A Geopolitical Look At The China Conflict

Following up my comment on China, here's a video explaining the CCP's awareness of its chief weakness in geopolitical terms: energy.

This does go a long way to explaining CCP policy and action over the last 12 years, especially since Xi Jinping solidified his grip on power.

It also confirms what Lei's Real Talk and ADV China (now "The China Show") point out regarding the relationship between the Russian and Chinese states as being driven primarily due to geopolitics and political economy rather than anything about ideology, especially as both parties are already quietly fighting over the former Soviet states between the two as well as other states traditionally in one or another's sphere of influence in that buffer region.

Contrary to what the CCP would want you to believe, they are not on the friendliest of terms with its neighbors, and this video explains why; they can, will, and have engaged in the same fuckery of economies and politics that the West has to install friendly regimes in targetted countries (e.g. the Phillipines) and not just using Belt & Road debt-trap scams.

That said, what this video gets wrong is the constraints on the CCP.

The CCP gives no fucks about anything that gets in the way of its excersize of power. What it cannot ignore, it bulldozes as hard and fast as it can; this is how its genocide of Xinjiang goes, and if not for the rampant and endemic corruption--prompted and protected by its Face culture--the Uighers would already be extinct. If it somehow runs into energy or power problems, it has no problems fucking over everything that does not serve its immediate interests because it freely crushes dissent. So long as the PLA and the security services remain loyal to the CCP, the CCP will remain in power no matter what consequences fall upon the country because the CCP will use the military and police to slough off all consequences from itself and on to others.

Don't think so? You already forgot 1989.

This means that there's a very short limit to what soft power can do, all of which is already exhausted. Therefore there is only hard options left. Let me point out the obvious: sever the damned landline connections.

The CCP will cease its maritime faggotry if it has no backups to maritime transit of fuel. For those opposed to Russia's current actions in Ukraine, severing this connection also means damaging Russia's ability to ignore sanctions and taking out its primary backchannel to Western markets.

Note also that if I can see this--a non-professional cripple in a wheelchair--then we can presume that competent professionals are several steps ahead. Remember that this video paints the CCP's position to be like that of Imperial Japan prior to World War 2; even Coach Red Pill (Gonzolo Lira) figured this out, and he's no professional either.

It's an entertaining thread, but his conclusion--that D.C. will just sit there and take it--is wrong. This would result in Beijing being glassed. Gonzolo accurately states that the U.S. lacks the immediate capacity to replace the losses, but fails to account for the fact that the U.S. still maintains a massive nuclear weapons stockpile as well as fails to see that a loss of that much seapower in rapid succession leaves D.C. with no other choice but to nuke Beijing (and likely several other Chinese cities) because the failure to do so would be even worse for D.C. specifically and the West generally.

Guess who else sees this as I do? Beijing.

That's why they're not going to take the bait that is Pelosi doing her Far Eastern tour (which is likely to include a Taiwan stop, even though it's not on the schedule).

Gonzolo, along with many others like Vox Day, buy the CCP bullshit about the capability of the Chinese state. None of them watch the China watcher channels run by expats who had years on the ground (The China Show) or by dissidents who defected (Lei) or by people with connections on the ground (most of the rest like China Insights or NTD, an Epoch News front).

Will there be war with China? Yes. Will it be a shitshow? Yes. Will this break the back of the West? NO.

The CCP has committed all of the same errors that Western institutions have, but they did in years what took the West generations to fuckup, so they are far more fragile than they want you to believe--even with their readiness and willingness to repress and control populations--and thus will be the first to collapse when the war hits- especially if the competent few in the West do their jobs and prepare the battlefield beforehand by ensuring that the CCP has no viable options other than to surrender.

As for who to root for? Neither.

The best course of action, if you must be actively involved, is to do all that you can to exhaust all sides. Make the war sufficently costly that all beliigerants negotiate just to prevent total global collapse. This is Thrall-on-Thrall action, folks; the anti-Empire strategy is to bleed them all out. Once exhausted, they will be as fragile as eggshells, and then it's as nothing to make Empire fall.

Narrative Warfare: The Roundtable That Ruins Narratives

Gonzolo Lira hasn't let his encounter with Ukraine's state security sour his mood. Recently he started hosting roundtable livestreams on his current YouTube channel. The fourth went down earlier today, and he's had the hosts of The Duran (Alexander Mercouris and Alex Christoforou), Pepe Escobar, Andrei Martyanov, iEarlGrey, Armchair Warlord, and others that gainsay--correctly--the Globohomo narrative on Ukraine and Russia.

That's a lot of good discussion on Ukraine, Russia, and the shifting sands of the geopolitical world order. The only dissent I offer is that China will not be able to replace the West as Metropole, and will struggle to maintain itself as a regional power, due to internal economic collapse and the political infighting that is part-and-parcel of it within the Chinese Communist Party. (This is documented by ADV China, Lei's Real Talk, and similar China watcher channels extensively and thus indepenently confirmed repeatedly.)

If you're pressed for time, play these at 2x Speed; you'll not lose anything for doing so, especially if you're listening and not reading the Chat Replay. Lira's doing good work here, and his next roundtable promises to be as good as these four, so I'm looking forward to it and so should you.

This is all it takes to circumvent Globohomo censorship these days. A stable Internet connection, some form of VOIP software--Discord, Zoom, etc.--and a platform to livestream from will be enough. No need for expensive studios, production teams, or any of that mainstream media infrastructure. Take advantage of this now, while you can, and as you are able; this is subsidiarity in action, and things like this will--bit by bit--is how Empire falls.

Narrative Warfare: When The Enemy Confirms That You Identified Them

This is confirmation that they are indeed in the practice of grooming vulnerable people, children in particular, to be sacrificed to predators.

This is Confirmation By Official Denial, where we can see that Empire's Thralls use Inversion to confirm what is true in a manner that normal people who are not initiated into their esoteric ways will miss, and yet because those Normies do not rebut or object that is taken as tactic acceptance that their version of reality is true and thus binding.

All this is to remind you that the janitors of Reddit are the runts, the snotlings, the goblins, of the Death Cult rat horde. They are pathetic and weak on their own, and only become dangerous when yoked to a superior will and acting as a mob.

They are child predators. This move confirms it. They have told you what works. Exploit this. Empire falls.

Narrative Warfare: When The Enemy Confirms That They Are On A Black Crusade

This past week, The Lotus Eaters cut a video about the recent Warhammer 40,000 release: The Horus Heresy. In the rulebook, it is laid out in no uncertain terms that the Adeptus Astartes--the Space Marines--must be male because the biological augmentation technology requires male-exclusive hormones and the male-specific biology that stems from those hormones in order to work. Therefore, there are no female Marines and there cannot ever be any.

This went over as expected from the grunt-level Thralls of Empire infesting Western media and popular culture, including hobby culture. Arch, formerly Arch Warhammer, had a good video about this and I'll put it here before going on to the Lotus Eaters video.

Arch approaches the real issue driving this freakout, but the Lotus Eaters actually capture it directly: it's religious.

The psychology driving the Death Cult and thus what they chose to attack, how they attack it, and what they do when they succeed are entirely the psychology of a fanatical religion bent on annilation of all opposition.

  • Identify the enemy's icons and idols, as they are the focus of worship.
  • Attack those targets without mercy until success or death is achieved.
  • Defile their sanctums, deface their icons, destroy their idols and thus discredit their religion and destroy their worship.
  • Humiliate all that remain until they either convert or die; chase any who escape until they are run down and destroyed.

Readers will want to refernce my post from 2017 about The Last Jedi as an example of the latter two points in action. This, I put to you, is what explains all of this SJW Death Cult insanity across the West.

I know for many of you this is not only not a new idea, but you've already accepted the premise. I am merely pointing out that we're finally getting confirmation from Cultists' own Revealed Preferences and "mask off" moments that this is indeed the truth.

For those of you still unsure, I ask you to look at the behavior of everything they say and do--including differences between what is said and what is done--and watch for this pattern to emerge. The denigation of the enemy religion's heroes, the inversion of the enemy religion's ethos and dogma, the revision of the enemy's mythology to portay them as weak and inferior to the Death Cult's triumphant and inevitable victory (as shown by their self-insert characters), and more are all readily apparent in what the Death Cult steals or conquers.

This is not a problem that can be resolved with Realpolitick. There is no negotiation, no rational actors, no good faith compromises; the enemy's words and deeds make it clear that this is neither desired nor practical. There is no political solution because this a problem that comes from above the political plane, even above the cultural plane; it is a problem of religion and therefore it must be addressed as a conflict--a civilizational and existential conflict--between mutually incompatible and therefore hostile faiths.

Which brings it back to 40K.

The reason for why 40K is resisting as well as it is stems from the fact that calling them heretics, Chaos Cultists, and traitors are actually effective Rhetorical attacks. All of those 40K memes praising the God-Emperor and insulting the enemies of the Imperium are tapping into that spiritual energy, albeit incidentially so, and just like painting Donald Trump as the God-Emperor freaked the Cult out so does comparing the Cult to their fictional counterparts in Chaos, the Genestealers, and (as they see themselves) the Tau.

So don't let up- and by all means direct those Rhetorical attacks at Games Workshop themselves when they start talking that heresy. Gatekeeping is good, and memeing them into screeching fits or worse is a lot of fun, but this points to something much, much bigger.

Hit them on Religious Grounds ACROSS THE BOARD!

They fear God more than anything or anyone else. Those, and that, which stands fast in Him draw their ire but also gain His strength. Just look at what Roe being overturned did as proof of that. Therefore I leave you with another enduring 40K meme.

Empire falls.

Narrative Warfare: Globohomo's Learning The Limits Of Narrative Warfare

Alexander Mercouris of The Duran dropped a big video on the big Russian win in Ukraine.

In typical fashion, the Thralls of Empire in Globohomo media have confirmed that this is true by either avoiding talking about it or talking around it, in the magical thinking that denying attention to a thing means that it ceases to exist.

This works about as well as denying that you've been stabbed works to undo getting stabbed or denying gravity to prevent falling to your death. Reality is objective. The reality of the situation is that Ukraine--the state--is done; they cannot win, so there is no rational motive to continue fighting. Therefore only irrational ones remain, and we shall see these be openly expressed within the Ukraine--yes, I meant what I wrote--controlled by that Thrall-held failed state as well as by their fellow travelers elsewhere in Globohomo.

It's not a surprising result for those of us watching daily video updates courtesy of reliable outlets like Military Summary on YouTube. You can see each incremental advance, where the pattern of Russian land warfare is repeated like a fractal pattern: identify enemy position, suppress it with massed artillery fire, manuever infantry to encircle that position to form a cauldron, clear enemy combatants out while providing for civilian security via transit corridors (this need not be a massacre; the objective is to destroy the enemy military, and if they just throw down their arms and quit fighting that counts), secure the gains. Lather, rinse, repeat.

It is surprising if all you hear is what Globohomo media puts forth. Now you're hearing that, out of nowhere, the Russians that Ukraine has been beating for months somehow pulled out an undeniable win that inflicted a mortal wound to the Kiev regime. The sanctions are not working; Russia has successfully Judo-flipped all of them to its benefit and the detriment of Globohomo, a benefit that now includes mainland China and the rest of the BRICS states- and this too is a surprise to you if Globohomo media is all you see.

The Supreme Dark Lord, Vox Day, has noted that this will result in other Official Narratives being undone as a direct consequence of this failure- each of which resulting in yet another serious wound to Globohomo.

The consequence--and confirmation--is the increasing pressure to shift to all Globohomo media to the same level of centrally-controlled and directed censorship that we see with the CCP in mainland China. By now we've already seen one trial balloon in the United States launched, and once openly proposed you know that it's going to keep being pushed until it succeeds or those trying are put down like rabid dogs.

This is a clear sign of weakness, and along with other red flags it shows that civil war across the West is coming sooner than later. Alas, it is necessary; peaceful solutions are no longer on the table due to Globohomo Death Cult insanity. To quote the Shiba Inu of Color:

"Reform is only possible on the other side of a tidal wave of blood. So I'm just waiting for that. It's why I don't really have much to say any more. It's like, we know what the problems are, we have a pretty good idea how to make things better, we know who is stopping that from happening because they benefit from the status quo. Until there's a serious possibility of killing the people getting in the way, nothing's getting better. Trump was yet another reminder that reform is a complete non starter. The regime still has its shit together too much for the sort of organisation needed to depose it, to be practical."

If you've seen the massive inflation, the sudden implosion of the food supply chains, the fertilizer shortages (further screwing food supplies), and more basic economic infrastructure issues then you know how close that "tidal wave of blood" is- especially if there's living memory of such things in your family.

Narrative Warfare is based on the illusions created by manipulation of language to adulterate the perceptions of the masses. It's as ephemeral as a snowflake, and melts just as easily when reality touches it. So long as reality can be kept from the illusion, it works, but reality is as cold iron to the Fae or invoking Jesus to the unclean- and reality has just smashed into this Official Narrative with the fist of an angry God.

Empire falls.
