The mental illness recorded on film above, shows an area whereby well-armed and equipped Ukrainian soldiers were killed in earlier battles with Russian (or ‘Allied’) soldiers – with their fully dressed bodies simply being ‘left’. As a consequence, many have skeletonised whilst remaining in their dying positions. As the nature of war tends to produce dead bodies – it might be convincingly argued that this is to be expected – and this would be correct. These soldiers may well have been killed by bullet or bayonet – or perhaps caught on the very edge of some type of explosive power (as their bodies and equipment are fully intact)! What the Russian cameraman states is that this is a fluid frontline area that has seen much hand-to-hand ‘bayonet’ fighting with its occupation (and ‘control’) changing sides on a regular basis. However, what is also observed is that occupying ‘living’ Ukrainian soldiers occupied these entrenched areas whilst sitting, standing and lying next to the corpses of their Comrades who were killed during earlier battles – and whose bodies were NOT recovered or treated with respect in any way by the Ukrainian Forces still with us! Surely this is yet another example of the ‘mental illness’ that the capitalist system has ‘normalised’ and serves as the water the Bourgeoisie take great pleasure in making us all swim within!
Since 1945, the US has pursued a vicious (militarised) policy of brutal colonisation and the wiping-out of indigenous Korean religion and spirituality – in a futile attempt to prevent the growth of ‘Socialist’ ideology amongst the ethnic Korean people living to the ‘South’ of the 38th Parallel! The intensity of this destructive policy increased considerably in 1953 following the US defeat during the US War of Aggression in Korea (1950-1953)! White, Christian Missionaries roam completely unopposed throughout South Korea – encouraging the young to abandon the traditions of their parents and grandparents as part of the process of the destruction of their indigeous culture! This includes Americanisation in everyway – and the enforced importation of the US distortion of the ancient (Pagan) ritual of ‘Ancestor Worship’ from Celtic Europe! All Hallows Eve not only has very little to do with contemporary European culture – but its modern variant of ‘Halloween’ has absolutely NO place within South Korea! The only hope for South Korea is the full Unification with North Korea!
Seldom does the West Treat non-Westerners with respect. Since 1945 and the rise of US dominance, this anti-intellectual approach has become far more prevalent, powerful and normalised! Racism is an ever threatening ogre lurking in the darkness – but in this short extract (in 1971) – Clae Williams ‘revitalises’ the ground breaking translation work of James Legge, who began the translation of the Chinese ‘Five Classic’ texts in the mid to late 1800s! Although both cultures (the West and East) are still learning about one another, Legge was able to ‘see beyond’ his own socio-economic and cultural conditioning, and ‘see into’ or profoundly ‘glimpse’ how the ancient Chinese people developed a distinct cultural view of the world! The following extract is an ‘Introduction’ written by the American ‘Clae Williams’ in 1969, his modernisation of the work of James Legge, with much of its content deriving from the ample notes left behind in the James Legge Library. The ‘Shujing’ (書經) or ‘Document Classic’ is often referred to in China as the ‘Book of History’ as the ‘Documents’ concerned are ‘Historical’ in nature recording Chinese history from around 2205 – 771 BCE. It is an interesting attempt by non-Chinese people to contextualise the Chinese cultural perception of the world!
The ordinary people of capitalist India – led as they are by the fascist (and inherently anti-China) sabre-rattling BJP – are no better off after 75 years of so-called ‘Independence’ from direct British rule! Indeed, the bourgeois class of India is still controlled by the bourgeois class of a ‘White’ Europe and remains subordinate to it! Vast areas of the Indian population languish in abject poverty, illiteracy and religious ignorance! By comparison, the ‘Socialist’ market forces of the CPC STOP the destructive nature of US free market economics at China’s geographical borders and do not allow such socially destructive and corrosive forces to enter China’s hinterland! China is recouping – through its ‘Socialist’ cleverness – the wealth stolen from China over the last four-hundreds years by the ‘one-sided’ behaviour and ‘unequal’ treaties imposed by the colonialist and imperialist forces of Europe, and ‘Communist’ China is doing this by beating the West at its own game!
Since the launch of the China-CEEC cooperation mechanism 10 years ago, fruitful results have been achieved in more than 20 fields including trade and investment, interconnectivity, tourism and the response to COVID-19, Mao said, noting that all participants have benefited from such cooperation.
According to the Ministry of Commerce, China-CEEC trade expanded 8.4 percent year-on-year to $103.45 billion in 2020, and bilateral trade maintained an average annual growth rate of 8 percent between 2012 and 2020.
Large projects such as the Belgrade-Budapest Railway, which links Serbia and Hungary, benefit people in both countries, Mao added. The spokeswoman said that China has no geopolitical agenda in Central and Eastern Europe and always opposes the politicization of cooperation.
Once the ‘Darling of the West’ – Aung San Suu Kyi has proven to be something of a disappointment! She received every accolade, reward and
