Cadence Column: Asia, June 15, 2020


The West and China just won’t back down from each other. China will no longer try to work through former Mayor Han of Kaohsiung to reunite Taiwan against the will of 23 million people. America wants to put new missiles in China’s back yard and every ally has turned down the offer except Taiwan, who … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, May 11, 2020


China must brace itself for war. Regardless of any plot from America being true or false, how Beijing handled Wuhan—or rather mishandled—will not be overlooked by the free world. Regardless of how different governments handled the outbreak, the West will see an outbreak that wouldn’t have happened if China had followed the same forthright standards … Continue reading

China has a moral crisis but the solution is already there


Two interesting articles on China’ economic development, one on Sept 26 and another on Aug 24, deserve a good read as they coincidentally draw our attention to the Marxist background of the current Socialism with Chinese characteristics. Douglas Bulloch of Forbes, while commenting negatively on a Financial Times article which “was about how backward Donald … Continue reading

Chinese Kung Fu and Confucianism are not ‘Killer Apps’


A Chinese ‘tai chi’ master was defeated by a free-combat fighter in just 10 seconds in a race held in Chengdu last week.

When Emperor Wudi (157BC to 87BC) of the Han Dynasty decided to adopt Confucianism as the dominant ideology, China imposed strict Confucianist ideological control until the 1911 democratic revolution. The only difference now is that the Chinese Communist … Continue reading

The middle class is dissatisfied with a number of limitations. If it reaches critical mass discontent, perhaps we will see political reform in China, says Prof. Yuan-Kang Wang in an interview with Alexandra Kaniewska. Alexander Kaniewska: Both the Europeans and the Americans have been fascinated for several years with China, looking at it both with … Continue reading

The mystery of the core of the CCP Dynasty


The CCP Dynasty is already unique but the power of a fully retired core is even more unique. How can a man without any powerful post have dominant power in such a vast country as China? It certainly seems a mystery. After two thousand years of absolute monarchy, everybody envied or even coveted the power … Continue reading

China’s debasement of moral values and ethical principles


I refer to the Daily Telegraph UK 2011 article Material girls that appeared on the Malaysian paper, The Star, August 26th. I was completely shocked and appalled by the said piece. Though, said article was disgusting and truly sad, nonetheless it was sad but true! The writing of Malcolm Moore was peppered by incontrovertible facts … Continue reading
