Hong Kong’s Extradition Law and the Protests from China’s Perspective (2024)

This video series put things into perspective very easily. Every story has two sides, and the western narrative so easily supports treason and terrorism against the Chinese government as normal. They see the government of China as an illegitimate regime and would rather see destruction and chaos against it than stability and progress.

China’s extradition law would be normal and even lax in the grand scheme of things. Every western state has the capacity to persecute people who make themselves enemies of the state by colluding with foreign nations or other serious crimes.

We were also not told the whole story of how destructive and violent the protestors were.

Donetsk Demands a Referendum – Vice News (2014)

This is a video from 2014. This entire series on YouTube contains a deluge of evidence on the true nature of the war in Ukraine. This video shows the massive pro-Russia sentiment in the independent state of The People’s Republic of Donetsk.

They wanted democracy to show the world it was not “Russian imperialism” that made them leave Ukraine but Ukrainian oppression.

How China is saving the world from climate change

Climate change used to make me depressed until I saw that China is almost single-handedly saving the world. China just tripled their new solar energy production in one year. At just 17% of the world population, China is now home to 80% of the world’s solar production. They produce a third of all renewable energy, three times more than the United States, who is now producing more fossil fuels than any country in human history. Over the next five years, China will build as much renewable capacity as the rest of the world combined, plus an additional 30% more. Meanwhile, the US is restricting the trade of affordable Chinese solar panels.

China also plants more trees yearly than any country in the world. They’ve been fighting back the spread of the Gobi Desert since the 70’s by reforesting as much area as the state of California. China’s Great Green Wall project is their second wall big enough to be seen from space.

You’ve seen the memes about Taylor Swift’s private jet. People are freaking out because air travel is easily the worst thing an individual can do for the environment. A single passenger on a flight from New York to LA and back is responsible for 10% of the average American’s CO2 emissions.

Taking a train can cut emissions of a shorter flight by over 80% and actually save you time since high speed rail can travel over 250MPH. Yeah, train stations are easier to get to and don’t have hour-long security lines. That’s why I’m freaking out over the fact that China built 68% of the world’s high speed rail in just 15 years!

It’s gonna be the only sustainable way to travel fast, and it’s cheaper than flying too! It costs around $80, ⅓ of the price of flying, to take high speed rail from Beijing to Shanghai. And if you’re on a budget, you can take a slower train for as cheap as $20.

Also, China is the leading producer and purchaser of electric vehicles, producing and purchasing over 5 times as much as the United States, who’s in second place. Meanwhile, the United States has banned Chinese electric car brands from selling their superior quality and much more affordable cars to us. Apparently there are now several smaller EV models that sell for under $10,000 in China, and they’re actually nice and hi-tech. The savings come from the insanely efficient and automated factories they’ve developed.

Meanwhile Tesla, one of the biggest companies in the United States, manufactures over half of their cars in China. And the EU just hit China’s biggest EV company with a 13-month audit to make sure that the government hasn’t been unfairly helping the company develop its technology… to save our planet from destruction… because… markets? They’re also admitting that socialist economies have an advantage yet say socialism can never work… uhhh.

Do you see how ironic it is that these capitalist countries have to use their governments to keep their failing industries alive because they can’t compete with China on a free market? Gotta save the corporations… at the expense of the consumer and the planet.

When I visited Shenzhen, the streets were covered with a brand new fleet of electric taxis. The entire world needs to follow China’s rapid pace if we want to prevent rising sea levels, massive crop failures, and extreme natural disasters. But the rest of the world is still subservient to corporations and profit. The only reason China can do all this is also the reason why they’re the biggest polluters in the world. I’ll explain.

First, know that this pollution comes from development and manufacturing so much for the rest of the world. Second, know that China has taken over 28% of the world’s manufacturing. China is the biggest producer of coal in the world because it’s the energy source they have today to build the renewable energy of tomorrow. And it still puts China behind 14 other countries when you divide by their massive population. China pollutes way less per person than Japan or South Korea while Australia, Canada, and the US all pollute almost 3x as much per person.

China has taken on over 28% of the world’s manufacturing and is the biggest trading partner of 120 of the world’s 195 countries. Look around at all the clothing, electronics, machines, and even the phone in your hand. So much of it was made in China. In a sense, the world is exporting all their emissions these products cause to China.

They do this because China made it so the corporations need what they have. It’s profitable for the corporations to play by their rules because China’s developed the best factories, have the most experienced workforce, and now have the largest middle-class consumer market. 

China understands that controlling production is the only path to sovereignty in this capitalist world. They chose to use capitalism’s short-term profit-seeking against itself to bring a large share of the world’s production under their control. They had to pollute their own country a ton for foreign corporations to profit, so they could bring that money in to build their own production.

Now they can afford to manufacture and develop all this green tech and focus on long-term goals. No capitalist countries can start a war with them or try to redirect their production to short-term profit-seeking because the corporations in charge of the rest of the world are too invested in China. They obey short-term profits while China is building the green economy of the future.

Here are some useful graphs I will use as graphics for the video I made on this subject:

What is really going on in Ukraine?

Ukrainian Nationalists will say you are spreading Russian propaganda if you question how more weapons and war will solve their very real problems with sovereignty, democracy, and Russia. They will say your sources are Russian fake news without being able to provide a coherent counterargument and without directing you to a more credible source for that information.

They will never be able to correct the information you or I present to them because this information is accepted by both sides! So please, take a look at these anti-Russian, mainstream sources that I have gathered that show more nuance to the ongoing war in Ukraine, from its inception after the violent coup in 2014.

Before you take a look at the sources I used for my video, I recommend you take a look at this BBC segment from 9 years ago called “Why do some Ukrainians want to be part of Russia?”

This video shows that it’s not black-and-white “Russian imperialism” as we’ve been told. This war started with ethnically Russian Ukrainian separatists fighting for independence after their president was violently overthrown in 2014.

Now here is a Washington Post article that shows very clearly that Crimeans overwhelmingly wanted to join Russia in 2014 after the coup.

Six years and $20 billion in Russian investment later, Crimeans are happy with Russian annexation

This article uses data from a US Government funded poll that shows this approval of Russian leadership lasting through 2019. This study was funded with a grant from the US National Science Foundation Political Science Program, which makes sense because the US needed to understand what was really going on at the time.

Here is the episode of Vice’s Russian Roulette series from Ukraine in 2014 that I feature in my video that shows pro-Russian demonstrations. There are really two sides of this conflict, but the west tries to erase the pro-Russian side.

Now, here is the CBC piece covering Ukraine’s ongoing civil war in Donetsk in 2022, immediately before the Russian invasion. By this point, the pro-Russian separatists have control over the region but allowed the CBC journalist to see the situation for herself. She interviews civilians who lost family members and were themselves injured by Ukrainian shelling.

Here is the UN report that details the deaths of the civil war in Ukraine between 2014 and Jan 2022. The report mostly focuses on civilian deaths, and the 14,000+ deaths figure occurs in the final paragraph.

Here is the video of the UNICEF representative responding that UNICEF had no evidence that Russia had been “kidnapping” Ukrainian children.

And here is UNICEF’s response to the reports.

From what I can tell, these territories are Russian now, and Russia can’t leave children, many of them orphaned by this cruel war, in these war zones. This is a truly tragic situation with no “good” or “fair” outcome that will please everybody. And for every claim that Russia is trying to “Russify” these children, Ukraine is doing the same to try to “re-integrate” them into Ukrainian society.

Here is the only Russian source I will give because these are the results of Russian referendums. This is a Wikipedia article because the original source is in Russian, but you can go to that website and translate it yourself.

According to the results released by the Russian Central Election Commission through its sections in the DPR and the LPR, 99.23% (2,116,800 voters) supported the annexation in Donetsk and 98.42% (1,636,302 voters) in Luhansk. The turnouts were 97.51% (2,131,207 voters) and 94.15% (1,662,607 voters), respectively.

Here is the Associated Press article that shows that Zelensky has suspended presidential elections because of the war.

Ukraine’s president rules out holding elections next spring and calls for unity in fighting Russia

Here is the Democracy Now! report on the Ukrainian peace activist whose home was raided by police for being against the war.

Ukraine’s so-called democracy is in shambles. War makes countries more conservative, nationalistic, and less democratic. This is clearly happening in Russia as well, and that is why we need to advocate for compromise and peace negotiations immediately.

Here is the MSNBC article about Ukraine’s very real “Nazi problem.”

Ukraine’s Nazi problem is real, even if Putin’s ‘denazification’ claim isn’t

It’s so weird that liberals always have to frame Russia’s motives as the personal motives of Putin himself. It shows their childish, individualist mentality and need for a world with heroes and villains when reality is much more messy.

Now here is the graphic I referenced to show the blatant disregard for sovereignty and democracy that the US has displayed throughout the Cold War. Nothing has changed. They convinced people that they were the good guys in all these conflicts as well.

This source is an archived page from the National Endowment for Democracy’s grant database that shows how many millions of dollars they have dumped into influencing the politics of Ukraine. The NED is directly funded by the US government, and their resource allocation is determined by congress.

The NED removed all evidence of these grants after the Russian invasion, which was a clear admission of guilt.

When Ukrainian Nationalists attack proponents of peace online, their strategies of discrediting you feel like they’re copying the Zionist playbook:

First, they gaslight you and say you are stupid and crazy… but they can’t correct any of the “obviously wrong” information you share.

Second, they use identity politics to get the liberals on board with their nationalist movement. For me, when I call for peace negotiations, they say that I’m a privileged white gay boy from New York City who needs to shut up and listen to the nationalist pro-war Ukrainians about why more bloodshed is productive. This is nonsense because there are people who don’t understand the politics and history of their homeland all over the world, plenty of Ukrainians disagree with each other, and nothing is stopping many of these blank accounts from lying about where they come from. And in Israel’s case, they call you anti-semitic for opposing their genocide of Palestinians.

Third, both the Israelis and Ukranians engage in shifting the narrative to appear like the anti-imperialist side. Israelis claim that “Islamic Imperialists” kicked the Jews out of Israel thousands of years ago, so white European Jews have the right to kick Palestinians out of their homes. Ukrainian Nationalists do the same when they point to Ukraine’s history during the USSR when ethnic Russians moved into the eastern regions of Ukraine. They say that they now have the right to disenfranchise this ethnic minority in their country (by not letting them vote to leave) and even to take back their land through ethnic cleansing. That’s not how democracy and anti-imperialism work.

China’s Caribbean Ties: Dominica FM Speaks (2023)

Time and time again, we hear leadership from developing countries praise China for their hands-off approach to development. Countries who work with China get competitive interest rates, no political intervention, and new vital infrastructure.

It’s important to lift the voices of developing nations US global leadership has neglected and even stifled for so many years. A new pathway has emerged that doesn’t require a leader. China is showing how it’s possible to lead with win-win deals that honor both parties’ interests and autonomy, and they’re leading with action not ideology.

Also, this interview in particular struck me as wholesome and enjoyable! These two had so much success and national friendship to celebrate!

Why We Fight – China (1944)

This documentary on China is a propaganda film produced by the US for WWII and is a part of a series of films meant to show soldiers and the public why the war was important.

However, a decade after this film was released, the CIA was training terrorist Tibetan separatists at Camp Hale in Colorado to fight China in what would be a failed armed rebellion.

Tibet – The Truth (2013)

This documentary really opened my eyes to the complex history of Tibet. I really appreciated learning how serious the threat of imperialism was to the region leading up to its reunification with China. Also, the part beginning at 37:39 clearly explains the conflict that occurred during reunification. However, I encourage readers to watch from the beginning to see the context for why reunification was so important.
