China Tested A Fractional Orbital Bombardment System That Uses A Hypersonic Glide Vehicle

Such a capability could potentially allow China to execute a nuclear strike on any target on earth with near-impunity and very little warning. BY TYLER ROGOWAY  Areport from Financial Times’ Demetri Sevastopulo and Kathrin Hille states that China has tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic glide vehicle that goes into space and traverses the globe in an orbital-like fashion before making its run through the atmosphere toward its target. There would be huge implications if such a system were to be operationalized, and according to this story, which says it talked to five officials confirming the test, the U.S. government was caught totally off-guard by it. The trial flight … Continue reading China Tested A Fractional Orbital Bombardment System That Uses A Hypersonic Glide Vehicle

It Is No Longer Glorious To Get Rich In China

China’s “socialist market economy” won’t mimic Western-style capitalism just as democracy has not followed from prosperity. BY NATHAN GARDELS – Nathan Gardels is the editor-in-chief of Noema Magazine. “To get rich is glorious,” China’s then paramount leader, Deng Xiaoping, declared at the outset of China’s “reform and opening up” in the 1980s. This was his provocative rejoinder in those days to the just-vanquished Gang of Four and others in the Cultural Revolution who had long castigated his views on rapid development as “taking the capitalist road.” In the ensuing decades, the robust enterprise Deng unshackled was a key factor, along with … Continue reading It Is No Longer Glorious To Get Rich In China

CHINA’S ‘SOCIAL CREDIT’ SYSTEM HAS ARRIVED TO AMERICA

Simon Black, Sovereign Man Waking Times As a journalist in China, Liu Hu was no stranger to punishment. For reporting on corruption among government officials, Hu was arrested, accused of “fabricating and spreading rumours,” and fined. But then one day in 2017 he suddenly found that he was unable to buy a plane ticket. The system just rejected him. He also found he couldn’t purchase certain train tickets. Then he discovered that he was unable to acquire a loan from any bank, and even forbidden from buying property at all. Eventually Liu Hu discovered his name on a government “List of … Continue reading CHINA’S ‘SOCIAL CREDIT’ SYSTEM HAS ARRIVED TO AMERICA

Communist China successfully killing the West with coronavirus

(Natural News) What most people fail to realize is that the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccination drive is priming the bodies of people who get jabbed to be killed off by future bioweapons. by: Ethan Huff Unlike traditional vaccines, the messenger RNA (mRNA) “vaccines” from Pfizer, BioNTech, and Moderna do not produce matching antibodies for Chinese virus infection. Instead, they tell the body to produce spike proteins that elicit their own immune response, complete with unique antibodies that are different from the ones brought about by natural infection. What this means is that people who get vaccinated for the WuFlu not only gain no protection whatsoever against the “wild” virus, … Continue reading Communist China successfully killing the West with coronavirus

Confucius on Good Government, the 6 Steps to a Harmonious Society, and Self-Discipline as the Key to Democracy

“Things have roots and branches… If the root be in confusion, nothing will be well governed.” BY MARIA POPOVA Two and a half millennia before Leonard Cohen wrote in his timeless and tender ode to democracy that “the heart has got to open in a fundamental way,” the ancient Chinese philosopher and statesman Confucius (551–479 BCE) recognized the indelible link between personal and political morality, recognized that interpersonal kindness is the foundation of social justice, recognized that democracy — a form of government only just invented on the other side of the globe in ancient Greece, not to take root in his own culture … Continue reading Confucius on Good Government, the 6 Steps to a Harmonious Society, and Self-Discipline as the Key to Democracy

To be creative, Chinese philosophy teaches us to abandon ‘originality’

Julianne Chungis assistant professor of philosophy at York University in Toronto. She is associate editor of the journal Oxford Studies in Epistemology and vice president of the Canadian Society for Women in Philosophy. Edited by Sally Davies When I was 15, one of my closest friends died unexpectedly. Our physics teacher broke the news to me after I’d sat an exam, having wondered all the way through why my friend wasn’t there doing the same. I still don’t have the words to describe how I felt: it was something approaching shock, distress, disorientation. I didn’t know what to think, much less what to … Continue reading To be creative, Chinese philosophy teaches us to abandon ‘originality’

The Panopticon Is Already Here

Xi Jinping is using artificial intelligence to enhance his government’s totalitarian control—and he’s exporting this technology to regimes around the globe. by Ross Andersen Northwest of beijing’s Forbidden City, outside the Third Ring Road, the Chinese Academy of Sciences has spent seven decades building a campus of national laboratories. Near its center is the Institute of Automation, a sleek silvery-blue building surrounded by camera-studded poles. The institute is a basic research facility. Its computer scientists inquire into artificial intelligence’s fundamental mysteries. Their more practical innovations—iris recognition, cloud-based speech synthesis—are spun off to Chinese tech giants, AI start-ups, and, in some cases, the People’s … Continue reading The Panopticon Is Already Here
