Confucius

大道之行也,天下为公,选贤与能,讲信修睦。故人不独亲其亲,不独子其子,使老有所终,壮有所用,幼有所长,矜、寡、孤、独、废疾者皆有所养,男有分,女有归。货恶其弃于地也,不必藏于己;力恶其不出于身也,不必为己。是故谋闭而不兴,盗窃乱贼而不作,故外户而不闭,是谓大同。

To translate in English:

“ The Great Way is— the world belongs to all; choose the virtuous and capable; build trust and goodwill; care for not only your own folks, love your own children, but also in society— the old has care, the strong are useful, the young can grow, the widowed, the sick and disabled are cared for; male has work, female has home; products are not thrown away, not necessarily owned by self; efforts are not wasted, not necessarily for self; work together for prosperity; thieves are not stealing, no need to shut the door.—this is WORLD UNITY!”

This ideal world view is still a universal value today was written by the Sage Li Ji. It was written 3000 years ago before Confucius time ( 551 BC—479 BC). Confucius (and Mao) drew wisdom from it.

Global Governance

Lula    Just a few years ago, Brazil had a burgeoning economy and was a valued member of the BRICS grouping, but on the wrong side of Wall Street. It paid dearly for its temerity. Here is how a colour revolution is conducted. Frantic  and vain attempts to inflict the same fate on both Russia and China are in full swing. 5 minute read.

Human Rights & Justice

Whack-a-Uighur  New Zealand’s government joins the West’s chorus of human rights accusations against China. No thought of setting right the problems of poverty, inequality and housing (of which we have accurate knowledge) in our own glass-house, before we throw stones at China’s domestic problems. These generalised allegations are based not on observed fact, but on hearsay emerging from US and UK propaganda agencies. Caution to the wind and ignorance no obstacle! 2 minute read.

Navalny  Poor persecuted Navalny! The most detailed report yet on the faked basis of the West’s imposition of its latest round of sanctions on Russia. 15 minute read.
