A US-China war is extremely imminent, since US President is said to be asked to sign the Hong Kong Autonomy Act approximately on 15 July, 2020. This Act will enable relevant authorities in US to impose sanctions against companies, organizations, entities, persons and financial institutions which are, in short, regarded as “friends of the Chinese Communist Party (hereafter “CCP”)” from viewpoint of US. This new regulation, once it will be enacted, will affect the global community and economy as well tremendously. Because not only Chinese banking sector but also various western prominent financial institutions such as “HSBC” are allegedly targeted in the framework of this Act.
There will be no way left for the leadership of CCP to save its money and assets, even though they are located and deposited outside the Chinese territory, as long as it will appropriately take fundamental measures against the US sanction. To dramatically change all these situations, CCP will be forced to militarily occupy the “crown jewel” for US in East Asia: Taiwan. Experts expect Chinees PLA Navy to tentatively occupy the Kinmen Island and withdraw as soon as possible.The occupation as such won’t be aimed at, because of its apparent lackness of physical capacity to maintain the occupied area. Regardless of that, the CCP leadership can’t help from doing so, while they really need to drag off US President Donald Trump to kick off a “package deal” as they used to do so with US counterparts so far. A sudden attack of the Navy against the Kinmen Island will give tremendous “shock waves” to prices of all the assets in and beyond East Asia, which will cause huge loss to actors of the Wall Street and their collaborators all over the world.
However, the situation will become much worse, when US President Donald Trump won’t accept the invitation for re-negotiation with CCP, viewing the declining expected rate of support for his candidacy in US presidential election in the forthcoming November. In such a case, unprecedented escalation of the conflict between US and CCP will be drastically increasing, which will lead us even to a irreversible start of the end-war for the whole human civilization. In this regard, the date “July 15, 2020” will be the point of no return, as far as I’ve been correctly informed both confidentially and openly.
Having said that, I firmly believe it is the high time for all of us to stop the US-China war, which is increasingly imminent right now. Taking every opportunity we have, we all are urged to appeal to the public that the global community shall make both sides, USG and CCP, refrain from taking such an irreversible step against the humanity. Instead, we shall recall all the Parties of our common goal to contain the pandemic and its “second wave” due to COVID-19 entirely. At this stage, it’s not each one of national interests but the human life as a whole that really matters, as the brave researcher evacuated from Hong Kong, Mme. Li-Meng Yan, correctly pointed out in the latest interview by Fox News.
All we need is to save not national pride but human lives as many as possible. The CCP is being condemned and accused of executing unparalleled bio-terrorism against the rest of the world. Apart from the political game to check the authenticity of such a theory, the time is limited to rescue the humanity against the historical pandemic, which could sooner or later include gastroenteritis with lethality. Now, it’s time for all of us to unite and fight against invisible enemies in the air.
Because I’m always talking about “Pax Japonica”, you might believe I belong to a Japanese type of ultranationalist. No, no way. To the contrary, I’m rather fed up with the typical Japanese way, particularly in both politics and economy. That was exactly the reason why I quitted my academic career at the age of 20 and jumped in the world of Japan’s diplomacy. Diplomacy, where the people are allowed to live between borders and nations. In the Japanese society, I thus feel as if I were a “NOWHERE MAN”, while I firmly believe I’m steadily connected with the hard core of Japan apart from her vulgar way and ordinary people.
In previous essays on this official weblog, I concentrated on issues of either the global community or other states such as PRC and the States. But this time, I’m gonna pick up an issue on Japan. It’s related to aggressive introvertness of the ordinary Japanese.
If you are foreign business person and wanna get involved in the Japanese domestic business and market, you’re kindly recommended not to follow the ways your predecessors mistakenly chose. The point is “Yes” in Japanese never means your Japanese counterpart agrees completely with you. Even he/she has still any reservation to your proposal, he/she just says “Yes” to keep social “politeness” in communication particularly with foreigners, who, according to their general belief and conception, shall be respected and protected in Japan. They sometimes say “NO” expressively, which indicates there is no way left for compromise. At least as long as you stick to logically argue, you never win. In short, both “Yes” and “No” in Japanese simply means the Japanese reject your proposal and opinion.
In this regard, I call this trend of Japanese business communication “aggressive introvertness”. There are unwritten rules only Japanese insiders have learned from their birth and obeyed, which are totally invisible to foreign visitors. They become aggressive, so as to protect these unwritten rules of the Japanese society. Simultaneously, they are indeed extremely introvert or seeing only inward, because they feel obliged to keep the internal harmony of the Japanese society and economy.
Those who come from foreign countries and wanna be successful in the Japanese business world, tend to easily approach to the Government of Japan, so that their business requests will be appropriately mixed into its orders and policies, which all the Japanese shall follow legally. In a short term, this seems to be an effective way for you, however, in a long term, it’s just harmful to the brand of you and your business/company in Japan, while they turn out to extremely hostile to you by stopping “special treatment for foreigners”, and blame you for collaborating with political and economic traitors in the Japanese society. The tiny door to the hard core of Japan is, of course, closed and never open again.
Having said all of that, I’m wondering how “Pax Japonica”, which I’ve been proclaiming here in advance, can be started, while the local people of the country, the people on the street of Japan, never accept anything from the outer world. Nevertheless, I herewith underline the fact there is nothing impossible, as long as we observe it comprehensively. Historically viewing, once something extraordinary took place in Japan, which the local people could endure any more, they suddenly became not “introvert” but “extrovert” so as to adapt themselves to the changing circumstances as soon as possible. And in this process of emergency, the way of the Japanese as emergency treatment will draw unprecedented attention thanks to its both effectiveness and appropriateness, they will be followed by other nations, which will be suffering from almost all the issues and problems the Japanese will have to tackle.
Imagine, all the Japanese gentlemen cut off their “topknot (Chonmage)“ without hesitation, when the Meiji Restoration has just begun in 1868. They also just slew away their traditional clothes or “Kimono” and wore western ones instead. Nobody can deny the same (or rather much more dramatic) tendency will emerge in the Japanese society very soon. In short, the question is how acute the accelerating crisis of the Japanese society is, which is about to inevitable lead the ordinary Japanese to change their mind from introvertness to extrovertness aggressively. At that moment, the above-mentioned “Pax Japan” will get started.
At this juncture, my institute believes we will reach this moment of the truth by May of 2024, and the first and last “point of no return” will be fixed in the latter half of 2022. Well, let’s see. Be united with us towards the better world called “Pax Japonica”.
Mr. X, whom you must be due to my previous posts quite familiar with, kindly suggested in advance that new oversees Chinese leaders living and staying in more than 90 countries would jointly declare foundation of the New Federal State of China at 8:37 A.M. on June 4. Here you are with the short video released by the project leadership including Stephen K. Bannon, the former advisor to US President Donald Trump.
Getting back to the history in both East Asia and China, we had a variety of revolutionary bodies and refugee governments of the Chinese, which were partly located even in Japan. And some of them succeeded to build up the self-proclaimed “New China”, while others totally failed with their own endless dreams for “New China”. Having said that, we can’t assume that the project of “New Federal State of China” will be fully realized and reach its goal to replace the previous nation states of the Chinese such as People’s Republic of China and Republic of China. As long as we stick to the conventional way of political-economic and geopolitical thinking in terms of the world order in the post WWII period, we don’t see any potentiality making the dream of NFSC happen in the very near future.
However, besides the remarkable fact that not only overseas Chinese middle-aged powerful leaders, but also Stephen K. Bannon, US political influencer of the populistic right wing, is joining the historical project, I herewith underline an unknown entity called the “Himalaya Supervisory Organization” obviously gets involved. What is it? Just read the following self-explanation quoted from the declaration:
The founding principles of the Himalaya Supervisory Organization are defending the security, wealth, freedom and dignity of the Chinese people together with the international community, safeguarding the future of the Chinese people, and contributing to the peace of the New Federal State of China and the world in the next millennium. “Himalaya” stands for democracy, rule of law, and freedom.
Established on the same basis of the Rule of Law Foundation and the Rule of Law Society, the Himalaya Supervisory Organization is a non-government organization that is substantial, legitimate, composed of designated personnel, and protected by international law. It will always serve as a third party to build a platform and bridge between the New Federal State of China without the Chinese Communist Party and the world to achieve everlasting peace, openness and transparency, compliance with law-binding rules, and open cooperation. It will also work closely with other countries in developing an ecosystem encompassing law, media, culture and finance, and will explore advanced internet technologies to increase transparency in the democratic system and reduce political and economic costs associated with its operation.
As a non-profit organization based overseas, the Himalaya Supervisory Organization will be bound by stringent regulations ratified jointly by the United States and the New Federal State of China government when elected, wherein penalty mechanisms will be established in order to guarantee a long lasting, effective, transparent and just supervision of the democracy, freedom, and rule of law in the New Federal State of China. Those from Himalaya Supervisory Organization who violate the clauses above will subject to the most severe punishment imposed by the new Chinese government, the United States government, the Himalaya Supervisory Organization, and other oversight organizations in accordance with law.
The June 4th Incident, also known as the Tiananmen Square massacre, is the most significant and far-reaching democratic movement and student movement in China’s modern history. Therefore, the Himalaya Supervisory Organization chose June 4th, this special date, to solemnly proclaim the New Federal State of China declaration!
Still, you might wonder “Why Himalaya for New China?”, if you’re not aware of the origin and consequences of the Trans-Himalayan esoteric Buddhism. If the new project of NFSC is backed by the spiritual tradition of such an outstanding esoteric teaching, the attempt really matters to the entire global community. If so, the NFSC will be founded even along with the previous efforts of “theosophical” organizations, which are extremely influential even to the western intellectual leadership sympathizing “Theosophy” by Rudolf Steiner and Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.
In previous posts, I frequently mentioned that our world will very soon face the “Gnostistic Revolution” of its contemporary order, which will replace everything conventional with something and someone completely brand-new. The point is how it will be kicked off and who will carry out such a dramatic change of the human society. In short, we urgently need a “written future scenario with clear words and instructions on what to do for reaching the ultimate goal of the human beings”. In this regards, there are three possible “hotspots”, where this final scenario with a roadmap to the “Gnostistic Revolution” will abruptly emerges: Israel with “Kabbalah”, Himalaya with “esoteric Buddhism”, and last but not the least, Japan with “Shintoism”. Behind all the incidents we wee everyday on the surface of the world, there is the final fight among these three mystic traditions; “Who will be finally selected and allowed to save the world.”
Based on this kind of understanding on the fundamental issue, My institute, IISIA, which regards itself as a “safe haven” of all the intellectual directions, ethnics, nationalities and even ideologies, will further follow the development of the new project “NFSC” with great interest. As far as our institute is well informed, China will be divided into four parts at the last stage of the on-going turmoil among the Chinese leaders, and will hold a general meetings of all the big and powerful Chinese families in Jinan, to which a Japanese mission with sufficient knowledge and experience on these matters will be invited as one of the most essential stake holders in East Asia.
The history obviously goes beyond the previous frameworks dramatically from now one. Get fully prepared for the next phase of the human civilization. Stay tuned.
