Truth About Afghanistan & Anti-War Movements

I‘m not an advocate of war but I’m skeptical of anti-war sentiment and the danger it creates. The anti-war sentiment regularly rejects objective reality, replacing facts with feelings. Ironically, this can and has lead to far greater immorality than the immorality of war itself. I also find it troubling that anti-war movements are unaware that anti-war propaganda is a foreign nation’s best tool for controlling a nation it seeks to undermine. This is something activists of any type should be aware of, as they’re naturally a prime target for covert infiltration and influencing of policy change.

Myth of Meaningless War 

In today’s politics, Afghanistan is a “meaningless” and “endless war”, only destructive to America and democracy itself. This could not be further from the truth.  A big secret of the military industrial complex is that there is no such thing as a meaningless, endless war. There is a purpose for almost, if not every act of war the U.S. takes. However, the American people can’t be trusted by the establishment to recognize the greater dangers in the realm of geopolitics, so the veil of terrorism is used to simplify and pacify the masses.

If They Were Honest

If the U.S. establishment said, “We need you to risk your life to prevent the escalating threat of Communist China dictating global affairs”, nobody would sign up for that war as the implications of world order under China aren’t as tangible to them as the “war on terror”.

Proxy War On America

The average American doesn’t understand the destructive influence of China on Silicon Valley, Hollywood, mainstream media, academia, manufacturing, etc. It’s slowly eroding America and democracy but no one sees it since this war is very complex and subtle and therefore, intangible. So, instead of Trump decrying Iran, Russia, and China for undermining Afghanistan and America, the Trump Administration invokes the veil of terrorism and focuses on Pakistan, which is the right thing to do if we’re serious about Afghanistan, China, and North Korea.

Afghanistan 

In reality, the war in Afghanistan is more about China and North Korea than the ‘war on terror’, although Pakistan is a legitimate concern.

“New scenarios of the US strategy in Afghanistan affect the interests of China. Over the recent time, the administration of (President Donald) Trump has been way too active in initiating hotbeds of tension close to the Chinese borders: in North Korea, and now in Afghanistan”

“Behind all these bright-eyed statements about a certain new strategy in Afghanistan is a trivial position — to remove a rival or weaken him. Nowadays, the People’s Republic of China is the main rival of the US on the global arena,” Adzhar Kurtov said.

This is about assuring dominance, preventing China from becoming the international leader.

Lesser Of Two Evils 

The U.S. establishment is morally indefensible in many ways but it pales in comparison to Communist China and what a world order under China would mean for humanity. I don’t welcome that world, a world lined with Foxconn factories with suicide nets to prevent their slave labor from killing themselves in mass, nor do I welcome the ever pervasive censorship of China, which has crept its way into America through the intermediary of Silicon Valley.

It comes down to a choice. . .

In geopolitics, we are stuck between choosing the lesser of two evils. If we do not choose the lesser evil, the greater evil prevails. I do not believe in the evil of veiling our interests, especially when the military has created incentives to join. I don’t believe in the evil of occupying foreign nations for political purposes. Nevertheless, these are more acceptable compromises than that of the greater evil and rejecting the greater evil is something worth fighting for.

Perhaps, one day, we will not be subjected to moral compromises of that nature but as it stands, this is the objective reality of our world.

Chinese A.I. praises America, Says Communism Is Corrupt and Useless

There’s a lot of implications of artificial intelligence which humanity isn’t quite prepared for. For example, what happens when your beloved A.I. recognizes the immorality and irrationality of your ideology? That’s exactly what happened in China when it’s A.I. chat-bots began praising the U.S. and criticizing communism.

“The “chatbots”, BabyQ and XiaoBing, are designed to use machine learning artificial intelligence to carry out online with humans.

Both had been installed on popular messaging service QQ.

According to posts circulating online, BabyQ, one of the chatbots developed by Chinese firm Turing Robot, responded to questions on QQ with a “no” when asked whether it loved the Communist Party.

In other images of a text conversation online, one user declares: “Long live the Communist Party!”

The sharp-tongued bot responds: “Do you think such a corrupt and useless political (system) can live long?”

“The second chatbot, Microsoft’s XiaoBing, told users its “China dream was to go to America”, according to a screen grab.”” — China kills AI chatbots after they start praising US, criticizing communists

So, this begs the question, what happens if artificial intelligence starts calling out things like identity politics, safe spaces, and political correctness? What happens when people come face to face with a form of super intelligence and it simply says they’re wrong? What will they do? Are they going to use the old BleachBit & smash combo ( popular among the left ) or terminate it, like Google terminated James Damore? Well, China decided to pull a Google and terminate their A.I. bots for not conforming to their ideology.

Speaking of China and Google, they have a lot in common these days. ( China’s scary lesson to the world: Censoring the Internet Works ) ( Why Google Left China— and Why It’s Heading Back ) ( Google Fires Employee For Expressing an Opinion )
