Planting white lies, western narratives and agenda into the heads of the unthinking and unwary

Many innocent readers, especially the English educated whose main source of news is from western media, would unwittingly be victims of western propaganda and white lies without knowing it unless they are conscious and critical of what they read. It is so easy to plant ideas, lies and narratives to the readers and over time these would become the talking points of the readers. They would talk about these narratives and assume the same thought process, with the agenda and phrases planted into their heads.

Many bananas, some highly trained and educated, even the supposedly critical community of journalists and academics, are passive victims to the western agenda and narratives. If one does not look at the world with one’s own eyes and look at them critically from one’s own interest and perspective, it is very easy to go with the trend, discuss or think about things that the western media want them to think and talk about, using their terminologies and their versions of the truth or their alternate truths.

Some of the common trends of thoughts and phrases are debt traps, an assertive China that is bad, China bashing, the Axis of Evil etc etc. The West is repeating the trap idea for China bashing while China is offering aids and knowhow to help the poorer countries. Aids and cheap loans are needed by the poorer countries to drive their economies to better the lives of their people. They need money and knowhow from somewhere and the givers are their benefactors.

Today, the benefactors like China are not colonialists or imperialists that came with guns to conquer and rob the countries at gun points. The aids, loans etc etc are negotiated and accepted on a willing buyer willing seller basis. There is no coercion or force or threats applied in these deals unlike colonial times when the victims had no choice, could not bargain or negotiate. The white masters, the invaders dictated the terms.

The idea of debt trap is created by the West to smear China while refusing to look at the benefits China brought to the rest of the world. There would be some that fell into debt traps, some due to corruption, some self inflicted, some due to mistakes or mismanagement, not intended in the agreements. These countries would not have signed on the dotted lines if they did not agree or if the terms were unfair to them. For every country that fell into a debt trap, there are tens of countries that are very happy with the aids and loans from China. If the Chinese assistance is so bad, they would have turned to the IMF or World Bank or their ex colonial masters for help. The Chinese aids and loans must be very much more attractive to these poorer nations for them to go to Beijing instead of the West.

Another example is that China is an expansionist power, an aggressive or militant power, Communist regime therefore bad. The latter need no explanation if one is willing to open one’s eyes to see the wars the Americans are conducting and engaged in. As for expansionist China, just ask what expansionist means. The US is all over the world, from the eastern Pacific Ocean to the western Pacific Ocean, from the western Atlantic Ocean to the eastern Atlantic Ocean and into central Asia.

Look at a chess board for easy analogy. The whole chess board is occupied by the USA with China in a corner with 2 or 3 squares. This is the current status quo or balance of power in the world. The Americans have expanded and occupied all the squares in a chess board except for a few in a corner left for China. Why is it that no one is talking about American expansion? And why is China called an expansionist power when it is trying to push back to take back a few squares from the Americans when the Americans have taken practically everything?

No, the western media would only look at China trying to move out of its little corner as expansionist. The occupation of the rest of the chess board is their normal. China cannot move out of its corner, it is expansionist. This is their narrative, their world, the American Empire. China cannot share the rest of the world except to confine to its little corner, within its land borders.

For the unthinking, they would accept this as the reality and status quo. Changing the status quo is bad. Therefore China is bad. This is the result of reading the western media unthinkingly and accepting the western truth and western lies and seeing the world from the perspective of the West as the Empire that rules the world.

Should this be the status quo, the accepted state of things? Why is it so wrong and so expansionist for China to want a few more squares to move more freely and breathe a bit more fresh air? Why is China’s financial and economic aid to the rest of the world be just about debt traps and not about helping these countries that needed the aid and the assistance from China? The ex colonies of the West have been exploited, robbed, looted and kept in various stages of underdevelopment by the West. China is giving them an opportunity to move out of their poverty trap caused by the West. Is this bad?

It is very dangerous not to think and see the world in one’s own perspective. It is even more dangerous to see the world in other people’s perspective without knowing that one is also a victim in the bigger scheme of things. It is silly not to know that one’s thinking and view of the world are being planted and dictated by others and against one’s interests in the long run.

Do not become unwitting accomplices of the West in China bashing. Do not allow the West to tell you what to think, what to say, and how to think.

PS. The country that is suffering from the biggest debt trap is the USA. And they are very happy about it, growing their debt bubble. Of course they could get away with it by printing more money out of nothing.

I’d side with rich China over fickle US: Malaysia’s Mahathir Mohamad

If forced to take sides in the high-stakes geopolitical rivalry and trade war between the United States and China, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad would prefer the economic largesse of Beijing.

He pointed to the current state of unpredictability of the American superpower as a negative factor when asked about the impact of Sino-American tensions on other, smaller nations in the region.

In particular, he said Malaysia would not be swayed by Western scaremongering that the Chinese telecom firm Huawei was involved in spying.

“When China was poor, we were frightened of China. When China is rich, we are also frightened of China,” he said. “I think we have to find some way to deal with China.”

“We always say, we have had China as a neighbour for 2,000 years, we were never conquered by them. But the Europeans came in 1509, in two years, they conquered Malaysia.”

@ RB,

As usual you go ad hominem instead of looking the hard numbers and facts.

The USD will eventually be replaced, but not anytime soon. You forget (to mention?) that the USD is the world’s reserve currency, and so they HAVE TO print (borrow from foreigners) to supply the world with USDs. The moment the Fed tapers, cuntries like India, Malaysia, Indonesia etc. backside koyak cosos they are exposed to debt denominated in USD.

This exorbitant privilege has been roundly criticised by everyone, including US allies, and even by their own economists like Bob Triffin (he’s Belgian but emigrated to the US) famous for Triffin’s Dilemma/ Paradox. Despite that and the technical insolvency of trillions in debt, the USD is still king.

Chinna has many BIg Levers it can pull, and they do, especially Xi, who is expansionist. There is nothing wrong with that. They have made it clear they are going to be #1 by a certain date, and they are on that path. That means they have to ramp up investment, productivity, militarily, become more “relevant” and powerful in global politics --- disrupting and interfering with other cuntries’ domestic politics (to get them to be more “China friendly”), and most importantly act in accordance to their own objectives and rules and disregard (as far as possible) any PUSH BACK from the rest of the world.

China has to grab territory where it can. It has to do what westerners and their media judge (by their own double-standards) “unconscionable things” (surveillance, cyber attacking, punishing “stubborn cuntries” like australia and Canada) if it is to become the leading economic and military super power in the the near future.

Consistent behaviour and thinking:
Redbean seems to believe that China is the “nice guy” just going about its business “peacefully”, and that they will eventually succeed through “friendliness”. He will quote chapter and verse about China’s history and his interpretation of Chinese culture (which is way different from the CCP and Emperor Xi’s version of Chinese culture)
What fucking planet are you living on mate?? 🤣

I have an amoral, pragmatic worldview, in line with my basic philosophy of not giving a single shit about stuff beyond my control. If people are killing each other, I don’t really care as long as they’re not killing me. 😆 If there's a profit opportunity there, I might have a go. So I don’t have a problem with China playing a hard and fast game and disrupting the world, making developed nations shit their pants and gabrak. And then people like Trump and his wingman John Bolton come into the picture, posing a “Black Swan” (and the western MSM) problem for China’s objectives. *Actually the anti-China MSM has always been there. Those fuckers need to sell news to make money, so they will tell the stories which cause the gullible hordes to make ongoing revenues.

China’s debt
kaninabuchowcheebye lah RB! Granted, the western media has been all over the above. But the folks who raised the alarm over and over about Chinese mountainous debt levels are The Peoples’ Bank Of China (central bank) THEMSELVES.
Rich Chinese love their money, and they --- being SMARTER than the average Jo--- don’t trust the govt, although they do love their cuntry. (sound familiar?)

Despite strict capital controls, the rich Chinese manage to get their money out and buy, buy, buy assets in Singapore, Australia, Canada, US, UK...anything but China because they are aware of the economic and financial RISKS . As I say “follow the money”. Especially the “smart money”.

I had one such client --- a young, fit and rich 45 year old “China Rich” guy. He plonked down over 20 mill for a fabulous home in District 10, but whilst it was being built stayed at The Capella, Sentosa paying 1.1 million in rent a year for a villa. 🤑 It is thru the many hours of conversation with him that I got stuff you won’t find in the MSM, and definitely not in the state-controlled Chinese MSM.

The gist: These people are SERIOUS and nothing is off the table for them to achieve their objective of becoming #1 Oh and BTW, he was less than complimentary about Singaporeans, although he loves living in Singapore. Judging by the 3 supercars he has garaged, he has contributed a sizeable chunk in COE to our treasury. On behalf of my cuntry, Thank you sire! 😂

Anyway, Emperor Xi has an upcoming surprise for these rich Chinese expatriates. Really hardcore capital controls. Xi is going to enact laws to FORCE rich Chinese to liquidate their overseas assets and return the money to China, under penalty of law (which means Xi is not fucking around).

That would do 2 things:
1. Cause overseas markets to be over-supplied with assets
2. Boost the amount of capital in China, which means their markets are likely to trend UPWARDS, and also reduce the likelihood of “liquidity defaults” because now they’ll have more money in the system, which could allow the PBOC to taper, reducing their own exposure and risk.

I’m betting on this. As usual, all opinion is just opinion, until one backs up one’s convictions with CAPITAL.

Xi has no choice. The rate of increase in debt is faster than China’s GDP growth, which has been downgraded for some time already, and exacerbated by Trump’s tariff war. Xi needs these rich fuckers’ money. And he’s not the first leader in history to force rich people into paying up “for the national interest”. So no, it’s got nothing to do with race-bashing as RB would immediately (default state lah) suggest. It is the national interest...the reduction of the likelihood of a severe financial shock to China. Eat The Rich! lah. 😂

What To Expect From American Empire In Retreat,

Article by WN.Com Correspondent Dallas Darling

“The price of empire,” wrote J. William Fulbright, “is America’s soul, and that price is too high.” Consequently, the U.S. senator from Arkansas had known this for some time.

He not only saw how McCarthyism and the House Un-American Activities Committee had torn America’s soul in two, but he became known for his fervent opposition to America’s involvement in Vietnam.
As the longest serving chairman in the history of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he also delivered a speech calling on the U.S. to adapt itself to a world that was both changing and complex, and leaving America behind.

Since any empire that’s founded by war must maintain itself by war, the American empire and its military are both a shell of their former selves. They may still seem to be functioning, but the extent of their retreat is clearly revealed by examining their influence in the different regions of the world.

From the Americas and Europe to Africa and the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region, there are many goals that aren’t being achieved. As for a few successes, they’ve been outweighed by American irrelevance and the many cases of outright failure – deadly and costly ones at that.

Retreating from The Americas-At Home and Abroad

Because the U.S. empire began in the Americas, specifically North America with the young Republic, it’s expected this is where it would last the longest. But even now cracks are starting to appear.

In “1984,” George Orwell imagined the exploitation of those living in an empire most subject to its intoxication. He warned it not only imposed itself most successfully on people incapable of understanding it, but they could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality. This is because they can never fully grasp the enormity of what was demanded of them. They simply swallowed everything.

Many Americans are testing this imposed reality, no longer swallowing everything. Feeling cut off from the empire and its spoils of war, and what they believe to be their inherited and natural birthright as American citizens, they’re sensing a deep collective wound. It’s the wound of a declining empire, and it’s exposing the dark, raw emotions of rage, hatred, envy and despair which lacks patriotism. This goes for a growing white underclass and a youthful generation. To be sure, and since the fate of empires depends on the education of youth, the future of America’s empire looks very bleak.

Something else that looks bleak is U.S. leadership across Latin America. Countries that were close allies have defied any modest successes that America has tried to impose. Canada and Mexico have bucked American trade policies. What should’ve been an easy coup in Venezuela is now becoming a nightmare for U.S. policymakers.

The same goes for a new Russian and Cuban Cold War alliance, where Russia just stationed long-range bombers. There are the BRICS nations, too, with a new currency and China taking the lead. It’s made inroads into Brazil, Nicaragua and Haiti, and many other Latin American nations.

🍌 Dissert said...

A Lost Empire in Search of New Roles

Since the Cold War, Europe has been willing to play a supportive role in the American empire. This, too, may be coming to an end. The rift over President Donald Trump’s view of NATO, the Paris Climate Agreement and the 18-year war in Afghanistan has caused Europe to question their junior partnership and dependence on U.S. security.

Another sticking point is Ukraine and Iran. With Russia’s recent takeover of Crimea, European nations are wondering why the U.S. hasn’t taken stronger actions. There’s a disagreement over Europe’s P5+1 treaty with Iran as well, in which the U.S. reneged on.

One necessary condition of the American empire has always been superior power. Sub-Saharan Africa is no different. And yet, the U.S. is finding it hard to protect its interests. It’s not only locked in a continuous battle against dozens of Islamic groups in Nigeria, Somalia and Chad, but some 100 other missions across 20 African nations. Nor is it a match for China’s new role: Economic development and enhanced cooperation. Or the view, “Numerous grains of earth make a mountain, numerous drops of water form an ocean.” This may win out over America’s empire and history of militarism.

In the Middle East, a new Russia-Turkey-Iran alliance is also winning out over America’s archaic role. This, despite overthrowing the Ba’athists in Iraq, Afghanistan’s Taliban, and Libya’s Muammar al-Ghaddhafi. These and other promising futures never transpired, with the results far from what imperial America expected.

But Russia, Turkey and Iran transpired, working jointly on economic projects and military exercises. America’s client states in the region have moreover become increasingly reluctant to an empire’s bidding. Offering Saudi Arabia nuclear secrets makes America look that much more desperate.

🍌 Dessert said...

To Foresee the Future, Look At The Past

Another hotspot is the Asia-Pacific, a region where American power was projected for more than two centuries. But America’s accumulated territories, protectorates and client states are reconsidering their alliances. This is because of the Trump Administration’s rejection of the Trans-Pacific Partnership and China’s ascendancy – again. America’s policy towards China has actually moved from paternalism to containment. Containing China is proving to be impossible – and improbable. Its economic strength, its geography and its cultural ties to the region is replacing America as the hegemonic power in the Asia-Pacific.

Will Durant wrote, “Empires won by conquest have always fallen either by revolt within or by defeat by a rival.” He, too, should know, since he wrote: “The Story of Civilization.”

In his 11-volume set, he specifically mentioned the one thing which caused the collapse of the Roman Empire. It was a series of bad emperors. Emperors who were not only after their own wealth, power and aggrandizement, but reflected a narcissistic, sociopathic personality. This included repulsive behavior, such as lying, impulsiveness, bullying, violent rhetoric and an inability to sort out illusion from reality.

Some political experts believe this description fits Trump. He, too, fears a loss of supremacy, of his place in the world as embodied through America. His self-image, subject to inflation, arrogance and a morphing into hubris, is even more dangerous. So is his belief in his own invincibility and America’s exceptionalism. It’s quite possible his “Make America Great Again” was a compensatory antidote to the America empire in retreat. When this part of his and his followers’ collective psyche is activated, it can only sow the seeds of its own destruction. A slow and painful one which knows no limits.

It’s clear then America’s imperial presence has been waning.

The Trump Administration’s tracking of journalists and human rights activists at the border, or its ruthless attacks against opponents, shows a weakened president and regime. So does its imaginary relationship with North Korea and their supposed destruction of nuclear weapons. Guantanamo Bay’s illegal expansion in Cuba and the recolonization of Venezuela are simply more signs of a bygone empire trying to hold on to the past. A past which continues to learn the price of empire and its militarism is too high.

I dislike his very strong support of Independent Taiwan policy. I think it's not nice of him to get so involved in this area, after all he is not a traditional Taiwan resident.

Roy's comment is a perfect example of an unthinking banana. Everything he said above is copied or parroted from western media. They set the agenda for him and made him said this thing unconsciously.

Now that he is in Taiwan, the Taiwan thinking is affecting him immediately. A person that did not have deep thinking and historical background would easily be influenced by the agenda of the day perpetuated in the media and in his circle of contacts. They keep writing and talking and soon many would take that as the new truth.

Beijing's flagship initiative, which aims to develop new trade routes through major infrastructure projects such as airports and roads, has been described by critics as Chinese expansionism.' Yahoo News

The evil Americans are trying their best to disrupt the BRI projects in Afghanistan and again accusing China of expansionism. China is build roads and rails and cities along the BRI while the Americans are conducting wars in Afghanistan.

In the same Yahoo News report, it said, 'The United States has sought to challenge the Chinese scheme but the initiative continues to draw support. On Monday, Italy said it would sign a memorandum of understanding to officially support the Belt and Road Initiative.

More than 123 countries have signed agreements to cooperate with China under the program,....'

To the evil Americans, war is good, building roads and rails and infrastructure is bad. Countries should spend more time and money on wars and buy American weapons of mass destruction.

@ RB

The situation is a lot more "nuanced" than most people realise. I've noticed your response to criticism or negative commentary about China is either:

1. Evil westerners and their media spreading white lies
2. Unthinking bananas who cannot think clearly and are shills for their western overlords

Mate, broken record much? 😂🤣

OK, back to the issue --- debt trap. IMO (opinion, not truth ok?) using Sri Lanka as an example --- the bloody shithole cuntry already carries foreign debt that it is struggling to pay. China turns up, offers them even more money to build and operate a port, and they addicted to loans like a junkie is addicted to heroin accept the loan and the TERMS offered by China.

If people choose to be in denial, what the fuck can you do? China is not to blame lah. I keep saying over and over, they have made their objectives very fucking CLEAR. But the usual human trait is to only hear the good stuff. If you take money, you automatically take on OBLIGATION.

Li Ka-shing is/was part owner of toll roads in Australia. He put up the money, he gets a pay-day. Yet, people get mad because "some foreigner is bleeding us". Kaninah, you took HIS money lah! The UK, USA and every imperial western power did exactly similar things. When the US reebuilt post-war Japan, American financial interests masuk the Jap economy. When Inodnesia liberalised their formwrly NATIONALISED domestic fuel market, Shell, Exon and the rest of the oil-gangsters masuk the market, and of course people complain.

You take foreigners' money, you're on the hook for some form of "return on their investment". Don't like? Then don't take the money. Stay poor, happy and strive to be the best shithole cuntry of all the shithole cuntries lah.

Despite the different angles, RB and Matilah are really on the same page when it comes to China issues.
To RB, China is always correct and never evil about their investment strategies, because BY COMPARISON it is infinitely better than USA war and regime change agenda. I agree 100%!
To Matilah, China cannot be wrong, or even evil, 'cos this is just a business deal, and "evil" or "human rights" are nebulous and non existent fabrications. I agree 100% too!!
In conclusion, i do agree too that Roy has a convoluted and untenable agenda on his extreme anti China stance. However, I am not sure it's because he has no knowledge of China history (as alluded by mr. RB) that makes him steer this way. Many Taiwanese or Hongkong people who do have the necessary China background/culture, are supporting pro Independence of Taiwan/HKG...(no thanks to Roy's idol Tsai Ying Wen). I think it makes no sense. Like it or not HKG and Twn belong to China, neither should hide under the skirt of America. This is a Chinese issue and internal affair.
