Less Than Two Weeks To Go

Thanks to Trump, the Dictatorship of Zambezistan is far coming closer to home than we could ever have imagined. The USA has always been the beacon of Democracy and rule of Law for people around the world and
its’ power of American Democracy was always at the heart of the American Dream. Now what do people have to look for? European stagnant bureaucracy with some sprinkling of scandinavian social democracy? Or how about some Chinese authoritarianism, with a side dish of Russian oligarchy? Thank you Trump.

For those of us who have been screaming for the past four years about the dangers of Trump and his base, it is cold but welcome comfort that Donald Trump has made democracy a mockery. After last year’s disastrous response to the Covid-19 pandemic despite supposedly possessing the ‘best’ medical facilities and personnel in the world, they now have the spectacle of an obviously government facilitated attempt at a coup d’état. It may be the straw that broke the camel’s back for many Republicans but for those of us watching from afar, the road that Trump has led America down is a well trodden one and the inevitable assault on democratic institutions was all too clear.

If this can happen in the United States it can happen anywhere. World leaders reacted with shock as the building housing the legislature was taken over by violent Trump supporters. The events marked a huge transition for a nation which was once viewed by many as a beacon of freedom and democracy. European leaders condemned the scenes as “disgraceful” and “an attack on democracy.” The German foreign minister called on Mr Trump to “accept the decision of American voters.” I’ve heard many commentators talk about this sordid episode as a humiliation and embarrassment to US foreign allies and others around the world who look to this country for leadership and stability.

The US political system is constructed to empower obstructionists and has gotten increasingly corrupt as moneyed interests and their lobbyists have soiled the entire political process. In addition, dealing with the vast and growing divisions within the US will require some way to control the spread of misinformation in the right wing media and on social media. How to do this while maintaining freedom of speech? Thus, for all these reasons, the likelihood is that the US will continue to disintegrate as a political entity. I take no pleasure in writing that. The US is very important to international stability, even if it has often grossly abused its power.

The United States will never again be seen as that shining beacon of democracy it has enjoyed for much of it’s history. The only way to stop and reverse this decay is for them to change its beliefs and its electoral strategies. But are people who have spent their lifetimes sowing racial animus and opposing effective government really able to turn over a new leaf? I doubt it immensely. It’s like asking someone to give up their religion. So, even if these events have scared ‘some leaders’, others would rather see the country burn than consider that they may have been wrong all along. Without effective, activist government, the social, economic and racial divisions that have fed the rise of Trump will continue largely unabated.

“In an ever-changing, incomprehensible world the masses had reached the point where they would, at the same time, believe everything and nothing, think that everything was possible and that nothing was true ….” – hannah arendt. (1951)

This is not about Trump losing the election. It’s about America losing it’s identity.

  • Trump is a sore loser and a complete idiot. He didn’t merely just cross a line, he incited a riot.

    [Y]ou’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength and you have to be strong…We’re going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue, … and we’re going to the Capitol, … and we’re going to try [to] give our Republicans…the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country.

    Incitement to riot on its own could land idiotic Trump in prison for a decade. Trespassing at the Capital is punishable by another 10 years in prison as well, and there could be other charges for the destruction of property, injuring Congressional staff, and more. And under the US’s federal law, Trump could face jail time for any violent crimes he “solicits, commands, induces, or otherwise endeavors to persuade such other person to engage in…blsa bla bla.

    He is likely going to pay dearly for this once he leaves office. He would also most probably be slapped with multiple lawsuits for his business matters and if the lawsuits don’t bankrupt him fast enough, he would probably end up in prison.

    .
    It’s the same CCP playbook over and over again, to demonize one group of people against another.
    The classic CCP mantra of “fight against the heaven, fight against the land, fight against the people”.

    The TianAnMen massacre, students were branded as rioters resulted in worsening of situation yet when before that, ZhaoZiYang already convinced the students to retreat peacefully.

    The same is for HK, CCP insited and implanted violence amidst peaceful protesters, demonized them as rioters to instigate unrest and hatred.

    The same tactics were used again in the BLM and antifa, encouraging looting amidst peaceful protests. There are video clips and messages that revealed that CCP agents participated directly.

    Now the storming of congress. It’s the same ploy again. Trump had been warned about this being hijacked by CCP and Antifa, but he is too naive to believe, being an american patriot, he stupidly thinks that the american democratic system could give him a fair election and outcome, even after repeated signs of rot in the tripartite. Just look at the corrupt media, very quick to call out in unison in realtime, suspiciously , at same time silencing Trump’s voice in social media to call for peace, to demonize him and his supporters. Yet these same corrupt media are silent on all the blatant cheatings and frauds in the election.

    Video clips, if you are lucky they have not been taken down by youtube or twitters, or you search hard enough, having shown how the woman was shot, how the security had let in the crowd, these are not usual. Search for them in Parlor and alternative sites.

    The evil Global Reset has begun.

    Trump is stupid and now finally he learned his lesson for offended China. He think US can bully China and so fight trade war with China. Now US economy in worst recession of America history and China economy still growing. His election also lost because their US voters are angry with Trump showing no respect of China who give America economy many business opportunity and money. There is a good history saying Trump never learn: anybody offend China shall die terribly 谁得罪中国,谁将不得好死!America newspapers, tv news, internet platforms and youtube all cooperate and stop reporting Trump news, Trump become a President got mouth cannot talk, even he talk also nobody can hear him say. China got much money, can do anything to any President of any country. Don’t think this is joke. Europe countries smart, they cooperate China to make world a safe place, free trade and democracy freedom for all global residents. That is also reason why Biden can win election since he promise cooperate with China. China already take care his son since his son appreciate Chinese culture and values. Trump after he is sacked from President office, he will got more problems because China and all Chinese people under the sky will not let him off. He got no where hide.

    I have a friend who told me there was no evidences to the fraud claim of election by Trump. When i asked him whether he saw the CCTV record in one of the public hearing? He said no time. Haha, human, what can i say more?
    And he continued to argue that it is all conspiracy theories with no evidences to the court and courts throwing out Trump’s cases. And i asked him, what evidences to have when the court was not even hearing the case for the evidences to be presented and recorded?

    Alas, most of us had not learned or understand (sufficiently) the rich cultural history of chinese art of espionage, social manipulation, and politics. Most who understand chinese culture or history (even the chinese themselves) were mostly taught to be a good citizen and be taught the great stuffs created by Chinese in their (human) history.

    Myself still learning new old things of China’s ancient teaching till today. And perhaps could never failed to surprise me and never complete.

    I would like to thank the writer for starting this topic on Trump.
    And indeed during Trump’s time we are witnessing all these ‘failure of democracy’, assault on democracy system and semingly ‘destroying democracy’

    I only have this highlight for the writer:

    When the house i bought is running down with rotten pillar and beam, i started to do repairs and renovation. I throw those rotten pillars and beams on my courtyard and you see load of trucks removing those failed pieces. My neighbours are telling you that ever since i bought this house, i am destroying it. Each day or two there were skeletons being dumped on trucks clearing the debris.

    I was rude, shouting at my neighbours to mind their own business. Police were call in and I was warned of my behaviour. City council start to fine me for throwing the rotten pillars as the house is registered as a heritage site while I produced all the necessary approvals obtained to dump and replace those failed parts.

    My neighbours start protesting at front of my house day and night. Bang on my door and throw stone on my glass, I made police reports and police did nothing.

    Now I called my gangs and relatives to my house and they were arrested for creating fear and threatening the community.

    End of story and the story does not end….

    mike: I would like to thank the writer for starting this topic on Trump.

    As for your case history, there isn’t enough details nor can these be published here, to be of assistance. As IMMENSE RISKS of my simplicity thoughts on bare bone information supplied, my suspicion is that you bought a “heritage” property, it is very expensive of renovation because of restriction of what can or cannot be done and how. In Down Under for example, the Town Council is very powerful of planning approval or refusal. The police might treat your case (broken glass) as “civil” unless you have security camera revealing vandalism.

    Justice sometime is crooked of failure. Law is not always moral.

    I got a friend in Sydney who faced similar situation as you. I advised her to take picture on her mobile of neighbor dumping renovation debris on her door step, including cutting from a tall tree in her front lawn (neighbor claims the root extends to his law, he can’t create a “fish pond”) so it was trepass on one count and VANDALISM TO PRIVATE PROPERTY (tree is grown by the previous owner) AND UNDER TOWN COUNCIL LAW CANNOT BE CUT DOWN WITHOUT PLANNING APPROVAL. (serious violation). The rascal neighbor is a renovation contractor brought in a crew of thugs, cut the tree and use a bulldozer to uproot it telling my PRC friend (new to Australia) that her tree intruded into his property (falling leaves and roots damaging his car park lawn etc but silent about no approval for tree cutting which only the owner can be the applicant).

    With the evidence, I advice my friend to report to TC and said she did not apply for tree cutting and the branches/roots were left on the street side kerb. She requested for an immediate inspection which the TC did. AND THE NEIGHBOR GOT INTO HOT HOT SOUP – immediate stop to all renovation work and a show cause notice of tree cutting plus damage claims for property damage from my friend.

    If my PRC friend didn’t contacted me to cry her woes, she would not know her rights. The Lebanese neighbor (lots of them are thuggish in Sydney, some collect social security in daytime as unemployed but working very hard at night in housebreaking) thought these new PRC/immigrant arrivals isn’t cognizant of the law or have access to advice.

    SO I AM A BIT WARY YOUR PURCHASE IS DUPED BY THE SELLER of a “heritage” property and you got bad neighbor maybe the reason why the previous owner sold out.

    Sorry for the bad news, @ Mike.

    There is no doubt that US decline is becoming more evident. And the divisions in the US are running along multiple lines; globalization, race, technology etc. This is a recipe for national decline.

    The stability that US had been able to maintain as the sole superpower despite its many mishaps cannot be replaced. And there is likely to be more regional conflicts, already military spending in our region had been growing in anticipation of US withdrawal and China’s expansion.

    Trump’s problem is that he had not been able to galvanize enough of the incumbent if corrupt Deep state to go along with him. The swamp is a mix of big business and career politicians. Trump bombastic character just rub people the wrong way. But he did beat Obama in a Gallup poll last December. https://news.gallup.com/poll/328193/donald-trump-michelle-obama-admired-2020.aspx

    This does not make him the best candidate for President. It shows however, that among democrats, they do not have a single popular leader, in fact; the left, radical left, the middle, have their own favorites, this points to an unwieldy US domestic policy going forward.

    While the group that supports Trump is more solidified. And will remain a powerful force.

    Ultimately, domestic policy is foreign policy, dont expect much to change. And underlying the US decline, akin to a growing major earthquake fault line, you have global supply chain bottlenecks, growing food insecurity, government bonds that are squeezing the fiscal position…..

    In Singapore, there are no hills to run to, we need an injection of new alternatives that PAP cannot provide. Incumbency is akin to growing roots in a particular way of doing things, too comfortable with the existing template….whether it is opposition, young start ups… hopefully we muddled through unscathed.

    Dear @ Oxygen

    Thank you for paying attention to the story of heritage house renovation.
    It was not mine. I have no intention to cause concern while i do know a number of ‘leb’ builders underhand methods in the real estate scene. In order not to stereotype certain community, it happens in all cultures.

    The story was a combination of actual events and some made up scenarios to image Trump’s era into a simple layman’s picture.

    And council (oz), some of them are corrupted too. Heard plenty stories about that.

    I am glad that you mentioned this above.
    Justice and Law is the minimum for peasants like me (and most people) to have faith with the system. If justice cannot play out fairly or seemingly to be played fairly, that is when the social fabric starts to tear. Long enough, the system will collapse.

    I trust no police. That’s my lesson learned when i was very young.
    I heard enough injustice to trust no legal system, it is for those who can afford. The story on ‘a pound of flesh’ is enough to teach me that law without moral is in the hand of butcher(s), and at times, the system itself is sufficient to rape and murder what’s left little in anyone’s soul.

    BK: The stability that US had been able to maintain as the sole superpower despite its many mishaps cannot be replaced. And there is likely to be more regional conflicts, already military spending in our region had been growing in anticipation of US withdrawal and China’s expansion.

    Despite the symbolism of the Capitol complex, the U.S. government in all its glory was captured by the wealthy a long time ago. For roughly the past 40 years, the U.S. government has embraced supply-side economics which has led to arguably the worst economic inequality in the advanced world, the shrinking of the once-great American middle class, and for most American workers the death of the once attainable American Dream. As a result, some of the worst social problems in the advanced world, culminating in Trump starting the tariff/trade barrier.

    This week’s tragic Capitol insurrection was merely one indicator of a democracy that has been dying for a long time: an inherent political bias in the domestic national security infrastructure. Political parties collapse when the world around them is changing but they refuse to accept the change and adopt to new realities. This is true of Communist, Socialists, Republicans, and Democrats. Until America or a disjointed European Union can come to some type of internal equilibrium of who and what they are in the World, and not allow the extreme stratification/concentration of wealth that is becoming characteristic of America in the 21st century.

    It is interesting to speculate what and who is US? But surely in historical terms, the Declaration of Independence is one of the few documents that elicit emotions of personal freedom. It is not about Kings, Popes or the glory of Communist Party or somebody else. The government is instituted by the people for their liberty and happiness. Who cares whether blacks or whites or donkeys wrote it…it gives us, the ordinary people unprecedented power.

    It was indeed revolutionary.

    But since WW1 and especially WW2, the emphasize had shifted away from individuals to “collective security” in the US. What was efficient in war, the galvanizing of national resources to war making had arguably created the Deep State that runs its own logic of profits, sinister deals and hegemony.

    But, without doubt, it also provided the world with US NGOs, many US citizens that work ceaselessly to help the poorer nations.

    Can China replace US in these critical areas? Is not about the many willing Chinese people, but whether the Communist Party that centralized its identity about its leader, allow the natural derring-do of its people to lead.

    My opinion is China must face up to its many contradictions within the decade, and I will look at how the more global China biz can change the political environment.

    No historical events and their conclusions should hold true of all people and at all times. Declaration of Independence and Constitution are no exceptions. For otherwise, they would not be considered historical, rather they would be considered religious documents.

    There are certainly ways for Americans to treat people with equality while protecting the security of the nation. Only fear and apathy will prevent this from happening, just as fear and apathy denied rights to many immigrants in the past. Immigration reform must allow for both security and equality, so that good people have a chance to live the American dream,

    The late Justice Marshall had called the original text of the Constitution “defective”and so is the Declaration of Independence. These two documents are defective because they need improved interpretations and understanding with advanced time and circumstances. Slavery was the social norm and systemic base in the agricultural society of the U.S.in the 18-19th century before industrialization. When entering industrial age, the agricultural slavery system had to be transformed into the newly established industrial capitalist system of wage slavery. Although both are of slavery nature, the wage slavery is much more advanced and perhaps also more cruel than the agricultural slavery of which the masters would guarantee slaves for livelihood, if not for life, at least for major part of their lives in servitude. The two documents, therefore, need to be updated to understand as the slavery system actually means wage rather than personal enslavement.

    There are two countervailing currents that makes the Chinese system maddeningly complex. On the one hand, the Chinese state is built upon the edifice of the Chinese Communist Party, in effect there is no real distinction between the state and the party. The party is enormous with more than eighty million members. So the power and patronage systems of the party permeates Chinese society.

    On the other hand, China is now a global society. It is not like North Korea, a hermit state with an enslaved population. The Chinese are not enslaved. They communicate with the world and through various technological mediums with themselves. Their interests and Chinese social and cultural modernity runs against the edifice of the state. The best example we have of this was the violent Hong Kong student revolt which was partially successful in rolling back state power.

    The freedom of Chinese culture as a global phenomena will one day, but certainly one day will dismantle the conflicted edifice of the communist party. It will happen. This how I see the difference between “socialism with Chinese characteristics” and “capitalism with American characteristics”:

    In China the government directs the capitalists; In the USA the capitalists direct the government.

    …Contd

    The history of human civilization shows that kings and empires followed four type of models based on four prominent human traits – meritocracy, autocracy, mercantilism, and Democracy (people power).

    The challenge of Chinese communist rule, it is trying to combine meritocracy, muscle power and mercantilism to create a harmonious society. The ethical values of Confucius and mercantile values of untruthfulness and deceit can not coexist. Current problem of China, stealing of technology, trade manipulation and shadow banking are the signs of this contradiction. Chinese Communist Party need to look deeply into these contradictions. Only democracy have the openness and institutions to resolve these contradictions through the involvement of all forces in the society.

    At this moment in time, the nationalist doctrine in China is driven by Xi’s desire to reestablish an ideology hegemony over the state. Whether or not it will work remains to be seen. In fact, the argument that the CCP is necessary to China’s current development may not be entirely spurious, but it is also clear that capitalism and freedom have no necessary connection.

    In the 1980′s the CCP opened up the economy to allow privately owned companies to compete, and if successful enrich their owners. However, that ascribes the formation of capitalist enterprises to urban intellectuals. Although this is true to an extent, it glosses over the fact that many of the largest private companies in China are owned by the spouses and children of members of the Politburo and Central Committee of the CCP, if not those Party Leaders themselves. They pay lip-service to Marxism-Leninism-Mao Ze Dong Thought, but the leaders of the CCP are in fact the leaders of China’s capitalist class. In some cases they even imitate the leaders of the United States capitalist class by sending their children to Harvard and other Ivy League universities. Their ideology emphasizes a national chauvinistic version of patriotism and loyalty to an authoritarian government.

    The CCP has abandoned its historic claim to be the vanguard of the struggle of workers and peasants against the remnants of the capitalist and landlord classes. There is no doubt the CCP deserves credit for leading hundreds of millions of people out of poverty and near poverty. There is also no doubt that the Chinese Communist Party is Communist in name only.

    Failed ideologies may still have many adherents who cannot see beyond their indoctrination. It is true in China; it is true in the US.

  • CCP is crony capitalism now:

    Can’t talk about the CCP of the 1980s and the resurrection of the People’s Republic of China enterprise without mentioning the great market-reform initiatives of master statesman Deng Xiaoping can we? I remember we young NS army guys in those years were most relieved that such a sound personality had taken charge in China.

    Mao and the Gang of Four had brought Chinese civilisation down to its knees for so long a time.

    @ SojouRner

    You are right of this observation.

    “The CCP has abandoned its historic claim to be the vanguard of the struggle of workers and peasants against the remnants of the capitalist and landlord classes. There is no doubt the CCP deserves credit for leading hundreds of millions of people out of poverty and near poverty. There is also no doubt that the Chinese Communist Party is Communist in name only.”

    Famous quote from late Chairman Mao Zedong: The masses’ eyes are discerning. We would like to share it with all those taking public hearings as cosmetic.

    Just to add some of my opinion(s)…

    quote:
    … ethical values of Confucius …

    Confucius is Art Of Elitism – and i think this is a fair remark. I welcome anyone to challenge me that it is otherwise. Probably this is the earliest form of socialism i can think of. It does not want to rule the peasants, peasants are just different social class that only fit for the rulers to manage. People in confucius learning see themselves a class above rulers. Confucius,a created elite class was formally established by Mr Kong for rulers to seek advice from. For most of us,do not mistaken again, confucius was meant two ways, how royals should behaved and how peasants were to be ruled.

    —-

    As for CCP, to me they are none but thugs in gentleman’s clothes. Did they really lead thousands of millions out of poverty (or near)? You people have been very generous to provide such credits to the CCP. Its either naive or lazily blind to history.

    Just let me ask this : if they (CCP) did, when?

    @ oxy
    Exactly, bro
    Prof MacFarquhar’s book with Michael Schoenhals, “Mao’s Last Revolution” is IMO the best on the Cultural Revolution. Great concise summary of Mao’s career – for some reason not mentioning that 30 million people died as a result of farm collectivization, misreporting of production and the famine that followed, and the horrors of the Cultural Revolution, as covered in Prof MacFarquhar’s book.

    Mao exploited Chinese peasants and believed in “power coming from the gun barrels”, which led to Mao’s success. The high esteem for rural peasants is disingenuous; it’s nothing more than a charismatic leader capitalizing on the suffering of an ignorant, albeit an exploited, class.

    Just let me ask this : if they (CCP) did, when?

    Yes, CCP are thugs in gentleman’s clothes.
    Y2013, we sold 5 specialized devices (with 1 years free maintenance contract) to a customer in Cina.
    Surprisingly, they did not contact us for maintenance or buy spare parts since then.
    Our sales manger, through his contact, told us that the 5 devices were re-sell to another party who immediately delivered to a military base in Guangzhou.
    What the F*…in short, their PLA must have dismantled the 5 devices into pieces and copied all the technology, clone it and brand it a Cina brand.

    So, to answer your question when?

    My answer, the day they (CCP) start stealing help pull its people out of poverty.

    It is the same as our ex colonial master who goes round colonizing land and steal native treasure. (the Ang Mo even have the audacity to display the stolen treasure in Buckingham palace)

    CCP and UK are both thugs in gentleman’s clothes.

    The HK demonstrations and cracked down put a decisive end to any fantasies on rising China under CCP rule. The evil spectre of communism must not be allowed to rule humanity. Other than those who suffered under the CCP regime, no one in sillipore understood the evil of communism better than LKY.
