In a Financial Times op-ed, “Investors in Xi’s China face a rude awakening” (August 30, 2021), George Soros writes that Xi’s “crackdown on private enterprise shows he does not understand the market economy. … Xi Jinping, China’s leader, has collided with economic reality. His crackdown on private enterprise has been a significant drag on the economy.”

Translated out of Orwellian Doublethink, the “crackdown on private enterprise” means cutting back on what the classical economists called rent-seeking and unearned income. As for its supposed “drag on the economy,” Mr. Soros means the economy’s polarization concentrating wealth and income in the hands of the richest One Percent.

Soros lays out his plan for how U.S. retaliation may punish China by withholding U.S. funding of its companies (as if China cannot create its own credit) until China capitulates and imposes the kind of deregulation and de-taxation that Russia did after 1991. He warns that China will suffer depression by saving its economy along socialist lines and resisting U.S.-style privatization and its associated debt deflation.

Mr. Soros does recognize that China’s “most vulnerable sector is real estate, particularly housing. China has enjoyed an extended property boom over the past two decades, but that is now coming to an end. Evergrande, the largest real estate company, is over-indebted and in danger of default. This could cause a crash.” By that, he means a reduction of housing prices. That’s just what is needed in order to deter land becoming a speculative vehicle. I and others have urged a policy of land taxation in order to collect the land’s rising site value, so that it will not be pledged to banks for mortgage credit to further inflate china’s housing prices.

Warning about the economic consequences of China’s falling birth rate, Soros writes: “One of the reasons why middle-class families are unwilling to have more than one child is that they want to make sure that their children will have a bright future.” This is of course true of every advanced nation today. It is most extreme in the neoliberalized countries, e.g., the Baltics and Ukraine – Soros’s poster countries.

Soros gives his game away by stating that “Xi does not understand how markets operate.” What he means is that President Xi rejects rapacious rent-seeking, exploitative free-for-all, and shapes markets to serve overall prosperity for China’s 99 Percent. “As a consequence, the sell-off was allowed to go too far,” Soros continues. What he means is, too far to maintain the dominance of the One Percent. China is seeking to reverse economic polarization, not intensify it.


Soros claims that China’s socialist policies are hurting its objectives in the world. But what he really is complaining about is that it is hurting America’s neoliberal objectives for how it had hoped to make money for itself off China. This leads Soros to remind Western pension fund managers to “allocate their assets in ways that are closely aligned with the benchmarks against which their performance is measured.” But the tragedy of financializing pensions is that fund managers are rated on making money financially – in ways that hurt the industrial economy by promoting financial engineering instead of industrial engineering.

“Almost all of them claim that they factor environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) standards into their investment decisions,” Soros writes. At least, that’s what their public relations advisors advertise. Exxon claims to be cleaning up the environment by expanding offshore oil drilling in Guyana, etc. As for “social standards,” the neoliberal mantra is trickle-down economics: by making our stock prices rise, by stock buybacks and higher dividend payouts, we are helping wage-earners earn a pension, even though we are offshoring and de-industrializing the economy, de-unionizing it and “freeing” the economy from consumer and workplace protection laws.

Soros has a radical solution, which he suggests “should obviously apply to the performance benchmarks selected by pensions and other retirement portfolios: … The US Congress should pass a bipartisan bill explicitly requiring that asset managers invest only in companies where actual governance structures are both transparent and aligned with stakeholders.”

Wow. Such a bill would block Americans from investing in many American companies whose behavior is not at all aligned with stakeholders. What proportion: 50%? 75? More?

“If Congress were to enact these measures,” Soros concludes, “it would give the Securities and Exchange Commission the tools it needs to protect American investors, including those who are unaware of owning Chinese stocks and Chinese shell companies. That would also serve the interests of the US and the wider international community of democracies.” So Mr. Soros wants to block the United States from investing in China. He seems not to see that this is President Xi’s objective also: China doesn’t need U.S. dollars, and is in fact de-dollarizing.

George Soros is obviously upset that President Xi is not Boris Yeltsin, and that China is not following the kleptocracy dependency that warped Russia’s economy. Soros thought the ending of the Cold War would simply let him buy up the most lucrative rent-yielding assets, as he has aimed to do in the Baltics and Ukraine. China said “No,” so it is not deemed to be a “market economy,” Soros-style. It has not made its social organization marketable, and has avoided the financial dependency that makes “markets” a vehicle for U.S. control via sanctions and foreign buyouts.

    Tyrants come and go. They die like all the rest of us.
    We’re very privileged in reading how Dr. Michael Hudson slices and dices Soros malignant look on the world.

    We, in the Western World are under the sway of these many “tyrants.”
    From Gates, Soros, Fink of Black Rock & Vanguard&, but they will all vanish with the passage of time, and how very short will be their lifetime;

    in a twinkling of the eye, they will have lived a worthless, pathetic life.

    For all eternity, they will be despised and spat upon by God and mankind.

  2. This paragraph is a lot more appropriate here:

    At the core of the solution is a simple principle: Society should not be shaped by the Economy, the Economy sould (sic) be shaped by Society. Commerce acts as the agent of Economy and Governance is the agent of Society. The arena is defined and Governance is the referee of Commerce. So, lobbying and campaign contributions is functionally bribing the officials.

    From my comment, #23 at

    Mr. Soros obviously thinks maximizing profits is the end all. Mammon worshiper.

    this smacks of desperation for soros and by extension the rest of the rent seeking billionaire scumbags. they seem to feel that if they can’t shove the xi cat back into the bag, the jig may be up for them. wouldn’t it be wonderful to see their ivory towers tumble to the ground.

  4. …hurting America’s neoliberal objectives for how it had hoped to make money for itself off China.

    Has anybody in the West made money for themselves “off China”? The Chinese are, as Lem Billings said about JFK, always on he receiving end.

  5. The International Jewish kleptocracy, and its goy allies, will NEVER control China. Soros is day-dreaming, imagining that his cult can control a completely separate civilization where they cannot ‘blend in’, or buy the ruling elites. Unhappily, such machinations, in a country where truth-telling about Soros and his ilk is not banned, will only generate hatred of the meddlers. Biting off more than they can chew, as they always do. Luckily, the Chinese are not into vengefulness, unlike Soros and his tribe. If we survive, say a miracle happens, the Chinese will put the Jewish elites in their place-as one human community among many, NOT ‘Gods Upon the Earth’.

  6. Too vain, narcissistic, decadent, and degenerate to be communist.

    A cancerous outgrowth of capitalism. Maybe should be called Fagitalism. Das Fagital.

    Imagine Soros’ horror that the Chinese are now banning “girlie men” and celebrity worship from the media, and limiting youngsters to no more than three hours of video games per week. Sure, their system of tying one’s privileges to social scoring mechanisms seems creepy, but no more so than the West’s “vaccine” mandates, lockdowns, and the CDC’s announcement that “first and foremost,” the unvaccinated should not travel over the holiday weekend.

    Soros is pissing in the wind if he thinks the elitist thugs who run the West can control China, which won’t be cowed nor overcome by economic warfare nor by threats of military attacks. They will continue with their plans while watching the West self-immolate on greed and corruption.

The Umayyad dynasty, the Aomaiya dynasty, was the first hereditary and the most powerful dynasty in the Arab Empire. A General History of Arabia
    After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States became a true global empire. World domination could have been a direct tax. Dollar seigniorage. Each new emperor can also carry out sogon tour, but the jewish royal family behind it is still not satisfied. Major princes have led under the financial horse bandits. Raiding the tribes under the empire.

    Soros is a Jewish financial nomad. In 1997, Soros saw southeast Asia as a fertile land. So he said nakedly. I’m going to rob the Southeast Asian tribes. you native headmen. The elite can come with me and rob your people. It’s not a crime to share the crumbs. I’m here to legitimize the robbery. If you fight back. Have you seen my carrier?

    Hence these predatory financial gangsters. There’s no robbing outside. So they took over their own tribes… So there was the crisis of 2008. Administrative measures to push up health education. Expense. Consumerism: the use of credit cards to turn principal citizens into debt slaves to which everyone owes debt.

    So the United States is a modern sea nomad called the Blue Horde

    My conclusion: if Mr Soros cannot even convert Hungary, why he is confident he can convert China.

    China is a merchant state. It needs to sell good and buy the raw product. To pull all off, it need to use foreign currency and foreign consumers. To subvert China, does Soros actually need residence there? Buy up the farm ground and water supplies would work. Also Soros is just a goon for the Rothschilds. Aren’t Rothies China’s international bankers? Finally how much of international (aka western Europeans) intellectual property has China acquired thru nefarious means via Israel? Seems like the Chinese might already be owned despite their questionable wisdom.

  38. Soros will live just long enough to see all of his dreams shattered. Not long now.

    The problem for Soros and his ilk is they have handed the power that they never earned in the first place and therefore have no understanding of to people who don’t look like them and so there is no hiding there and meanwhile they have screwed up the lives and countries of the only peoples that they can go largely unnoticed amongst and who created the power in the first place.

    The newest exchange in Beijing is only to help small and medium size enterprises of special merit (i.e., very innovative businesses) needing funds to grow and expand:

    “No more leaky leaky bullshit going in Shanghai, Shenzen and Hong Kong.”

    Foreign investment in the Shanghai exchange is relatively limited:

    Foreign investment in the Shenzhen exchange is forbidden currently (as I recall), but that is supposed to be changing in a few years. The HK exchange is pretty much wide open (i.e., ‘leaky bullshit’)

    Jews gotta Jew.

  44. Terrorist Ziocorporate globalism really wants you to focus on the vileness, or tenacity, of rich Jews. The implication, though, is that what Soros actually represents is, ironically, upset that their Chinese business partners, whose development is partly due to Western tech transfers and trade schemes, aren’t into micromanaging Chinese taxcattle to the point of their integration into a controlled transhumanist singularity of entropy that imitates the one in the West, despite the social credit system and all.

    China, however, keeps opening Disneylands and Universal theme parks, and partaking in global stock market and eurodollar financial scams, so in a world of mass hysteria and lockdowns, it presents a perfect background for political posturing like, Soros’, to usher that “multipolar” singularity into the Western market of taxcattle. Something Xi’s bureaucracy never refers to.

    After scrutinising the Ziocorporate terrorists’ flippant take on China, what is quite clear is that there’re still no leaders or groups of people capable of bringing about true development in the West, except for the “WEF global leaders for tomorrow” types to read nothing beyond teleprompter literalities.

    Soon we’ll have the Jesuitic pope come out to tell us evil Xi’s closing churches and persecuting LGBT and feminist minorities, to target the part of the market that listens to him more than to Soros.

  45. @Old and Grumpy

    “I wouldn’t bet against the tribe here. Modern China wouldn’t exist without them.”

    Maybe so, but the Chinese leadership isn’t stupid and can see what is going on currently in the West financially. It isn’t pretty, and the CPC’s leaders aren’t blind.

    If China stays smart and keeps Jewish Supremacism, Inc (JSI) at bay as much as possible, I believe we will very likely see in the near future a military showdown between JSI and the CPC using Uncle Shmuel & Co. as the usual financiers and cannon fodder. I further believe this may be in part why Joe “I am a Zionist!” Biden and the puppeteers who control him are leaving the Afghans behind (sort of) and possibly the Iraqis later this year (I’ll believe that one when I see it) and pivoting to East Asia, meaning China. If Sleepy Joe balks, it might be time for the 25th amendment removal (or worse) and the Harris/Emhoff presidency to begin. And that would herald Dog nose what, internationally. Nothing good, though, I strongly suspect, but could be wrong (which I hope, should it come to pass.)

    How this all plays out is anyone’s guess, but JSI, like the CPC leadership, is not stupid. Far from it.

    This may get really ugly really soon. Again, I hope not, but JSI is at its peak of power, arrogant as hell, and always has the ‘Samson Option’ in its back pocket should things work out not to their collective liking, sadly……..

    “China is a merchant state”

    Yes, and worth mentioning: That is magnified by being smart. A few decades ago, China created a university-level (or masters) degree in simultaneous interpreting, for industry. That facilitated the capture of US manufacturing. Graduates conducted factory tours, located sources, and made the whole process possible. Thus, while Soros focused on rent-seeking, China graduated simultaneous interpreters who then went on to specialize in particular industries.

  56. anon[282] • Disclaimer says:

    China’s Xi is a visionary. His new turn inward is reminiscent of China in the late 12th century, when the Song Dynasty signed a peace treaty with the barbarian Jin Dynasty up north, turned inward, flourished economically and culturally, while at the same time maintaining a strong defense so they were able to ward off subsequent invasions from the north.

    Xi saw how the West is disintegrating after 5 decades of warmongering, imperialism, market (profit) driven economy, high immigration, and unfettered freedom (leftism), which led to our extreme inequality, societal disunity and cultural rot, and wisely decided that is not the future for China. Economically, Mr. Xi wants China to resemble Europe in particular Germany much more than the US, i.e. an industrialized rather than a financialized economy to ensure widespread prosperity. Culturally, China wants to retain its conservative roots to avoid the moral degeneracy not just in the West but increasingly in countries that blindly ape the West like S.Korea and Japan. China has a long history and the Chinese understood that humans eventually turn into animals when there is too much freedom. Protestantism staved off the West’s cultural rot for a while but now it too is crumbling.

    It is still too early to tell how these economic measures the CPC has announced will fare in the long run, but if properly executed, I think it’ll successfully give China a much more self-reliant economy:
    1) Much stricter data privacy laws akin to that of the EU
    2) Discouraging Chinese companies from listing overseas and instead list domestically on the Shanghai SE and a new Beijing Stock Exchange which will resemble Nasdaq
    3) Preventing private equity (hence corporate and potentially foreign) purchase of Chinese real estate

    Similarly, we don’t know how the new cultural changes will pan out:
    1) Reducing amount of private tutoring and banning homework for age 6 and under to reduce pressure on young children
    2) Restricting video game time to 3 hrs/wk for 18 and under
    3) Attacking shows that glorify vanity, idol worshiping and emasculation of boys

    Ultimately these measures can only succeed if people see a way out without a college degree, e.g. high paying manufacturing and trade skill jobs like plumbing, carpentry, electrician etc. China must once again promote respect for manual labor the way they do in Germany to avoid the failure of Jew run economies, i.e. utter disdain for manual labor especially farming.

    China should look to Victorian England as a model. The Victorian era was considered the height of English civilization, when the upper class took their responsibility seriously to show the lower class the importance of religion and its associated conservative values such as integrity and self-restraint. Educated farmers were respected as “gentleman farmers”. It is of course antithetical for the CPC to encourage a Western religion, but they should adapt elements of Protestantism and the enlightenment into their Civics education to teach morality to their youth. The Chinese are not known for their civic mindedness, integrity and self-restraint, it is still too much of a dog-eat-dog world, everyone doing whatever they can get away with to get rich and get the hell out, screw everyone else. If China wants to succeed, it must instill these qualities in its people.

    The next step is for China to ban all Hollywood movies altogether. Hollywood is the #1 purveyor of Jewish cultural rot around the world. But of course now they are being supplanted by the internet, not just porn and video games but also sites like YouTube, Netflix, Amzn Prime Video, HBO and the degenerate garbage shows they produce. All those should be banned in China with no way to circumvent via VPN.

    The US is hurtling towards bankruptcy, both economically and morally, and bringing along the rest of the “free” world. Here’s hoping China can successfully show the world a new way forward.

    Soros is warning Premier Xi because Xi is in a struggle with the old Chinese Oligarchs, about 50 Oligarchic elite Communist families who literally run and own China behind the scenes. And Soros is linked to them Oligarchs. Jiang Zemin is one of them as his family literally owns Shanghai. Those Oligarchs are close to the Globalist Bankers and made a lot of money in the last few decades, boatloads of money. They are close to Hollywood, Wall Street, European banking institutions etc..
    Xi was just a front man at first but got secret info about them Oligarchs when he was on a visit to the USA because some Chinese head of Police who was in soup, took a lot of information about these families, tapped conversations and all and gave them to an American embassy. He foolishly thought that would save his skin but as usual the Americans especially the Democ-rats ratted on the poor guy and made a deal with the Chinese Oligarchs. The Chief of Police guy died in prison. Demons like Obamba, Killary Hillary, Nancy Pisslosi etc… were involved. The Chinese chief of Staff was naive to trust America and that too Democ-rats demons. No wonder he was backstabbed.
    Xi was in the USA with Vice President Biden and he got wind of all this info. So in China he asked the Oligarchs for control of the PLA (partial control) because control of the PLA means big power in the PRC system. The Chinese Communist Oligarchs were happy with the financial aspect of things except for some reason now they seem to be in some form of further power struggle with President Xi or it seems Xi is just consolidating even more power. And so Xi began clamping the financial aspects of the PRC to weaken them Oligarchs up. That is what all that Hong Kong fiasco was all about, HK has a lot of money, it is a major financial center of the World. All that security laws and the revolt of HK youth against the CCP have a lot more to do with this power struggle than anything else.
    Some say Xi’s actions remind them of Chiang-Kai Shek and that may be true upto some extent. But to be honest he is emulating Chairman Mao. Because in the power struggle behind the scenes he is in the same situation as Mao was once, isolated within the CCP before he started the Cultural Revolution. Xi is only emulating many of Mao’s move as he finds himself in a similar situation and he has learnt the moves Mao took to protect his own position in the past (against many in the CCP including Deng at that time). Soros is connected to those old Oligarchs and is not happy with Xi’s actions. P.R. China may be slowly going back to its old days, Maoist like days. It may close up again to the rest of the World. Lets see if that happens.

    I heard that Xi is extremely popular in China among the people, which must mean he’s not popular with the 1%, whose interests are always against that of their own people like everywhere else. I respect the way he reigned in oligarchs like Jack Ma, many of whom worship the US and regard listing their companies on the NYSE or Nasdaq as the benchmark for success. For a while it looked like China was heading towards a future that resembles that of the US: an increasingly corrupt, morally dubious, profit above all else plutocracy operating under the guise of freedom and democracy, but now it looks like it might be taking a different turn.

    For the past 3 decades and under previous leaders, China has adopted an outward looking strategy where the Chinese were encouraged to travel far and wide to see the world and learn from them while China was still poor and backward. Many end up worshiping the West for its modernity and freedom and emigrated in droves. In the last decade, China has modernized a great deal, but its economy is in danger of becoming like that of Japan and South Korea, which resembles that of the US, with a small upper middle class of professionals working for large corporations doing well, while everyone else work for minimum wage in the manufacturing or service industries. Underemployment of college grads is very high in most OECD countries. We have too many liberal arts majors working at Starbucks, or trying to survive the gig economy without health insurance and with six figure college debts.

    China needs to avoid the over-education trap like in the US, where higher ed is turning into a scam and a farce. We now have an over educated, under-skilled populace. As soon as someone gets a college diploma, they immediately think themselves too good for any “blue collar” jobs, even if their degree is completely useless like in grievance studies. Businesses are now forced to hire these people to do unproductive jobs like VP of DEI. Compare this to Germany where factory work remains highly prized; instead of offshoring their factory jobs to maximize profit for the financial managers, they keep their factory jobs and upgraded their workers’ skills.

    The Chinese revere education, but higher ed is not an unalloyed good and is not the cure all, the sooner the Chinese realize this, the better off they’ll be. But the government needs to help this along by increasing high skill factory jobs, encourage the concept of “gentleman farmers”, and have a system of education that emphasizes 1 to 2 year vocational training in lieu of the Bachelor’s degree. Chinese universities need to junk the bachelor’s degree for certification programs. Stop the over education trap right in its track.

  86. Many conzos bitch and whine about ‘Chinese-Style Censorship’ coming to the West, but that would actually be good for the White Race. After all, Chinese Censorship is about favoring masculinity over effeminacy, nationalism over treason, workers’ rights over deracinated oligopoly, majority pride over alien-minority subversion, traditional values over post-modern decadence, unity of men & women over feminist dissension, and family values over globo-homo degeneracy.
    If Western Censorship were Chinese-like, it would be a boon for conservatives. But in the West, censorship is really Jewish-Style Censchwarzship that inverts all national, traditional, and healthy values. In the West, people are censored, blacklisted, and destroyed for defending nationalism against globalism, majority pride against minority subversion, family values against globo-homo decadence, harmony of men & women against feminist venom, and etc.

    The Social Credit System in China favors the nationalists and patriots. The Social Credit System in the West favors Zionists, globo-homo freaks, and white cucks. Which is preferable? Chinese-style censorship or Jewish-style censchwarzship?

    P.S. Downside of banning effeminacy is suppression of genius-artists like David Bowie. Still, it’s my understanding that China means to ban them from mainstream TV. Freaks can exist in their own space, where they belong. A healthy society has space for freaks, but they must remain in their own bohemian niches. When they push the New Normal on the mainstream, the end result is like the West where some guy with penis and balls is said to be ‘woman’.

Germany finally organised as an unified, Christian European nation in the 19th century and were late to the colonial party, but still got to have a concession in Shanghai before WW1; while the oldest mosque in Beijing is over 1000 yrs old. The Western brand of “greatness” is nothing but glittery bullshit.

    And Germany is not even Germany anymore, it is EU, and the seat of the ECB with the entire eurozone is their taxcattle farm and looking to expand around the world, even with rather tame partners like Putin. What’s more, Germans are educated to think Mao killed 100 million Chinese just like that, while ignoring the millions upon millions of Europeans that other Europeans have killed, and never even bothering about their colonial and Ziocorporate interventions overseas.

    Almost Agree all,but in the media/education/even the judicial field in China,there are a large number of people receiving subsidies from the Soros Foundation.

    They tried to infiltrate and gradually change China with some strange actions (relative to traditional Chinese mainstream cognition).

    For example, fund feminist organizations,bribe a small number of opinion leaders, and exacerbate gender confrontation. The gender opposition of young people in China is even one of the reasons that affect fertility.
    (Paradoxically, they even bribed some advertising departments of male brands and hired the above-mentioned opinion leaders to endorse.)

    Labelling people and then picking up different people to fight against each other is the best tool for Jewish conglomerates to dominate the world.

    In another example, they secretly subsidize some artists’ brokerage companies to establish a “FanQuan” culture in China and organize young people/low-cultural adults by Quasi-cult method.

    For another example, In the famous case of “BaiXiangGuo Girl”, a man brutally raped and killed a 10-year-old girl, a poor girl whose father died of saving people when she was one year old.
    She sold BaiXiangGuo fruit for her family alone. The man hid on her way home, tortured and abused without humanity, and then raped and killed.
    The provincial court then revoked the death sentence, which was inconceivable to the mainstream perception in China and aroused great public opinion response.

    There are many examples of this kind. For example, the Ministry of Agriculture of China has listed turkey in traditional Chinese poultry.
    It’s almost a joke, but it’s true. Some traitors bought by the Jewish Foundation need to use this “zhi lu wei ma” action to identify their own people and test the obedience of society.

    As the huge profits of the platforms are mostly driven by middle and low-income internet users, it is reasonable to expect technology companies and those billionaire and millionaire bosses to make a greater contribution to society and becoming partners in achieving common prosperity.

    A healthy society has space for freaks, but they must remain in their own bohemian niches. When they push the New Normal on the mainstream, the end result is like the West where some guy with penis and balls is said to be ‘woman’.

    Exactly. And here Hinduism shines. I have always maintained that when it comes to man-female relationships, Islam and maybe Orthodox Judaism can give the best pointers, most wisdom.

    But for Homosexuals and ‘freaks’, Hinduism found the best solution. You want to smoke ganja (marijuana) and take Shiva’s name. No problem, you have the right too. But you have a designated area where you live and do your stuff. As long as you do not disturb mainstream society, you will not be disturbed.
    You want to be a eunuch, transvestite, homosexual, gay, lesbian or 72 kinds of sexuality? No problem as long you reside and carry out your activities in designated areas of towns. As long as you do not harm/ affect the mainstream society, mainstream society does not harm you and leaves you alone. No problem.

    For leftards and anti-fa there should be no place in the White World/Japan. They need to be kicked out to the Third World or some place like Cuba, places which they admire. Instead of them importing the Third World into Whitey World, lets send them to the Third World permanently and bar them any future entry back.

    But for homos, gays and all of those types, there could be designated area. They do not affect mainstream straight society and mainstream society leaves them alone and does not harm them. Simple.

    For Whitey
    So for general economic and social policies—> National Socialism combined with some aspects of Neo-Confucianism plus city/ town level democracy-Swiss style, direct referendums.
    Male-Female relationships—-> look to Islamic/ Orthodox Jewish philosophy and solutions on this issue.
    Homos and “freaks”——-> look to Hindu philosophy and solutions on this issue.
    Religion —> positive aspects of Christianity+ European Paganism+ Zoroastrianism + positive aspects of Buddhism.

    Today’s bottom-line struggle in geopolitics is whether any entity can evade the clutches of the western central bankers. The struggle sometimes appears political, but in so many cases these manifest themselves in the form of economic sanctions imposed through New York Banks.

    That having been said, IMHO, the banks have been overplaying their hand, in the sense that political demands are now generating rebellion rather than compliance, among Russia, parts of eastern Europe, Iran, and, within the last several years, China.

    Russia is instructive, because Putin managed to cut off political subservience to the west without alienating Russia’s self-seeking oligarchs. China has an enormously stronger sense of nationhood, much less respect for Europe, and, I dare say, much more political savvy. I’ll go out on a limb and predict that the Chinese, party and oligarchs alike, will play Soros and the western finance system, more so than the other way around.

    You’re late to the party talk, Malla, because that incident involving the Chongqing police chief defecting to the US Embassy in Chengdu happened in 2012, almost a decade ago. Xi had just assumed the Presidency back then and the first thing he did was to capitalize on that incident to purge Bo Xilai and Zhou Yong-kang from the CCP, his two rivals for power in China who were planning to stage a political coup to depose Xi from the Presidency. But Xi had the support of the PLA which allowed him to consolidate his power within the CCP after launching his anti-corruption campaign targeting ‘tigers and flies’ in China.

    You’re right though that the Dengist Liberals had the support of the Wall Street/City-of-London Globalist Elites which struck a deal with the Dengist Liberals which later became the Shanghai faction of the CCP led by Jiang Zemin after the death of Deng. The power struggle between the two factions of the CCP — Maoist Communists vs Dengist Liberals — started earlier after Tiananmen in the 90s which ended with the Shanghai faction asking the Wall Street/City-of-London Globalist Elites for support by granting MFN status to and allowing WTO membership for China. The Dengist Liberals won that round against the Maoist Communists after China’s economy boomed thereafter. But the Maoist Communists staged a comeback after the GFC in 2008 when Western trade/investment collapsed overnight, which spurred the decade-long turn inward in the Chinese economy under Xi’s nationalist ideology.

    What’s happening now is Xi’s attempt to reshape Chinese society, culture, industry and economy to serve the national interest. The Chinese State will now take a more pro-active role in the private-sector by taking ownership stakes in and management control of for-profit Capitalist enterprises, especially in the Internet/e-commerce/social-media industries which are now classified as ‘Critical Information Infrastructure’ (CII) industries subject to the eminent domain of the State. Corollary to this ‘nationalist’ ideology is the Chinese State imposing restrictions if not outright bans on Chinese ‘CII’ companies listing in foreign stock exchanges such as the NYSE, HK, NASDAQ, etc.

    Xi’s crackdown on Alibaba, ANT Financial, Tencent, Meituan, Didi, etc. has nothing to do with the CCP power struggle that took place almost a decade ago. Xi’s latest moves against these foreign-invested Chinese tech giants reflect his ‘nationalist’ ideology to have the Chinese State rein in the private-sector by taking ownership stakes in and management control of for-profit Capitalist enterprises by breaking up and buying out these online monopolies in China.

There was a bandage around his cranium but a gust of wind pushed the bandage in and made clear that the bandage was covering a large hole in his skull. Incidentally this was the first human corpse I ever saw, as although I had been to funerals of dead relatives the casket was closed.

    The Shanghai faction led by Jiang Zemin took over the reins of power from Deng Xiaoping following Tiananmen, sidelining Zhao Ziyang who was the favorite pick of the Western oligarchs for supporting the student protests against the CCP. But Jiang ended up striking a deal with the Western oligarchs for China to join the WTO in order to allow Western multinationals into the Chinese market which was opposed by the Maoist Communists as represented by the Beijing faction led by Hu Jintao. While you’re partially correct in assuming that Jiang Zemin still has leverage on the Shanghai faction, his power and influence has declined since Xi’s assent to power in 2012. One reason why Xi cracked down on Jack Ma was the discovery that the grandson of Jiang Zemin controlled a private equity firm which had invested in ANT Financial before its expected listing in the HKSE. That means Jack Ma has political ties to the Shanghai faction which was deemed a threat to Xi whose latest moves against private-equity investments in the real-estate industry is another attempt to close off the loopholes by which the Dengist Kleptocracy launders their ill-gotten wealth in China. The other reason is to cut off the Chinese Internet/E-commerce/Social-Media/Fintech industry sector from foreign capital in order to protect China’s ‘Critical Information Infrastructure’ against foreign influence.

It is a classic story about two twins separated at birth when the parents were murdered (not a children’s story). I watched that updated series where you got the screenshots and did note – that even though both of the brother’s are “ladies men” (and part of the story is one girl is torn between the two brothers) – and fierce fighters – they were styled to look like the Japanese and South Korea young male celebrities. Hopefully that will be the last of that type of thing. Indeed a great story – but unfortunate make up artists.

    Zhang is not the only faction, there are many vying for power among themselves. There is also accusation against Zhang (or it is anti-Zhang propaganda) that Zhang gave up a lot of territory for Russia because of his love affair, in his youth with a Russian beauty.

    Talking of Russia, Sino-Russian relations are good and it should be too with the onslaught of the West against both. And the Russians do look at the Chinese as friends and should too but remember Putin will never trust the CCP, 100%, never 100%. Why? Because he is a KGB guy and he knows that in the past the CCP had backstabbed the USSR during the Sino-Soviet split to flirt with the USA.
    I am not saying they both should not be friends, it is in the interests of both to be, it would be extremely stupid of either side to not have this friendship. All I am saying is that Putin will never trust the CCP a 100%, there will ALWAYS be some caution.
    China buys oil from Russia (the gas pipeline has not worked out that well) at a very expensive rate. China is getting far more cheap, super cheap oil from Iran in exchange for Chinese weapons. That is why Afghanistan is so important for China, if they can get a stable pipeline from Iran to China, it solves a lot of their energy needs and the threat of the Malacca Straits or the Persian Gulf and all that becomes even less important. They have other options to circumvent these anyways including CPEC in Pakistan and their pipeline in Myanmar/Burma. Afghanistan is the shortest route to that Iranian oil.

Whata scam!!! In the UK at least there is more Government aid and intervention in the Universities, so things are a bit less bad.

    One more good move by the Chinese Government is to control the Celebrities and force them to behave upright. See in the past, people looked up to aristocrats and aristocrats had to behave properly with honour, and as gentlemen to set an example to civilized society. That supported civilizations. Now the aristocrats of our era are celebrities and if they behave bad, they have a bad influence on people which lowers civilization. People in Murica follow shits like Kardesians and you end up with millions of mini-Kardesians. Hollywood celebs behave like spoiled Satanic monkeys destroying societies.

    There are many idiots here dwelling in Unz, spewing out their profound knowledge on Xi and the alike.

    There are also many Whites here, hyping up their own downfall on Jews and the alike while downplaying their own societal problems and blaming on all others.

    There are also many pseudo Asians here, never commenting on their own respective articles on the country of supposed origin and yet claiming they’re from the country and you’d always find them in China’s articles and all other White’s ones only.

    What I suspect is, nowadays many Whites are migrating to East Asia and Asian countries and settling over there. Some have a profound knowledge on the locals and yet they don’t attach themselves with local struggle and misery of the past. That’s why you’d always see them sporadically chiming in China’s articles under the guise of XXX locals.

Lo and behold BlackRoad is not Jewish. There are 1% in the world that has no skin color, but just capital color and yet the mere mortals argue here anti-China ad infinitum.

    China is not immune to internal politics but what propels the country to its upward trajectory is the luckiest happenstance in the entire history of mankind, i.e., successive inheritance of good governance and leadership over the last couple of decades, coupled with ingenuity of Chinese people. If good governance can succeed, bad governance can also ruin its trajectory. The only hope Chinese must have is to continue the good governance rather than rampant democratic process which in itself can lead to its own demise.

    Soros is a habitual liar who often lies to the financial media to push his positions, panicking investors to sell out at bottoms so he can cover his shorts, or saying that stocks will go up forever when he is actually selling out. He even recommends that you do this regularly as a trader.

    He’s not a good person, and has not done anything to benefit anyone other than himself, almost always at the expense of others.

    Both Soros and Trump are walking sacks of shit, except that Soros has a slightly higher IQ.

    PS– I guessed that Trump would start trying to sell some of his properties when his lenders said they would not roll over his loans again into the pay- interest-only and no-capital-repayment deals he got previously.

    Looks like he wants to sell the hotel in Washington DC, but I think nobody will pay his price. Buyers will let him stew for a few more years, then get it at rock-bottom prices. This is the one that all the rich Arabs and East Euros would stay at, paying inflated room rates to curry favors from him.

    What impressed me was that one guy’s warning was so effective.

    I was finding the Chinese “inside baseball” talk interesting, as I am largely ignorant.

    I do think China is unfairly maligned in the US media, and the little I know is that they have made tremendous strides in quality of life for all. I have been following the recent market regulations on the private education industry with interest, and of course the reactions of those affected.

    I can’t really fault the government. Academia is an area rife with profiteering, corruption, and distorted markets as well. Kids need time to play. Outside. Here, too. (Side note to educators: Abolish homework, if you can’t get ‘er done in the allotted time, WTF! It is better to have kids leaving the classroom wanting to learn more on their own. Yeah, consider it a challenge. And it causes a lot of stress that is not helpful to life overall.)

    One should be able to criticize the government, and suggest improvements, without fear. Doing so publicly does entail a risk as one can never be sure how anything is received in a broader public, often containing hopped up crazies, so speaking with a screen name should also always be available.

    What should matter is the content of the message, not the identity of messenger, as long as they are legitimate. No one should expect that their actual identity is hidden from proper law enforcement inquiry.

    Advocating overthrowing the government is next level, and the system will respond a lot more harshly. This is universal. This is why I reacted earlier when it looked like to be that one guy was trying to lure some unsuspecting posters into that kind of rhetoric. They don’t need to be fodder for some overaggressive prosecutor seeking to make a career.

    If the same kind of dynamic is in play in China, I would urge any poster to exercise due caution, and even consider being patient until the environment becomes a little more tolerant, if that is the direction it is heading.

    I have a feeling there is much more to this than I am understanding.

    Well, this is where the extreme cohesion of the Chinese will serve them well. It must be pointed out that the Chinese identity is the longest-lived on Earth; at the time of the Hebrew Exodus, China had already existed for a millennium-and-a-half, probably longer.

    Nor do they lack experience dealing with infiltrating, colluding groups. Witness the ruthless suppression of the Falun Gong, and any other subversive group. If they will do this to Han, how will non-Han fare?

    The Kaifeng Jews are racially Han, but have never in almost 1,500 years been able to “blend into” China. Still looked at as alien to this day. As a result, many of their community wish to move to Israel, who will not take them in (no “right of return”). Fun fact: China does not allow dual-citizenship.

    My prognosis: The Global Cabal (and their puppet, the American Deep State) will grow extremely frustrated at their inability to subvert China from within, and so they will seek to destroy the Chinese race from without. I say “race”. though they claim only to be against the “government”, but they really mean race. Does anyone doubt this?

    The funny thing about Chinese versus Jews is that the Jews cannot fall back on crying “antisemitism” when dealing with China (though, I’m sure they’ll try). If Jews even try to use victimhood mentality ID-politics by harking back to the Holocaust, the Chinese can point out that they have suffered many times more victims during that period (around 20 million deaths) compared to the Jews (6 million deaths) and were equally put into concentration camps and experimented upon (see: Unit 731). Furthermore, the Chinese can point out that they saved a multitude of Jewish refugees (see: Shanghai Jews) during WW2, so any complaints from Jews about Chinese antisemitism can be called out as ungratefulness from the Jewish side.

    For every “manly” shounen or seinen anime you pull out, there is a counter shoujo — or worse, Boys Love 💕 — anime.

    The same goes for China. For every whitewashed danmei-based xiaoxianrou drama there’s a Wolf Warrior counterpart to be found.

    Chinese pop culture copied both the Korean Hallyu Wave boy band (xiaoxianrou) aesthetics and the Japanese Boys Love (danmei) melodrama and then synthesized the two into one unholy female guilty pleasure that in the last couple of years pumped out gems such as Guardian (2018), The Untamed (2019), Word of Honor (2021), etc. because it sells to young middle-class Asian girls and women.

    All this apparent gayness comes from female driven pop culture consumption. The west has its own sissy counterparts (e.g. One Direction, Justin Bieber), but the difference is that it is less extreme and hasn’t broken into mainstream as thoroughly as is the case in East Asia.

    On the big picture, all the big martial arts stars in China have become too old and/or retire and the new youngers aren’t up to the task. I guess the last big wuxia I like in China is Brotherhood of the Blades 1+2.

    They could look at the German model where children not interested in higher education could enter training for a trade.

    Unless the German model has changed in recent years, higher education, whether university, technical schools, or trade schools, were restricted to best and brightest based on academics. “Streaming” into the different programmes started at around age 13. Limited spots meant that students understood they had to work hard just to get a shot at gaining entrance the school.
    As an aside, I was acquainted with several people who repaired medical equipment, and were sent to the manufacturers to learn the equipment repair. They described going to the US as light on learning heavy on socializing. When they went to Germany (or occasionally Israel) it was long days of learning and hands on experience for the time there. There were times they were too tired to socialize in the evening. There was nothing they didn’t know about what they had to repair.

    More evidence that in China, the Government rules, and the parasites follow orders, the antithesis of the West. And why China would accelerate far out of sight if not for the obvious drive of the Western ruling psychopaths to destroy China and end its rise, come what may.

    I agree, but, as the Corbyn experience shows, the lying Talmudic/Zionazi/Judeofascistic thugs can accuse anyone, even Yahweh himself, of being ‘antisemitic’. Corbyn was a lifelong anti-racist and friend of numerous Jews, yet he was lynched with a campaign of vicious lying of a quite deranged intensity, aided and abetted by the human filth of the MSM. Here in Austfailia the Zionazis who infest our MSM, particularly the Murdoch cancer, are notable for their furious, racist, hatred of China. Let’s hope that they will finally bite off more than they can chew.

    So rumor has it that China has slowed down or halted the approval of new online games:

    This will probably cut deep into Tencent and NetEase’s pockets, so it’s probably a good thing.

    I’m playing Tales of Arise right now and it’s amazing. I hope the chinese devs can make single player RPG at that caliber, that would be better than 100 gacha/online games they have right now.

    China wants to promote physical fitness for its young citizens and plans to have a bigger sports industry by 2025:

    Xi also wants China to become a ‘football superpower’ by 2050:

    Xi would rather see Chinese youth playing football and working out in the gym than staring at computer screens playing online games all day.

  222. But when it comes to the topic of China, Soros is blinded by ideology and the bitterness of his repeated past failures in attempting to “short” China’s currency, the yuan. His vested interests blind him from recognizing that what he wants from China is not necessarily what is right for the country or its people.

    The answer is no, because the other critique of Soros’ comments is that he presumes what he says is good for the market, and what’s good for his interests, is preferential to the needs of the country as a whole.

    The very idea that China could possibly take a different path from the “destined trajectory to liberalisation,” which commenced in 1978, and prosper from it, is blasphemy in Western political circles….

    … His failed bets on the yuan show how wrong he’s been, and he risks turning himself into a very wealthy version of Gordon Chang, the discredited American author who, like some fanatical evangelical repeatedly warning ‘the end is nigh,’ has been predicting China’s collapse for two decades. During which time the country, as the BBC puts it, has become the world’s ‘economic miracle’.

    Soros is not just shorting currency, he’s shorting his own credibility by taking bets on the imminent demise of a political system that just doesn’t make sense to him, but does to hundreds of millions of Chinese, as well as a lot of smart overseas investors.

    I would have thought it was created by the Canadian left? Fits them to the letter.

  224. It is difficult to explain the difference in political mindset between the US and other countries, particularly the mid 1990s, but the difference between Canada is narrowing. None of the 3 main political parties were keen on immigration, until the late 1960s when the centrist (allegedly) Liberal party decided nation killing multiculturalism should be official policy. Previously, the Liberals had leaders that had nationalized the privately owned central bank, restricted Chinese, Japanese, and Indian immigration. Immigration of Blacks, other than from the US was negligible, except those who came post revolution or via the Underground Railway for slaves. All political parties understood Canadians were opposed to immigration that would change the nature of Canada, and that, a more a century ago, included Eastern and Mediterranean Europeans. The “right” Progressive Conservatives were largely what were called “red” Tories, were more successful provincially than federally. They were populist and believed that government, while being fiscally responsible, should play a meaningful role in people’s lives. Many provinces have (and had) government owned public utilities that were formed when the private sector started gouging the government for services. The governments formed their own telephone or electric companies for government use. They expanded to the population in general when the private sector businesses were put up for sale, or refused to provide services in remote areas. There were no expropriations.
    The “left”, never elected federally, were traditionally the most fiscally responsible, taking governments out of debt created by the other parties.
    To put that in context, a co-worker and her husband left the US first for the UK, then Canada when Reagan was elected. When the ” left” Clinton was elected they felt comfortable returning to the US. When I said to her that Clinton was “right” of Reagan’s buddy Canadian PM (Lyin’) Brian Mulroney, a “conservative” she agreed and said Clinton was as “left” as the American population would tolerate. The last 35 years in Canadian politics has been a sea change in the mindset of politics in Canada, and not for the better. The shift has been to ideologues and a US style with the focus on presenttion rather than substance. In reality it leads to all parties professing to stand for almost everything. When you stand for everything, you stand for nothing.

    China’s National Radio and Television Administration (NRTA) on Thursday held a meeting urging the television industry to boycott adaption of boys’ love novels, as well as to avoid tax evasion and stick to realistic works amid the nation’s drive for comprehensive regulation of entertainment.

    The NRTA also asked industry practitioners to strictly carry out the rules on actors’ paycheck caps, to rule out dual contracts and other tax evasion tricks, to make TV dramas with a positive influence and stop the viewership-priority mindset, “fan culture” problems and swarming to boys’ love adaptations.

    Boys’ love, a novel genre whose adaptation to TV drama turned out to be a big success, usually depicts blossoming romances between young men. Legendary drama The Untamed, starring Xiao Zhan and Wang Yibo, and Word of Honor, starring Zhang Zhehan and Gong Jun, are among the most famous ones.

    Holy based, gay xianxia is over!

    Manly wuxia is back! Xi Jinping is my hero!
