Ismail Bashimi - What do you think about China?

 I think really shows why so many of us in on the left are so inspired by China. It has had a chequered history, for sure, and it will have its fair share of right-wing hawks and psychopaths, like any country, and some of these people will be in high places, but we're hoping it's system of governmence will keep them at bay, or even remove them completely before they get too much power. 

Mankind can be brutal, and can often be so even without even fully knowing it (when pretending it to be a necessary evil), and this is why so many of us feel that China is our best chance of changing how the world is run. I'm pro democracy and yet in every democracy the aristocracy rule, not really the people. China keeps the rich out of power (like Jack Ma) which is one of the reasons the Western elite hate it so much. 

You might say that the top of the CPC are the oligarchs, or the elite, but just the same, they are scientists and engineers who have spent many years working their way up to the top of the party by showing their ability when running the provinces. It's a meritocracy where about 85% of the people who run the party came from poor backgrounds. 

China is also standing up to the Western world all by herself. The West hates and fears that China is shooting up to the top. They can't believe their four-hundred-year-old global supremacy is being challenged. They hoped that the more China developed, the more it would submit to their influence, interests, and leadership. That didn't happen. So now they will do anything possible, short of a nuclear war, to make China end. Their goal is to destroy this country. That's why, althought the United States has killed several million people and turned several regions of the earth into hellscapes since I was born in 1988, your TV, newspapers, Google newsfeed, and social media are all cursing, condemning and pandering panic and hatred of China 24 / 7. China is the worst fear of our planet's Western masters. They want you to despise and dread a country that's done nothing to you, that hasn't invaded anyone, bombed or sanctioned anyone, that hasn't overthrown any foreign government, or used its military on anything since 1979. You'll hate China and pray for its collapse, so that the West can continue to do what it's done since the age of Hernán Cortés and Francisco Pizarro — rape and pillage the earth from Latin America to Southeast Asia, and disguise its blood-spattered imperialism in the soft power and propaganda of “Western civilization" and world leadership.

China is the only major country in the nonwhite developing world, to stand up to the West.

Not my culture. Not my champion.

My thoughts are on domestic policy. That is how you help people, or build a better society.

With these people in charge...

Work on the Trans Mountain’s pipeline construction has now been stopped for four months after the discovery of hummingbird nests during tree cutting.

Members of the Community Nest Finding Network (CNFN) alerted federal wildlife officers in early April over concerns workers on the Trans Mountain pipeline in Burnaby were not complying with the Migratory Birds Convention Act.

According to the CNFN, on April 12, officers saw the felling of a tree with a hummingbird’s nest in it and as a result, Environment and Climate Change Canada issued the stop-work order until Aug. 21.

We're screwed.

Alberta is screwed.

Ahmed Fares said...

It's not just Alberta, and it's not just Canada.

PG&E wants to cut down trees to prevent forest fires. Then you get this:

Environmentalists push back against PG&E tree cutting in Santa Cruz Mountains

PG&E counters back:

PG&E: Let Us Cut Down Your Trees- or We’ll Cut You Off

They ended up with blackouts instead. How do you run an economy with intermittent blackouts?

Matt Franko said...

They keep saying the water is going to come up too… never does…

How do you run an economy thinking the water is going to come up all the time?

Peter Pan said...

Tree trimming usually has to be enforced by regulators on utility companies.

Something is fishy in those reports.

Peter Pan said...

Matt, the water is rising... but you can still take out that 30 year mortgage.

Matt Franko said...

“ and disguise its blood-spattered imperialism in the soft power and propaganda of “Western civilization" ”

LOL the whole place over there is a carbon copy of the west minus the CCP…. due to US soft power initiatives …

Once we get rid of the CCP and Putin it’ll go back to business as usual with those 2….

Same stupd thinking is used to justify the castration of dogs because it will prevent future prostate problems, amongst other silly reasons. The vet gave us a hard time when we told him that thanks, but no thanks, our dog's balls will stay put.

I wonder why this is not a best seller for men considering the many advantages that heavily outweight the only one disadvantage of no balls. I wonder...

And on China... it was always used as a prop by corrupt American businesses with the help of corrupt American politicians to keep any meaningful social reforms hoome at bay. I mean, what was McCarthy but a shill for these crooks.

Also, one more thing...

What the hell is a British warship doing in the freakin' Black Sea?

The Associated Press @AP 2h

A Russian warship fired warning shots to force a British destroyer from Russia’s waters near Crimea in the Black Sea, the Russian Defense Ministry said. The ministry said the the British missile destroyer Defender had ignored a notice against intrusion.

Hello, Russian? Next time just blow the damn thing out of the water, and you'll see -- they'll never do that shit again!

Prior to European colonization of the Americas, indigenous peoples used controlled burns to modify the landscape. The controlled fires were part of the environmental cycles and maintenance of wildlife habitats that sustained the cultures and economies of the Indigenous peoples of the Americas. What was initially perceived by colonists as "untouched, pristine" wilderness in North America was actually the cumulative result of those occasional managed fires creating an intentional mosaic of grasslands and forests across North America, sustained and managed by the original Peoples of the landbase.

Native American use of fire in ecosystems

A Century of Fire Suppression Is Why California Is in Flames

“We have 100 years of fire suppression that has led to this huge accumulation of fuel loads, just dead and downed debris from trees and plant material in our forests, and in our woodlands,” says Berleman. “As a result of that, our forests and woodlands are not healthy, and we’re getting more catastrophic fire behavior than we would otherwise.”

Addressing the problem will require a revolution in land management and in people’s relationship with fire — and there are signs both may be beginning.

As a child in Southern California, Berleman was deeply afraid of wildfire. But at community college, she learned that Native Americans used fire for thousands of years to manage forests and grasslands and protect their villages. Tribes regularly burned California’s oak woodlands, for instance, to remove underbrush and fight pests. It helped them spot prey more easily, keep weevils out of the acorns they gathered for food, and safeguard their homes from wildfire.

Forests are climate dependent.
California may have to say goodbye to some of their forests.
