An army of nearly 200,000 Chinese laborers had been sent to Europe during the war.

--Harold R. Isaacs, The Tragedy of the Chinese Revolution

I am reading a copy online; had a xeroxed copy a couple decades ago but it's long gone. Went to Facebook to see if any of my commie friends could provide me with the fifth sentence, etc.

Paizonians trolled me.

Here is Comrade Samnell's offering:

"We were about fifty miles out from Shanghai when Mao dropped some bad acid and started ranting about how people could make steel in their back yards."

And another, from Kruelaid, I believe his Paizonian handle is:

"His followers prostrated themselves, gibbering among themselves and nodding."

They each received an invitation to the Fun-Timey Reeducation Through Labor Supercenter.

As the All-Purpose Asian Stalinist Avatar of Comrade Anklebiter, I'm going to have to say that I exult in the growth of the People's Republic of China and can only hope with bated breath that Donald Trump further hastens the fall of Yankee imperialism.


I disagree.


Ah, good times.

I hear Trump wants to collect Cambodia's "debts" from when you Yankees installed Lon Nol.


What I saw on the news today suggested that the next likely president of South Korea will be Moon Jae-in, the chief of staff under the previous president at the end of the Sunshine Policy years.

That being said, I'm only posting because the removal of the South Korean president reminds me that it's been a while since I made a witch post.

Choi Soon-sil - Shaman or con artist?


I haven't read this article yet, but the most intriguing story I heard on the news today was about the assassination of Kim Jong-Un's estranged elder half-brother.

From what little I heard, his estranged elder half-brother was estranged ever since he defected to the Wes--well, East, I guess--after getting caught trying to visit Tokyo Disneyland with forged papers.

Life...


Reposted from the Paizo International Film Festival Thread:

Foreign Fantasy Film Department

Mojin: The Lost Legend

The latter had flashback scenes to when two of the tomb raiders were Red Guards in the Cultural Revolution. Flashback scenes include a bunch of ardent Maoists waving their Little Red Books at ghosts and chanting "We are materialists and materialists are fearless" before they get ripped to shreds. Also, the way to propose marriage in this movie is to ask "Would you like to sublimate our innocent comradeship in revolution?"


They were such a cute couple.


Further googling indicates that you're right

Beats me.


Tell us how you really feel about the RNC and Trump, China

Cursory googling indicates you're wrong about Red China


Thanks!


In fact, public awareness of Tibet in general rises and falls with the periodic anti-China demonization campaigns conducted by the U.S. State Department and its agents.

One, two, many defeats for U.S. imperialism!

I recently saw Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons which was the best film about attaining enlightenment that I have seen in a while.


Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons

This was really, really good. I had never heard of it, but all D&D fans should watch this if they haven't already.

Even had a useful lesson for all the shy boys and girls on how women can make the first advances.


Down with the NatBos and the Red-Browns!

Defend and extend the gains of '49! Oust the Princelings! Expropriate the Hong Kong bourgeoisie!

Workers of South Korea, rescue your brothers and sisters from Juche barbarism! Overthrow the chaebols! For revolutionary reunification!

For a giant post-revolutionary orgy where we can let it all hang out! Socialism will get everybody laid!

Vive le Bachuan!

Thank you Citizens Oak and Orf, I was wondering where I was going to put this:

China: The Great Slowdown

"Signs the mammoth property bubble is finally bursting belie Beijing’s upbeat GDP data"

Apparently, the era of ghost cities is coming to a close. What international capitalism is going to do next, I have no idea. Also, apparently, China made more cement in 2011-12 than the United States made in the whole 20th century. Also, also, apparently, in the six years since the 2008 crash they have built 200 million housing units which, apparently, is 1.5 the total existing housing stock in the United States.

Interesting shiznit.

When Hobby Lobby filed the case, its retirement plan had more than $73 million
invested in funds with stakes in contraception makers. [ url= 401k freak-out ]

So, now they are prolly working on taking back everyone's 401K retirement benefits.

"These companies include Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, which makes
Plan B and ParaGard, a copper IUD, and Actavis, which makes a generic
version of Plan B and distributes Ella. Other stock holdings in the
mutual funds selected by Hobby Lobby include Pfizer, the maker of
Cytotec and Prostin E2, which are used to induce abortions; Bayer,
which manufactures the hormonal IUDs Skyla and Mirena; AstraZeneca,
which has an Indian subsidiary that manufactures Prostodin, Cerviprime,
and Partocin, three drugs commonly used in abortions; and Forest
Laboratories, which makes Cervidil, a drug used to induce abortions.
Several funds in the Hobby Lobby retirement plan also invested in Aetna
and Humana, two health insurance companies that cover surgical
abortions, abortion drugs, and emergency contraception in many of the
health care policies they sell."

Christians Call Out Hobby Lobby For Hypocrisy

"'You cannot call your business "Christian" when arguing before the Supreme Court, and then set aside Christian values when you're placing a bulk order for cheap wind chimes,' wrote Christian author and columnist Jonathan Merritt in a recent article for The Week."


No worries. I was in upstate New York last summer. I am sorry, too...

I read somewhere that there are an estimated 500 strikes, riots and/or protests every day in China. The article didn't say, though, who was doing the estimating.

RT Host Abby Martin Condemns Russian Incursion Into Crimea – On RT

My journalistic flame since Alyona left makes me proud.

Took me about 40s to find this. ;)

Comrade Anklebiter sent me in here with this note that reads:

Glenn Greenwald wrote:

UPDATE II: In response to my question about whether any U.S. television hosts issued denunciations of the attack on Iraq similar to what Martin just did on RT, Washington lawyer Bradley Moss replied: “Phil Donahue (MSNBC) and Peter Arnett (NBC).”

The note then goes on to be somewhat indecipherable, something like Razzlefrazzlearglebargle?

He also sends this interesting article from Haaretz:


From Washington to Moscow, everyone is lying about what’s happening in Ukraine


Who are you talking to?

I've got a research assignment for you. The subject is "Tuaregs". I'll check back in in a couple of days after I've read the new issues of Granma Internacional and Izvestiya.


Comrade Anklebiter asked me to tell you that, on the off-chance his posts contributed to your head explosion, to see below. If not, he says, nevermind.

As a revolutonary socialist, it is a no-brainer to oppose Russia's invasion of the Ukraine. My Russian comrades, I hope, are carrying out this line as we speak, but, alas I don't speak Russian.

It goes without saying that the peoples of Ukraine have a right of self-determination, of full autonomy and independence. But what we are seeing today has nothing to do with the democratic will of the masses. It is a brazen and cynical act of Russian imperialism, aimed at annexing foreign territory and converting Ukraine into part of Russia's protectorate.

Today, the struggle for freedom in Russia is a struggle against the foreign policy adventurism of the current regime, which seeks collusion in forestalling its own end. The RSD calls on all sincere left and democratic forces to organize anti-war protests. Our demands:

NO RUSSIAN-UKRAINIAN WAR! NO PROVOCATIONS TO BLOODSHED IN UKRAINE!

NO PITTING AGAINST ONE ANOTHER OF THE PEOPLES OF UKRAINE AND RUSSIA!

NO INTERVENTION BY THE ARMIES OF RUSSIA OR ANY OTHER COUNTRIES IN THE AFFAIRS OF CRIMEA!

FREEDOM FROM DICTATORIAL ACTS AND PEACEABLE SELF-DETERMINATION FOR THE PENINSULA'S RESIDENTS!

YES TO THE UKRAINIAN WORKERS' STRUGGLE AGAINST OLIGARCHS AND CORRUPT OFFICIALS! NO TO ETHNIC CONFLICTS!

but he starts the piece "I welcome Russian intervention in Crimea." Which I don't (and find a troubling lack of anti-Sexy Putin sentiment in all of them as a matter of fact) but still found pretty interesting.

My Russian comrades, one of whom is quite hawt, getting arrested for protesting Sexy Putin.

Don't get me wrong, Sexy Putin out!!, but I don't see how the US is gonna win an image war.

So I saw the headline when the newsstory first was going 'round in the bourgeois press, but even they were skeptical saying it came from an anti-NK faction of the CCP paper, but, uh, did Kim III really have his uncle torn apart by ravenous dogs?
