My New Year Message and Wishes


A professor of geography in Kyoto explained to me in poetic terms his emotions as a child growing up in Japan at the end of the war.  He described a day when an American soldier had appeared at his village in search of antiques.  He had looked up at the tall stranger and was filled with a strong awareness that he, the little Japanese boy was ill-nourished, puny and ill-clothed, while the big American soldier was well-dressed and obviously well-fed.  He recognized the world of difference between the strong and the weak.  But the professor told me, all through his childhood, as he and his family struggled for daily survival, he would always look up toward the heavens and know that behind the clouds was the sun.

When he was a grown man and Japan had become an economically powerful country, he went on a field trip to an Indian village.  And one day, as he stood speaking to some Indian villagers he suddenly became aware that he was well-fed and well-clothed while the villagers were malnourished and poorly clothed.  He and his countrymen were now cast in the strong.  But as he said to me with a smile, our young people these days, although they are rich and have never known what it is like not to have enough to eat, do not look up toward the heavens, nor do they care whether there are clouds or whether there are sun behind them.

I vacationed in China last Summer, and the country is great and the people extremely kind and hospitable.  I'd love to live there for a couple years and absorb the culture.  It's a growing country and on the right path for the future.

China seems to be the only major country in the world that realizes that she is not finished, and is the only one using constant development and refinement and improvement in working towards the goal of eventual completion, regardless of how many years that may take.

All other major nations seem to have this attitude that they are now perfect and complete and that trying to force "their" ways on other nations is their right since they believe they are perfect.

Only China seems to understand that cooperation means to work together while other major nations want to control and demand and view cooperation as being possible only under the condition of absolute obedience.

Only China seems to understand that friendship means accepting the differences without demanding that the differences disappear to be replaced with slavish adherence to foreign orders and decrees and beliefs.

Only China seems to accept that problems are meant to be worked at until they are solved at the time and in such a way that matches real conditions and not forced by false and arbitrary foreign pressure.

Only China changes, it seems, while all other major nations wallow in their failures; trying to make those failures into successes without changing the things that caused those failures.

Only China accepts, it appears, the adage that "The only constant is change" - while other major nations are afraid to change for the better and seem willing to wallow in their own backward failures, clinging slavishly to the past with a fervor unmatched by even religious fanatics.

My wish for China in 2008 is that China and Chinese people continue to ignore the pompous clowns from foreign countries that demand that China change this or that according to the dictates of a foreign country.

My second wish for China and Chinese people is that China in 2008 - and beyond - continues to work toward perfection; constantly knowing that the seeking of perfection is the road and not the goal - the goal being completion at some point in the distant future of something that exists nowhere in the world today but which China has the best chance of developing...a true society.

My third wish for China and Chinese people is that they never turn their back on their belief in their own ability to bring about the completion through their own efforts, without ever having to bend their knee as so many foreign powers demand they bend in obeisance to foreign dictates.
