And in the process, they have also achieved some of the greatest advances in human history Most economists will tell you that China is now one of the countries at the top of the world order, and they do not do it through war, aggression, bombing other people or subversive activities. In my opinion, they pose a real threat to the United States and have an impact on the balance of the world.
Of course, those people in our country will not discuss this. All the people who talk about China are hawks who are willing to provoke war and talk about those decadent colonial manifestos that have been out of date Really, its too obvious to me. I dont think trump and his supporters preach isolationism, and it wont do us any good.
The reality that we have to accept is that global history has entered a different stage, not just a history dominated by the United States It has become a world trend to oppose the United States imposing influence, and China wishes to be the most important trading partner of every country on the earth, completely filling the gap of Western imperialism...
Americans simply dont understand that China has been colonized for about 108 years. They dont understand what the Hong Kong problem is. Its all related to the colonial history. You know what Darrell Morey, the general manager of the Rockets, said about Hong Kong before. I just want to say that he cant do this. I also called many players and said that dont be fooled into this by Morey. Its the same as saying that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction. Its also a propaganda strategy of (American politicians). I think the NBA and the players are on the right side of history on this issue. And in the past two years, Ive noticed that Chinese diplomats have been more quick and outspoken in refuting such propaganda by the United States.
I always think that history is the best way for us to interpret the present. If you have studied Chinese history, especially the history of modern colonization, you will know that the thinking they have been emphasizing is that they can never be ruled and controlled again. This can be said to be the political ideology that they have been instilling into future generations for almost a hundred years. The interests of the Chinese people have been occupied by other countries, and China has been controlled by other countries. China has lost its sovereignty and lost its connection with the history of the past thousands of years These [narratives] are their political thinking around the social structure, and we have to understand the challenge we face.
After Moreys Hong Kong incident in October last year, public opinion in both China and the United States exploded. I still remember that Steve Cole, who was criticized as a lackey by American politicians at that time, said that he had to learn more about Chinese history to make a judgment. Unexpectedly, West, who played under him before, had already learned it.
At that time, West also strongly supported LeBron, denouncing the American journalists who questioned the latter: you all want him to disclose the carefully designed arguments of those false narrative drivers who use these false pretexts to lead people to war.
His views on China have no suspense, and have been denounced as treason by some American netizens. Some people say that he is a potential enemy of the country. Others say that he sees the good of China because he has only been to Chinas big cities. Some even say that what he sees must be the false image that China deliberately pretends to see.
In short, in the United States, West was basically called an idiot.
But the NBA community knows better than anyone who West is.
He has a good relationship with the walkers up and down, and the team reporter who once dealt with him described him as: West never talks nonsense. The walkers who had contact with him knew that he was one of the most mature players in the history of the team. At that time, everyone recognized him as an adult in the dressing room and the one who could deal with the media most
Whats more interesting is that when he was still playing with walkers, he always talked to people around him about how strong TJ Warren was. Because Warren had been in the eye of West in his early 10s and had been playing on his AAU team. They are close to each other as family members and have been in touch almost every day.
Pacers president Pritchard respects West as much as a team advisor, but west refused to be invited into management last year.
In the warriors, West is one of the first to reveal that there are internal problems in the team. He doesnt mean to do things, but to be realistic and fair.
First of all, he said after winning the championship in 2018, which will not affect the teams competitive state; secondly, he did not disclose any dressing room secrets, and the warriors players also agreed. And until he retired, he didnt talk much about the warriors internal problems.
He said he just wanted to show that the warriors seem to win easily, but they are not. He also predicted that it would be very difficult for the warriors to win three consecutive titles, and there would be injury problems. He got it all right.
After he left the warriors, team manager miles also expressed his feelings, saying that he was a rare tutor task in the dressing room. Well all miss David, the smartest teammate Ive ever had, he said
West loved reading since childhood. He was born into a working-class family. After entering the NBA, he saw the world of rich people for the first time. He said that he was eye opener, so he began to think and question the society. One of his uncles sold revolutionary pamphlets in New York during the civil rights movement in the 1960s and 1970s. After entering the NBA, he spent a lot of effort to build a large library at home, with books dating back to the ancient books published in the 1890s.
He likes to read serious media articles, claiming to spend at least three to four hours a day reading. His favorite reading subjects are black and African history, and he has also read books on philosophy and psychology, as well as works by Plato and Nietzsche.
When he was in college, he once made a research report on the legalization of marijuana in the United States, and now there is still a video about his explanation on the stage on the Internet, so that when he is interviewed by all NBA teams, the management will ask him about his views on marijuana.
He knew from a very young age that basketball / sports would not be the ultimate pursuit of his life.
Basketball is just a game. Ive been trying to find more spiritual sustenance from this game. He said, there is life beyond basketball, and the whole world. Maybe its about my comfort zone. Anyway, Im not a person who is content with the status quo. I wont be afraid of the world, and I wont flinch in the face of new things.
Under the guidance of such a philosophy, it is certainly no accident that West has formed his current political stance. His position in the political spectrum of the United States may be unfamiliar to the Americans themselves, that is, the black left.
The so-called African American Left is basically opposite to the white left and is part of black conservatism. There are many black left stars in NBA, such as Wilt Chamberlain, Karl Malone, Greg Anthony, etc.
With LeBron as a reference ruler, although he has supported Hillary Clinton, he can not say that he is completely white left. But LeBron is certainly not as hard core as the black left - in fact, most black people are similar to LeBron, not taking extreme positions, belonging to the state of swing in the middle.
But west is more determined than LeBron. In fact, his program left lens (produced by black agenda report) is the main propaganda position of the black left political faction in the United States.
The screenshot of the program page shows that it is mainly about political speeches
As early as in the black civil rights movement in the 1960s, the black left once took Marxism Leninism and Mao thought as the standard. The leader of the Black Panther Party even visited Beijing and was received by the state leaders. Therefore, the affinity of this political faction to China is deeply rooted.
In the United States, some people call them radical, others say they are black socialists. In short, they are not recognized by mainstream politics.
They also hate the deceptive rhetoric of American mainstream politics (such as Trumps speech at the foot of the presidents hill, and the Democratic Partys various show offs in protest activities), as well as capitalist greed under deception. They think that the two mainstream parties are just two wings of the same bird.
They even feel that Bernie Sanders, who has been denounced as a communist by the mainstream, is not tough enough, saying that his foreign policy is still imperialism, and his equality policy of caring for the bottom is far from enough to help the United States achieve real social justice.
Bernie Sanders, a communist in American Politics
Such arguments are reasonable, but also cynical. Just as West hated social platforms controlled by technology giants and the U.S. government, he couldnt do without them.
He describes the hypocrisy of politicians who support black affirmative action on social media: people on twitter want black people to vote for hidden racism, because open racism is the worst...
He also believes that China is a more democratic society than the United States. He forwarded a report on Chinas domestic poll data, pointing out that 73% of Chinese believe that they live in a democratic society, while only 49% of Americans feel that they live in a democratic society. Its time to stop educating China and focus on our own problems.
We can talk about hot topics one by one, but the fundamental issues never change. The common aspiration of mankind should be to shape a just system and a peaceful world. Everyone wants a piece of Colin capenick, but no one understands what hes trying to convey, he said. Its about peace and justice. We want a system that is fair to all people. We want them to live in their own reality and let their social value orientation be guided by peace. This is what the world wants.
If you dont succeed, you will become benevolent. The United States has reached the critical point, and it has to face the reality of itself, rather than trying to express itself all the time. What we are, what we have always been. We have to make a radical change for the future of our children. Without complete change, all discussions are in vain.
In fact, in any era, there are calls for subversive change. Its just that in the current environment, Wests point of view has been unexpectedly magnified (although in the United States, its a flower in the wall, and a fragrance outside the wall).
Under the stimulation of Freuds death, more and more people feel that American society has reached the critical point of indestructibility. However, no individual has been able to show such great wisdom to guide people to achieve benign change.
Most of the politicians have done nothing but scratch the surface. The Republican Party was infuriated by the fact that New York City Mayor Beth Sihao cut down the $1 billion budget of the New York police department. However, the black left was still not satisfied. He said that the Democratic Party was pretending because the New York City Government owed a huge debt of more than $90 billion. Originally, all departments were reducing the budget. He deliberately stressed that the reduction of the police department budget was just a reward for Bai Sihao to earn a good reputation for himself.
West also said: the depth of change needed in this country is far beyond what an athlete can contribute. We need institutional change, and those problems are embedded in the walls and halls of power. This requires an overall change in ideology.
But in the United States at this stage, Wests words are basically casting pearls before swine.
Of course, with his accumulated wisdom, he is still qualified to give some immature suggestions to the current athletes.
West specially mentioned that Hadden, who wore a mask supporting the police not long ago, was so politicized that he did not know the depth of the act, which caused countless curses. This is the consequence of ignorance. If you dont understand, shut up first. If you dont understand, dont let those who do know use you as a gunner. He said.
