Mailvox: China gears up

This email pretty much echoed my thoughts on the matter:

Yesterday I told my wife, "Watch - when China really feels its oats and gets serious about colonizing and taking Africa, they'll drop the one child policy."

Then this morning I see this report:

China's ruling Communist Party announced Thursday that the country will start allowing all families to have two children, abolishing an unpopular policy that limited many urban couples to only one child for more than three decades.

The decision is the most significant easing of family-planning policies that were long considered some of the party's most onerous intrusions into family life and had been gradually relaxed in recent years. The restrictions led to an imbalanced sex ratio because of a traditional preference for boys, and draconian enforcement that sometimes included forced abortions.

The news elated 36-year-old Su Weihu in Guangzhou, who said she now plans to get pregnant next year before she becomes too old, and that she is eager for her 8-year-old daughter to have a sibling.

"I have looked forward this for so many years — even had dreams about it! I cried every time when I woke up and realized it wasn't yet true. I thought it was so unfair," Su said. "I do not care if the second child is a boy or a girl, at my age, as long as he or she is healthy."

A statement from the party's Central Committee carried by the official Xinhua News Agency said the decision to allow all couples to have two children was "to improve the balanced development of population" and to deal with an aging population.
Yeah, it's to improve demographic balance. That seems likely. And if they need to support an aging population, why not just import Arabs and Africans? That seems to be working out so well for the European nations, after all.

It remains to be seen if this will actually do anything. China had previously lifted the policy in some localities yet TFR...fell. China may _want_ to colonize Africa but with a secularist ideology it may be unable to do so.

Why not? Keeping China stable has always been a founding principle of Chinese governing theory, including post-Mao communist leaders.

The 8 grandparents per 1 child thing is a huge problem when your social security consists mostly of your children and grandchildren's income. They already had to pass a law allowing parents to sue their kids for failing to take proper care of them, and a country full of old people angry at the government and with nothing to lose + generations of only children being sent off to coastal cities to attempt to make it big and carry the whole family is a societal nightmare, and is already tearing the country apart.

Africa may be part of it, but China is notoriously inwardly focused. Everything they do is an extension of domestic policy, that's been true for millennia.

There is a tendency to over-estimate the Chinese as strategic geniuses here in the West, particularly on the Right. I can tell you, as someone with many colleagues on the ground in the real China, that they are not. Their economic problems are many times worse than ours, as bad as our is, and they don't have any societal trust. That the Chinese have an endless appetite for T-bills and ensure that ALL contracts are enforceable either in Hong Kong or London reveals, they don't trust each other or their government in the least. Add to that a grasping and small-minded materialism--black Mercedes, anyone?--and it's not pretty picture.

Yes, they are smart. And capable. They are more dangerous than Latinos or Africans, to be sure. But that alone doesn't mitigate the disaster that is their culture. They are much weaker than many suspect.

Africa has mineral resources of which development the eco-nuts have suppressed; with the Chinese, those minerals will be developed. Also those Western companies in Africa will need to pay due homage to Chines demands just as they do in China itself.

The surplus Chinese have to leave the country. The rich are already bailing out. Many move their families to the United States while still having their businesses in China. The middle class and poor can't wait to leave. Many overstay their visa. The contrast between their lives in China and the US is a big wakeup call. It sounds like a step backwards for the Chinese to go into Africa. They have to create their own special havens from the murderous broods.

Blogger Azimus October 29, 2015 12:00 PM  

I don't think China will ever colonize Africa in the "Empire Building 1.0" sense, that is making outright claims to sovereignty over territory and supplanting/absorbing the indigenous population - which is the game Putin still seems to be playing.

For 20yrs now that I know of, the Chinese have been playing what could maybe be called "Empire Building 2.0" which is to buy up the economic engines of a small nation, invest in their infrastructure and become so integral to the small nation that nothing moves - cars, trains, water, electricity, ore, money, without the blessing of the Chinese. I don't know if this is an enhancement of the US/IMF Empire strategy of lending small nations piles of money they can't pay back to build stuff they don't need, and turning the small nation into an unwilling de-facto vassal or not, but it is similar though grounded more in tangibles than the US method. In the Chinese way, everybody works to send products/resources back to the homeland they will never enjoy. In the US way, nobody works because nobody has any money to buy anything and there's nothing to enjoy. Amounts to the same thing for the little guy, except maybe that the Chinese system is more politically stable.

I always wondered about cultural effects of the one child policy that don't seem to get discussed.

A recently born child is a sole offspring of two parents who are in turn the single children of their parents. If they showed you their family tree, you'd think it was being held upside down. You have six adults -two parents and four grandparents- focused on one child. Do we get a generation of massively spoiled brats?

Nothing will happen. They could abolish all limits entirely and China's fertility will follow every other developed Asian nation. Although culturally China less feminist, in terms of women working, they are more feminist than the U.S. Traditional culture is all but dead. The CCP still has a policy of urbanization to drive GDP growth. More people moving into the cities leads to lower fertility.

China retains a borg-like in-group preference.

An in group borg-like sensibility is a dynamic advantage. Religion or any value system that unites has a probabilistic advantage over one that is individual based (it doesn't matter if god is an error in thought, it matters that it unites - science is useless in this regard). Under certain conditions the individualistic may prosper but its not an optimal strategy.

It is also an optimal strategy to undermine other groups pre-emptively. A spirit of fear, preparedness and even pre-emptive aggression is more optimal than a spirit of co-operation even if at times co-operation is productive.

All of these so called "movements", BLM etc, are inherently aggressive in nature. All of the buzzwords are euphemisms for conquest. Words like equality, phrases like save the children, protect women.

One of the biggest headaches out there has been the security implications of a China and India with substantial surpluses of men. It's a near guarantee of war.

A surplus of men is when each family has 4 children and can afford to lose 1 or 2 sons without wrecking society. See how Muslims with 6 kids send their children to be blown up. An only male child in China is responsible for caring for his parents. It's true that demographically, China wouldn't suffer long-term from losing "excess" males since the future target population is unchanged, but there would be a lot of families without anyone to care for them in their old age, and two sets of grandparents lose their only grandchild.

Furthermore, young men die in war. They aren't going to send 50 year old confirmed bachelors, they will send 20 year old young men to die. Parents still have hope their son wouldn't be one of the unmarried losers, indeed having a military career increases the odds of finding a wife.

I've mentioned this article before: Why Do Asians Support Big Government?.
John writes:

What Anti-globalist Expatriate says reminds me of a conversation I had with a man who was mayor of a city in California with a large Chinese population. He could speak Chinese, and he was familiar with the culture.

With some exceptions, he said, most had little interest in adopting American values. Often, however, they would pay lip service to assimilation. Once he challenged a Chinese man who was doing this. The man smiled and replied, “Well, you took this country from the Indians, and we’re going to take it from you.”

He said he would often circulate in the Chinese community and listen to the conversations, without the residents knowing he could understand them. He said their common term for an American was “foreign devil.” (I’ve confirmed this from other sources.) He said they have “no respect” for white Americans and generally regard blacks as animals.
[after what we've seen in Ferguson, Baltimore and elsewhere who can blame them?]

On the subject of corruption, he said that Chinese restaurants have different sets of books, one to show the IRS and the other to show the real cash flow. They don’t worry about audits because 1) few IRS agents speak Chinese and can decipher the available records 2) if an auditor should figure out what’s going on the proprietors can simply shout “racism.” They are quite aware of the potency and usefulness and of that charge.

American Renaissance has quite a few articles on Chinese in Africa.
The usual take is ''Chinese firms come to [African country] pay off the tribal 'big man' (such as Robert Mugabe) then are pretty much free to operate there as they see fit''
They and their work crews see local Africans as problem wildlife and deal with them as such. As noted in the ''Africans in China'' posts mixed in, that's how they deal with them 'on their home field' as well.

I believe LTC Kratman did a column about China being a historical failure as an expansive power, repeatedly failing in attempts to expand direct control outside the Middle Kingdom. Not to mention if there is one lesson we should have learned by now active control or participation of the government in business is a problem in the long term (decreased competition, quality), there are all sorts of skeletons in the closet over there that haven't been revealed yet.
While the current leadership may want to colonize portions of Africa, the likely fall out would be tribal revolts worse than seen by the Europeans. At the far end of a long logistics chain is not where you want to be, especially considering the issues they had with Vietnam just next door.

No argument, but I view that as an expression of the decay of a societies underlying social trust, and therefore I don't think it is unique to government: I see the same process at work in our corporations as well. There is a feedback loop, of course, as the transition from high-trust to low-trust grinds to its grubby end.

Thanks for posting this, VD.

Africa is arguably the richest continent on the globe in terms of minerals and land. China has a marked lack of water available for agriculture... yet parts of Africa are drowning in water and unused farmland. My prediction of the end of the one-child policy was just a viewing the future with generational thinking, rather than reactionary thinking. A growing Chinese population is a massive force to be reckoned with.

Secondarily, judging by the rapid growth of the Chinese church, I have a hunch that China may end up the next great Christian empire just as Rome was transformed from within.

And no matter what happens, I rejoice today for the couples who can now expand their families and cast off this Satanic restriction.

I always assumed that was just the opening move. Getting the target nation a decent infrastructural engine wholly owned and operated by Han, inc. so that when the west declined to the point that it couldn't possibly counter, China could go full colonization in an instant.

And who cares if they don't go and change the flag or the name of the country. If vast tracts of land are settled by Chinese, answering only to Chinese authorities, running infrastructure and industry controlled by Chinese... who gives a shit if for the time being they are officially immigrant citizens of Zimambia or Congeria?

@#53. "With some exceptions, he said, most had little interest in adopting American values"

I would say this is true for all first generation Chinese. Any native born Chinese would have difficulty assimilating and it would be difficult in their context. Exactly how do you make friends with Americans who might speak English well and themselves poorly. They don't socialize with Americans in their own neighborhoods with majority Asians. The only bright spot is the second or third generation Chinese will assimilate for the simple reason that Chinese is a difficult language that makes it difficult to keep up. Unfortunately, assimilation is slowed due to influx of new arrivals that overwhelms American Born Chinese (ABC).

As for the other points, yes Chinese like Big Government since many work there, but they also like market based crony capitalist economies like what they have at home. They are extremely competitive and insist on cheap prices that usually result in things being cheap and inexpensive. You get what you pay for. In Taiwan, they have a single payer medical plan that everyone participates. It is indeed cheap and affordable. They are adequate in most cases except if you need better care. Then you're on your own.

They like gun control, but it will backfire because keeping guns away from Asians is easy, but not so easy from the "lesser" minorities.

what will happen when the Africans reject the Chinese

If you don't think the Africans can easily be bought off or otherwise soothed, the example of the recent Synod at the Vatican might be helpful. Conservatives were hoping the African bishops, who still see homosexuality the way everyone else did a century ago, would stand firm on that doctrine and others. That didn't happen. From a picture I saw of Francis posing with a group of smiling black African bishops, and quotes from some of them about how they have to learn to be more merciful and adjust to the times, the main impression I get is that they were thrilled to be invited and fawned over, and they wanted little more than to fit in and be liked.

I'm sure that's unfair. But I see African leaders in general as being very easy marks for any sharp operator who's willing to flatter them and spend some money. It's always been that way before, so why would it change now?

Another way to look at it: would black South Africans ever have driven the whites out of power without a ton of outside help?

Where are you that one 9mm cartridge is only 15 cents? I order online, and even then have to pay about 21 cents a round.

I'm still waiting on these Bad Boys to become available in 9mm.

They will try. But when you are close to your home base and still can't perform, the chance of success decreases inversely with the increase of the logistical chain length. Sure you can stock pile, but that means arms and ammo that the opposition has a chance to get access to also.

For 20yrs now that I know of, the Chinese have been playing what could maybe be called "Empire Building 2.0" which

I don't know if I should cheer for them building their version of the Panama canal in Nicaragua, or cheer at them failing to.

China retains a borg-like in-group preference.

People can get jobs as "white guy in a suit" throughout Asia because when people see whites they think they are more trustworthy than out of clan Asians.

China's army will use ammo that makes Russian surplus that has been buried for 50 years look like Buffalo Bore or Glaser in comparison

"They will try. But when you are close to your home base and still can't perform, the chance of success decreases inversely with the increase"

Mandela's family was given a gold mine. They fired the white security guards that had complaints of racism against them. The new security guards sold the stairs and tools for scrap metal, no gold has come out if in since. Other than giving them poison rice that already happened, they could get them to line up for a benefits office gaschamber/incinerator.

China's army bullets are made with less lead than children's toys & milk.

China did this about two years ago.

Ping-Ping's Chairman's wife got pregnant with her second instantly. She was pregnant when she visited in Feb of 2014. This seemed wonderful at the time. Of course, now that the Party imprisoned him, having a wife with a baby is rather terrifying.

As to Africa, my state department friend who spends a lot of time in Africa told me that China is now the dominant power in Africa several years ago.

And a friend whose work involves reading papers from other countries told me that China now has troops on the ground in Syria...something I have not heard anywhere else.

Now that is very interesting. Russia and China both in the middle east?

also.. this needs to be said... This is damn fantastic news. I don't give a damn about the geo-politics of it... from a Christian perspective.. this is excellent.

This will be fascinating to watch unfold. Will atheist families continue to reproduce well below replacement level while Christian families produce bounties of children? Godspeed to the Chinese Christian community.

Chinese are going to suck up all the world's resources. They will be at war with themselves soon if they don't halt this overpopulation.

I wouldn't worry too much about the Chinese expanding and taking over an entire continent. They won't be able to maintain modern infrastructure and organizations, let alone build them, since the Magic of Dirt will turn them into yellow Africans. Obvs.

Was talking to Chinese h1b coworker from rural part of China. He remembered as a child neighbors hiding pregnant ladies from inspectors.

One tragic story where there was an inspection and forced abortion while a man was away from his home. He went to the inspector office screaming and waving one of those Chinese butcher knives. They left his family alone when there was another pregnancy.

Coworker thought it was not right. He has general distrust/apathy towards Chinese government.

Nope, Dirt Magic only applies to First World countries. Us white South Africans have been in Africa for several generations, and we're still not considered Africans. But take a Zulu from here, put him on a 'plane to London and give him a piece of paper that says he's a "UK Citizen", and "poof" - he's British. Or something.

Projection for Chinese future:
1. Key problem: Too many males.
A. The Red Army marches to nearby countries. If you're a corporal you get a Thai wife; Sergeants get a Vietnamese; Lieutenants get Korean wife....

The tactics are heavy on artillery and low on banzai charges in order to save the precious single children of their parents.

2. Beijing becomes Big Gay Steve's very fabulous and favorite town in the world, surpassing Frisco in the degeneracy race.

3. Several smaller cities pick up the practise of courtesans, young lovelies who serve as escorts to a group of sailors and international travellers. Supposedly Venice had this. Such a relationship stays stable for years, but only a few weeks every six months for each guy.

4. Ultra Alphas. The very best of the best of the Han pushed to the utmost.

China does go into Africa but it lacks the people to colonize. It goes in as a ruthless overlord. Remember, massive birth booms drove the English colonizations. China doesn't have that.

It would be an interesting bit of theory for someone more historically knowledgeable to compare China as England vs. India as France.

Also, guys....everyone here is very eager to tell me that Africans are totally useless. So, then, why do we care if the Chinese take Africa?

Africa, the continent, is not useless.
