Noble Prize Winners – the 14th Dalai Lama & Aung San Suu Kyi

Original Chinese Language Article: http://news.m4.cn/

(Translated by Adrian Chan-Wyles PhD)

The 14th Dalai Lama collaborated with the Nazi German interest and presence in the Tibetan area of Western China, before, during and after WWII. His thinking is definitely fascistic, hierarchical and domineering. From a historical point of view, he was never the leader of an ‘independent’ Tibet, and is not considered by ordinary Tibetans today, to have any say in the successful Socialist restructuring of this ‘special’ ethnic area of China. The organisation the 14th Dalai Lama controls is the ‘Pro-Tibetan Movement’ which was founded by the American CIA in the 1950’s, and premised upon the Western-terroristic notion associated with the political violence of forced ‘regime change’ – designed exclusively to bring-down the sovereign government of China (an ‘illegal’ act under International Law). This Western-inspired political violence has nothing to do with Buddhism as practised in the Chinese area of Tibet today, but is still used by the 14th Dalai Lama as a means to cause pain and suffering throughout the Pro-Tibetan Movement (and on occasion, within geographical Tibet itself). The Dalai Lama has been responsible for small outbreaks of politically inspired violence in Tibet, and on occasion, has been the direct inspiration for gullible teenagers setting fire to themselves (I have wrote about this elsewhere on this blog). In the 1950’s, so corrupted by CIA promises of temporal political power had the 14th Dalai Lama became, that he was authorising certain communities of misguided ordained Buddhist monks (who had taken vows of complete non-violence), to be trained by CIA Operatives in Tibet in the use of fire-arms with the intention of killing members of the Tibetan Authorities, pro-Chinese Tibetans, mixed marriage groups (between Tibetans and Chinese people – including their children), and any ethnic Chinese people living in Tibet at the time. The point of this genocidal action was to create a political power-base for the US to militarily operate from, with the intention of invading Mainland China and establishing a US-style capitalist State (these historical events have been misrepresented by Hollywood as a ‘fictional’ invasion of ‘Tibet’ by ‘China’ – an event that never happened) . This CIA movement failed due to local Tibetan people fighting back, and through the requested assistance of the Chinese PLA. Following his defeat, the 14th Dalai Lama fled to capitalist-friendly India – but continued to call for terrorist activities to be carried-out on his behalf in the Tibetan area of China.  Today, the 14th Dalai Lama lives the lifestyle of a movie star in the West (together with a cohort of dissident lamas) – being driven around in limousines and staying in 5 star hotels, etc. The Pro-Tibetan Movement – whilst advocating terrorism in China – is falsely portrayed in the West as ‘peaceful’, and this inverted interpretation probably reached the apex of its greatest hypocrisy when the 14th Dalai Lama was awarded the Noble Peace Prize in 1989 – the year the CIA and the Western media fabricated the ‘Tiananmen Square Incident’ – since revealed as a media fraud by recent Wikileaks revelations.

Tibetan Buddhism is generally of the ‘Vajrayana’ (or ‘Diamond Vehicle’) School, a later development in India containing a number of non-Buddhistic elements, (for instance, within Early Buddhism, there is no notion of ‘reincarnation’, the basis of the ‘myth’ of the 14th Dalai Lama’s ‘imagined’ authority), which has no direct historical or philosophical link with the Theravada Buddhism as practised in Myanmar (and other parts of Asia). Theravada (or ‘Elder Teaching’) School is considered a contemporary expression of one version of a very ‘early’ version of Buddhist thought and practice – premised upon the uprooting of greed, hatred and delusion from the mind, and thereby bringing a complete end to personal suffering generated by volitional karma and rebirth. Although ‘apolitical’ in nature, Buddhism rejects all forms of violence and warfare. This being the case, it is obvious that the 14th Dalai Lama does not follow this ‘peaceful’ teaching, and neither do many branches (i.e. temples or monasteries) of the ordained (i.e. ‘Sangha’) that comprise the Buddhist community in Myanmar (i.e. ‘Burma’).  This is known because it is on record that certain ordained Theravada Buddhist monks in Myanmar, have been expressing race-hate amongst the ordinary (often ‘illiterate’) Burmese people (which has peaked in recent years), aimed at the annihilation of the ‘Rohingya’ predominately Islamic minority (with some being Hindu), which live historically in Western Myanmar. This has led to inter-communal violence between Buddhists and Muslims – with each attacking the other – but obviously with the minority Rohingya being very much at a numerical disadvantage. Ethnic Myanmar Buddhists view the Rohingya as ‘foreign’ interlopers from the Bengal area of India – a phenomenon that may have its historical roots during WWII – where armed pro-British Rohingya’s (i.e. the ‘V Force’) attacked pro-Japanese Burmese Buddhist communities (purportedly carrying-out massacres of Buddhists civilians), as a means to limit Imperial Japan’s influence in the area. The point is that under British colonial rule – many different ethnic people were ‘migrated’ into Burma for labour purposes, but the ethnic Myanmar Authorities today, refuse to recognise the Rohingya minority as being ethnically from ‘Myanmar’. This means that the Rohingya do not possess Myanmar Citizenship, and despite being born (for generations) in Myanmar, are considered as unwelcome ‘immigrants’ or ‘refugees’ in the country of their birth. At the sametime, the modern country of Bangladesh does not accept that the Rohingya as being ethnically ‘Bengali’, and are unwilling to offer citizenship, or commit themselves to long-term plans involving economic aid or cultural assistance.

Aung San Suu Kyi was awarded the Noble Peace Prize in 1991 – two years after her ally – the 14th Dalai Lama. Although purportedly advocating ‘non-violence’, Aung San Suu Kyi  – a committed anti-Socialist and pro-Western capitalist, she has always been surrounded by supporters who have been perfectly happy to resort to violence to achieve political ends. Indeed, since Aung San Suu Kyi has been released in 2010, she has done very little to assist the Rohingya people – and has even been considered to have endorsed recent Myanmar government crackdowns on the Rohingya community. Ironically, in 2007, ordained Buddhist monks refused to accept food offerings from members of the then totalitarian government (a shocking and karmically significant event for Buddhists), and called for democratic reforms and the instigation of ‘Human Rights’ in Myanmar. It is astonishing to consider that this same community of ordained Buddhist monks (who were attacked and persecuted for taking on the Myanmar government), are now considered at the fore-front of anti-Rohingya agitation and violence in Myanmar. Like the Noble Peace Prize winner – the 14th Dalai Lama – who continuously advocates violence in China whilst calling for peace in the West, Aung San Suu Kyi  – also a Noble Prize Winner – appears to be condoning governmental and ethnic violence against the Rohingya minority in Myanmar, whilst ‘ignoring’ calls from both within and outside of Myanmar, condemning that country’s treatment of the Rohingya. Of course, just as I refuse to accept that all Muslims are ‘terrorists’ (a common assumption in the Western media today), I do not accept that all Buddhists are ‘terrorists’ – despite the fact that the 14th Dalai Lama and Aung San Suu Kyi are not particularly ‘good’ examples of practising Buddhists. In Communist China (and Tibet), for example, Buddhism is an important factor in the Building of Socialism in that country. Just as there is no place for ‘terrorism’ in the Holy Qur’an’, there is no place for ‘terrorism’ or ‘race-hate’ anywhere in the thousands of Buddhist scriptures. What is being seen in the duplicitous behaviour of the 14th Dalai Lama and Aung San Suu Kyi, is the clear manifestation of Bourgeois hypocrisy, and the playing-out of Western race politics. In 2016, in a very much ‘contrived’ meeting designed to further the interests of the ‘sentimentalist’ Western media, the 14th Dalai Lama and Aung San Suu Kyi ‘posed’ for photographs together – with the Dalai Lama issuing the usual empty platitudes about ‘tolerance’ and ‘compassion’ (the kind of blurb usually employed to ‘sell’ his distorted books about Buddhism in the West), and Aung San Suu Kyi saying ‘nothing’ of substance about the Rohingya situation – a response that she has well practised of late. It seems that the 14th Dalai Lama ‘tolerates’ everyone except ‘Socialists’ and the Chinese, and that Aung San Suu Kyi also ‘tolerates’ everyone except ‘Socialists’ and the Rohingya.  A better example of two Buddhist hypocrites will difficult to find throughout history, or across the contemporary world!

达赖督促昂山素季缓和佛教徒与罗兴亚穆斯林关系

2016-06-21 11:13:18 作者: 赵钊 评论: 字体大小 T T T
“缅甸领导人昂山素季有道德上的责任去缓解占多数的佛教徒和少数罗兴亚穆斯林之间的紧张态势”,达赖喇嘛最近再次强调了他的这个观点。

据中国西藏网6月20日报道,“缅甸领导人昂山素季有道德上的责任去缓解占多数的佛教徒和少数罗兴亚穆斯林之间的紧张态势”,达赖喇嘛最近再次强调了他的这个观点。

达赖喇嘛说,他在与昂山素季见面时强调了他的这个想法,后者刚刚在缅甸首次民主选举中当选国务资政,成为实际上掌控缅甸的人。

“她已经获得诺贝尔和平奖了,所以道德上她应该……为缓解佛教界和穆斯林之间的紧张作出努力”,达赖在华盛顿接受路透社采访时说道,“我实际上告诉她,她应该公开地说出来” 。

近几年来,佛教徒和穆斯林之间的暴力冲突为缅甸的“民主改革进程”投下了阴影。维权组织尖锐地批评昂山没有为罗兴亚人的困境公开说话。

在缅甸这个以佛教徒为主的国家,很多人对罗兴亚穆斯林有一种普遍敌视的情绪,其中也包括昂山素季所领导的民盟党内一些人及其支持者。2012年,有100多人在暴力冲突中被杀,大约125,000名罗兴亚穆斯林成为无国籍人士,在帐篷中生活,行动也受到严格限制。

达赖喇嘛说,缅甸的一些佛教徒“看起来似乎对穆斯林有某种消极态度”,有这种想法的佛教徒应该“记住佛祖的脸”。“如果佛祖显灵,他肯定会保护这些穆斯林兄弟姊妹的”,达赖说道。达赖非常喜欢讲类似的话来表达自己的“慈悲”,甚至对IS也表示要“倾听理解和对话”。

昂山素季对达赖的“呼吁”作出了简单的回答:“情况真的很复杂”。

昂山素季在不久前与美国国务卿克里的会面中还称,缅甸需要“足够的空间”来处理罗兴亚人问题,她认为使用“情绪性表达”只会让情况更复杂。

当被问到如何看达赖喇嘛这些评论时,昂山素季的发言人表示,“让国际社会认识到这个问题的敏感性是很重要的。要避免任何使事态恶化的举动,这只会让新政府更难应对”。发言人还表示,昂山素季已经在尽最大的能力解决这个问题了。

因同为“诺奖获得者”,昂山素季与达赖喇嘛曾经走得较近。但由于达赖对缅甸内政的多次插手,以及昂山素季当权后日益亲华的态度,屡次被曝“不和”。

罗兴亚人问题是历史、政治和宗教交织的结果,但无论情况如何,达赖喇嘛都并没有资格置喙。一方面,嘴上谴责“暴力”的他实际是“3·14”事件以及多起藏区自焚案件的幕后人,早被中央定性为“在西藏制造社会动乱的总根源”;另一方面,一直自称只是一个“简单的僧人”的他,竟多次干涉他国政治事务,其虚伪性不证自明。(中国西藏网 文/赵钊)

Loyal Muslims in China

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

An elderly Chinese Muslim man comes to the local medical clinical for his ‘free’ weekly check-up and treatments. The Communist Party of China (CPC) supports all religious groups with free education, housing and healthcare. All the religious groups have to do is assist the CPC is building Socialism for EVERYONE – religious or not. The CPC dos not blame China’s religious people for extremism – but rather the infiltration of the motherland by ‘foreign’ influences designed specifically to disrupt the internal peace an harmony of China herself. By and large, China Muslim populations are Chinese first – Islamic second – and completely loyal to the Chinese State. This applies even to the Uighurs – who are of Turkic origination – despite the fact that a small minority (influenced by Western and Middle Eastern terrorist forces) have carried-out atrocities against the Chinese population. The Chinese population has no hatred or anger toward these terrorists – even though such misled people have caused tremendous sorrow and loss to other innocent Chinese families who never did anything wrong toward Muslims. This is because China’s Socialist education system emphasises ‘Internationalism’ over ‘nationalism’, or backward ethnic enclaves. People have the right to be different, and not to be attacked for that difference, but the problems arise when certain members of these religious groups listen to the hate-filled rhetoric of the West (which is a priori anti-Communist), and take it upon themselves to attack the very Socialist System that nurtures their belief system and protects them from external attack. Regardless of how many ‘foreign’ inspired terrorist atrocities occur in China, the West does not possess the power or influence to dislodge the CPC – which has lifted more people out of poverty than any other government in the history of the world!

Why China Will Defend North Korea: China-DPRK Friendship & Co-operation Treaty

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

People have asked why China will come to the aid of North Korea if the West (i.e. the US-led UN), attack North Korea – and the answer is one of treaty and legality. A diplomatic agreement exists between Mainland China and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). This agreement is entitled in the Chinese language as ‘中朝友好合作互助条约’ – which translates into the English language as the ‘China-DPRK Friendship and Co-Operation Treaty’. It is also informally known in the Chinese language as the ‘中华人民共和国和朝鲜民主主义人民共和国友好合作互助条约’ or ‘People’s Republic of China and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation’. This Treaty was ratified on July 11th, 1961 in Beijing, with Zhou Enlai representing Communist China and Kim Il Sung representing Communist North Korea. This important Treaty has been automatically renewed twice, and is now valid until 2021.

The Treaty primarily guarantees full military (and other assistance) to the other Contracting Party when the Contracting Party is in a State of War. The parties do not participate in any alliance, group, action or measure that is hostile to the other party. In the economy, culture, science and technology,full cooperation is to be carried-out. Both sides agree to grant where relevant – full economic and technical assistance. From the date of signing (1961), this Treaty is valid and binding to both sides for 20 years, and has been renewed in 1981 and 2001. Either side can request an alteration to the terms, or an annulment of the Treaty in writing 6 months prior to each intended re-newal date.

The Treaty was approved by Liu Shaoqi, Chairman of the People’s Republic of China on August 30, 1961, and was approved by the Standing Committee of the Supreme People’s Political Consultative Conference of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on August 23, 1961. Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai and DPRK Prime Minister Kim Il Sung (as the representatives of the two sides) met on September 10th, 1961 in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang to exchange articles of agreement. In accordance with Article 7 of the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Cooperation between China and the DPRK, this Treaty entered into force on September 10th, 1961.

The Eurocentric Myth of John Titor: ‘White’ American Time-Traveller

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

I am not going to over-analyse this topic, which comes-up every now again. John Titor materialised on the early internet during 2000-2001. The details can be read on a number of websites, but the gist of the story is that John Titor claimed to be a time-traveller from the near future – 2036 – who, as part of a special military unit, was tasked with travelling back in time to collect a specific IBM computer from 1975. When his forum postings stopped in late 2001, it was thought that he had returned to his time. Like any myth, the story has expanded with some claiming John Titor visited as early as 1998 and sent a number of faxes, and that he may have re-surfaced in 2009. Whatever the case, there is now a story that his parents (whom he visited in 2000-2001), now have a lawyer, and have gone into hiding – but not before publishing a book about their ‘son’ and his time-travelling ways! Of course, none of this is provable and even his supposed parents (or the lawyer for that matter) can not be found. Like a religion, lack of evidence has become proof of truth. The ‘real’ person who wrote the posts in 2000-2001, did so over a number of forums in the days before search-engines, and so today this body of literature can be read in its entirety. This individual pursued a ‘script’ with a definite story-line – which he kept to – regardless of forum visited. None of his ‘predictions’ were right. This is despite many contemporary followers of Titor claiming that things have developed ‘sort of’ like he said. The reality is that none of his very precise predictions about the future cane true in anyway. Titor was well prepared for this, as he also stated that there are a number of different time-lines in the future, and our time-line (despite him being in it), may not be the same as the future he had already lived. So far, so good. A stranded time-traveller who happens to be hanging-out with his mum and dad – whilst on his way back to a future he can describe in detail, but yet cannot ‘predict’ in any meaningful manner!

What is interesting, is that John was apparently unaware of his own ‘Slavic’ surname, which is found mostly throughout Russia today, with a small number spread throughout the world. This is how a Russian online genealogy forum defines and describes the surname ‘Titor’ (Титор):

‘The name Titor is derived from the nickname Titor. The nickname “Titor” comes from the nominal “Titar”. In the southern and western dialects this word has the meaning of “church elder”. Most likely, the ancestor of the owner of this family name was a clergyman.’

(Фамилия Титор ведет свое начало от прозвища Титор. Прозвище Титор происходит от нарицательного «титарь». В южных и западных диалектах это слово имеет значение «церковный староста». Скорее всего, предок обладателя этой фамилии был церковнослужителем.)

This is despite the fact that he mentions Russia using nuclear weapons on the cities of the US – apparently as part of Russia supporting one side in a ‘new’ American Civil War. The author of John Titor’s scribblings is obviously a ‘White’ American, as he uses the usual anti-Chinese rhetoric in describing that country – claiming that Communist China invades Korea and Japan, but suffers a military defeat at the hands of ‘White’ Australia! This is pursuing the age-old racist idea that China and her people are racially and culturally inferior, and although they may ‘bully’ other Asian countries, when they encounter the superior ‘White’ race and culture – they are invariably defeated. This is the usual bourgeois, Eurocentric attitude prevalent in the US today, and not an attitude indicative of a ‘new’ future where all the ‘old’ ways of viewing the world have been smashed and transcended. For a non-White person reading Titor’s posts, it is obvious that the narrative that he builds for the future is ethnically biased and symbolic of contemporary racist attitudes prevalent amongst many White communities. This should not be surprising for a man who does not even know the Slavic origins of his own surname.

Soviet Red Army Liberates Manchuria (North-East China) August-September – 1945

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

At the behest of the United States under President Roosevelt – the Soviet Red Army Declared War on the fascist Empire of Japan in 9.8.1945 – and fought their way into the Chinese city of Harbin not long after. Although the Japanese Authorities hinted that Japanese Forces (in the form of the 700,000 man Kwantung Army) would offer little resistance, in reality however, Japanese resistance was very strong in places, leading to many Soviet casualties. The Imperial Japanese had been agitating in ‘Manchuria’ (i.e. North-East China) since at least 1931, and their forces had committed continuous atrocities against the local Chinese population, and prisoners of war. The Japanese plan was to eradicate the Chinese presence from North-East China, and use this ‘new’ space to accommodate millions of Japanese migrants. This strategy reflected that of Adolf Hitler and his plans for a ‘Greater Germany’ in the Soviet Union (by eradicating the Slavic race). Following the bloody and brutal Battle of Okinawa, President Roosevelt was not keen on the idea of further large scale conventional battles with the Japanese Imperial Forces, and certainly did not favour the idea of a conventional US military invasion of the Japanese homeland. As he had been discussing with Britain’s Winston Churchill about the possibility of encouraging the destruction of the Soviet Red Army by bleeding it dry against Nazi Germany – a plan was hatched to try and bleed it dry against the Japanese. The problem was that instead of bleeding it dry – the Soviet Red Army grew ever stronger with each campaign and victory! As matters transpired, the Red Army was spectacularly successful in China and the islands off the North-Coast of Japan. The local Chinese population welcomed the Soviets with open arms, and when the campaign was complete, the Soviets handed the captured area over to Mao Zedong and the Communist Party of China (together with all its captured Japanese industry and weaponry). This acquisition allowed the CPC to consolidate power in North-East China, and eventually defeat Chiang Kai-Shek in the South. As a consequence, and contrary to the English wikipedia pages that still espouse false US Cold War propaganda as ‘fact’, there were no atrocities committed by the Soviet Red Army in China. There are no Chinese language texts, Japanese language texts, or indeed Russian language texts recording any untoward behaviour. As can be scene from some of these photographs (all gathered from the Russian language internet), there were even Westerners present in Harbin during the Soviet ‘Liberation’ and not one recorded any incidence of bad behaviour on the part of the Soviet Red Army.  It is remarkable today, to witness in the West a pro-fascist mentality developing which attempts to re-write history and present the perpetuators of world fascism as being the ‘victims’ of those who fought back against the real atrocities. The Nazi Germans (who committed the holocaust), and the imperial Japanese that pursued a genocidal policy against the Chinese – are falsely packaged as being the real victims! This is nonsense and nothing but a rightwing attempt at clearing its own conscience that has the deaths of countless millions upon it.  The historical evidence is clear – Nazi Germany and fascist Japan both thought that they could eradicate large swathes of humanity from the earth through military aggression – and both failed due to the strength of the Soviet Red Army and the resistance to invasion Of China by the CPC. I include a documentary with these pictures that clearly describes the Soviet campaign in Manchurian. The Soviets recorded 9 ineffectual Kamikaze attacks – with Japanese troops surrendering en mass after each defeat suffered. Of particular note is the successful use of Soviet paratroops to quickly ‘liberate’ forward areas before being relieved by Soviet infantry and tanks within 24 hours.

DPRK: Is Kim Jong Un Giving-Up the Hereditary System and Rejoining the ‘Communist’ Camp?

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

(Research & Translation by Adrian Chan-Wyles PhD)

Translator’s Note: Although the terms ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’ were apparently ‘removed’ from official documents in the DPRK a number of years ago, this did not mean that North Korea abandoned its Socialist or progressive institutions or establishments. On the contrary, the DPRK carried-on building Socialism and striving to establish Communism by looking after its people and providing for all their educational and material needs.  The idea that the removal of these two terms on paper equated with the abandonment of Marxist-Leninism in practice, is an error of interpretation. The only issue of note is that of the ‘heredity’ system in North Korea, and the dominance of that country’s government by a single branch of the ‘Kim’ family – but this is a matter for the North Korean people and no one else. Finally, although China is attempting to remove US and South Korean aggression against North Korea (by calling upon all sides to exercise restraint and arms control), nevertheless, articles within the Chinese press make it blatantly clear that China will come to the aid of North Korea should the West attack it. ACW (8.7.2017)

In May of this year (2016), the DPRK’s Workers’ Party will hold its 7th National People’s Congress.  It is thought that during this 7th Congress, the term ‘Communism’ will be re-written into the DPRK’s Constitution, or that slogans using the term will be used throughout the DPRK. In fact, with around a month before the 7th Congress begins, the DPRK Workers’ News publication has increased the intensity of its coverage, with Editorials including the word ‘Communism’! A typical example reads:

‘Military and civilian workers in the DPRK are striving together to build a Bright New Dawn and a Great Shining Path as a means of establishing ‘Communist’ civilisation in the country!’

The term ‘Communism’ has not appeared in the North Korean media for a long time. In April, 2009, the Supreme People’s Assembly (held in North Korea) decided to remove the term ‘Communism’ from the Constitution. Then in June, 2014 (after 39 years of ideological consistency) altered the Guiding Principles of the Constitution and the Workers’ Party Guiding Regulations for the first time, stating that ‘the only way to establish the DPRK Workers’ Party’s Ten Principles’, is only through the ‘Baishou Mountain Descent’ System – whereby Kim Jong Un’s regime was confirmed as being purely ‘hereditary’ in nature.

With the abandonment of the terms ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’, and the movement away from the ‘dictatorship of the proletariat’ – and the ‘Communist’ vision followed by Kim Il Song and Kim Jong Il – North Korea has become a de facto ‘Dynasty State’. This seems to suggest that Kim Jong Un’s rule is now viewed as more important than that of his ancestors, and that the Marxist-Leninist basis of revolution and workers’ struggle has been side-lined, or relegated as less important.

When North Korea followed the ‘Communist’ path, it was very much viewed as a hermit country with little interest in the outside world. With the abandonment of ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’, and the establishment of Kim Jong Un’s rule, the DPRK has become very active on the international stage, and has attracted unwanted and unwarranted attention from the capitalist West – particularly the US. Could it be the case that to remedy this, the DPRK is going to re-engage ‘Communism’, and abandon the Kim Family inheritance pathway?

The DPRK media has not used the term ‘Communism’for around 14 years – but its sudden re-emergence, it does appear that a change is coming. This is significant, as the DPRK has only held 6 previous Congresses in 1946, 1948, 1956, 1961, 1970 and 1980. The upcoming Congress will be the first in 36 years since the rule of Kim Sung Il!

放弃世袭! 金正恩考虑重投“共产主义”阵营

导读: 朝鲜将于今年5月召开劳动党第七次全国代表大会。有观点认为,“共产主义”一词有可能会在本次七大上重新写入宪法,或者朝鲜政府将提出与共产主义相关的口号。
距离朝鲜劳动党第七次全国代表大会还剩大约一个月时间。朝鲜媒体已经展开了如火如荼的造势活动,以迎接这个重要场合。与此同时,有一个词也意外出现在宣传内容里——“共产主义”。朝鲜《劳动新闻》7日刊登的社论中写道,
“军人建设者和人民要将黎明大街建设成为符合文明国家面貌的共产主义理想大街。“
“共产主义”一词已好久没有出现在朝鲜媒体上。2009年4月,朝鲜召开的最高人民会议,决定从宪法中删除“共产主义”一词。2014年6月,朝鲜时隔39年首次修改规范力度高于宪法和劳动党章程的《树立党的唯一思想体系十大原则》,明文规定了“白头山血统”—金正恩一家的政权世袭制。
朝鲜毅然摒弃“共产主义”,无异于向全世界宣布朝鲜进入“王朝国家”。更为重要的是“共产主义”一词消失,代替的是“金日成和金正日主义”;同时删除了“无产阶级专政”。将原来“为完成社会主义、共产主义伟业而斗争”的部分修改为“为完成主体革命伟业而斗争”。这就意味着比起共产主义理念,金氏一家唯一领导体系更为重要。
当年朝鲜去共产主义的行为并未引起世人轰动,毕竟所有人都心知肚明:朝鲜此举只不过是捅破了一层窗户纸罢了。然而,近来朝鲜官媒再次提及“共产主义”,不免令人浮想联翩。难道在金正恩领导下的朝鲜要回归共产主义,甚至放弃金氏家族世袭?
韩联社认为,朝鲜媒体近期开始提到已有14年未提的“共产主义”,或表明共产主义一词有可能会在本次朝鲜劳动党七大上重新写入宪法,或者朝鲜政府将提出与共产主义相关的口号。
朝鲜劳动党七大是朝鲜时隔36年再次召开全国党代会,上一次朝鲜召开党代会还要追溯到金日成主政时期的1980年。朝鲜劳动党在历史上共召开过六次全国代表大会,分别是在1946年、1948年、1956年、1961年、1970年和1980年。

Jeremy Corbyn and My Considered Position on the ‘Jade Forest’ (玉林 – Yu Lin) Dog Festival (13.6.2017)

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

In 2015, Jeremy Corbyn raised the issue of the Yulin Dog Festival in Parliament – expressing his concern for the welfare of the dogs concerned, the conditions within which they are allegedly kept, and the manner in which they are apparently killed. He called upon the Chinese government to ‘ban’ this event which sees around 10,000 to 15,000 dogs killed and eaten each year during the evening of the day of the Summer Solstice. I have written numerous times on this blog about Animal Rights in China, and have complained continuously about the Eurocentric and racist manner in which Western narratives of China – continuing the imperialist paradigm of attempting to ‘dominate’ at the point of contact – portray one-fifth of humanity (i.e. one billion people) as racially inferior, morally flawed, and culturally and politically backward. I must state from the start, that as a vegetarian I support Jeremy Corbyn’s unflinching support for Animal Rights, but would urge caution when acting as an intermediary for certain Animal Rights Groups in the West, that whilst using the veneer of animal welfare when it comes to assessing China, nevertheless pursue a thoroughly ‘racist’ paradigm in their critique of China. The race-hate aimed at China through Western Animal Rights rhetoric, is often delivered through purely ‘imaginative’ scenarios with no basis in fact. For a start, most involved in this kind of malignant ‘China watching’ do not possess the ability to read, write, or speak the Chinese language, and therefore are unable to provide any Chinese language source articles or materials to support their opinions. I want to make it clear that Jeremy Corbyn did not partake in this hyperbole, but rather very carefully read-out details (in English) that I have read in the Chinese language on the Mainland Chinese internet. In fact, as I am sure Jeremy Corbyn already knows, eating dog and cat meat has been illegal in China for a number of years – but there is a legal distinction between pets which are protected under Chinese law) – and dogs and cats that are bred to be eaten. This must be understood in a correct historical context, as the Communist Party of China has stated that it would prefer that the eating habits of feudalistic China, not be retained in an affluent, progressive and forward-looking Socialist China. As far as the Yulin Dog Festival is concerned, the Local Government of Yulin has officially stated that it is an event not supported by the CPC, and which the authorities have interrupted on numerous occasions – with the police ‘freeing’ lorry-loads of dogs into the hands of local Chinese Animal Rights activist (yes – China has ‘Animal Rights activists’) – of course, very little of this reality in China, finds its way into the West. As I am concerned about the ‘Eurocentric’ nature of much of the criticism of the Yulin Dog Festival in the West, I cannot, and do not, align myself with it, as I am well aware of its racist undertones (despite the fact that I personally believe the killing and eating of animals is wrong). The only way I could support such a criticism of the Yulin Dog Festival from a Western position, would be if all the correct Chinese cultural details were acquired and understood by the various (and concerned) Animal Rights Groups in the West, as well as including and/or consulting the Communist Party of China (CPC) and Chinese Animal Rights Groups (in China), which should be invited to contribute to the drafting of the eventual statement of criticism. As matters stand, very few Westerners understand that the CPC has drafted many Animal Rights laws, and is even considering a universal legal statement about the sanctity of animal life (this is still being debated due to its legal implications for commercially farmed meat). This has come about due to the activities of Mainland Chinese Animal Rights Groups that work quietly but determinedly behind the scenes and inaccordance with the law. Many people in the West have no idea that Chinese Buddhism (even under Communism), insists that its practitioners follow a strictly vegetarian (or vegan) diet, and that compassion toward all beings (including animals) is a primary practice. This is the motivating attitude that underlies the formation of the many Chinese Animal Rights Groups in Mainland China. These groups do not exist in ‘opposition’ to the CPC, but work in co-operation with it, slowly but surely working through the required re-forms so as to ensure that animals are treated with respect. I think it is unreasonable to demand that the CPC ‘bans’ the Yulin Dog Festival (as the CPC never sanctioned it in the first place) – whilst Animal Rights Groups in the West continuously fail to call for the ‘ban’ of 24hr slaughter factories that exist throughout the UK (as this would upset the capitalistic profit of the industrialised meat industry).

The Psychological & Physical Deficiencies of Xu Xiaodong (徐晓冬)

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

It is a curious coincidence that Xu Xiaodong was 39 years old when he challenged a 50 year old Taijiquan Master in April of this year, and that of the example of Iwakura Tsuyoshi (岩倉豪 – famous for punching the 65 year old  Yanagi Ryuken (柳龍拳) – who was himself 35 years old, beginning a MMA career at 39! Being in the mid to late 30’s seems to be very late in life to start a Western combat sport within which many peak-in around 25 years old! It maybe that these two characters, as they were approaching middle-age, and having abandoned the traditional Chinese martial arts idea that elderly people can be effective martial artists, were desperate to make their mark on a foreign combat sport that has no real currency within Chinese culture. What is of further interest is that both Xu Xiaodong and Iwakura Tsuyoshi are notorious for not possessing any tangible mixed martial arts ability, either physically or psychologically. In fact, both individuals might be described as ‘seriously’ limited in their MMA abilities, and certainly nowhere near the standard of world level. Many MMA practitioners in the West possess much better skills than these two, and yet never make a name for themselves (such is the competitive nature of this sport). Having made this clear, why then are these two MMA fighters so popular in the West? The answer lies in that the examples of these two individuals have been used in the West by a particular strain of MMA practitioner that pursue a far-right political narrative that demonises China, and interprets Chinese culture as being the deficient manifestation of an inferior race! The film footage of Xu Xiaodong (against Master Lei Gong), shows a man with no real mixed martial arts skills – who could have been easily defeated with groin-kicking or throat-punching, etc, and whose mental state is often described as ‘mad’ even by himself! The above photograph shows Xu Xiaodong confronting police as he rampages against traditional Chinese martial arts in early May of this year.

Successful Corbyn Drives Political Rightwing into a Tight Corner!

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The misled Scottish people turn to the racist Tories to cement their sovereignty and their freedom, the racist Tories turn to the equally racist, homophobic and terroristic DUP to legitimise Theresa May’s electoral failure, and the bias BBC have just asked Jeremy Corbyn to resign – but remains absolutely ‘silent’ about the dangerous political lurch to the right by the British political establishment! This fascistic insanity maybe added to the general mainstream media (such as the radio channel LBC) claiming that if only Jeremy Corbyn was not the leader of the Labour Party, and a more moderate (i.e. ‘capitalist supporting’) Candidate was in his place, then Labour would have won an outright majority – completely ignoring the historical fact that the Labour Party had already (and unsuccessfully) tried this compromising approach with Ed Miliband in 2015! What is happening is that the middle class is flexing its political muscle – and has been doing so since the demise of the Soviet Union in 1991 – completely unafraid of the consequences of its own (often illegal or unlawful) behaviour. The USSR offered a tangible threat to the Western Bourgeoisie which nolonger exists, whilst a vicious, ruthless and relentless racist campaign against Communist China ensures that the Western Working Class imbues these anti-Chinese racist attitudes, and does not ideologically associate itself with the Chinese proletariat. In fact, so successful has this racially motivated campaign been that its attitudes have become associated with logic, and are equally pervasive as much on the political left as on the political right.  This lurch to the right can be easily discerned across Europe (with the EU’s anti-Socialist agenda), and the rise of Donald Trump in the US. It may well be safe to say that only Jeremy Corbyn now genuinely represents the Socialist position within mainstream politics, and that the British establish will try anything to get rid of him in anyway that it can. I think the Tory position amounts to ‘do not pay any attention to the man behind the curtain’! I think there is now a distinct possibility of race riots developing on the British streets, if the British people do not put a stop to this madness!

China’s View of Evolution (Email Exchange 19.5.2017)

Dear W

Thank you for very interesting email.

This is from Chinese Sources – and adds to the debate:

Red Deer Cave People 马鹿洞人 (蒙自人): Unknown Humans Discovered in China

https://thesanghakommune.org/2017/01/31/red-deer-cave-people-马鹿洞人-蒙自人-unknown-humans-discovered-in-china/

You probably remember Alice Roberts in China – where she stated that the Chinese Authorities taught (in schools) that Chinese people evolved from Homo Erectus in China – and do not share the ‘Out of Africa’ lineage shared by the West? I cannot find any evidence for this thinking today, on the Chinese language internet, with every theory pointing toward the ‘Out of Africa’ thinking. I also remember Chinese researchers attempting to prove a ‘non-African’ origination for Chinese people. I think around 5000 DNA samples were taken from men across China – and every single one possessed the ‘Out of Africa’ DNA marker. However, it is my understanding that ALL hominids developed in Africa and migrated-out at various times. Modern humans stem from a migration around 50,000 years ago (of perhaps just 200 individuals), and spread across the world (encountering different types of hominids that had migrated out of Africa at earlier dates) – but the Chinese thinking might contend that Chinese people evolved from an earlier migration ‘Out of Africa’ – from a completely different evolutionary line of descent (from the rest of modern humans).

Until proven otherwise, I think there is evidence for this. However, we must be eternally vigilant for Eurocentricism and political bias in Western sources, designed to continuously work to undermine Mainland Chinese science simply because it is not ‘European’ or emanating from a capitalist regime. One distinguishing feature of a Socialist society is that its education system ‘rejects’ any and all notions of ‘nationalism’ – because it is this ‘nationalism’ which imbues ‘racism’ – and that was used by the West in the past to keep China in a subjugated state. It is the West that uses nationalist racism against China (and not the other way around – as suggested by the otherwise interesting article). My view is that we do not yet know everything about our ‘human’ past, and that we must not assume too much (either way), but quietly gather evidence and attempt tentative interpretations. If it turned-out that ALL human life somehow developed in China (or just the ‘Chinese’ lineage of it), I would be very happy, but even if it is eventually proven that we all just just wandered ‘out’ of Africa, this pleases me also, as both models serve to ‘break-up’ Eurocentric notions of racial superiority. It is ironic that it could possibly be true that two ethnicities of human beings (i.e. the Chinese and the Africans), both historically oppressed and persecuted by Europeans, would turn-out to be far older in origination, and to have built advanced cultures very early on!

Best Wishes

Dear Adrian,

You might find the attached link to be of interest.  We’ve talked about Peking Man before, and some Chinese scientists think that modern Chinese people evolved directly and exclusively from Peking Man.  The attached article was only published last year, so it’s the most recent update on the theory.

 

Kind regards,

 

W
