I receive e-mails from my Chinese readers approving my view that the love for freedom among the Chinese is not weaker than that among the Americans, and a replica of the Statue of Liberty in Tiananmen Square in 1989, erected during the uprising, is a great symbol.
I am a reader of the Epoch Times, a dissident Chinese newspaper (in English), having the world’s largest circulation among newspapers, and I feel no political chasm between my mind and the minds of its writers and editors.
But recently I have received an e-mail from a Chinese man who explained to me that what I write is useless nonsense, since the “average age at death” in China is 70 years and in the United States it is only 60, which confirms that the Chinese are a pure race winning in the global struggle for survival, while the Americans are an ethnic mishmash, doomed to extinction.
I recalled an article from the Wall Street Journal that appeared in Yahoo! on July 19, 2008, subtitled, “Beijing today is more fascist than communist.”
The dictatorship in Stalin’s Russia up to the early 1930s was ideologically communist, its slogan being, “The proletarians of all countries, unite!”
But in the late 1930s, after Hitler came to power in 1933, Stalin (a Georgian who spoke Russian poorly and with a heavy accent) discovered that while all nations are equal, the Russians are superior to all of them.
After World War II, Stalin’s “Russian nationalism” included anti-Semitism, and by the time of his death in 1953, Jews were being fired because they were Jews and were to be sent away to an “uninhabited locality” or even drowned while crossing a river on the way there.
How was this national socialism or fascism combined with Marxism?
Well, Marx was a Jew (which terrified some Russians, as the assertion that Christ was a Jew, since he was born by a Jewish woman, terrifies some Christians in many countries). But in any case, a Jew could not be a proletarian because he always managed to make money in some dishonest way instead of honest labor by the sweat of his brow.
So the combination of communism and fascism or national socialism was perfectly possible in Russia, and it is worth recalling it to understand their combination in China. “Soviet Russia” was an earlier “Communist China,” and by analyzing “Soviet Russia” we can foresee much in “Communist China.”
In Nazi Germany and fascist Italy, the superior race consisted of Germans and Italians respectively. Surely the greatest works of music were created by Germans, the greatest paintings by Italians, and the greatest advances in philosophy and science by both.
Hence the Germans and Italians considered themselves “biologically different” from all other nations — they were supermen.
Before 1933, the Russian culture in Soviet Russia consisted of “Soviet modernists” versus survivals of genius of the old Russian culture.
The Soviet modernist poet Vladimir Mayakovsky wrote,
I want the poet’s pen to be equated with the bayonet.
I want Stalin to report to the Politburo.
On the poetry of a Soviet Byron
Along with a record output of steel and pig iron.
Stalin called Mayakovsky (before 1933!) “the best, the most gifted poet of our Soviet epoch.”
One of the poets of genius of the old Russian culture was Osip Mandelshtam (incidentally, a Jew!). Possibly he was the world’s greatest poet of the first third of the 20th century.
Unfortunately for him, he wrote a poem about Stalin as a monster, which was not printed, of course, but was distributed as a handwritten leaflet. This is how the poem began:
We are living without feeling the country under our feet,
What we are saying is only our scared hearts’ beat,
And those who will think they can hear at least a blip
Will recall the Caucasian monster’s deadly grip.
The secret police tracked down Mandelshtam as the author, and he was exiled to a city named Voronezh for three years. Only in 1938 was he sent to a concentration camp, where he soon died of hunger.
Why this amazing lenience? Instead of torturing him to death after he was arrested, he was allowed for three years to live, accompanied by his wife, and write poetry, in Voronezh!
After 1933, Stalin played Russian nationalism. The Russian autocracy of the 19th century treated Russian poets of genius with royal magnificence. So he emulated.
The “Soviet propaganda modernism” was of no interest in the West. On the other hand, the good old Russian culture of genius was in great demand. So, after 1933, it was expedient not to bury it and forget it, but to propound it in the world as the creations of Russians, superior to all other nations.
Similarly, the treasures of the 5,000 years of the Imperial China can be exploited by the dictators of China to prove that the Chinese of today are supermen, and all the other nations should be annihilated to give the Lebensraum to the Chinese.
Such articles do not appear in the media inside China.
The dictatorship of China values the financial and scientific-technological contributions to its military might from the inferior races. But such articles are printed by Chinese living outside China.
One such author contended that the Chinese living in the United States should also be annihilated, since their life outside China had destroyed their inborn superiority and made them as inferior as any other inhabitants of the United States.
“China is quickly becoming a leading force in nanotechnology,” we read in PRLEAP.com (Nanowerk News), printed in “Yahoo!” on Dec. 27, 2008. The founder of nanotechnology, Eric Drexler, considered nanoweapons in 1986, and considers them now, incomparably superior to nuclear weapons.
Well, it is quite proper for such a military achievement of the dictators of China to go hand in hand with the overall superiority of the superior race, inheriting the globe.
