The pretentious environmental conservation by Greenies.

#pollution. #environment, #conservation,

Greenies overlook habitual, intentional wasters while harassing responsible people.

Greenies have not promoted conservation for the sake of the Earth but rather for their self-promotion. The followings prove the point.

a/- The power distribution industry in Australia is still allowed to promote resistive heating while banning the connectionn of energy efficient heat pumps as “controled loads” for off-peak rates.

b/- Vehicle Insurers in Australia are still free to quote outrageous premiums on the fuel efficient turbo charged engines.

c/-The packaging industry world-wide has been left doing their over-packaging which wastes plastic and paper material.


 Figure: Even fast food meals have also been over-packaged. The plastic red cap should had been made from paper material.

d/- Manufacturers in China can sell Stainless Steel Vacuum flasks to Australia without selling the replaceable plastic caps which deteriorate much faster than the main components. This causes forced disposal of stainless steel flasks by Australian.

e/- Manufacturers in China can sell short life fridges, freezers, air-conditioners without due consideration for related wastes in their manufacturing and disposal.

f/- Short life household products such as portable lamps, elestronic mosquito zappers create problems with lead contamination caused by their lead acid batteries.

g/- There are carbon pollution taxes but there is no toxic metal clean up levies on items containiing Mercury, Cadnium, Lead, Organic toxic waste.


Figure: Expensive light weight Lithium-Ion battery for smart phones is now promoted and subsidized (if it is good why does it need heavy subsidies?) to store solar electricity for households at night time.

h/- Conservation movements have been overlooking large scale pollution by self-proclaimed “late polluters”. It should have been assistance by “early polluters” in preventing pollution from those countries rather than giving the latter a free hand to get even in polluting.the earth.

i/- Green movements want to ban responsible usage of plastic bags in advanced nations while evedents show that those countries are not responsible for plastic bags floating in the oceans.

j/- Bottled Water has been irrationally promoted causing considerable plastic pollution and wasting of energy.


Figure: Bottled water. What are Greenies doing on the marketing of bottled water?

Understanding Chinese policy of “Thank God, Our tyrant is gone. I am your new tyrant”.

Understanding Chinese policy of “Thank God, Our tyrant is gone. I am your new tyrant.”

(Blog No.20x).

#Chinese Imperialism, #Mongolia independence, #Tibet invasion, #Nanking massacre, #San Francisco conference, #Paracel Islands, #Spratly Islands, #South East Asian sea, #dispute,

The mentality of Chinese Imperialism is that when a mutual tyrant has been defeated, a Chinese will have to become the new tyrant to rule his former comrades in arms.

1. Different mentalities in different cultures.

There is a Western fable about an Old Woman wishing longevity to a ruling Tyrant: The tyrant questioned her “Why do you want me blessed why all others want me cursed”. Her reply was “Every time we get a new tyrant, things get worse”. Chinese Imperialist mentality can never understand this humour.

Indeed, Western influenced Vietnamese from the South always have good laughs at the irony of “Thank God, Our tyrant is gone. I am your new tyrant”, while Chinese influenced Vietnamese from the North always ask why do people from the South laugh.

2. Historically recorded Chinese actions based on their policy of “Thank God, Our tyrant is gone. I am your new tyrant”.

2a- When the Mongolian forces attacked Northern China, Vietnamese Kings of Tran dynasty at that time were more on the side of Southern Song of China. However when the Yuan (Mongolian) empire has disintegrated, the Ming dynasty of China wanted to be the heir in succession to the empire, wanted and made many attempt to force Vietnam to be its colony. China was not successful until a Ho Quy Ly usurped the throne of the Viet King but subsequently surrendered to China. China’s rule on Vietnam was later overthrown by the Vietnamese hero of modest origin Le Loi, who later proclaimed himself to be King of Dai Nam (old name of Vietnam).

2b- After the Quin empire was dissolved, the Peking government wanted to be the heir in succession of the empire and wanted to force Outer Mongolia to be a vassal state of China. The “President” of Mongolia replied to Chinese demand:

“The empire had been dissolved, you go back to your own country (China) and each country runs its own affairs.”

China threatened a military invasion. Fortunately for Outer Mongolia, it got the backing of USSR. The threatened military invasion of Outer Mongolia by China was neutralized by the military might of USSR.

2c- After the Quin empire was dissolved, the Peking government wanted to be the heir in succession of the empire and wanted to force Tibet to be a vassal state of China. The Tibetan leaders refused. China threatened a military invasion.

Unfortunately for Tibet, it was alone and got invaded and occupied by China.

2d- After the Japanese empire surrendered at the end of WW2, it relinquished all controls and sovereignty claims on all occupied lands. The collaborating (?) Chinese local government in Taiwan denounced Japan for the Nanking massacre but wanted to keep on having the Paracel and Spratly groups of islands annexed from Vietnam by Japanese empire in WW2.

3. Serious threat to peace and stability by Chinese policy of “Thank God, Our tyrant is gone. I am your new tyrant”.

Having failed to convince many nations with FALSE information that China administered the Paracel and Spratly groups of islands since antiquity, China then FALSELY claimed that they had been given to China by France.

The second attempt by China also failed and China now wants to apply its laughable justification of “Thank God, Our tyrant is gone. I am your new tyrant” to keep the groups of islands annexed by the Japanese Empire from Vietnam and incorporated into Taiwan while denouncing any Japanese annexation of Chinese territory.

In 1938 Japan took the islands from France, garrisoned them, and built a submarine base at Itu Aba (now Taiping / 太平) Island. In 1941, the Japanese Empire made the Paracel and Spratly islands part of Taiwan, then under its rule.[88]
After World War II, Nationalist China reaffirmed its sovereignty over the islands in the South China Sea, and dispatched a patrol force to the islands, but this was challenged by the French…

In 1951, at the international Treaty of San Francisco conference, Vietnam’s representative claimed that both the Paracels and Spratlys are territories of Vietnam, and was met with no challenge from all nations at the event. However, neither the PRC nor the ROC participated in the conference. Separately, the ROC negotiated and signed its own treaty with Japan regarding the islands on April 29, 1952.

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

4. Conclusions

When allying with China against any mutual tyrant, the smaller nations must be aware of China’s ambition and must have plans to deal with their Chinese ally (such as suddenly forcing a disarmament of the “ally” to force the withdrawal of Chinese troops after peace).

Many small Asian nations are now taking on huge risk allying with China against some unworthy grievance or nuisances.

USA is now learning to its own cost for having a hubris to stand over the Soviet Union against its plan to denuclearize China, for allying with China against the less aggressive opponent Soviet Union, and for transferring (through claims of “thefts from USA”) of nuclear and missile, defense technology.

France had NOT given to China Paracel and Spratly Islands.

France had NOT given to China Paracel and Spratly Islands.

#Paracel Islands, #Spratly Islands, #South East Asian sea, #dispute,

The dispute in the South East Asian sea is causing high tension and people want to know how had such a dispute arise and why had China used military force to capture some islands from the Republic of Vietnam in 1972 and then some more islands from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. (China justification had been reflected in a Wikipedia entry: Battle of the Paracel Islands, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Paracel_Islands ).
This blog gives an assesment of Chinese justification for its capturing of these islands.

The Wikipedia entries on Paracel and Spratly Islands contain statements giving the FALSE impression that France had given the Paracel and Spratly groups of islands to China in 1884.

1. Background.

There are groups of islands named Hoang Sa and Truong Sa that have been administered and economically exploited by Vietnamese at least since the time of Vietnamese King Lê Thánh Tông (1460 – 1497).

Figure: Map of Vietnam under King Minh Mạng (1820-1840).

Figure: Map of Vietnam (Empire d’ Annam) in French records.

Figure: Map of Vietnam during King Tự Đức (Hồng Đức tòan đồ)

Dai Nam Nhat Thong, entire map of “Great Southern country”, of King Minh Mang expresses the sovereignty of Hoang Sa, Truong Sa of the Vietnamese.

Under the reign of King Minh Mang, the improvement of boatbuilding technology for seafarers has been carried out extensively. Not only increased the number, but the king also increased the type of boat. According to the Book of Indescribable Dignitaries, in the Year of the Rat (1828), the King set the class of boats (setting the number of boats to be closed) in the locality.

The marine regulations were also improved by Minh Mạng, he set size and style for each class of boats, united in the whole country to the boat workshops according to that standard that closed. In particular, King Minh Mang had built a boat of copper and steamboat in the French model.

Minh Mang’s special interest in shipbuilding not only serves the purpose of economy, trade and technology development, but also builds a powerful navy with great strength and capability in Setting up and protect the sovereignty of sea islands. Even in 1839 he ordered references to Western documents to compile books on naval warfare, naval maps then for soldiers to practice and practice.

Following the implementation of the sovereignty of Hoang Sa, Truong Sa from Gia Long, under the Minh Mang reign, the ships patrolling and surveying the Hoang Sa will be carried out in the spring. . According to different documents, this activity was carried out within 6 months, despite the year due to rain and wind, the storm had to go back, but the mission of the boat remains unchanged.

In addition to the exploitation, the sea guard, Minh Mang also conducted the construction of places of worship (pagodas, shrines), planting trees, building columns, sovereigns in some islands in the year (At Mui (1835), Binh Than (1836)).

Apart from activities to protect sovereignty and exploitation of marine resources, King Minh Mang ordered the navy to rescue and assist the ships of any country in distress in the waters of Vietnam. As in the year of Bân Than (1836), a British merchant ship hit the Hoang Sa, rescued more than 90 people to bring food and water to the coast of Binh Dinh to give them back home.

These showed that Emperor Minh Mang not only inherited but also developed sea strategy of the previous dynasty to a new height, affirming the national strength in the South China Sea, further strengthening the position and sovereignty in the islands in general and Hoang Sa, Truong Sa archipelago in particular. It shows that the sacred land in the East Sea is eternally Vietnamese.

[1]. External Sources, the sources are not mentioned at present to protect their websites and authors.

These facts are also backed up by the following study

This de facto sovereignty over the Truong Sa chain is confirmed by European sources. Portuguese and Dutch maps drawn by navigators in the early 17th century identify the islands as Vietnamese.[20] It is important to note, however, that these early maps identify the islands as the Pracel or Parcel archipelago and locate them “in the middle of the East Sea, East [sic] of Vietnam, off the Vietnamese coastal islands.”[21] According to Vietnam, the apparent error in
positioning the islands was due to the relatively primitive scientific and navigational technology of the time. In addition, the Europeans grouped both the Truong Sa and Hoang Sa archipelagoes together into a single island chain called the Paracels.

[2]. https://scholarspace.manoa.hawaii.edu/bitstream/10125/2541/Vietnamese%20Claims%20to%20the%20Truong%20Sa%20Archipelago%20%5BEd.%20Spratly%20.pdf

2. False statement in Wikipedia entry

The Wikipedia entries on Paracel and Spratly Islands

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Paracel_Islands

contain statement giving the FALSE impression that France had given the Paracel and Spratly groups of islands to China in 1884.

That entry gave the FALSE impression that French Empire had given the Paracels and Spratly Islands to China and is TOTALLY BASELESS.

China first asserted sovereignty in the modern sense to the South China Sea’s islands when it formally objected to France’s efforts to incorporate them into French Indochina during the Sino-French War (1884–1885). Initially, France recognized Qing China’s sovereignty over the Paracel and Spratly archipelagos, in exchange for Chinese recognition of Vietnam as a French territory. Chinese maps since then have consistently shown China’s claims, first as a solid and then as a dashed line.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Paracel_Islands

3. Rejection of a false claim on territorial exchange/concession.

To claim that the Islands had been given to China, there are two requirements

a- Possession the Islands by the donor at that time of 1884: France has never possessed the Islands.

b- There must be substantiated records of the exchange/concession.

4. Had the French Empire got good ownership of the Islands ? No.

According to the treaty of Hue (1984) France guaranteed the integrity of Vietnam.

Translation:

Article 15. France undertakes to guarantee henceforth the integrity of the realms of His Majesty the King of Annam, and to defend this Sovereign against all external aggression and internal rebellion. To this effect, the French authorities may station troops at whatever points in the territory of Annam and Tonkin they judge necessary for the effective functioning of the protectorate.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Hu%E1%BA%BF_(1884)

So France had no territory to give to China.

According to the Harmand treaty (1883) [5] which was not ratified by the French Parliament and its updated Patenotre treaty (1884) [4], there were no ceding of any Vietnamese Islands to France.

Art. 15. La France s’engage à garantir désormais l’intégrité des États de S. M. le Roi d’Annam, à défendre ce Souverain contre les agressions du dehors, et contre les rébellions du dedans. A cet effet, l’autorité française pourra faire occuper militairement sur le territoire de l’Annam et du Tonkin les points qu’elle jugera nécessaires pour assurer l’exercice du protectorat.

En cas de contestation le texte français fera seul foi.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Hu%E1%BA%BF_(1884)

Translation

Article 15. France undertakes to guarantee henceforth the integrity of the realms of His Majesty the King of Annam, and to defend this Sovereign against all external aggression and internal rebellion. To this effect, the French authorities may station troops at whatever points in the territory of Annam and Tonkin they judge necessary for the effective functioning of the protectorate.

In the event of a dispute, the French text shall prevail.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Hu%E1%BA%BF_(1884)

So France had nothing to give to China.

So regardless of whatever treaty between China and any other country, as may have been claimed by Quin Dynasty, the sovereign of the Island still belong to the Vietnamese king and any claim by China has no standing.

5. The cited Tientsin Accord has nothing on any territorial concession/exchange between France and China.

The following quote in bold is the part giving FALSE information

The Tientsin Accord, concluded on 11 May 1884, provided for Chinese recognition of the French protectorate over Annam and Tonkin and withdrawal of Chinese troops from Tonkin, in return for a comprehensive treaty that would settle details of trade and commerce between France and China and provide for the demarcation of its disputed border with Vietnam.[ Thomazi, A., La conquête de l’Indochine (Paris, 1934) 189–92]

On 6 June the French followed up their accord with China by concluding a fresh Treaty of Huế with the Vietnamese, which established a French protectorate over both Annam and Tonkin and allowed the French to station troops at strategic points in Vietnamese territory and to install residents in the main towns.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-French_War

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-French_War.

The claim was all based on a single book published in 1934 by Thomazi [Thomazi, A., La conquête de l’Indochine (Paris, 1934) 189–92], published a long 50 years after the 1884 dispute and the Tientsin Accord,.

Someone please provide more details on those pages of that book!

Vietnam and France claimed no Islands have been given to China. To prove the point, France has declared its control over the Islands in 1932.

In 1932, one year after the Japanese Empire invaded northeast China, France formally claimed both the Paracel and Spratly Islands; China and Japan both protested. In 1933, France bolstered their claim and seized the Paracels and Spratlys, announced their annexation, formally included them in French Indochina. They built several weather stations on them, but they did not disturb the numerous Chinese fishermen found there.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Paracel_Islands.

Indeed the entirety of the Tientsin Accord is printed below and readers can see that all claims that France has given the Islands to China are baseless.

Text of the accord (original French)

The original French text of the accord, in five articles, is given below. English Translation is also available from same source [4]

Art. 1. La France s’engage à respecter et à protéger contre toute agression d’une nation quelconque, et en toutes circonstances, les frontières méridionales de la Chine, limitrophes du Tonkin.

Art 2. Le Céleste Empire, rassuré par les garanties formelles de bon voisinage qui lui sont données par la France, quant à l’intégrité et à la sécurité des frontières méridionales de la Chine, s’engage : 1° à retirer immédiatement, sur ses frontières les garnisons chinoises du Tonkin ; 2° à respecter dans le présent et dans l’avenir, les traités directement intervenus ou à intervenir entre la France et la Cour de Hué.

Art. 3. En reconnaissance de l’attitude conciliante du Gouvernement du Céleste Empire, et pour rendre hommage à la sagesse patriotique de Son Excellence Li-Hong-Chang, négociateur de cette convention, la France renonce à demander une indemnité à la Chine. En retour, la Chine s’engage à admettre, sur toute l’étendue de ses frontières méridionales limitrophes du Tonkin, le libre trafic des marchandises entre l’Annam et la France d’une part, et la Chine de l’autre, réglé par un traité de commerce et de tarifs à intervenir, dans l’esprit le plus conciliant, de la part des négociateurs chinois, et dans des conditions aussi avantageuses que possible pour le commerce français.

Art. 4. Le Gouvernement français s’engage à n’employer aucune expression de nature à porter atteinte au prestige du Céleste Empire, dans la rédaction du traité définitif qu’il va contracter avec l’Annam et qui abrogera les traités antérieurs relatifs au Tonkin.

Art. 5. Dès que la présente Convention aura été signée, les deux Gouvernements nommeront leurs Plénipotentiaires, qui se réuniront, dans un délai de trois mois, pour élaborer un traité définitif sur les bases fixées par les articles précédents.

Conformément aux usages diplomatiques, le texte français fera foi.

Fait à Tien-Tsin, le 11 mai 1884, le dix-septième jour de la quatrième lune de la dixième année du Kouang-Sin, en quatre expéditions (deux en langue française et deux en langue chinoise), sur lesquelles les Plénipotentiaires respectifs ont signé et apposé le sceau de leurs armes.

Chacun des Plénipotentiaires a gardé un exemplaire de chaque texte.

Signé : Ll-HONG-TCHANG. Signé : FOURNIER.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tientsin_Accord

So all claims on possession by succession by China are unsubstantiated !

Please note the statements from the Wikipedia [3] entry

In 1933, France bolstered their claim and seized the Paracels and Spratlys, announced their annexation, formally included them in French Indochina. They built several weather stations on them, but they did not disturb the numerous Chinese fishermen found there.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Paracel_Islands.

The statements presuppose that the Islands did not belong to Vietnam prior to 1933, a FALSE fact that has been used to reinforce another FALSE information.

6. How had China obtained some islands after WW2.

At the end of WW2, Chinese troops went to the Islands to disarm surrendering Japanese troops and Chinese troops refused to withdraw after the disarmament.

In 1945, in accordance with the Cairo and Potsdam Declarations and with American help, the armed forces of the Republic of China government at Nanjing accepted the surrender of the Japanese garrisons in Taiwan, including the Paracel and Spratly Islands. Nanjing then declared both archipelagoes to be part of Guangdong Province. In 1946 it established garrisons on both Woody (now Yongxing / 永兴) Island in the Paracels and Taiping Island in the Spratlys. France promptly protested. The French tried but failed to dislodge Chinese nationalist troops from Yongxing Island (the only habitable island in the Paracels), but were able to establish a small camp on Pattle (now Shanhu / 珊瑚) Island in the southwestern part of the archipelago.

In 1950, after the Chinese nationalists were driven from Hainan by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), they withdrew their garrisons in both the Paracels and Spratlys to Taiwan. In 1954 France ceased to be a factor when it accepted the independence of both South and North Vietnam and withdrew from Indochina.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Paracel_Islands

7. Conclusions.

China has no basis to claim the Paracel and Spratly groups of Islands on possession by succession.

The trick of using fake documentation, fake evidence to cause irreversible damage to opponents had been known for thousands of years in China and many such cases had been recorded in Chinese history. The trick is also applied by propagandists in all countries [7]. The current case of some Wikipedia entries had been manipulated is just an application of it in modern time.

Communism WILL FAIL.

Communism WILL FAIL.

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).

#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.

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.”

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.
Joseph Goebbels”,

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./

An application of the principles here [8] has discovered some Wikipedia entries, which have been manipulated to give FALSE evidence to to the South East Asian sea dispute.

The following webpages [8, 9] have been under Denial of Service attacks. The webpages criticized China’s justification of its annexation of the Paracel and Spratly groups of Islands from Vietnam.

In the Middle East, any argument based on the Dead Sea Scrolls also need to be reassessed.
