From China With Love

But surely the U.S. businessmen do not want to be annihilated and they will be worse off in a Chinese colony? This enigma is solved if you live in the United States and know many Americans as they really are, and not as some of them want to see themselves as they shout on television with feeling how great America is and how ready they are to do or die for its sake. Tacitly, many Westerners are not concerned about the survival of the West, and care only for their own private lives.

On the day after the election of Nov. 2, we learned that 40 percent of those entitled to vote had not voted. And in the election of 1996, the figure was about 50 percent! Of course it can be said that some of those who did not vote had read John Stuart Mill’s criticism of majoritarian elections and decided not to vote. But I can assure you that only several university professors in the United States have read that criticism, because John Stuart is their salaried job.

Many of those 40 percent or 50 percent simply do not care about who is the U.S. president or what China is doing to be able to annihilate the West without Western retaliation. This is all “politics,” and how on earth can “politics” concern them? The word “politician” is not a good word in the United States. That’s it: “Politics” is for “politicians,” while good folks have their own good concerns, such as money.

John Doe says in the first line of his e-mail about my Internet column: “I want to tell you that you have been doing a great job recently.”

Amazing! An American businessman in China reading my column instead of reading only stock exchange quotes and other important texts. John Doe goes on:

Such individual exceptions do, fortunately, occur. In my article of 1978 I argued that the CIA did not actually exist because intelligence/espionage vis-a-vis dictatorships requires genius, not just U.S. university degrees and previous high posts. A senior CIA analyst, who was an exception (a man of genius), became a lifelong friend of mine and told me that the CIA predicament was even worse than I had described it, but he was alone in a huge pro-Soviet bureaucracy and hence powerless and afraid that he would be deprived of his pension if he said publicly that I was right.

In the second line of his e-mail, John Doe asks: “How can we get you more visibility?” I answered him:

“I (and you and others like us!) are that boy in Hans Christian Andersen’s tale who shouted that the Emperor has no clothes. The “politically correct” adults conformed to the general willful blindness. The moral is that no matter how persuasive our message is, this willful blindness will remain. I have my 700-page book online. My previous book (about my life in Russia) was published by Harper & Row and received over 100 reviews, which compared me to (among others) Mark Twain, Orwell, Voltaire, and Dostoyevsky. Saul Bellow (a Nobel Prize novelist) has defined my present book as the only book that can save ‘the sightless and hence doomed West.’ But literary agents and publishers will not touch it with a barge pole.

“What is necessary? A top-notch publicist, able to organize publicity in mainstream TV and the mainstream press as per my future contract with him. But he costs $10,000 for four months, and I do not have the money.

“I co-founded in 1986 a nonprofit Center for the Survival of Western Democracies, Inc. I could receive tax-deductible grants and donations. But grant-seeking and donations-hunting is a full-time job, and I am busy, writing my weekly column and editing my 700-page book in case a literary agent or a publisher turns up.”

But to return to John Doe’s e-mail. He continues:

Some Americans have been obsessed with the world-imperial dream. Far more Chinese are obsessed with the same dream in reverse. Instead of “the rotten bourgeois democracy” being established in Iraq, they dream of establishment of beautiful Chinese Communism all over the world, as predicted by Marx, Lenin and Mao, whose 110th birthday was celebrated last year.

John Doe writes:

Chinese youth in the power areas of China (on the coast) have been emboldened with this nasty sense of nationalism and feeling of entitlement that the CCP has successfully implanted over the years. This has been magnified and emboldened by their new economic success.

The dictatorship and many, or most, Chinese are united in their dream of Chinese global superiority.

But what about John Doe’s business? Does he sell high technology that may be useful for post-nuclear armament? No! To his financial detriment, but “out of principle” and for sake of “the future of the West,” he is engaged in “very low-tech businesses” of no conceivable strategic use, and he says to me in conclusion, “Keep up the good work.”
