bbc r4 Today programme had a most horrible twisted interviewee that I suppose valuably shed light on how insane some of the thinking is in the trump Regime. Asst Prof Dr Greg Autry of Southern California, years ago author of a book titled ‘Death by China’ was given prominent airtime this morning. Why are we hearing this … oh my goodness, its hard to believe what we hear…
The alarming and skewed nonsense, I mean the interview with Asst Prof Greg Autry starts at 08:10 and we can say that this interview is certainly enlightening, I think Autry doesn’t realise he’s being exposed as the regressive jingoistic dinosaur he appears to be. Citing 19C USA tariff mindset, Hamiltonian Economics and openly regarding Zhongguo (China) as a suitable case for I quote “regime change”, its all worrying to hear. Perhaps Autry (if he is so keen on historical precedent) forgets its the Chinese that built the railroads out to the Pacific and lost many lives in the process, blasting through difficult terrain etc when white men would not perform such work. Perhaps Autry (if he is so keen on historical approaches) forgets the Imperialist crowbar from the British that resulted in flooding China with opium in the nineteenth century; the west cannot regard themselves as any beacon of virtue. Also mentioning three times instances of ‘concentration camps’ being used within in a couple of minutes (yes we get the message) … admittedly there are some terrible things still happening in China BUT …. China has come a long way since the Communists took over in 1946, then thankfully the demise of Mao and since 1980 has worked miracles, has evolved at extraordinary pace in all fronts and provided the world with low cost product that has allowed massive profit margins and still allowed ordinary people to buy so much at such keen prices. And yet trump and his nasty imperial regressives want to bite off the hand that has enabled so much easy profit to be made by western businesses large and small ! Uh-oh this is v dangerous territory for the Asst Prof to hammer home all points of negativity and yet ignore totally where the world can work towards something better and is (was?) working toward something better. This ignorant mindset upsets me, after hearing the interview I felt as when I heard the abysmal ‘Inaugration Speech’ from trump, close to tears.
Chuck Schumer is also cited as hailing to trump “Hang tough with China”. If its the same Chuck Schumer I’m thinking of then I’m very surprised at his low-brow simplistic exhortations.
Asst Prof Greg Autrys book actually of 2011 vintage received abysmal reviews and is generally described as jingoistic alarmist nonsense citing problems but offering no solutions, no understanding of how to move forward. As if shouting at foreigners will make them understand you any more easily, or more obedient. This is where the present leadership of the USA has descended. Therefore we wonder how far the bbc scraped the barrel to come up with this particular interviewee Greg Autry… bbc radio news other than ‘The World Tonight’ at 10pm is often is hardly worth airtime in the perennially golden glow it casts toward trump, imagine you were blind and this were your only news source!
One little man Autry with one little misguided outdated book his shot at fame, his ‘theory’ of how to deal with China does not make an opinion. Rather ask the hundreds and thousand of Heads of Corporation what they think of the direction and inabilities of trump? Tariffs cannot help anyone. trump already is creating suffering, turmoil and needless poverty and upset in the middle east, Iran, North Korea etc now he’s heading toward China. He is attempting to engineer particular regimes and countries on the world map to increase and prosper whilst to damage others. Perhaps his low attention span and lack of grasp will work to the worlds advantage.
There needs to be greater more honest psychological evaluation of the so-called God help us – Commander in Chief, he is much as when a younger man, veneer thin, blustering, ignorant. In his lack of ability he thinks tv skills will serve him sufficient for whatever task he performs, frighteningly there is a grain of sense in this bizarre mindset
- trumps total inability to organise, form and develop any deal whatsoever, this a reflection of his life so far.
- trumps inability to realise or cope with Asian protocol, diplomatic technique or manners.
- trumps total denial of the need for an intelligent experienced Diplomacy. Bolton and Pompeo are nowhere near up to this task.
As you can see I deny trump upper case.
Here the skewed life of trump … https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/84273524/posts/2272324170
The world should and could be going in better directions than this.
