In 1949, Mao named his country the “People’s Republic of China.”
Historically, China had practically no foreign visitors, just as practically no Chinese had visited the outside world. While Lenin and many other future “Soviet leaders” had been living a great deal in free Western countries, Mao was a pure product of China, more distant from the Western culture than was the pre-1917 Russia, with its books of genius, read in the West as they were read in Russia, while many Russians were as close to the freedom in the West as they were close to whatever freedom there was in Russia, moving to Western freedom.
For the founder of the PRC, just as for many other Chinese, the West was no source of freedom as was his, Mao’s, brain, and that was assumed to be more than enough to create the “freest” society.
Now, while each of thousands of Western historians studies just one of allegedly different civilizations, historically, however, we can speak about two kinds of civilization.
Absolutism dominated all countries before the rise of Greece and Rome. While the structure of absolutism was based on one person called, for example, the emperor, in Greece and Rome decisions were taken by the demos, that is, the entire population.
Most absolutist civilizations were prototypes of a (criminal) gang: there is one “leader” of a country (as there is one leader in a criminal gang, members of which are actually his slaves, helping him to rule all members of his gang by killing or torturing to death those who disobeyed him).
Not so long ago, there appeared in Western Europe and in North America (a former British colony) a civilization in which there was no owner of it, and the order was maintained by courts, in which the legal decisions were made by the vote of the demos, that is, “ordinary members of society,” chosen also by “ordinary members of society,” not by orders of the emperor.
Earlier, in Greece, such arrangement was called “democracy,” from the Greek word “demos,” that is, “ordinary members of society,” not the emperor.
Today it is being questioned which of the two kinds of civilization will win the world and which will perish.
The strategic advantages of the imperial slave civilization are as follows:
The possibility to mobilize by order of the owner of the country all adults in the country (except its owner and his helpmates);
The possibility to kill or torture to death anyone in the country who does not obey its owner
the possibility to steal (from the countries of the demos) weapons, latest technology, and whatever else necessary for the victory.
The strategic advantages of the rule by the demos are as follows:
The conviction of a majority that the victory in a war against an absolutist country is as necessary as life, and not death;
The genius responsible for the creation of new weapons, owing to the freedom of creativity
the demand of a majority that the war be conducted by “our country” in the best way possible.
The slave countries are not omnipotent and invincible. For free countries, however, it is necessary to correct such defects as the possibility of an Obama to be elected the U.S. president through “general election.”
The winning or losing of a decisive war between slave countries and countries ruled by the demos depends, on the one hand, on the desire of the demos to survive and, on the other hand, on the cunning of the owners of slave countries and the quality of their brains and the brains of their advisers. It also depends on the quality of the brains of the demos and hence on the brains of those whom the demos has chosen to ensure the survival of the countries ruled by the demos, that is, free and not enslaved. The societies of the demos were the first human societies that resulted from the free development of the human brain. Will this make them stronger than the slave societies, in which the human brain is developed only for the benefit of their rulers’ military might, achieved by the labor of their slaves, copying and stealing bits of the military power from the demos and hence from the achievements of the free human genius?
The global drama or tragedy is unfolding before our eyes — and our brains!
It is high time to realize that Obamas are the result of those who assume that every idiot who is not mentally advanced is wise enough to elect the U.S. president or be elected the U.S. president. Freedom should not be identified with mental backwardness characteristic of millions of ignorant people, who might destroy America.
