#Tuân Tử, #Xunzi, #Karl Marx, #work according to ability, #get according to needs, #pretend work, #pretend to have satisfied all needs, #Russia, #Soviet Union, #China, #Venezuela

1. Tuân Tử (Xunzi)’s teaching and Karl Marx’ theory.

Tuân Tử (荀子; 313 BC – 238 BC; Xunzi = Xun Kuang (/ˈʃʊn ˈkwɑːŋ/; Chinese: 荀況; pinyin: Xún Kuàng [ɕy̌n kʰwâŋ]; c. 310 – c. 235 BC, alt. c. 314 – c. 217 BC) [1, 1b] was an Oriental philosopher during the Warring State Period of ancient China, he said more than 2200 years ago: “Human beings are instinctively cruel, selfish” (Xunzi believed that humanity’s inborn tendencies were evil, Tuân Tử: “Nhân chi sơ tính bản ác”).

Karl Marx advocated a Communist World led by proletariat,

Marx predicted the demise of capitalism through a workers’ revolution that would lead to a utopian “classless society” where, according to Marx, “people work according to their ability and get according to their needs” and “in which the free development of each is the condition for the free development of all.” [2]

2. Karl Marx’ societies in practice.

2a- The Russian communist revolution led by Stalin wanted to set up that World. Here are some of the results:

Trotsky [3] got assassinated by his former comrade.

Communist cadres deposed the small capitalists, took their privileged positions and enjoyed the positions themselves, the lower classes are still not better off [4].

2b- In “Communist” China, the students espousing Karl Marx’ theory and practice are paradoxically arrested for preaching Karl Marx’s theory to poor workers ! [5, 6, 7].

There is also a criticism about the states of the poor workers:

“During the Mao Zedong years, China was a poor socialist country. Now China is a poor capitalist country. Overall, the average Chinese did not get the benefit,” he said. [7b, 7c]

3. Deficiency of Karl Marx’ theory

Karl Marx’ teaching could not address one of human long known characteristics of being cruel and selfish.

This unaddressed issue has turned Karl Marx’ dream society into one where people pretend to work, the state pretends to have satisfied all their needs. and power pampers, corrupts officials while neglecting low level workers.

4. Even attempting to look Marxist had made Venezuela bankrupt.

Venezuela is an oil rich country. It wanted to set up a “Socialist” political system. Its inflation is now rampant and its people are running around for food.

The recovery of oil prices in the early 2000s gave Venezuela oil funds not seen since the 1980s. The government then established populist social welfare policies that initially boosted the economy and increased social spending reducing economic inequality and poverty. However, such… policies later became inadequate, causing the nation’s collapse as their excesses—including a uniquely extreme fossil fuel subsidy—are widely blamed for destabilizing the … economy.

The destabilized economy led to a crisis resulting in hyperinflation, an economic depression, shortages of basic goods and drastic increases in unemployment, poverty, disease, child mortality, malnutrition and crime.

By 2017, Venezuela was declared to be in default In 2018, the country’s economic policies led to extreme hyperinflation, with estimates expecting an inflation rate of 1,370,000% by the end of the year. [8]

5. Conclusion.

Karl Marx’s theory cannot be applied to any nation on this earth.

Debating against propagandists

Debating against propagandists.

(Blog No.20x).

#debate rules, #propagandist, #dis-ambiguity, #morphing argument,

magnifier horizontal

This art requires strict discipline. A debater against propagandists must set down the following rules to protect fairness to himself and to his cause:

1. All debate will be promptly and RUDELY finished for any debate participant violating the mutually agreed debating rules.

2. The mutually agreed debating rules should be clearly laid out and should include:

2a- Only one person should talk at a time.

2b- No unneeded attribute should be made against the opposing side.

For example:

The addressing mode “Mr A” is acceptable but “The arrogant Mr. A” is not acceptable in any debate between Mr. A and a propagandist.

2c- Questions and answers must be alternated between debating participants to give an apparent sense of fairness.

Reporters should only be allowed to ask questions and should not be allowed to debate with interviewees. (Some BBC “reporters” have now become actually debaters, asking questions but not letting interviewees giving answers/replies).

2d- Any reply must be (in English) understandable by any 8th grader (the old standard for legal document) shorter than 100 words and should be no longer than 3 minutes.

2e. Any reply full of self-referential argument must be re-phrased in concise statements to be (in English) understandable by any 8th grader (the old standard for legal document) shorter than 100 words and should be no longer than 3 minutes.

2f- The re-phrasal should preferably be then summarized by the other side in his own term to avoid any terminology trap.

2g- All reply must end up with a definite answer to the question asked. The answer must be

some required word or a

“Yes”,

“No”, or

“I don’t know” or “I am not sure”.

2h- During the reply by one side the other side must keep absolutely quiet until the responder has exceeded his allocated reply time or has declared that his reply has ended.

Beware of the jeering crowds: Propagandists are often accompanied by their own jeering crowds to insult their opponents. This is also often seen in Australian Parliament with the “honorable” parliamentarians forming undesirable disorderly jeering crowds. Their jeer-words are usually “racist”, “Nazist”, “sexist”, “xenophobe”, “homophobe”, “**phobe”, “anti-**”, and lately “deplorable”.

2i- Even the two questions allowed to reporters at press conferences have to conform to these rules.

“A journalist called upon to ask a question will ask a single question and then will yield the floor to other journalists;
At the discretion of the President or other White House official taking questions, a follow-up question or questions may be permitted; and where a follow up has been allowed and asked, the questioner will then yield the floor;
‘Yielding the floor’ includes, when applicable, physically surrendering the microphone to White House staff for use by the next questioner;
Failure to abide by any of rules (1)-(3) may result in suspension or revocation of the journalist’s hard pass.”

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/curtis-houck/2018/11/19/citing-acosta-wh-releases-rules-journalists-follow-or-risk-losing

https://papundits.wordpress.com/2018/11/21/citing-acosta-wh-releases-rules-for-journalists-to-follow-or-risk-losing-press-credentials/

3- Dis-ambiguity is essential in any debate against propagandists.

For example, it must be clarified whether the attribute Z mentioned by a propagandist means:
a- a religion or
b- a race, an ethnic group or
c- a nationality,
and different replies are given according to different meanings.

Do NOT allow a propagandist to morph his argument from one meaning to another to derail and ridicule your argument.

Soviet officials have been said to be quite good at this dis-ambiguity on their immigration works while English officials are hopelessly unable to make any dis-ambiguity.

The following are examples of propagandists morphing the language to ridicule their opponents with their accompanying jeering crowds.

Worried about Islamic immigration? Racist

The one huge problem with multiculturalism

The key words to note are Islamic and racist. The answer should be:

You are confused between religions and races.

Don’t like how your community has turned from English speaking to Chinese, Vietnamese, or Arabic? Racist.

The one huge problem with multiculturalism

The key words to note are English, Chinese, Vietnamese, Arabic languages and racist. The answer should be:

You are confused between national languages, national coherence and races. We respect each of Chinese, Vietnamese, or Arabic languages, but in our country we expect everyone to speak a common language so that we can know what each other communicates, thinks and expects. Common language makes national coherence.

Worried that our immigration system is eroding all that remains of the Anglo-European aesthetic of Australian communities? Racist.

The one huge problem with multiculturalism

The key words to note are Anglo-European aesthetic and racist.The answer should be:

You are confused between national culture, national norm, national values and races. We built this nation from the Anglo-European aesthetic of Australian communities and we want to preserve it. So do the people of nations of other cultures, they also want to preserve theirs in their own nations.

4. The use of any evidence beyond those cited in encyclopedias must be agreed upon in prior. The evidence must be equally accessible by both sides with adequate time to examine their authenticity. Otherwise refuse to take at face value any evidence supplied by propagandists.

Example:

Propagandist: Australia had decided to go multi-cultural.

The meaning of multiculturalism has changed significantly since its formal introduction to Australia. Originally … as a need for acceptance that many members of the Australian community originally came from different cultures and still had ties to it. However, it came to mean the rights of migrants … to express their cultural identity. [7]

Debater must refute that statement at face value: Who decided ? Have the people been asked in any referendum ? It has not been in the constitution or any national law.

Remember that propagandists will stop at nothing. To fool people, they are ready to fabricate false “evidence”, apply selective justice and employ all methods to silence their critics (“laws” against criticizing their arguments, Denial of Service attacks against opponent websites and even murders of their critics).

Please see the notes and references [8, 9] added after 2018 Dec. 05.

5. The use of any theory, terminology beyond the understanding of 8th graders in any debate must be agreed upon in prior. The theory must be equally accessible by both sides.

Example: Karl Marx’s books or Mao Tse Tung’s books must be readily available to both sides. Any special interpretation must also be available to both sides before debate.

6. Use exactly the past arguments by a propagandist against his current own argument.

Leftists advocated North Vietnam waging war in South Vietnam because South Vietnam did not carry out the referendum for re-unification agreed in Geneva 1954.

Debaters against leftists should use that same argument of NO FREE ELECTION to support Arabian Spring or colour revolutions and attack their defending of Iraqi S. Hussein and Libyan M. M. A. M. Gaddafi.

Goebbels’s Principles

Reich Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, left an account in his diary of the tactics used to promote the Nazi cause. These principles are reprinted below as summarized by Leonard W. Doob in his essay, Goebbels’ Principles of Propaganda.

https://thepropagandaproject.wordpress.com/goebbels%E2%80%99s-principles/

[2]. https://thepropagandaproject.wordpress.com/goebbels%E2%80%99s-principles/

The purpose of reprinting these tactics is to recognize just how universally applicable they are and to draw parallels to current forms of persuasion.
PRINCIPLE 1: PROPAGANDISTS MUST HAVE ACCESS TO INTELLIGENCE CONCERNING EVENTS AND PUBLIC OPINION
PRINCIPLE 2: PROPAGANDA MUST BE PLANNED AND EXECUTED BY ONLY ONE AUTHORITY
PRINCIPLE 3: THE PROPAGANDA CONSEQUENCES OF AN ACTION MUST BE CONSIDERED IN PLANNING THAT ACTION
PRINCIPLE 4: PROPAGANDA MUST AFFECT THE ENEMY’S POLICY AND ACTION
PRINCIPLE 5: DECLASSIFIED, OPERATIONAL INFORMATION MUST BE AVAILABLE TO IMPLEMENT A PROPAGANDA CAMPAIGN
PRINCIPLE 6: TO BE PERCEIVED, PROPAGANDA MUST EVOKE THE INTEREST OF AN AUDIENCE AND MUST BE TRANSMITTED THROUGH AN ATTENTION-GETTING COMMUNICATIONS MEDIUM
PRINCIPLE 7: CREDIBILITY ALONE MUST DETERMINE WHETHER PROPAGANDA OUTPUT SHOULD BE TRUE OR FALSE
PRINCIPLE 8: THE PURPOSE, CONTENT, AND EFFECTIVENESS OF ENEMY PROPAGANDA; THE STRENGTH AND EFFECTS OF AN EXPOSE; AND THE NATURE OF CURRENT PROPAGANDA CAMPAIGNS DETERMINE WHETHER ENEMY PROPAGANDA SHOULD BE IGNORED OR REFUTED
PRINCIPLE 9: CREDIBILITY, INTELLIGENCE, AND THE POSSIBLE EFFECTS OF COMMUNICATING DETERMINE WHETHER PROPAGANDA MATERIALS SHOULD BE CENSORED
PRINCIPLE 10: MATERIAL FROM ENEMY PROPAGANDA MAY BE UTILIZED IN OPERATIONS WHEN IT HELPS DIMINISH THAT ENEMY’S PRESTIGE OR LENDS SUPPORT TO THE PROPAGANDIST’S OWN OBJECTIVE
PRINCIPLE 11: BLACK RATHER THAN WHITE PROPAGANDA MUST BE EMPLOYED WHEN THE LATTER IS LESS CREDIBLE OR PRODUCES UNDESIRABLE EFFECTS
PRINCIPLE 12: PROPAGANDA MAY BE FACILITATED BY LEADERS WITH PRESTIGE
PRINCIPLE 13: PROPAGANDA MUST BE CAREFULLY TIMED
PRINCIPLE 14: PROPAGANDA MUST LABEL EVENTS AND PEOPLE WITH DISTINCTIVE PHRASES OR SLOGANS
PRINCIPLE 15: PROPAGANDA TO THE HOME FRONT MUST PREVENT THE RAISING OF FALSE HOPES WHICH CAN BE BLASTED BY FUTURE EVENTS
PRINCIPLE 16: PROPAGANDA TO THE HOME FRONT MUST CREATE AN OPTIMUM ANXIETY LEVEL
PRINCIPLE 17: PROPAGANDA TO THE HOME FRONT MUST DIMINISH THE IMPACT OF FRUSTRATION
PRINCIPLE 18: PROPAGANDA MUST FACILITATE THE DISPLACEMENT OF AGGRESSON BY SPECIFYING THE TARGETS FOR HATRED
PRINCIPLE 19: PROPAGANDA CANNOT IMMEDIATELY AFFECT STRONG COUNTER-TENDENCIES; INSTEAD IT MUST OFFER SOME FORM OF ACTION OR DIVERSION, OR BOTH
“There was no point in seeking to convert the intellectuals. For intellectuals would never be converted and would anyway always yield to the stronger, and this will always be “the man in the street.” Arguments must therefore be crude, clear and forcible, and appeal to emotions and instincts, not the intellect. Truth was unimportant and entirely subordinate to tactics and psychology.

Multiculturalism produces nations of cultural homelessness: natives feel alienated from their rapidly-changing communities and become critical of immigrants, and many immigrants consequently feel as if they are in an alien and hostile land. Nobody wins except for the multicultural industry, which thrives on the very cultural tensions created by multiculturalism that are then used to justify more funding for their divisive programmes./

50 MWh Tesla Battery Commissioned At Australian Solar Power Plant

Both batteries were paid for by a $50 million grant from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency and the government of Victoria, with each contributing $25 million.

Source: http://energymetalnews.com/2018/11/19/50-mwh-tesla-battery-commissioned-at-australian-solar-power-plant/

#battery storage, #green energy

Comment by tonytran2015:

50MWh capacity for 6 years (=2200 cycles) provides 50MWh×2200 = 110 GWh.

The battery should not cost more than
110GWh×(20c/kWh) = 22M (AUD)

If it costs more than 22 Million Dollars then it is not viable as the cost of the battery alone is twice the wholesale price of electricity from coal.

If it costs less than 5 Million then it may be the way for the future (provided there is no new environment problems cause by lithium ion batteries).

The estimate of a 6 years life for a Lithium Ion battery is an over-estimation (? [14]) of its actual life. Any such actual battery may last 6 years or even longer but its capacity steadily declines over time to about 1/2 of initial capacity after 3 years, as has been seen with the common experience on laptops and smart phones powered by Lithium Ion batteries.

The advertised price for a 10kW battery system for home use is AUD 10,000 with another AUD 10,000 subsidization by the Australian State of Victoria. (Home owner pays 10000+2700 AUD to have both a battery and a Solar Photo-Voltaic System, Victoria State pays the rest).[11]

Three similar types of Ponzi schemes.

Three similar types of Ponzi schemes.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No.20x).

#Ponzi scheme, #pension funds, #Social benefits,

There are three similar types of Ponzi schemes. They are:

1. Privately run Ponzi schemes:

Plan: Members are paid by joining fees of growing number of new members.

Winner: Early members.
Losers: Latest members.

Status: Illegal in US, Australia and most English speaking countries.

Fatal flaw:

Number of members must grow exponentially.

2. Local government run Pension schemes:

Plan: Members are paid generously by contribution of growing number of new members.

Winner: Early members.
Losers: Latest members.

Status: Some Pension funds in the US have run into financial problems [1].

Fatal flaws:

Number of members must grow exponentially and contributions by members must generate net investment profits.

3. Socialist national welfare schemes run by many nations:

Plan: Overly generous welfare benefits (payments for no work, unlimited health care funded by governments) for citizens and service payments to corporations are paid by taxes on growing number of new citizens, corporations and growing national debts [2, 3].

Winner: Early citizens, early corporations.

Losers: Latest citizens and latest corporations prior to the collapse, national identity, national coherence.

Status: Venezuela, Brazil currently have serious financial short fall. California is heading to bankruptcy. Australia is running out of space in cities.

Fatal flaws:

Number of citizens, their productivity and national mortgageable debt securities must grow exponentially.

Number of citizens may be limited by the physical environment of each nation. The whole area of each country cannot be urbanized. Each nation may also run out of assimilable prospective immigrants. Beyond this point, further immigration may cause Pockets of Foreign Settlements and No Go Zones [4]. The nation may then lose its coherence through “Multi-culturalism” and “Cultural and Language Diversity” [5, 6]. The nation will then be under foreign pressure [7, 8] from countries of origin of its immigrants [9]. This may lead to a dissolution of the nation or even its take over by another nation [10, 11,12].

If left totally to himself, a politician without any attachment to the national culture would go for the easy option of running this Ponzi scheme on national scale.

“When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.”― Benjamin Franklin

https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/88664-when-the-people-find-that-they-can-vote-themselves-money

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”
― Alexander Fraser Tytler

Short history of dog eating in Vietnam.

#dog meat, #Buddhism, #insurgents, #Phạm Lãi, #Thanh Đề, #fox meat, #thịt cầy,

If you want to fight dog meat, you should know everything about it. (Suntzu taught: You cannot lose all 10/10 battles if you know well your enemy and yourself.)

1. Dog eating in ancient literature.

Eating dogs had gone back to more than 2000 years. This is proved in the doctrine of “no rabbits left, slaughtered the hounds” cited by retired commander Phạm Lãi of an ancient Viet kingdom.[1, 2, 3, 4]

“After flying birds have been exhausted good bows will get ruined. After the clever rabbits have died, those hound dogs hunting them will get slaughtered. This Viet king (you are serving) has long neck, bird beak, (that kind of people) only collaborates in hardship but does not want to share glory. Why have not you resigned?”

Generally, Vietnamese people who espouse the virtues of loyalty and hard working are against eating dogs, cats (which trust and are loyal and obedient to the owners) and buffaloes (which do heavy agricultural works and are loyal and obedient to the owners). Military people keep horses instead of buffaloes. Their horses are companions to them just like buffaloes to the peasants.

However, there are always people who want to rebel and challenge the customs by eating those four types of animals.

Buddhism started in or near to India about 200BC, spread out and reached Vietnam a long time ago. Buddhism is strongly against eating dogs. It has a story of a lady Thanh De who fed dog meat to Buddhist monks and suffered severe consequences [5, 6, 7].

2. Recent history of dog eating.

Figure: Restaurant for whole families eating Dog meat.

2.1- During the anti-colonial insurgency war against the French, the insurgents ordered civilians in Vietnam to eat all dogs so that insurgents won’t get bothered and revealed by their barking.

2.2- During the partitioned time (1954-1975), North Vietnam had little food and civilians were not allowed to keep dogs. Those having dogs must dispose of them.

2.3- During the communist insurgency war against the Republic of (South) Vietnam, the insurgents order civilians in country side of South Vietnam to dispose of all dogs so that insurgents won’t get bothered and revealed by their barking. Naturally, the anti-communist government of South Vietnam encouraged people to keep dogs as companion animals.

2.4- After the partition of Vietnam in 1954, there were millions of people from the North (Bac Ky: Northern Zone) moving to the South (Nam Ky: Southern Zone) to avoid the communist regime to be set up in the North.

The people from the South (Nam Ky: Southerner) recognized those people from North (Bac Ky: Northerner) by their language (nearly identical vocabulary but with slightly different pronunciations, different idioms) and their customs (eating different dishes, eating dogs, eating dishes with uncooked blood from ducks, pigs)

There are much higher percentage of 1954-Northerners eating dogs than Southerners.

2.4- Southerners do eat wild foxes (cầy). (Fox meat and peeled potatoes are hard boiled in coconut extract with added onion slices and turmeric powder). Northern Vietnamese then disguise their habit by calling dog meat “fox meat” (thịt cầy). Currently dog meat restaurants use the word “cầy” (foxes) to hide the real meaning of dogs.

2.5- After victory by Communist forces in 1975, many more Northerners (“Bac Ky 75”) moved to the South.

The percentage of 1975-Northerners eating dogs is even higher than the percentage of 1954-Northerners.

2,6- Eating dogs is now no more a taboo subject in the South and there has been open advocates for eating dogs. It was a taboo in Vietnamese Buddhism to talk about it (the policies of “Speak no evils” and of “no discussion about evil things”). There is now even a state authorized Vietnamese printed book teaching people how to farm dogs for meat. [8-14]

3. Current state of dog eating.

3.1- In some regions of North and Central Vietnam, it has been a custom in recent years to serve dog meats for family reunion on the anniversaries of the passing away (đám giổ) of their ancestors.

3.2- Not only eating dogs, Northerners also have village Tet festivals where buffalos duel to death (chọi trâu). Both the winner and loser buffaloes are then slaughtered. Meat of the winner is served to the most honored guests, the loser to the next in rank.[15-19].

3.3- With mass migration from many South East Asian countries, the eating of dog meat has spread to Australia, England, etc…

DOG EATING IN ANCIENT (prior to 200BC) East Asian Literature:

Phù Sai… viết một bức thư, buộc vào mũi tên, bắn vào thành Việt: “Tôi nghe giảo thỏ chết thì chó săn tất bị mổ, địch quốc đã diệt thì mưu thần cũng chẳng còn. Sao quan Đại Phu không lưu cho nước Ngô tôi còn lại một chút để làm cái dư địa sau này”.

Phạm lãi … Một thời gian sau đó, ông mới viết một lá thư gửi cho Văn chủng, đại ý nói sau khi chim muông bị bắn hết rồi thì cung nỏ bị cất hết vào kho; Sau khi thỏ hoang bị săn bắt hết rồi thì chó săn bị mổ ăn thịt. Hiện nay kẻ thù của nước Việt đã bị tiêu diệt, các đại thần có công người thì bị ruồng bỏ, kẻ bị bức hại.

Comment by tonytran2015:

That referendum did NOT allow discussions on its consequences by the “no” side (I have watched the debate). It was a strange thing.

It appears more logical to grant individual equal right requests by LGBT than to change the definition of “marriage”.

Australia has introduced laws aimed at preventing hate speech during a national debate on legalising same-sex marriage.

An astonishing 17 pupils at a single British school are in the process of changing gender…Most of the youngsters undergoing the transformation are autistic, according to a teacher there, who said vulnerable children with mental health problems were being ‘tricked’ into believing they are the wrong sex…Last night, Conservative MP David Davies said: ‘I congratulate this teacher for coming out and telling us what I have long suspected has been going on in schools. It is horrendous that children are being encouraged by other pupils to identify as transgender, particularly if they have autism.

How USA may get defeated.

How USA may get defeated.

(Blog No.20x).

#diversity, #divide to conquer, #diplomatic mistakes,

America is the strongest member of the five eyes countries (formerly six eyes countries, including the former White led South African). Studying its path allows predictions the future of all other members of the five eyes countries.

Although America is currently the strongest nation in the whole World both militarily and economically it can still be taken over by some cunning opponent (enemy) if it remains ignorant of the various methods available to its opponents.

1. It is possible for an opponent to take over USA.

It is possible for an opponent to take over USA using the following plan of attack.

1.1. The wise opponent would not openly challenge the US militarily or economically. (Suntzu teaching: No certain victory if enemy is not outnumbered 3 to 1).

1.2. The wise opponent would have to observe and take advantage of US hubris and its belief in its exceptionalism. This would later help it to corrupt the administration and attack the economy of the US. The opponent would be happy to see diplomatic mistakes by the US creating more enemies to itself in all corners of the World (Suntzu teaching: War is to be conducted on more than just the military fronts).

The greater the state, the more wrong and cruel its patriotism,
and the greater is the sum of suffering upon which its power is founded.
– Leo Tolstoy

Patriotism is when love of your own people comes first; nationalism, when hate for people other than your own comes first.
– Charles de Gaulle

Chinagate aka Commercegate is the most serious scandal in U.S. history. It involves the transfer of America’s most sensitive technology, including but not limited to nuclear missile and satellite technology, possibly in exchange for millions of dollars in contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore re-election effort and the Democratic National Committee.

The Chinagate scandal of 1996 ended up in an award of 900,000 in attorney’s fees and costs to Judicial Watch ten years later.

The scandal was an apparent scheme by the Clinton administration to sell seats on taxpayer-funded trade missions in exchange for campaign contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore campaign.

The US is now involved in many wars.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_involving_the_United_States

1.3. The wise opponent would challenge the US to let other countries interpret American Constitution and Government system from the perspectives of other countries.

Opponents would challenge it to leave its isolationism, to interpret “right to bear arms” (2nd Amendment) as “right to bear muskets”, to accept the foreign perspective of “anchor babies” and “birthright citizenship.” (14th Amendment), to accept the ambiguity of the vocabularies such as some denotation of some race and religion, to accept the foreign definitions of “religions”, to accept the foreign concept of blasphemy, to accept the foreign concept of hate speech, to accept the foreign concept same sex marriage, LGBT rights.

A man’s country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
– George William Curtis

True patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else.
– Clarence Darrow

1.4. The wise opponent would challenge the US to accept and adopt foreign concepts it does not understand well and bind itself with international treaties for such acceptance. (Challenge it to sign questionable treaties on trade, on international corporations, on migration, on multi-culturalism, on diversity of “religions”, on LGBT, on anti-discrimination). (Suntzu teaching: The commander has to choose his battle site and time).

Foreign concepts of anti-discrimination and hate speech allows other countries to criticize and denounce US people but not allow US people to crititize any of their actions.

Foreign “LGBT equality rights” mean they can adopt and raise children. Adoption agencies are forced to give them those poor kids.

1.5. The wise opponent would now make the US carry out US own laws: Equal eligibility for migration from all nations, equality of all “religions”, equal acceptance of all customs from all counties.

1.6. US is then made dysfunctional with its own laws: Child rape versus “religious” freedom, Prevention of Child sexual mutilation versus “religious” freedom, Prevention of cruelty against animals versus protection of religious practice, Human rights advocacy versus protection of “religious” preaching, Incitement to violence versus “religious” teaching.

Multitude of court cases and diverse rulings slow down the system and reduce trust in it.

It is also worn out financially by having to fund multitude of court cases, having to supply interpretors and translators to multitude of languages and having to study multitude of cultures and religions to conform to its own anti-discrimination laws.

Its tax based income is also depleted by international corporations avoiding its taxes.[10].

We’ll try to cooperate fully with the IRS, because, as citizens, we feel a strong patriotic duty not to go to jail. – Dave Barry

1.7. The wise opponent would now send its emigrants to the US under the label of diversifying the US culture. These expatriates of the opponent nation will help influencing the policy of the US and evenyually over-populating it. [8,9]

1.8. The diverse groups require erasure of “hurtful history” to facilitate their reinterpretation of history.

“History is a set of lies agreed upon.” – Napoleon Bonaparte

Truth hurts!

1.9. Diversity is turned now into division by infighting between groups for power and access to the communal wealth. USA will then have multiple fissures: Wealth gap, Inter-generational gaps, racial gaps, cultural gaps, religious gaps, LGBT versus non-LGBT.

Politicians will be more inclined to use favoritism to various opposing factions to collect votes.

Divide et impera (Latin maxim,”divide and rule“, appearing in English since 1600. )

A house divided against itself, cannot stand. Abraham Lincoln

Rich people want to collect commissions on transactions by poor people (as in cashless commerce). Poor people are resentful with debt traps set up by banks owned by super rich people. Children have to spend their time learning about LGBT theories in Primary Schools while omitting the learning of much needed basic social and work skills for their grown up lives.

1.10. The wise opponents will wait for fractional fighting in the US to weaken all fractions.

Useful idiots doing their works (Stalin ?)

Dueling by tigers benefits the hunter (https://survivaltricks.wordpress.com/2018/03/19/dueling-by-tigers-benefits-the-hunter/)

Divisive politics will also fuel vote buying overspending, favoritism, this weakens the military might of the USA.

1.11. The wise opponent can now takeover the US with the help from its own expatriates.

The officially declared war between the opponent and USA is then only used to legalize the appropriation of USA by that opponent. (Suntzu teaching: The best victories are the ones won without using any military battle).

2. Where is the current situation?

Currently events seem to be occurring according to those given in steps 1.9 and 1.10 and 1.11.

One nuclear power had fallen in some related way, that country was the Former South Africa.

Nixon was not aware that the Chinese knew all of his thinking and plans because of CIA mole Larry Wu Tai Chin. Larry did the document translations (Federal Broadcast Information Service) and advised on all aspects of negotiations. He had been doing damage for decades. He was even feted at banquets in Beijing, but nobody noticed (or at least, nobody cared). Finally caught and jailed, he committed suicide. Buried in Palo Alto.

Diversity has been hailed as beautiful but there are now a number of serious consequences. Terrible consequences have happened to justice systems in the “multicultural nations”. Their citizens are disoriented as justice seems to give diverse rulings.

There seems to be now no reciprocity in relationships between races and between religions.

4. WARNING to British women wanting to enter religious weddings.

They tied the knot with an Islamic ceremony, the Nikah, and didn’t bother with a civil one… The civil law courts under which she should have been protected could not grant it… Not undergoing a civil ceremony had been one of the biggest mistakes of her life. She had given up her own rights willingly. She fully understood how she had allowed herself to become a victim, but she still wanted a religious end to her religious wedding.

Asia Bibi’s Family Hunted ‘House to House’ as Blasphemy Acquittal Continues to Roil Pakistan
…Multiple European countries are in discussion with Pakistan over Bibi’s asylum request. Spain and France are thought to have made an offer to shelter the tormented mother of five, the Guardian reports. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also confirmed that his country was in asylum talks with Pakistan, but declined to provide more details due to the “delicate domestic context.”

The Futures and Derivatives Markets (Part 1).

The Futures and Derivatives Markets (Part 1).

#futures market, #index, #go long, #go short,

This blog post is designed to explain the working of the futures markets so that investors can see through the manipulations of those markets. The blog does NOT advise anyone to enter those high risk markets.

1. The original useful roles of futures markets.

There are many futures markets. The main ones are listed in the following:

1a. Gold Futures (Gold futures for various delivery times)

Gold Futures are for gold smiths and jewelers.

Jewellery makers love to receive contracts to supply jewelleries in advance to smooth out their production. Unless the customers provide raw gold or agree to pay at whatever unknown future market price no contract can be made. This rarely happens. So to get binding contracts, they have to know the price of gold few months or few years ahead, for the time they will start their machining process but knowing the future is impossible.

So a jeweller has to peg his contract price for those items to be supplied on a future date on whatever guesses given by the “Gold Future Markets”. When his contract to supply is binding he simultaneously enter into contracts with some counter-parties to get a payout to compensate for any unexpected rise from that agreed price of raw gold. On the other hand, if gold price falls on that date, he will have to pay out to his counter-parties. In this way he get a fix profit from his contract, irrespective of any fluctuation of gold price.

The same principle applies to gold producers or even national treasurers. For example, during the Asian Financial Crisis (triggered by some billionaire G.S. ‘s attack on Thai’s baht) the treasurer of Korea had to sell Korean gold to repay Korean debts. Whenever there is a due payment by Korea, the price of gold dropped from its othrwise constant value of USD273/oz.

To avoid having to sell gold at the artificial, unfair dips on the due dates, a gold producer (or even the treasurer of Korea) would have to enter into “Gold Future Contracts” (“going short”) with counter-parties to get a payout to compensate for any unexpected fall from that agreed price. On the other hand, if gold price rises on that date, he will have to pay out to his counter-parties. In this way he get a fix price from his contract, irrespective of any fluctuation of gold price.

1b. Metal Futures (Copper futures, Nickel futures, Iron futures).

Metal Futures (Copper futures, Nickel futures, Steel futures) are for consumers and producers of metals.

The same principles also apply to consumers and producers of other metals such as copper, steel, lead, zinc, tin, nickel, chrome, etc…

1c. Food Staples Futures (Soybean futures, Rice futures).

Food Staples Futures (Soybean futures, Rice futures) are for food processors and producers.

1d. Currency futures.

Currency futures are for importers and exporters.

1e. Shares-market-index futures.

Shares-market-index futures are for investment managers of superannuation and pension funds who have holding spread out on many companies and want to instantly peg their buying or selling prices at some fix level.

1f. Rain-fall futures.
Rain-fall futures are for farmers whose incomes and expenses vary widely with rain-falls.

Farmers have to buy water transported by tankers if there is no rain. They would be happy to pay a fix amount to a counter-party whether it rains or not. They will use the payout from the counter-party to buy water.

2. Method of betting on an index.

Players buy units of betting. For example, one unit of betting on the SPI Share Market Index may make a gain or loss of $US 20 for each point of the index in favor or against the player.

The deciding moment may be closing time (4:00pm) of the last trading Friday of the month.

For example, let the betting be $20 per unit and let the current date be 2018 November 13, the Current value of a chosen index on the market is 5950, the current estimate for that index on Friday 30th Nov 2018 may be 6010 as given out by some “betting house”.

A player L may buy one unit of betting on LONG. At (4:00pm) of Friday 30th Nov 2018 if that index is 6020, he wins 6020 – 6010 = 10 units and will be paid $20*10 = $200. At (4:00pm) of Friday 30th Nov 2018 if that index is 5090, he loses 6010 – 5090 = 20 units and will be have to lose $20*20 = $400.

On the other hand, a player S may buy one unit of betting on SHORT. At (4:00pm) of Friday 30th Nov 2018 if that index is 6020, he loses 6020 – 6010 = 10 units and will have to pay $20*10 = $200. At (4:00pm) of Friday 30th Nov 2018 if that index is 5090, he wins 6010 – 5090 = 20 units and will be paid $20*20 = $400.

So a player may win or lose if his guess is better or worse than that offered by the “betting house”.

3. Using index betting for a large investment.

An investor has at hand $100,000 and will spread his total investment of $1000,000 over the whole 200 largest companies of the share markets.

He knows the dip of the index is the best time to buy all stocks but buying is a time consuming process and the dip may not last that long.

Suppose that the current index of the market is nearly 6000. His $1M investment will go up and down with the market according to the index. Suppose that the index is up by 1 unit, his investment will go up by $(1/6000)*1M=$166. So he will need a rough value of $166/$20 = 8.3 units of betting.

His strategy will be to buy 8 units of betting on LONG at the dip of the market, then takes time to buy into individual company without any need for further timing. Any increase or decrease in those 200 company share prices is roughly compensated by the gain or loss on the betting on the index.

Tuesday’s announcement by the Department of Justice of a guilty plea by a former trader of JPMorgan for systemic “spoofing” and price manipulation of gold, silver, platinum and palladium traded on the COMEX and NYMEX futures exchanges (owned by the CME Group) sure seemed like a very big deal …. The infractions occurred from 2009 to 2015 and the trader admitted to engaging in a conspiracy to commit market manipulation on hundreds of occasions, with the knowledge and consent of his immediate supervisors.
