The imperial overreach of the corpocrats

Back in December, Ron Unz observed that sooner or later, China is very likely to strike back against the out-of-control imperial corpocracy that currently rules the USA:
Since the end of the Cold War, the American government has become increasingly delusional, regarding itself as the Supreme World Hegemon. As a result, local American courts have begun enforcing gigantic financial penalties against foreign countries and their leading corporations, and I suspect that the rest of the world is tiring of this misbehavior. Perhaps such actions can still be taken against the subservient vassal states of Europe, but by most objective measures, the size of China’s real economy surpassed that of the US several years ago and is now substantially larger, while also still having a far higher rate of growth. Our totally dishonest mainstream media regularly obscures this reality, but it remains true nonetheless.

Provoking a disastrous worldwide confrontation with mighty China by seizing and imprisoning one of its leading technology executives reminds me of a comment I made several years ago about America’s behavior under the rule of its current political elites:

Or to apply a far harsher biological metaphor, consider a poor canine infected with the rabies virus. The virus may have no brain and its body-weight is probably less than one-millionth that of the host, but once it has seized control of the central nervous system, the animal, big brain and all, becomes a helpless puppet.

Once friendly Fido runs around foaming at the mouth, barking at the sky, and trying to bite all the other animals it can reach. Its friends and relatives are saddened by its plight but stay well clear, hoping to avoid infection before the inevitable happens, and poor Fido finally collapses dead in a heap.

 Normal countries like China naturally assume that other countries like the US will also behave in normal ways, and their dumbfounded shock at Ms. Meng’s seizure has surely delayed their effective response. In 1959, Vice President Richard Nixon visited Moscow and famously engaged in a heated “kitchen debate” with Premier Nikita Khrushchev over the relative merits of Communism and Capitalism. What would have been the American reaction if Nixon had been immediately arrested and given a ten year Gulag sentence for “anti-Soviet agitation”?

Since a natural reaction to international hostage-taking is retaliatory international hostage-taking, the newspapers have reported that top American executives have decided to forego visits to China until the crisis is resolved. These days, General Motors sells more cars in China than in the US, and China is also the manufacturing source of nearly all our iPhones, but Tim Cook, Mary Barra, and their higher-ranking subordinates are unlikely to visit that country in the immediate future, nor would the top executives of Google, Facebook, Goldman Sachs, and the leading Hollywood studios be willing to risk indefinite imprisonment.
And there is nary an American who would shed a tear if they were imprisoned indefinitely over there. It's such a shame that the Meng arrest didn't take place before Mark Zuckerberg's visit to China....

I wonder, could we get the Chinese to kidnap Zuckerberg and hold him hostage until Meng is released? It would be a win-win for everyone except Zuckerberg. Just a random thought.

"These days, General Motors sells more cars in China than in the US"

That would be because they're cheap, buzzy pieces of garbage and are no longer built in the USA, so Americans see zero reason to continue whatever tenuous loyalty they used to have.

Anyone who cares about American workers will be buying compact-class 4-door sedans from "foreign" makes that are universally made in the southeastern US by Americans.

Yesterday Americans could travel the world with near impunity, "Anything for Adventure."
Yesterday goods and people crossed borders without a care, "Anything for Profit."
Yesterday behavioral boundaries were discarded in favor of "Anything for Self-Actualization."

Yesterday and Today we still believe that Nirvana is one-more-law and one-more-dollar-borrowed-and-spent away.

Today it's execs who feel unsafe to visit a competing world power.
Today it's a Georgia citizen with a concealed carry permit visiting New Jersey, where they can be pulled over by the NJ State Police (tipped by an automated license plate reader) and their car, even their trunk, searched for a firearm.

Tomorrow a citizen of Texas will fear visiting Washington State.

The borderless world is a product of a Mania^2 in high social mood.
Border-free behavior is a product of the same Mania^2, as is the belief that hundreds of trillions of dollars in future cash flows (IOU's, bonds, pensions, entitlements, etc.) will actually be DELIVERED on time at full value.

It all rests on Trust/Openness/Optimism/Altruism raised to mass psychosis...and it will run its course and end. Then things will be very, very different.

Walls will be the new fashion. Crossing them will return to being exotic, because not all who take that adventure will survive to return from it.

There's the Paul Singer/ Christina Kirchner of Argentina going bankrupt thing. He took payment: one of their battleships: I'm vague on the details. But it seems to me that the sort of person who campaigns against regular Americans owning guns maybe shouldn't be allowed to own a battleship?

We are already lawless: the Obama era clawbacks and shakedowns of the banking industry and the energy industries are only described in foreign press articles. It's so piratical that the writers sound astonished and perplexed. They aren't sure how to describe what happened each step of the way, and how piratical each action was.

I mean, I'm at the point that I'm thinking- why not? Why not go Henry VIII and do a massive clawback on all private university endowments? Use the money to pay off student debts, balance the government budget, build a wall? Then shrug, and say we are bankrupt, and the being not paying into, I don't know, research, government endowments, the CDC, UN, and so on? I mean, seriously, the CDC can't keep Atlanta from being a cesspit of bacterial and viral populations. Why should it be in charge of the world?

Americans are remarkably generous: maybe they want to invest in their own states or regions? The local schools here have foundations. The libraries have foundations. Maybe kids would prefer to volunteer to help build Houses for Humanity in Mississippi, rather than Haiti?

Do the Chinese read Ron Unz? He's rather clever at this economic warfare business.

My workplace sent out a company-wide (and this is an American company with locations all across the Anglosphere) email with three petitions for all employees to sign demanding the White House cease tariff increases on Chinese imports and goods, as it will “severely impact” the business.

Obviously I’m not even opening those petitions, but a wise coworker and I discussed how pathetic it is for this company to have benefitted from a major trade deficit that harms its home nation for decades, and then have the nerve to use scare tactics on its employees about market consequences when it’s obvious that they will be at worst a momentary cost blip until domestic businesses adapt to the new tariffs. American companies like the one I work at, are run by shortsighted boomers looking to leave at a corporate peak and let everyone below them suffer. The long game for the company’s future supports the balancing of foreign trade deficits through tariffs. My coworker summed it up well “it’s like a trust fund kid writing a petition to his parents for lowering his monthly allowance from them, not realizing he isn’t owed that money in the first place but having existed in a fantasy for so long he doesn’t know how ridiculous he sounds”.

@8 Commenting (anywhere) is for me a vice, one I struggle to manage (and would prefer to eliminate entirely.) I have a monomania combined with a mouth...it's a bad combination. "My name is [ ] and I have a problem."

I concur with your sentiment. In Chicago or Baltimore, where blacks now run the States Attorney's office, it is beyond obvious that they enforce laws based on melanin content and one can reasonably surmise that YT, no longer able to depend on civilization to suppress criminality, is left to DIY. This is bad enough, but it's beyond certain that any YT who defended himself from a black mob would be at high risk of bankrupting trial-until-guilty.

We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto.

Travel now to "see the sights," because when social mood finally rolls over (a prospect I've expected wrongly for 25 strait years so I've stopped stupidly predicting its imminence) then the nascent trends we see in this example will manifest across the board. I think retiring to "travel the country in an RV" will be as quaint a notion as is riding a horse to do so today. Everywhere but home will be in Indian Country.

You also must have missed the intense online censorship, as well as the leaked docs that show social media companies are working with folks like the ADL to turn using their platforms into the same basic system.
The debanking, deplatforming, etc., is often at the behest of politicians, so don't look for those folks to bail you out.
As far as organ harvesting goes, that biz has been around in North America/Central America for a long time, as well as adult/child sex slavery.

Was this posted on the wrong thread? In any case, I think you'll find little support for the idea that men should have very few rights regarding abortion, divorce, child custody, etc. here.

I spoke for a good hour with a academic who is trying to conduct basic economic research in China.

He publishes it, but it's based on best guesses and secondary indicators. The figures are collected, but would never be shown to a foreigner. Anything that does come out is like tractor production statistics from the USSR.

China is far from a normal country. For all the kvetching about the looming Hitler threat, nobody dares call China out for about as close to the Hitler regime than any other country in recent years which has been accused of it.

And our lying press covers up all of the theft of American technology and from what I have heard, entire production lines have been outright stolen from American companies setting up manufacturing in China.

We created this monster out of hubris and the thought that everyone wants to live under globohomo complete with gay pride orgies in the streets and being overrun by foreigners.

The US has maintained effective control of the SWIFT system, maintained the dollar's central role in international finance, and built a virtual financial wall around the US that keeps ordinary Americans' capital trapped here while offering foreigners some of the best banking secrecy in the world. The tariffs on Chinese goods just happen to coincide with them making real progress in bypassing both SWIFT and the need for dollars.

This makes me sad since I grew up traveling the country in an RV. Yes, my parents are Boomers, but they did a lot of their traveling with their kids instead of waiting until we'd all left. I've heard the wind on the prairies, followed the ocean up the East Coast, and been to more battlefields and national parks than you can shake a stick at. So many good memories.

I hate to think that perhaps this too is something else my kids will miss. We've taken them camping, but with babies coming on the regular we haven't been able just pick up and roam cross country with a tent and an ice chest.

It's not IQ, it's sociopathy. The tribe, vis-a-vis the native population, has no loyalty, no literal skin in the game, so it behaves in a sociopathic manner towards the host nation. Natives -unless they themselves are sociopaths - recoil at practices that fleece their own kind, but an outsider, member of a cohesive tribe has a natural, inborn sense of sociopathy towards the host nation. Sociopathy by virtue of outsider status: a powerful force by which to gain advantage but, of course, extremely destructive to the host nation.

Yes, be grateful. Under pressure from the Reagan administration (I believe) Japanese initiated the policy of manufacturing the cars for the American market in the USA, and this is how it should be. Said pressure by Reagan was one of the few good things that came out of the administration. And President Trump is just trying to do this on a much grander scale so that entire industries can be brought back and manufactured in the USA. But, oh, how the Cucks hate this. If the Cucks had had their way with Reagan there would not be a single Japanese car manufactured in the USA and America's working class and the industry that feeds auto manufacturing would be so much poorer. Just damn the Cucks. Damn everything about them.

When someone uses a term like "normal country", I recognize two options:
1. Let it be and move on.
2. Ask them to define what they mean by the term.

They are using a term which has no well-known formal definition so until they define what they mean by it, it is effectively meaningless. Once they define the term, you can decide whether you agree with the definition and its application.

"And this 5G tech everyone is paranoid over is likely quantum entanglement, like they use in satellites. Uncrackable as far as I know."

NOBODY uses "quantum entanglement" for communications purposes. And every single example of how to use it for "faster than light" communication overlooks one fundamental fact -- quantum entanglement only holds true for as long as BOTH entangled particles remain free of any interaction (such as particle interactions, polarization, etc.).

As soon as a polarization operation is done on a particle, the conditions of quantum entanglement no longer apply.

All the talk of "Quantum Entanglement gives use the ability to have faster-than-light communication" is literally evidence that even abject midwits can get a PhD in physics these days.
