Chinese Government, the World Leader in Democide, Recommends US Implement Gun Restrictions Laws

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

Chinese Paper Says U.S. Should Learn from China, Restrict Guns, Protect Rights:
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-usa-guns/chinese-paper-says-u-s-should-learn-from-china-restrict-guns-protect-rights-idUSKCN1G703W

The United States should learn from China and “genuinely” protect human rights by restricting gun ownership, an editorial in a widely read state-run Chinese newspaper said on Friday.

The editorial in the Global Times newspaper was published after a massacre at a high school in Florida last week, in which 17 students and staff were killed, reignited a long-running debate about gun control in the United States.

My Commentary: Oh, the irony! The Chinese “Republic” is responsible for the largest #democide on record, in the last century, with a body count of about 70 million victims. Communism is one of the most murderous forms of government known to man. But, hey… it’s not RACIST like NAZISM, so… no big deal!

The Pathology of Political Progressivism

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, after I posted a quote shared by an acquaintance…

Rayn:

“Political Progressivism in the USA is an ideology that currently holds it to be an egregious wrong to refer disparagingly to women but considers it hunky-dory to kill them and their children with drone rockets. The evidence in this regard seems to me to be a matter of record and beyond dispute.”

~Robert Higgs

“But, Obama dropped *humanitarian* bombs on the innocent civilians of Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, Syria and Somalia! Plus, democrats actually welcome any survivors of our ‘aid’ to come and live in America! Unlike those racist Republicans, the left cares about refugees!”

Ryan H.: I enjoyed what you added to the post. Nice work Rayn.

The Danger of Engaging in Perpetual War

As I scrolled through my Facebook memories, I discovered the following link, which I originally posted to my own wall in August of 2016, and decidedly re-shared it, while adding a commentary…

Our Greatest National Security Threat? Perpetual War:
https://www.commondreams.org/views/2016/08/12/our-greatest-national-security-threat-perpetual-war

(William Astore) The United States is now engaged in perpetual war with victory nowhere in sight.  Iraq is chaotic and scarred. So, too, is Libya. Syria barely exists. After 15 years, “progress” in Afghanistan has proven eminently reversible as efforts to rollback recent Taliban gainscontinue to falter. The Islamic State may be fracturing, but its various franchises are finding new and horrifying ways to replicate themselves and lash out. Having spent trillions of dollars on war with such sorry results, it’s a wonder that key figures in the U.S. military or officials in any other part of America’s colossal national security state and the military-industrial complex (“the Complex” for short) haven’t spoken out forcefully and critically about the disasters on their watch.

My Commentary: Not exactly rocket science, and yet, it still remains an ever-elusive concept to most, somehow…
