Mike King — Tomato Bubble
An Englishman in China
Following Monday’s rebuttal piece about China’s “authoritarian” leader, Xi Jinping, and the rapid progress of China, a long-time reader and English ex-pat living in China wrote in to confirm and expand upon what we had published about the success of what is essentially a Chinese version of market-oriented fascism. His letters, coming from first-person experience, were extremely enlightening and uplifting — yet a bit heart-breaking at the same time.
We say “uplifting” because of our admiration for China’s positive energy, self-confidence, economic development and cultural advancement. As lovers of humanity, we wish all the peoples/races of the world the best (well, maybe not so much for some of badly behaving elements we refer to as “the usual suspects”). But we also describe the letter as “heart-breaking” because it makes the painful sense of loss for us westerners all the more stark and acute. We Europeans once had that very same “mojo” which China is now rediscovering. But a certain “they” (cough cough) took it away from us, and it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting it back anytime soon, if ever.
We read and appreciate all comments/letters which come in — even though we can’t respond to them all — but we generally don’t publish the feedback. But this was too good not to share with “youse guys” (New Jerseyese for the plural of “you”). We don’t know if our English reader would have wanted his name published or not, so we’ll just refer to him as “The Englishman in China.” The following comments/letters constitute his full testimonial about the dynamic “communist” fascist nation which has wisely banished the New York Slimes, the Soros groups, Fakebook and various other Globalist NGO’s from its land.
Original Comments from Englishman in China: Damn right! I’ve lived in China for many years. The people here (including myself) have a far better quality of life and are much freer than people living in DEMONcratic England where the people are physically and mentally abused on a daily basis.
ANYT: You do? Where? What else can you share with me? Would love to get a western / ex-pat’s perspective.
Englishman in China: I have always felt much freer here in China than in England. The police act as civil servants and have little if no public presence out of the foreign tourist spots (which is all mainly for show). The police in normal areas sit around wearing gym shoes smoking and generally relaxing. They also help cut trees and do road maintenance etc. No high viz meat-head glorified thugs here. The police don’t usually get involved in people’s affairs, and prefer to watch from the side lines, monitoring situations, more than interfering and controlling. I have many examples of this if you want. Another thing I love about China is their non-use of sirens. Police don’t use high pitched ear bleeding sirens (like you hear 24/7 in England, even in small villages) which upset and distress people on a conscience and subconscious level. You very rarely hear sirens, only very occasionally a low pitched and much quieter warning from an ambulance.
The Chinese people are far happier than the people in England. This is because they are not physically and mentally abused by an onslaught of highly disturbing and negative fear-based tripe on an hourly to daily basis. I love watching the Chinese news. The people are kept in control here, not by fear-based tactics, but instead by a constant relaying of positivity, that China is a wonderful country, and that it’s economy is strong and secure. Honest opinions are heard about North Korea, that it is the Americans who started it in 2006 (?) and that lil Kim is only reacting to protect his people. Very little time is spent on Globalist NWO fake news, preferring to report on all the positive things that are happening in China. There is a huge optimism here for the future which is refreshing. England has a feeling of decay and degeneration.
Old people here are respected and they enjoy a much better and healthier quality of life. They are the elders, they are cherished. They are always seen sitting outside together, playing board games, doing QiGong and spending time in the community, unlike the helpless, terrified, caged and mostly ignored elderly of the UK.
“It was the stupid people in their 60’s and over who voted out of Europe!” Instead of, “the elders have spoken. They have more wisdom than others, and their views are to be respected.” The elderly are active members of the community and work in the public gardens and volunteer for things like road safety assistance.
China’s big cities are massive, yet retain a sense of community. The sight of old-timers passing the time playing cards or board games is common in China.
I could continue forever. I love China, it’s people, it’s strong and protected cultural traditions and its ‘for the people’ government. Okay, Falun Dafa persecution, corruption etc., they are not perfect but compared to the corrupt demon infested ‘democratic’ governments of England, who are actively setting out to perverse and destroy their own people and culture, China is wonderful in comparison.
If you want more I am more than happy to continue.
ANYT: Sure…very interesting. How did you end up there? is that your permanent home now? What city/region?
Englishman in China: Notes to Mike 2 — I have lived in and around Nanjing for six years. I am now travelling and currently in DaLi. It’s wonderful.
China has a very strong sense of nationalism. They know who they are and are very proud. The Chinese flag is hung everywhere, and why shouldn’t it be? I remember in England after “Brexit” when people who hung the British flag outside their homes were called racist (palm over face, groaning deeply). The general consensus is that “we are the best country in the world”, again, is a refreshing optimism that holds energy and vigour.
The country has very strong reemerging religious movements. Yesterday I went to a Christian church here in DaLi. China is covered with Buddhist, Daoist and Confucius temples. People practice QiGong openly in public areas and spirituality is strong.
I have never felt so free as I have felt these past six years in China. The Chinese people pretty much do whatever they want. The way they see it is, China is “theirs”, all of theirs, and not the governments. When the smoking ban came in, it was totally ignored, and still is to this day. People sell fruit, vegetables etc. on the street. The government tried to clear it up, they moved the sellers on, but the next day, the sellers came back. This continued on a daily basis, sellers being moved on, sellers coming back until the police stopped moving them on. Fantastic haha. For six years I never paid income tax, and many businesses don’t. Just because there is a law, it does not mean that it is followed or enforced. This is the opposite to England where laws are completely followed and glorified like the words have come down from God himself. The enforced smoking ban was imposed here without a vote, in a “democratic” country.
Bills are very low and affordable, water, gas and electric bills are barely noticeable. Public transport is incredibly good and incredibly cheap! English railways are the biggest scam in comparison. For me to travel on a brand new bullet train going 300 km an hour from Nanjing to Shanghai it costs me 14 pounds. That’s the expensive rate. I can also take a “slow train” (the same as the fastest trains we have in England) if I can’t afford 14 pounds, and travel for 4 pounds. That’s 346 km. I can take a 20-hour slow sleeper train from ChongQing to KunMing (650 km) for 14 pounds. If you miss your train, you just go to the desk to change your ticket or get a refund. If you miss the extortionate and highly crappy train in England you have to buy another ticket. It costs me 8 pounds to do a 10-mile train journey from my home to the nearest city in England. It’s 80 pounds to go from Norwich to London (150 km). In China, everyone can afford to travel, there’s a rate for all income brackets. Brand new subways and buses are pennies to use. Trains are efficient, modern and affordable.
China’s got talent! You know, I absolutely detest the manufactured drivel on the X-factor and Britain’s got talent. I have always hated watching that debauched filth.
But you know what? I love watching the Chinese version. It’s really beautiful and the contestants have real talent. The clothes and dance routines are highly respectful. They play traditional Chinese instruments and sing wonderfully soft and compassionate Chinese songs.
Headline: BBC News (April 6, 2017)
“The country where 70% of millennials are homeowners”
China has one of the highest home ownership rates in the world – including among millennials
“While young people around the world are struggling to get on the property ladder, an HSBC study found that 70% of Chinese millennials have achieved the milestone.
A sizeable 91% also plan to buy a house in the next five years, according to the survey.” — (FULL ARTICLE HERE)
The hospitals here are amazing. All appointments are same day, no three month waits like at home. You just turn up, pay about 30 pence to see a doctor and wait your turn. Simple and effective. The pharmacies are industrial scale natural herbal medicine outlets and are within the hospitals. They prescribe herbs for your condition which you can have boiled up for you into daily servings at the hospital and then posted to your house in a two week supply for an extremely cheap price. It’s very good indeed. When I had a server skin condition here, the doctors refused to give me antibiotics as they are damaging and only used as a last resort. ALL the doctors have prescribed for the same condition in England IS antibiotics! In China they asked me, what am I eating, they looked at my tongue, they asked me what my stool looked like. They actually try to cure you naturally and to get to the root of the problem. In England, they ONLY prescribe big pharma drugs without asking and recommending anything else for diet or lifestyle. As you know these drugs only make you even more ill.
China has incredibly low immigration, about 0.06% of their population. “Racist” bastards! Everything is done by Chinese people. When I get to the airport in England I am always amazed to see that about 95% of the staff are non-white native British people. “Oh, we don’t want to do those types of jobs anymore so we need to give them all to immigrants.” Bullshit! We are becoming so mixed now it’s incredible! When I fly to China, of course, there are only Chinese workers.
NO FOREIGNERS ARE ALLOWED TO WORK IN CHINA DOING A JOB THAT A CHINESE PERSON CAN DO!
Foreigners are not allowed to work in bars, restaurants, sweep the streets, work in airports, factories etc. because it would take the jobs from the Chinese people. Wow! Imagine if we had that level of common sense in our countries! Foreigners are ONLY allowed to do things the Chinese CAN’T do as well, for example, teach English. And that’s the law here. Bravo!
Funnily enough, the Chinese actually are openly racist. “Black people are lazy, we don’t like black people.” “White people are very intelligent and we admire their work ethic and achievements.” I hear this sort of thing all the time! But no, it’s the Whites that are racist, never the Chinese.
When the notoriously anti-White all-black basketball team of Georgetown University started their ghetto act in China, they were taught a swift lesson in manners. After the Chinese team lay a beat-down on them, Georgetown had to leave the court as the Chinese fans threw objects at them.
China isn’t overrun with advertisements from corporations mind controlling you to buy things that you don’t need. On their buses and subways, instead of countless adverts, the government shows videos about how to keep healthy, how to practice QiGong, how to cook healthily, why you should quit smoking, why taking natural herbs and medicines are good for health and the overuse of mobile phones etc.
And finally, counter to what people in the West think, China looks after the families it buys the land from for development much much better than the west. It actually makes the landowners mega rich. They want more people to be rich to fund the economy because the government own the corporations whereas, at home, the corporations own the government. Big difference! I have a friend and the government took her house to build a skyscraper on. They gave every one of her family members an apartment each (8 people). The apartments are worth a lot of money. They all live in two and rent the rest. On top of that, they gave an extra 8 apartments which they sold and are now millionaires! The whole family doesn’t need to work ever again! This is happening EVERYWHERE in China.
