In the least, do not follow the U.S. lead in bribing officials to get into elite schools.
This fraudulent behavior, together with the irresponsiveness of the FAA to the two 737 -8MAX disasters in Indonesia and Ethiopia, are the two clinical signs of how sick the U.S. truly is today.
When Harvard admitted China's student dissidents like Wu..er K.ai..xi in the aftermath of the '89 disturbance in the nation's capital, I knew that the admissions policies of U.S. Ivy League schools could be manipulated according to the political needs of the U.S. establishment.
The admissions boards of those schools were under the guidance of 'liberal' influence-peddlers and politicians like Ted Kennedy, who welcomed Wu..er -- an "F" student in his first year at Beijing's prestigious Normal University -- with open arms while sailing with him in his yacht.
I've also heard about the alumni of those schools who contributed funds in the million- dollar range towards the establishment of new buildings in order to have their kids enroll in the same school, and I wasn't too astonished about that either.
And so we now know there were sons and daughters of foreign dignitaries who were able to enroll at those elite schools using whatever means at their disposal at the time.
So does that mean that all such children did a great job on SAT or admissions tests?
You can sure answer that question yourself.
What people didn't realize until this scandal broke into the open was that you can bribe through an 'agent' with US$20K -- $50K and get into a top-notch school of your choice.
That is a sure sign that America's downfall is happening right before our eyes -- the social fabric of the entire rotten edifice is breaking down brick by brick like a black-and-white time-lapse movie in the Silent Film Era of the 1920s.
So the two events mentioned at the beginning of this essay are tell-tale signs that the American empire is at best in the throes of a death-bed struggle.
Many parents -- domestic and foreign -- are probably losing sleep this week because there will be probes into how their proficiency-lacking children got into those top schools in the first place.
That's also why I am dead against any potential foreign leaders sending their kids to study in the U.S. because if anything goes wrong -- like if you did something unmentionable to get your kid into certain schools, or he did badly in school whether socially or academically, or your spouse had an affair or committed a crime without your knowledge -- you are susceptible to be on their blackmail list.
That means in the future you will have to follow their dictations during bilateral talks or negotiations or else they will expose those things which either you, your spouse or your children did when they were in that country.
Both the Indonesian and Ethiopian air disasters were predictable and weren't accidents by any stretch of imagination. The software that substituted for expensive, fundamental re-hashing the 737 design was hastily brought into the industry without adequate testing.
That's why foreign pilots flying the 8-MAX planes weren't even informed that the planes had the MCAS software designed to override their manual operations because the company was afraid that pilots wouldn't want to fly the planes if they could be automatically overridden by the auto-pilot.
The FAA -- the U.S. agency that regulates aircraft safety -- knew how unsafe Boeing 737-8-MAX was, but failed to notify not only its global customers, but even the non-U.S. pilots who were operating those planes.
