Fighting ‘Capitalism’ in Russia and the Ukraine! (22.11.2022)

After all, our only choices are between Russian and Ukrainian racism – that is ‘degrees of racism’ – and is no choice at all! I bet Hitler is laughing in his grave when he heard the Russians have a privately funded military Unit named after his favourite composer – the rabidly racist Richard Wagner (the badge of which features a ‘Skull’ mimicking the ‘Skulls used in many of the Nazi German ‘SS’ insignia)! Modern, capitalist Russian has more in common with its American counterpart (as both are currently administered by the Bourgeois) than it does with the (Socialist) Soviet Union! Today’s argument is nothing more than a spat between two branches of the ruling Bourgeoisie over whose interpretation of history (and present model of modernity) will donate in the Ukraine. Once again, in true oppressive style, it is the minds and bodies of the working class that are used as the fuel to power this exploitative process.✊✊✊

Everyone’s a Warrior – or Should Be… (21.11.2022) 

Until the return fire comes in! Then material reality comes a knocking. I have always said that the link between the socio-economic system of predatory capitalism – and mental illness – remains essentially untapped and more or less completely unexplored either medically or academically. This is because the powers that be, that is the democratically elected (liberal) governments (and the elites that sustain such entities) – do not want this association known. If it were properly understood that the routine exploitation of the minds and bodies of the individual components that comprise the masses leads to a dysfunction in a significant section of that population – then the intelligentsia might start writing articles calling for its abolition and replacement. This is a slippery slope that the US government (and its European lackeys) certainly does not want the world to know or even consider. Instead, a game of so-called ‘calculated’ risk is played-out which sees the majority of brainwashed individuals retaining all the psychological and emotional damage within themselves (as a seething mess of contradictions and self-hate) – whilst limiting their actions to merely following lawful impulses. Racially hating everything ‘Chinese’ for example, is perfectly fine providing that race ‘hate’ is manifested through the acceptable mechanisms that define polite society!

Industrial Action – Soldiers and Midwives Are Workers! (12.11.2022)

That is – to STRIKE for US! The NHS is collapsing due to the privatisation drives and cuts in funding and services! People are dying due to the Tory cuts and action has to be taken! The Bourgeois Union for Nursing usually colludes with the Establishment – but no longer! The Nurses are joining the Midwives (a traditionally ‘Leftwing’ Union) in taking Industrial Action! Gee’s ballot papers arrived this morning and we are proud of her decision to Strike! Long Live the Workers! Long Live the NHS! Long Live Socialist Medicine!

Taiwan (1895-1945): Fifty-Years of Imperial Tyranny Under Japanese Rule! (24.8.2022) 

One of the policies of assimilation was the promotion of enslavement education. Japanese education became compulsory for all Taiwanese (Chinese) children! The Japanese Colonial Authorities set up ‘Public Schools’ and ‘National (Japanese) Language Training Centres” to teach Japanese language and culture. This included Japanese martial arts such as the brutal ‘Swordsmanship of Bushido’ (and later such as ‘Karate-Do’, ‘Judo’) – designed to instil the Japanese National Fighting Spirit. In the school, the Japanese colonial teachers publicly shouted: ‘It is absolutely forbidden to use Chinese language or practice Chinese martial arts and those who are dissatisfied will be deported to ’Zhina’ [支那] (Japan’s disparaging name for China).’ Banning Chinese language and martial culture and popularizing Japanese is the most venomous move in Japan’s aggressive assimilation policy!

On the other hand, enslavement education prevented Taiwanese (Chinese) people from receiving higher education. Chinese students were excluded from college and university – except in special circumstances. Under this kind of enslavement education, Taiwan basically cannot find a secondary education institution suitable for Taiwanese people. This kind of discrimination was unbearable even for Japanese domestic educators that had to enforce it, and they even wrote articles criticizing it. Under pressure, the first civilian governor, Kenjiro Tian, decided that Taiwanese children with good Japanese could enter a good middle school and study in the same school with Japanese students. The Japanese Colonial Authorities preached that there was no racial difference in Taiwan’s education. In fact, this did not fundamentally change the discrimination against Taiwanese people in colonial education. Taiwanese higher education is basically enjoyed by the Japanese, and except for the Medical College and the Tainan Higher Commercial School, all other higher education institutions hold examinations in Japan. In the era of Japanese occupation, Japanese students accounted for more than 80% of Imperial University (later Taiwan University) attendees, whilst Chinese students accounted for less than 20%. The teaching content is mainly based on the dissemination of colonialist culture, whilst the history, ideology and culture of China were all excluded, so as to remove the influence of Chinese national culture at its root.
