A Free Being First, A Chinese Last

"Free Beings" vs. "Chinese" Series

陈凯一语: Kai Chen's Words:

你并不首先是个中国人。 你首先是个人。 更重要的是你首先是一个自由人。 你并不是任何族群的财产与产物。 你是一个独特的上苍的造物。

You are never first a Chinese. You are first a human being. More importantly, you are first a Free Being with Dignity. You are never a product or a property of any racial or ethnic group. You are always a unique existence by God.


By Kai Chen 陈凯 (Written 5/31/2008, Reprint 8/9/2011)

My daughters Alex and Dom have just graduated from college and high school. Alex from Yale and Dom from Marlborough School in LA.

I am immensely proud of what they have accomplished with their lives. Alex will go into Peace Corps and she wants to go to Africa to serve for two years. My wife and I will visit her in Africa at some point. Dom will go to Brandeis University in Boston which was first established by Albert Einstein.

As I pondered upon what my daughters will face and venture in life, I realize how important it is for a parent to recognize the unique value each child has as an individual. The meaning of their existence is never up to the parent or any other person. It is up to themselves and God. We, as human beings, are never products or properties of any outside entity, be they family, nation, race, ethnic group, etc. We, as unique individuals each with a unique meaning by God, can only set out on our journey to find that unique meaning ourselves, and to fulfill it.

In Marlborough School graduation commencement, former U.S. Secretary of State, General Colin Powell made a great speech about how he has found the meaning of his life and fulfilled that meaning with diligence and tenacity. In Yale, former Prime Minister of England, Tony Blair, made a speech to encourage the students to strive for excellence. "Life is not just to live. Life is to strive." He said.

As I contrast what I have experienced in America and what I have experienced in China -- a narrow-minded culture, encaged by a nameless paranoia and collective hatred, I want to shout out loud to the Chinese people: Wake up from your thousands of years of stupor! Open your eyes in your soul and return from despotism and self-deception to humanity and freedom! Recognize your uniqueness as an individual in God's eye and realize that unique meaning endowed upon you only by God.

Come out of your dirty morass, shake off all the filth from your body and mind, dumped there by your ancestors, embark on a journey of self-discovery toward the ocean of freedom!

One More Free/Happy Soul in the World - Your Power as an Individual

"Free Beings" vs. "Chinese" Series

陈凯一语: Kai Chen's Words:

“道德相对”与“文化等同”造成了中国人畸形的奴性的幸福观: 他从不问他自身是否自由与幸福。 他只问他自己的牢笼是否比别人的牢笼更舒适;他只问他是否比其他奴隶从奴隶主那里多得到了一条毯子。 他人的状况是中国人鉴别自身状况的标准: 他人的奴役是自身的自由。 他人的痛苦是自身的幸福。


"Moral Relativism" and "Cultural Equivalentism" have created a sick and warped view in some people's, especially the Chinese mindset about freedom and happiness: He never asks whether he himself is free and happy; he is only worried about whether his cage is more comfortable than his neighbor's cage, or whether he has obtained one more blanket from his master than his neighbors. Others' state of living is the standard by which the Chinese judge their own state of living: Others' slavery is their freedom. Others' misery is their happiness.

Only by making oneself happy and free, the world will have a possibility to become happy and joyful.

Lenin once said that only by liberating all the people (mankind) in the world, oneself can be finally liberated. According to this view, no one in the world will ever be happy and free, because there is always someone in the world that is unhappy and enslaved. This is "Moral Relativism" carried to the extreme. Of course, only an atheist can have such a point of view, for he is never sure about anything beside yearning for power over others. He will never love anyone, for he has no basis for judging what is love. He will never be happy, for he has no foundation to assess what happiness is. He will never be free, for he has no criterion what freedom really is...

A person with no faith will never be certain about freedom, happiness and anything else for that matter. Fear, confusion and uncertainty will always accompany him. Abusing and being abused/using and being used is his daily experience.

Due to the potent cultural narcotics under which the Chinese have subjected themselves for thousands of years, many have effectively castrated themselves off the capacity to be ever happy and free. Modern communism has further purified the narcotics and rendered the Chinese complete zombies/vampires without souls preying upon one another: They think an unhappy person can make himself happy by saving others from their unhappiness; they think a self-enslaved person can help others to find freedom. Only a complete narcotic addict can have such a view. Only a complete idiot can believe in such a view.

Looking around the world and searching throughout history, is there a free country established not by free beings, but by slaves and overlords? Is there a happy country established by a bunch of self-loathing miserable eunuchs, slaves and whores (Eunuslawhores)?

When I was in China, I had made a promise to myself and my best friend who died from communist persecution that the biggest revenge I would ever exact on the evil regime was to make myself free and happy. Today I have fulfilled that promise. I am free. I am happy. And I think I have become the biggest threat to the evil, despotic Chinese Communist regime, for I will never perpetuate a vicious, despotic, slave vs. overlords, man-eating-man cycle. I have freed myself from that vicious dynastic cycle and from that man-eating cyclone. There is one less destructive element today to ruin other people's lives and to add to the world misery. I have indeed liberated myself.

Having become an element of freedom and happiness, I feel every moment that I am projecting the light of freedom and happiness around me, onto my own environment, onto others. I have become the most powerful person on earth -- I have become a free being.

Do not join in the vicious, deceptive cycle of pain, misery and mental slavery! Separate yourself from the destructive cycle and extract yourself from the perpetual man-eating-man quick sand. Then and only then the vicious cycle, the quick sand, the insidious swamp that have swallowed millions of lives will finally lose their power and disappear into the oblivion, into the past. Hereby I urge every living soul: Free yourself to become a happy and joyful being, before you can truly contribute to the cause of liberty and human freedom.

Only after you have liberated yourself, only after you have become a happy, creative and productive being, the world around you will finally progress toward a better tomorrow. Those who want to save the world but themselves are self-castrating, self-deceiving, God-pretending man-eaters. We have been through many dynasties. We have been through many forms of despotism/tyranny and we have been through Mao - the Devil himself, and the evil spell of communism. We have to ask ourselves:

What have we ever learned? Are we ever capable of learning and progressing at all?
