Chinese President Xi Jinping’s Speech Encourages More Globalization in Davos’s WEF 2017

In a time when there are forces within various countries calling for more protectionism, China’s president Xi Jinping addresses the World Economic Forum in Davos for the very first time to encourage for even more globalization.  Mr. Xi Jinping describes protectionism is like locking oneself in a dark room where wind and rain may be kept out, but light and air are also going to be kept out.  Since China has had success with opening up to the world since China joined WTO (World Trade Organization), and so China sees that opening up is a good thing.  Of course, Mr. Xi Jinping also recognizes globalization is also a double edge sword, because in an optimistic world globalization can boost trade and profits, but in a pessimistic world globalization can cut off trades and market accesses.  Anyhow, Mr. Xi Jinping is the first Chinese president to address WEF in Davos, and his detailed speech is in the video right after the break.  Enjoy!

China and Russia In Massive Military Drill In South China Sea In 360 Degree Panorama Video

In this early years of the 21st century, we know that superpower countries won’t go to war against each other, because they all got nuclear weapons.  Of course, I hope I’m right about this, because it could be a disaster for humankind if superpowers do go all out against one another.  Anyway, the United States is facing a real challenge as Russia and China team up ever closer to carve out more influence in the world.  The United States of course wants to stay number one and dictate the direction of the world’s trajectory, but Russia and China are not playing the United States’ game.  Just recently, Russia and China carried out huge military exercise in South China Sea.  The video right after the break demonstrates how China and Russia team up in military trainings and efforts.  The video is in a 360 degree panorama format, and so you can use your mouse to press and hold on the onscreen arrows in the video to watch the video in 360 degree, both horizontally and vertically.

Europe’s Migrant Crisis

The pouring of refugees from war torn countries into the West is creating a lot of angry groups and protests in the West.  Some countries in the West are beginning to refuse more refugees.  Some countries in the West have been refused any refugee from the beginning.  Yet the wars in the Middle East and elsewhere are still raging on.  If more wars are going to break out, we should see even more refugees seek migration toward the West.  How will the West handle even more refugees when the current refugee acceptance level is already intolerable?

By the way, I believe in the etiquette of common sense such as a guest should never rudely wreck a host’s home.  Thus I don’t think it’s right for refugees to refuse to assimilate into a host country, after all such a country is providing aid to the refugees.  Common sense also tells me that a host country should either accept the refugees with care or not accept any refugee, because doing anything else would just be egregiously inhuman.  Of course, the refugees should follow all laws and rules of a host country, because refugees should not have any crazy advantage and illegal leeway over regular citizens of the host country.  I think the host country should declare clear rules and regulations in accepting refugees and then enforce such means in decisive, humane and lawful manners.  By doing the right things right, we can bring peace toward all sides.  Sometimes though, it’s better to not do anything at all so an uglier mess won’t be forming.

Meanwhile, extremists who are using religions to brainwash people are only fueling more hatreds around the world.  In my opinion, if a religion which promotes killing and forcefully coerce people into a belief is not a real religion, more like a devil worship cult.  The things a legitimate religion should cherish most are love, compassion, peace, and relative moral values that fit with time.  Also, a religion should have no business in politics and government.

With science, a religion should be open minded about the advances of humankind.  When a religion makes science as an enemy, it’s when a religion is really sliding backward into time.  Such a religion isn’t belonging to the future of humankind, because progress of humankind should be the ultimate priority.  Only progress could we eventually save ourselves from true extinction.  We don’t want to become just like the dinosaurs who went extinct forever, because their fossils are the strongest warnings to us all.  Of course, nothing can outlast time, and so we can’t delude ourselves in believing that humankind will be forever lasted, but at least progress can stretch out the timeline of true extinction.  Without progress and in a nuclear age, I think we are setting ourselves up for hell on earth.  Thus, we don’t need more problems such as violent religions that coerce people into a belief.  What we need is more humankind progress in general — such as science and humankind civilities.

In my opinion, when a religion starts to coerce somebody into a belief, it’s when such a religion should be demoted to a dangerous cult.  We humans are not robots, because we have a brain to think.  We should be able to question a belief without being killed or persecuted in any harmful way.  As long we don’t go around and coerce people into our own belief, we should be able to question any belief in peaceful manner.  A civilization cannot be called a civilization when people are harming each other for one’s own belief.

I can only see more dead people walking when fake religions promote love through killing and hatreds.  Religion goes wrong can only fuel even more wars in this “already madly in love with wars” world.  Without further ado, check out the videos right after the break to see how the West has been coping with inundation of refugees.

Besides South China Sea, United States Is Now Facing A China Which Just Joined Up With Bashar al-Assad’s Regime In Syria

An ocean away, the Atlantic that is, and so I kind of being ignorant to what is really going on in the Middle East.  Still, I’m surprised to see China is now sending military advisers to Syria so China can aid Bashar al-Assad in fighting against the rebels and other extremists.  Meanwhile, Russia is bombing the extremists (i.e., ISIS/ISIL) in Syria from Iran’s military airbase.  Putting these facts together, it’s now clear that China is joining in to help Russia, Iran, and Syria in fighting against the rebels and extremists that are trying to collapse Bashar al-Assad’s government.  Lately though, it seems that the ISIS/ISIL forces are being scattered and being stamped out of Syria, because Russia is still stepping up to drive these forces out of Syria.

Since China’s economy keeps on growing, it needs energy supplies such as oil from the Middle East to secure Chinese future, and so China is going against one of the creeds that China has always held dear most — which is not to interfere with internal matters of another country or region.  Furthermore, China is looking to realize the grand plan of connecting Europe and  everything in between to China through the One Belt One Road (or Silk Road) initiative/project.  With such a grand plan, China needs the Middle East to calm down much more to ensure the safety of the people, companies, and whatever that are involving in developing and realizing the grand Silk Road project.

Since China is now slowly forming a coalition with Russia and Iran, I wonder how Europe is going to react to this.  China is key in Russia’s plan, because China is a very big business partner of most countries in Europe.  The United States may have her plate full from now on, because Europe could decide to be less helpful to the United States since China is now joining in the Middle East’s mess.  If things keep on getting escalating, I think Europe would have less appetite in seeing business with China goes sour, because we’re talking about peace and prosperity in long term here.  Still, Europe could also decide to help the United States fight against China/Russia/Iran coalition, because Europe has a special relationship with the United States.

Whatever the case, it’s bad for the United States, because the United States is still supporting the rebels — who are trying to collapse the government of Bashar al-Assad’s regime.  Check out the video right after the break to see the news on China joined up with Bashar al-Assad’s regime to fight off ISIS/ISIL and the rebels.
