China Got Taunted & Millennials As Bombs

This week I don't have a single topic, but rather two to hit upon. I shall do each briefly.


I follow The China Show (and its hosts separate channels), China Update, and Lei's Real Talk for most China Watch needs. Respectively, these are channels by people who've been on the ground for 10+ years, somehow still on the ground, or a native that defected and so they know the reality of the CCP and Mainland China that CCP propagandists constantly deny.

(Yes, including you Vox Day.)

Lei in particular has done fantastic work this past week analyzing what Xi did last weekend how it shook out over this past week. I recommend hitting up her channel, but what I want to point your attention to is the series of reports on the United States changing its regulations on American citizens and Green Card holders working for Chinese (Mainland) chip companies. Specifically, they banned it; keep your job or your citizenship/residency- and everyone chose the latter.

That decapitated Chinese chip capabilities overnight. Chips are a high-status, high-value economic pursuit; the US just forced a significant loss of Face upon the CCP and thus upon Xi Jingping. It's not the chips that matter here; it's the loss of Face. That, moreso than anything else, is what is going to push China to invade Taiwan even if it turns out to be a pointless endeavor because that cannot go unanswered- not after Pelosi's trip earlier this year forced a similar loss of Face.

"Whadda gonna do about it, Winnie?"

Is it Globohomo goading? Probably. It's also a reasonable bet.

"But hypersonics!"

My brother in Christ, Mainlanders can't even make gear for the PLA with consistently competent quality; their battle rifles keyhole constantly, their fleet is more for show than ready to go, and those missiles are made with the same shoddy work that makes Taurus engineers freak out over how bad quality control is.

In short, coupled with the relentless bullshitting out of the CCP, we can't take that those missiles even exist- nevermind that they work, or are in vast numbers. We can say that what they have, they likely got from the Russians because Moscow does have them and we know because Moscow USED them.

I don't buy that a US-China War is an auto-win for China. I also don't think that the US military getting its clock cleaned early on is undesired by Globohomo; throw just enough meat into the grinder to get a massive propaganda win out of it, then use that pretext to funnel unlimited funds to the Military Industrial Complex to speed-run new production of new gear while using Emergency Powers to scoop up enough personnel to man them. We're about 80 years past WW2, so it's about time for another world-reordering global war; count on something like this to happen within the next few years now that Russia's Ukraine War is going to prove to be contained.

Generational Theory

Taken from a Discord server I am in.

Boomers & Millennials.

Some say that Boomers made Millennials in their image in order to be their Designated Heirs. I have come to think this is half-correct.

The reason it is correct is because all of the Boomer psychology traits are present. The missing part is to what end because the Boomer Furnace exists.

Consider this: Millennials are not the Boomers' Heirs. They are the Deadman Switch.

Take someone with the exact same psychological profile but deny them the ability to satisfy the narcistic urge that defines the Boomers and what do you get? Millennials. As there are no Boomers left to rage at for getting screwed, they take it out on everyone else instead.

All that the Boomers cannot shove into the Furnace will be theirs to finish off in a generation-long orgy of narcistic rage.

("Boomer Furnace": The practice of shaping all laws, rules, regulation, etc. around the wants and needs of Baby Boomers without care for the consequences because they must be satisfied OR ELSE due to the outsized power and influence they wield and fuck everyone and everything else both before and after them.)


As Boomers run Globohomo, Boomers are deciding to throw it all in the Furance while simultaenously promising Millennials that they get to take over. Due to how Millennials were brought up as meme-clones of the Boomers, they bought this bullshit as a cohort; the tell is how they treat Gen X, Gen Y, and Gen Z (like shit).

You can only run a con for so long. Sooner or later the conman has to pull his vanishing act if he wants to avoid the consequences for his scamming, and for Boomers that means making certain that there's nothing left after they're gone- it all goes to feed their entitlements.

By 2030 this will be brick-to-face obvious to Millennials, but by then it will be too late and Millennials as a cohort will fulfill their function as bombs tied to Deadman Switches by their Boomer progenitors.

You think it's bad now? It's nothing compared to what happens when a generation in their prime gets mad as a hive mind at being played- a generation that now holds power (because the Boomers handed it to them).

Wars within and without are going to go down. The Boomers will start them, but the Millennials will ensure that they get played out.

Yes, including the civil wars.

As Beige Shiba put it:


Because the Millennials are unable to be humble about themselves. The Boomers made them in their image, so the Millennials cannot admit that they were wrong. Gamma Male/Entitled Karen Rage as a cohort is a disaster for one and all.

They will blame EVERYONE ELSE, and because they will be in power they will make this EVERYONE ELSE'S problem.

Brightburn wasn't a creepy anti-Superman film; it was a fucking warning.

All Hail Emperor Winnie (Ignore The Burning Hundred-Acre Wood, Pleb)

To no one's surprise, Xi Jinping emerged from the annual National Congress at the head of the Party for a third term.

Everyone knows now that Xi's aim to become a second Mao, and thus be a true Neo-Emperor of China, is all but achieved at this time. While this may be alarming to some, it is going to be necessary for Xi to deal with the imminent threats to the Han nation, to the Chinese state, and to the Party- and this is clear to anyone with so much as a cursory comprehension of the Chinese--Han--tradition of statecraft.

Xi Jinping seizes nigh-total power at a time when the Chinese state faces several natural crisis born of Party--and therefore state--incompetence.

  • China's freshwater supply is in a state of near-collapse as well as unfixably polluted due to industrial policies long in place. This in turn made China dependent upon fertilizer for its meager and small amount of arable land, which meant dependence upon Ukraine and Russia for potash and fertilizer. Whoops.
  • China imports most of its food from abroad, as its incompetence routinely ruins its own capacity to generate its own food supplies as well as wasting what it stores for emergency use due to such incompetence and corruption. (See its pig culls due to preventable disease and grain wastage due to poor storage policies and capacity.)
  • China cannot keep the lights on due to so much need for hydroelectric power, power decimated by the very same droughts wrecking its farmlands and making them vulnerable to the flooding that washes what good soil China has away. This in turn means more coal-fired plants coming online, but not fast enough or run well enough to fill the gap as well as promoting dependency on foreign coal such as from Australia.
  • China prioritizes high-status industries such as Electric Vehicles over guaranteeing its populations basic needs; Tesla gets power before homes in the cities. This has not gone unnoticed.
  • The real estate corruption via a nationwide Ponzi scheme--Evergrade and company--has tipped into collapse and now various tiers of government are intervening directly to keep the plates from crashing. Meanwhile, people aren't being housed in apartments that they paid for because work isn't being done.
  • The factional infighting has taking priority over political economic policy, such that nonsensical moves like Zero COVID continues despite it driving foreign talent and capital out of the country in a frightening exodus- making a shaking economy into a fragile one. (This policy, by the way, is directed at Xi's CCP enemies in Shanghai and the provinces as a way of flexing on them and centralizing power in Beijing.)
  • Earlier this year, Chinese nationals are banned from leaving the country unless the Party (via the state) explicitly permits it; no discretionary travel allowed. Passports are cut up by agents at the airports, and they are also cutting up foreign-issued residency cards (which is a problem because those are property of the issuing foreign state, not the holder- a diplomatic incident waiting to happen). This has not been lifted.
  • The anti-Taiwan Rhetoric has escalated while Russia's war with Ukraine has kept a lot of Western eyes fixed elsewhere. Leaders have moved to negate any possible advantage for such a move, such as control over Taiwan's chip manufacturing (which is superior to the Mainland by a country mile), and the PLA as well as the PLA Navy remains a less than credible opponent for a Western counter-attack (because if you believe that the CCP has working hypersonic missiles, let alone in the numbers needed, I have a bridge to sell you). They may do it, despite the price, if it relieves internal pressures on Xi regardless of the outcomes.
  • The demographic crisis is going to force the CCP to even more draconian measures to reverse that trend and quickly, none of which will sit well with outsiders or look good in foreign media, but Xi doesn't care about them. All he cares about is internal politics and his hold on power. All else can be, and will be, thrown into the furnace to power that ambition. This is the reality of Chinese statecraft.

We are not looking at a strong, confident China that will surpass the West. We are looking at a weak, fragile China that's one wrong step from falling into its own footprint at a speed that makes 9/11 look slow. If it were not for the weak, stupid, and feckless Thralls of Empire in Western governments that freefall would be happening right now followed by that favorite of Western Molech cultists, "the humanitarian intervention" that involves occupying key locations and making certain that what is needed to keep the looting (and the grift) going gets put into place to do just that.

What we shall see over the next five years is if Xi Jinping is ready to be more than a new Mao, but a new Qin Shi Huang Di. That is what it will take to survive what is to come, hold on to power, keep the Chinese state able to function, safeguard the Party through this mess, and when it's over the butcher's bill make Le Holocaust look like a schoolyard brawl (as is often the case in China).

But that's the best case scenario, and that best case still leaves the world with an exhausted China that is unable to exert power abroad and likely suffering the full effects of that very demographic collapse. China's neo-Imperial ambitions are DONE.

That just leaves Globohomo and Russia. Empire doesn't care which party wins, so long as it has a viable host to dwell within. Ensuring that all possible hosts collapse is how Mankind gains the opportunity to end Empire forever, and if it does Empire falls.

Narrative Warfare: Wielding The Power Of Cool

We have ourselves a Big Think to talk about, thanks to a post on Twitter this past week.

Go ahead, tell this guy that he's wrong.

He just gave you the cheat code for how Empire used its Thralls over succcessive generations to get, keep, and expand control over the nations that these Thralls dominate.

This is why the Culture War matters. It is wielding the power of social pressure via manipulation of what is High Status and what is Low Status in a given society in order to make the Death Cult morality acceptable to a population.

Yes, this means that the Moral Majority of the 1980s and 90s were entirely correct. Not only that, but their predecessors that decried unregulated social mixing in soda parlours over a century ago--leading to the genesis of contemporary "dating" (i.e. hook-up) culture--were also entirely correct.

The enemy openly acknowledged this power almost a century ago when Edward Bernays, Father of Contemporary Weaponized Psychology (and nephew of Sigmund Freud) that is Public Relations, said this in Propaganda:

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. ...We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. ...In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons...who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.

That was 1925, and said with the benefit of his time as an official propagandist for the Federal Government of the United States during World War I (along with Walter Lippmann).

What does Vox Day consistently say? "Most people only understand Rhetoric.", which is him paraphrazing Aristole. This is validated time and again by review the histories of Greece, Rome, China, and many other past cultures from around the world.

Men follow status and sentiment, not ideas; if you ever witnessed someone successfully steal credit for an idea that someone else expressed moments before, chances are good that you saw Status and Sentiment in action. The originator was lower in status and held in no or poor esteem by the crowd; the creditor held superior status and positive sentiment, so the same idea gets accepted when it was previously ignored.

This, by the by, is why optics matter.

You want to know what #Comicsgate succeeds? It's cool and its enemies are cringe. You want to know why the #OSR succeeds? It is cool and its enemies are cringe. #PulpRev is cool and enemies are cringe.

This also explains why Empire and its Thralls are so censorious. They cannot out-cool, so they use information control to artificially create the illusion--to maniupulate populations, almost all of which are only moved by Rhetoric--of them being cool and their enemies being cringe.

This explains so much seeming insanity. (Not all of it, but a lot.) Find out what a people deems cool and cringe, and you can hack their society and seize control of it. Get into that position and you can shape over time, like a potter shaping clay on a wheel, that society into whatever you want it to be.

Make Empire cringe, and Empire falls.

You Are Already Paying The Price For Ignoring Foreign Affairs

If you cannot foresee second and third-order consequences to actions taken, you are not going to make it.

Since there are people, like the Balding God of Twitch--the slacker millionaire Asmongold--who claims that things which do not directly affect him do not matter, it is time to start making this clear to those people how such effects are screwing them harder than an IRS auditor to a political dissident.

First, for those that are all about following the money, this little report from TFI Global.

This report focuses on those second and third-order consequences. Making energy costs prohibitivesly expensive in Europe has corporations of sufficient size, none of which have any loyalty to any state or nation, casting about for cheaper alternatives to do business at least inconvenience and sure enough the United States is right there to take up that slack.

Offices close. Factories shut down. Employment craters, spending drops, causing a cascade of failure to ripple through Europe as the effects spread from major industry down to retail and local commerce. The economic collapse turns into a housing crisis as more people are thrown out of their residences or domicles, which turns into a humanitarian crisis due to increased stress on emergency services--already run down to a lack of funding and other resources--and people that can flee while those that remain get upset and start causing problems for the several European states.

The refugees flooding abroad spread the problem to other states and start imposing on the nations therein, making things worse there and threatening to spread the failure cascade wider, unless the states concerned start sinking the damned ships and instead cause international incidents that may instead take another route to international unrest if not outright war.

In such a scenario, apathetic slacker millionarires like Asmongold quickly find out that they are not as isolated as they think they are and therefore are not as insulated as they think they are either. Their lack of diligence in public affairs results in government officials deciding to weaponize those refugees against people like him in order to settle local political scores (and yes, oh Balding One, there are such officials that hate you enough to do it and you didn't have to say or do a damned thing to earn their ire; they hate you because you exist).

This sort of collapse is what went down in Weimar Germany, among other places post-World War I, and we all know what happened next.

Next, let's talk about the Retard In Charge in Ukraine and his insistence upon Poking The Bear. It is now known that Kiev takes credit for the bridge attack. Not that it did much good.

As the Didatic explains at length, this is meant to pressure Putin to over-react; the Russian population is furious and easily provoked right now, and Putin is the moderate in this situation keeping things calm and measured instead of going right into overdrive and allowing emotion to overrun reason- and thus be easily lead into traps. Putin's hold on power is iron-clad and his institutional support is solid, so this has not worked nor will it work in the near future.

War is a political act, but it is also an economic operation- and between the two, economics always wins. You can't fight with what you don't have.

The resorting to terrorism by Ukraine, including direct murder squads against civilians, is not the sign of a strong and victorious power. The well-known strategy of reducing Ukraine's military to dust by attriting it has had its desired effect; the tells are the ever-widening consription calls, including conscripting young women and old men, and if the Kiev regime is not overthrown the Ukrainian nation will cease to exist.

That madness, faciliated by Globohomo because Zelensky is a Thrall of Empire and thus takes orders from senior Thralls based out of the DC-London-Brussel axis, is summarized as "Fighting to the last Ukrainan".

Money, supplies, and weapons are sent to Ukraine; most of that goes right back out due to corruption and only a fraction actually gets used. Stockpiles are drawn down and need to be replaced, meaning more work for arms suppliers (in the US in particular) with political connections- especially as European options are forced out of business or out of Europe.

People flee the region, with the effects I point out above.

We all know about the lack of fertilizer and potash, which will screw over already bad wheat supplies further while other crop yields get kicked down the well and leading to a famine cascade over the next year- and that means more refugees flooding into an over-burdened West (because the East will sink the damned ships) and increase the stress therein, likely pushing it over to collapse and the cascade continues.

By this time next year, the Balding One will be complaining about everything being so expensive and inconvenient and he'll be wondering why when he isn't banning people in his chat telling him that it's directly due to foreign affairs that he steadfastly ignored because he didn't think it affected him when it already has here and now.

Even if you have no power to force officials to stop screwing over the nations they claim to serve, you still have the power to protect yourself by not being where the blow(s) impact because that is what the Thralls in the West seek to do with this course of action: slough off the consequences from themselves so that their internal enemies suffer all of the consequences while they get none at all.

This is now the revealed preference for how the Thralls in the West operate: they exploit the consequences of foreign affairs to rewards friends and punish enemies, and if you read this you're one of their enemies.

Those that pay attention to foreign affairs see these coming and are in position to avoid getting hit by them. If you can, you owe it to you and yourse to do the same, and thus those consequences will come back to the Thralls that provoked them because those effects have go somewhere. Remove yourself as a target, and they become it by default- and thus they own themselves, and in time Empire falls.

This Is Why You Cannot Ignore Foreign Affairs

What did I say last week? You do not have the luxury of ignoring foreign affairs. This past week we saw why.

If you missed Friday's speech, here's Earl Grey's reaction to it.

While NATO refused Ukraine's accelerated accession request, that doesn't mean this train's hitting the brakes.

Now that Russia has formally annexed those four regions, the Russian Federation is free within its own legal framework to treat Ukraine's aggression against them as direct attacks on Russian sovereignty. However, we now see that the Thralls of Empire serving Globohomo are indeed--to use an old street saying--high on their own supply. The sabotage of Nordstream 2 is clearly a Globohomo operation because no one else benefits from its destruction- especially when the Norway-Poland pipeline came online that same day.

Germany, already waivering, is now locked in and locked down within Globohomo's control and there's nothing that can be done about it short of mass violence by and against the German state by and against the German polity. This will be repeated across the European Union, with a few exceptions on the Eastern side where certain EU members wisely remained open to Russia all this time and thus will be in a position to avoid the worst of the oncoming collapse.

While Globohomo media--including their Anglophone social media influencer agents--has made a big deal about public reaction to Russia's partial mobilization, the reality on the ground is that this is overwhelming favored by the Russian nation and--again--Globohomo is gaslighting the Western nations about what is really going on. If not for men on the ground like Earl Grey or some others in Moscow, St. Petersberg, etc. we would have no eyes and ears to call upon- just two sets of State Propaganda and a lot of bullshit to sift through like 19th gold panners in California.

What does this mean? Nuclear war is on the table.Total war is on the table. Globohomo is already positioning to open up more fronts, and those fronts include against China (Russia's biggest geopolitical ally). World War 3 is already here.

What does this mean to you? All of the Wu Flu government overreach is going to continue with new trappings and new justifications as things get worse. Supply chains of all sorts of goods, not just luxury goods but core capital goods like the chips needed to run every last fucking things anymore and the fertilizer to keep up crop yields (as well as the food so produced) will be choked or cut off. Financial markets will An Hero en masse, making today's inflation problems look weak. All of this will cause civil unrest across the board, meaning that Nomads will soon find that (a) that friendly foreign country suddenly is not and (b) a lot of get-along shitlibs will find out how real race and nation really is in a heartbeat when they find out that their skin is their uniform as angry mobs come for them.

If you cannot foresee second and third-order consequences to actions taken, you are not going to make it.

If there were anyone but committed Death Cultists in the hall of power in the West, there would be people in those halls openly talking about suing for peace right now. There are not. Not in Washington D.C., not in London, not in Brussels, not in Kiev. (There are in Moscow, but go figure that no Death Cultist is listening.) They have no regard for the lives of the Western nations in whose name they act. They hate the Russian state and its nation.

Not even the recent Italian elections will be sufficient to put a stop to this drive for immolation of the West by its own purported leaders, and I doubt that the upcoming American elections--or any other elections--will have any such effect either. Real power in Western countries is rooted in the unelected institutions, public and private, and those across the board are firmly in the hands of the Cult- and they are already cognizant of, and attacking, attempts to erect parallels that they don't control while choking off ways out of their dominion.

Empire always sees war as a reset button, and it slams that button when it senses that control is slipping from its grasp. War is on the table. It is a risk; it is time to do what can be done to make that a risk too high to do anything but produce a Pyrrhic victory and thus ensure that Empire falls.
