Is the Conflict in Hong Kong Citizen Initiated Action or a CIA Cyber Trade War?

How do we stop trade wars influencing government policy in respect of the government/business nexus and unquestioned belief that economic growth is power and stability?  How do we prevent citizens from being caught in the cross fire in yet another war based not on defence but business interests?  This issue becomes more complex when we look at acquisitions, cross ownership, controlling shares in businesses that keep changing with powerful global players. The world becomes a chess board, less about nation states and more about retaining or expanding control and influence. This is the nature of economics.  

So how do we bring in accountability and ensure real democratic processes of checks and balances?   A central intelligence question!

It is alleged by a few articles that the CIA was involved in fanning the flames for the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong and China.  I have included from the Sydney Morning Herald article a few links refering to Donald Trump and the trade war, which in my view, is the real war behind this uprising.  

From a peace perspective what I see is two countries and one system of totalitarianism enshrined in government and totalitarianism enshrined in corporations influencing government.  I speak about the law of attraction as a universal law where like attracts like, what you think about you bring about through focus as we influence events by our attention and intention.  It is evident in the dispute between China and the US that like attracts like. in this case a domination agenda appears to be the purpose of this clash, a fight for supremacy and it is a mirror.  The 5G issue is considered critical from the perspective of controlling the IT global grid (matrix), data gathering, automation and artificial intelligence in cyber wars as the perceived theatre of war. The Chinese government according to the US military are ahead of the US in 5G and there is concern that the leader position technologically means the domination of networks, apparently there is no second place in this war game. So this is a power struggle.  

What concerns me always is the people are used in these conflicts as pawns in counter terrorism strategies to destabilise the perceived ‘enemy’ rather than working on transitioning our world to cooperation and peace. In an enlightened world we would be looking at changing the rules (laws) to ensure truly free trade that benefits people, changing the United Nations (free of corruption), a world free of corruption, stopping foreign government interference in sovereign domestic policy and curtailing corporate control (acquisitions, assets) preventing corporate  concentration of wealth as this influences governments.  This is another line of control.

There is much work to be done if real peace is the final goal out of this emerging global conflict which is inflamed by vested interests whom do not have a genuine desire for democracy on any side.  Often playing both sides against each other. For other interests over and above government are interested in the collapse of both. This is how a separation consciousness can be controlled and greed is the tool that moves people to take sides rather than a neutral third party.  

It is the people who want democracy believing it is freedom but what we are seeing in the West is the loss of freedom of speech, weakening or criminalising whistleblowers, data gathering breaching privacy, profiling and tracking citizens, the weakening and corporatisation of the social welfare system and the privatisation of public assets (without distributing yields) which weakens the voice of the people as they are not able to hold government to account in the public interest.  So behind the facade of so-called democracy is another control paradigm that works along the lines using silence weapons for quiet wars. I cannot verify the legitimacy of this paper below but it raised my awareness to an end game possible scenario that both the US and China may wish to contemplate in respect of the implications of 5G. If accurate, it is a zero sum game where no-one wins.  Why zero sum? The real goal of life is freedom to be who you are, no-one can experience this is a Brave New World scenario. All become imprisoned as paranoia rules. Is this what is truly wanted on both sides? What is the fear driving the cyber wars? How to resolve the conflicts for the higher good of citizens?

So rhetoric about a genuine belief in sovereignty and democracy is held up to the light of further questions. I have concerns about media spin and third party countries involving themselves in global disputes because they are compromised by powerful countries rather than operating as sovereign.  There is the more proactive option of offering to mediate disputes to ensure bullying is not the modus operandi of power as this becomes a fight to the bottom.  

Be mindful that all this conflict is happening as the ice caps melt. Always my mind turns to where all resources would be going if we had peace and social harmony as the real balancing point (justice) in the world where scales are rebalanced, Efforts and resources would be directed towards restoring the natural balance e.g. planting forests (CO2 extraction), living sustainably (decentralised eco villages and smaller communities not mega cities), ecological marketing (not infinite growth marketing) as this encourages expenditure on needs and wants in harmony with nature. The focus would be on directing consumption towards ecological balance not IT markets to sell more products as the last boom as they are addicted to wealth and power not transformation.  This is the bottom line that no-one wants to examine as public attention is on trade wars with the same rhetoric that no longer works.  

The ecological collapse and human imbalance are the real wars going on in the background.  It is the war against ourselves where no-one wins as we are in denial about who we are, what we truly want and the empowerment of citizens to live to their full potential.  It is not about endless trade wars it is about infinite possibility when we recognise real freedom is to know thyself and be true.  Instead we continue on economic treadmills of consumption (growth), then look at population issues rather than ecological footprint per person.  We consume too much and this false abundance is what fuels population. This combined with the lack of education of women and the inequality there.  

We have not learned that until we come into homeostasis with the planet (balance) the wars that play out in the media, in the cyber reality (fake) and on the ground are distractions from real transformative change. The real disruption would be to business-as-usual and financial concentration as we move to disperse more fairly incomes that send demand and supply signals empowering a renewable system that preserves not only the planet but restores balance between all cultures so that we can learn to live together as one.  The key to whether this is happening will be around wellbeing and happiness. These are the signals of alignment. Pleasure and staving off the feeling of ‘not enough’ are the signals of unconsciousness, identifying with material wealth and poverty.  Inequality is the imbalance, powerlessness is the felt imbalance and to know thyself and be true becomes the empowerment that transforms our world. It is nonviolent, principled and peaceful in the true sense. We have barely begun to understand yet an awakening is occurring globally.

What could be considered the ‘good’ coming out of this US/China trade war and the disruption of Hong Kong is a global movement for real democracy (freedom) whereby those observing around the world can see that they have real power when they come together peacefully rejecting totalitarianism (visible and silent). They are learning to take back their power to recognise they are not weak and for the sake of the future of their children. Then communities can start to focus on turning this Titanic (sinking ship) around from the biggest fastest ship to a lifeboat that floats the whole of humanity and sail into a renewable future that will look very different to the one we are living through. That is my vision.

This statement below is an example of the voice of real democracy,.It is about true freedom of speech that does not seek to criminalise, demonise, bully but truly allows those we disagree with express their viewpoint. Interestingly the quote is from a woman not Voltaire as thought. I see the woman who holds the scales as lady justice. The clashing up of opinions is what expands civilisation…

 

I Disapprove of What You Say, But I Will Defend to the Death Your Right to Say It

Voltaire? François-Marie Arouet? S. G. Tallentyre? Evelyn Beatrice Hall? Ignazio Silone? Douglas Young? Norbert Guterman?

Dear Quote Investigator: Would you please explore a famous saying that apparently has been misattributed to Voltaire:  I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

The words above reportedly originated with an English author named Evelyn Beatrice Hall in 1906. There is a different version in French, but I do not think it is authentic:  Monsieur l’abbé, je déteste ce que vous écrivez, mais je donnerai ma vie pour que vous puissiez continuer à écrire.

Here is one rendering in English:
Monsieur l’abbé, I detest what you write, but I would give my life to make it possible for you to continue to write.

What do you think?

Quote Investigator: Voltaire was the pen name of François-Marie Arouet who died in 1778. The earliest evidence of the saying appeared many years afterwards in the 1906 book “The Friends of Voltaire” by S. G. Tallentyre which was the pseudonym of historian Evelyn Beatrice Hall.  Her book described an incident involving the French philosopher Claude-Adrien Helvétius who in 1758 published a controversial work titled “De l’esprit” (“On the Mind”). The book was condemned in the Parlement of Paris and by the Collège de Sorbonne. Voltaire was unimpressed with the text, but he considered the attacks unjustified. After Voltaire learned that the book by Helvétius had been publicly incinerated he reacted as follows according to Hall: 1

Another quote that I find interesting is:  “the love you withhold is the pain you carry”.

This article below is from the Sydney Morning Herald and reports the CIA involvement.  I have added an additional link for public comment regarding alleged CIA involvement in the Tianamen Square conflict. 

One further message to the CIA/FBI/5 Eyes surveillance network/Chinese Communist Party/business interests: 

Those who express counter views are not the enemy they are teachers, This is part of the rebalancing of nature as we live in a system of duality. The central intelligence question is:

Are you learning from critical opinions or suppressing/harming those you disagree with? 

When you discover the wise agreement you will win/win. It is my desire you win/win.

What needs to be discussed in the public interest is:

  1. are there agent provocateurs in the background stirring the flames of protest to serve other interests?
  2. Are activists/opposition funded and trained to disrupt governments?
  3. What is real democracy?  Should it be encouraged through dialogue, the vote and peaceful community gatherings?
  4. Do we in the West live in real democracies?
  5. What is the real underlying conflict map of the conflicts?  How can we resolve these conflicts peacefully to ensure civilians are not placed in harms way?
  6. To what extent does business/powerful interests influence violent and subversive conflict in our world undermining the will of the people?
  7. How do we help governments to deeply integrate that serving the public serves them?
  8. How do we move away from control towards the hard work of resolving conflict?

Chinese state media blames CIA for violent Hong Kong protests

Beijing: China’s official newspaper The China Daily has accused the CIA of being behind “extreme acts” by Hong Kong protesters in an editorial warning Beijing has the capability to bring Hong Kong under control.

The editorial on Friday came as the Chinese propaganda machine stepped up the rhetoric against protesters this week, after the Chinese national emblem was defaced at Beijing’s office in Hong Kong during protests dispelled with tear gas and rubber bullets on Sunday.

Amid the wave of patriotism, the Chinese consulate in Brisbane issued a statement praising students who responded to “anti-China and secessionist protests” at the University of Queensland on Thursday, the nationalist Global Times newspaper reported.

The consulate said it supported the “spontaneous patriotic behaviour of Chinese students” and “firmly opposes any words and deeds intended to split China”.

On Friday, China Daily wrote about the situation in Hong Kong: “It does not take Sherlock Holmes to conclude that the CIA has been – to whatever degree removed – behind the more extreme acts [of protesters].”

It said that the mainland has “so far remained restrained despite all the provocations, does not mean that it has no capability to bring the situation in Hong Kong under control.”

On Friday a protest was held at Hong Kong’s international airport.

Global Times ran a front page story predicting “large scale violence” in Yuen Long in the New Territories on Saturday, with one headline warning “PLA involvement debated to end turmoil in HKSAR”.

 

Police refused to authorise a planned protest in Yuen Long against Triad gangs on Saturday, that is expected to go ahead regardless. There has been a wide backlash in Hong Kong to the violent attacks by white-shirted men in Yuen Long that left 40 people with injuries on Sunday night.

“Debate is growing over whether the central government should deploy the People’s Liberation Army to end the chaos as soon as possible,” the Global Times story said.

But the veiled threats in Chinese media that the PLA could be deployed contradict statements from the Hong Kong government, which on Wednesday dispelled rumours the PLA would be used to guard the Legislative Council and other key buildings as “totally unfounded”.

 

In Hong Kong, New Territories North Acting Regional Commander Tsang Ching-fo said police will be deployed to Yuen Long to prevent violence on Saturday, and conceded police handling of attacks on July 21 didn’t meet public expectation.

Umbrella movement founder Joshua Wong said the Global Times was encouraging mainland Chinese people to travel to Yuen Long ahead of the planned protest, after it published an article that suggested Yuen Long egg rolls were the best souvenir for mainland tourists going to Hong Kong.

Global Times editor-in-chief, Hu Xijin, argued the PLA garrison shouldn’t be used as “Hong Kong’s police back-up” and the Chinese mainland needed to be patient.

People’s Daily had earlier in the week delivered a stern condemnation on its front page of Sunday’s graffiti attack on the national emblem as “openly challenging the authority of the central government and touching the bottom line of the ‘One Country, Two Systems’ principle.”

 

On Friday a Hong Kong appeal judge overturned the convictions of two police who had been sentenced to jail for assaulting a protester during the 2014 Umbrella movement protests. But five police officers were returned to jail for the attack, with sentences reduced.

Awakening from the Dream of Powerlessness

This is the song of awakening from powerlessness.  It comes through struggle, facing fear and allowing life to transform us.  It does indeed follow as day follows night.

The video about this poem is below.

Awakening from the Dream of Powerlessness

 

Freedom of speech is to speak without punishment in freedom,

A civil society Q and A discussing perspectives, angles, viewpoints,

It is a forum enabling each to challenge, question and share wisdom,

Without reprisal legal, physical, covert or brutal force,

It is to respect differences in a democracy of contrasting colours,

For the full spectrum is not dominance but allowance,

It is to make a space for diversity as life is shape changing,

It is the sum of the parts creating a greater wholistic reality,

For as we clash it up we see more than self interest

as new horizons are emerging.

 

From conflict we learn that the world is not in our image,

As each perspective is a point of light albeit a unique experience,

We recognise power is not control but fear seeking to take control as it is out of control,

We feel an infinite spirit rising to meet each challenge with courage,

As fearsome times call upon heroism as true leaders are the phoenix rising from the ashes,

For every ONE is a hero in waiting,

Every ONE has the power to choose,

For we can cower in a corner terrorised by imagined media spin or we can question the author of fearful stories and learn to rewrite our own.

 

Repression is the messenger who comes to challenge powerlessness in the masses,

For apathy invites creeping control as you say nothing to exploitation or injustice,

You don’t want the hassle so just comply – you seldom ask why?

 

Powerlessness invites the bully who is seeking your power as implied rights are meaningless,

Fines, taxes, restrictions, laws are the tools tyranny uses to finance power as you will pay without question,

You will do the right thing, be a good person, not rock the boat as life is too busy to resist,

So you plug into the contrived matrix of technology disconnecting from life,

Your eyes fixed on controlled media feeds, ads, videos, texts as addiction to need is the greed,

You walk past the homelessness ignoring the plight of others for they made their bed you say,

To opt out is easier then to confront the social malaise requiring a response,

Each seeks distraction from pain as there is no time for community,

Yet until you face the pain life will bring you more to test your mettle,

For peace is not appeasement,

The wolf coming in sheep’s clothing is of our own making from a higher perspective,

Democracy is not a given it came from hard won battles in his story,

For the projection of power is the demon we must confront peacefully,

To be the change you wish the world to see is to live by example.

 

Therefore,

If you want respect give it to all,

If you want democracy live it fully,

If you want inclusivity invite all others into your world without fear or favour,

If you want freedom of speech then speak up and demonstrate it in action,

For as you step into the future world you imagine you create it,

For you always had power to create fear or love,

And this is the power to choose in every moment,

The universal democracy is to decide and then select the future you desire,

For each thought is a vote (choice),

Each vote co-creates what will be (natural selection),

And what will be will set you free from revolving door conflicts and endless wars,

For we must resolve the past for ‘good’,

We must face the violence that financed our way of life,

We must turn off the television or iPhone and start to dialogue with our neighbours,

We must unplug from the matrix and find the real Zion,

For peace on earth is an inner journey homeward bound,

The demons, the devils run around in our minds as we give them power by focus,

FEAR is False Evidence Appearing Real,

For it only has power when you imagine it is true power.

 

Yet what if fear is untrue an illusion designed to dominate you?

What if we question our thoughts about imagined realities?

Why not do ‘The Work’ to set yourself free?

What if we stop imagining the worst possible scenarios and start to envisage the world we truly want to see?

What if we ignore the facts and dream weave a new world without order?

For this will surely come to pass as night follows day,

For one cannot bear false witness to any other when the truth sets you free,

And the tyrant is the mirror reflecting back to us what we refuse to own,

for when we take responsibility for all of it we have the power to change what we fear,

For what we see in the world is US in fear believing it is out there,

To de-escalate fear one must face our childhood wounds as we were told no, put that down, let it go, do as I say and frightened into compliance not freedom,

We were not guided to explore yes, to learn from consequences, to make mistake, take risks and to fall over,

When we fall over we learn to get up again,

This is the true resilience we are invited to explore,

When we hurt ourselves we learn to heal ourselves without chemicals,

When we break the rules we learn why rules existed for we can re-write new rules,

Yet the rules of life are not to tidy your room but allow a person to grow naturally,

It is not to fearfully control what is said but to listen deeply to the protest coming from pain,

For s/he is me reaching out for clarity.

 

So as I write out of my own freedom of speech,

I feel for a wisdom that is perennial and eternal,

I see that life is infinite possibility,

And that life is truly good no matter appearances.

 

The yin vs the yang seek to divide and separate rather than allow harmony to restore homeostasis,

Apparent chaos creates another yin/yang somewhere else as chaos theory self-replicates,

The dark is the light and the light is the dark reflecting the mirror of self-awareness awakening,

One creates the other as the challenge is the test,

So be a light until the darkness but curse it not,

For it is the wise teacher not the wolf,

It is the friend in disguise scaring you to speak up or shut down,

As always you are at choice,

For death is not an ending but a new beginning,

And this system is dying to live,

It has traversed it’s used by date as it is no longer working,

Artificial Intelligence and automation are desperate attempts to keep the old illusion going,

Yet this story is coming to an end,

Albeit a conclusion,

For security and power were never the End Game,

It was to know yourself and be true,

It was to get the joke in the end not the punch line,

For we will awaken from yet another nightmare to the dawning of a new day,

For as the dawn breaks through the dark,

REAL HOPES dissolve the mist to allow a new day dawning as we are yawning,

And you are not alone in this struggle as the butterfly must break free from the cocoon,

The crystalis is by design,

Transformation is metamorphous dawning,

So allow the struggle,

Allow the fear,

Allow change to fall like the ripe fruit,

As your happy destiny is unavoidable,

As day follows night,

We are waking up from a long sleep to realise the dream was never real,

For this is the sacred seal opened at last,

As we begin to live again,

In a uni-verse of higher octaves,

To enjoy the harmonic convergence of a renewable life.
