Re: Long Texts: Chi Haotian speech

** The Secret Speech of General Chi Haotian - 2003

This is the text of the 2003 speech by China's General Chi Haotian.

This is the version posted by Jeff Nyquist in his blog:

https://jrnyquist.blog/2019/09/11/the-s ... i-haotian/

The riginal version in Chinese was published in 2005 by the Epoch Times:

http://epochtimes.com/gb/5/8/1/n1003911.htm

The speech follows:

Comrades,

I’m very excited today, because the large-scale online survey sina.com
that was done for us showed that our next generation is quite
promising and our party’s cause will be carried on. In answering the
question, “Will you shoot at women, children and prisoners of war,”
more than 80 percent of the respondents answered in the affirmative,
exceeding by far our expectations.

Today I’d like to focus on why we asked sina.com to conduct this
online survey among our people. My speech today is a sequel to my
speech last time, during which I started with a discussion of the
issue of the three islands, [where I] mentioned that 20 years of the
idyllic theme of “peace and development” had come to an end, and
concluded that modernization under the saber is the only option for
China’s next phase. I also mention we have a vital stake
overseas. Today, I’ll speak more specifically on these two issues.

The central issue of this survey appears to be whether one should
shoot at women, children and prisoners of war, but its real
significance goes far beyond that. Ostensibly, our intention is mainly
to figure out what the Chinese people’s attitude toward war is: If
these future soldiers do not hesitate to kill even non-combatants,
they’ll naturally be doubly ready and ruthless in killing
combatants. Therefore, the responses to the survey questions may
reflect the general attitude people have towards war.

Actually, however, this is not our genuine intention. The purpose of
the CCP Central Committee in conducting this survey is to probe
people’s minds. We wanted to know: If China’s global development will
necessitate massive deaths in enemy countries, will our people endorse
that scenario? Will they be for or against it?

As everybody knows, the essence of Comrade Xiaoping’s thinking is
“development is the hard truth.” And Comrade Jintao, has also pointed
out repeatedly and emphatically that “development is our top
priority,” which should not be neglected for even a moment. But many
comrades tend to understand “development” in its narrow sense,
assuming it to be limited to domestic development. The fact is, our
“development” refers to the great revitalization of the Chinese
nation, which, of course, is not limited to the land we have now but
also includes the whole world.

Why do I put it this way?

Both Comrade Liu Huaquing, one of the leaders of the old generation in
our Party, and Comrade He Xin, a young strategist of our Party, have
repeatedly stressed the theory regarding the shift of the center of
World Civilization. Our slogan of “revitalizing China” has this way of
thinking as its basis. You may look into the newspapers and magazines
published in recent years or go online to do some research to find out
who raised the slogan of national revitalization first. It was Comrade
He Xin. Do you know who He Xin is? He may look aggressive and
despicable when he speaks in public, with his sleeves and pants all
rolled up, but his historical vision is a treasure our Party should
cherish.

In discussing this issue, let us start from the beginning.

As everybody knows, according to the views propagated by Western
scholars, humanity as a whole originated from one single mother in
Africa. Therefore, no race can claim racial superiority. However,
according to the research conducted by most Chinese scholars, the
Chinese are different from other races on earth. We did not originate
in Africa. Instead, we originated independently in the land of
China. The Peking Man at Zhoukoudian that we are all familiar with
represents a phase of our ancestors’ evolution. “The Project of
Searching for the Origins of the Chinese Civilization” currently
undertaken in our country is aimed at a more comprehensive and
systematic research on the origin, process and development of the
ancient Chinese civilization. We use to say, “Chinese civilization has
had a history of five thousand years.” But now, many experts engaged
in research in varied fields including archeology, ethnic cultures,
and regional cultures have reached consensus that the new discoveries
such as the Hongshan Culture in the northeast, the Liangahn Cutlure in
Zhejiang province, the Jinsha Ruins in Sichuan province, and the
Yongzhou Shun Emperor Cultural Site in Hunan province are all
compelling evidence of the exitence of China’s early civilizations,
and they prove that China’s rice-growing agricultural history alone
can be traced back as far as 8,000 to 10,000 years. This refutes the
concept of “five thousand years of Chinese civilization.”

Therefore, we can assert that we are the product of cultural roots of
more than a million years, and a single Chinese entity of two thousand
years. This is the Chinese entity of two thousand years. This is the
Chinese nation that calls itself, “descendants of Yan and Huang,” the
Chinese nation that we are so proud of. Hitler’s Germany had once
bragged that the German race was the most superior race on earth, but
the fact is, our nation is far superior to the Germans.

During our long history, our people have disseminated throughout the
Americas and the regions along the Pacific Rim, and they became
Indians in the Americas and the East Asian ethnic groups in the South
Pacific.

We all know that on account of our national superiority, during the
thriving and prosperous Tang Dynasty our civilization was at the peak
of the world. We were the center of the world civilization, and no
other civilization in the world was comparable to ours. Later on,
because of our complacency, narrow-mindedness, and the self-enclosure
of our own country, we were surpassed by Western civilization, and the
center of the world shifted to the West.

In reviewing history, one may ask: Will the center of the world
civilization shift back to China?

Comrade He Xin put it in his report to the Central Committee in 1988:
If the fact is that the center of leadership of the world was located
in Europe as of the 18th Century, and later shifted to the United
States in the mid-20th century the center of leadership of the world
will shift to the East of our planet. And, “the East” of course mainly
refers to China.

Actually, Comrade Lui Huaquing made similar points in the 1980s. Based
on an historical analysis, he pointed out that the center of world
civilization is shifting. It shifted from the East to Western Europe
and later to the United States; now it is shifting back to the
East. Therefore, if we refer to the 19th century as the British
century, and the 20th century as the American century, then the 21st
century will be the Chinese century.

To understand conscientiously this historical law and to greet the
advent of the Chinese Century is the historical mission of our
Party. As we all know, at the end of the last century, we built the
Altar to the Chinese Century in Beijing.

At the very moment of the arrival of the new millennium, the
collective leadership of the Party Central Committee gathered there
for a rally, upholding the torches of Zhoukoudian, to pledge
themselves to get ready to greet the arrival of the Chinese
Century. We were doing this to follow the historical law and setting
the realization of the Chinese century as the goal of our Party’s
endeavors.

Later, in the political report of our Party’s Sixteenth National
Congress, we established that national revitalization should be our
great objective and explicitly specified in our new Party Constitution
that our Party is the pioneer of the Chinese people. All these steps
marked a major development in Marxism, reflecting our Party’s courage
and wisdom. As we all know, Marx and his followers have never referred
to any communist party as a pioneer of a certain people; neither did
they say that national revitalization could be used as a slogan of a
communist party. Even Comrade Mao Zedong, a courageous national hero,
only raised high the banner of “the global proletarian revolution,”
but even he did not have the courage to give the loudest publicity to
the slogan of national revitalization.

We must greet the arrival of the Chinese Century by raising high the
banner of national revitalization. How should we fight for the
realization of the Chinese Century? We must borrow the precious
experiences in human history by taking advantage of the outstanding
fruition of human civilization and drawing lessons from what happened
to other ethnic groups.

The lessons include the collapse of communism in the former Soviet
Union and Eastern Europe, as well as the defeats of Germany and Japan
in the past. Recently there has been much discussion of the lessons of
the collapse of communism in the former Soviet Union and Eastern
European countries, so I will not dwell on them here. Today I’d like
to talk about the lessons of Germany and Japan.

As we all know, Nazi Germany also placed much emphasis on the
education of the people, especially the younger generation. The Nazi
Party and government organized and established various propaganda and
educational institutions such as the “Guiding Bureau of National
Propaganda,” “Department of National Education and Propaganda,”
“Supervising Bureau of Worldview Study and Education,” and
“Information Office,” all aimed at instilling into the people’s minds,
from elementary schools to colleges, the idea that German people are
superior, and convincing people that the historical mission of the
Aryan people is to become the “lords of the earth” whose right it is
to “rule over the world.” Back then the German people were much more
united than we are today.

Nonetheless, Germany was defeated in utter shame, along with its ally,
Japan. Why? We reached some conclusions at the study meetings of the
Politburo, in which we were searching for the laws that governed the
vicissitudes of the big powers, and trying to analyze Germany and
Japan’s rapid growth. When we decide to revitalize based on the German
model, we must not repeat the mistakes they made.

Specifically, the following are the fundamental causes for their
defeat: First, they had too many enemies all at once, as they did not
adhere to the principle of eliminating enemies one at a time; second,
they were too impetuous, lacking the patience and perseverance
required for great accomplishments; third, when the time came for them
to be ruthless, they turned out to be too soft, therefore leaving
troubles that resurfaced later on.

Let’s presume that back then Germany and Japan had been able to keep
the United States neutral and had fought a protracted war step by step
on the Soviet front. If they had adopted this approach, gained some
time to advance their research, eventually succeeded in obtaining the
technology of nuclear weapons and missiles, and launched surprise
attacks against the United States and the Soviet Union using them,
then the United States and the Soviet Union would not have been able
to defend themselves and would have had to surrender. Little Japan, in
particular, made an egregious mistake in launching the sneak attack on
Pearl Harbor. This attack did not hit the vital parts of the United
States. Instead, it dragged the United States into the war, into the
ranks of the gravediggers that eventually buried the German and
Japanese fascists.

Of course, if they had not made these three mistakes and won the war,
history would have been written in a different fashion. If that had
been the case, China would not be in our hands. Japan might have
relocated their capital to China and ruled over China. Afterwards,
China and the whole of Asia under Japan’s command would have brought
into full play the oriental wisdom, conquered the West ruled by
Germany and unified the whole world. This is irrelevant, of course. No
more digressions.

So, the fundamental reason for the defeats of Germany and Japan is
that history did not arrange them to be the “lords of the earth,” for
they are, after all, not the most superior race.

Ostensibly, in comparison, today’s China is alarmingly similar to
Germany back then. Both of them regard themselves as the most superior
races; both of them have a history of being exploited by foreign
powers and are therefore vindictive; both of them have the tradition
of worshipping their own authorities; both of them feel that they have
seriously insufficient living space; both of them raise high the two
banners of nationalism and socialism and label themselves as “national
socialism”; both of them worship “one state, one party, one leader,
and one doctrine.”

And yet, if we really are to make a comparison between Germany and
China, then, as Comrade Jiang Zemin put it, Germany belongs to
“pediatrics” – too trivial to be compared. How large is Germany’s
population? How big is its territory? And how long is its history? We
eliminated eight million nationalist troops in only three years. How
many enemies did Germany kill? They were in power for a transient
period of little more than a dozen years before they perished, while
we are still energetic after being around for more than eighty
years. Our theory of the shifting center of civilization is of course
more profound than Hitler’s theory of “the lords of the earth.” Our
civilization is profound and broad, which has determined that we are
so much wiser than they were.

Our Chinese people are wiser than the Germans because, fundamentally,
our race is superior to theirs. As a result, we have a longer history,
more people, and larger land area. On this basis our ancestors left us
with the two most essential heritages, which are atheism and great
unity. It was Confucius, the founder of our Chinese culture, who gave
us these heritages.

This heritage determined that we have a stronger ability to survive
than the West. That is why the Chinese race has been able to prosper
for so long. We are destined “not to be buried by either heaven or
earth” no matter how severe the natural, man-made, and national
disasters. This is our advantage.

Take response to war as an example. The reason that the United States
remains today is that it has never seen war on its mainland. Once its
enemies aim at the mainland, these enemies would reach Washington
before its congress finishes debating and authorizes the president to
declare war. But for us, we don’t waste time on these trivial
things. Comrade Deng Xiaoping once said, “The Party’s leadership is
prompt in making decisions. Once a decision is made, it is immediately
implemented. There’s no wasting time on trivial things like in
capitalist countries. This is our advantage! Our Party’s democratic
centralism is built on the tradition of great unity. Although fascist
Germany also stressed high-level centralism, they only focused on
power of the top leader, but ignored the collective leadership of the
central group. That’s why Hitler was betrayed by many later in his
life, which fundamentally depleted the Nazis of their war capacity.

What makes us different from Germany is that we are complete atheists,
while Germany was primarily a Catholic and Protestant country. Hitler
was only half atheist. Although Hitler also believed that ordinary
citizens had low intelligence, and that leaders should therefore make
decisions, and although German people worshipped Hitler back then,
Germany did not have the tradition of worshipping sages on a broad
basis. Our Chinese society has always worshipped sages, and that is
because we don’t worship any God. Once you worship a god, you can’t
worship a person at the same time, unless you recognize the person as
the god’s representative like they do in Middle Eastern countries. On
the other hand, once you recognize a person as a sage, of course you
will want him to be your leader…. This is the foundation of our
democratic centralism.

The bottom line is, only China is a reliable force in resisting the
Western parliament-based democratic system. Hitler’s dictatorship in
Germany was perhaps but a momentary mistake in history.

Maybe you have now come to understand why we recently decided to
further promulgate atheism. If we let theology from the West into
China and empty us from the inside, if we let all Chinese people
listen to God and follow God, who will obediently listen to us and
follow us? If the common people don’t believe Comrade Hu Jintao is a
qualified leader, question his authority, and want to monitor him, if
the religious followers in our society question why we are leaving God
in churches, can our Party continue to rule China?

Germany’s dream to be the “lord of the earth” failed, because
ultimately, history did not bestow this great mission upon them. But
the three lessons Germany learned from experience are what we ought to
remember as we complete our historic mission and revitalize our
race. The three lessons are: Firmly grasp the country’s living space;
firmly grasp the Party’s control over the nation; and firmly grasp the
general direction toward becoming the “lord of the earth.”

Next, I’d like to address these three issues.

The first issue is living space. This is the biggest focus of the
revitalization of the Chinese race. In my last speech, I said that the
fight over basic living resources (including land and ocean) is the
source of the vast majority of wars in history. This may change in the
information age, but not fundamentally. Our per capita resources are
much less than those of Germany’s back then. In addition, economic
development in the last twenty-plus years had a negative impact, and
climates are rapidly changing for the worse. Our resources are in very
short supply. The environment is severely polluted, especially that of
soil, water, and air. Not only our ability to sustain and develop our
race, but even its survival is gravely threatened, to a degree much
greater than faced by Germany back then.

Anybody who has been to Western countries knows that their living
space is much better than ours. They have forests alongside the
highways, while we hardly have any trees by our streets. Their sky is
often blue with white clouds, while our sky is covered by a layer of
dark haze. Their tap water is clean enough for drinking, while even
our ground water is so polluted that it can’t be drunk without
filtering. They have few people in the streets, and two or three
people can occupy a small residential building; in contrast, our
streets are always crawling with people, and several people have to
share on room.

Many years ago, there was a book titled Yellow Catastrophes. It said
that, due to our following the American style of consumption, our
limited resources would not long support the population and society
would collapse, once our population reaches 1.3 billion. Now our
population has already exceeded this limit, and we are now relying on
imports to sustain our nation. It’s not that we haven’t paid attention
to this issue. The Ministry of Land Resources is specialized in this
issue.

But the term ‘living space’ (lebensraum) is too closely related to
Nazi Germany. The reason we don’t want to discuss this too openly is
to avoid the West’s association of us with Nazi Germany, which could
in turn reinforce the view that China is a threat. Therefore, in our
emphasis on He Xin’s new theory, “Human rights are just living
rights,” we only talk about “living,” but not “space,” so as to avoid
using the term “living space.” From the perspective of history, the
reason that China is faced with the issue of living space is because
Western countries established colonies ahead of Eastern
countries. Western countries established colonies all around the
world, therefore giving themselves an advantage on the issue of living
space. To solve this problem, we must lead the Chinese people outside
of China, so that they could develop outside of China.

The second issue is our focus on the leadership capacity of the ruling
party. We’ve done better on this than their party. Although the Nazis
spread their power to every aspect of the German national government,
they did not stress their absolute leadership position like we
have. They did not take the issue of managing the power of the party
as first priority, which we have. When Comrade Mao Zedong summarized
the “three treasures” of our party’s victory in conquering the
country, he considered the most important “treasure” to be developing
the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and strengthening its leadership
position.

We have to focus on two points to fortify our leadership position and
improve our leadership capacity.

The first is to promote the “Three Represents” theory, stressing that
our Party is the pioneer of the Chinese race, in addition to being the
pioneer of the proletariat. Many citizens say in private, “We never
voted for you, the Communist Party, to represent us. How can you claim
to be our representatives?”

There’s no need to worry about this issue. Comrade Mao Zedong said
that if we could lead the Chinese people outside of China, resolving
the lack of living space in China, the Chinese people will support
us. At that time, we don’t’ have to worry about the labels of
“totalitarianism” or “dictatorship.” Whether we can forever represent
the Chinese people depends on whether we can succeed in leading the
Chinese people out of China.

The second point, whether we can lead the Chinese people out of China,
is the most important determinant of the CCP’s leadership position.

Why do I say this?

Everyone knows that without the leadership of our Party, China would
not exist today. Therefore, our highest principle is to forever
protect our Party’s leadership position. Before June 4, we realized
vaguely that as long as China’s economy is developed, people would
support and love the Communist Party. Therefore we had to use several
decades of peacetime to develop China’s economy. No matter what-isms,
whether it is a white cat or a black at, it is a good cat if it can
develop China’s economy. But at that time, we did not have mature
ideas about how China would deal with international disputes after its
economy becomes developed.

Comrade Xiaoping said then that the main themes in the world were
peace and development. But the June 4 riot gave our Party a warning
and gave us a lesson that is still fresh.

The pressure of China’s peaceful evolution makes us reconsider of
these two main themes of our time. We see that neither of these two
issues, peace and development, have been resolved. The western
oppositional forces always change the world according to their own
visions; they want to change China and use peaceful evolution to
overturn the leadership of our Communist Party. Therefore, if we only
develop the economy, we still face the possibility of losing control.

The June 4 riot almost succeeded in bringing a peaceful transition; if
it were not for the fact that a large number of veteran comrades were
still alive and at a crucial moment they removed Zhao Ziyang and his
followers, then we all would have been put in prison. After death we
would have been too ashamed to report to Marx. Although we have passed
the test of June 4, after our group of senior comrades pass away,
without our control, peaceful evolution may still come to China like
it did to the former Soviet Union. In 1956, they suppressed the
Hungarian incident and defeated the attacks by Tito’s revisionists of
Yugoslavia, but they could not withstand Gorbachev thirty some years
later. Once those pioneering senior comrades died, the power of the
Communist Party was taken away by peaceful evolution.

After the June 4 riot was suppressed, we have been thinking about how
to prevent China from peaceful evolution and how to maintain the
Communist Party’s leadership. We thought it over and over but did not
come up with any good ideas. If we do not have good ideas, China will
inevitably change peacefully, and we will all become criminals in
history. After some deep pondering, we finally come to this
conclusion: Only by turning our developed national strength into the
force of a first striking outward – only by leading people to go out –
can we win forever the Chinese people’s support and love for the
Communist Party. Our party will then stand on invincible ground, and
the Chinese people will have to depend on the Communist Party. They
will forever follow the Communist Party with their hearts and minds,
as was written in a couplet frequently seen in the countryside some
years ago: “Listen to Chairman Mao, follow the Communist Party!”
Therefore, the June 4 riot made us realize that we must combine
economic development with preparation for war and leading the people
to go out! Therefore, since then, our national defence policy has
taken a 180 degree turn and we have since emphasized more and more
“combining peace and war.” Our economic development is all about
preparing for the needs of war! Publicly we still emphasize economic
development as our center, but in reality, economic development has
war as its center! We have made a tremendous effort to construct “The
Great Wall Project” to build up, along our coastal and land frontiers
as well as around large and medium-sized cities, a solid underground
“Great Wall” that can withstand a nuclear war. We are also storing all
necessary war materials. Therefore, we will not hesitate to fight a
Third World War, so as to lead the people to go out and to ensure the
Party’s leadership position. In any event, we, the CCP, will never
step down from the stage of history! We’d rather have the whole world,
or even the entire globe, share life and death with us than step down
from the stage of history! Isn’t there a “nuclear bondage” theory? It
means that since nuclear wepaons have bound the security of the entire
world, all will die together if death is inevitable. In my view, there
is another kind of bondage, and that is, the fate of our Party is tied
up with that of the whole world. If we, the CCP, are finished, China
will be finished, and the world will be finished.

Our Party’s historical mission is to lead the Chinese people to go
out. If we take the long view, we will see that history led us on this
path. First, China’s long history has resulted in the world’s largest
population, including Chinese in China as well as overseas. Second,
once we open our doors, the profit-seeking western capitalists will
invest capital and technology in China to assist our development, so
that they can occupy the biggest market in the world. Third, our
numerous overseas Chinese help us create the most favorable
environment for the introduction of foreign capital, foreign
technology, and advanced experience into China. Thus, it is guaranteed
that our reform and open-door policy will achieve tremendous
success. Fourth, China’s great economic expansion will inevitably lead
to the shrinkage of per-capita living space for the Chinese people,
and this will encourage China to turn outward in search for new living
space. Fifth, China’s great economic expansion will inevitably come
with significant development in our military forces, creating
conditions for our expansion overseas. Ever since Napoleon’s time, the
West has been alert for the possible awakening of the sleeping lion
that is China. Now, the sleeping lion is standing up and advancing
into the world, and has become unstoppable!

What is the third issue we should clinch firmly in order to accomplish
our historical mission of national renaissance? It is to hold firmly
onto the big “issue of America.”

This appears to be shocking, but the logic is actually very simple.

Comrade He Xin put forward a very fundamental judgment that is very
reasonable. He asserted in his report to the Party Central Committee:
The renaissance of China is in fundamental conflict with the Western
strategic interest, and therefore will inevitably be obstructed by the
western countries doing everything they can. So, Only by breaking the
blockade formed by the western countries headed by the United States
can China grow and move toward the world!

Would the United States allow us to go out to gain new living space?
First, if the United States is firm in blocking us, it is hard for us
to do anything significant to Taiwan, Vietnam, India, or even Japan,
[so] how much more living space can we get? Very trivial! Only
countries like the United States, Canada and Australia have the vast
land to serve our need for mass colonization.

Therefore, solving the “issue of America” is the key to solving all
other issues. First, this makes it possible for us to have many people
migrate there and even establish another China under the same
leadership of the CCP. America was originally discovered by the
ancestors of the yellow race, but Columbus gave credit to the white
race. We the descendants of the Chinese nation are entitled to the
possession of the land! It is said that the residents of the yellow
race have a very low social status in the United States. We need to
liberate them. Second, after solving the “issue of America,” the
western countries of Europe would bow to us, not to mention Taiwan,
Japan and other small countries. Therefore, solving the “issue of
America” is the mission assigned to the CCP members by history.

I sometimes think how cruel it is for China and the United States to
be enemies that are bound to meet on a narrow road! Do you remember a
movie about Liberation Army Troops led by Liu Bocheng and Deng
Xiaoping? The title is something like “Decisive Battle on the Central
Plains.” There is a famous remark in the movie that is full of power
and grandeur: “The enemies are bound to meet on a narrow road, only
the brave will win!” It is this kind of fighting to win or die spirit
that enabled us to seize power in Mainland China. It is historical
destiny that China and the United States will come to unavoidable
confrontation on a narrow path and fight each other! The United
States, unlike Russia and Japan, has never occupied and hurt China,
and also assisted China in its battle against the Japanese. But, it
will certainly be an obstruction, and the biggest obstruction! In the
long run, the relationship of China and the United States is one of a
life-and-death struggle.

One time, some Americans came to visit and tried to convince us that
the relationship between China and the United States is one of
interdependence. Comrade Xiaoping replied in a polite manner: “Go tell
your government, China and the United States do not have such a
relationship that is interdependent and mutually reliant.” Actually,
Comrade Xiaoping was being too polite, he could have been more frank,
“The relationship between China and the United States is one of
life-and-death struggle.” Of course, right now it is not the time to
openly break up with them yet. Our reform and opening to the outside
world still rely on their capital and technology, we still need
America. Therefore, we must do everything we can to promote our
relationship with America, learn from America in all aspects and use
America as an example to reconstruct our country.

How have we managed our foreign affairs in these years? Even if we had
to put on a smiling face in order to please them, even if we have to
give them the right cheek after they had hit our left cheek, we still
must endure in order to further our relationship with the United
States. Do you remember the character of Wuxun in the movie the “Story
of Wuxun”? In order to accomplish his mission, he endured so much pain
and suffered so much beating and kicking! The United States is the
most successful country in the world today. Only after we have learned
all of its useful experiences can we replace it in the future. Even
though we are presently imitating the American tone “China and the
United States rely on each other and share honor and disgrace,” we
must not forget that the history of our civilization repeatedly has
taught us that one mountain does not allow two tigers to live
together.

We also must never forget what Comrade Xiaoping emphasized: “Refrain
from revealing ambitions and put others off the track.” The hidden
message is: we must put up with America; we must conceal our ultimate
goals, hide our capabilities, and await the opportunity. In this way,
our mind is clear. Why have we not updated our national anthem with
something peaceful? Why did we not change the anthem’s theme of war?
Instead, when revising the Constitution this time, for the first time
we clearly specified “March of the Volunteers” is our national
anthem. Thus we will understand why we constantly talk loudly about
the “Taiwan issue” but not the “American issue.” We all know the
principle of “doing one thing under the cover of another.” If ordinary
people can only see the small island of Taiwan in their eyes, then you
as the elite of our country should be able to see the whole picture of
our cause. Over these years, according to Comrade Xiaoping’s
arrangement, a large piece of our territory in the North has been
given up to Russia; do you really think our Party Committee is a fool?

To resolve the issue of America we must be able to transcend
conventions and restrictions. In history, when a country defeated
another country or occupied another country, it could not kill all the
people in the conquered land because back then you could not kill
people effectively with sabers or long spears, or even with rifles or
machine guns. Therefore, it was impossible to gain a stretch of land
without keeping the people on that land. However, if we conquered
America in this fashion, we would not be able to make many people
migrate there.

Only by using special means to “clean up” America will we be able to
lead the Chinese people there. This is the only choice left for
us. This is not a matter of whether we are willing to do it or
not. What kind of special means is there available for us to “clean up
America”?

Conventional weapons such as fighters, canons, missiles and
battleships won’t do; neither will highly destructive weapons such as
nuclear weapons. We are not as foolish as to want to perish together
with America by using nuclear weapons, despite the fact that we have
been exclaiming that we will have the Taiwan issue resolved at
whatever cost. Only by using non-destructive weapons that can kill
many people will we be able to reserve America for ourselves. There
has been rapid development of modern biological technology, and new
bio-weapons have been invented one after another. Of course, we have
not been idle, in the past years we have seized the opportunity to
master weapons of this kind. We are capable of achieving our purpose
of “cleaning up” America all of a sudden. When Comrade Xiaoping was
still with us, the Party Central Committee had the perspicacity to
make the right decision not to develop aircraft carrier groups and
focus instead on developing lethal weapons that can eliminate mass
populations of the enemy country.

From a humanitarian perspective, we should issue a warning to the
American people and persuade them to leave America and leave the land
they have lived in to the Chinese people. Or at least they should
leave half of the United States to be China’s colony, because America
was first discovered by the Chinese. But would this work? If this
strategy does not work, then there is only one choice left to us. That
is, use decisive means to “clean up” America and reserve America for
our use in a moment. Our historical experience has proven that as long
as we make it happen, nobody in the world can do anything about
us. Furthermore, if the United States as the leader is gone, then
other enemies have to surrender to us.

Biological weapons are unprecedented in their ruthlessness, but if the
Americans do not die then the Chinese have to die. If the Chinese
people are strapped to the present land, a total societal collapse is
bound to take place. According to the computation of the author of
Yellow Peril, more than half of the Chinese will die, and that figure
would be more than 800 million people! Just after the liberation, our
yellow land supported nearly 500 million people, while today the
official figure of the population is more than 1.3 billion. This
yellow land has reached the limit of its capacity. One day, who knows
how soon it will come, the great collapse will occur any time and more
than half the population will have to go.

We must prepare ourselves for two scenarios. If our biological weapons
succeed in the surprise attack, the Chinese people will be able to
keep their losses at a minimum in the fight against the United
States. If, however, the attack fails and triggers a nuclear
retaliation from the United States, China would perhaps suffer a
catastrophe in which more than half of its population would
perish. That is why we need to be ready with air defense systems for
our big and medium-sized cities. Whatever the case may be, we can only
move forward fearlessly, for the sake of our Party and State and our
nation’s future, regardless of the hardships we have to face and the
sacrifices we have to make. The population, even if more than half
dies, can be reproduced. But if the Party falls, everything is gone,
and forever gone.

In Chinese history, in the replacement of dynasties, the ruthless have
always won and the benevolent have always failed. The most typical
example involved Xiang Yu the King of Chu, who, after defeating Liu
Bang, failed to continue to chase after him and eliminate his forces,
and his leniency resulted in Xiang Yu’s death and Liu’s victory
…. Therefore, we must emphasize the importance of adopting resolute
measures. In the future, the two rivals, China and the United States,
will eventually meet each other in a narrow road, and our leniency to
the Americans will mean cruelty toward the Chinese people. Here some
people may want to ask me: What about the several millions of our
compatriots in the United States? They may ask: aren’t we against
Chinese killing other Chinese?

These comrades are too pedantic; they are not pragmatic enough. If we
had insisted on the principle that the Chinese should not kill other
Chinese, would we have liberated China? As for the several million
Chinese living in the United States, this is of course a big
issue. Therefore, in recent years, we have been conducting research on
genetic weapons, i.e., those weapons that do not kill yellow
people. But producing a result with this kind of research is extremely
difficult.

Of the research done on genetic weapons throughout the world, Israel
is the most advanced. Their genetic weapons are designed to target
Arabs and protect the Israelis. But even they have not reached the
stage of actual deployment. We have cooperated with Israel on some
research. Perhaps we can introduce some of the technologies used to
protect Israelis and remold these technologies to protect the yellow
people. But their technologies are not mature yet, and it is difficult
for us to surpass them in a few years. If it has to be five or ten
years before some breakthrough can be achieved in genetic weapons, we
cannot afford to wait any longer.

Old comrades like us cannot afford to wait that long, for we don’t
have that much time to live. Old soldiers of my age may be able to
wait for five or ten more years, but those from the period of the
anti-Japanese War or the few old Red Army soldiers cannot wait any
longer.

Therefore, we have to give up our expectations about genetic
weapons. Of course, from another perspective, the majority of those
Chinese living in the United States have become our burden, because
they have been corrupted by the bourgeois liberal values for a long
time and it would be difficult for them to accept our Party’s
leadership. If they survived the war, we would have to launch
campaigns in the future to deal with them, to reform them. Do you
still remember that when we had just defeated the Koumintang (KMT) and
liberated Mainland China, so many people from the bourgeois class and
intellectuals welcomed us so very warmly, but later we had to launch
campaigns such as the “suppression of the reactionaries” and
“Anti-Rightist Movement” to clean them up and reform them? Some of
them were in hiding for a long time and were not exposed until the
Cultural Revolution. History has proved that any social turmoil is
likely to involve many deaths.

Maybe we can put it this way: death is the engine that moves history
forward. During the period of the three kingdoms, how many people
died? When Genghis Khan conquered Eurasia, how many people died? When
Manchu invaded the interior of China, how many people died? Not many
people died during the 1911 Revolution, but when we overthrew the
Three Great Mountains, and during the political campaigns such as
“suppression of the reactionaries,” “Three-Anti-Campaign,” and
“Five-Anti-Campaign,” at least 20 million people died. We were
apprehensive that some young people today would be trembling with fear
when they hear about wars and people dying.

During wartime, we were used to seeing dead people. Blood and flesh
were flying everywhere, corpses were lying in heaps on the fields, and
blood ran like rivers. We saw it all. On the battlefields, everybody’s
eyes turned red with killing because it was a life-and-death struggle
and only the brave would survive.

It is indeed brutal to kill one or two hundred million Americans. But
that is the only path that will secure a Chinese century in which the
CCP leads the world. We, as revolutionary humanitarians, do not want
deaths. But if history confronts us with a choice between deaths of
Chinese and those of Americans, we’d have to pick the latter, as, for
us, it is more important to safeguard the lives of the Chinese people
and the life of our Party. That is because, after all, we are Chinese
and members of the CCP. Since the day we joined the CCP, the Party,
life has always been above all else! History will prove that we made
the right choice.

Now, when I am about to finish my speech, you probably understand why
we wanted to know, whether the people would rise against us if one day
we secretly adopt resolute means to “clean up” America. For over
twenty years, China has been enjoying peace, and a whole generation
has not been tested by war. In particular, since the end of World War
II, there have been many changes in the formats of war, the concept of
war and the ethics of war. Especially since the collapse of the former
Soviet Union and Eastern European Communist states, the ideology of
the West has come to dominate the world as a whole, and the Western
theory of human nature and western view of human rights have
increasingly been disseminated among the young people in
China. Therefore, we were not very sure about the people’s
attitude. If our people are fundamentally opposed to “cleaning up”
America, we will, of course, have to adopt corresponding measures.

Why didn’t we conduct the survey through administrative means instead
of through the web? We did what we did for a good reason.

First of all, we did it to reduce artificial inference and to make
sure that we got the true thoughts of the people. In addition, it is
more confidential and won’t reveal the true purpose of our survey. But
what is most important is the fact that most of the people who are
able to respond to the questions online are from social groups that
are relatively well-educated and intelligent. They are the hard-core
and leading groups that play a decisive role among our people. If they
support us, then the people as a whole will follow us. If they oppose
us, they will play the dangerous role of inciting people and creating
social disturbance.

What turned out to be very comforting is they did not turn in a blank
test paper. In fact, they turned in a test paper with a score of over
80. This is the excellent fruition of our Party’s work in propaganda
and education over the past few decades.

Of course, a few people under western influence have objected to
shooting at prisoners of war and women and children. Is everybody
crazy? Some others said, “The Chinese love to label themselves as a
peace-loving people, but actually they are the most ruthless
people. The comments are resonant of killing and murdering, sending
chills to my heart.”

Although there are not too many people holding this kind of viewpoint
and they will not affect the overall situation in any significant way,
but we still need to strengthen the propaganda to respond to this kind
of argument.

That is to vigorously propagate Comrade He Xin’s latest article, which
has already been reported to the central government. You may look it
up on the website.

If you get on the website using key words to search, you will find out
that a while ago comrade He Xin pointed out to the Hong Kong Business
News during an interview that: “The U.S. has a shocking conspiracy.”
According to what he had in hand, from September 27 to October 1,
1995, the Mikhail Sergeevich Gorbachev Foundation, funded by the
United States, gathered 500 of the world’s most important statesmen,
economic leaders and scientists, including George W. Bush (he was not
the U.S. president at the time), the Baroness Thatcher, Tony Blair,
Zbigniew Brzezinski, as well as George Soros, Bill Gates, futurist
John Naisbitt, etc., all of the world’s most popular characters, in
the San Francisco Fairmont hotel for a high-level roundtable
conference, discussing problems about globalization and how to guide
humanity to move forward into the 21st century. According to what He
Xin had in hand, the outstanding people of the world in attendance
thought that in the 21st century a mere 20 percent of the world’s
population will be sufficient to maintain the world’s economy and
prosperity, the other 80 percent or 4/5ths of the world’s population
will be human garbage unable to produce new values. The people in
attendance thought that this excess 80 percent population would be a
trash population and “high-tech” means should be used to eliminate
them gradually.

Since the enemies are secretly planning to eliminate our population,
we certainly cannot be infinitely merciful and compassionate to
them. Comrade He Xin’s article came out at the right time, it has
proven the correctness of our tit for tat battle approach ... [and]
Comrade Deng Xiaoping’s great foresight to deploy against the United
States military strategy.

Certainly, in spreading Comrade He Xin’s views, we cannot publish the
article in the Party newspapers, in order to avoid raising the enemy’s
vigilance. He Xin’s conversation may remind the enemy that we have
grasped the modern science and technology, including “clean” nuclear
technology as well as biological weapons technology, and we can use
powerful measures to eliminate their population on a large scale.

The last problem I want to talk about is of firmly seizing the
preparations for military battle.

Currently, we are at the crossroad of moving forward or backward. Some
comrades saw problems flooding everywhere in our country – the
corruption problem, the state-owned enterprise problem, the bank’s bad
accounts problem, environmental problems, society security problems,
education problems, the AIDS problem, various appeals problems, even
the riots problem. These comrades vacillated in the determination to
prepare for military battles. They thought: they should first grab the
political reform problem, that is, our own political reform comes
first. After resolving the domestic problems, we can then deal with
the foreign military battle problem.

This reminds me of the crucial period in 1948 in the Chinese
Revolution. At that time the People’s Liberation Army’s “horses were
drinking water” in the Yangtze River, but they faced extremely complex
situations and difficult problems everywhere in the liberated areas,
and the central authority received emergency reports daily. What to
do? Should we stop to manage rear areas and internal matters first
before moving forward, or press on to pass the Yangtze River with one
vigorous effort? Chairman Mao, with his extraordinary wisdom and
mettle gave the marching order “Carry on the revolution to the end,”
and liberated all of China. The previously thought “serious”
conflicting problems were all resolved in this great forward moving
revolutionary wave.

Now, it seems like we are in the same critical period as the “horses
were drinking water” in the Yangtze River days in the revolutionary
era, as long as we resolve the United States problem at one blow, our
domestic problems will all be readily solved. Therefore, our military
battle preparation appears to aim at Taiwan but in fact is aimed at
the United States, and the preparation is far beyond the scope of
attacking aircraft carriers or satellites.

Marxism pointed out that violence is the midwife for the birth of
China’s century. As war approaches, I am full of hope for our next
generation.

[Epoch Times, August 1st] At the time when it came back to light, the
CCP threw its doomsday crazy gambling plan, which it had planned for
many years to hide its power and bide its time, on the Internet in the
form of speeches. This speech is composed of "war is coming to us"
(see attachment one) and "war is not far from us, it is the midwife of
the Chinese century" (see attachment two). It can be echoed from the
context and the logical coherence of the theme. It is determined that
the two articles are indeed sister articles.

The two speeches comprehensively and systematically described in
detail the CCP’s shudder and helplessness towards death, as well as
its unwillingness to perish and desperate resistance in the past two
decades, from the bleak wind to the severe winter. In particular, the
two speeches were self-confessed in the secret room, naked and
straightforward. They are a rare confession of the evil spirits for
the world to truly understand the evil nature of the CCP in canned
food. After reading this self-confession, the CCP's thoughts and words
and deeds are insightful!

In short, the two speeches are worthy of the author's comment and the
reader's reading.

1. Steel-headed gangsters bet on the world, global villagers are like weeds

So, what core content does this doomsday crazy gambling plan contain?
In a nutshell: trapped beasts still fight, survive from the dead, and
decisively fight humans. If you don’t believe it, please listen to
some of the devil’s aspirations from the speech:

1) We have to prepare with both hands. If the biological weapon
attack succeeds, the Chinese people will pay the least sacrifice
in the struggle against the United States. However, if it fails to
trigger US nuclear retaliation, China may suffer a disaster of
losing more than half of its population, so we must prepare for
air defense in large and medium-sized cities. But anyway, for the
future of the party, the country and the nation, we can only go
forward boldly! No matter how many difficulties and obstacles
there are, no matter how much sacrifices are made! Even if more
than half of the population is dead, it can regenerate, but if the
Communist Party collapses, everything is over! It's over forever!

2) In any case, the Chinese Communist Party will not withdraw from
the stage of history! We would rather want this whole world and
even the whole earth to coexist and die with our party than to
withdraw from the stage of history! ! ! Isn't there a "nuclear
bundling" theory now? In other words, nuclear weapons bind the
security of the entire world together, and everyone will die
together. I think there is actually another kind of bondage, that
is, the fate of our party is tied to the fate of the entire
world. If our Communist Party is over, China will be over, and the
world will be over.

3) It is indeed cruel to kill the United States with one or two
hundred million people, but only this way can be exchanged for the
century of the Chinese and the century of the Chinese Communist
Party leading the world. We do not want dead people, we are
revolutionary humanitarians. But if history requires us to choose:
is it dead Chinese or dead American? Is it important to preserve
the lives of hundreds of millions of Chinese people or to preserve
the lives of our party? We can only choose the latter. Why do we
call us Chinese? Who told us to be Communists? From the day we
joined the party, the life of the party is above all else!

Since the party’s life is “above everything”, it will continue to live
for the CCP, and it will not hesitate to use biochemical and nuclear
weapons for a desperate battle, it is not surprising! Regarding human
life as grass, even if 200 million Americans are killed and 700 to 800
million Chinese are lost, it is not a problem! Abandoning the world in
disregard of safety, even if the whole world bet on a gamble, it is
within the CCP’s sense of reason! The speech tore away all the
disguise, and let the world see a naked CCP: blood clogged in every
pore, evil in every cell, it wants to survive from death and fight
against humanity. This is the theme of the speech.

This theme can be described as extremely vicious and rascal. We have
indeed seen steel-headed beggars who cut meat with knives and pierced
their throats to threaten donors with rewards; but who have ever seen
steel-headed hooligans who wield biochemical nuclear weapons and
threaten the world "to die with you"? Not long ago, in the article
"The Doomsday Feelings of the Bloody Company", the author used the
bloody company to accuse the CCP for the first time. In any case, the
bloody confession confirmed the blood of the confessor: a fierce demon
who slaughtered 80 million descendants of Yanhuang and Huang, when the
time of death was approaching, actually had to take a billion lives as
a hostage as a bet and gamble. Let me ask: Can you find a more apt
vocabulary to describe this bloodthirsty monster than "Bloody
Company"?

As we all know, the Gongshi Blood Company is a conspiracy group
sealing system, and this time it actively leaked core secrets, which
is really extraordinary. People have to ask: What is the purpose of
Gongji Bloody Company's plan to throw a doomsday crazy bet? The answer
is: three birds with one stone in the speech, which is intended to:

1) To express the determination of "The sky cannot be buried, and the
ground cannot be buried" of Gongji Bloody Company (quoted from
"Speech" in Chinese). However, the one who claims that the heaven and
the earth cannot be buried is not against the forces of the universe?

2) Facing the "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party", it was a
chill, and there was an urgent need to calcify the soft egg image.

3) Raising wars, advocating violence, and creating public opinion for
a decisive battle against mankind.

So strictly speaking, what was thrown by Gongji Bloody Company was not
so much a probing balloon, but rather a life-saving straw.

Of course, the way of throwing takes a lot of effort. The speech is
chopped off, and the characters, time, place, and background related
to the speech are all hidden, which has become Jia Yucun's
language. Can be guessed, can be imagined, clouds cover the fog, and
utterly confused, but unable to sit down, aiming to create a kind of
illusory realm. All in all, if you take the measure to the point where
it is difficult to tell the truth from the fake, you will be
suspicious, and the speech will come out like this!

2. Where to find the antidote for lies


2. Where to find the antidote for lies

However, since this speech is completely beyond the imagination of the
normal minded, it is hard for people to imagine that there will be
great evil in the world. They would rather "impossible!"
"untrustworthy!" At least, with the help of negation to obtain a sense
of psychological security. A friend of mine actually sent a
masterpiece by the CCP's imperial literati: On the peaceful rise, the
postscript contains a lesson: This represents the current mainstream
of CCP thought! Probably the meaning is still not exhausted, and at
the end I added another sentence: There is now a small anti-China
wave, which means that I must be careful.

It seems that the serious answer to the question of the authenticity
of the speech, that is, does the speech represent the mainstream
ideology of the bloody company, its aspirations, and its doomsday
crazy betting plan? Can not be avoided. Otherwise, all articles
exposing the speech will become untargeted, declaring war on the
windmill; and in the beautiful imagination of good people, the CCP has
become a fuel-efficient lamp, which will be extinguished peacefully
when the oil is exhausted, and it will not add to humanity. Trouble,
don't cause disaster to the world. If so, then the world is very
lucky, and the common people are very lucky!

However, the founder of Falun Gong said that the CCP and its evil
group "it is bad, it is poison, it is evil, just like the poison, you
call it not poison people, it can’t do it" casually. ? The "Nine
Commentaries" commented that the Communist Party is an anti-cosmic
force, a cult, and a hooligan. Are they joking?

On the other hand, if the answer is yes, it is clear and unmistakable
to prove that the speech is indeed the CCP’s patent, it does represent
the mainstream of CCP’s ideology, and it will surely alert the
world. To be precise, affirming that the speech is true is tantamount
to making the CCP appear to show evil, making the CCP use its
anti-human status to demonstrate the Nine Commentaries and commit its
crimes.

Just like the first episode of Stockholm disease sincerely defending
the criminals who kidnapped them, there are indeed many Chinese who
can't listen to the truth except the lies of the Chinese Communist
Party. They feel safe and physically and mentally when they are held
by the evil in the palm of their hands. They said: No matter how you
say it, it won't be the rise of war! Wait, it's all.

For those who do not believe in evil dogs hurting others, what is a
good way to do it? Do not let the dog bite people, bite blood and
blood, let's conduct destructive tests; but you may as well let the
dog jump and make noises to watch and watch. To be precise: if the
good people persuade the good to fail, you might as well make the evil
one declare evil. What's more, lies are poisonous. For those who
suffer from severe lie, persistent high fever, and torrential
delirium, the medicine must be used to dissolve the lie to see
miraculous effects.

Isn't it as bad as the "Nine Commentaries" said? ! Have you really
changed the evil and changed the good? Has the gold box washed your
hands? ! Don’t you see: The bloody company is here to treat the lie of
the Dongguo clan with a unique antidote to the lie! You must know:
Lies are the only antidote to lies in the world!

The unique antidote can make the lie patients' hallucinations of lies
disappear. As soon as they fall from the clouds to the ground, I
believe they will be able to wake up more than half of them. Then
invite them to watch a modern drama of "New Dongguo Stories": taking
advantage of the Dongguo clan to talk about "wolves" At the time when
the nature is good, the bloody company Communist Wolf has quietly held
all the Chinese people hostage, and comfortably bound them on the
human flesh bomb! In this critical season of survival, even if it is
better than Dongguo, you should not regard the meat bomb as a
beautiful hall, and let the combustion detonator be a pleasure! As a
result, the big dream first woke up, dripping with cold sweat, Huo
Suihe healed. It is:

Where to find the antidote for lies? The trouble should end it.

Wonderful, antidote to lies!

3. The intention of the evil spirits is not in the platform, but the
trapped beasts get out of trouble.



Based on the above reasons, making a convincing identification and
demonstration of the authenticity of the speech has become the focus
and theme of this article. The author does not dare to pretend to
prove everyone, but from the old base, the situation is clear, and the
self-confidence analysis of the CCP is still 80% sure. Moreover, I
believe that I begin with the first, and there must be some masters
who will continue to follow.



Looking at the speech in isolation, from the use of words and
sentences to the logic of thinking, the author’s understanding of the
party culture represented by Mao, Deng, Jiang, and Hu is permeated
everywhere, mixed with the upstarts of Nazi theory and the communist
fascist lunatic preaching, Feel free to use it at will. It comes from
the heart of a wolf and does not go beyond the rules of the evil
party. It can be achieved by non-parrot learners and Handan toddlers
day and night.

For example, if you quote Mao in your speech about leading the allies
to victory and benefiting them, they will support you and defend the
Three Representatives, and you will win the CCP’s rogue culture.

For another example, "Even if more than half of the population is
dead, it can still regenerate, but if the Communist Party collapses,
everything will be over! It will be over forever!" This paragraph of
speech is related to Mao Zedong's death of half of the Chinese who
fought a nuclear war, leaving 300 million. People’s remarks about
building communism ignore the brutality of life, how similar they are!
It's just that in the Mao era, there is no such eagerness to truly
feel the imminent collapse of the death period!

Someone might think: You can't infer that the words in the speech are
true just because Mao let go of similar words. Fortunately, at this
juncture, Professor Zhu Chenghu, the dean of the School of Defense of
the National Defense University, jumped out and declared to the world
with a high decibel: The speech systematically tells the bloody
company's heart, and the dying CCP is even more fierce than the Maoist
CCP. My own person, Zhu Chenghu His speech is a footnote! He
threatened: If the United States intervenes in the war in the Taiwan
Strait, China will first use nuclear weapons, razing hundreds of
American cities to the ground, even if China east of Xi’an is
destroyed. In his internal speech, he even broke out: The CCP wants to
store nuclear bombs and destroy more than half of humanity; everyone
is afraid of death and hopes that others will die. Fortunately,
nuclear defenses have been dug in western China. Once the CCP plans to
launch a nuclear attack, the top CCP can hide, and so on.

Professor Zhu is so cute! He faced too many unrealistic fantasies of
the world, and brightened the trump card of the bloody company,
confirming that the speech was absolutely true. He taught every
citizen of the global village to be in danger and not forget that
bloodthirsty monsters are grinding their teeth; he taught politicians
and entrepreneurs in Western society that they cannot forget the
benefits and exchange blood for the golden sand in the teeth of the
beasts. , Harm others, harm yourself, and cause harm to the
world. Every citizen of the global village must always remember:

1) Without the authorization and instruction of the bloody company's
board of directors, a terminal general would never dare to speak out.

2) Zhu's "razing to the ground" is the same as the "disabling the
United States" and "clearing the United States" in his speech. If it
is said that the speech was spoken behind the scenes, floating on the
Internet, and there is no evidence; then, now the military jumped to
the front desk and explained it in the open. Liars who break lies,
such as the "peaceful rise" of lies, "representatives of the interests
of the people", etc., can break without attack!

3) The razing to the east of Xi'an and hundreds of American cities,
and turning one billion people in China and the United States into
nuclear dust, is the specific interpretation and image expression of
the party’s life above all else in the speech. Both are cruel. It is
in the same line as the madness.

4) In order to unify one Taiwan, the east of Xi'an will be flattened
at all costs. What is the meaning of unification? It can be seen that
today's call for reunification of Taiwan is just an excuse: the evil
spirits are not in Taiwan, and they care about the escape of trapped
beasts! To be more precise, one billion creatures are used as
medicine, and a potion of life-renewing soup is tortured to bring back
an evil spirit from the dead.

Indeed, beside the trapped animal cage, how can you allow others to
breathe freely? For democratic Taiwan, the bones have long been in the
throat, and I don’t want to end up with it all the time. However, to
this day, a single-ended loss of Taiwan, honestly can not save lives
in danger!

The eagerness of this performance is eloquent, and it fully reflects
the CCP's knowledge that it will soon be alive, and that it will
collapse when it is said to be broken. Zhu's speech itself is a signal
that the pace of mankind is speeding up in the decisive battle, and
the world must not take it lightly. In the game of decisive battle
against mankind, Taiwan is at best a spare fuse in the hands of the
CCP to detonate the earth at any moment of danger. This is the real
purpose of passing the "Anti-Secession Law."

Not only is poetry and painting like people, but language is also
holographic. Fundamentally speaking, the good cannot look like the
wicked after all, and the clever imitation can only resemble at best!
vice versa. To put it more thoroughly, the second evil cannot even be
the most evil. Let me ask: In human history, from the tyrant Nero to
Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo Hideki, who would dare to talk like this?
Believe that it is none other than the CCP!

Fourth, the best prognostic magic formula for moral resolution of tumor king

However, the author believes that it is easy to dissect the speech in
isolation, but it is inevitable that there will be regrets of
lameness, and it is difficult to convince people. The best way is to
place the speech in the big pattern of the black and white world of
the Spring and Autumn Romance of the Global Village, linking the CCP’s
wolf nature with its dangerous situation, and the countermeasures it
is forced to make under this situation, the authenticity of the speech
can be determined. Sentence!

So, what is the big picture and the big situation of the black and
white world of the Spring and Autumn Romance of the Global Village? In
fact, as far as the CCP is concerned, it has indeed reached the
historical juncture of life and death.

The layman sees the excitement and the insider looks at the
doorway. Don’t think that Uncle Sam is really careless, like the
gentlemen of Western Europe, who is as wise and stunned as the
politicians of Western Europe, like the politician Song and the son of
Lian, who "cannot give a hundred miles of life, and care for three
feet of orphans"; don’t think The United States really doesn't know:
In this world, who is the real source of disaster in this world, and
who is the well-deserved axis of evil? Who is the father of terrorism
and the hardcore backstage? And, which big gangster used Pakistan to
spread nuclear weapons to the little gangsters North Korea, Iran, and
Libya? Which big witch is it who supports to encourage the little
demons like Kim Jong Il, Bin Laden, and Saddam to live in front of the
stage in order to gain time to develop weapons of mass murder
(especially biological and chemical weapons) behind the scenes?

In fact, after being baptized in the fight against terrorism, Bush
knew that the weapon against the CCP was not a military confrontation
but the spread of the idea of ​​freedom. Therefore, while losing no time
to complete the adjustment of the global military strategy, it issued
a declaration of freedom for the 21st century: The United States of
America realizes that national security is closely related to the
success or failure of world democracy; world peace depends on the
progress of the cause of world freedom. This 17-minute declaration of
freedom, which used the word "freedom" 27 times, sounded the death
knell to completely bury the autocratic dictatorship in human history,
and destroyed the surging tide of world democracy. Vibrant Velvet
Revolution Color Revolution Colors are popping up all the
time. Including the Purple Revolution in Iraq, the Rose Revolution in
Georgia, the Orange Revolution in Ukraine, the Tulip Revolution in
Gilstein, and the Cedar Revolution in Lebanon, etc.

Physical injury to its kind, death of lips and cold teeth. Even Liu
Yazhou, who is a bit brainy and a role in the CCP's princeling party,
stunned and exclaimed: What is really terrifying is not the United
States using Afghanistan's counter-terrorism to inflict a knife in the
back (Central Asia), but the wave of democratization surging the
surrounding area. The tide of democracy is like the morning sun and
the spring water melts into the ice. It is terrible, but it is not the
CCP’s most feared.

It covers the body with armor, and the diseased bones are
separated. Famous doctors are helpless, and medicine stones are hard
to cast. It is neither a donkey nor a horse, nor is it ridiculous.

It has lost ground and destructed itself. Sowing evil and making lies
is boundless. Morality is lost, there is no way and no heaven.

It has a beautiful face, rotten on the inside and rotten on the
outside. Blood sucking cloth poison, abducting and lure. Ready to
move, threatening humanity.

The flowers fell helplessly, and I couldn't bear to look back at the
nightmare! The beautiful soap bubbles that have boasted for more than
80 years have turned into daydreams; the revolutionary crabs that have
been clamoring for more than 80 years are originally a series of debt
collection talisman; Wei Guangzheng has been fabricated for more than
80 years. The history of the wicked party eventually turned into a
sentence of crimes in a moral court on earth. It is:

You get melons when you grow melons, and beans when you grow beans;

In a word, it’s time to reap the evil results

Readers, princes, please pay attention to an important fact: all
tyrants in ancient and modern times, both at home and abroad, at best
trample on morals with their evil deeds and corrupt the ethics. Only
the CCP has openly committed to destroying morals. As a result, the
CCP was deeply trapped in a moral crisis. However, the clever and
self-defeating CCP has carefully weighed:

1) To counter morality with evil, don't moths fight the fire and kill themselves?

2) Where does Ercao place himself if it is not in harmony with morality?

3) Take a step back and say that the CCP can be satisfied. Is this
world of human beings still the world of human beings? !

Therefore, it was destined from the very beginning that the CCP was
destined to run out of ammunition and food. Today, this evil iceberg
swears to live and die with the sun, even if it dissolves completely,
it will not change its original intention. Gao Rongrong, a young woman
who was disfigured by a panic and was chased by a panic, is a
testament to the CCP's unrepentance.

Thanks to the "Nine Commentaries", which awakened the world from a
high degree of moral conscience and fundamentally deciphered the
anti-human and anti-moral ghost culture of the CCP, the CCP's evil and
absurdity were exposed to broad daylight. Corresponding to the trend
of democratization that is surrounding the outside world, the trend of
quitting the CCP that morally spurns the CCP rushes into the CCP's
heart. In particular, compared with surgical resection, Moral
Digestion, the king of cancer, can normalize pus cells and regenerate
most of the cancer cells. It can minimize normal cell damage and
become the most expensive and best prognostic one. Demon Mind
Method. The subtlety lies in:

1) It's not so much to say that the devil is outside, but the heart is
inside;

2) To be more precise, deny the old self, sublime morals, cast aside
the CCP, and despise monsters behind;

3) To spurn evil is self-salvation, purification of life, and
reconciliation of the prodigal son with God.

Fifth, sell your ancestors and go crazy after giving birth   there is
an article behind the absurdity

In the face of the big black and white world of the Spring and Autumn
Romance of the global village today, it is not difficult for readers
to set themselves up and imagine for the CCP: Where is the CCP's way
out in the embattled on all sides?

In a word, there is no way to escape. If the road to communism was
first buried in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe; then the road to
democracy was blocked by the CCP. The abyss and hell of communism
before, and the court of justice and gallows in the back are a
portrayal of the true situation of the CCP today. To be precise, the
CCP will never come down since the day it rode the communist tiger on
its back!

The overthrow of the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe was undoubtedly a
devastating blow to Deng Xiaoping, who claimed to be orthodox and
communist. He was calm on the surface and panicked inside. Deng
Xiaoping and his 1989 military suppression group, who had tossed their
lives for communism and awakened from their dreams in the twilight
years, were no longer concerned with the destruction of their careers
(which had already been destroyed!), but when the regime was
over. Once the regime collapsed, they must be sinners through the
ages. The fate of the CCP, the CCP’s blood debt, and their fate, their
blood debt are the same thing now!

After the harvest of Yanmenqiu and Zhao, this feather fan said "Stop
arguing", "Development is the last word", "cross the river by feeling
the stones", "I am the son of the people", etc. After the black words,
soft words, and nice words, he closed his mouth and began to hide his
powers. For the CCP, the trapped beast with sharp teeth, sharp claws
and broken bones, devised a doomsday crazy gambling plan of "the
trapped beasts still fight, survive from the dead, and decisively
fight against mankind". After doing three things, he hurriedly left
the world and went to see Marx at the gate of inanimate:

1) Close close and long distance attack, decisive battle against the United States.

For this purpose, we will not hesitate to sell our land
privately. Now, with the signature and custody of Jiang Hu, nearly
fifty northern territories of Taiwan have been given away. It is
difficult for people to understand: The CCP is notorious for killing
people and arson. Now it is willing to risk the world's disgrace when
it perishes. It is doing traitorous activities and embarrassing Shi
Jingtang and making Yuan Shikai fall behind. Wouldn't it be crazy? !
This incident seems extremely absurd, but it is unspeakable; on the
surface, it looks like a gambler who has lost everything.

In today's world, what are the reasons and reasons for the CCP to
betray the ancestor's foundation so resolutely and so aggressively? In
any case, if it is not for life and death, if it is not for a crazy
gamble for life and death, is it worth making such a huge bet? For
example, do you have to post 50 Taiwan when you hit one Taiwan? Or,
wouldn't it be possible to hide Jiang KGB's identity without losing 50
Taiwan?

No! There is only one thing that can be balanced on the same scale
with the selling of fifty Taiwanese: the life and death of the
CCP. When this trapped beast thought about it, he could only solve the
American problem in one fell swoop. The trapped beast immediately
became the king of the world, and the internal and external troubles
disappeared instantly! However, a decisive battle against the United
States is certainly not a matter of talking on paper or a spiritual
meeting. First of all, the tactical taboo of receiving the enemy back
and forth is a very real problem, and I am afraid that the northern
bear will stabbing a knife in the back when the battle is in full
swing. Therefore, it is necessary and necessary to spend a lot of
money to buy the northern bear. Otherwise, how to explain that the CCP
is not busy explaining the funeral when it is dying, but is anxiously
betraying the country and selling land?

What's more, in the eyes of the CCP, if you want to take it, you must
first give it to you. What is given away is fifty Taiwanese, and what
you get is the whole world. What it is doing is this "wishful"
calculation. It is:

There is an article behind the absurdity of selling ancestors after giving birth.

2) Development of biological and chemical weapons of mass destruction.

Counting from the 1990s, it took more than ten years to devote one
country's power to it. It is believed that biological and chemical
weapons have been in the grasp of the CCP. In his speech, "clearing
the scene with non-destructive weapons of mass murder" against the
United States was by no means intimidating; a while ago, police
officers and angry youths on the Internet were also clamoring: "Clear
Taiwan", "it is necessary for the place of Taiwan." "It means killing
all the Taiwanese in order to make room. It doesn't seem to be
groundless.

The kind people who have lost memory of the CCP’s history often
wishfully believe that the CCP is a vegetarian, and do not believe
that it dares to violate international conventions and minimum
humanitarian standards by developing and producing large-scale modern
killing weapons. However, don't forget how Tiananmen Square was
cleared in 1989! On this democratic sacred land in the minds of the
Chinese people, the CCP meticulously planned a streamlined killing
method, mass shooting with flowering bombs, burning corpses with
gasoline, and lifting ashes by helicopters, evaporating national
elites without a trace. Then solemnly declared that there was not a
single student dead at Tiananmen Square, except for the twenty-three
soldiers! What is the bottom line of the CCP's morality? Is the
Chinese Communist Party a vegetarian?

Moreover, a bin Laden who occupies the mountain can challenge the
United States to destroy the World Trade Center. How can he take the
national terrorism king who is in the hands of nuclear weapons,
biochemical and chemical weapons lightly? Not to mention anything
else, just use a civilian flight to sprinkle the colorless and
transparent biological poison silently within a few days, and you will
not be able to eat it.

In a word, how can the world sleep lightly when dealing with steel-headed hooligans?

3) Establish an extraordinary power structure during the dying period.

In view of the lessons learned from Gorbachev’s disintegration of the
communist system, the military group’s method of controlling the
center behind the scenes of the 1989 incident, that is, commanding the
party with guns, has become the norm: this group has absolute power to
deal with important military affairs, such as ousting Hu Yaobang and
Zhao Ziyang, but Usually does not interfere with daily affairs. If the
center of the table is the general manager, then the behind-the-scenes
group Deng Xiaoping Liu Huaqing Chi Haotian and his successors are the
true chairman, soul, interests and life representatives of the bloody
company. This kind of extraordinary power structure is tantamount to
adding a piece of insurance to the CCP. At the same time, the board of
directors included various people carefully selected from inside and
outside the party, including princelings such as Zeng Qinghong,
hardcore loyalists, such as Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, who would not
hesitate to stain the top with human blood, as well as the knowledge
scum that specially designed evil to sell themselves.

Jeff Nyquist comments on the speech believed to have been given by Mr. Chi
Haotian, Minster of Defense and vice-chairman of China’s Central Military
Commission.

Transcript of a speech follows below.

Jeff Nyquist comments::

This commentary should be included as part of a chapter in a future
book. We should call this chapter, “Authenticating China’s Strategy”

You suggest (1) that the speech is a hoax. This is entirely possible,
although close analysis tends in another direction. Strategy is my
subject and my life-long study. Believe it or not, it is possible in
strategy to know certain things indirectly, by inference and
analysis. After careful consideration, with regard to the speeches
attributed to General Chi, I think it is unwise to say “we don’t know”
and “it doesn’t matter.” In fact, it’s not impossible to analyze a
document to determine its authenticity. Here is a task entirely within
the reach of a strategic analyst. Furthermore, if the document is
authentic then it matters a great deal; for the enemy’s intentions are
laid bare, with countless implications (and potential war-winning
insights).

When we first encounter an unfamiliar text, we don’t know how to judge
it. We are completely lost, and this is normal. Those who claim to
understand something on first contact are deceiving
themselves. Nothing worth knowing is understood immediately. When I
first read the two speeches attributed to General Chi Haotian my
reaction was to dismiss them as you did. When I read the first
paragraph of the second speech, I rolled my eyes and laughed at what
seemed to be an obvious fraud. At first reading they were not
credible. (This is the same reaction I had to Golitsyn in 1984).

Two years elapsed and, as chance would have it, I was doing some
research on Mao Zedong’s strategic ideas. In this midst of this
research I was stunned by Mao’s determination to build a fleet and
invade North America. I was also struck by the brutality and cynicism
of his statements. I went back and started re-reading Sun Tzu and the
commentaries on Sun Tzu. My mind suddenly drifted back to the two
speeches attributed to General Chi Haotian. On my second reading I
realized these speeches are only incredible from a Western point of
view. From a Chinese strategist’s point of view, these speeches are
consistent with 2,500 years of Chinese history and thought. There is
nothing inauthentic in these two speeches.

If they are a hoax, then a genius produced them. More than that, this
aforesaid genius possesses authentic tidbits of military intelligence
that are not known by the general public — but were revealed to me by
a high-ranking Russian military defector with more than three years
experience in China.

Mao once said that the first Chin emperor was nothing compared with
himself. The first Chin emperor only killed a thousand Confucian
scholars. Mao had killed hundreds of thousands of Confucian
scholars. This was Mao’s boast. Such boasting is unknown to Western
history, except to figures who are dismissed as madmen. One is
reminded of the Chinese warlord whose father was taken prisoner and
held hostage by a rival. In this instance, the rival threatened to
boil the old man alive. The war lord sent his reply: “Save me some of
the soup.” One has to dig through the Dark Ages of Western history to
find anything like it. Or else it is something from the history of
Caligula or Nero or Eliagabulus, who were considered evil madmen —
dreadful failures and misfits. In China such behavior has long been
normalized. The Western ethic, which followed from the hero-worship of
the ancient Greeks and Romans, places nobility as the true standard of
greatness. Chinese civilization places a high premium on realistic
thinking, brutality and success.

This is greatness in the Chinese context.

How does this point argue the authenticity of the alleged speeches of
General Chi?

A person who disagrees with the strategic culture of China, favoring
freedom and humane government, doesn’t possess the mentality needed to
reproduce such a brilliant piece of mimicry. One would have to be a
student of Sun Tzu and the Chin emperor and Mao Zedong, not a student
of Thomas Jefferson or Lincoln. Such a student would not value
freedom, having absorbed a philosophy entirely at odds with Western
culture. More than that, it is a culture that believes in the West’s
weakness and inevitable fall.

If you were going to advance a fraudulent speech by a Chinese
communist leader, would you dare put into his mouth the statement that
Nazi Germany was “too soft”?

Would you dare open your first paragraph with the assertion that you
are pleased that 80 percent of Chinese polled would kill women and
children in a war? Anyone with the sophistication to produce this
document would have avoided going so far, fearing that the reader
would laugh out loud at such an obvious propaganda fraud.

Only a simple person would start Chi’s second speech with that kind of
paragraph, and a simple person did not compose this speech! To make a
credible fraud, you have to downplay the wickedness of the
Communists. You must be subtle in your presentation so that the fraud
has a chance to sound credible. But the Chi speech is not subtle as a
fraudulent presentation would have to be. Instead, it is deep and
profound and brilliant in its totalitarian perspective. The compassion
for the American victims comes late in the second speech, long after
the skeptics would’ve stopped reading it.

I do not know if the speech is genuine. But if I had to lay a bet,
then I’d wager on its authenticity. That is to say, I suspect it is
authentic. And the way to test its authenticity is to see if Chinese
actions are consistent with its program.

There is something more, as well. I know from my discussions with a
Russian defector, that Russia and China agreed to split North America
between them as follows: Russia would get Alaska and parts of Canada,
while China would get the lower 48 states (which contains the best
land). The agreement on this was affirmed by the Russian General Staff
in early 1992. This joint agreement on a future war against America is
the basis for the Sino-Russian alliance. And if you read General Chi’s
speech carefully, you will see that he brilliantly lays out the logic
of the Chinese offensive and their means of advancing. He does not
mention Russia’s role because Party cadres don’t need to know about
Russia’s military contribution. They only need the most general
strategic outline and why the war is necessary.

You must read this speech several times in order to understand its
profound science. If this speech is counterfeit, the counterfeiter
spent many years devising it. In fact, a hoax of this type could only
be produced, as I noted before by a genuis. If General Chi was not the
author, then the author should be a general — and ought to have
General Chi’s job.

In point (2) you mention 9/11. Chi’s speech explains why a false flag
terror attack is necessary in advance of a biological offensive
against the United States. As would be proper, General Chi gives
nothing away. He merely implies that the Americans will not know who
is really attacking them. This is intrinsic to his speech, even though
he doesn’t say a word.

In point (3) you ask if this is good propaganda material against
communism. Since our goal is to understand the enemy, the propaganda
value is of secondary

"It is a document that should make all the leaders of the states that
do business with China think about a mutually beneficial
exchange. This reciprocity is illusory. China is only initiating
actions that benefit it exclusively, the author of the article points
out. Transactional logic, in the “moderate” register practiced by the
Western world, is only a form of adaptation to the opponent's
thinking, a mimicry meant to allow China to enter its
system. Therefore, the article captures with great accuracy the
essence of Chinese strategic thinking contained in General Chi
Haotian's speech. While many commentators credit it as real, without
any analysis, while others decree, both arrogantly and politically
correct, that it is not real, the author of this article manages to
highlight the articulations through which discourse integrates the
traditions of military thinking based on a hybrid strategy with
long-term goals specific to China."

The Strauss and Howe description of Regeneracy and Crisis Era

Post by John »

** World View: The Strauss and Howe description of Regeneracy and Crisis Era

The following text is from the 1990s book The Fourth Turning, by
Strauss and Howe:

** Morphology of crisis eras

Catalyst, regeneracy, climax, resolution.

* A Crisis era begins with a catalyst -- a startling event (or
sequence of events) that produces a sudden shift in mood. p. 256

* Once catalyzed, a society achieves a regeneracy -- a new
counterentropy that reunifies and reenergizes civic life.

* The regenerated society propels toward a climax -- a crucial
moment that confirms the death of the old order and birth of the new.

* The climax culminates in a resolution -- a triumphant or
tragic conclusion that separates the winners from losers, resolves the
big public questions, and establishes the new order. p. 256 ...

Every Fourth Turning starts with a catalyst event that
terminates the mood of Unraveling and unleashes one of Crisis.
Chapter 4 explained how sparks of history -- sudden and startling
events -- can arise in any turning. Some sparks ignite nothing. Some
flare briefly and then extinguish. Some have important effects but
leave the underlying problems unresolved. Others ignite epic
conflagrations. Which ones ignite? Studying the sparks of history
[p. 257] themselves won't help answer this question, because what
they are is far less important than how a society reacts to them.
That reaction is substantially determined by the season of the
saeculum -- in other words, by the turning in which they are located.
Sparks in a High tend to reinforce feelings of security; in an
Awakening, argument; in an Unraveling, anxiety. Come the Fourth
Turning, sparks of history trigger a fierce new dynamic of public
synergy. pp. 256-57

The catalyst can be one spark or, more commonly, a series of sparks
that self-ignite like the firecrackers traditionally used by the
Chinese to mark their own breaks in the circle of time. Each of
these sparks is linked to a specific threat about which the society
had been fully informed but against which it had left itself poorly
protected. Afterward, the fact that these sparks were
foreseeable but poorly foreseen gives rise to a new
sense of urgency about institutional dysfunction and civic
vulnerablity. This marks the beginning of the vertiginous spiral of
Crisis. p. 257

Once this new mood is fully catalyzed, a society begins a process of
regeneracy, a drawing together into whatever definition of
community is available at the time. Out of the debris of the
Unraveling, a new civic ethos arises. One set of post-Awakening
ideals prevails over the others. People stop tolerating the
weakening of institutions, splintering of the culture, and the
individualizing of daily behavior. Spiritual curiosity abates,
manners traditionalize, and the culture is harnessed as propanganda
for the purpose of overtly reinforcing good conduct. History teaches
that, roughly one to three years after the initial catalyst, people
begin acknowledging this new synergy in community life and begin
deputizing government to enforce it. Collective action is now seen
as vital to solving the society's most fundamental problems. p. 257

257: A Crisis mood does not guarantee that the new governing policies
will be well designed or will work as intended. To the contrary:
Crisis eras are studded with faulty leadership and inept management --
from President Lincoln's poor record of choosing generals to President
Roosevelt's collassal blunders with such alphabet soup agencies as the
AAA, NRA and WPA. [p. 258] What makes a Crisis special is the
public's willingness to let leaders lead even when they falter and to
let authorities be authoritative even when they make mistakes. Amid
this civic solidarity, mediocre leaders can gain immense popular
following; bad policies can be made to work (or, at least, be
perceived as working); and, as at Pearl Harbor, even a spectacular
failure does not undermine public support. Good policy choices pay
off quickly. (In an Awakening, by contrast, even the best leaders and
plans can fail, and one misstep can destroy public confidence.)
[pp. 257-258]

Private life also transforms beyond prior recognition. Now less
important than the team, individuals are expected to comply with the
new Fourth Turning standards of virtue. Family order strengthens,
and personal violence and behavior now face implacable public stigma,
even punishment. Winner-take-all arrangements give way to
enforceable new mechanisms of social sharing. Questions about who
does what are settled on grounds of survival, not fairness. This
leads to a renewed social division of labor by age and sex. In the
realm of public activity, elders are expected to step aside for the
young, women for men. When danger looms, children are expected to be
protected before parents, mothers before fathers. All social
arrangements are evaluated anew; pre-Crisis promises and expectations
count for little. Where the Unraveling had been an era of fast-paced
personal lives against a background of public gridlock, in the Crisis
the pace of daily life will seem to slow down just as political and
social change accelerates. p. 258

When society approaches the climax of a Crisis, it reaches a
point of maximum civic power. Where the new values regime had once
justified individual fury, it now justifies public fury. Wars become
more likely and are fought with efficacy and finality. The risk of
revolution is high -- as is the risk of civil war, since the community
that commands the greatest loyalty does not necessarily coincide with
political (or geographic) boundaries. Leaders become more inclined
to define enemies in moral terms, to enforce virtue militarily, to
refuse all compromise, to commit large forces in that effort, to
impose heavy sacrifices on the battlefield and home front, to build
the most destructive weapons contemporary minds can imagine, and to
deploy those weapons if needed to obtain an enduring victory. p. 258

The Crisis climax is human history's equivalent to nature's raging
typhoon, the kind that sucks all surrounding matter into a single
swirl of ferocious energy. Anything not lashed down goes flying;
anything standing in the way gets flattened. Normally occurring late
in the Fourth Turning, the climax gathers energy from an accumulation
of unmet needs, unpaid bills, and unresolved problems. It then spends
that energy on an upheaval whose direction and dimension were beyond
comprehension during the prior Unraveling era. The climax shakes a
society to its roots, transforms its institutions, redirects its
purposes, and marks its people (and its generations) for life. The
climax can end in triumph, or tragedy, or some combination of both.
Whatever the event and whatever the outcome, a society passes through
a great gate of history, fundamentally altering the course of
civilization. pp 258-59

Soon thereafter, this great gate is sealed by the Crisis
resolution, when victors are rewarded and enemies punished;
when empires or nations are forged or destroyed; when treaties are
signed and boundaries redrawn; and when peace is accepted, troops
repatriated, and life begun anew.

One large chapter of history ends, and another starts. In a very real
sense, one society dies -- and another is born. p. 259
