To better understand SaS’s eye-opening point of view, I suggest you read Treating China as an enemy. These two articles point out how easily we may have been brainwashed, and how we need to learn to think very differently. The future is upon us! ~J
Listen to the discussion. Every light worker is aware of the fact that for nearly 200 years now, the people of China have been made to suffer the indignity of colonialism, robbed blind and murdered by the millions, and continually threatened with coarse contempt in the venue of International Diplomacy.
For the better part of the 20th Century and over the past decade of the 21st, they’ve been busy pulling THEMSELVES up out of the abyss and for this, they are viewed a threat to the hegemony of the western Oligarchs. It would seem that western leaders are only content in celebrating their own accomplishments, and rise to wealth, power and influence.
These same autocrats would appear to be of the opinion that human achievement should only be enjoyed by those of our human family deemed fit to be chosen for the right of succession. And, they think themselves Providence as they attempt to judge and then determine that the people of China have no right to enjoy the warmth of the same sun that shines down upon us all.
The arrogance employed in their arguments exposes the ignorance exhibited in their logic for they are the intellectual concubines of their own subversion–so buried in their self-indulgent, service-to-self perspective that they cannot fathom it is not their purview to indulge themselves in such outrageous assumptions.
Everyone in this community knows that things are CHANGING–even for that distant and mysterious place we call China. Humanity has, for nearly 300 years endured the rise of a despotic West in its bid for global domination. In this common experience, we’ve continually lamented the loss of an arcadian past, suffering perpetual war, deprivation, and social desolation. Who the hell are we to now view a people we’ve labored to contain, isolate, and ostracize from the human community as something we can call a threat? After all, we invented the definition of the word: “threat” having labored to become one to the rest of the world.
On the other hand, we have the academics who proffer the notion that we should “engage” China. Really? Engage them to do what? Read the arguments. These sophists already view China as an aging society of unsophisticated country bumpkins who have yet to demonstrate a capacity for guile and cleverness sufficient to accumulate adequate wealth as though these characteristics are the most valuable of those that can be said to be exclusively human. We read:
“China remains poor, with a per capita income of just $7,000. It faces the classic “middle income trap” in a few years time when the low-hanging fruit of catch-up growth is exhausted. The country will soon have to make the switch from copying technology to cutting-edge invention, the challenge that has defeated so many economies over the years and made a mockery of so many extrapolation curves.”
There you have it, brothers and sisters. Lacking ingenuity, China has already been identified as plagiarists who will soon be confronted with the ever problematic dilemma of empirical exploration into the mysteries of basic research and applied science. This is something our pundits are certain will be their demise–after all, aren’t the people of China beneath us in terms they couch too Darwinesque? Really? Just who owns all that Western Debt anyway?
We then read: “As the World Bank warns in its latest report (out Monday), China risks coming down to earth with a thud unless it breaks the state stranglehold on investment.”
Once again, western sophists think the people of other cultures too simple and stupid to put all of that together. Is this the same “World Bank” that that conniving little cretin, Paul Wolfowitz, dragged kicking and screaming into a monumental crisis?
“At the time, Wolfowitz informed the bank’s ethics committee that he was seeing Shaha Riza, a communications adviser at the bank, and the in-house ethicists told him she should be moved to another agency and given a raise for her troubles. But the size of the pay hike (from $133,000 to $180,000, tax free) and other details about Riza’s transfer raised hackles among bank staff and sparked an investigation.”

Hubba, hubba. We all should have such an easy time of it whenever we’re engaged in EARNING a living through the marvel of honest labor–something familiar to the rest of us but a concept apparently alien to their experience.
These are the same people who now preside over the destruction of Western Europe and the undemocratic and illegitimate seizure of both the Greek and Italian Governments. And, THEY have the unmitigated audacity to suggest that they can pronounce a future value on China with all the accuracy of a biblical prophet! That being said, let me draw your attention to the wisdom of Job.
Job 21:3-13, “Suffer me that I may speak; and after that I have spoken, mock on. As for me, is my complaint to man? [A]nd if it were so, why should not my spirit be troubled? Mark me, and be astonished, and lay your hand upon your mouth. Even when I remember I am afraid, and trembling taketh hold on my flesh.
“Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, are mighty in power? Their seed is established in their sight with them, and their offspring before their eyes. Their houses are safe from fear, neither is the rod of God upon them. Their bull gendereth, and faileth not; their cow calveth, and casteth not her calf. They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance. They take the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the organ. They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave.”
Yes, little family, such are the consequences of life within this 3rd density reality. No one can escape it. All the more reason why we should treat each other with unconditional respect.
The people of China are excited about the future. They are exhibiting a confidence not seen in them since the Imperial reign of the Great Kahn. What the rest of us need to do is recover our humanity and recognize the miracle of the moment. We should rejoice with them and, if we do engage them, challenge the notion that our representatives are nothing more than conceited, money-grubbing, carpet-baggers bent on swindling China out of her present economic momentum through the “power of investment.” Might we not look at their rise toward economic assuredness as a phenomenon that might be harnessed to make the world a safer place in which to live and work; to create and produce that idyllic life-style known only to our poets?
How about exhibiting an attitude of SINCERITY with some consistency? In Romans 14:13, Paul tells the believers to make a deliberate effort to judge themselves and to see if any thing they did might turn out to be a “stumbling block” in a brother’s way. Western sages are NOT in the habit of completing such self-assessments and so, they burn a few pallets of the Islamic Koran along with everything else that they considered to be garbage. Wouldn’t it had been a nice gesture to give all those books away to some unassuming little Imam for distribution to his impoverished flock?
No, you see, these pundits don’t think that way. What’s mine is mine; what’s yours is mine. THAT’s the way they think. And so, they erect “camps” everywhere. They erect military “camps,” and political “camps.” The create social “camps,” and economic “camps.” All the while, the only “camp” that they SHOULD be recognizing is the one we call Humanity.
