S: Thank you for the noodles. Shouldn't i have paid?|
H: It's alright. Pleasure all mine. Next round on you.
S: What do you think of China's growth?
H: One can appreciate the challenges of economic policymakers. How to maintain continuous growth to pull the rest up while dependent to some extent on other economies to keep those who have come up going ....ergo, how to make all moderately rich before many become immoderately old.
Nevertheless, the present growth has surprised even the best of the west. The profits have increased which are understandably being re-invested in financial housekeeping in many of the outperforming businesses in preparation for the next wave of growth by prudently reducing loan exposure.
S: Nonetheless, do you also think it is better to be number two in a fast-growing world than number one in a stagnant one?
H: Your question is actually another. How much has the west invested in the development infrastructures of emerging economies?
Very little i would add. On the other hand, China has literally moved mountains to help other countries emerge faster by building on commercial BOT terms for them what they direly needed now in order to move their men and goods so as to earn more and lift up their own poor in the same way she has done for hers. She could as well have used the funds for herself, no?
If she had only thought of herself exclusively like what the western colonialists had done, today she would already be number one many times over. (Sucks tooth)...Don't you agree?
S: I can think of India, Myanmar, Philippines, Indonesia, even Vietnam, what more Chile, let alone all of Africa.
H: Some sulfuric hoofs will of course gallop in to suggest she binds those she helps with her loans but i remember she has forgiven many of the debts of African nations while continuing to provide ongoing manpower support and market for their produce.
Besides, it is important for any success that the right motivation is used. Aid receivers too want to be able to earn on their own steam but that would however take learning time, given how much they were neglected in the first place in those days of rapacious colonialists. Don't believe me? Ask those descended from the slave trade.
S: I too notice most of the western media which were quite virulent about China's success with her African brothers have become solidly stolid in their quietus.
H: (crooks one eyebrow; only) Failing with a rising Africa, their media focus moved next to Asia north and east to ruffle both land and sea; stopped in their tracks, they are now back to Asia central and south, playing the talibans whom they had used against the USSR and then turning on them via Afghanistan which was followed by next trying to deputize Pakistan against Afghanistan, now turning on Pakistan by deliberately siding with India via a trumphic speech which will of course transmute India to be their next organ monkey and arrogated stopper of the very 1B1R they have on the other hand given perfunctory nod which even India cannot deny would uplift many poor such as in its own midst.
Eagle, or snake, you don't have to inquire anymore. Next will be balochistan in Pakistan. But have their jewish think-tankers given thought that Pakistan is as theocratic as both tribes of the....Middle East? Do their masters want another wave of jihads besides kidnappings by kids in loins? Serendipitily silly, yes?
Taking a fuller cognizance of long-horizon history, who is therefore today not acquainted with the broken record of the musical chairs of imperial mischief?
S: But that is geopolitics, not economics, yes?
H: In today's multi-polar world, the dance between geopolitics and economics has become a riotous rumba when it should be a graceful waltz.
Failing to disrupt economic growth of others unless they want to fire a "smith & wesson self-shooting revolver", they are now disrupting positive geopolitics and replacing it with the muddy water of ideological alignment cooked in the curry-house kitchens of psychological dependents furthermore stoked by media fed on sinophobic prejudices that are designed to realize the very thucydides trap of their own self-fulfilling concoction.
The very fact there is no objective rationale for their actions if they really want a wholly positive outcome for all is enough convincing conclusion that they only desire to win for themselves at all costs, especially onto others who have been too long without economic benefits which would come from bending spears into plowshares, no?
S: (looks into his eyes; deeply) I sense you have left something unsaid. A small misgiving, perhaps?
H: If by that you mean whether i harbor concerns for China, perhaps (coughs).
S: (eyes twinkle girlishly, beige-pink lips makes an O) Ooh...
H: There was the old refrain - a nail that stands up will get knocked down. Historically, this has been pointedly germane for all manners Chinese. One is reminded of the british 'Chinese and dogs not allowed' and the american 'Chinese Exclusion Act' and the japanese 'not even good as fertilizer'.
As as aside, shouldn't the jews be sympathetic with those who can, downtrodden by those who couldn't, as they themselves had experienced? That is, if they still have any conscience after doing to the palestinians what the nazis had done to them in the ghettos. But that's another matter. Which however has relevance in the hallways of the western corridors of power, think-tanks, lobby parlors, media-houses, even film studios.
S: So, are you suggesting China should have risen quietly and in the background instead?
H: My first thought was that. It could have reduced all the reactions and misgivings about her rise since what is not seen outwardly will be less likely to be debated, focused and publicized in ways slanted without real facts such as we have unremittingly seen so far.
S: But then..?
H: But then i asked myself how do you avoid seeing one fifth of the human race leap up in one generation? Unfortunately, what is still part of the human race was quickly categorized as just the Chinese race. There was no celebration of her achievement for being able to get up again so quickly. There was no recognition and sympathy with the fact she was down so long because of the perfidies and malignant exploitation by others of the same human race, what more the things they had done to her peoples were utterly inhuman. There was only focus on mistakes she had made whilst trying to change her society and industry with threadbare resources that were only not taken from her as well because all else have been sucked dry by the invading vampires whose agenda we can still see as the same shadows lurking around the next corners today.
S: Is it because she is the only nation today which has a unique historical basis of tianxia?
H: It could be but i hesitate to say more if only because i can already hear the saber-rattling by fear-mongers against its benign ideal.
S: So how do you see the future for China and the world?
H: (looks sadly into the teacup).....
S: (looks aggrieved)..Oh no..are you already dispirited? But why, why?
H: (grins ear to ear). Just testing you. (Smiles). I see China as primus inter pares but with Chinese characteristics (rolls out tongue).
S: So are you saying China will be numero uno but will pretend not to be number one?
H: Well, some things she cannot pretend. Like her prowess with huge constructions, logistics, e-commerce, solar applications, robotics, electric transport, retail and payments, even public infrastructure and economic, monetary, fiscal and geo-strategic development policy formulations. Among other great things yet to be revealed, these she can lead the rest of the world.
S: (bites lips as if exasperated) Hmmm, such a long phrase..
H: (grins to show sparkling teeth). Anything else? (blinks innocently)
S: What do you think of Mishao?
H: Is that a trick question? I cannot think of anyone else when you are in front of me. But you already know that, don't you?
S: (eyes roll and roll as if in disbelief). You men are so incorrigible.
H: Oh, how deflating. And i had thought you would not think of me by now only as one of the men. But as Da man.
S: (blushes). That's for me to know, for you to find out. Quick, tell me what you think of Mishao.
H: (raises eyes to look at eyebrows, shakes head). I give up. Is Mishao a man or a woman?
S: Why?! is the gender important?
H: Since i value my life, presently in your hands, discretion is certainly the better part of valor.
S: (twists mouth, looks suspiciously from corner of eyes). Quick, say...
H: Ok, diplomatically i would say Mishao is almost as intelligent as abcfirst who is of course a quantum leap above that, erh, that, erh, sicko...
S: Ok then i shall next ask abcfirst for a date.
H: Grief, what i have done to myself?!
Of being Number Two.
