…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
There are subjects which, at least for me, follow from each other. Yesterday we had here the article about hundreds and thousands “New Europeans” abandoning colonialist-free, independent Africa and today I noticed something about Communist China.
I know it is futile to write for the simple progies, who, having no knowledge of history, and, suffering from low IQ, are unable to think, their PhDs in feminine hygiene or the sexual habits colonially oppressed Haitians notwithstanding. They never stop to think why what they are so proud to call the socialism a.k.a progress, caused and causes so much misery to the very people they allegedly fight for, or to use the currently fashionable vernacular, “feel the pain” of.
I read that Chinese tourists, naturally not the ones from Republic of China, (in only one week in February this year 450,000 mainland Chinese came visiting) cart home from Japan the so called “four treasures” – rice cookers, vacuum flasks, ceramic knives and toilet seats. Yes, look at this again – rice cookers, vacuum flasks, ceramic knives and toilet seats. So after sixty six years of command economy the (rich) Chinese have to import toilet seats from WW II defeated Japan.
Beside the material achievements, the tourists admire Japan’s pristine environment and clean air; and I dare to say, wonder about the benefits or otherwise of one party rule.
Mainland China started its Marx-Engels decreed historically inevitable progress in 1949 and for most of that time could not produce enough rice to feed itself. One way or the other, the regime managed to kill est.65 million of its people. Progies in the media and academe either rejoiced or, those slightly more honest, looked away.
Simpletons in the West still march with posters “Socialism is the answer” and sing the Internationale.
