Ah.  What's the "issue" du jour?

I thought it was how Chinese corporations work for the people?

I would have thought you'd be ecstatic to hear that (?!)

They exist for THE PEOPLE, kropotkin.

ed'd to ask:

1.  are Canadians actually emigrating to China, and if not, why not?  WWWTT has been making it clear for a while that China is totally awesome, and their government is totally awesome, and if their corporations work for the people then that's just gravy on the cake!

2.  I've never had the sense that you care for Canadian corporations -- you can say, if I got that wrong -- so isn't it at least tempting to move to China, where the corporations will work for YOU?  If you'd rather stay here and bemoan... well, why?  That's like saying "I don't want to move under that awning; I'd rather gripe about the rain", yes?

Magoo I do not agree with any of your stupid statements. I know, I know I just have to understand that in your world view any country not dominated by US banksters is a rogue nation and must be vilified.

Carry on with  your Cold War posts since you seem to be incapable of any other kind of thinking.

China just increased their family child limit from one to two. Our friends from Bei Hai in southern Guangxi province(fastest growing city in the world by the way) just gave birth to a daughter. Their second child. They now have a boy and girl. 

China isn’t looking for immigrants. Increasing the population isn’t an issue like in Canada or Australia and other countries. That says something in itself now doesn’t it!

Have I actually said any such thing, tho?

If I google "site:rabble.ca magoo rogue nation" will I really get to read about all those countries that I think need to be dominated by "US banksters"?

OK.  And you carry on yammering about "Russophobia", which is just the cold war from the other point of view.

My question wasn't actually about China wanting population increase, it was about Canadians, who don't care for Canadian corporations trying to rob them, and whether they might rather live in a country in which the corporations work for the people!

I'm glad Chinese parents are free to have TWO children now, though.  The Chinese government is not just wise, but generous!  I yearn for the day that people unfortunate enough to live in a country other than China can similarly have a second child -- even if it's another girl!  Why can't all countries permit two children like China??

Actually your comment is a good example of trolling and baiting. 

You keep changing around “what it is you mean”

if I actually tried to answer your question, I would be just taking the bait you set. 

So let ma ask you this Mr. Magoo, how many Chinese people do you think chairman Mao killed?

With his own two hands?  I'll go with 'none'.

That's an old "Trivial Pursuit" strategy, though.  When the question is "how many... [whatever]" the answer probably isn't "twenty three" or "one hundred, forty eight" -- it's probably either "zero" or "all of them".  Those are the best guesses, anyway.

When have you ever posted anything that was not obtuse and subject to change when anyone calls you on its implied contents? Your style is boring, repetitive and annoying but not really all that hard to see through. I just have to call you on it sometimes because it is just so f'ing constantly discussion killing.

Then discuss around it.  Think of my posts as an ad, and ignore them like you would an ad.  Don't be fragile if you want to change the world.

Jeez, Louise.

LMAOFROF Thanks Magoo your response made my day. I love it when people prove my point.

Mr. Magoo Mr. Magoo's picture

I didn't prove your point.  You proved it yourself by typing "LMAOFROF" -- that makes it clear to all that you must have bested me in rhetorical combat or whatever.  It's the Royal Flush of discussion boards.

Anyway... slow day??

WWWTT

I didn't prove your point.  You proved it yourself by typing "LMAOFROF" --

ya actually you did, and you’re proving his point again because what you’re writing makes no sense. 

Just like when I asked you how many people chairman Mao killed.

It makes sense, WWWTT.  You just don't agree with it, and that's not the same.

Quote:

And now that you mention it, I'm still waiting on your authoritative answer.  Allow me to guess again:  he killed a million, but Xi Jinping brought them all back to life, and now they're prosperous and happy.

His statue isn't going to carve itself, WWWTT.  Back to work!

WWWTT

It makes sense, WWWTT.  You just don't agree with it, and that's not the same.

lol! You would think that if someone didn’t agree with something, then they would just say “hey I don’t agree with what you’re writing”. But I gues that’s just too easy? Or or or, like kopotkin mentioned earlier, your just playing your games again. 

And now that you mention it, I'm still waiting on your authoritative answer.

The only thing you’re waiting for is the next opportunity to say I’m carving a statue of Xi Jin Ping. After all that’s the only reason you come to this thread. 

I find it kind of funny that there’s Europe descended people that are so jealous and envious of a non European or European descent country of communist China. You have spun this one around so many times that you’ve actually developed your writing style here on babble in this China thread. At least the dark side of your style anyways.

President of Russia Interview with China Media Group

http://en.kremlin.ru/events/president/news/57684

"... Russia and China are neighbours. We have been interacting for centuries and our historical ties and roots go very deep. It is not by chance that in recent decades as neighbors, we have built a relationship that probably cannot be compared with anything in the world. It is truly built on consideration of each other's interests.

He [President Xi] is a very accessible and sincere person. But at the same time he is a very reliable partner. I look forward to good positive relations.

We are not surprised by any restrictions or sanctions. This does not frighten us and will never force us to abandon our independent, sovereign path of development. I believe Russia will be sovereign, or it will not exist at all. And, of course, the Russian people will always choose the first. I think the Chinese people feel the same."

I think there are some opportunities being missed with China. The Chinese governement is of the opinion that a prosperous middle income group is essential to stability in the country and is bringing its industrial policy in line with higher wages. Many of its interests are more aligned with developed countries than they have been previously.

There was an opportunity to change the direction with Russia 20 years ago and I think this was blown. I beleive there is an opportunity now with China. Shutting out China will create a nationalism and aggression from that government that might be avoided if a different path were to be taken now. Part of the problem here is that the western allies cannot simply address these countries by denying all their security concerns and economic ambitions. Before this gets to a severe stage these could be moderated -- especially where they can be seen to be responses to provocations and aggression from those western allies.

China Pledges $20 Billion in Loans to Middle East and Aid For Palestine

"Beijing has prepared a package of $20 billion in loans and about $106 million in financial aid, for Middle East nations, including Palestine, Reuters reports. China has traditionally played a small role in the Middle East, but has recently been increasing its influence..."

Tom Dispatch has a long, interesting article up by the historian Alfred McCoy. In it, he reflects on the likelihood of China becoming the next global hegemon, a process immeasurably aided by the utter incompetence of Trump.

Alfred McCoy wrote:

China’s bid couldn’t have been more fortuitous in its timing. After nearly 70 years as the globe’s hegemon, Washington’s dominance over the world economy had begun to wither and its once-superior work force to lose its competitive edge. By 2016, in fact, the dislocations brought on by the economic globalization that had gone with American dominion sparked a revolt of the dispossessed in democracies worldwide and in the American heartland, bringing the self-proclaimed “populist” Donald Trump to power. Determined to check his country’s decline, he has adopted an aggressive and divisive foreign policy that has roiled long-established alliances in both Asia and Europe and is undoubtedly giving that decline new impetus.

Within months of Trump’s entry into the Oval Office, the world was already witnessing a sharp rivalry between Xi’s advocacy of a new form of global collaboration and Trump’s version of economic nationalism. In the process, humanity seems to be entering a rare historical moment when national leadership and global circumstances have coincided to create an opening for a major shift in the nature of the world order.

Yellow Scare is Back: America's New China Strategy (and podcast)

https://sptnkne.ws/jGwg

"Vice President Mike Pence gave a high profile, hardline speech at the Hudson Institute today that China is the world's greatest military and economic threat, and he risks inflaming an already delicate relationship. In a speech that set a new tone in bilateral relations and seeks to confront China directly, Pence argues that Beijing is a hostile military power to both the US and regional countries and that the Chinese government has meddled in US elections and will do so again. Pence also argued that China's strong economy is a threat to global financial stability..."

Both China and Russia are dangerous to the US. It did not have to be that way.

In many respects both countries have become more hostile to the US as that country has become more hostile to them.

I think Putin is pretty bad. But I think the US has been a significant contributor to his consolidation of power.  There was a window for Russia to be more open to countries that are now rivals. In many ways it was their hostility that made the current situation inevitable and made the stranglehold he has on that country a reality.

In China it is also true. China has become more extreme and hostile to the world as the world has increasingly been that way to them.

In both cases a reading of history would be helpful.

Russia learned that invaders come from the west. There was a window during which time NATO could have been reformed and Russia a part of that alliance and a relationship for Russia and Europe. Ukraine has also been caught in this: by being accepted while Russia was rejected, fuel was poured on their divisions.

Most North Americans don't know history. The Chinese do study their recent history. They are well aware of what Europe and the US has done to them. This is a country humiliated less than two hundred years ago by the treaty ports as each country participated in a gang-mugging of China. This is a country that will become more dangerous to the US with every bit of hostility and aggression they see coming from the US.
