Understanding the Concept of Allying to Distant Powers to Subjugate Immediate Neighbours.

Contrary to Westerners’ impression, China is not ruled by successive descendents of an Empire founder for thousands of years. Actually, there are many successive empires in China, each killing all eligible inheritors and most officials of the previous empire to grab its power and to prevent its resurgence. The new empire then restored and continued to use most Citadels built by the previous empire.

Except for a short period of the Zhao dynasty (who ruled by being virtuous but was therefore bullied by their own followers), whatever empire occupying the Central Citadel always practice Allying to Distant Powers to Subjugate Immediate Neighbours.

1. The central empire state and its surrounding vassal states.

The ruling Emperor always has to award his contributing followers while keeping them under control.
The empire is carved into many vassal states (each is a miniature copy of the central state but having to pay annual tributes to the Emperor) awarded hereditarily to the contributing followers of the emperor. The vassal states sometimes wage wars among themselves, their boundaries are not fix but always change due to wars/feuds between their rulers. Sometimes the Emperor has to intervene to stop wars among his vassal states.

The ancestors (in name, but not biologically) of the founder of the Qin Empire were followers of the Zhao emperors and had been awarded the vassal state of Qin, but they successfully bullied the Zhao Emperors to gradually rob their land and their throne.

2. Allying to Distant Powers to Subjugate Immediate Neighbours (within the empire).

The desire is understandable. Chinese history has shown many stories of rebellion by trusted officials to steal the Emperor’s throne and wives.

On a national level, each emperor let his most trusted generals be the rulers of distant non-prosperous vassal states. The distant governors have no chance of becoming more powerful than the Emperor, but they can be recalled to subdue any rebellious official in the Emperor’s court.

3. Allying to Distant Powers to Subjugate Immediate Neighbours (on international level).

There are times when the central state of the empire is threatened by another stronger empire/nation (for examples the Huns Nomades, the Jin Dynasty, the Mongolian Empire of Ghanghi Khan, the Manchurian Empire.)

Figure: The (Southern) Song Dynasty allying to the distant Mongolia to defeat its immediate neighbour (Northern) Jin.

In that case, the Enperor will pretend to find new markets and send trade emissaries to third (and maybe fourth and fifth) countries behind the back of the undesirably strong neighbour. Trade talks with those countries may soon become secret talks of alliance for double thronged attacks on the undesirably strong neighbour ! The spoils of wars will be divided among “allies” according to their contributions.

It is known that 2000 years ago, China has reached distant countries like Persia, various non-united nomadic countries in Siberia. The purpose was not purely for trading. It was to keep open the possibilities for alliance against immediate neighbours of the empire.

4. Applications.

Vietnam (Annam in Chinese history) was never a Chinese land and has revolted against Chinese occupations. China used to ally itself with the Southern neighbours of Vietnam (Champa some 400 years ago, and Khmer Rouge recently) for many plans for double pronged attack on Vietnam.

India is a Southern neighbour of China. The method calls for an alliance with Sri Lanka and provoking wars between the two harmonious neighbours India and Sri Lanka.

Burma has a common boundary with China. Its national cohesion is declining. The country would be a suitable candidate for application of China’s all three policies of Forever Expanding, Strike-then-Consolate, Allying to Distant Powers to Subjugate Immediate Neighbours. A suitable ally for China would be some revolting Minorities in the South (see [5]).

North Korea is a neighbour of China but historically had fought against China. Its is always on guard against China surprise overrun (Tibet typed operation). China makes pressure on it by opening trade with its Capitalist opponent South Korea. China may also ally with the US to attack and occupy North Korea at some convenient time. Territorial gains would have to be kept by China as the huge occupation army would logically be Chinese. (This whole paragraph was written before 05 April 2017 and publish before the meeting between US and Chinese leaders in 06 April 2017. Events after publication date now unfold almost exactly along these predictions.)

Demonetizing¬†in India robs the poors.

Demonetizing in India robs the poors

#black economy, #corruption, #demonetization, #India,
As a money sovereign, the Indian government issues its own fiat money (which has values only by. acceptance by the issuing goverment to pay its tax, fines and to buy government supplied properties and service).

Now the same government declares that the money in high denomination (80% of issued money) will expire at the end of the year 2016.

1. The justification of avoiding counterfeit is not acceptable as counterfeits can be detected with more care by money users. Old money notes should be orderly and gradually removed from circulation with no sudden date of demonetization.

What may happen to someone who is oversea and cannot come back in time to exchange his notes for new one?

2. Saying that high valued cash money are mostly illegal money is unacceptable.

Is the government prepared to receive all its taxes, fines and fees in small valued notes?

Poor people have no way to store their saving except using cash. Does the government expect them to store the saving in bulky, worn out low valued notes?
Rich people don’t need to keep high valued notes: They can buy gold, land, houses, business, oversea investments. The value of a business, its good will, is enormous and no one can assign any precise legal value to a business! Rich people will take advantage of this.

3. Fighting corruption should be principally executed by rendering government processes transparent. Corrupt officials are too clever to be caught with the simple trick of demonetization.

So all this business of demonetizarion seems like a way to make a cashless India. On the way, the government robs people of their savings but retain their debts to the powerful.

The lessons for the future:

1. The poor Indians have to convert their saving into goods (such as gold, food) and hoard the goods.

2. Alternatively, they may need to take the I Owe You notes from their local reputable businessmen. The local businessmen may also form a trust that owns the hoarded goods on behalf of the poor.

This may lead the people back to the finance systems of the previous few centuries.

3. The government has done it once, they will do it again. Indian people should only swap their goods into Indian money prior to time to pay taxes!
