Everything is spiraling out of control.  

The European economy is sinking despite Draghi's quantitative easing.  The US economy is trying to achieve two equilibrium states at the same time - having the strongest currency against which all the other currencies are pegged, which will crush its exports to pulp, and being the strongest economy from which all countries will import their food, machineries, cars, electronics, software, and industrial products - which explains why its stock market would one day shoot up to the skies and the next day head down to the pits.  And China is having its "China Dream" of flying high above the dollar even, powered with its overvalued Yuan, except that it is using up 10% of its fuel (foreign currency reserve) every six months, 20% every year, for 2 years now, and facing the headwinds of decreased export earnings, the new wave of capital flight from its New Corruption (replacement for the Old Corruption), euphemistically lumped together as the "New Normal", which will likely use up its fuel at an even faster rate.  In short, if peace is war by other means, and if the economy is the engine for peace, then the logical conclusion is that when everything falls apart everywhere, the only means for any country of resource is to take by force what it cannot obtain by trade or exchange.

The means of signaling strength, inducing fear and submission, or defiance against aggression, are getting less and less abstract, and becoming more and more concrete, more substantial, qualitatively and quantitatively, and more imminently deployable - again, in preparation for the coming Brave New World.  Poroshenko smelled the smoke of war wafting through the air and wisely sought a compromise peace, but is failing because his own hardline backers would not budge an inch.  Assad smelled the smoke of gunpowder from his palace and is calling in Russia to save his forces from rout and annihilation.  And China is on the cusp of establishing its sovereignty over its islands and peaceful reunification of Taiwan, but its fuel has been spent in an ego-boosting trip of Yuan revaluation, causing its manufacturing sector to meltdown, and may never reach the far shore, even if it were just 100 miles away.  And the US markets face the twin sisters of hyperinflation if the Fed does not raise interest rates, and economic recession if it does raise rates.  Japan is ready to go to war with China, any day now, having put to sail its second aircraft carrier (for now carrying helicopters, but ready to carry planes at any time).  With China gushing blood from its self-inflicted Yuan-overvaluation wounds, its friends, its dearest trading partners, such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Brazil, Kazakhstan and Russia are all swooning from anemia as well.  Where is China's sense of collective responsibility to its closest friends?  None!  Call it "leadership"?  Nada.

Truly, this is the end of the Year of Jubilee, come September 12, 2015, the year closes.

And judgment begins.

IT IS NOT THE ECONOMY, BUT THE LAND, STUPID . . . THE NEW EDEN.

In the end, it is the land, the air, and the rivers that really matter.  Keeping the invaders out of the Heartland of the Earth will be the real pivot of history, after the economic and political order of the 20th century has vanished.  China is not worried about the Pivot to Asia, but about the real pivot of human history, which is the land mass extending from the North Pole to the Ural Mountains, the Himalayas, and the river delta of the Yangtze River.  Never mind if all currencies turn into ashes.  Or stocks turn into dust.  The soil, the water, and the air of Eurasia, centered on Siberia, Mongolia, Manchuria, gartered on its southern tier by the New Silk Road and Belt, immune to the ravages of the pirates and maritime powers.  This, not elsewhere, is where the future of mankind will be decided, and where the future of China and its allies will be defended.

Wow, "brave new world", that wonderful phrase has been pedalled around for several hundred years by now, isn't its time well and truly past? When does the next Miranda start talking about the more cowardly old world ?

Five more days for Japan to repent of its third war of aggression against China.  Forgiveness is available only until the end of this Jubilee year.  After that, no more forgiveness.  Measured in dollars, that is equivalent to 30 trillion dollars or more, in lives hundreds of millions, and in peace of mind, infinity.

Look at what Abe has accomplished . . . in Diaoyudao/Senkaku . . . and despair.

JAPAN SHOULD REPENT WHEN FORGIVENESS IS READY TO BE GIVEN . . . BUT ONLY 5 DAYS LEFT.

IF JAPAN DOES NOT IMMEDIATELY DISAVOW ITS INTENT TO TAKE DIAOYUDAO, AND ACCEPT ITS OBLIGATION TO RETURN IT TO CHINA AS PART OF ITS TERMS OF SURRENDER OF 1945, JAPAN WOULD BE IN VIOLATION OF ITS SURRENDER TREATY, AND CHINA HAS THE RIGHT TO ENFORCE THIS INTERNATIONAL TREATY SIGNED BY JAPAN AND CHINA INCLUDED, AS SPELLED OUT IN THE SAME TREATY ALA THE POTSDAM PROCLAMATION OF 1945.

CHINA WILL NOT ASK JAPAN TO REPENT ANY MORE.

HAVING INVITED ABE TO THE VICTORY PARADE WAS SUFFICIENT COURTESY.  AFTER FIVE DAYS, THE YEAR OF FORGIVENESS OF PAST DEBTS ENDS, AND THE BOOKS OF LIFE AND DEATH WILL BE OPENED, WRITTEN ON, AND SEALED.  AND NO AMOUNT OF WORSHIPPING AT YASUKUNI CAN CHANGE THE DECREE OF HEAVEN UNTIL ITS WILL HAS BEEN FULFILLED.
