Is the Shanghai lockdown China’s Ukraine?

Is the Shanghai lockdown

China’s Ukraine?

Emanuel Pastreich

April 15, 2022 

Corporate newspapers and social media have been flooded with horrific images of the Shanghai lockdown for the last week, a massive enterprise that has confined millions of Chinese to their homes for weeks and has resulted in the implementation of severe restrictions on access to basic supplies.

Images of citizens yelling from their apartments in frustration, or screaming heartfelt protests in moving soliloquies, videos of drones and robots patrolling the empty streets of Shanghai, present us with a terrifying vision of the totalitarian rule by technology that so many have predicted.

The underlying message is that China is the source of this nightmare.

The official story put out by the city of Shanghai, and not denied by the Chinese Communist Party, is so extreme as to invite ridicule.

A new “zero tolerance” policy for COVID-19, which is a bogus non-existent disease in the first place, was imposed on all Shanghai citizens, first on the East side of the Huangpu River from March 28, and then for the entire city from April 1st. Supposedly all citizens will be tested for COVID-19. According to media reports, only 26,087 new cases of COVID-19 have been found, and of those, only 914 were symptomatic (and there were no pictures of bodies on the ground, as was in the case in Wuhan at the end of 2019).

That is to say that the justifications for the lockdown are so absurd as to make the entire process farcical, perhaps an action intended to show citizens that they must do exactly what they are told to do, no matter how ridiculous and groundless the premises are.

The Western corporate media had a ready answer for what was going on: The Chinese Communist Party, following its undemocratic socialist ideas, is violating the fundamental rights of citizens that we Westerners respect.

The American Jack Posobiec, who refers to himself as a “veteran Navy intel officer,” posted extensively on Twitter about the lockdown, blaming Communism and making statements like “This is what the CCP is doing to the 26 million people of Shanghai.”

Human Rights Watch was quick to condemn China for its human rights violations in Shanghai, stating on April 6 that “The Chinese government should respect the right to health and other basic rights in its response to the Covid-19 surge in the country,” but did so without any reference to similar, or worse, policies being carried out around the world.

The problem is that although this lockdown is blamed on Communism, there is no precedent for the shutdown of a major city too be found in the Chinese communist tradition; no part of the imposition of technofascism can be traced back to the calls of Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai for class struggle and for resistance to imperialism.

The model for the Shanghai lockdown, it turns out, is the lockdown of Boston after the Boston Marathon bombing of April 15, 2013, exactly nine years ago. On that occasion, the United States Federal government, specifically the FBI, used a murky charge of a terrorist attack (about which serious doubts remain) as an excuse to lock down vast sections of the city of Boston and to confine citizens to their homes while armed police patrolled the streets.

Boston Lockdown of 2013

The question we should ask is whether what is taking place in Shanghai is being organized by the same people who organized the Boston lockdown, and similar lockdowns around the world over the last two year, and not by the Chinese Communist Party—or not primarily by the Chinese Communist Party.

Horrific videos of Chinese committing suicide by jumping from their windows were also widely circulated, and they may have been real, but there is no reason to assume anything is true just because it was broadly circulated.  

Another popular video featured a dog-shaped robot (that resembles a Boston Dynamics SpotMini) patrolling the streets with a microphone on its back telling the people of Shanghai to stay inside. Anyone who looked at the video with critical eyes had to be doubtful. The speaker was carelessly strapped to the back of the robot with barricade tape in what appears to be a careless stunt, and it was most certainly not representative of government policy. 

But the giveaway that this lockdown has silent partners who had nothing to do with the CCP bureaucracy was the constant harping in the Western media on the suffering of animals in Shanghai. Images of live cats rounded up and put in bags for disposal were pasted all over the internet, along with a video of a Chinese man cruelly holding a dog in pain with a device and then dropping it into a container with other injured dogs. Although the video certainly was disturbing, I dare horrified Americans to watch a video of a factory-scale slaughterhouse in the United States for even few minutes.

The focus on cruelty to animals is a standard in the operation to demonize Russia in the Ukraine. For example, a call by “Soi Dog co-founder John Dalley” for help to rescue the dogs and cats of Ukraine has been broadly circulated in the United States.

There are numerous indications that the Shanghai lockdown is being marketed for the Western audience as the equivalent of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The narrative presented is of a cruel totalitarian Communist government in China that oppresses the poor citizens of Shanghai who yearn to be free from these unreasonable “zero covid” restrictions (but no suggestion is offered that covid restrictions themselves are wrong).

MSN reported, “There are videos of locked-up residents chanting ‘we want food’ and ‘we want freedom.’ In a video, citizens are seen going to their balconies and protesting against the lack of supplies.”

But the videos, the reports, are just too perfect, to carefully staged.

Shanghai Shutdown as war by other means

The details of the actions by American operatives (perhaps including Israel and other nations) in collaboration with corrupt Chinese officials to plan, and to carry out, this Shanghai lockdown are not available to me. Granted the completely speculative, and often blatantly wrong, reporting that passes for journalism these days, however, I hope that I can be forgiven if I infer, based on the ample evidence I have read in English and Chinese, as to what may be going on behind the scenes.   

The Shanghai lockdown must be seen first in proper geopolitical perspective.

China has been subject to high level pressure from Washington D.C. over the last two months in an effort to thwart any possible cooperation with the Russian Federation since Russian troops entered the Ukraine.

Let us consider the critical events leading up to the lockdown.    

US President Joe Biden warned the People’s Republic of China on March 18, in a conversation with President Xi Jinping, that there would serious consequences for China if it offered any support for Russia, economic, or, especially, military. White House press secretary Jen Psaki explained, “He made clear what the implications and consequences would be if China provides material support to Russia as it conducts brutal attacks against Ukrainian cities and civilians.”

We do not know what Biden said, but just three days later, on March 21, China Eastern Airlines Flight 5735 was heading for a smooth landing at the Guangzhou International Airport when it suddenly plunged inexplicably into a nosedive. The cause of the crash has yet to be explained—even three weeks later.

Many Chinese believe the arguments made in videos posted on Weibo (and elsewhere) soon after that incident that the crash was the result of a remote hijacking (similar to the 9/11 crashes) probably conducted by United States. The story was confirmed by the American intelligence investigative blog State of the Nation. Moreover, the egregious decision to include a seven-member team from the United States in the formal investigation of this domestic crash suggests something a bit unusual.

Then, on March 28, the Shanghai Municipal People’s Government, not the central government in Beijing that had been easing restrictions, suddenly launched a radical COVID-19 “zero tolerance” policy.

If intelligence operatives for the United States were looking to give China its own “Ukraine,” and to find a new field for the trouble making that they funded in Hong Kong previously, Shanghai was the logical choice.

Shanghai is riddled with global financial interests, with the head offices (or certainly the major branch) for all major multinational investment banks and multinational corporations located there. Their impact on the Chinese economy remains immense.

Shanghai has a history of over a hundred years as a center for global capital with a parasitic relationship to the rest of the nation. It was Shanghai, after all, that offered extraterritoriality to citizens from imperial powers until the 1940s.

Following that tradition, Shanghai today has the most extreme special economic zone policies of any city in China, policies that allow foreign corporations to engage in a broad range of activities without the authorization of the government.

As part of its drive to meet the demands of multinational corporations, the Shanghai government has privatized services and promoted technological solutions to just about everything. Shanghai has been so enthusiastic in adopting smart grids, 5G, online governance, and automation that it won the top rank globally as smart city from Juniper Research this year. 

Shanghai has rolled out the red carpet for global finance, giving special privileges to select institutional investors, opening up to just about any investment from offshore, expanding the derivatives markets, and permitting investment banks to create their own “wealth management joint ventures.”

Who might be involved on the Chinese side in this Shanghai shutdown?

There are plenty of billionaires active in Shanghai with close ties to global finance who might be tempted to play the role of an Igor Kolomoisky, the billionaire who created current president of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in response to American encouragement.

For example, we know that the billionaire Ma Yun (Jack Ma), who took enormous amounts of funding from Goldman Sachs and other American investment banks when he created Alibaba as a global marketing and distribution giant that rivaled Amazon, was very unhappy with Chinese policies.

Ma is popular figure among the globalists, and he is a member of the board of trustees of the World Economic Forum.

Although the details are obscure, Ma’s push for the globalist agenda in China ran afoul of state planners in Beijing, Xi Jinping included, two years ago.

Ma established the Ant Group, a financial institution intended to revolutionize finance by creating an unregulated banking system.

The story is that he delivered a speech on October 24, 2020 in which he called for sweeping changes in the banking system. As a result, the central government cracked down on his activities and he has rarely been seen in public since.    

Alibaba is headquartered in Hangzhou, near Shanghai, and has its largest presence in Shanghai.

There are also American billionaires interested in using Shanghai as a way to muscle in and open up China to foreign capital. For example, Stephen Schwarzman, CEO of the private equity firm Blackstone, has bought off many intellectuals and government officials in the Chinese Communist Party with his money, especially the more than 100 million USD he gave to establish, among other things, the prestigious “Schwarzman Scholars” Program at Tsinghua University.

Another American billionaire heavily invested in China is John Thornton, founder of the John L. Thornton China Center at Brookings Institution. Thornton is a member of the International Advisory Council of the China Investment Corporation (China’s sovereign wealth fund) and he is constantly pushing to increase foreign influence over China’s financial policy.

Shanghai Lockdown and Global Economic Disruption

The economic disruption caused by the Shanghai lockdown is already being promoted in the corporate media as the reason for delays in the production and delivery of electronics, automobiles, and other household goods that are produced in, shipped through, or dependent on parts manufactured in Shanghai. Although this disruption is true, there is every reason to believe that this situation will be exploited and exaggerated to justify efforts by the super-rich to destroy the global economy further and to impoverish the Earth’s citizens.

Combining a Ukraine crisis that justifies a sudden scarcity of agricultural goods, raw materials, natural gas, and manufactured goods with a Shanghai crisis that shuts down global trade offers globalists an opportunity to explain just about any disruption.      

Already plans are in place to adopt a similar zero tolerance policies in the city of Guangzhou, another major manufacturing and finance center. The resulting economic slowdowns, disruptions in supply chains, increasing inflation and shortages will be just what the doctor ordered.

The economic crisis of the Shanghai lockdown has also been employed as an argument for increasing vaccinations in China, predictably, and for introducing the first Chinese-made mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, according to China’s National Center for Disease Control and Prevention.   

Differences between Russia and China

There are clear differences in the nature of the attack on Russia through Ukraine and on China through Shanghai. The United States and China, although talk of war has become a constant theme over the last decade, are also highly integrated economies that involve deep cooperation even in the midst of radical political theatre. Moreover, China has refused to respond to the efforts to goad it into military action in Taiwan, Hong Kong or the South China Sea. The attack, therefore, had to be launched in a covert and obscure manner so as to make it appear as if the Chinese Communist Party that the source of the problem because it is abusing the people of Shanghai. As of this moment, there is not a trace of the American hand anywhere in the public discourse.

Russia, by contrast never had the rapprochement with the United States that China had after President Richard Nixon’s meeting with Chairman Mao Zedong in 1972, nor are the economies of the United States and Russia that integrated. There were Russians who studied in the United States, but study in America did not have the same appeal for Russians that it had for Chinese over the last thirty years.

Thus, although there is American investment in Russia, and American interference in Russia, Russia is not so deeply integrated into the American logistics and supply chain, and American investment banks have fewer ties and fewer financial interests.   

What needs to be done

The Chinese have been subject to their part of the great reset, serving as guinea pigs for social credit systems that allow for constant surveillance and for the evaluation of citizens via AI, and for the required use of digital payment systems. The globalists most likely targeted China for these experiments, before broader application in the world, because the emphasis on technological development in Chinese society, and Chinese naivety about the negative impact of technological innovation on human society, made the Chinese ready victims.

These technofascist policies are promoted by many bureaucrats in the Chinese Communist Party, but they did not originate in China. They are but a part of a global strategy for control of the world’s economy by the financial elites, cunning men who flatter the Chinese about the effectiveness of their response to COVID-19, and their potential to be innovation leaders through AI.

What is desperately needed in response to the current effort of globalists to induce needless conflicts between nation states, and within nations, through operations like the Shanghai lockdown, is an alliance of citizens in China, Russia, the United States, and other countries against the predations of multinational investment banks and corporations, an alliance that resembles the internationalist anti-fascist movements of the 1930s.

The Shanghai lockdown was designed to increase the isolation of the individual in a technological prison while also creating greater distance between Americans (Westerners) and Chinese who ought to be cooperating to respond to the threat of techno-fascism. It is time for us all to come together in response.

陷入封锁的上海——中国的乌克兰?

陷入封锁的上海

中国的乌克兰?

贝一明 Emanuel Pastreich

2022年 4月 15日

上个星期各家主流报纸和社会媒体已经被上海封城的恐怖场景所淹没: 上海市已将数以百万计的人民囚禁在家中长达几周;在极其严苛的限制措施之下,他们甚至难以得到最基本的生活物资。

照片中,市民们有的在自己的公寓中无奈地嘶吼,有的歇斯底里地发表着无人听闻的抗议,让人潸然泪下;视频中,无人机和机器人在上海空荡荡的街道上巡逻。这一切都将极权主义统治所造成的惨状展现得淋漓尽致,而这些场面早已在众多预言中出现。

各个媒体的言外之意,是中国自己恰为这场噩梦的源头。

上海市的官方阐述并未被中国共产党否认,且因为显得过于极端而招致讥讽。

3月28日,上海开始采取“清零”政策,令所有上海市民深受其苦。该政策以黄浦江东岸为起点,自4月1日起覆盖全城,以阻止一种并不存在的疾病蔓延。按照规定,全体市民都要接受核酸检测。根据媒体报道,在某一时段的全部受检测者中,只有26,087例新增阳性患者,其中仅仅914名病例出现了症状。

也就是说,封城的理由荒诞至极,让整场抗疫行动成为了一出闹剧。也许这场行动的主旨便是告诉市民应该乖乖听话,不论其缘由多么荒谬不经。

对于此情此景,西方主流媒体自有一套早已准备好的说辞:中国共产党奉行反对民主的社会主义思想,正在践踏公民的基本人权,同我们西方人背道而驰。

杰克·波索比亚克(Jack Posobiec),一位自称为“资深海军情报官员”的美国人,就上海封城一事在推特上发布了多篇博文,对共产主义大加谴责,做出了许多诸如“中国共产党竟然如此对待上海两千六百万名市民”的评论。

西方的《人权观察》反应迅速,立即谴责中国政府侵犯了上海市民的人权,并于4月6日表示,“中国政府在应对突发的新冠疫情时应当尊重人们的健康权和其他基本权利”,却对其他各国所采取的相似乃至更为残忍的措施未置一词。

问题在于,尽管这次大封锁被归咎于共产主义观念,但在中国共产党的统治历史中,并没有大城市被封闭管理的先例。技术法西斯主义入侵的任何一个原因都无法追溯至毛泽东与周恩来为反抗阶级压迫和帝国主义而发起的斗争。

事实证明,上海的封锁与2013年4月15日马拉松爆炸案发生之后的波士顿封城大同小异——恰恰在九年之前。当时美国联邦政府,尤其是FBI,对恐怖袭击(在这件事上依然疑云密布)发起了含糊其辞的指控,并用其作为封锁波士顿大部分地区,将民众囚禁在家,让武警巡逻街道的借口。

波士顿封城

我们不禁要问:策划上海封城的,同封锁波士顿乃至全球的,会不会是同一伙人?导致上海今日之遭遇的,会不会并非中国共产党,或者说,中国共产党并非这一切的主谋?

几部中国人跳楼自杀的恐怖视频也被广为传播。视频内容也许是真实的,但传播的广度与真实度之间并不能划等号。

还有一条点击量很大的视频:一台酷似波士顿机械狗的犬型机器人在街道上巡逻,还通过背上的扩音器告诫上海市民不要外出。

任何具有批判眼光的人看到它,都会不禁心生质疑——扩音喇叭只是用隔离带随随便便地捆在了机器狗上,让整个画面显得像是一场漫不经心的摆拍,而且明显缺乏严肃性,无法代表政府的政策。

然而,各个媒体就动物在上海受虐一事颠来倒去地大谈特谈,这倒是表明此次封锁行动有幕后势力的参与,而且这股势力与中国共产党的官僚体制无关。互联网上,活猫被围捕、装入袋子中等待处理的图片铺天盖地;另有一部广受关注的视频:一名残忍的中国人套住一只痛苦万分的狗,将它丢进了一个装满伤狗的集装箱。尽管该视频确实会引起不适,但我猜那些反映美国大型屠宰场内部情况的视频恐怕更让惊恐万状的美国人无法直视。

活猫被围捕

专注地谴责残害动物行为是乌克兰妖魔化俄罗斯的标准化做法。比如,在Twitter得到了广泛传播 “Soi Dog组织联合创始人约翰·达利”为拯救乌克兰境内的猫狗而发起了求援。

还有大量迹象表明,上海封城与乌克兰遭受俄罗斯入侵一样,正在被用来针对西方受众大做文章。展现在人们眼前的,是中国共产党集权政府正在残酷压迫可怜的、呐喊着想要摆脱荒谬的“清零政策”的上海市民,然而并未表示这些防疫措施本身即不合理。

MSN是这样报道的:“多部视频中,被封在家中的居民反反复复地呼喊着:‘我们要吃的’、‘我们要自由’;还有一部,可以看到里面的市民站在阳台上,为缺少物资而抗议。”

上海封城——另类的战争

美国特工(也许还包括以色列和其他国家同全球金融圈有所联系的各方)是如何与中国的腐败官员相勾结、策划并实施上海封锁行动的,其详情我无从知晓。然而,既然这些日子里,仅以猜测为依据、漏洞百出的小道消息大行其道,我也想根据自己掌握的、可供佐证的中英文资料来推断幕后的一切,希望读者切勿见怪。

我们要从正确的地缘政治角度来看待上海封城一事。过去的两个月里,中国面临着来自华盛顿方面的巨大压力——俄罗斯军队进入乌克兰之后,美国一直在设法打消中国同俄罗斯联邦开展任何合作的可能性。

我们来整理一下导致上海封城的关键事件。

318,美国总统乔·拜登同习近平主席对话,警告中华人民共和国,倘若对俄罗斯提供任何经济或者——尤其是军事方面的援助,中国便要承担严重后果。白宫新闻秘书简·普萨基(Jen Psakiex)作了以下说明:“他阐明了在俄罗斯对乌克兰的城市和市民发动残忍侵袭时,中国要是向其提供实质性的支持,其影响和后果将会如何。”

我们并不知道拜登是怎样说的,然而321——仅仅三天之后,本应在广州国际机场顺利着陆的中国东方航空MU5735客机忽然莫名其妙地一头栽向地面。三个星期之后,事故原因仍旧没有公布。

许多中国人相信,坠机事件发生后不久出现在微博(还有其他网站)上的视频中的争吵是远程劫持所致(与911事件相似),而其幕后黑手很可能是美国。这一说法已经“美国情报调查”State of the Nation 官博证实。此外,美国还派出七人小组参与此次中国国内坠机事件的调查,这一出人意料的决定实在非同寻常、令人浮想联翩。

随后,上海市人民政府——而非正在放松防疫政策的中央政府——于3月28日忽然开始推行严厉的阳性病例“清零”政策。

如果美国的情报特工正在寻求让中国拥有自己的“乌克兰”,为他们之前在香港策划并出资支持的一切寻找新的舞台,上海便是理想的选择。

上海是全球金融利益集团汇集之地——中国所有的跨国投资银行以及跨国企业的总部(或者主要分支机构)都设立在这里。它们对中国经济的影响依然举足轻重。

上海作为全球资本中心已有一百多年的历史,同中国的其他省市之间存在着寄生关系。毕竟直到20世纪40年代,来自帝国主义列强的公民还能在这里享受治外法权。

上海如今仍然抱守着上述传统,拥有中国最为极端的经济特区政策。根据这些政策,外资企业可以在没有政府授权的情况之下从事各种活动。

作为满足跨国企业需求的手段之一,上海政府已经将其服务职能私有化,并且已把技术手段推广至方方面面。这座城市一直在热烈追捧智能电网、5G技术、线上治理和自动化,今年在朱尼普研究公司全球智慧城市榜上名列前茅。

上海已经为全球金融势力铺就红毯,正在向精英机构投资者们赠予特权。它敞开了大门,迎接一切来自海外的投资活动,同时还在拓展金融衍生产品市场,允许投资银行在这里建立它们自己的“财富管理合资企业”。

那么在上海封城事件背后,中国可能有哪些势力参与其中?

上海有许多同国际金融集团过从甚密的亿万富豪,他们或许在利益的驱使之下扮演了伊戈尔·科洛姆斯基的角色。科洛姆斯基是乌克兰的金融寡头,在美国的怂恿之下扶持了乌克兰现任总统弗拉基米尔·泽连斯基。

举个例子。我们都知道,中国富豪马云(Jack Ma)在创办可与亚马逊匹敌的全球营销、分销集团阿里巴巴时,接受了高盛投资公司和其他美国投资银行的巨额资助,同时对中国政策颇有微词。马云大受全球主义者的欢迎,如今仍是世界经济论坛基金董事会董事。

尽管相关详情尚不明朗,但两年之前。马云在中国推动全球主义议程这一举动的确引起了包括习近平在内的中央政策制定者的抵触。马云创办的蚂蚁集团是一个旨在通过建立不受规管的银行体系来开展金融改革的金融机构。2020年10月24日,他发表了一篇演讲,呼吁实现银行系统的重大变革。其结果是中央政府对其进行了严厉打击,从此之后他几乎再也没有公开露面。

阿里巴巴的总部位于离上海不远的杭州,在上海的势力最大。

某些美国富豪也有利用上海强行闯入中国、令其面向外资打开大门的兴趣。比如私人股权投资公司黑石集团的CEO史蒂芬·施瓦茨曼(Stephen Schwarzman,又名苏世民)便已经斥资收买中国共产党党员中的大批知识分子与政府官员。尤其值得一提的是,他动用了一千多亿美元在清华大学设立了极负盛名的“苏世民学者项目”,同时也开展了其他活动。

另一位在中国投以巨资的美国富豪是约翰·L·桑顿布鲁金斯学会中国研究中心的创始人约翰·桑顿(John Thornton)。桑顿是中投公司(中国主权财富基金)国际咨询委员会会员,一直在致力于扩大外国势力对中国金融政策的影响力。

上海封城与全球经济混乱

主流媒体已经将全球经济混乱归咎于上海的封锁,称其原因为在上海制造、通过上海运输,或者某些零件要在上海制作的电子产品、汽车和其他家庭用品的生产和交付遭遇推迟。尽管经济混乱困局的确存在,但我们完全有理由相信,这一问题会被人利用夸大,以掩饰超级富豪为进一步破坏全球经济、剥削地球公民所实施的恶行。

一方面,乌克兰危机成为了全球农产品、原材料、天然气和制成品突然短缺的理由;另一方面,他们又称全球贸易因为上海危机而受到重挫。二者结合起来足以解释任何一个领域乱象的根源。

中国另一个主要的制造业和金融中心广州也已经准备实施“清零”政策。届时经济放缓、供应链中断、通胀加剧、物资短缺等问题将一一出现,他们也会心愿得遂。

意料之中的是,根据中国国家疾病控制预防中心的说法,上海封城所导致的经济危机已被当成了提高中国疫苗接种率、推动首款国产mRNA新冠疫苗广泛使用的理由。

俄罗斯与中国的不同之处

就本质而言,通过乌克兰打击俄国,以及通过上海来打击中国,二者有着明显的不同。尽管十年以来,中美交战已经成为各方面挂在嘴边的话题,但两国存在着盘根错节的经济联系,甚至还在政治舞台上开展深度合作。此外,对于刺激它针对台湾、香港和南中国海采取军事行动的做法,中国已经表示拒绝予以回应。因此对中国的打击一定要以隐晦的方式来进行,要让人们认为,是中国共产党在摧残上海人民。此时此刻,在公众的视野中,美国势力的黑手根本无处可寻。

遥想1972年,美国时任总统理查德·尼克松同毛泽东主席会面之后,中美关系便开始破冰。与之相比,俄罗斯从未经历过类似的阶段,美俄之间的经济融合度也并不是很高。虽说也曾有俄罗斯人在美国求学,但赴美留学对俄罗斯人的吸引力似乎不像对中国人那么大,

因此尽管美国对俄罗斯既进行了经济投资,又开展了政治干预,但俄罗斯并未深度融入美国的物流与供应链;在俄罗斯境内,美国投资银行的关系方要少得多,其所获得的利益也少得多。

应做之事

中国人民已经被卷入了大重启计划,成为了实验的小白鼠,一方面要接受AI社会信用系统的持续监测与评估,另一方面还要按照要求使用数字支付系统。早在拓展其活动范围之前,全球主义者本来就最有可能把中国当作上述实验的目标,因为中国一直都十分重视技术发展,且并不深知技术创新对人类社会的负面影响。于是中国人民成为了牺牲品。

这些技术法西斯主义政策的确经过许多中国共产党的官员之手推行,却并非起源于中国。它们不过是某种全球策略的一部分;该策略的最终目标是让金融精英和哄骗中国人民相信抗疫措施切实有效、自己能够借AI之力成为创新领袖的奸人得以控制世界经济,

为了应对全球主义者的所作所为,消除国家之间与各国地方与地方之间的不必要冲突,中国、俄罗斯、美国以及其他国家的公民急需携起手来,建立起类似于20世纪30年代国际主义反法西斯战线的联盟,对抗跨国投资银行和企业的掠夺。

上海封城背后的原因,是他们想要人们在技术监狱中进一步彼此隔绝,拉大美国民众(乃至西方民众)同中国人民之间的距离——而他们本该同舟共济,为抗击技术法西斯主义而通力合作。现在正是我们联合起来、予以应对的时候。

为中国人民的解放而继续奋斗

一位美籍汉语言文学博士的宣言

贝一明 Emanuel Pastreich

2022年 4月 5日

最近听到上海封城,而人民不能出门,不能做任何活动。

所有的自由,所有的人权,所有的生活基础都无处可寻。我真的担心中国的人民,特别是上海的人民。

对我来说,虽然我不是中国人,但是中国的伟大文化、古老的文明给了我极大的灵感,让我深受感动。进入大学之后,我开始学习中文,开始读中国的儒教、道教和佛教典籍,从而发现,一种有别于西方的文化传统可以给我们更好的选择。我们不需要固守以消费和自我为中心的西方文化——它只会令腐败问题愈演愈烈。我们能够选择另外一条道路。

我也读过关于孙文和毛泽东思想的理论著作,获益良多。他们的思想给了我新的想法。起初,我本来想用东方的文化来改革美国,治疗美国严重的文化疾病。

而现在,中国人正陷在危险的困境之中。我该怎么办?我们该怎么办?

第一,我们需要追求真实。不可以为了一时的方便而掩耳盗铃。

有些美国人说中国共产党正在摧残中国人民,说中国走社会主义道路大错特错。这群人是在自欺欺人。我们应该道出真相:中国人民的敌人并不是共产党。虽然有一些危险的人物混入了中国共产党,歪曲了中国共产党的政策,但是中国共产党本来的主旨是为人民做贡献、反对阶级社会和帝国主义。这种思想并无错误,完全正确。我们应该不忘初心。而且这种思想,这种方向就是这个时代所需要的。

社会主义也有各种政策、各种解释,但是一般来说,它是一种以人民为主的意识形态和政治哲学。

那么为什么上海的人民,中国的人民,因为一个假的疫情而受到这样没有道理的折磨和剝削?

因为两个基本的问题,而不是因为哪一位政治家、因为哪一条政策出了岔子,也不是因为哪一个国家从中作祟。

那么这两个问题是什么?

答案就在毛泽东主席给我,给我们的教诲之中。毛主席常常强调,我们所面对的最大挑战是阶级与帝国主义——当然二者有密切的关联。

阶级问题的本质,是极端的财产集中催生出享有特权的阶级。这个阶级,所谓财阀,认为人民就是可以利用,剝削的对象。这一阶级毫无责任感。根据毛主席的思想,我们应该打倒这些人。

在中国,在美国,以及全球的特权阶级的想法和行动如出一辙。他们策划这场疫情骗局来摧残中国人民,折磨全地球的人民。

帝国主义的外延,是一些西方国家利用军事技术与新型的经济战略来压迫周边国家的人民。帝国主义包括经济手段,文化活动,军事战略,且涉及到教育和媒体。

但是同以往相比,今天的帝国主义有所不同。当然,某些西方国家(包括美国)依然在奉行新帝国主义、欺压外国人民,但是与此同时,中国国内的特权阶级还在跟国外帝国主义分子手牵手,一起让中国人民身陷水深火热之中。

新帝国主义的主体是众多大型跨国企业和国际投资银行。美国、中国、德国,以及其他国家的这些企业并不是以服务人民为己任的组织,而是吸血的国际集团。

最近这些企业已经权势熏天。它们开始操縱联合国跟其他国际机构,乃至各个国家的政府。

他们豢养着一群貌似可信之人做国际机构的领袖,导致国际关系变为了财阀导演的闹剧。

这些人绝对不代表我们。他们背叛我们。他们可能是美国人,也可能是中国人。但是他们都来自特权阶级。他们都属于背叛中国人民的阶级,他们就是人民的敌人。

他们安排的疫情骗局不过是阶级战争的序幕。他们准备了各种计划,以利用它们来随时向我们,向人民发起进攻。

我是美国人。我曾在哈佛大学攻读汉语言博士专业。

希望存有良知的美国人、中国人,乃至其他国家的人民能够团结起来,齐心协力反抗这些危险的帝国主义和特权阶级势力。

我会为了中国人民的解放而继续奋斗

抱歉,我的中文表现力很差。但是这一次需要我自己撰写这种重要的文章。这篇文章所导致的一切后果,由我一人承担。

谢谢

Enforced social distancing for a “carbon neutral economy” in Korea

No it is not an April Fool’s joke.

This urinal at a Korean nation park demands that one maintain “social distancing” to create a “circular economy” and achieve “carbon neutrality.”

The description of the reasons that this shadow government prohibits you from using the urinal below mention “COVID-19” but at the top it only has the local for “circular economy” and “carbon neutrality.” Unlike all previous such warning signs, there is no scary COVID virus image anywhere.

然而最后我将不得不将真相讲给她听,因为要建立一个健康向善、可持续发展的社会需要人们进行经年累月、残酷至极的斗争,而在这件事上自欺欺人,将会让我们自己陷入无比危险的境地。我们绝不能因为财阀们日复一日地在前方布下障碍而灰心气馁,也不应该为一点点小成就、为国王们在享用我们的血汗钱之时扔出的一根骨头而心满意足,就此止步。

过了一会,我回答她:

“等我们创办了自己的报社和电视台,让它们能真实地反映美国的现状、击破跨国企业想让我们看到的假象;等我们根据宪法建立了自己的政府,让它对人民负责、透明公开;等我们开设了自己的学校,让它们向孩子们传授基本的道德观念,培养他们的家庭和社会责任感,训练他们独立思考、运用科学方法探索世界的能力;等我们建立起自己的货币系统,让它以实际资产而非银行家们吹起的泡沫为根基;等我们创建起民用、民享、民治的经济体系——等到那时,只有那时,我们的行动才会被媒体报道,获得应有的关注。”

美国的政体从不完美,但它曾以向善为目标。如今政府不过是一只毛茸茸的手套;藏在其中的,是各个跨国企业冷冰冰的铁拳。

在此紧要关头,我们需要通过言语、更重要的是通过实际行动来申明:我们是独立公民,正在为推倒华盛顿已朽为粪土的大厦、令尊重宪法的共和政体取而代之铺设基石。现在,我们曾经伟大辉煌的首都遍地都是金钱贩子,他们宛若秃鹫一样纷纷涌入那里,只为捡食残肉碎骨、满足贪欲。

我们对他们的计划心知肚明——尽管许多美国人仍旧难以看清这场骗局的全貌,无法识别这场阴谋背后的罪恶,不明白他们打算接管人类以及所有生命体生活的方方面面,从DNA、食物、肉体到思想乃至梦境。

但是已有越来越多的人清醒过来,发现潜伏在伪非政府组织背后的亿万富豪、已被收买的政府机构、跨国企业和银行所造成的危害。金钱贩子们因此而快马加鞭、变本加厉,以掌管我们的世界。

恰在此时,他们正在谋划发起世界大战,将战争的引线布置在乌克兰,台湾,或者其他地方。

至于这场战争是会夺取数百万人的生命乃至令人类绝迹,还是会仅仅成为进一步推动财富转移、极权统治在全球蔓延、全新世界秩序成型的幌子,我们仍不知晓。但我们的确清楚,乌克兰已经沦为疫苗护照、跟踪手段和社会控制术的试验场。

历史已经告诉我们,将战争用作政治游戏工具,一不小心便会导致事态失控,战争之犬一旦破笼而出,便不再听从主人的喝令。

发起世界大战的意图,以及将政府私有化、全面控制经济体系和公民社交系统的阴谋紧密关联。如果让他们得逞,人们所有的交流便只能通过互联网、或者在无人AI平台的规管之下进行。届时人们会失去辨明何人做出何种决策的机会,也没有办法追究作恶者的责任,只能放任他们在国内外散布政企融合之癌。

届时我们会变成囚犯,而监管我们的,是本应服务于我们的各种系统。噩梦正如夜幕一般渐渐降临。

计算机银行正在于暗处以秘密、数字化的方式制定各项决策,而控制这些银行的,是布莱克、先锋领航等跨国金融组织或者亚马逊、脸书等跨国企业。他们将作出的决定灌输给我们,命令我们遵守他们在黑暗中制定的规则。未来,我们连同人类讲话、通过第三方确认决策制定流程的机会都不会有。战争正是实现这场大重启的绝佳方式。

如果国家治理的全部程序都被外包给营利性企业,那么作出事关我们生死存亡的决定的,不论其为何人何物,都绝不可能是宪法意义上,或者伦理意义乃至任何意义上的政府。

他们希望诸位被电视洗脑,将他们当作政府权威。总之,原有政府的废墟内,早已充斥着被他们安排下的一个个木偶,而提线则掌握在跨国企业手中。

与此同时,他们还重金收买自称为保守派、自由派或社会主义拥护者的局外人和在野人士,告诉诸位问题出在政府身上,却从不道明政府被何人所控制、被何人所有,如何才能让一切回归正常。

“控制”是政治游戏的关键,向来如此。而这场巨变旨在将人类驱逐出美国的政府和企业,在本质上更为险恶。

等到政府职能已完全被AI服务通过互联网而替代,等到政府、公司中再也找不到诸位可以与之讲理申诉的人类,这场接管便大功告成。

人类被电脑 无人机和机器人所取代——诸位本来不应该注意到这一过程。他们为这场转变打出的大旗是“便捷”和“现代”,即使滥用科技会导致无法避免的后果。

请记住我的话。他们就像虐待狂一样,通过花言巧语、巧技妙招来哄受害者戴上手铐。一旦自己的系统上线,他们便会毫不留情地将诸位锁起,不留任何余地。在这样的新世界中,实现残酷的效率是重中之重,碍事的人将无处可寻。

媒体突然就警察暴力问题大谈特谈,目的是让诸位相信用机器人和无人机替代人类警察会更加安全——以美墨边境为起点,这一过程正在推进之中。机器人和无人机可直接由超级富豪来控制,而操纵者能够要么隐身于地堡,要么借助于人造卫星。呼吁申诉将成为不可能之事。

此种为奴役我们而滥用技术的恶行,我们必须予以抵制。我们必须挨家挨户地教育民众,告诉他们上述行为会催生出怎样的危险和罪恶。

政府遭到破坏的同时,货币体系也未能幸免,正在被可由阴暗势力随时操纵、删除的虚拟信用系统所取代。

货币和金融是完美专政体制不可缺少的环节。一小撮富翁可以随心所欲地为自己印钞,从而令诸位钱包中的纸币不断贬值。随着无现金社会的实现与数字货币(此物正在酝酿当中)和信用卡的强制推广,政府和各大企业即将可以为所欲为,随意冻结或者夺取诸位的钱财。

我们必须要做的事

我们完全有机会力挽狂澜,遏阻在国内外汹涌蔓延的暴政狂潮,让事态朝着对我们有利的方向发展。

然而胜利的果实还远未掌握于我们手中。此时此地,每一条街道、每一间办公室、每一个教室中的每一个人都必须尽己所能,同企业法西斯势力相抗争。正如拉比·希列所述:“我不担当,要待何人?此刻不搏,更待何时?”

我们必须建立教育、货币、食物以及物资分配等系统,并且使其彻底独立于目前用于让美国乃至世界民众沦为奴隶的罪恶网络。

正如俗语所说:

“不必愤怒,团结起来!”

不要浪费时间去发起抗议,表达对乔·拜登等百无一用的废物政客的不满。民主党和共和党无异于一群小丑和一具具行尸走肉,被人推到台前,供诸位发泄怒火,分散诸位的注意力,以掩盖幕后的黑手,让金融家们得以偷偷摸摸地转移我们的财富。

所有公民都需要彻彻底底地懂得超级富豪是如何利用它们的超级计算机、数字货币银行来控制我们的社会、操纵我们的经济系统,用哗众取宠、娱乐至上的社交网络给大众洗脑、让我们变得麻木不仁的。

一旦民众开始明白事情的真相以及补救的步骤,我们便可以采取行动了。

我们绝不应当对由超级富豪们豢养捧红的名人唯命是从。这群人都包括谁?哈,总地来说,所有可以在主流媒体上亮相的公共知识分子都已被收买。

我们绝不可以落入圈套,敌视中国、俄罗斯等国家。它们,当然也包括美国,都已陷入可怕的境地。我们面前是一场跨国阶级斗争,而主流媒体却谎话连篇,将其捏造为民族国家之间的矛盾与冲突。

超级富豪们还通过自己的代理人和拥趸误导民众,对所谓的“左翼人士”大批特批。比如,由企业资助的战争狂民主党便被“保守”媒体斥为“左翼党派”。本人怀疑对“左翼”一词的滥用实为一场旨在迷惑大众的阴谋,目的是让大家认为左翼思想、社会主义以及共产主义政策,还有马克思主义分析方法才是大肆扩展的企业法西斯主义的根源。

毫无疑问,这一策略的主旨,是阻止我们借用社会主义与马克思主义分析方法来思考,应对富豪们对经济系统的侵蚀恶行。在他们看来,诸位绝不应该了解计划经济、财富再分配的手段或许可以解决当前的危机。不,诸位只能对着腐败诡诈的政客大发雷霆,但绝不可以琢磨经济结构方面的问题。

卡尔·马克思、弗拉基米尔·列宁、毛泽东以及其他共产主义和社会主义领袖们的过失都已存案,他们犯下的错误为我们提供了可以借鉴的宝贵经验。

同时,他们也在各自的著作中针对利益驱动型经济和资本主导的权力关系等深层结构问题提出了极具参考价值的见解。他们都提出了旨在发起根本性改变、有别于肤浅改革的解决方案。与“增量式”、“渐进式”改革相比,此种意识形态和经济方面的彻底转变,恰恰是我们今天所需要的。

我们可以,也必须思索经济、政治和社会政策方面的左翼传统究竟为何物,必须深入揣摩以往革命留下的经验教训,辨明何者有效,何者无效。请记住,在苏联诸多实验性做法的启发之下,美国在20世纪30年代新政时期采取了经济管制措施。

在过去的两年中,数万亿美元被超级富豪窃取;在过去的二十年里,由跨国企业行为催生的通货膨胀和大量失业所导致的财产流失更是难以估量。他们的盗窃行为已经从根本上改变了我们社会的结构。

要让社会健康如初,我们除了在超级富豪和普通民众之间进行彻底的财富再分配,别无他法。

我们要是安于现状,那么便只能迎接奴隶社会的降临。

我们不能盲从马克思主义理论,但同时也不能固步自封、受人蒙蔽,对宝贵传统中的精辟观点视而不见。面对危机,我们要脚踏实地,绝不可畏首畏尾,惧于去未曾料想之地发掘解决之道。

我们终将需要占领超级富豪们的大本营,关闭他们的金融网络,没收他们的超级计算机,摧毁他们藏于深山之中、本来打算让其不见天日的武器仓库。任何观点,任何政策,任何战略,只要能帮助我们应对面前的残酷战争,我们都不应该弃而不用。
