Opened up shop at Minds.com
If it has not been too apparent, I have not spent a good deal of time here at the China Daily BBS the last couple months. Not going to lie, I have grown curious about another website called Minds.com, which has been quietly gathering a good amount of content creators and quite a good sized audience. It has been interesting to see the reaction of some of those there to my archive of old articles that I have published over the years at various sites, like this BBS. Suffice to say ...

Where Does Imagination Exist in a Starless Night Sky?
What is the limit of human imagination? Depending on the era and location, some would say, “It is as limitless as there are stars in the sky.” It was a saying that I took to heart as a child. More often than naught during night trips, I would stare out of my back window, looking as the various constellations, occasioning glimpsing a ‘shooting star’. While my father did not care much for ‘too much stargazing,’ he did understand the underlying sentiment. ...

The Question of Term Limits
What defines a nation - its people, or its leadership? It is a question that many of a country through human history have faced, just as much as today. If a leader rules with a ‘lifetime fiat’, is that nation merely an extension of the leader’s will? What happens to that nation once that leader passes away, or actually steps down? These are the sort of questions that come up when looking at the developments that have happened in Russia with Vladimir Putin. ...

The Trouble with Sin Taxes is the Need to Find New Sins…
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 It has been a while since I posted an article here at the China Daily. I would like to say it has been because I have not been able to find my muse, but that would be a very big lie. Events have been occurring in my real life at work that have reminded me too much of past shows of ‘Corporate Armageddon’ that I have had a front row seat for the performance. It is times like this where peo ...

A Reminder from the Past about the Long March of Innovation
A few weeks ago, the editors at the China Daily asked if I could quickly type up an article about China’s ability to innovate. They touched on items such as e-commerce, mobile payments, artificial intelligence, and so on – and were hoping I could comment on my opinion on how China will advance as the 21st Century moves on. However, at the time I was in the middle of getting some very complicated designs completed at my place for the project that I am working on, and that I ...

CNN Can No Longer Use the ‘Moral High Ground’ with P.R. China
For those ‘old China Hands’/American Expats that have been posting on P.R. Chinese websites over the years, there has always been a bit of amusement about how Western Media Outlets, like CNN, like to take the ‘Moral High Ground’ when it attempts to address P.R. Chinese officials about affairs of state. Whether the occasion or incident, there is this attitude that the powers of Beijing are not ‘righteous’ enough when dealing with the citizens of P.R. China, to which a theme of ...

Yellow Man’s Burden - The Limits of Power Projection Shown with the Belt and Ro
Some time ago, in the forums of the China Daily BBS, there was a request from the management for folks like myself to take some time to talk about the ‘Belt and Road Initiative’. It is a rather ambiguous project for the powers to be in Beijing, much like the ambiguous projects the old powers to be in London, Paris, and elsewhere had over the last couple of centuries – an attempt to establish a secure trade network with the world (i.e. the Suez Canal, the Transcontinental Railroad ...

Follow up to My "Observation" Articles - Then a Question to the Reader
As you can see from the attached graphic below - the official election results for the County of Cook for the April 7, 2017 elections (http://www.cookcountyclerk.com/elections/results/Documents/SummaryReport40417.pdf )have recordedthat the 4th position for the Hinsdale Library Board was elected with only23 Votes. While I did predict that the position would be had for less that 400 votes in my previous article - I am not too happy to see the threshold t ...

Observation – the 3rd Responsibility of Citizenship, Part 5
If there are two things that can be the bane of any form of government, or two of the leading causes for its destruction, they are citizen apathy and government bureaucracy. It does not matter if the government type is a democracy, a republic, a people’s republic, an oligarchy, a monarchy, or a simply a “strongman” – if the day to day operations are too confusing, and citizens no longer fell bothered to participate/interact – then that government that is supposed to serve is go ...
