Thank you Rory and Dave, for a great show. China is just too important, actually always has been, to be ignored on the world’s 21st century stage. I am not saying that the Chinese government is angelic. All governments are inherently power hungry and evil. But after 4,000 years of continuous history, to understand China, you must be able to accept alternative definitions of democracy, rule of law, society and culture. All Xi Jinping and every Chinese leader since 1949 have said and are saying is, “We choose to develop our society, economy and culture based on Chinese terms, not on Western notions. And we resent you trying to shove your versions down our throats”. I invite Rory’s and Dave’s fans to learn more about China, in audio and writing, at http://www.44days.net. Looking forward to the next show with Rory and Dave soon! Jeff in Beijing.
Here is our Shadow of Truth interview/podcast with Jeff Brown:
This is a must-listen interview. It is the pilot interview for a series of interviews the Shadow of Truth will be doing with Jeff. We consider Jeff to be “our eyes and ears on the ground in Beijing.” These are reports from China that are unfiltered by western media.
Reader response: Very insightful stuff and quite heartening in his conviction that the leadership of China is not in on some frightening back scenes new world order deal with our oligarchs. I agree with you, Dave, that it never made sense in simple psychological terms.
Here are the people who *forced* opium on your people to get silver, who fought two wars with you over this, who dumped India’s silver on the market in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s and destroyed your economy and who have shown zero human connection to their own western countrymen. You should go in with *these* people in any kind of deal?! – “Fred H”
