From Zhang Yimou's "To Live" to his "The First Emperor", from Chen Kaige's "The Big Military Parade" to his "Farewell My Concubine", the Chinese collectivist eunuch artists and intellectuals are using their despotic instincts and products to espouse the typical Chinese pathology and paranoia that is in essence an evil, corrupt, despicable virgin-whore complex. The cowardice, constant complaint about life and a deafening silent desperation over existence are powerfully fueling the Chinese illusion and delusion to recover their old imperial glory. After the WWII and the crushing defeat of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and Militaristic Japan, the Chinese are stepping into the same old mode of revenge against the West and revival of their old glory of imperial despotism. Tragedy and self-destruction will ensue as history repeats itself for those who have never learned. --- Kai Chen
As we deplore the Chinese eunuch artists and intellectuals for their soulless pursuit of glory for the state and the collective, we have to recognize the fact that such a phenomenon of desperation over life fueling illusions over recovering past glory is not uncommon among old civilizations in the world. We have to recognize the fact that today most Chinese are essentially corrupt and degenerate in their mindless pursuit of illusory glory for their despotic party-state.
I have just met too many Chinese who constantly complain about life in China under the communist rule, while secretively wishing the communist success in recovering the Chinese ancient glory of imperial domination over weaker neighbors, not to reveal to you such a common Chinese mindset.
Such a pathological complex has a lot to do with the Chinese syllabic language and its dominant popular culture under Confucianism. Departure from reality, cultural atavism, degeneration into the past are all symptoms from the evil roots of Confucianism assisted by the pictorial, syllabic Chinese character-based language. Without knowing this essential fact, any attempt to address the issue of Chinese recurring despotic dynasties will be like applying castration to cure infertility, or using poison against poison. The end result will always be tragic and disastrous.
This detachment of the Chinese from reality, truth and universal morality has been continuing. The language they use, the terms they formulate, the remedies they propose, the methods they apply all reflect the deep-root corruption and perversion in the Chinese soul.
I hope you will take a moment to examine your own daily behavior, making sure you are not just doing the same.
