There have been a number of stories in recent weeks suggesting that Australia is falling into China’s Sphere of Influence. For example, from the Australian Broadcasting Company:

Prominent Australian academic says he has been silenced by Chinese Government
By Defence reporter Andrew Greene
Updated 13 Nov 2017, 1:07am

A leading Australian publisher claims the threat of Chinese Government retaliation is the reason it cancelled plans to print a book which further exposes Beijing’s influence on Federal Parliament and other parts of society.

Prominent Charles Sturt University academic Clive Hamilton said Allen & Unwin was ready to publish his manuscript Silent Invasion, but last week informed him it could no longer proceed because it was worried about defamation action.

“Allen & Unwin said that they were worried about retaliation from Beijing through a number of possible avenues including legal threats, orchestrated by Beijing, and they decided it was too big a risk and so therefore pulled the plug and returned the rights to me,” Professor Hamilton said.

Silent Invasion closely examines the Chinese Communist Party’s activities in Australia, and Professor Hamilton said it had already been significantly edited by lawyers.

    I would hope it means one Canadian citizen moves to China for every Chinese citizen that moves to Canada.

    But it probably means China will pay for Canadian natural resources with Chinese emigrants.

    It's called the ANZUS treaty. Basically Australia can't defend itself against any serious foe so the deal is we support every American war, even the unpopular ones like Vietnam and Iraq, and in return America will save our bacon if ever we are seriously threatened.

    Personally, I wish we'd developed a nuclear deterrent like a serious country and gone independent.

  9. Will someone please explain to yours truly, now a confirmed illiterate sucker, why Australia would allow foreign interests to threaten an Australian publisher to the point that they don’t publish? What the hell is going on? Is some Chinese front posing as a private party in Australia so it can use the courts to censor criticism of China by pretending to file private lawsuits of libel, slander or whatever?

    China is our biggest problem. Someday those of us rubes who have been screaming this will say “I told you so” before we go to our graves.

    Glowing articles here about how great and successful China is do not impress us, because we are not under the illusion that the global game is not zero sum. It IS a zero sum game, and we are headed for Chinese domination, bankrolled and allowed by us.

    More people, especially “public intellectuals,” need to spend time in nature. Go out into the wilderness alone and sleep on the ground. Watch life. It is kill or be killed. Eat or be eaten.

    Wake up and smell the green tea. Stand up to China.

    Agree about public intellectuals needing to spend some time sleeping on the ground in nature.

    The Globalists do believe that life is not a zero-sum game. For them, everyone wins when each does just the one thing he does best. If you're good at growing coffee, then don't try to make engine blocks.

    There's a problem with this scheme though and that it is desirable in any particular society or economy for there to be a niche for the type of precise thinking and doing that goes into making engine blocks. Understanding mining, refining, milling, machining, polishing etc. inculcates habits of mind that cannot be acquired except through the doing of them. Globalist economists don't appreciate this because they've never done it; they make models and crunch numbers.

    There is a tremendous amount of wisdom that has accumulated in manufacturing that is revealed only to the practitioner. The repertoire of technical skills used to create a technical society implicitly creates a bank or repository of higher mental skills. The thinking imposes itself on the mind of the doer. In any society there needs to be a class of technicians who are adept in this kind of thinking and they become so only by the doing. Precision is an acquired habit.

    The wisdom implicit in the doing only makes itself obvious to the doer, which is why globalist economists miss it. They design a world of perfect exchange, of perfect division of labor. This consigns certain players to inferior roles forever. Exporters of commodities or farm products will never master the higher order habits of mind or rediscover for themselves the fabulous amount of wisdom that is embedded in manufacturing. And this is a real loss. As Marx observed, it is to be less than human. Humans are makers and the mode of production does determine mindset.

    The reality is that Australia has been falling into the CHinese sphere of influence for a long time.

    Before I moved to Asia, I conceived of Australia as a kind of English diaspora, but that is not how the Australians I have met see themselves. One guy I met knows Japanese because he was required to take an Asian language in secondary school. Image that in the US--your kids are required to learn Mandarin or Japanese to graduate from HS. This is not your father's Commonwealth!

    To be honest, the title of Mark Steyn's book America Alone had it right. Australia is more Pacific Rim/Chinese Greater Co-Prosperity Sphere than it is Commonwealth. Canada is the SJW sink of the Anglosphere. India, Malaysia, Burma, and the rest of SE Asia along with South Africa have reverted, and the UK itself is fucked in the head.

    You're presupposing that it's just a matter of a course correction for our elites. It's not the case. Across all Western nations the elites are all on the same page - they are want to eradicate the white race and culture.

    The culture and education system they arose out of has been rotting away for decades now and we're seeing the fruit of it. You could see signs of it even during the Cold War and earlier.

    C.S. Lewis saw the beginnings of it in his time, he wrote about it in "The Abolition of Man". Same with Chesterton. Mumford knew our culture had serious things wrong with it as well.

    It's all rather unique in historical terms. Traditionally the elites are big into self-preservation and not destroying the very system that keeps them in power. But ours is doing just that. We even see it with the monied class that has been infected with the same thinking.

    Their official organs like The Economist, NYT, WSJ, WaPo, etc. Don't even hide the fact they want whitey dead and gone.

    There is no fix outside of giving the elite the boot and tha't can't be done without violence.
    , @Duke of Qin
    Because it's not true. The same guy claiming persecution is a perpetual wolf crier who was claiming he was being silenced a decade ago ago.

    The truth of the matter is, the Chinese are extremely mal-adapt at producing agitprop that is palatable towards Western tastes and are entirely incapable of subverting Westerners except the rare individual for sale or subject to Soviet style Compramat. Ever heard of the Three Represents or a Moderately Prosperous Society? Yeah, that's why Chinese Communist propaganda doesn't work.

    The Chinese party is directing influence towards Australia, Canada, and the US but it isn't towards subverting your systems and your people, but rather it is in the form of counter-intelligence. It is entirely directed towards Chinese student populations living abroad, the overwhelming majority of whom now return to China, to counter their subversion by Western forces. That is all efforts are directed primarily at other Chinese to prevent them from being converted into Western Liberals at Western universities the same way they undermine White Western students.

    "Makes one wonder why Nixon was so hell-bent on opening up China"
     
    Nixon had been elected on ending US involvement in Vietnam "with honor", but North Vietnam had no intention of giving up South Vietnam, so they weren't going to agree to US "honor" ... unless Nixon could do an end run around the North Vietnamese government to their sponsors in the Chinese government, replacing China's interest in a low-value provincial war with a high-value interest in bilateral superpower relations. Plus, he blindsided the Soviet Union and took a chunk of the bloc out of the Communist Bloc.

    In other words, it was that oft described but rarely seen thing, a real diplomatic coup. North Vietnam had to agree to American terms (at least for a while), the Soviet Union suddenly looked isolated, and Nixon outflanked his domestic and foreign critics, all even though American military and cultural power was cratering. It was the greatest diplomatic feat in recent history.

    That said, it was neither necessary nor inevitable that the US should de-industrialize to China's benefit afterward. That was the strange perversity of the following decades.

    , @Verymuchalive
    As Pat Buchanan has often written, after the end of the Cold War, America had the opportunity to return to sensible Defence, Foreign and Economic policies. Nato would be dissolved, foreign commitments drastically reduced and a mercantilist, America First economic policy emplaced.
    None of these were ever done. In fact, the opposite was done.
    Now, America is an economically hollowed out Great Power, like Spain in the late C17th. Unlike Spain, it has no Peruvian or Mexican silver mines to enable it to meet its foreign debts. Economic collapse beckons.
    For places like Australia, the choice is obvious. Start looking after its own interests, as America should have done. The alternative - increasing Chinese interference in Australian internal affairs - will not be in any way appealing.

  20. Clive Hamilton is political. He’s written something like ten books about climate change as the #1 issue in the world, or with a small-is-beautiful theme (titles like “Growth Fetish” and “Affluenza”). He chaired his own progressive think tank, he ran for office as a Green Party candidate.

    So this isn’t a case of a meek academic unexpectedly running afoul of Beijing censorship. This is a self-styled public intellectual who decided to take on the issue of Chinese influence in Australia. It’s very very likely that he is working with people in the intelligence agencies who want to raise the alarm.

    A radical and traditionally antiwar party like the Greens might seem an unlikely bedfellow for the national security agencies, but there is an Australian precedent, the career of Andrew Wilkie, who was our version of an Iraq War intelligence whistleblower, and who was a federal MP for the Greens for several years, before becoming an independent.

    It is unclear to me how much the Greens will make this an issue going forward, or how it will fit into their worldview, but it is an issue that is rising in salience right across the political spectrum, though no-one seems to have anything like a clear strategic attitude towards Australia’s relationship with China.

    "I will be happy to live under Chinese overlords because they will turn their focus on survival !"

    Their own survival. From talking to mainland Chinese I get the impression they are quite fond of white Western Civilisation and what it has brought to the world, they certainly have no desire to destroy it. But they'll only seek to preserve it to the extent it serves their own interests.

    At very best the Chinese may see European civilisation as the Romans saw Greek civilisation, and help preserve a theme park version. But they won't do so to detriment of their own interests, so if alliance with the cultural Marxists or the Jihadis serves their interests then that's what they'll do.

    Its not quite that simple. The Communist Party was actually split between "liberals" and "conservatives" for lack of a better word during the 1990s and 2000s: liberals favored greater engagement and democracy. They still exist though they are definitely the losing faction.

    Since the 2010s, though, the conservative faction has definitely been on an upswing and a large part of that was the perception that liberal democracy has failed to deliver on its promise, so what exactly makes it such a perfect model to emulate?

    As far as the "people" are concerned, so as long as their incomes keep going up and life is pretty safe, none of this particularly matters. There may be demographic challenges going forward, etc, but day to day, those are not the things which the population cares about.

    Unfortunately, the Chinese are nationalists at home and globalists abroad. If western countries put restrictions and tariffs on Chinese goods, or restrictions on Chinese immigration, the Chinese diaspora soon starts squealing about white ethnocentrism. Only whites promote globalism at home and abroad.

    Here is something to chew on. China is currently the most populous nation with 1.3 billion people. In theory if they sent 325 million people to the USA, 35 million to Canada, 23 million to Australia and 4.5 million to New Zealand, the Chinese would comprise 50% of the population of the aforementioned nations, and China would still be the second most populous nation in the world with over 900 million people easily topping the USA which would come in third place with 650 million after the Chinese additions.

    Actually they wouldn't have to send those exact amounts because all of those nations already have signficant Chinese presence. But one gets the point. There are enough Chinese to demographically swamp the Anglo New World.

    The Greens are the natural enemy of China since the latter views Australia as one giant open-air coal mine, lumber yard, and grain harvest area. Yeah, the Greens are not so down on commodity exports to China, particularly since they make their hated enemies, miners and ranchers, quite rich.

    As for China, it is filled with religion. Just not one Westerners easily recognize. The Taipeng Rebellion killed 60 million people in war fought with muskets. As the main leader claimed to be the younger brother of Jesus Christ, and then come to think of it, no he WAS Jesus Christ. Come to take over from the Emperor. China’s leaders are terrified of cults, religions, and all sorts of superstitions as they have a nasty habit of fomenting rebellion in the provinces. China’s religions tend to be more civic minded, that does not make them any less dangerous. Falun Gong generates real fear among China’s leaders, still. China is filled with angry young dudes who think a cult leader is just the thing to take over.

    China has many problems, not the least of which is constant rebellions as it is simply too big to administer by even the most able and ruthless leader for long. The Communist Party has less control than people think making its domestic hand much weaker. They see how quickly Gorby fell and are terrified of losing military support or facing some mass upheaval that by sheer numbers overwhelms even the security services and military. This makes them more not less dangerous as they have to constantly play the nationalist card as the economy slows down, men get angry at the sex imbalance and female hypergamy, and the crime and corruption inherent in giant empire create even more misery as employment slows down and companies either become reliant on state support or chase ever cheaper wages abroad.

    Chinese domination of Australia seems fairly inevitable at current trajectories, around 5% of the population is already Chinese and with just 3.5m more people, Chinese would form 20% of the population and due to their higher IQ would likely become a dominant minority, especially considering the fairly low regard for intellectual endeavor which exists among Anglo Australians.

    Will someone please explain to yours truly, now a confirmed illiterate sucker, why Australia would allow foreign interests to threaten an Australian publisher to the point that they don't publish? What the hell is going on? Is some Chinese front posing as a private party in Australia so it can use the courts to censor criticism of China by pretending to file private lawsuits of libel, slander or whatever?

    China is our biggest problem. Someday those of us rubes who have been screaming this will say "I told you so" before we go to our graves.

    Glowing articles here about how great and successful China is do not impress us, because we are not under the illusion that the global game is not zero sum. It IS a zero sum game, and we are headed for Chinese domination, bankrolled and allowed by us.

    More people, especially "public intellectuals," need to spend time in nature. Go out into the wilderness alone and sleep on the ground. Watch life. It is kill or be killed. Eat or be eaten.

    Wake up and smell the green tea. Stand up to China.

    Agree about public intellectuals needing to spend some time sleeping on the ground in nature.

    The Globalists do believe that life is not a zero-sum game. For them, everyone wins when each does just the one thing he does best. If you’re good at growing coffee, then don’t try to make engine blocks.

    There’s a problem with this scheme though and that it is desirable in any particular society or economy for there to be a niche for the type of precise thinking and doing that goes into making engine blocks. Understanding mining, refining, milling, machining, polishing etc. inculcates habits of mind that cannot be acquired except through the doing of them. Globalist economists don’t appreciate this because they’ve never done it; they make models and crunch numbers.

    There is a tremendous amount of wisdom that has accumulated in manufacturing that is revealed only to the practitioner. The repertoire of technical skills used to create a technical society implicitly creates a bank or repository of higher mental skills. The thinking imposes itself on the mind of the doer. In any society there needs to be a class of technicians who are adept in this kind of thinking and they become so only by the doing. Precision is an acquired habit.

    The wisdom implicit in the doing only makes itself obvious to the doer, which is why globalist economists miss it. They design a world of perfect exchange, of perfect division of labor. This consigns certain players to inferior roles forever. Exporters of commodities or farm products will never master the higher order habits of mind or rediscover for themselves the fabulous amount of wisdom that is embedded in manufacturing. And this is a real loss. As Marx observed, it is to be less than human. Humans are makers and the mode of production does determine mindset.

  36. I read a few years ago that overseas Chinese dominate the financial sector in Australia much as New York Jews dominate the financial sector in the USA; any Australians know if this is true?

    With overseas Chinese dominating the commanding heights of the Australian economy and Chinese companies/State buying up resource-extraction control at the other end, it certainly seems plausible that China is coming to dominate Australia. Chinese lack of verbal loquacity may make this less destructive than the American experience; also China seeks stability which tends to be a good thing compared to invade the world/invite the world. But colonial domination certainly tends to give rise to dissatisfaction among the natives – qv the British in India or Chinese in Malaysia; and unlike US Jews the Chinese lack the verbal loquacity to keep a dampener on that through propaganda.

    Their own survival. From talking to mainland Chinese I get the impression they are quite fond of white Western Civilisation and what it has brought to the world, they certainly have no desire to destroy it. But they’ll only seek to preserve it to the extent it serves their own interests.

    At very best the Chinese may see European civilisation as the Romans saw Greek civilisation, and help preserve a theme park version. But they won’t do so to detriment of their own interests, so if alliance with the cultural Marxists or the Jihadis serves their interests then that’s what they’ll do.

    The overseas Chinese in South East Asia are a very benign elite, they haven't formed a hostile cultural elite in Southeast Asian countries motivated by historical grievances against the people and culture of their hosts. For example, despite their economic dominance, the Chinese have not been concerned with restrictions on their citizenship rights, which have been common in Southeast Asia. Whereas the Chinese have reacted rather passively to such restrictions, Jews have reacted to any manifestation of anti-Jewish attitudes or behavior with an all-out effort at eradication. Indeed, we have seen that the mainstream Jewish attitude is that even trivial manifestations of anti-Jewish attitudes and behavior must not be ignored because they can and will lead to mass murder. Not only have the Chinese not attempted to remove public displays of symbols of Indonesian nationalism and religion, they have not seriously attempted to change laws in place since the 1960s mandating that there be no public displays of Chinese culture. I would rather have our own elite but shifting to a Chinese elite seems an improvement from where we are.

    It’s called the ANZUS treaty. Basically Australia can’t defend itself against any serious foe so the deal is we support every American war, even the unpopular ones like Vietnam and Iraq, and in return America will save our bacon if ever we are seriously threatened.

    Clive Hamilton is political. He's written something like ten books about climate change as the #1 issue in the world, or with a small-is-beautiful theme (titles like "Growth Fetish" and "Affluenza"). He chaired his own progressive think tank, he ran for office as a Green Party candidate.

    So this isn't a case of a meek academic unexpectedly running afoul of Beijing censorship. This is a self-styled public intellectual who decided to take on the issue of Chinese influence in Australia. It's very very likely that he is working with people in the intelligence agencies who want to raise the alarm.

    A radical and traditionally antiwar party like the Greens might seem an unlikely bedfellow for the national security agencies, but there is an Australian precedent, the career of Andrew Wilkie, who was our version of an Iraq War intelligence whistleblower, and who was a federal MP for the Greens for several years, before becoming an independent.

    It is unclear to me how much the Greens will make this an issue going forward, or how it will fit into their worldview, but it is an issue that is rising in salience right across the political spectrum, though no-one seems to have anything like a clear strategic attitude towards Australia's relationship with China.

    The other Clive, Clive Palmer, just won his big court case against the Chinese government. Maybe he can save us! Remember when he accused Rupert Murdoch’s then wife Wendy Deng of being a Chinese spy? Lol. Clive Palmer and Pauline Hanson should form an alliance to defend Australia against the New Yellow Peril.

    The Chinese are known as the Jews of Southeast Asia. On the surface they are very much like the Jews with much success in commerce and educational attainment, they are also known to be clever, cunning and dishonest like the Jews. But they also differ from the Jews in some very important ways:

    First, unlike the Jews who are power hungry the Chinese are not into political power. Case in point the 60 years of racial discrimination they suffered as a racial minority in Malaysia despite being the economic engine of that country. There are no widespread protests, no violence. They simply keep their heads down and work harder. Per Forbes of the top 10 richest people in Malaysia, 9 are of Chinese descent, despite blatant discrimination in every sphere and monopoly of natural resources like oil by the Malay majority who win every election with gerrymandering and massive corruption. In Thailand, the 12% Chinese changed their names, blended in and disappeared, as they do in the Philippines and Indonesia. The rule in SEA is the higher the proportion of Chinese as a minority, the richer the country. However, despite being rich and successful and Southeast Asia, they have no political power in any of those countries except Singapore where they form the majority, and that is the most successful country in SEA because Lee Kuan Yew governed with pragmatism as opposed to ideology.

    Second, the Chinese are pragmatic to a fault which means they are less likely to buy into this diversity = strength propaganda. Many Chinese I've met have a disdain for blacks whom they think are less intelligent, slothful and crime prone, and they hold the same low regard for the Mexicans except they are harder working. China has never invaded another country and the Chinese are not interested in interfering in everyone else's politics going for regime change etc. to benefit themselves. They just want to do business with whoever's in charge.

    Third, they are not narcissistic and vindictive like the Jews. In theory they hate the Japanese but you'd be surprised how many Chinese actually live in Japan, and I've met more Japanese/Chinese-American couples in the west coast than I care to count.

    Most Chinese-American kids major in STEM and have no time for SJW protests on campus. The Asian kids who protest on campus tend to be Filipinos or Indians. Chinese are natural allies of the Republican party as they are conservative and pragmatic. There are a few cucks out there but almost all are products of our elite schools. Ted Lieu (D) of CA is one, born in Taiwan, graduated from Stanford. Another is Theodore Chuang, the judge in MD who blocked Trump's Muslim ban, went to Harvard. Then there's Derrick Watson, despite the name, looks Asian, the HI judge who blocked Trump's travel ban, more than once -- another Harvard educated Kool-Aid drinking cuck.

    The best thing that could happen is to stop the chain migration of Asians aka Silent Invasion of the US and assimilate those already here. It would make them less likely to support the shenanigans of the Chinese Communist government. The next best thing that could happen is to have our elite schools continue to discriminate against Asian-Americans. We don't need more Harvard/Stanford educated Asian cucks helping the Jews run the country to the ground. Jeff Sessions' DOJ investigation of Harvard's admission bias is a mistake. We want fewer Asians educated by the Traitorous Eight, not more.

    , @PV van der Byl
    "Not been concerned with restrictions on their citizenship rights"?

    "...reacted passively.."?

    Well, not quite.

    Malaysian Chinese have always resented the Bumiputra policies strongly. They vote for what are essentially ethnic Chinese political parties and are no more than tiny minorities within the ethnic Malay political parties that have ruled the country for nearly seventy years.

    Yes, it's true that the richest Malaysian citizens (e.g. Robert Kwok) are ethnic Chinese but, such people succeed under the protection of ethnic Malay politicians. The Chinese have markedly higher IQs and academic achievement than the ethnic Malays. Chinese success has nothing to do with Malay goodwill.

    There may have been times when the Chinese thought they had a shot at either real power or at least a piece of it. The Malaya Communist Party that fought an ultimately unsuccessful guerilla war against the government and British Army in tbe 1940s and 1950s was overwhelimngly ethnic Chinese, probably more than 90%.

    When opposition political parties, including the ethnic Chinese ones, did well in the May 1969 elections, several days of anti-Chinese rioting followed. Hundreds of Chinese were killed.

    At this point, Malaysian Chinese are simply resigned to political powerlessness and react with low birthrates and high emigration, particularly among the educated young.

    The situation in neighboring Indonesia is broadly similar.
    , @Altai
    But how much of that is due to the local population not being shy in showing their contempt to (The massacres in 1999 in Indonesia being the impetus for the growth of the Chinese communities in New Zealand) them and having legal discrimination being accepted as normal, not unlike Jews in many medieval European countries. Actually not unlike whites in post 94 South Africa.

    The organised Chinese community in Canada is beginning to behave in a very different manner with a host population that is sapped of confidence and which has no push-back.

    Which reminds me that a great number of ethnic Chinese in Australia -probably still a majority -come from the South East Asian Chinese diaspora rather than the PRC with Malaysia the top contributor . Many are very Anglo Western in their tastes . There are a lot of Derb style couplings .

    Makes one wonder why Nixon was so hell-bent on opening up China, and then our leadership class opened up our industrial base in the 1990s to hand over factories all for some Wal-Mart trinkets. They just bent right over, didn't they!

    “Makes one wonder why Nixon was so hell-bent on opening up China”

    Nixon had been elected on ending US involvement in Vietnam “with honor”, but North Vietnam had no intention of giving up South Vietnam, so they weren’t going to agree to US “honor” … unless Nixon could do an end run around the North Vietnamese government to their sponsors in the Chinese government, replacing China’s interest in a low-value provincial war with a high-value interest in bilateral superpower relations. Plus, he blindsided the Soviet Union and took a chunk of the bloc out of the Communist Bloc.

    In other words, it was that oft described but rarely seen thing, a real diplomatic coup. North Vietnam had to agree to American terms (at least for a while), the Soviet Union suddenly looked isolated, and Nixon outflanked his domestic and foreign critics, all even though American military and cultural power was cratering. It was the greatest diplomatic feat in recent history.

    That said, it was neither necessary nor inevitable that the US should de-industrialize to China’s benefit afterward. That was the strange perversity of the following decades.

    Australian libel laws are much more restrictive than their US counterparts. Australian publishers are small fry, catering to a small market, and are thus vulnerable to expensive lawsuits.

    Things like this are going on, slowly and in the dark, while our supposed "intelligence community" and "national security establishment" work themselves into an onanistic lather over Russia buying Facebook ads.

    Which leads one to wonder... What are the chances Red China has influence inside the Deep State, the parties, Congress, etc., to keep the focus on Russia? Did everyone forget the Clintons' Chinese connections from 20 years ago? (Dirty campaign cash, followed by basically all of the U.S. nuclear and missile secrets walking out the door.)

    I don’t think it’s impossible that the Chinese are encouraging the Russia stupidity.

    The Greens are the natural enemy of China since the latter views Australia as one giant open-air coal mine, lumber yard, and grain harvest area. Yeah, the Greens are not so down on commodity exports to China, particularly since they make their hated enemies, miners and ranchers, quite rich.

    As for China, it is filled with religion. Just not one Westerners easily recognize. The Taipeng Rebellion killed 60 million people in war fought with muskets. As the main leader claimed to be the younger brother of Jesus Christ, and then come to think of it, no he WAS Jesus Christ. Come to take over from the Emperor. China's leaders are terrified of cults, religions, and all sorts of superstitions as they have a nasty habit of fomenting rebellion in the provinces. China's religions tend to be more civic minded, that does not make them any less dangerous. Falun Gong generates real fear among China's leaders, still. China is filled with angry young dudes who think a cult leader is just the thing to take over.

    China has many problems, not the least of which is constant rebellions as it is simply too big to administer by even the most able and ruthless leader for long. The Communist Party has less control than people think making its domestic hand much weaker. They see how quickly Gorby fell and are terrified of losing military support or facing some mass upheaval that by sheer numbers overwhelms even the security services and military. This makes them more not less dangerous as they have to constantly play the nationalist card as the economy slows down, men get angry at the sex imbalance and female hypergamy, and the crime and corruption inherent in giant empire create even more misery as employment slows down and companies either become reliant on state support or chase ever cheaper wages abroad.

    The Greens are the natural enemy of China since the latter views Australia as one giant open-air coal mine, lumber yard, and grain harvest area.

    The Greens are for sale to the highest bidder, inevitably the Chinese.
    They’ve done quite well in the Queensland Election held today [25th.], delivering a massive victory to the Chinese owned ALP.

    I read a few years ago that overseas Chinese dominate the financial sector in Australia much as New York Jews dominate the financial sector in the USA; any Australians know if this is true?

    With overseas Chinese dominating the commanding heights of the Australian economy and Chinese companies/State buying up resource-extraction control at the other end, it certainly seems plausible that China is coming to dominate Australia. Chinese lack of verbal loquacity may make this less destructive than the American experience; also China seeks stability which tends to be a good thing compared to invade the world/invite the world. But colonial domination certainly tends to give rise to dissatisfaction among the natives - qv the British in India or Chinese in Malaysia; and unlike US Jews the Chinese lack the verbal loquacity to keep a dampener on that through propaganda.

    I read a few years ago that overseas Chinese dominate the financial sector in Australia much as New York Jews dominate the financial sector in the USA; any Australians know if this is true?

    On the other hand, China is working to lift more and more of its population from the underclass to the middle class and we are doing the opposite. Add in our gargantuan public debt and the increasingly large share of our economy that goes to servicing that debt and just paying entitlements, and they don’t have to do anything other than sit idly by while we strangle what is and could remain the strongest economy in the world.

One guy I met knows Japanese because he was required to take an Asian language in secondary school. Image that in the US–your kids are required to learn Mandarin or Japanese to graduate from HS. This is not your father’s Commonwealth!

    To be honest, the title of Mark Steyn’s book America Alone had it right. Australia is more Pacific Rim/Chinese Greater Co-Prosperity Sphere than it is Commonwealth. Canada is the SJW sink of the Anglosphere. India, Malaysia, Burma, and the rest of SE Asia along with South Africa have reverted, and the UK itself is fucked in the head.

    Let me go out on a limb and make a wild prediction. I predict the Chinese economy will stall if not fall apart in the coming decade. It will be even worse than what happened with Japan. Why will it happen? Because China’s huge banking system is state controlled. Decisions on the allocation of capital resources are made politically, not on the basis of return on investment. At the same time the Chinese people are forced to put most of their life savings into those state owned institutions, which then loan them out to build gigantic freeway systems, new cities from scratch, and, going forward, the One Belt, One Road project across Asia (gotta keep those steel mills and concrete plants running and an all those surplus, unmarriageable males working). As the population begins to rapidly age, retirees will begin to withdraw those life savings upon which they were depending in old age, now that they can no longer depend on their one child for care. But that money in the bank won’t be there. Instead banks will be ordered to print banknotes instead. Massive inflation and unemployment will ensue, and perhaps war. At which point that One Belt, One Road project may come in handy for purposes of invasion.

    Shorter version: Hayek was fundamentally correct when he said a price system is essentially an information system whose function is to coordinate supply and demand in a modern, complex, industrial economy, which is particularly necessary in a country as immense as China. The Chinese Communist Party is at the controls and flying blind. There will be hell to pay.

    US leadership was convinced that Chinese would become mass consumers and a consumer-oriented culture...in the 60's. - Wrong - they are nothing like Americans or Europeans.

    Chinese culture is insular, silent, ancient, and resilient, and extremely productive and lastly, nationalistic. Even after the 20th century, the Chinese people are not convinced that the crap that the democracies we offer, are better. No, they look down on us all. They look down on all the degeneracy of the last 35 years; the PC crap, the stuff the NYT prints daily...makes them laugh at us even more, every fracking day. China will take over...and, it should be a relief to many people who claim to be atheists. Finally, IQ wins; religion is for idiots; and wars over religious differences are declared stupid, wasteful of money, and morally, well, just dumb, pointless, money losers. I will be happy to live under Chinese overlords because they will turn their focus on survival ! :) Most East Asians ignore God..so Christianity, Judeaism, and Muslim beliefs are irrelevant.

    At least Mr Hamilton is ‘free to go’.

    An Australian Rio Tinto mining executive was arrested in China one month after Rio Tinto refused a Chinese state offer to buy a bigger chunk of the company, and got 10+ years in prison.

    No connection between the two incidents, mind you – instead, he was guilty of ‘taking bribes’.

    Afaik, Australia did little to help him, and Rio Tinto simply fired him:

    In mid-March the four iron ore salesmen from the Anglo-Australian mining giant finally proceeded to trial after eight months’ detention. They were charged with taking bribes and stealing “commercial secrets” from Chinese steelmakers. For months the charges had been dismissed by many in the west as a stunt aimed at punishing Rio for walking away from a high-profile deal with Chinalco, the Chinese mining state champion.

    …In China, every prosecution is on some level political; but, had they been innocent, politics alone would not have been enough to convict them.

    …The court did not reveal whether those who paid the bribes have also been tried or convicted. “There are some people who should be put in jail but are enjoying their life better than ever,” says one industry insider.

    …The company, stunned by the detentions and frozen out of contact with its employees, spent months with lawyers and forensic accountants conducting an investigation of contracts, money flows, staff e-mails and its computer systems. But according to the company, it turned up no evidence of wrongdoing of any kind.

    …Saddled with almost $40 of debt, [Rio] turned to its largest shareholder, Chinalco , for a $19.5bn cash injection. In February 2009, the deal was framed as a broad-ranging strategic partnership between the two companies.

    It took five months for the deal – hated by Rio shareholders – to fall apart…Shortly afterwards, on June 5, it walked away from the Chinalco deal. On July 5 its four employees were detained.

    At first, western commentators saw this as revenge for the Chinalco deal’s failure. China Inc had been humiliated, the argument ran. The Chinese concept of “face” – involving honour and dignity – was raised.

    …The lack of basic information, amid an escalating international incident, was uniquely stomach-turning for a group whose fortunes are more than ever dependent on the Chinese economy. In 2009, 65 per cent of Rio’s net profits came from iron ore sales largely to China. Last year 24 per cent of all its output went to China.

    Once the men were convicted, Rio immediately sacked them, prompting accusations it had abandoned them to avoid Beijing’s censure. However, the miner has a rigid ethics policy that appears to have left it little choice.

    …Some foreign business people in China …have resolved to eschew BlackBerrys and laptops, and move offshore whenever they have sensitive deals to do. Others were already doing so.

    …“I’ve seen this so many times before,” says one foreign lawyer in Shanghai, noting that employees of foreign companies – especially those of Chinese descent – have often been detained without so much fanfare. “Chinese criminal laws are deliberately vague, so whenever the government wants to, it can enforce them.”

    But for industry insiders, the strongest impression from the affair was not necessarily the guilt or innocence of the men but the sense that overly high emotions accompanied Chinese actions from the iron ore negotiations to the failure of the Chinalco deal to the arrests. Whether intended or not, the sequencing conveys vindictiveness, some say.

    Perhaps the most abiding lesson, observers say, is that China remains an immature market operator with a government inexperienced in wielding its increasingly formidable power. In the meantime, a certain amount of heavy-handedness is inevitable.

    As Pat Buchanan has often written, after the end of the Cold War, America had the opportunity to return to sensible Defence, Foreign and Economic policies. Nato would be dissolved, foreign commitments drastically reduced and a mercantilist, America First economic policy emplaced.
    None of these were ever done. In fact, the opposite was done.
    Now, America is an economically hollowed out Great Power, like Spain in the late C17th. Unlike Spain, it has no Peruvian or Mexican silver mines to enable it to meet its foreign debts. Economic collapse beckons.
    For places like Australia, the choice is obvious. Start looking after its own interests, as America should have done. The alternative – increasing Chinese interference in Australian internal affairs – will not be in any way appealing.

    The overseas Chinese in South East Asia are a very benign elite, they haven't formed a hostile cultural elite in Southeast Asian countries motivated by historical grievances against the people and culture of their hosts. For example, despite their economic dominance, the Chinese have not been concerned with restrictions on their citizenship rights, which have been common in Southeast Asia. Whereas the Chinese have reacted rather passively to such restrictions, Jews have reacted to any manifestation of anti-Jewish attitudes or behavior with an all-out effort at eradication. Indeed, we have seen that the mainstream Jewish attitude is that even trivial manifestations of anti-Jewish attitudes and behavior must not be ignored because they can and will lead to mass murder. Not only have the Chinese not attempted to remove public displays of symbols of Indonesian nationalism and religion, they have not seriously attempted to change laws in place since the 1960s mandating that there be no public displays of Chinese culture. I would rather have our own elite but shifting to a Chinese elite seems an improvement from where we are.

    The Chinese are known as the Jews of Southeast Asia. On the surface they are very much like the Jews with much success in commerce and educational attainment, they are also known to be clever, cunning and dishonest like the Jews. But they also differ from the Jews in some very important ways:

    First, unlike the Jews who are power hungry the Chinese are not into political power. Case in point the 60 years of racial discrimination they suffered as a racial minority in Malaysia despite being the economic engine of that country. There are no widespread protests, no violence. They simply keep their heads down and work harder. Per Forbes of the top 10 richest people in Malaysia, 9 are of Chinese descent, despite blatant discrimination in every sphere and monopoly of natural resources like oil by the Malay majority who win every election with gerrymandering and massive corruption. In Thailand, the 12% Chinese changed their names, blended in and disappeared, as they do in the Philippines and Indonesia. The rule in SEA is the higher the proportion of Chinese as a minority, the richer the country. However, despite being rich and successful and Southeast Asia, they have no political power in any of those countries except Singapore where they form the majority, and that is the most successful country in SEA because Lee Kuan Yew governed with pragmatism as opposed to ideology.

    Second, the Chinese are pragmatic to a fault which means they are less likely to buy into this diversity = strength propaganda. Many Chinese I’ve met have a disdain for blacks whom they think are less intelligent, slothful and crime prone, and they hold the same low regard for the Mexicans except they are harder working. China has never invaded another country and the Chinese are not interested in interfering in everyone else’s politics going for regime change etc. to benefit themselves. They just want to do business with whoever’s in charge.

    Third, they are not narcissistic and vindictive like the Jews. In theory they hate the Japanese but you’d be surprised how many Chinese actually live in Japan, and I’ve met more Japanese/Chinese-American couples in the west coast than I care to count.

    Most Chinese-American kids major in STEM and have no time for SJW protests on campus. The Asian kids who protest on campus tend to be Filipinos or Indians. Chinese are natural allies of the Republican party as they are conservative and pragmatic. There are a few cucks out there but almost all are products of our elite schools. Ted Lieu (D) of CA is one, born in Taiwan, graduated from Stanford. Another is Theodore Chuang, the judge in MD who blocked Trump’s Muslim ban, went to Harvard. Then there’s Derrick Watson, despite the name, looks Asian, the HI judge who blocked Trump’s travel ban, more than once — another Harvard educated Kool-Aid drinking cuck.

    The best thing that could happen is to stop the chain migration of Asians aka Silent Invasion of the US and assimilate those already here. It would make them less likely to support the shenanigans of the Chinese Communist government. The next best thing that could happen is to have our elite schools continue to discriminate against Asian-Americans. We don’t need more Harvard/Stanford educated Asian cucks helping the Jews run the country to the ground. Jeff Sessions’ DOJ investigation of Harvard’s admission bias is a mistake. We want fewer Asians educated by the Traitorous Eight, not more.

    China has invaded India (1962) and Vietnam (1979). The former was to annex territory, the latter was to support the Khmer Rogue (The Vietnamese had invaded Pol Pot's Cambodia).

    There has been no evidence whatsoever in the last 25 years that they have been flying blind. China
    today is quite unlike the price and production quota setting Soviet Union.

    The state owned bank NPL and directed/favored infrastructure investment issues are big issues but unlikely to bring a large-export oriented manufacturing sector down.

    Hopefully the Chinese accelerate research at the Beijing Genomics Institute, discover genes linked to IQ, and immediately undertake IQ-boosting programs globally run by Chinese corporations. In a two or three generations they could boost Africa's, South America's IQ by 30 points, and create new economic middle classes out of thin air. Doing this will be in the interest of the Chinese as they can then shift their manufacturing abroad and they would have then created new consumers to buy their stuff.


    This is the really terrifying scenario of globalists taking over the world, not poverty. Imagine global GDP growing by 500%, our planet will be devastated in a century.

    Why would they do that? Just genetically engineer the Chinese to be superior and build robots to do unskilled labor. Helping potential competitors is just stupid and shortsighted.

    US leadership was convinced that Chinese would become mass consumers and a consumer-oriented culture...in the 60's. - Wrong - they are nothing like Americans or Europeans.

    Chinese culture is insular, silent, ancient, and resilient, and extremely productive and lastly, nationalistic. Even after the 20th century, the Chinese people are not convinced that the crap that the democracies we offer, are better. No, they look down on us all. They look down on all the degeneracy of the last 35 years; the PC crap, the stuff the NYT prints daily...makes them laugh at us even more, every fracking day. China will take over...and, it should be a relief to many people who claim to be atheists. Finally, IQ wins; religion is for idiots; and wars over religious differences are declared stupid, wasteful of money, and morally, well, just dumb, pointless, money losers. I will be happy to live under Chinese overlords because they will turn their focus on survival ! :) Most East Asians ignore God..so Christianity, Judeaism, and Muslim beliefs are irrelevant.

    Even after the 20th century, the Chinese people are not convinced that the crap that the democracies we offer, are better. No, they look down on us all.

    Its not quite that simple. The Communist Party was actually split between “liberals” and “conservatives” for lack of a better word during the 1990s and 2000s: liberals favored greater engagement and democracy. They still exist though they are definitely the losing faction.

    Since the 2010s, though, the conservative faction has definitely been on an upswing and a large part of that was the perception that liberal democracy has failed to deliver on its promise, so what exactly makes it such a perfect model to emulate?

    As far as the “people” are concerned, so as long as their incomes keep going up and life is pretty safe, none of this particularly matters. There may be demographic challenges going forward, etc, but day to day, those are not the things which the population cares about.

    Will someone please explain to yours truly, now a confirmed illiterate sucker, why Australia would allow foreign interests to threaten an Australian publisher to the point that they don't publish? What the hell is going on? Is some Chinese front posing as a private party in Australia so it can use the courts to censor criticism of China by pretending to file private lawsuits of libel, slander or whatever?

    China is our biggest problem. Someday those of us rubes who have been screaming this will say "I told you so" before we go to our graves.

    Glowing articles here about how great and successful China is do not impress us, because we are not under the illusion that the global game is not zero sum. It IS a zero sum game, and we are headed for Chinese domination, bankrolled and allowed by us.

    More people, especially "public intellectuals," need to spend time in nature. Go out into the wilderness alone and sleep on the ground. Watch life. It is kill or be killed. Eat or be eaten.

    Wake up and smell the green tea. Stand up to China.

    You’re presupposing that it’s just a matter of a course correction for our elites. It’s not the case. Across all Western nations the elites are all on the same page – they are want to eradicate the white race and culture.

    The culture and education system they arose out of has been rotting away for decades now and we’re seeing the fruit of it. You could see signs of it even during the Cold War and earlier.

    C.S. Lewis saw the beginnings of it in his time, he wrote about it in “The Abolition of Man”. Same with Chesterton. Mumford knew our culture had serious things wrong with it as well.

    It’s all rather unique in historical terms. Traditionally the elites are big into self-preservation and not destroying the very system that keeps them in power. But ours is doing just that. We even see it with the monied class that has been infected with the same thinking.

    Their official organs like The Economist, NYT, WSJ, WaPo, etc. Don’t even hide the fact they want whitey dead and gone.

    There is no fix outside of giving the elite the boot and tha’t can’t be done without violence.

    “Not been concerned with restrictions on their citizenship rights”?

    “…reacted passively..”?

    Well, not quite.

    Malaysian Chinese have always resented the Bumiputra policies strongly. They vote for what are essentially ethnic Chinese political parties and are no more than tiny minorities within the ethnic Malay political parties that have ruled the country for nearly seventy years.

    Yes, it’s true that the richest Malaysian citizens (e.g. Robert Kwok) are ethnic Chinese but, such people succeed under the protection of ethnic Malay politicians. The Chinese have markedly higher IQs and academic achievement than the ethnic Malays. Chinese success has nothing to do with Malay goodwill.

    There may have been times when the Chinese thought they had a shot at either real power or at least a piece of it. The Malaya Communist Party that fought an ultimately unsuccessful guerilla war against the government and British Army in tbe 1940s and 1950s was overwhelimngly ethnic Chinese, probably more than 90%.

    When opposition political parties, including the ethnic Chinese ones, did well in the May 1969 elections, several days of anti-Chinese rioting followed. Hundreds of Chinese were killed.

    At this point, Malaysian Chinese are simply resigned to political powerlessness and react with low birthrates and high emigration, particularly among the educated young.

    The situation in neighboring Indonesia is broadly similar.

  90. I think America has a lot more to fear with the brown invasion than we do the Chinese. As annoying as they are with their odd customs, harsh sounding language and crude manners, most Chinese assimilate quickly (usually within one generation), are hardworking, generally law abiding and most importantly, stay out of politics. Chinese are born capitalists and few have appetite for ideology. They are also not tribal. It’s common to hear about the Asian self-hate. They often try to steer clear of their own kind once they are assimilated.

    The Indians are a whole different story and a much bigger concern. Indians are tribal, arrogant and increasingly, political. Anyone who works in tech know that Indian managers only hire other Indians. Now they are increasingly getting into the public sector and hiring only Indians into their departments. Just like the Jews, many Indians go into the law as a profession. Many prosecutors are now Indian. Most Indians in politics are incredibly left wing. Almost all the Indians running for office in my area are not just Democrats, but left wing progressive nuts, and being tribal they get all the Indian votes, including I’m sure from many who aren’t even eligible to vote. Indians make up a large share of campus SJWs. The Obama admin was overrun by Indians, not just in high profile positions but even the rank and file in many government agencies.

    The Indians are the new Jews, not the Chinese. They are tribal, arrogant, ideological and power hungry. Indians worship whites and to them, Jews are the whites to worship. The Jews love them because they are dark skin therefore fit the diversity profile, smart enough to achieve good academic success but not smart enough to realize they are being brainwashed. I’ve often wondered why so many left wing Indian politicians in the West Coast don’t think about how socialism was the reason they or their parents had to leave India in the first place. They are doubling down and trying to turn the US into the next India, the sewer pit of humanity. These chest-thumping bullshit artists are the real danger to the US.

    At the end of the day, we need to curtail all third world immigration period. But the brown peril in the end will prove to be even greater than the yellow peril.

    I agree with most of this except the Asian self-hate. Asians are very proud of what they have achieved worldwide and look down on whites as lazy and entitled. They most certainly do not avoid one another. First generation immigrants tend to have vibrant communities that support each other. The successive generations tend to move away from home and assimilate so they no longer need that network of Asians for support.

    I agree completely on Indians. I am originally from the Caribbean where some islands are 40% Indian in population. The problem with Hindu Indians is that their religion does not have a framework of morality like the West. The tribe comes first. Even above integrity and honesty. Nepotism and corruption are rampant with them when placed in managerial or government roles. The caste system and culture also makes them very prone to skin worship of whites. This makes them quite susceptible to the dominant ideology (in this case Progressivism).

    I would be very concerned with the amount of Indians coming into the USA. Particularly H1Bs. That is basically the Indian Visa. No other countries come even close.

    Agree about public intellectuals needing to spend some time sleeping on the ground in nature.

    The Globalists do believe that life is not a zero-sum game. For them, everyone wins when each does just the one thing he does best. If you're good at growing coffee, then don't try to make engine blocks.

    There's a problem with this scheme though and that it is desirable in any particular society or economy for there to be a niche for the type of precise thinking and doing that goes into making engine blocks. Understanding mining, refining, milling, machining, polishing etc. inculcates habits of mind that cannot be acquired except through the doing of them. Globalist economists don't appreciate this because they've never done it; they make models and crunch numbers.

    There is a tremendous amount of wisdom that has accumulated in manufacturing that is revealed only to the practitioner. The repertoire of technical skills used to create a technical society implicitly creates a bank or repository of higher mental skills. The thinking imposes itself on the mind of the doer. In any society there needs to be a class of technicians who are adept in this kind of thinking and they become so only by the doing. Precision is an acquired habit.

    The wisdom implicit in the doing only makes itself obvious to the doer, which is why globalist economists miss it. They design a world of perfect exchange, of perfect division of labor. This consigns certain players to inferior roles forever. Exporters of commodities or farm products will never master the higher order habits of mind or rediscover for themselves the fabulous amount of wisdom that is embedded in manufacturing. And this is a real loss. As Marx observed, it is to be less than human. Humans are makers and the mode of production does determine mindset.

    I was about to agree. And then you quoted Marx as an authority. Marx!

    Whose side are you on? Because Marx unleashed more terror than anyone except Satan could imagine.

    What’s next on your authority list? George Soros on individual liberty? Hillary Clinton on how to be an honest citizen? Bill Clinton on how to see women for their intrinsic value? Barak Obama on how to keep a grifter out of the White House? Hitler on how to be kind to the Jews? Stalin on building a society without terror?

    It's called the ANZUS treaty. Basically Australia can't defend itself against any serious foe so the deal is we support every American war, even the unpopular ones like Vietnam and Iraq, and in return America will save our bacon if ever we are seriously threatened.

    Personally, I wish we'd developed a nuclear deterrent like a serious country and gone independent.

    Actually the ANZUS Treaty is a pretty soft Treaty . It’s no NATO . All it requires is for the parties to have a discussion when one of the signatories requests it .

    The opposition leader in Australia is a half-Chinese lesbian - Penny Wong.

    If you want an image of an octopus encircling the world, then that image is more likely Chinese than Jewish. Only last week Mugabe left office after the Chinese got tired of him.

    Well Penny Wong actually Leads the ( Labor ) Opposition in the Senate .If history is any guide I doubt many would consider this a first rung position in Australian politics .
    Her father was Malaysian Chinese , her mother who raised her in Australia , an Anglo-Celt Australian .
    She is a lesbian living with female partner and her partner’s child(ren )although earlier in her life she apparently had boyfriends .

    Which reminds me that a great number of ethnic Chinese in Australia -probably still a majority -come from the South East Asian Chinese diaspora rather than the PRC with Malaysia the top contributor . Many are very Anglo Western in their tastes . There are a lot of Derb style couplings .
    By comparison South Asians are much more likely to live their life within their own community notwithstanding a devotion to cricket

    Australians are cucks. Something like 20% of Australians have

    Australians have very weak identity. One Australian guy I follow
    became an orthodox Jew following his career as a porn journalist!
    My older sister had an Australian penpal in the early 1970s who
    wanted to come to America to marry her (she was maybe 14). This
    complete loss of identity is associated with borderline

    Australians seem to be overdosed on both disorders. The ultimate
    cause of this I’ll leave to philosophers but the how of it is
    that Australians appear to be a moderately defective group
    suffering a general crisis of identity. It may be something in

    I think America has a lot more to fear with the brown invasion than we do the Chinese. As annoying as they are with their odd customs, harsh sounding language and crude manners, most Chinese assimilate quickly (usually within one generation), are hardworking, generally law abiding and most importantly, stay out of politics. Chinese are born capitalists and few have appetite for ideology. They are also not tribal. It's common to hear about the Asian self-hate. They often try to steer clear of their own kind once they are assimilated.

    The Indians are a whole different story and a much bigger concern. Indians are tribal, arrogant and increasingly, political. Anyone who works in tech know that Indian managers only hire other Indians. Now they are increasingly getting into the public sector and hiring only Indians into their departments. Just like the Jews, many Indians go into the law as a profession. Many prosecutors are now Indian. Most Indians in politics are incredibly left wing. Almost all the Indians running for office in my area are not just Democrats, but left wing progressive nuts, and being tribal they get all the Indian votes, including I'm sure from many who aren't even eligible to vote. Indians make up a large share of campus SJWs. The Obama admin was overrun by Indians, not just in high profile positions but even the rank and file in many government agencies.

    The Indians are the new Jews, not the Chinese. They are tribal, arrogant, ideological and power hungry. Indians worship whites and to them, Jews are the whites to worship. The Jews love them because they are dark skin therefore fit the diversity profile, smart enough to achieve good academic success but not smart enough to realize they are being brainwashed. I've often wondered why so many left wing Indian politicians in the West Coast don't think about how socialism was the reason they or their parents had to leave India in the first place. They are doubling down and trying to turn the US into the next India, the sewer pit of humanity. These chest-thumping bullshit artists are the real danger to the US.

    At the end of the day, we need to curtail all third world immigration period. But the brown peril in the end will prove to be even greater than the yellow peril.

    I agree with most of this except the Asian self-hate. Asians are very proud of what they have achieved worldwide and look down on whites as lazy and entitled. They most certainly do not avoid one another. First generation immigrants tend to have vibrant communities that support each other. The successive generations tend to move away from home and assimilate so they no longer need that network of Asians for support.

    I agree completely on Indians. I am originally from the Caribbean where some islands are 40% Indian in population. The problem with Hindu Indians is that their religion does not have a framework of morality like the West. The tribe comes first. Even above integrity and honesty. Nepotism and corruption are rampant with them when placed in managerial or government roles. The caste system and culture also makes them very prone to skin worship of whites. This makes them quite susceptible to the dominant ideology (in this case Progressivism).

    I would be very concerned with the amount of Indians coming into the USA. Particularly H1Bs. That is basically the Indian Visa. No other countries come even close.

    China has never invaded another country and the Chinese are not interested in interfering in everyone else’s politics going for regime change etc. to benefit themselves.
     
    China has invaded India (1962) and Vietnam (1979). The former was to annex territory, the latter was to support the Khmer Rogue (The Vietnamese had invaded Pol Pot's Cambodia).

    Don’t forget, China has invaded Tibet.

    Correct.

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/niallmccarthy/2017/04/19/india-and-china-accounted-for-82-percent-of-u-s-h-1b-visas-in-2016-infographic/#14eace5b5344

    India sent over about 126,000 H-1Bs in 2016.

    However, China sent over about 145,000 students on F1 student visas last year, greatly exceeding the number India sent (about 62,000)

    https://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/Statistics/Non-Immigrant-Statistics/NIVDetailTables/FY16%20NIV%20Detail%20Table.pdf

    The student visa used to allow for the foreign student to stay on one year and work at a regular job after graduating for the purposes of “practical training.”

    The Obama administration, in a little noticed administrative order, increased that to 3 years for STEM graduates.

    3 years is plenty of time for a STEM foreign student (which I think most Chinese students are) to become indispensable to the employer, and allows plenty of time for the employer to sponsor them for permanent residence (a green card), which is the pathway to citizenship.

    Note that even if the 3 years runs out while the immigration application is being processed, the employee can stay on and continue working as an illegal alien whose status is “in process and under review.”

    I still think the yellow peril is a greater danger because of East Asians’ greater average intelligence and lesser tendency to ostentation. East Asians are good at (and, even more importantly, actively prefer) flying under the radar. They are also the champions of acting kind to those whom they wish to destroy and cruel to those whom they wish to preserve (cf. the parenting techniques and attitudes of the majority of East Asian women). I am often astounded by how naïve and complacent many Westerners appear to be toward East Asians.

    The Australian mentality was always ‘don’t be a tall poppy, tall poppies are to be cut down. ‘

    Business success was held in contempt and to make anything really nice, really first rate, was considered showing off. Australian electronics and cars were generally second rate, especially the Holden with its “red motor” that was a legend -reliable as long as you didn’t run it over 3000 rpm. They never exported squat. They had domestic production only because of high tariffs.

    Will someone please explain to yours truly, now a confirmed illiterate sucker, why Australia would allow foreign interests to threaten an Australian publisher to the point that they don't publish? What the hell is going on? Is some Chinese front posing as a private party in Australia so it can use the courts to censor criticism of China by pretending to file private lawsuits of libel, slander or whatever?

    China is our biggest problem. Someday those of us rubes who have been screaming this will say "I told you so" before we go to our graves.

    Glowing articles here about how great and successful China is do not impress us, because we are not under the illusion that the global game is not zero sum. It IS a zero sum game, and we are headed for Chinese domination, bankrolled and allowed by us.

    More people, especially "public intellectuals," need to spend time in nature. Go out into the wilderness alone and sleep on the ground. Watch life. It is kill or be killed. Eat or be eaten.

    Wake up and smell the green tea. Stand up to China.

    Because it’s not true. The same guy claiming persecution is a perpetual wolf crier who was claiming he was being silenced a decade ago ago.

    The truth of the matter is, the Chinese are extremely mal-adapt at producing agitprop that is palatable towards Western tastes and are entirely incapable of subverting Westerners except the rare individual for sale or subject to Soviet style Compramat. Ever heard of the Three Represents or a Moderately Prosperous Society? Yeah, that’s why Chinese Communist propaganda doesn’t work.

    The Chinese party is directing influence towards Australia, Canada, and the US but it isn’t towards subverting your systems and your people, but rather it is in the form of counter-intelligence. It is entirely directed towards Chinese student populations living abroad, the overwhelming majority of whom now return to China, to counter their subversion by Western forces. That is all efforts are directed primarily at other Chinese to prevent them from being converted into Western Liberals at Western universities the same way they undermine White Western students.

    The overseas Chinese in South East Asia are a very benign elite, they haven't formed a hostile cultural elite in Southeast Asian countries motivated by historical grievances against the people and culture of their hosts. For example, despite their economic dominance, the Chinese have not been concerned with restrictions on their citizenship rights, which have been common in Southeast Asia. Whereas the Chinese have reacted rather passively to such restrictions, Jews have reacted to any manifestation of anti-Jewish attitudes or behavior with an all-out effort at eradication. Indeed, we have seen that the mainstream Jewish attitude is that even trivial manifestations of anti-Jewish attitudes and behavior must not be ignored because they can and will lead to mass murder. Not only have the Chinese not attempted to remove public displays of symbols of Indonesian nationalism and religion, they have not seriously attempted to change laws in place since the 1960s mandating that there be no public displays of Chinese culture. I would rather have our own elite but shifting to a Chinese elite seems an improvement from where we are.

    It’s too late. Intellectual Chinese can no longer separate their lives from “mainstream Chinese.” – it’s a runaway train where everyone who is not rich and happy and SECURE, is separated from the ones that are not – 99% of Chinese – same as it ever was. We are living in a Watershed Moment. Chinese are not in control of their billions.

    Even after the 20th century, the Chinese people are not convinced that the crap that the democracies we offer, are better. No, they look down on us all.
     
    Its not quite that simple. The Communist Party was actually split between "liberals" and "conservatives" for lack of a better word during the 1990s and 2000s: liberals favored greater engagement and democracy. They still exist though they are definitely the losing faction.

    Since the 2010s, though, the conservative faction has definitely been on an upswing and a large part of that was the perception that liberal democracy has failed to deliver on its promise, so what exactly makes it such a perfect model to emulate?

    As far as the "people" are concerned, so as long as their incomes keep going up and life is pretty safe, none of this particularly matters. There may be demographic challenges going forward, etc, but day to day, those are not the things which the population cares about.

    that’s just it: there is no great method other than capitalism and freedom to create operations.

    Unfortunately, the Chinese are nationalists at home and globalists abroad. If western countries put restrictions and tariffs on Chinese goods, or restrictions on Chinese immigration, the Chinese diaspora soon starts squealing about white ethnocentrism. Only whites promote globalism at home and abroad.

    well, once people can’t afford cheap stuff (we are about 2 years away) at like, fracking Walmart, Costco, crappy Big Box store…shit happens. Alibaba can not leapfrog to the rescue since Alibaba & Amazon still sells to wealthier people – dirty little secret.

    And, haha! I think the most ironic thing is: Liberals don’t care about the middle class, never have, or really, even the poor working class of all races, because….well, they will cease to have any agency in a true Authoritarian Democracy run by East Asians.
