It’s rare I link to videos from others, but this particular short video is fantastic.
In it, PJW breaks down the difference between the Chinese “ban the simps” strategy from the American “ban people saying the word simp” strategy.
Watch it on BitChute here:
It’s also on YouTube, should you prefer that platform:
The Chinese have been encouraging and importing degeneracy into our nations for decades now. While at the same time, trying desperately to stomp it out from their own.
The Chinese strategy has always been to mimic that of successful, older empire-states. The same attributes, virtues, and environment that brought about the Roman Empire, the Ottoman Empire, the Holy Roman empire, the Byzantines, the Mongolian Empire, the British Empire, and the original American Empire are at play within China. They are encouraging family, masculinity, strong men, common-bond patriotism, unity, strength, stoicism, moral courage, and fidelity to the state. All things that all great empires, during their up-and-coming era, shared.
It is sad, but it is likely that they will be our replacements for world power once we crash. Unless we can stop that sinking ship, I see no way we avoid what has happened literally dozens of times over in history. The are trying to become the next empire.
China has accomplished this largely through cultural controls. They realized the failure of central planning, Maoism, and “The Great Leap Forward” and took a different, more historic approach.
Freedom, especially in the hands of centralizers such as in the West, will never hold forever. The decentralized aspect will naturally lead the power-hungry to centralize it in their interests. Which will eventually result in cultural degeneracy. It is all a part of the cycle of collapse. Allowing centralizers to have the unlimited freedom to centralize the culture will never result in anything else than exactly what has happened here.
That isn’t to say I am in favor of a tyrannical rule by one. But if a rule by many is going to sustain, the cultural controls have to be in the hands of the many, not the isolated class few (capitalist elites) nor completely decentralized. If they aren’t centralized by the many, then a rule by many cannot maintain forever. The many must be able to pick, change, and revert their culture. We must have the option to control it. It is the expression of us, after all. It should never be in the hands of a one (such as China) or a few (such as the U.S.). I have ways to do so in my upcoming book, but I’ll defer that one for another post another time.
Still, this video is a great lesson in the importance of cultural controls. If a nation doesn’t have them, then the nation won’t exist for long. At its very root, the culture is the expression of the nation (the people) and their soul. If you don’t protect and safeguard that most very foundational being of a society, then there is no reason to expect or desire it to survive. It will eventually become what we have today, which is an absolute perversion of what we once were. A desecration of our ancestors.
In many ways, if you minus the totalitarian approach, the Chinese strategy and values are a better representation of our ancestors than our own people’s culture is today.
A crazy thought. But it is a crazy world.
