    For discernment to work there has to be some credible chain of reasoning. If we really want to use false equivalence as a starting point, we should understand the clues that it represents.

    Tsar is a title used to designate certain European Slavic monarchs or supreme rulers. As a system of government in the Tsardom of Russia and Russian Empire, it is known as Tsarist autocracy, or Tsarism. The term is derived from the Latin word Caesar, which was intended to mean "Emperor" in the European medieval sense of the term—a ruler with the same rank as a Roman emperor, with-holding it by the approval of another emperor or a supreme ecclesiastical official (the Pope or the Ecumenical Patriarch)—but was usually considered by western Europeans to be equivalent to king, or to be somewhat in between a royal and imperial rank.

  • David Rockefeller’s promotion of China over 35 years ago wasn’t because his ideal was for a nation of just communal peasants. The Rockefeller plan was rather that China would be the fulfillment of Frederick Gates’ “dream” of docile rural folk satisfied with their own lot and led by an educated elite. This would not only be a political elite, but a technical elite as well, such as those at BYD who beat Detroit in the mass production of an electric car.

    There is still a large rural population in China, and those poor who move to cities such as Shanghai often live as poor workers in hovels between the modern skyscrapers. A friend of mine actually took photos of this, as well as of two women on the front lawn of a skyscraper cutting the grass with just scissors! It’s the return to feudalism described in W.J. Ghent’s Our Benevolent Feudalism (1902), which Jack London in The Iron Heel (1907) proclaimed would be “the textbook” the oligarchs and plutocrats would use in “moulding the thought processes of the nation.”
  • Unnecessary mental gymnastics to identify what should be the obvious truth.
