    So, certain ill-willed illibertarian Canada-residing Han chauvinist polemicist has penned what appears to be an euphemism-laden piece on Carl Schmitt, the Nazi icon aka "Hitler's Crown Jurist" (1933-1945) who is now venerated as the saviour of the CCP of a new nazional-sozialist era.

    Schmitt's fine legalistic innovation can be summed up as "a dictatorship can and must do anything to preserve itself and codifying its own actions as 'lawful' gives it a veneer of respectability".

    Holocaust? Check.
    Pursuing Lebensraum and genocide at neighbours' expense? Check.
    All perfectly 'legal' and 'respectable' under the dictatorship's own 'laws'.
    Also a very helpful concept with all the sycophants, "loyal trash" and others "just following orders"...
    So-called "NSL" anyone?



    Here's a good backgrounder on the character that first helped to justify Nazi policies and now the CCP...

    The Nazi Inspiring China’s Communists
    A decades-old legal argument used by Hitler has found support in Beijing.

    Broader look may support different hypotheses...
    Broad proportion of sheep affinity for brands (name recognition), strongmen, and authority. Or just plain old naïveté.

    Left out from those surveys - Brazil, India, Philippines and Turkey... I'd like to know what their numbers are.

    I wish they'd also surveyed opinions on the local leader of the day in each of those published countries.

    I wonder if Xianggang SAR is part of this scheme... There just might be repercussions.

    They speak in Porky.
    They act like pigs.
    They control pigs. (wild ones are still WIP)
    Who are they?
    And more importantly, who do they think they are...

    Meanwhile in China's Xizang "autonomous region", some 70 years since its so-called "peaceful liberation" by the CCP's army...

    Here we go...

    CCP simply couldn't control its nature and it believes it will win the game called "If we burn, you burn with us", locally known as laam chau ( 攬炒 ).


    The multinationals (almost by definition) will largely bow before the Great Helmsman II, but this will trigger so many other cogs into action that the Soviet-trained omninpotent Leader may be in for a surprise. Although it's more likely that he simply believes his empire is ready for anything by now. Is it?
