Geopolitics update, June 2024
With Lena Petrova ... With Thinkers Forum ... With Ben Norton ... With Brian Berletic ... With Hakim ... With The Gravel Institute ... With Cyrus Janssen ... With Democracy Now ... YT comment : "I always thought that the Chinese people were brainwashed, and then I found out that it was me!" Some thoughts on why China is such a safe country : At root, crime is down to poverty and an over-the-top individualism. Western style democracy is really divide and rule - the moneyed elite love it, how the people are so easily fooled and controlled. Projection - what the West accuses China of are actually its own faults. Western democracy is top down and all about big money. In China, democracy is bottom up and meritocratic. The reason for the West's antagonism is not about politics, but success; the US wants to control the whole world (hegemony); and Western style democracy, if they can establish it in other countries, makes that easy. Friendly people are happy people.

Planning war on China – part 39 – the very last part – so don’t miss it
With Brian Berletic, Ben Norton, Aaron Mate, DDN, George Galloway ... * A comment from the dEVIL : "In the West, I have freedom - to do whatever I feel like. Wherever big money and privilege rule, I can trample and destroy whoever I like; and fool you however I wish ! So easy : ) Resist me, and you are my projection (the 'evil one' - lol; you're just trash). I am me, the greatest and noblest, and you are my slave, er, 'equal' (trust me); but I am your master, well, I am superior; I am the Ministry of Truth. I control everything you know. Just believe. Don't mess with reality when I can protect you with my fantasies." * ** Reply to dEVIL : You are nothing but a fake memory. On awakening, you are gone. The dEVIL has no clothes. ~~~ Save this link - before it disappears, in the name of free speech ; ) ~~~ : It is not about 'me'; it is about 'we'. That is oneness; i.e. love. : Only fear keeps us separate. : Love is the absence of fear. MEANWHILE (back in the civilized world) : The ShangHai metro ... SanLiTun night walk, BeiJing ... The 'China threat' - the 'threat' of a good example - a better path, better life. : In China, the people are family; and the people of the world are all family. : In the West, the 'people', are merely livestock to an elite. Final thought : in this series of posts we have looked at many places around the globe, yet hopefully it is clear by now that it all is part of a master plan to subjugate China. And all of Asia / the 'South'. And you, wherever you are. A tiny, tiny minority subjugating the people of Earth, suffocating their development and well-being; their joy and happiness and dreams. Wish this to be the last in the series. Let's see. UPDATE : Yes, part 39 will be the last. But your favorite voices will continue in a new page called Geopolitics, similar to Expat Voices (to be renamed Travel Voices). Brian, Ben, Angelo, Daniel ... will all be there; auto-updated. Here soon ... (It was actually planned months ago, that's why the geopolitics people disappeared from the Expat Voices page - to move to a new page, but till now has not been constructed. But it will be now - BB has said all we can say and wish to concentrate on travel and culture hence). We also want to say a thank you to the contributors for all their hard work and suggest that if you can do support their invaluable input. Let's hope there is a tomorrow - see you then.
