The capitalist world
is in decay. The West is rotting. Anger and nihilism
are pouring from the imperialist empire whose
citizens are frustrated; not at peace with
America and Europe are furious at the countries like
Venezuela and Cuba because their thinkers and
leaders are exposing the terrible deterioration of
values which is streaming from the neo-colonialist
and historically imperialist countries.
But it is China and
Russia who are at the forefront of spite of the
Western nation and their propagandists. It is all
grotesque, now. Russia which saved the world from
Nazism, and which helped to decolonize dozens of
nations, is now “least liked country” in Europe.
Germany, which murdered millions of Jews, Roma,
Slavs, and others, is the most liked. In the West,
nobody seems to care that Germany is still
plundering such nations like Venezuela while using
its industrial and banking might to strip
defenseless nations of their riches.
China, a mighty
Communist country, (or call it a “socialist country
with Chinese characteristics”), is being mocked and
humiliated by Western propaganda. Arrogance of the
European and North American indoctrinators and most
of their servile pseudo-intellectuals, from the
so-called center to the right, has no boundaries.
Most of them are suffering from incurable
superiority complexes. They feel that they have the
right to judge China; to decide for it, whether it
is “truly” Communist or not, and whether it is on
the correct track.
China is a calm, some
could even say timid nation. No matter how mighty it
has become, it tries to resolve all conflicts with
its self-proclaimed adversaries, harmoniously. It
does not attack, and it does not provoke.
Historically, it cares for the well-being of its
peripheries, and even for the welfare of faraway
nations. For millennia, the wisdom went like this:
“if the neighbors are doing well, so will do well
Chinese leaders and
Chinese people are convinced that if the entire
world would become prosperous, China would benefit
as a result. That is the essence of the BRI (Belt
and Road Initiative), which is often defined as the
“New Silk Road”.
Of course, it is not
as simple as this, but in essence, it is. New Silk
Road is the flagship of the Chinese
internationalism. I saw China “in action”, in such
places as Africa and Oceania, and I have been
greatly impressed. I am an anti-imperialist, and an
internationalist, therefore I decisively support
consider myself a Communist and an internationalist,
not a “Marxist”. Karl Marx was a historical,
European figure, a good analyst and critic of the
old, early capitalist regime. He was preoccupied
with mainly European system, without using much
energy to attack colonialism and imperialism. In the
last hundreds of years, the most horrid problem has
been the Western plunder of the planet by the West.
Marx did not pay much attention to it.
Countries like the
Soviet Union and People’s Republic of China, which
have been defending those who are defenseless, are
consistently and very professionally demonized by
London, Paris, Berlin, and Washington, insanely
smeared as “equal to the fascists”, while it is
clear that the only honest equation could be made
between the Nazism/fascism and the European and
North American colonialism, or more precisely,
neo-colonialist and imperialism.
perfecting its own socialist system,
China learned a lot about the mistakes
made by the Soviet Union. It is not
going to repeat them. Those of us who
are close to the Academy of Social
Sciences, or to the Chinese leading
universities and media outlets, are
doing our best to explain the errors
committed in both Soviet Union and the
so-called Eastern Block. Based on the
analyses of its own past, and of other
socialist countries, China is both
fighting for the survival of the world,
and for the improvement of the standards
of living of its own people.
I like her approach;
I am proud to be part of the “process”. And I
support China with my entire heart because I know
that if China falls, if it gets destroyed by the
imperialist West, it would be the end of all hopes
for our humanity. The West already demonstrated what
it would do to the planet, if it would be allowed to
continue ruling, unopposed, over the billions of
lives of human beings.
United, allied, China
and Russia are creating a powerful block of
independent nations. Directly and indirectly, they
are defending those good countries which are
antagonized, brutalized, even terrorized by the
West. Both nations are benefiting from working
together. Now, dozens of countries on all continents
are benefiting, too.
I like what I see.
Hope is in the air. It is beautiful. It is full of
optimism. And that is why I support; that is why I
am celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the People’s
Republic of China!
It goes without
saying that China is being intimidated and provoked
by almost all Western countries, as well as their
China is turning into the most lucrative career for
both the mediocre journalist working for the mass
media outlets and for the funding-starved
individuals all over the world.
Reasons for these
attacks are only too easy to identify: The People’s
Republic of China is clearly winning in all fields
and areas, over both the imperialism and savage
capitalism: ideologically, intellectually and
With only a fraction
of the GDP per capita (compared to the West), China
is eliminating extreme poverty. Its infrastructure
is now better than that in the West. Its progress in
the field of ecology cannot be matched by any other
part of the world. Its creativity, in the area of
culture and science, is colossal. The life of the
Chinese people is improving, dramatically. And, it
is very hard not to notice, the lives of the people
in the countries that are working with China, are
getting much better, as well.
More obvious all this
is becoming to the people worldwide, more horrified
are getting the traditionally colonialist and
imperialist countries. They cannot offer anything to
the world, as their economies and cultures have been
based on looting, already for many long centuries.
They are unable to stop, to reform, to work for
saving the world. And so, all they can do in order
to ensure that the status quo prevails is to smear
China and Russia; two determined sisters that are
working relentlessly for a much better planet.
For decades, China
tried to compromise, to appease the West. It has
been doing everything possible and impossible to
avoid direct or indirect conflict. Only recently, it
realized that the only outcome the West would accept
would be if China would kneel, surrender, and give
up its “Socialism with the Chinese characteristics”
And this is
unacceptable to both the government in Beijing and
to the people of China.
That is why the
parade on Tiananmen Square, on the October 1st,
2019. That is why the clear message to the West:
Chinese system is not for sale. China is not going
to bend. That is why the new weapons, designed to
repel anyone who would dare to attack the PRC, have
In Russia, they say:
Those who come with the sword, from the sword will
understood the wisdom of this truism.
Of course, China
welcomes friends with open arms. It is helping those
in need. It is trying to build a better world.
But it will never
again tolerate attacks, intimidations, and bare
racism. In the past, it got occupied, brutalized and
humiliated. Now, after 70 years of tremendous leap
forward, under the leadership of the Communist
Party, China is confident, strong and proud.
I love this
confidence. I admire what China is doing both at
home and abroad.
That is why I am
celebrating with the Chinese people the 70th
Anniversary of their socialist motherland. That is
why I am working, day and night, to show to the
world all those great achievements of the most
populous nation on earth.
I also believe that
the union of China and Russia represents the last
hope for our humanity. I witnessed the suffering of
people on all continents; victims of Western
imperialism. I do not buy, even for a second, the
propaganda that “all nations are the same and would
they be strong enough, they would plunder the world
with the same brutality as Europe and North America
have been doing for all those centuries”.
I am not too
interested in reading and listening to the endless
analyses of the Westerners regarding China. I am
interested in what the Chinese people have to say
about their country!
Now, 70 years after
the Victory, the Chinese nation stands as united as
ever. And the nations that have been robbed of
everything, by the West, are now daring to hope, for
the first time in many generations.
That is why, I am
saluting the nation which is changing the world, and
which, at 70, looks and feels so young, kind and
full of optimism!
