Chinese Commies learning the hard way, although you would think that they would have already learned enough from the incandescent Mao Zedong.

Still, I still don't appreciate them learning the hard lessons in the School of Life on my dime.

  1. I don't think you really appreciate the racial history of Asia...

    Don't worry, I know many white people don't really understand the meaning of World War 2 from the Asian perspective - and why Asians disavowed the Japanese to the point that they fabricated entire histories of "resistance", even though so many Chinese (Communist, Imperialist, Nationalist, etc), Taiwanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Thais, etc, once wholeheartedly embraced the Asian Co-Prosperity sphere.

    Yes, most Asians under the influence of the Japanese wholeheartedly embraced the Japanese and did prosper after a fashion under Japanese domination - the Japanese are hardly lying about that fact.

    After the Japanese lost World War 2, of course, all these vassal states of Japan disavowed their former overlords. Flying Geese formations, Yamato master-race theory, Yamato-Damashii, Shinto shrines, Japanese language, etc all became taboo. And excoriated their former imperfect benefactors.

    Yes, the Japanese were brutal - even sadistic - but that is only when compared to Caucasian/white contemporary standards. By Asian contemporary standards, the Japanese were little different from the norm except they were far more successful and able to raise the standard of living.

    And many Asians understood that.

    They gladly embraced the Japanese as their liberators - they embraced pan-Asianism - for one overriding reason...

    ...it "proved" the racial superiority of Asians over Whites.

    The Japanese had struck a blow for all Asians who had long been insecure in their racial inferiority; witnessing the evidence of it throughout their lives surrounding by White technology, clothing, social norms, movies, etc.

    It was only to be expected that so many Asians from Shanghai to Saipan would only too happily side with the Japanese.

    That is why the Japanese attacked the United States.

    It had nothing to do with conquering the Dutch Indies - after all, you don't need to be a genius to realize that America wasn't going to attack Japan - and they knew it. The Japanese were conquering the East Indies and Southeast Asia knowing the Americans wouldn't respond. Germany had attacked Britain and the Dutch in Europe, where Roosevelt was focused. The Americans, of course, weren't going to attack the Japanese then, if they tried to conquer mere British and Dutch colonies in Asia. It was for this reason that Japan, by its own pronouncements, felt confident in attacking America believing it would not attack, let alone counter-attack if hit.

    That's why Yamamomoto attacked Pearl Harbor, and published a victory lap afterwards in the Yomiuri, across Asia, and which was picked up around the World including the NY Times about "setting terms in Washington DC".

    In starting a race-war, Japan gave outlet to vehement racial hatred for white people throughout Asia.

    And therein lies the problem.

    The visceral reason why so many Asians following WW2 (and many others) worked so desperately to abolish all memory of their triumphalism alongside the Japanese, just as non-Americans do when Americans refer to their triumphalism after 9/11.

    If you start a race-war to prove the superiority of the pan-Asian race, it's all well and good as long as Asians win.

    But what does it mean for racial superiority when the Yamato, the Asian Master Race at the head of the "Flying Geese Formation", is itself defeated and conquered in totality by a White Nation?
