Mr. Fan Jianchuan and his Crap Museums

This blog is a response to an article entitled “A Chinese Mogul Conjures Up The Cultural Revolution,” which appeared in The Wall Street Journal {WSJ, (Sat./Sun., July 28-29, 2012 edition)” authored by a Mina Choi.  There are a number of reasons why I have decided to write about this article:

  1. It points out four of the main problems facing China:
    1. Class disparity.
    2. Ignorance of history.
    3. Lack of a unique culture.
    4. Lack of free will and independence from authoritarian politicians.
  2. Although I don’t go into great depth in this blog posting, discussing these four main points (in a cursory manner) allows me to point out why China will never even closely approach the greatness the U.S. had unless major changes are made there.  I’ll go into detail concerning this in another blog posting.
  3. It provides a transition into another WSJ article that appears in the same edition.

First I want to say something about The WSJ.  My take on this publication is that despite the fact that it contains on average much more useful information than oh about 99% of the other garbage out there referred to as newspapers my belief is it is primarily a disinformation tool.  Routinely, this rag espouses all sorts of misinformation (primarily on foreign affairs) and if you rely on it to give you the real deal about the on-goings say in the Middle East (or elsewhere for the matter) then you are a ra-tard.  For those people still in the dark I suggest you look at alternative news sources such as Russia Today for example or any other number of news sources that are European on just plain non-mainstream (e.g. The Drudge Report).  This is by the way, why I cancelled my subscription to this publication long ago.

In the article Mr. Fan is quoted as stating “I want to build a museum of farmers and workers, a museum of private enterprises and a museum of capitalism.”  Sorry to break the news to you Mr. Fan but to my knowledge the latter two have never existed in your country (at least in recordable history {to my knowledge}).  In China (at best) the only form of capitalism and private enterprise is what might be termed “chrony capitalism.”  My belief is the 99.9 % of Chinese today (such as yourself) who are well off have made their fortunes in accordance to what Mr. Obama said {i.e. they didn’t do it themselves but had help (from well-connected communist politicians)}.  I challenge you or anyone else who is wealthy in China to prove otherwise and it is the main reason why the class disparity is so high in China and why the common people despise individuals such as yourself.  The sad fact is that the true greatness of the U.S. was built upon the principals of pure capitalism where even the least connected individual with no resources could through the sweat of his/her brow build a business and make something of themselves.  As time has progressed the economy in the U.S. has become decidedly fascist capitalistic in nature and as a result we have seen our labor force and factories outsourced to third world slave pits such as your country.  Again, I intend on writing in depth about this point in another blog posting.

Likewise Mr. Fan, when was the last time a farmer in China actually owned their own property?  During my travels in China I have noticed that regardless of where I go your country is a polluted mess.  Filthy does not provide an adequate description.  One of the main reasons for this is that people lack a direct (long-lasting) relationship with the property they lease from your government.  Although, I’ll have a lot more to say about this the fact is that if your country was to grant true private ownership of land I can almost guarantee this situation would change overnight.

Ms. Choi points out that Mr. Fan’s complex opened up initially with museums about the Second Sino-Japanese War and then the final years of WWII.  I’d be curious as to whether any of Mr. Fan’s museums pays homage to the many American GI’s who fought and bled fighting against the Japanese in Burma, China, and other parts of Asia?  What truly disturbs me is the hypocrisy displayed by many Chinese.  On the one hand they would have you believe they harbor no racism towards anyone; however, their hatred towards other Asians (especially the Japanese not to mention Taiwanese) alone is quite apparent should you spend any time with these people.  Is it unfounded?  Well, not necessarily given the atrocities the Japanese committed but for their relatives who escaped the commies most assuredly it is.  Still, I find it interesting that the Chinese use so many Japanese products and their men in many instances prefer Japanese women.  One common saying in China once was “American house, German car, and Japanese wife.”

Possibly one of the most disturbing trends I see in China is the open promotion of Mao.  Even the most casual student of history knows that this man alone is ultimately responsible for the murder of as many as 80 million Chinese.  He is also responsible for the destruction of true Chinese culture.  Yet, the bulk majority of young Chinese today have no idea of the atrocities committed by Mao and how he played a major role in impeding China from becoming a great nation.  Even those who have benefited from the evil this man did are in fact losers and they have no true allegiance to China.  My guess is Mr. Fan’s Mao museums don’t mention any of these facts and again I’ll have more to say on the subject at a later date.  Maybe the most sickening thing is Ms. Bok-Choi doesn’t even mention a single one of these facts.  My guess is her name is a misspelling (or parody) of the word Mynah as she possibly enjoys parroting the greatness of the Cultural Revolution.  Or maybe more appropriately her last name should be La-Choi after the American abomination of Chinese food which is distinctly non-Chinese (i.e. a Cultural Revolution for Chinese food).  The sad fact is these lies prevent China from moving forward and they rob Chinese youth of the true riches that their real culture (buried by the communists) has to offer.  One unfortunate finding I keep running across in Chinese history is that it is a country that has never known true freedom.  Such a concept is completely alien to these people and is in fact the biggest obstacle to China achieving true splendor.  As a result, until this hurdle is removed China will never become a great country (like the U.S. once was) regardless of how much wealth, jobs, and factories are transferred to it.  Again, I’ll have much more to say about this in another blog posting.

According to Ms. Choi’s article Mr. Fan has stated “I want to build a museum of Uncorrupt and Honest Officials.”  Well Mr. Fan, I will point out that although “a fish rots from the head down” that just the same “a plant grows from the roots up” (yes I came up with this one).  If you truly have interest in the future of China (one that bears actual fruit worthy of eating) here are some suggestions, all of which pertain to what is called “leading by example.”

  1. For the remainder of your life, donate no less than 80% of all of your net income to causes that directly benefit the lowest tier classes of Chinese society.  Other than donating capital for the majority of these causes you will have no direct ties to them (i.e. you won’t run or own them) and generate no income from them.
  2. Be directly involved in the selection of beneficiaries to your wealth and if possible participate in some events as well (i.e. donate your time as well).  Should you do so you will become a folk hero to the Chinese people.
  3. During your daily routine as well as in your business dealings engage in no corruption yourself, regardless of how small it may be.  If you do so your example will shine and propagate among your people and they will no longer be known for their treachery and corruption.
  4. Do not tolerate employees who engage in corruption.
  5. Promote a “true Chinese identity” and by all means do not be afraid to resurrect aspects from true (i.e. old, pre-cultural revolution) traditional Chinese culture.
  6. Dare to speak out on the atrocities committed by those honored in your museum as no culture can advance when they live lives based on lies.
  7. Push for true reform in your government (I’ll post another blog on that later) as this is one of the main reasons why China is a stagnant country.  When they (such politicians) realize how they will benefit from such changes as well I’m certain a major transformation will occur.
