President's Message

Dear fellow Global Citizens

We have been calling for all countries in the world to join in for democracy, equality, human rights , justice and rule of laws and follow the peaceful Charter of United Nations.

Members of United Nations especially the developed nations should in all conscience, practise what they preached by examples.
All conflicts and disagreements should be solved by peaceful diplomacy and persistent dialogue. One of the most important elements of democracy, freedom of expression and rule of laws is to be able to agree and disagree and let the justice for all to be decided by fair rules of laws through various democratic Institutions that UN and other jurisdictions have set up etc. The Security Council of UN is the place to argue the case to start with. Coercion of United States and Allies , NATO, G7, G8, ASEAN, APEX, Russia and China Allies etc should be avoided. False propaganda will not solve the problem and only serve those who are blinded with power and greed. Similarly, any conflict will not be solved with war, be it domestic or cross countries disputes.

We are networks for peace and harmony; shared development and prosperity for all nations. If US and Allies are going to war with China on their claims of democracy, freedom, human rights and authoritarian politics, they could have gone to war with lots of ASEAN, East European, African countries, not to mention Russia and North Korea long before.

Great majority of Americans and the people of their allies if given a real free and democratic choice to decide if they wish to go to war with any country by a referendum , I believe and have been proven time and time again with polls that over 70% will tell them not to go to war with any country, let alone China and Russia combined with potential of a devastating suicidal war for humanity that will affect all fellow global citizens no matter where you reside.

Prove me wrong Mr Biden and any other leaders who advocate war?

Most ordinary people are kind and family people. They wish to have a peaceful, secured and happy life for themselves and their families. They enjoy shared harmony, development and prosperity regardless of their backgrounds, races, religions and cultures.

We all to be loved to be kind and simple ordinary people. And we are now a global family, trying to solve any pandemic, problems related with our economy, climate changes etc. Human makes mistakes but that can be amended through education, dialogue and proper, fair and just rules of laws. Since the establishment of United Nations in 1945, many countries and their peoples have shown by examples that we all can do it.

Yes, we can without any more war and live happily with one another in peace and harmony ; shared development and prosperity for all of us and not just some of us.

Take care ; stay safe and work for PEACE and all of the above aims and objectives.

Peaceful Co-existence in South China Seas is good for all of us..
The most reliable evidence of geopolitical change, ie. Australia-China relations, is the public announcement of community grants under the National Foundation for Australia China Relations (a DFAT initiative) for the improvement of Australia-China relations.
This pivotal change can play a role in diffusing the tensions in the South China Sea (SCS) and silence the war drums in the Asia Pacific – as peace in the region would bring economic prosperity for all.
In Australia, we are fortunate to have a daily blog started by Mr John Menadue AO, whose P&I journal articles have become the national household word and an alternative voice of reason / public conscience on many Australian public issues.
We can begin to tell the SCS stories with two articles written by Sam Bateman as follows:
The first article is "No need to rock the boat in the South China Sea" .https://johnmenadue.com/sam-bateman-no-need-to-rock-the-boat-in-the-south-
china-sea/| On 14 March 2018
In the wake of Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s visit to Washington, there has
been renewed pressure for Australia to undertake assertive freedom of navigation operations
(FONOPs) in the South China Sea. It has also been suggested that France and the United
Kingdom should undertake joint patrols in the South China Sea to push back against China.
The second article Understanding American Freedom of Navigation Operation (FONOP) in the South China Sea | https://johnmenadue.com/sam-bateman- understanding-american-freedom-of-navigation-operationfonop-in-the-south-china-
sea/ On 5 October 2018
The recent encounter between American and Chinese warships in the South China Sea could
be the fore-runner of more serious incidents unless both parties show more restraint.
Michael Lacey commented: Western, American and European — colonialism is strictly responsible for the current, incendiary sovereignty battle in the South China Sea. It’s the West that came up with most land borders – and maritime borders — of these states.
They attracted two readers' comments worth quoting below:
Vincent Cheok commented:: He quotes ex-Malaysia PM Mahathir who saw China (1) as having any territorial intent beyond what it saw as its ‘sea’ from antiquity, and that China had traded and related with its ASEAN neighbours for over 2000 years without conquering them and (2) China has always maintained that the navigation mercantile trade routes through the SCS will always be open and free, as in antiquity.
This is followed by two articles by Mark J Valencia first on 3 January 2021: US allies may tempt fate in South China Sea https://johnmenadue.com/us-allies-may-tempt-fate-
in-south-china-sea/

China is feeling increasingly cornered–both politically and militarily in the South China Sea.
The presence of US allies’ navies and in particular the joining of US FONOPs there will
exacerbate that sense of desperation and perhaps prompt a kinetic response from China.
They need to weigh carefully the consequences of tempting fate in the South China Sea.

The second article by Mark Valencia,19 Feb 2021, written after we have a new US

Diplomatic finesse in the offing? Possible modifications of Freedom of Navigation

President Biden.
Operations under Biden https://johnmenadue.com/diplomatic-finesse-in-the-offing-
possible-modifications-of-freedom-of-navigation-operations-under-biden/
For years the US has purposely conceptually conflated freedom of navigation for commercial
vessels with its claimed freedom for its military assets to threaten and probe weaknesses in its
opponents’ defences including those of China.
The moves and counter-moves in the SCS by two powerful players could dangerously end up
in a hot war and possibly a nuclear war with no winners. Solving the SCS conflicts among
the affected countries through pragmatism and diplomacy is the only safe way forward.
We Chinese Australians hope that Asian nations of the SCS, together with President Biden,
President Xi will work harmoniously to sort out their differences. We have hope after a
"friendly" pragmatic and diplomatic Lunar New Year exchanges between the two leaders
whose actions can influence the faith and well-being of the people in this planet. We also
hope Australia can play a positive peace-maker's role in the SCS which she can be very good
at.

President's Message

United we stand, divided we fall.
Voice of the Chinese Australians No 21 4 June 2021

Looking at this this topic: How does a Chinese person living in Western countries cope with seeing media that is almost 100% negative to China?, published in the American Quora blog , it is evident that the strain of living overseas as citizens (citizen by birth or acquired) of US, Canada, UK, Australia and NZ have much in common to share when their country’s relationship with China deteriorates spirally down to a frozen and fractured state.

In an answer given by Eric Lee on “Why do some overseas born Chinese support China?
she gave her experience living in New York which have many similarities in Australia. Her predicament is common to all ethnic Chinese diaspora communities living in the Five Eyes countries

If you believe in University of Chicago, Prof. John Mearsheimer (a recent CIS talk) on US-China relations, then one can understand why the US’s attitude to China. According to Mearsheimer, US will contain China with whatever means to prevent it from rising - just simply due to hegemon geopolitics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRlt1vbnXhQ,

Prof Mearsheimer’s theory is consistent with the Trump starting, the tariff (trade) war, tech war, cold war etc/ with China. In Canada, it escalated to the arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou and banning of 5G in Australia. Despite a change of Presidency from Trump to Biden, the policy remained.

The collateral damage to the Chinese living in the US, Canada and Australia is far more extensive than UK or New Zealand. In Australia, the rise of xenophobia and the unwillingness of Chinese Australians to speak up or even make moderating comments against the right-wing narratives of some political leaders and media is due to a fear of prosecution by the national security laws currently in place. These issues are potentially damaging our social cohesion internally and with mainstream white communities.

We, therefore as a community would wish to declare the following:
(1) We are loyal Australian citizens and acting in Australia’s national interest.
(2) We believe in democracy and freedom of speech.
(3) We also believe in our value system, the rule of law and the Westminster system of Government. “However, we also believe the Westminster system is not the only system that is just, truly democratic, and in the best interest of all nations in the world.”

(4) Being of Chinese origin, we are naturally empathetic towards the Chinese people, but we also act independently of the Chinese government or the CCP.
(5) We are a peace-loving community and wish to see a good relationship between Australia and China because we believe such relations would bring peace and prosperity to all in the Asia Pacific.

We are descendants of the Han civilization of more than 4,000 years and we are strongly linked to China by our culture and race but not politics or religion. It is only natural that we are empathetic to the Chinese people everywhere because we also accept and understand about the century of humiliation of China in the last century. We just want the ordinary Chinese people to be able to rise again with their dignity and heads high, and play their productive, responsible and contributive role in the world, no more no less. China is not a hegemon!

When we spoke well of China, please do not accuse, and belittle us as Panda Huggers, Reds or another other unwelcome stereotype. We just want peaceful coexistence and a prosperous future for our descendants. Our security Chief Mike Burgess said 99.9% of the diaspora community has got nothing to do with the CCP.

There are people who consider the CCP evil and the Chinese government as a totalitarian government. They are entitled to their views. Perhaps a better understanding of China and her history would make them less critical.

To those fellow Chinese who have an adverse view of the CCP, we respect your views and understand how and why you have these views. However, please remember when they attack a Chinese in public, they will not ask you whether you are from PRC, Taiwan, HK, Singapore, Malaysia or any SE Asian or English-speaking countries or whether you are pro- or anti-communists. You all look the same to them. Those who prostitute themselves thinking it could bring some favours are only deluding themselves. Racist’s motto - one size fits all. Hence, we need to be united in purpose as a group of overseas born Chinese living in Australia.

Do not despair, for there are countless millions of good people in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and NZ, who empathize with us and speak up for us. However, we must help ourselves before others can move to help us. Social cohesion and community harmony is a shared goal for these nations. We promote PEACE and shared humanity for all human races.

Almost one in five Chinese Australians say they have been physically threatened or attacked in the past year, according to a Lowy Institute survey released today.

President of the Chinese Australian Forum, Jason Li says the findings of the report are very concerning and calls for national leadership to tackle the rise of racism towards Chinese Australians.

“As Australia grapples with a more assertive China, we must ensure we do not empower racism or distrust against Chinese Australians who have been part of Australia society for centuries,” Mr Li.

“The Australian Chinese community is highly diverse in its places of origin, political views, languages and attitudes towards the PRC. It cannot be seen as a monolithic whole.

“Chinese Australians were always going to be sandwiched in geopolitical tensions with the PRC. How we manage the rising distrust towards 1.4 million of our fellow Australians will be a significant test of our multiculturalism and our values as an open, liberal society.

“We call for national leadership to tackle distrust and discrimination against Chinese and Asian Australians. We need to tell the stories of how Chinese Australians and other migrants have shaped our country to ensure these are part of our national stories. We need to urgently boost the representation of Asian Australians and other minorities in Australian leadership. Fundamentally, We need to assert that being Australian is something inclusive in which people of all backgrounds can find a sense of belonging.

“All institutions should have a diversity strategy that aspires for the organisation, and its leadership, reflects the makeup of the Australian community.

“Providing some reassurance is the finding that 7 out of 10 Chinese Australians feel a sense of belonging to Australia and are generally accepted as part of Australian society. This vindicates the strength of Australia’s multiculturalism that we need to celebrate and defend.

“Further 40 percent said they experienced support from the broader Aust community because of their Chinese heritage. And the overwhelming majority of Chinese Australians also considered Australia a good place”

A pivotal decision by PM Morrison can rekindle Australia China relations

Prof Chris Nyland article in John Menadue caught our attention when he wrote that “the share of Chinese students who have applied to study in Australia next year is 53% of all international students, a jump from 27% last year.

Australian universities may come to regret the end of the Trump presidency

By CHRIS NYLAND | On 25 November 2020

https://johnmenadue.com/australian-universities-may-come-to-regret-the-end-of-the-trump-presidency/

It was reported in the media that Chinese students were encouraged to go elsewhere other than Australia. However, these figures were backed up by the Mitchell Institute which reported that whilst the number of international students applied to study in Australia plummeted in 2021, the number of Chinese applicants rose proportionally higher.

Prof Nyland has given major reasons for the rise and they are summarized here (for details see the original article).

1. Chinese post-covid19 economy rebounded quicker than any country in the world and Australia has managed the pandemic well.

2. The Trump’s executive order in imposing stricter visa conditions in the US has compelled Chinese students to look elsewhere.

3. Chinese government continues to allow parents to decide where to send their children for overseas education and overseas graduate still gets premium salaries.

4. China continues to build a knowledge-based society and education is the best investment.

Prof Nyland has given good advice to our Australian education establishment and government which should take advantage of these reasons to restore the Australian education to its formal glory as a great export income earner. However, he did analyse the pro and con of towing the American line.

Following our numerous opinion pieces appealing for sensible and constructive diplomacy, we are pleased to see that there appeared to be some change in the geopolitical winds in the Australia-China relations. We hope this could be the start for the thawing of the frozen relationship for the following reasons:

1. The statements by our PM Morrison in London, reported in the SMH, are most welcomed by the 1.2 million Chinese Australians. Changes coming from the top of the Australian leadership will be very much appreciated and remembered by the Chinese Australian community.

"Happy coexistence": Scott Morrison offers China an olive branch in London speechhttps://www.smh.com.au/world/europe/happy-coexistence-scott-morrison-offers-china-an-olive-branch-in-london-speech-20201123-p56hae.html (24Nov2020)

Australia will not be "deputy sheriff" in US-China tensions, Morrison declares (SMH 23 Nov 2020)

https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/australia-will-not-be-deputy-sheriff-in-us-china-tensions-morrison-20201123-p56gzz.html

2. The signing of the RCEP by Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and 10 ASEAN nations is a good sign as we opinionated last Saturday. Its growth will eliminate poverty, generate shared responsibility and prosperity and most importantly ensuring peaceful development for all.

3. China bashing articles has been diminishing and the anti-China rhetoric has been toned down significantly.

However, action speaks louder than voice. We hope the return of the Chinese students and trade etc will stir PM Morrison into action. It could be the turning point of the Australia-China relations and its return to normalcy would guarantee a rapid post-covid19 economy recovery for Australia. Australia can be a great peace mediator and constructive diplomacy excels gunboat diplomacy anytime anywhere. Australia and China must now rekindle their past friendship and let the useful dialogue begins.

No place for any xenophobic propaganda in Australian society.

After watching a video clip of Alan Jones broadcast on. Skynews “Australia should ‘take back the land’ from China as damage’, my initial reaction of anger turned into sadness that the country of my adoption has gone so far and deep in hurting its citizens of Chinese descent for no logical reasons at all.

Alan Jones has surpassed all extreme racial commentators in Australia, including Pauline Hanson, Clive Hamilton, Geoff Blainey and some other Australian media, for spreading hatred and racial stereotyping against China and Chinese Australians. His flawed understanding about COVID19 and his conclusions drawn are so irresponsible and irrational, that it has attracted a cohort of interviewers, viewers and encouraged their blatant expression of racism of the worse kind that can be unleashed on-line and on the street with collateral damage to the 1.2 million Chinese and Asian Australians. Such damages include racial public hate speech and violence that ASIO has warned us recently.

Alan Jones has outdone even President Trump on this occasion. At least, Mr Trump, the most powerful man in the western world, and who made the remarks about “the Chinese virus” but had been subdued in his later remarks on cable TV when he accepted the gifts of medical equipment from “his Chinese friends” Mr Jack Ma (of Alibaba) and Mr & Mrs Tsai. We don’t expect Mr Jones to backdown.

A big question is asked of Alan Jones if that is the case, the US should also pay for the H1N1 virus bill and other pandemic arising from US. As for foreign ownership: US, UK, Belgium and Japan are the four biggest with China ranking 9th with 1.8% of total foreign investment. China is not robbing Australian companies or people but actually helping Australia to stay off recession for last 30 years providing jobs and food on their tables. Australia has prospered with her trade with China and would Alan Jones ask his followers to return all benefits of the last 30 years? Can Australia economic recovery be sustainable without trade with China (minus 30% exports including education/tourism)

The Chinese Community Council of Australia on behalf of the 1.2 million Australians, appeal to all fellow Australians and our political leaders to take positive steps in discouraging hate speech and racists behaviour in our community.

As Australians, we want a fair go and preserve our community harmony. We support Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Opposition leader Anthony Albanese and the National Cabinet calling for all Australians to unite to defeat our common enemy Coronavirus pandemic. It is not the time for blame but to help one another with love and kindness and restore our healthy and prosperous multicultural society for all Australians.

The world is but one nation and her citizens, one country.

Since December 2019 when China was plagued by a new Coronavirus epidemic, the whole world was watching with anxiety and uncertainty as what will happen to other part of the world outside China. The whole world then went topsy-turvy. It soon realises that this Coronavirus epidemic is not confined to China. WHO steps in to monitor the whole world's situation for all of us and finally declared that a world emergency pandemic of this disease has emerged. It is a sad story as peoples around the world, initially trying to blame China and Chinese people for the spread of this Coronavirus epidemic. It is now realised that the epicentre of the disease can be anywhere. It is now not in China but in Europe. There is a possibility that it may shift to USA. The whole world is now trying to grapple with its spread and containment in order to prevent further mortality that it brings on to some of our unfortunate fragile fellow citizens.

Of course we should look at the whole pandemic as a whole world issue and should not pass the blame. As the Chief of WHO clearly stated that the Coronavirus is not China or Chinese virus. It knows no border and it can occur and spring up in any part of the world just like so many of influenza viruses before this.

Every nation of the world , big or small , must learn the lesson that we all have to try to help one another in time of the pandemic like this. And for that matter, we should all learn to help one another in time of any international disaster, be it natural or man-made. We , mankind , fellow citizens of the world, have suffered various international disasters through different pandemics, earthquakes, bushfires, floods, severe summers and winters and last but not least the silly wars. The peoples have to learn these serious lessons from the history. That is how humanity can advance and bad historical events can be contained.

The World is but one Nation and her citizens, one country.

Through the wisdom of human innovation, new sciences and technologies etc, we have the knowledge and ability to help one another to avoid, prevent and cope efficiently any international disasters falling upon us. With our advanced knowledge on internet, communication around the world are provided with very convenient tools and technologies, which have made the world smaller and brought peoples closer together. We can also plan together to solve the problems like the current Coronavirus pandemic.

The great old Chinese saying : " The Great Way forward is to create way for a fair and just Society for all peoples" , can still be used for the world today. The rulers of civilization all over the world know that to maintain long-term peace and stability, we must use a set of civilized legal system fair and just to deal with the disputes and dissents of all circles of society. Peoples are capable of living in harmony in such a society, regardless of their background, beliefs, cultures, languages, etc., and help one another with shared prosperity and peaceful development. However we need an independent judiciary under the United Nations to set up a proper, fair and just, civilized legal system. Under such system of rule of laws, we can respect, tolerate and help one another. We can live as a family with love, liberty, fraternity and happiness. That is the foundation of good government and governance, not just applies to USA, Australia, China but every other nation big or small in this world.

Many countries in the world, with the assistance of the United Nations, have now embarked on this path. This is the greatest achievement in the history of mankind this century. With these principles in mind, all rulers need not use force to cheat and kill one another or colluding with any horrible regime, fightiing for profit and even waging civil war and foreign wars.

We hope the world as a nation and her peoples, one country concept will propel mankind toward building a "Great Harmony World with universal civilized Rule of Law and Peaceful Development". No matter how hard this road is, I believe we human have enough wisdom to create such a NEW World. Under the guidance of the United Nations's Great Charter and Constitution, we can restrict the powers and actions of those rulers who do not obey the rules or the rule of law.

We believe , China will play a constructive role in creating such a New world with the West and East combined

President's Message

Bringing out your kindness, the common love and compassion for humanity from the bottom of your heart

2020 starts with some turbulent news that World War Three is possible and imminent to occur in the Middle East.

The rulers and politicians in charge on this planet and all the world citizens should continue to try to learn the spirit of what is the true meaning of freedom, democracy , equality, fraternity and Happiness for all.

One of the simple ways is to practice himself or herself and not just preaching.

We need a set of just and proper International rules of laws. More importantly, we need a simple request to every politician and citizen to try to bring out the kindness, the common love and compassion for one another and humanity from the bottom of their hearts. Is it so hard to do?

Please make that everyone's resolution for the year 2020 as the World Appeal for Peace.

Blessings from Heaven to the Earth.

With best wishes

2020 为世界和平祈求
蔡家声



回头看看,201 9年就过去了,但是我们的世界是否有进步?我们的科技,医学,教育,物质等方方面面都在不断提升,然而根据联合国的数据,只有少部分的世界人口,主要分布在发迖的少数国家的人口才能够享受这些先进的福利成果。
世界二战结束后,世界人民本可享受世纪和平的生活,没想到人类还不断在残酷政治斗争中,战火中,死亡的人数远比一二战牺牲的更多,真让人心寒。
目前世界上受战争,内战外战的影响下,有七千多万人口的难民在逃难漂流,无家可归,除蒙受家破人亡之苦外,过着生不如死的生活环境里,我们生活在舒舒服服的环境里有没有想到他们?这些是人祸造成的 ,有没有人考虑过,去协助调查解决这些人祸的问题?
除此之外,联合国UNOCHA还告诉我们目前最少有九千四百多万人生活在极贫穷的困境中面临着各种天灾的袭击如洪灾台风大火等,还有千千万万的老百姓也还生活在每天一至二美元的水平上,过着半饥饿的生活,又缺乏营养和医疗服务 等,很容易饿死病死,这些很多也是政治管理不当造成的。
我们不要埋怨指责别人,但可以探讨种种的根源去协助改善它。
每个人都想要过美好居安乐业,生有所养,病有所医,长有所成,老有所依的生活。
人类的文明发展到今天,本来可以让每个人至少都能过上基本好生活的。
根据Stockholm International Peace Research Institute 的调查,目前世界各国国防的开支高达一万八千二十二亿美元,你知道这 个数字如果用在世界上每个难民,每个半饥饿,极端贫穷人的身上,他们都可以过着健健康康快乐的生活。
我希望世界上所有国家领导人都要去好好学习如何管理好国家并且还能协助落后国家的老百姓也能享受人道的生活。西方进步国都整天强调要让每个人生来可以过着平等自由博爱和快乐,Equality, Liberty, Paternity and Happiness 的生活,特别是美国人。但是如何才能达到这样的治国理念呢?
那就是要创造一个世界大和平的局面,各国政府都能在和平发展的道路为老百姓谋福利,各国都能和平相处,互相尊重,互相帮助,互相交流过上美好多元的生活。
如此一来,在联合国大宪章,国际法制的管理下,世界大和平是有希望的,是有可能的。
有人会说这只能是梦想,幻想,但通过教育,我想人类的文明和平世界最终还是会到来的,到那时我们就可以每年剩下一万八千多亿美的国防开支,足够让世界上每个难民,穷困饥饿病痛等人民,过上安居乐业的日子。这是人类2020年及以后的最大的挑战! 我们这辈子可能看不到,但是我们子孙后代可以完成我们的心愿,都期待有这么一天。祝各位都能在新的一年里实现自己的心愿。

Looking back, from 1945 to 2019, has our world made much progress? Yes, our science and technology, medicine, education, material richness, internet and many other aspects of life, are constantly improving. However according to the data of the United Nations, only some of the world's population, in developed countries, can enjoy these advanced achievements.
Since World Wars ended, the world could have enjoyed a century of peace but due to human weaknesses, greed and power struggles, political immaturity leading to further invasive military conflicts and civil wars, man made disasters continue to haunt us. The death toll is shockingly large. It totalled more than the death toll from the two World Wars combined. The fact is really chilling.

Moreover current existing military conflicts have created more than 70 million homeless refugees, fleeing and drifting around the world, apart from suffering the destruction of their families and homes, they are living in hell like environments. Do we really think of them when we live comfortably in peaceful and luxurious environment? Has anyone ever considered helping to investigate and solve these man-made disasters?

In addition, the UNOCHA data shows that more than 94 million people are living in extreme poverty, facing various natural disasters, such as floods, typhoons and fires etc and tens of millions of ordinary people are still living on one to two US dollars a day with lack of nutrition and medical services, so they could easily died of starvation and illnesses. Many of these are caused by political mismanagement and turmoil.
We should not try to blame anyone but we should explore the root causes so that tomorrow can be better for our poor brothers and sisters no matter where they live in this world.

Everyone wants to live a good life , in peace and contentment just like the people living in developed countries.

According to research by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, in 2019 , the defence spending of all countries in the world, adds up to a staggering US 1822Billion. Research shows that if we use US 1822 billion wisely, we could help to settle all refugees, millions of poor people living in poverty and those who suffer from man made and natural disasters and more.

They can all live a healthy and happy life like us in the developed countries.

We in developed countries emphasize that everyone should be born with equality, freedom, fraternity and happiness.
We are taught to
respect , help, tolerate and accept one another living together in a multicultural world.
We have to learn to solve our disputes and differences through dialogue and International Rules of Laws and communicate with one another for peace and shared prosperity.

We have to learn to enjoy one another's company so that we can all live a beautiful, happy , peaceful life.

Some would say the idealism is just a dream, a fantasy, but through proper education, I believe that the civilization of humanity and peace of the world will eventually prevail. This is the biggest challenge for mankind in 2020 and beyond! We might not be able to achieve it now but we can make a start and hope our future generations will continue to take up the challenges. I am confident one day The World Appeal for Peace will be realized under the great Charter of United Nations and the fair and just rule of International Laws.
Finally I wish you all the best in your undertaking in 2020 and please join me to promote The World Appeal for Peace with blessings from Heaven.


2019年非常重要的G20世界峰会


蔡家声
1999年成立的G20世界组织是一个非常重要的世界领袖会见商讨当今世界所面对的各种需要协商的问题的组织!这个组织的重要性是因为它包括世界强国和经济国的成员比如美国、中国、俄国、法国、英国、德国、日本、印度等列强!G20各国加起来的总体经济力量是世界GWP的90%!贸易量的总和是世界的80%人口的总和是世界的三分之二.

为什么我要强调2019年是非常重要的一年呢?
1. 中美贸易战的影响
在还未开会之前,美国总统特朗普先生一直强调他必须要和习近平见一面来协商如何寻找一条解决中美贸易战的对策!因为他知道这样互相对抗下去,对美国也最终没有好处!虽然他喜欢夸大口!说这说那!
这个问题对世界各国的影响也将有不可预算的坏后果!所以来参加这次世界G20峰会的美国盟友们也都抱着希望来说服美中两国领导人要好好协商,互相尊重,互相包容,尽快找到一些妥协的方案,重振世界各国的经济!这包括我们澳洲的总理莫里森先生!他也呼吁美中两国尽快和好地解决他们的贸易纠纷好让澳洲的经济有些转机!他将积极努力说服特朗普和习近平友好商讨,尽快解决美中贸易的纠纷!这是值得表揚的!在此送上祝福,希望美中领导层在这G20峰会好好探讨不要辜负千千万万世界村居民的厚望!
2. 美国伊朗纠纷的影响
最近看到前美国总统卡特发表的视频:他说在美国建国的242年的历史长河中,只有16年的和平年代!美国是世界最好战的国家!美国花了大约3万亿军事费用!
马云曾经和特朗普见面时也提过这个问题,如果美国能节省一些军事的开支,少打一些战的话,美国人民不但生活会过得更好,也会让更多人尊重它!就不会有911事件,也不会有中东如今这么悲惨的局面了!
美国现在的领导层看来又是一群好胜好战的,包括特朗普在内!整体不顾国际规则,制造谎言舆论,收买人心,找借口发动战争!美国这几十年颠覆了几个弱小的中东国家,阿富汗、伊拉克、利比亚、叙利亚等。美国领導人自称是基督徒却干了这么多杀人放火之事,死后必入地獄,如果再想颠覆伊朗的话,后果更不堪设想了!美国的盟友们包括澳洲在内,你们要睁大你们的眼精和动用你们的大脑,别一次又一次被美国煽惑,加入她发起的战役,劳民伤财不说还要替她收拾一大堆的难民摊子!这次是个大好机会劝劝美国不要去欺负小国伊朗!和平解决纠纷!
2019年的G20峰会如果能够好好解决以上两个世界当前人民最关心的问题就算非常成功了!其他事情可以慢慢协商!祝福G20峰会大功告成!


参加中华人民共和国70周年国庆活动的感想
蔡家声

我非常荣幸受中国政府的邀请去北京参加了中华人民共和国70周年的国庆活动,让我感慨万千!但最让我激动的是9月28日去北京展览馆参观了中华人民共和国成立70周年大型成就展,中国从1949年10月1日宣布中华人民共和国的成立至2019年的短短70年中,把一穷二白的'中国人民帶到今天的小康社会,已让超过10亿人口脱贫!也不知间接让多少其他国家人民脱贫,这是联合国的数据,是事实!短短改革开放的四十年内,中国政府和人民一同努力与时俱进,创造了历史的奇迹!中国前30年没有足够治国经验,走过了一些弯路,犯过了一些错误,这在历史长河中也是难免的,知错能改,善莫大焉,中国在共产党领导下配合各民主党派的合作协商下,在中国国民党遗留下来的烂摊子中,重建各级人民民主政权,才慢慢地使中华民族再站起来!恢复多年被战乱破坏的国民经济,给农民分了土地,让工人有了社会应有的地位,帮助资本家恢复和发展生产!确立了中国共产党领导的多党合作和政治协商制度,人民代表大会制度和民族区域自治制度!
这是根据中国的国情“大道之行也 天下为公 选贤与能”从基本草根人民中选出有才德兼备的贤能人才来代表人民参政议政!
这个故事在西方被很多人误解,更让别有居心者误导西方的各国人民,把共产党宣扬得非常独裁的魔鬼,才有今天一小撮香港的年轻人和成年人做出不伦不类的暴力示威!在短短的七十年里,中国人民共和国政府是摸着大象过河,难免有过不良统治的阶段!试问哪个西方政权没有过他们统治黑暗的一面呢?
话说回来,中国建立了自己新时代的社会主义基本经济制度,打下了国家工业化和现代化的基础,在改革开放的突破后,培养了大批人才和积累经验,解放思想,坚持体制改革,对外开放,引进外国的资金,设备,技术,资源能源!带来了外国先进的市场,先进的理念,制度,融汇成现在的中国特色社会主义现代化新时代的国家治理体制,把当初10多亿人口从一穷二白改造成目前的小康之家,这难道不能和任何的西方国家媲美吗?

但是中国政府还在不断努力!还有一千多万人口处于极贫穷的生活中,中国政府有信心在不久将来也会协助他们进入小康之家,西方人喜欢批评中国共产党的缺点,但没有看到他们也在不断地深入自我改革,提倡民主治国,全面依法治国,让人民群众在每一项法律制度,每一个执法决定,每一宗司法案件中都感受到公平公正的决定!同时也提倡依法设定权力,规范权力,制约权力,监督权力,处理好维稳维权的关系,要把群众合理合法的利益诉求解决好,并且严厉治理贪腐问题,在全国提倡自由民主文明法治平等公平公正和谐等信念,教育人民!这些我想也是在改革开放后和西方交流所取得的成效!
中国当然和其他国家一样,也不是十全十美的国度!但是只要堅持以民为本,服务人民,不骄不躁,一步一个脚印,不断学习新的科学治国管理方法,中国明天肯定会更好!中国,西方和世界各国都在互相学习中不断求进步,我也很欣慰了解到中国在联合国颇有很多建设性的作用!她现在是联合国最大的维和部队的参与者!中国极力主张各国和平发展,创造双赢,不做霸权主义的国家!中国提倡多边主义,共建沟通大桥,互相共享成果!共建和平世界人类命运的共同体!让中国更加美好,也让世界各国更加美好!中国梦也是世界人民之梦,想起前澳总理陆克文也曾经提过的:中国梦也是人类的梦!澳洲,美国,英国,欧盟,亚洲各国等领导们都应该看到,中国大门是欢迎你们多去看看,多去了解中国,多和中国人民交流,那中国就不会像你们一些人所想象得那么可怕了!和平外交和平发展是人类命运共同体的通道,是世界各国人民幸福的来源,希望各国互勉!


Pay tribute to a liberal democratic and civilized Australian electoral system!

Dr Ka Sing Chua

The Federal election in Australia held on 18 May 2019 has finally come to an end! The Coalition Party, led by Scott Morrison, has won the federal election that the public thinks he would not have won! Bill Shorten, leader of the Labour Party, was disappointed to lose the election that should not have been lost!

I congratulate Scott Morrison and his team, as well as Bill Shorten, who has had the chance to lead the Labour Party for nearly six years.

I like the liberal democractic and civilized electoral competition system of Australia! When the Labour leader Shorten knew he couldn't win that night, he accepted the defeat gracefully and politely and congratulated Morrison on his election. Morrison, too, graciously thanked Shorten for his congratulations in his election victory speech. All parties generously accepted the final choice of the Australian people!

I would also like to congratulate the two candidates running in the Federal lower seat of Chisholm namely Madam Liao Chan-ngo representing the Liberal Party for the Coalition and Madam Yang Qianhui representing the Labour Party respectively. Both ladies have brought tremendous expectation to the Australian community especially the Chinese Australian community! Whoever wins the Federal Representative in this seat will be the pride of our community! I send my blessings to both!

I again congratulate Ms. Liao who now stands to win in the end! She becomes the first Chinese Australian Federal Representative! I hope she will continue to serve the people well! Ms. Yang however should not be discouraged,. She still has lot of opportunity in future if she continues to work hard and participate in politics. She can compete the seat again in three years' time at the next Federal election.

Many Chinese may not know that our Australian system of democracy and civilisation, was adopted following hundreds of years of trial and courageous experimentation by Western democratic institutions. It was also through countless of hardships, bloodshed and sacrifice that the transformation from a feudal civil war era to a modern democratic and civilized institution where political power was transferred to opposition in peaceful manner. Many countries in the world are striving to move in this direction. Because this system is good for the people and the country!

Change of ruling party no longer has to be decided by force and armed civil wars. People now can adopt such a system with peaceful change-of-power through election system such as in Australia, Britain, America, Japan and so on!

Moreover, after the election , the losing party members still have the chance to participate in the political affairs of the country. They can help to scrutinise the winning party to make them accountable to the people they both serve. People from all walks of life who are in opposition to one and another during the election, gracefully accept the result of the election! Life goes on for every one and live in peace as usual! If one does not agree with the result of the election, it can be handled peacefully according to the established legal processes and no need for violence.

Unfortunately, there are still many countries in the world which are not democratic and civilized enough to embrace this system of governance. They still engage in riots and civil war activities. Innocent people suffer, victimized and country ruined, for whatever reason, by the corruption of their selfish leaders who try to seize political power by force and killing one another.

Therefore, people of all walks of life in Australia should assist one another and cherish this system of peaceful change of governments. I also hope that more people all over the world will have a chance to learn to embrace such a system and live in peace and security in a system of peaceful transformation, Then there will be no more civil wars. So please do not use war to settle disputes over political dissent.


Tribute to Former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke

Dr Ka Sing Chua

The Honourable Mr.Bob Hawke, the former Prime Minister of Australia, just passed away. My esteemed friend in politics, please rest in peace. You may not be here, but your contribution to Australia and the Chinese people will be remembered forever!

Remember in 2001, you were invited to our forum organised by the National Liaison Council of Chinese Australians- Chinese Australian Leaders' Gathering, held at the Melbourne City Town Hall, to present a vision of the future of Australia and Asia and the contributions of immigrants, And on the same forum, your good friend, Prime Minister Gough Whitlam spoke too. This was a project to celebrate the Centenary of the Commonwealth of Australia with Chinese contribution to Australia! You have given us much encouragement and hope!

This morning I received a letter of praise from Bill Shorten, the Opposition Leader of the Labour Party, which sums up your whole life and contributions to the country. I'm very impressed! I would like to pay some of my tribute to you here.

You and the team have achieved long lasting benefit for Australia as listed below and more:

1. Medicare, Australia's National Health System, as a doctor, I understand more about the importance of Australia's National Health Service! You know this big principle well. If a country is to be prosperous and secured, the greatest productive force comes from a healthy population and people can live healthy and happy lives

2. You have created a Superannuation system that allows every worker to have a good retirement fund without having to rely on old aged pension. It's amazing . This long-term plan will benefit the Australian people as a whole for many years to come!

3. You have encouraged and promoted a policy of rejuvenating the nation by educating and enabling intelligent children to go to colleges and universities , rich or poor, and have produced many talents for the country. There was a time when going to colleges and universities was free, even though it was the foundation of your friend Gough Whitlam!

4. You believe that Australia's development and future depend on Asia, because Australia is a part of Asia! You have created a very good communication bridge APEC Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Organization! This organization still plays a very important role today!

5. The protection of Australia's virgin forests and resources was also a major contribution through the adoption of the World Heritage Protection Act! Let the magnificent Franklin River remains undamaged as one of the World Heritage Sites, etc., and support a range of environmental projects!

6. Officially positioning "Advance Australia" as the national anthem for Australia to replace " God save the Queen" The British national anthem! You've done your best for the Australian Republican Movement too.

7. Before you became Prime Minister, as President of the ACTU, you advocated the following policies that make Australia internationally respected:

(i) Trade union organization is the sacred right of workers and the function of consultation
(ii) Opposing French testing of nuclear weapons in the Pacific
(iii) Against the Indochinese Vietnam War, your good friend Gough Whitlam helped to stop the Vietnam War when he came to power!
(iv) Against racial policy in South Africa! Former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser has also laid the groundwork for you

8. After taking office, you have also tried to implement a fair and just multicultural state policy in an all-round way! Oppose the revival of White Australian Policy! We should protect the rights of the minority migrants and encourage them to respect each other and integrate into the mainstream! After the Tiananmen Square incident in 1989, you decided to pardon 40,000 Chinese students to stay in Australia! This team has contributed a lot to the development of Australia-China relations today! Your efforts were not in vain!

9. After you quit politics, you have continued to promote Australia-China Relations. You are also one of the founders of the Asian Boao Forum held annually in Hainan, China, and have supported its development. You have contributed a lot to the development of Asia.

Finally what I most admired is : no matter what and where you are, in high position or civilian, you are a dear and approachable good person! You said that yourself in one of your interviews that is what you want people to remember you most. We respect you and wish you a happy journey on the road to heaven.

The new Australian Political Turn? A Vote for the Labour or Coalition Party?

Dr Ka Sing Chua

The three-yearly Australian Federal Election will be held on May 18th 2019! Please cast your sacred vote for the party that will serve the peoples well with a long-term plan for the country!

Australia is a country of liberal democracy and legal system! This is the cumulative effort achieved by Australian people of all nationalities in the past 50 years! When Australia was under the White Australian Policy, we should not forget that many ethnic minorities did not enjoy the right to vote, including our indigenous compatriots! So the first thing is to vote for the party which is more insightful and resolute in implementing a tolerant multicultural state policy and its rule of law that all of us, including the white majority, support, to protect the equality and mutual respect of our fellow citizens of ethnic minorities and to contribute to the welfare of Australia!

Over the past 50 years, there have been many visionary leaders in both political parties, including the Labour Party Gough Whitlam, Bob Hawke, Paul Keating, Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard, The Liberal Party, like Menzies, Malcolm Fraser, Malcolm Turnbull, etc.,They have made great contributions in this respect and have taken a firm stand on it! However there are some leaders in the Coalition Party who behave differently sometimes. They are opportunistic to obtain power that they are willing to drop those good principles of governance and cooperate with politicians like Pauline Hanson and Clive Palmer in promoting racism.

A good multi-cultural state policy is the foundation of Australia's 21st century nation-building and should be non-negotiable. The migrants chose to emigrate to Australia because she has a very stable, safe, free, democratic and legal society! All ethnic groups should be treated equally, regardless of their background! And there are fair and just legal safeguards!

Secondly, it depends on whether this political party will take care of all its citizens so that they can live and work in peace and contentment, have a place to live, a healthy life, grow up and have a secure environment.. Australia is lucky. We basically have been able to do that for the past 50 years! No matter which political party is in power, if the quality of their leaders is good, basically they will not deviate from these principles of good governance.

But in the past six years, the Coalition Party's record has not been so good! That's mainly because of the quality of their leadership with six years of disunity! Prime Ministership were challenged and replaced three times within their party, fighting internally and not devoting all their energy to running the country! Something bad has happened! It allows some extreme racist parties to take advantage! If we go on like this, the harmonious coexistence of all ethnic groups in Australia and a tolerant and mutually supportive living environment may be affected. There are also some conservative and racist MPs in the Coalition Party who are openly working with the One Nation, Pauline Hanson and Clive Palmer's Party! They use disinformation to fool some of their followers.

The Coalition Party polls have lagged behind the Labour Party for the past three years, the biggest reason being the reason I mentioned above!

More over Australia under Coalition Party, has blindly followed the United States to suppress China for the past three years, allowing the media to run amok, accusing China of encouraging Chinese Australian citizens to spy, interfering in Australian politics and subverting the Australian Government. Use the cold war mentality to cast fear and suspicion among the feelings of Chinese Australians and general Australian public. This is a very bad move.

I really admire former Prime Minister Paul Keating, Kevin Rudd, Foreign Minister Bob Carr, Gareth Evans and other Labour elders for their insightful views on this issue! Ever since former Prime Minister Gough Whitlam in 1972, has had the foresight to develop new Australian-China relations, the biggest beneficiary is the Australian people. Since then, the two major political party governments have basically reached a consensus on the development of good Australian-China relations. But in the past three years, the Coalition Party has done badly in this respect!. What an embarrassing situation we have in Australia-China relations now creating a lot of uncertainty and misunderstanding. Also it causes some Chinese Australian citizens to feel uneasy! The economy, however good, does not necessarily lead to a happy life!

All in all, although there are still some good people with vision and quality in the Coalition Party, I believe in Labour Party this time as they are united and have presented some many good reforms planning and policies to create a better, fair and just society. They also promised to have a new constructive Australia-China foreign policy, tax reform, health care, education, immigration, welfare, and so on. I believe we should give the Labour Party a chance to govern this coming Federal Election.

Note : I am a non-partisan independent commentator who in different circumstances, have supported the two main parties in power to govern.


Creating a New Australia-China Relationship
New opportunities, new directions

Dr Ka Sing Chua

In the 21st century of civilization, we all hope to see every country of the world can live in a secured and stable environment. With mutual benefit, mutual help and win-win strategy, all can live and prosper together, happily and peacefully.

Every country has its own characteristics. There are institutional differences and differences in living customs, cultural and religious beliefs, We must learn to seek common ground while reserving differences. Learn universal values that are universally applicable to each other. Let the world proceed gradually to a common human destiny, the Great Harmony Way! Peaceful development is the destiny of all human community! This is the general direction of world civilization that I know!

In the last 20 years of Australia-China relations, I believe we are also trying to move in this direction.

For the past two or three years, however, since President Trump took office, he has been a bit of a backslider, pushing only for America first! He have not even disregard the friendly opinion of American's allies, and engage in unilateralism, secession practices, and want to dominate the world. He creates animosity against China and sanctions Russia and so on! Not to mention that the United States has trampled on the Middle East and some small and weak countries, creating lots of Wars, Refugees and Turbulence! He recently even started trade war with long term allies EU! Not to mention the trade war with China has not stopped hurting each other!

This lesson occurs in front of Australia's eyes. Australia should have the sense of propriety! The Australian leaders are not fools. Therefore, Australia should not follow America blindly. If not careful, America may also steal some of the Australian market and interests!

The Prime Minister of New Zealand is smart! When she recently invited to visit China, she showed great grace and vision, She did not blindly follow the United States. She, for the sake of the interests of the people of New Zealand, continues to make efforts with friendly exchanges with China on the basis of mutual benefit, mutual help and win-win strategy. She is willing to support the general direction of China's peaceful development policy! Also she supports China Belt and Road initiatives!
·
Australia must not lag behind New Zealand!

Australia and China should strive to create a new type of Australia-China relationship, create new opportunities and take a new direction to lead Asia to the world. Establish an EU ASIA and build a more practical alliance with Asia than just the APEC!

The people of Asia really need such an organization to lead the massive poor Asians out of poverty. And help create more secured, stable societies with fair share of world's prosperity. Also help them to build fairer and just institutions and the road to civilization in peace, the common human destiny.

Australia and China have great potential for cooperation! With our vast market and population to service, our rich resources, technology, talents, intellectual and farsighted leaders, we can lead all of Asia to a new century of peaceful development, mutual assistance with shared prosperity and a new era of common human destiny and civilisation. Will Australia and China dare to accept the responsibilities and challenges of the 21st century?

On the Harm of One Nation Party Platform to Australia
Dr Ka Sing Chua

Last week I highlighted how determined New Zealands Prime Minister, Jacinda Arde rn, was to take a series of measures to prevent the recurrence of these extremely violent acts of violence, following the violent acts of a extreme white supremacist in New Zealand. In addition she legislates stringent laws to control them, such as banning the use of military-style gun laws.

She also sets out to educate citizens about how to distance themselves from the influence of these terrorist extremists and to defend resolutely the correct, democratic and civilized multicultural policies.

Australia is one of the most successful countries which created and promotes a national multicultural state policy. We are fortunate since the two Governments of Gough Whitlam1972 and Malcolm Fraser1975 respectively worked together to create and promote this set of democratic, free and civilized national Multicultural State policy, Under the consensus of the two major political parties, the successive Australian Governments are fully aware that the importance of this national policy that forms the foundation of the modern Australia's nation-building. They can only improve with the times and must not give up. It can be said that in this 21st century, every country in the world should look to follow the Australia's successful national Multicultural State policy. Nowadays, the world really has no certain national boundaries! We all know that all countries must be opened up so that people of different races, religions, beliefs, languages, backgrounds, etc. can visit, travel, exchange, invest and develop and so on so that their countries can prosper. If we want to attract talent to help build the country, we must have a set of safety laws and security conditions before people dare to come to your country and contribute their talents.

Almost every country today has citizens of all races, religions, beliefs, cultures, languages, backgrounds, etc, If the people of all walks of life are to live and work in peace and contentment and to serve the country, a successful multicultural policy of this kind is necessary for long-term stability. The United Nations recently announced the figures of the World's happiest country status and the top 30 countries all have such a set of multicultural policies and universal values. In addition to democracy, civilization and the rule of law, every citizen must be treated equally, and people of all backgrounds must be educated in accordance with universal values and rules and laws, Under the non-discriminatory policies of race, religious belief, language and culture, mutual respect, tolerance, cooperation and assistance , all citizens will then be happily serving their country, protecting their country, live and work in peace and contentment, and lead a happy life together.

What the One Nation Party in Australia has done since the founding of the Party has no constructive policy towards Australia. It is only by polarizing our fellow citizens that they have succeeded in robbing a few seats in Australian Parliament because they managed to fool some ignorant and innocent voters to support them. They are good at creating conflicts among the people. With the extreme ideology they promote, unfortunately, they are able and have created a few extremists of the mentally disturbed minority, Providing them with exposure of the media and daring them to carry out Nazi-style extremist acts against ethnic religious groups and migrant minority. They laid down the breeding ground for the Australian extremist terrorists in New Zealand. So we must warn, educate and stop these ignorant and innocent citizens from being influenced by these bad politicians, to follow the One Nation Party! They could be just another white hate-monger. I believe that these unscrupulous politicians will be eliminated sooner or later by the people. Mark Latham, a newly elected New South Wales upper House MP for One Nation Party, is one such politician we have to watch,. He used to be the leader of the Labour Party in Federal Parliament!

I hope Prime Minister Scott Morrison doesnt follow in their footsteps. If he goes down the road to Hanson, he will not going to end well.

The recent revelation that One Nation Party is going to co-operate with the United States National Gun Lobby Group to support them in their coming Australian Federal Election. It is a shocking surprise. They apparently have the audacity to ask for $10 million campaign funds from NGL of US. With that fund One Nation hopes to win enough seats to control both the Lower and Upper House of Australian Federal Parliament.This is the real danger of underminding Australian politics and state by foreign power and influence.

Australian well-informed politicians must not underestimate the harm that a small group of people, such as One Nation can do to Australian future social development. I call on all major poltical parties to co-operate and put all candidates of the One Nation last at the next Federal election so that they will have no chance of being elected. We must determine to drive Members like Hanson out of the Australian political arena once again. I hope Prime Minister Morrison will consciously cooperate with the Labour , Green Party and other Parties to put One Nation last in their ballots, for the greater good of the country. We must not have any illusion on the extreme right in the Coalition Party either as they can cause just as much harm to our nation.

SO when the next federal election comes, we have to choose carefully and wisely, who are better fit to be the representatives of the people.


Great Harmony World, Great civilised Rule of Law, Peaceful Development!
Dr Ka Sing Chua
WWW.MAPW.ORG.AU

The world in the 21st century has seen many unexpected changes. Through the wisdom of human innovation, new technologies bring us much convenience. Especially in the areas of transportation and the Internet, communication and communication around the world are provided with very convenient tools and technologies, which have made the world smaller and brought peoples closer together.
The great old Chinese saying : " The Great Way forward is to create way for a fair and just Society for all peoples" , can still be used for the world today. The rulers of civilization all over the world all know that to maintain long-term peace and stability, we must use a set of civilized legal system fair and just to deal with the disputes and dissents of all circles of society. Such a society is capable of peaceful development and the peoples living in such a society, regardless of their background, beliefs, cultures, languages, etc., which may be different from one another. However under this set of fair and just civilization and legal system, we can respect each other, tolerate each other, help each other and live in harmony, and live a happy and peaceful life together.

Many countries in the world, with the assistance of the United Nations, have now embarked on this path. This is the greatest achievement in the history of mankind this century. With these principles in mind, all rulers need not use force to kill one another, cheating one another, colluding with the Regime and fightiing for profit, even waging civil war and foreign wars.

The method to solve the disputes and dissents of the various factions of the people can also use the common civilized legal system to control these undesirable rulers! They are not ignorant but selfish, cannot control themselves, so we must use the powerful rule of law to limit their abuse of power, causing harm to their people and their other bad behavior!

Mankind is moving forward on the road of building a "Great Harmony World, Universal civilised Rule of Law and Peaceful Development". No matter how hard this road is, I believe we human have enough wisdom to create such a One World. Under the guidance of the United Nations's Great Charter and Constitution, we can restrict the powers and actions of those rulers who do not obey the rules or the rule of law. That is why we have "peacekeeping forces, International Tribunals, sanctions rules of international law.

Although some people in many countries are still in dire straits, the Internet, with the innovative wisdom of mankind, will help continue to improve and improve each country's civilized legal system and international civilized legal system by means of peaceful development.

So I am pleased to see that the disputes between Huawei of China and the United States can also be resolved through the civilized legal system. Western countries, including Australia, which pride themselves to promote civilized rule of law, should also do so instead of using their military and financial strength to bully backward countries and encroach on the land and wealth of small and weak countries as they have in the past. If we all adhere to a set of fair and just civilized system of governance, there will be hope for the Great Harmony World in the making eventually.

Australia should consider choosing a more suitable National Day of Australia

Dr Ka Sing Chua

Under British colonial rule, January 26 was chosen as Australia's National Day, which at the time was understandable and justifiable. However, since the Federation of Commonwealth of Australia was established on 1 January 1901, Australia has basically declared itself independent. But it was a matter of honorary independence because the passage of most of the substantive laws and Federal acts, were still essentially have to be ratified by the British Parliament and the Royal Family. It was not until Prime Minister Gough Whitlam took office in 1972 that the right of the highest appeal to the British Supreme Court was finally terminated. And it was determined that the Governor General of Australia must be an Australian citizen, etc. Unfortunately, our Head of State has not changed. It still belongs to the British Royal family.

Conservatives often boast that The Royal Family does not control the supreme power of the Australian Parliament. Why should we have to change it?

That is only half right, because constitutionally, through Australia's Governor General, the British Australian Head of State still control the highest power in the Australian Parliament, including the highest military command. Although the present Governor General of Australia must be an Australian citizen, however if the Australian Constitution is not changed, Australia constitutionally remains under the 'control' of the Head of State from United Kingdom.

I am very much in favour of changing the date of Australia's National Day because January 26th was the day (January 26th, 1788, ) when Captain Arthur Phillips landed in Port Jacksons which is today Sydney. He raised the British flag, declaring Australia be the British Empire's colony. Aboriginals who lived in Sydney and around Australia were systematically killed, chased away from their homeland and /or then enslaved, and subjected to assimilation policies whence many of their children were forcibly 'stolen' and segregated from their mothers and many were treated cruelly and unfairly. It was not until the 1967 referendum that indigenous peoples were given equal rights to vote and citizenship.

In 2015, a National Sorry was declared by Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd in Federal Parliament to those victims known as Stolen Generation
of the indigenous children who were forcefully taken away from their parents.

Of course, we will also not forget that Australia has a dark and sad era of White Australia policies which caused lot of suffering for many coloured migrants.

For the success and prosperity of modern Australia today, we will certainly not forget the contribution made by the British Government to the development of the Australian colonies in the past. However, in the past 50 years, Australia has implemented a very successful non discriminatory, multicultural policy to accommodate immigrants from all over the world, with various religious, cultural, coloured, traditions and language backgrounds. Without the change, Australia would surely have remained in the anachronism of the White Australia policy.

Therefore, in order to meet the demands of the civilised 21st Century and to keep pace with the times, many far-sighted Australians have proposed that Australia should change to a more appropriate Australian National Day. A National Day that will be recognized by more than over 150 different ethnic, religious, linguistic and religious communities and celebrate together without animosity from certain section of the community especially the indigenous people who remember the current National Day as Invasive Day when their land was stolen from them

I therefore very much agree with former Victorian Premier Jeff Kennett's recent proposal to change National Day to January 1. Whether through referendum or not, I hope that the Government and the Opposition can reach a consensus that January 1 be declared the new National Day of Australia as that was the day Federation of Commonwealth of Australia was established and it is a very appropriate date. I believe that the vast majority of Australians will support it.

Australia should consider choosing a more suitable National Day of Australia
Dr Ka Sing Chua

Under British colonial rule, January 26 was chosen as Australia's National Day which, at the time, was understandable and justifiable. However, since the Federation of Commonwealth of Australia was established on 1 January 1901, Australia has basically declared itself independent. But it was only a matter of honorary independence because the passage of most of the substantive laws and Federal acts, were essentially still have to be ratified by the British Parliament and the Royal Family. It was not until Prime Minister Gough Whitlam took office in 1972 that the right of the highest appeal to the British Supreme Court was finally terminated. And it was determined that the Governor of Australia must be an Australian citizen, etc. Unfortunately, our Head of State has not changed. It still belongs to the British Royal family.

Conservatives often boast that The Royal Family does not control the supreme power of the Australian Parliament. Why should we have to change it?
That is only half right, because constitutionally, through Australian Governor-General and Governors, the British Australian Head of State still control the highest power in the Australian Parliaments including the highest military command. Although the present Governor General and Governors of Australia must be Australian citizens, but if the Australian Constitution is not changed, Australia will remain under the 'control' of the Head of State from United Kingdom.

I am very much in favour of changing the date of Australia's National Day because January 26th was the day (January 26th, 1788, ) when Captain Arthur Phillips landed in Port Jacksons which is today Sydney. He raised the British flag and , declared Australia be the British Empire's colony. Aboriginals who lived in Sydney and around Australia were chased away from the homes , some killed and /or then enslaved, and subjected to assimilation policies whence many children were forcibly segregated and taken away from their parents. It was not until the 1967 referendum that indigenous peoples were given equal rights to vote and citizenship. In 2015, a National Sorry was declared by Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd in Federal Parliament to those victims known as Stolen Generation of the indigenous children who were forcefully taken away from their parents.

However, in the past 50 years, Australia has implemented a very successful non discriminatory, multicultural policy to accommodate immigrants from all over the world with various religious, cultural, coloured, traditions and language backgrounds. It has transformed Australia into one of the most liveable countries in the world with stability, harmony and prosperity. Without the change, Australia would surely have remained in the anachronism of the White Australia policy.

Therefore, in order to meet the demands of the times and to keep pace with the 21st Century, many far-sighted people have proposed that Australia should change to a more appropriate Australian National Day.

Talk about the Importance of Australia-China Relations

In the past two weeks, I have written two articles published on Saturday front page column of The Pacific Daily respectively on the importance of Australia-China relations. I pointed out that Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been friendly to China in the hope of strengthening recently perceived cooler Australia-China relations. .Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne and China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi also had a good talk at an United Nations meeting recently.
As a citizen of Australia, I am very pleased that Prime Minister Morrison has the courage and vision to take the work of the Australia-China Strategic Partnership even further, and higher.

More importantly, if Australia can encourage the APEC member states as peacemakers between China and the United States, we can avoid war in the region. How wonderful it would be to enable the countries and peoples of the Asia-Pacific region to live in a happy and peaceful life, with good governance, long-term stability and joint development!

As a peacemaker, I hope that there will be no more war in the world, and that the existing war will soon find a peace solution so that all refugees can be returned to their homes. We know honest, war is not good for anyone. But there is always a small group of arms dealers who profit from it, but their hands are full of the blood of so many of their fellow human beings! Should they repent for their sins? Those politicians, including those who wage war and conspire with the murderers, are not worthy of being the representatives of the people! These arms dealers and politicians, and their families and children, should be sent to the front lines to fight, and then they will know the terrible crimes they have perpetrated and committed.

Having said that, the Chinese Foreign Ministry thinktank Mr Liu Qing, Director of the Asia-Pacific Institute of the China Institute of International Studies, recently warned Australia in no uncertain terms that: " Now the ball is in Australian hands. If Australia were to move closer to the US, it would hurt Sino-Australian relations, affect trade and investment, tourism and personnel exchanges..." The Chinese state-run China Daily newspaper published an editorial with similar views: "Australia is walking a tightrope between China and the US... It is really not in their best interest to be let by the nose from US and adopt a strategy of confrontation with China."

These criticisms seem to me to be something of a "cold war mentality". Fortunately, they do not come from China's top leaders and foreign ministers, or else they really are self-defeating. They forget, USA is always a strong ally of Australia.

Don't forget, China has also made countless mistakes in the past. In foreign affairs, we should learn to understand each other's kindness and cultivate goodwill. The Australian Prime Minister has stressed the need to approach China in a measured and constructive manner. The Australian and Japanese Foreign Ministers also called on China and the United States to use the relevant international mechanisms to settle trade and political disputes and avoid a new cold war, which would not benefit anyone.

The Chinese leadership should be more tolerant of other so-called unfriendly countries, especially such important partnerships as Australia and Japan, and should take the initiative to use constructive dialogue and exchanges in order to achieve better results. Talking about diplomacy in an unfriendly tone is not the best way, and communicating in a childishly peevish manner is not constructive. If the leaders of all sides learn what is constructive dialogue and diplomacy, there is always hope for reconciliation and peace.
This applies to Australia and China, as well as China and America!

An open letter to Australian Prime Minister The Hon Scott Morrison


Dear Prime Minister of Australia

On 11/10/2018, in the 3AW radio interview, you stressed how important Australia's relationship with China is. It needs to be handled with caution and in a measured and constructive manner with China, adding that Australia can play an active role in easing Sino-US relations. You also pointed out that Australia will continue to work closely with China and the United States despite the intensification of the Sino-US trade war, as Australia has independent diplomatic relations with both countries and does not choose sides in the trade war. You also stressed: Australia welcomes the Belt and Road framework as a contribution to the infrastructure of the region.

I am pleased that on 10/10/2018, Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne and Defence Minister Christopher Pyne held a bilateral ministerial meeting with Japan's counterparts in Sydney. More importantly, in the press conference, they jointly stressed how important the win-win and mutually beneficial relationship between Australia and China is. It must be consolidated through constructive dialogue, cooperation and contacts. The two sides jointly called on China and the United States to use the relevant mechanisms to settle trade and political disputes and avoid a new cold war. Foreign Minister Payne says institutions such as the World Trade Organisation are the best place to negotiate. The Japanese Foreign Minister also said that China and the US should abide by the international order. That's right! Australia and Japan's foreign policy is no longer one-sided with the US and blames China for everything following the footstep of the US. , which, far from being constructive, has made Sino-US relations worse.

As important members of the Asia-Pacific region, Australia and Japan can play a crucial role as leaders for reconciliation and peacemaking. I am sure that all countries of the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation Organization (APEC) will also appreciate and support it.

I am pleased that Australia's foreign policy has taken a new direction under your leadership and will no longer be blindly subservient to the United States for which Australia was labelled "Sheriff of US in Asia Pacific".

I also agree that Australia should maintain a strong relationship with the United States, both politically and economically. But America is not perfect. The United States have made many mistakes in their history, in particular by constantly provoking and started many wars with its great military might. Australia, being her strong ally, has also participated in the many wars created by USA. These wars were started under the context of safe guarding the people from oppression and in the name of democracy and good governance and Governments. However the facts are nowhere near achieving these objectives.Take the Indo-China and Middle East wars for examples, in retrospect, United States has made terrible mistakes, in which innocent lives have been lost, their families have been destroyed, their lives and countries were ruined and created thousands of refugees fleeing their beloved countries. Tragedy after tragedy were repeated.

Australia should be able to distinguish the right from the wrong and should not continue to follow America blindly. United States has many good things we can learn from, and by all means, learn from their good things, and adopt if appropriate for Australia. However if United States makes mistakes, we must not follow blindly. As an ally, we should also point out the shortcomings of the United States and help her to correct them. Mr Trump has made a lot of bad decisions since coming to power, and I think smart Australian Prime Ministers and Ministers should know that or in retrospect, I do not need to point it out. I hope you will continue your efforts to improve the good relations among Australia, China, United States, Japan, Indonesia and all other APEC countries. Then Australia, and Australians, will end up to be the big winners. Thank you for your attention!

Dear Julian


Congratulations again for taking on this challenging task as the new President of AMA Victoria as of last night.


MAPW is launching a very worthy campaign to ask Australian Government to sign this Treaty supported by over two third majority of the members United Nations. This is for the safety and survivor of our children and future generations.

May I request that AMA Victoria does its share to assist in distributing this information to our members for their attention and support.

Federal AMA and World Medical Associations etc have all supported the ICAN to win the Noble Peace Prize last year for the humanity and survivor of mankind.


Thank you for your attention and support.

战争是人为的!停战也是人为的!

战争是人为的,停战也是人为的!为什么有些人明明知道战争对人来说是一种非常不人道的野蛮的行为,还整天要找借口去制造战争呢?很多借口比如要以“正义的战争去消灭不义的战争”。开战的一方总借口说对方才是错的。我才发动战争去征服她。另一方当然不服气,也搬出一大堆理由来说对方的错。那就你来我往。互相厮杀到都不行了才来和谈。为什么一开始不先和谈呢?
不和谈也搬出来很多的借口。对方不听忠告。给了他很多机会改正也不改。双方都推来推去。连见面握个手都没机会,还说一大堆理由,又先设什么条件才能坐在一起。这些很多都是成熟的政治家、军事家、参谋长的所作所为。为什么他们都不能用最文明的方法:面对面,喝喝茶,坐下来聊聊?到底是什么原因双方才要开战呢?大家都开战对双方都没有利。杀死人、伤人、破坏他人的家园、财产,制造数不清的家破人亡,仇恨等。到头来得到了什么?
如果你真的到街上去问一问普通的市民百姓要不要去参战?如果他不是狂子也不是从小就被洗脑参军没办法之外,肯定没一个人会赞成去打仗,或用战争来解决人与人,国与国之间的纠纷!
在2018年的所谓的文明时代,我们很幸运能够生活在一个和平的社会里。人类文明的进程告诉我们,每个人都可能犯错误,但是如果没有独立公正的法律来判断谁对谁错的话,那些有权有势的人就会去欺负那些弱势群体,就像以前很多旧社会那样。如今我们看看美国,英国,法国,俄国,中国这五大联合国的安全理事会常任理事国的发展史。他们都经过一段段非常悲惨的教训,那就是人民与人民打内战,厮杀的你死我活。他们也曾经参与世界一战二战和二战后大大小小的战争。他们也知道战争是最坏的方法去解决人与人,国与国的纠纷,他们的人民和祖先们也曾经遭受无数次战争的残酷经历。他们都知道只有通过公正的司法制度来解决人与人,群体与群体的纠纷才不会再有内战的发生。因为他们都不愿意再看见自己的人民互相残杀。那么请问为什么这五大国领袖不能再一起商量一下如何避免再下一次的流血战役呢?这会很难吗?
问一问你们不都以文明大国为傲吗?
问一问你们不都是联合国大宪章的起草者和拥护者吗?如果你们都有强大的和平愿望,那是没有不能避免的战争。
If there is a strong will for peace, you will find a way to prevent any war.

从特朗普外孙女的中文视频说起

中美两国元首夫妇11月8日在故宫博物院宝蕴楼茶叙时,特朗普特意使用平板电脑很骄傲地向习近平夫妇展示外孙女阿拉贝拉用中文演唱歌曲、背《三字经》和小诗词的视频,很有意思。
无可否认,特朗普第一次访问中国有重大的历史意义,中美两国关系正处于很复杂又关键的时刻,适逢中国十九大换届刚完毕的“新时代”领导班子上任。又碰上棘手的北韩问题和东海南海的历史问题余音未了。还有美国在亚太长远利益和军事问题,也不是容易解决的。
中美两国元首能在这么融洽的气氛中进行交流是很可喜可贺的一件事。俗话说“见面必有三分情”,谈谈对各自都有利益、共同关心的两国友好和经贸关系,何乐不为呢?其实美中两国都有很多共同点和可以互相学习的地方。
从小的方面看,特朗普的外孙女努力学习中国文化,学习《三字经》的精华,这正是文化精华受到欢迎的一个例子。话说回来,美国为什么会变成世界第一大强国呢?她靠的不是军队不是钱?最重要的是美国人民的文化素质和思维理念加上政治体制法治的建造等。
美国开国元勋从华盛顿、杰克森到林肯总统们的基本信念缔造了今天的美国。华盛顿、杰克森创造了一套有历史价值的政治体制,林肯总统给了人民一个强有力的公民信念。“All men are created equal”、“Abolition of slavery”、“Liberty, fraternity and happiness”、“Government of the people, by the people and for the people”等文化和政治信念,都是美国建国的基础。回想中国共产党当时创建时很多理念和信念不是和美国开国元勋们的理念和信念有很多共同之处吗?
习近平在十九大的讲话,强调“中国共产党的初心和使命就是为中国人民谋幸福……要与人民同呼吸,共命运,心连心,永远把人民对美好生活的向往作为奋斗目标”,也強调要执政为民,还要人民享有自由、民主和健全法制的好民生等等。这些都是十九大后治国的目标。我看和美国领导人奋斗的目标没有什么不同。
当然中国共产党和美国执政党们在历史长河中也都有过曲折,也都不断地在改进,不断地与时俱进,不断跟上“新时代”的要求。大家都可互相学习,取长补短,心胸要能学会容纳百川,让百花齐放,解放思想,别钻牛角尖,要让脑子开放,不断吸取迎接新的先进思想,才会更有未来。

Read below article for an impartial view of the South China Sea dispute by a Canaisdian lawyer


American Aggression against China
Christopher Black
7 February 2016
US_ship-300x162
On January 30th the United States committed a deliberate act of aggression against China when it sent the guided missile destroyer USS Curtis Wilbur within the 12 nautical mile territorial limit of one of the Paracel Islands in the South China Sea. The islands are claimed historically by China, though Vietnam also has filed claims to the islands under the Law of the Sea Convention. The Americans state that Taiwan also claims the islands but since Taiwan is just a province of China I will ignore that claim here.
The Chinese have the superior historical and present claim and the islands have long been administered by China. Chinese forces, either Kuomintang or communist, have occupied them since 1946. The Chinese have both civilian and military facilities located on the largest of them, Woody Island, including a hospital, a bank schools, an airport, a seaport and a town hall and have built a large sea port on Duncan Island. The islands are also popular with Chinese tourists.

The territorial disputes were settled long ago when the French tried to incorporate the islands into their Vietnamese territories but after the Sino-French War of 1884-85 France recognised the islands, as well as the Spratly Islands, as Chinese territories. In 1933 the French stabbed China in the back and seized the islands but were then displaced by the Japanese in 1938.
The islands reverted to Chinese control at the end of the Second World War. There was a brief war between Vietnam and China over the islands in 1974 but the Chinese succeeded in maintaining their control of the islands. The Vietnamese still contest this but the fact is that China’s historical claim and influence on the islands dates as far back as the 7th century A.D. and has been continuous since that time.
The law that applies in this situation is the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) which was negotiated between 1973 and 1982 and came into full force in 1994. Almost every country in the world has become a party to the Convention except for the United States which has refused to sign due to concerns it has about certain sections dealing with deep sea mineral mining. However, the United States has always recognised the Convention as a codification of customary international law and therefore has accepted the 12 nautical mile territorial limit, allowed all nations, including itself, as the law.
It is well to keep in mind that in 1988, President Reagan issued a proclamation extending American territorial waters to 12 nautical miles for national security purposes. Further, the United States was a party to the negotiations regarding modifications to the treaty that were made in 1994 and once again affirmed, at that time, that it recognised the Convention as general international law.
In May 2007, President Bush recommended that the US Senate ratify the Convention. In January 2009 at her senate confirmation hearing, Hillary Clinton argued, before the Senate, that the Convention be ratified. She argued for it again before the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations in 2012 and both the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Martin Dempsey and the Secretary of Defence, Leon Panetta, joined her in urging a quick ratification of the Convention, as did several senior generals and admirals. However, the Republicans succeeded in blocking ratification until today, on the grounds that any law that limits the ability of the United States to do what it wants in the world is against American “interests.”
Nonetheless, the point is that the United States recognises that all nations are entitled to claim a 12 nautical mile territorial limit as China claims over the Paracel Islands. Even if the competing claim by Vietnam was valid the limit still applies. Yet the Americans now arrogantly claim that they can go where they please and do as they like and that these limits do not apply with respect to these islands, or, in fact, to any Chinese borders.
The American government, as reported by CNN, stated that it sent its war ship into the 12-mile limit to challenge “excessive maritime claims that restrict the rights and freedoms of the US and others.” Who the others are was not stated. The statement was absurd on its face since no nation can send its war ships into another nations 12-mile limit without permission of that nation. To do so is considered a hostile act, an act of war.
An American military spokesman for the US government, Commander Bill Urban, told CNN, “This operation demonstrates, as President Obama and Secretary Carter have stated, the United States will fly, sail and operate anywhere international law allows. That is true in the South China Sea, as in other places around the globe.”The absurdity of his statement and the American position lies in the fact that international law does not permit them to send their warships inside any other nations 12 mile limit without permission of that nation and they know it. Once again, the Americans display a contempt for international law, and an arrogance towards the rest of the world, that seem to be without limit.
The American government and media bragged about the fact that “neither China, nor Vietnam was notified of their (US) intention to send their war ship inside the 12 mile limit.” The only right foreign ships, and in particular foreign military vessels, have to pass inside the 12 mile limit is in a case of “innocent passage” that is when a ship is merely transiting the area and it must be with the permission of that nation. But no war ship can pass inside territorial waters in a show of power or for any hostile reason whatsoever. But this is exactly what the American ship did, crossed into Chinese territory with hostile intent.
So, while the Americans blow hard about complying with international law it is they who, once again, vigorously violate it. The Chinese government has rightly and strongly protested this hostile act. Foreign Ministry spokesman, Lu Kang, stated the next day that the “United States is …pursuing maritime hegemony in the name of “freedom,” which was opposed by all developing countries and added that the American action was “both dangerous and irresponsible.”
The United States is pushing China to respond to its aggression but the Chinese have exercised a great deal of restraint over the years in the face of a series of American provocations from spy planes over-flying its air space to a series of naval exercises in the Pacific and South China Sea that are clearly aimed at China and are all part of America’s “pivot to the Pacific,” a shifting of the concentration of its military forces to confront China, in fact a preparation for war on China. The question is how far the Americans are willing to push.
But they are pushing everywhere, like bullies on a drunk, roaming down a street beating and shoving aside anyone they meet. Recently the Iranians detained two small American patrol craft attached to the American fleet in the Persian Gulf that entered Iranian waters. The presence of those boats in those waters at that time has given rise to a lot of speculation about their purpose but no answers, except the obvious one of preparing for hostilities of one type or another. The Americans continue to press Russia in the Black Sea using both naval and air forces and are openly committing aggression against Syria by sending their military units into Syria, allegedly to fight ISIS, without the permission of the Syrian government.And, at the same time as their ship violated Chinese territorial waters, the Americans blasted Russia by claiming Russian planes had violated Turkish airspace, a claim the Russians vehemently denied and labelled the claim what it was, a provocation.
The double standards, the hypocrisy, the constant barrage of absurd statements by American officials about international law as they ravage it, are enough to make anyone doubt their sanity. But unless we can talk about a national psychopathy with respect to the United States and the elite that governs it, and there is a lot of evidence that we can, we are forced to realise that the world is faced by the threat of a gangster nation, a nation that lives for one purpose only, conquest and domination of the planet.
Once again the United Nations proves itself either a useful tool of the United States and its dependencies or completely irrelevant to what is going on. Once again democracy is shown to be an illusion as the desire of all the peoples of the world for peace and cooperation among nations is ignored and worse, the desire for peace is called unpatriotic or treasonous; and the puppets in the mass media are as guilty as their puppet masters as they manipulate the minds of the citizens they claim to inform and stir up the hot blood of war.
And so we wait, sweat dripping off our brows, our faces grim, our muscles tensed wondering where the next blow will fall, when the next provocation will take place, when the fuse will finally blow and annihilate us all.

Introduction

Hello Umair Haque. Thanks for sharing this astonishing article of strait talking about the problems facing US and UK.

Last years I travelled through the Norway; Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Russia; UK; USA; etc just to see how their ordinary citizens live their lives . Amazingly the American society stood out like what Umair stated especially in L.A with so many homeless people living in the streets .
I hope what he stated is not all true? Otherwise we may be looking at a third World War? I hope that the leadership of US and UK will wake up to the facts of what Umair Haque has warned and not become too arrogant, stupid and desperate and looking for a scapegoat to blame and conquer?
We should send this article to our political leaders so that they can learn the lesson and not following them down the drain.
I believe China is doing just the opposite after a week in China celebrating her 70th Anniversary last October 2019
We hope China will rise to be another say Switzerland or Finland and copy some of their good social systems eventually.
What do you think?

When I ask my European friends to describe us — Americans, Brits, who I’ll call Anglo-Americans in this essay — they shake their heads gently. And over and over, three themes emerge. They say we’re a little thoughtless. They say we’re selfish and arrogant. And they say that we’re cruel and brutal.
I can’t help but think there’s more than a grain of truth. That they’re being kind. Anglo-American society is now the world’s preeminent example of willful self-destruction. It’s jaw-dropping folly and stupidity is breathtaking to the rest of the world.
The hard truth is this. America and Britain aren’t just collapsing by the day…they aren’t even just choosing to collapse by the day. They’re entering a death spiral, from which there’s probably no return. Yes, really. Simple economics dictate that, just like they did for the Soviet Union — and I’ll come to them.
And yet what’s even weirder and more grotesque than that is that…wel…nobody much seems to have noticed. There’s a deafening silence from pundits and elites and columnists and politicians on the joint self-destruction of the Anglo-American world. Nobody seems to have noticed: the only two rich societies in the world with falling life expectancies, incomes, savings, happiness, trust — every single social indicator you can imagine — are America and Britain. It’s not one of history’s most improbable coincidences that America and Britain are collapsing in eerily similar ways, at precisely the same time. It’s a relationship. What connects the dots?
Let me pause to note that my European friends’ first criticism — that we’re thoughtless — is therefore accurate. We’re not even capable of noticing — much less understanding — our twin collapse. Our entire thinking and leadership class seems not to have even noticed, like idiots grinning and dancing, setting their own house on fire. They are simply going on pretending it isn’t happening — that the English speaking world isn’t fast becoming something very much like the new Soviet Union.
So what caused this joint collapse? How did the English speaking world end up like the new Soviet Union? To understand that point, consider the fact that you yourself probably think that’s an overstatement. But it’s an empirical reality. The Soviet Union stagnated for thirty years. America’s stagnated for fifty, and Britain for twenty. The Soviet Union couldn’t provide basics for its citizens — hence the famous breadlines. In America, people beg each other for money to pay for insulin and antibiotics, decent food is unavailable in vast swathes of the country, and retirement and paying off one’s debt are impossibilities: just like in the Soviet Union, basics are becoming both unavailable and unaffordable. What happens? People…die.
(The same is true in Britain. In both societies, upwards of 20% of children live in poverty, the middle class has imploded, and upward mobility has all but vanished. These are Soviet statistics — lethally real ones.)
Politics, too, has become a sclerotic Soviet affair. Anglo-American societies aren’t really democracies in any sensible meaning of the word anymore. They’re run by and for a class of elites, who could care less, literally, whether the average person lives or dies. In America, that class is a bizarre coterie of Ivy Leaguers pretending to be aw-shucks-good-ole-boys on the one side, like Ted Cruz, and Ivy Leaguers pretending to be do-gooders on the other, like Zuck and Silicon Valley. In Britain, it’s the notorious public school boys, the Etonians and Oxbridge set.
That brings me to arrogance. What’s astonishing about our elites is how…arrogant they are…and how ignorant they are…at precisely the same time. Finland just elected a 34 year old woman as a Prime Minister from the Social Democrats. Finland is a society that outperforms ours in every way — every way — imaginable. Finnish happiness is way, way higher — and so is life expectancy, mobility, savings, real incomes, trust, among others. And yet instead of learning a thing from a miracle like that, our elites profess to know a better way…while they’ve run our societies into the ground. What the? Hubris would be an understatement. I don’t think the English language has a word for this weird, fatal combination of arrogance amidst ignorance. Maybe cocksure stupidity comes close.
And yet our elites have succeeded in one vital task — what an Emile Durkheim might have called “social reproduction.” They’ve managed to reproduce society in their image. What does the average Anglo-American aspire to be, do, have? To be rich, powerful, careless, selfish, and dumb, now, mostly. We don’t, as societies or cultures, value learning or knowledge or magnanimity or great and noble things, anymore. We shower millions on reality TV stars and billions on “investment bankers.” The average person has become a tiny microcosm of the aspirations and norms of elites — they’re not curious, empathetic, decent, humane, noble, kind, in pursuit of wisdom, truth, beauty, meaning, purpose. We’ve become cruel, indecent, obscene, comically shallow, and astonishingly foolish people.
That’s not some kind of jeremiad. It’s an objective, easily observed truth. Who else in a rich society denies their neighbours healthcare and retirement? Nobody. Who else denies their own kids education? Nobody. Who else denies themselves childcare and elderly care? Nobody. Who else doesn’t want safety nets, opportunities, mobility, protection, savings, higher incomes? Nobody. Literally nobody on planet earth wants worse lives excepts us. We’re the only people on earth who thwart our own social progress, over and over again — and cheer about it.
How did we become these people? How did we become tiny microcosms of our arrogant, ignorant, breathtakingly stupid elites? Because we are perpetually battling for self-preservation. Life has become a kind of brutal combat to the death. For jobs, for healthcare, for money, for the tiniest shreds of resources necessary to live. We wake up and fight one another for these things, over and over again. That is what our lives amount to now — gladiatorial combat. Meanwhile, elites and billionaires sit back and enjoy not just the spectacle — but the winnings.
People who are battling for self-preservation can’t take care of anyone else. If I ask the average Brit or American to consider paying for their society’s healthcare, education, elderly care, childcare, increasingly, the answer is: LOL. In America, it always has been. Why is that? The reason couldn’t be simpler. People can’t even take care of themselves and their own. How can they take care of anyone else — let alone everyone else?
The average person is living right at the edge. Not at the edge of the middle class dream and an even better one. But at the edge of poverty and destitution. They struggle to pay basic bills and never make ends meet. They can’t afford to educate their children, and retire, or retire and have healthcare, and so on. Let me say it again: the average person can’t take care of themselves and their own — so how can they take care of anyone else, let alone everyone else?
A more technical, formal way to say that is: our societies have now become too poor to afford public goods and social systems. But public goods and social systems are what make a modern, rich society. What’s a society without decent healthcare, schools, universities, libraries, education, parks, transport, media — available to all, without life-crippling “debt”? It’s not a modern society at all. But more and more, it’s not America or Britain, either.
What makes European societies — which are far, far more successful than ours — successful is that people are not battling for self-preservation, and so they are able to cooperate to better one another instead. At least not nearly so much and so lethally as we are. They are assured of survival. They therefore have resources to share with others. They don’t have to battle for the very things we take away from each other — because they simply give them to one another. That has kept them richer than us, too. The average American now lives in effective poverty — unable to afford healthcare, housing, and basic bills. They must choose. The European doesn’t have to, precisely because they invested in one another — and those investment made them richer than us.
We are caught in a death spiral now. A vicious cycle from which there is probably no escape. The average person is too poor to fund the very things — the only things — which can offer him a better life: healthcare, education, childcare, healthcare, and so on. The average person is too poor to fund public goods and social systems. The average person is too poor now to able to give anything to anyone else, to invest anything in anyone else. He lives and dies in debt to begin with — so what does he have left over to give back, put back, invest?
A more technical, formal way to put all that is this. Europeans distributed their social surplus more fairly than we did. They didn’t give all the winnings to idiot billionaires like Zucks and con men like Trump. They kept middle and working classes better off than us. As a result, those middle and working classes were able to invest in expansive public goods and social systems. Those things — good healthcare, education, transport, media — kept life improving for everyone. That virtuous circle of investing a fairly distributed social surplus created a true economic miracle over just one human lifetime: Europe rose from the ashes of war to enjoy history’s highest living standards, ever, period.
That’s changing in Europe, to be sure. But that is because Europe is becoming Americanized, Anglicized. It has a generation of leaders foolish enough to follow our lead — now remember the greatest lesson of European history, which is one of the greatest lessons of history, full stop. That lesson goes like this.
· People who are made to live right at the edge must battle each other for self-preservation. But such people have nothing left to give one another. And that way, a society enters a death spiral of poverty — like ours have.
· People who can’t make ends meet can’t even invest in themselves — let alone anyone else. Such a society has to eat through whatever public goods and social systems it has, just to survive. It never develops or expands new ones.
· The result is that a whole society grows poorer and poorer. Unable to invest in themselves or one another, people’s only real way out is to fight each other for self-preservation, by taking away their neighbor’s rights, privileges, and opportunities — instead of being able to give any new ones to anyone. Why give everyone healthcare and education when you can’t even afford your own? How are you supposed to?
· Society melts down into a spiral of extremism and fascism, as ever increasing poverty brings hate, violence, fear, and rage with it. Trust erodes, democracy corrodes, social bonds are torn apart, and the only norms left are Darwinian-fascist ones: the strong survive, and the weak must perish.
(Let me spend a second or two on that last point. As they become poorer, people begin to distrust each other — and then hate each other. Why wouldn’t they? After all, the grim reality is that they actually are fighting each other for existence, for the basic resources of life, like medicine, money, and food.
As distrust becomes hate, people who have nothing to give anyways end up having no reason to even hope to give anything back to anyone else. Why give anything to those people you are fighting, every single day, for the most meagre resources necessary to live? Why give the very people who denied you healthcare and education anything? Isn’t the only real point of life to show that you beat them by having a bigger house, faster car, prettier wife or husband?)
That is how a society dies. That is the death spiral of a rich society. In technical terms, it goes like this. A social surplus isn’t distributed equitably. That leaves the average person too poor to invest anything back in society. He’s just battling for self-preservation, and the stakes are life or death. But that battle itself only breeds even more poverty. Because without investment, nurturance, nourishment — nothing can grow. Having become poor, the average person only grows poorer — because he will never have decent public goods or social systems, let alone the rights and privileges and jobs and careers and trajectories they become and lead to.
A society of people so poor they have nothing left over to invest in one another is dying. It goes from prosperity to poverty, from optimism to pessimism, from cohesion to distrust and hate, from peace to violence — at light speed, in the space of a generation. That’s America and Britain’s story today, just as it was the Soviet Union’s, yesterday, and Weimar Germany’s, before that.
You can see how a society dies — with horrific, brutal clarity — in the self-destruction of America and Britain. The hate-filled vitriol of Trumpism, the barely-hidden hate of Brexit. Why wouldn’t people who have grown suddenly poor hate everyone else? Why wouldn’t they blame anyone and everyone they can — from Mexicans to Muslims to Europeans — for their own decline? The truth, as always, is harder. America and Britain’s collapse is nobody’s fault — nobody’s — but their own.
They are in a death spiral now, but no opponent or adversary brought them there. It was their own fault, and yet they still go on choosing it. They don’t know any other way now. Their elites succeeded at making the average person truly, fervently believe that battling perpetually for self-preservation was the only way a society could exist.
And though it’s too late to escape for them, let us hope that the rest of the world, from Europe to Asia to Africa, learns the lesson of the sad, gruesome, stupid, astonishing tragedy of self-inflicted collapse.

From the Editor

The dispute of Senkaku or Diaoyui islands' ownership between China and Japan is concerning many people in Asia and around the world. On one hand Japan claims that she has the sovereignty over them because they have been under her legal administration since the end of World war 2. While China claims that they belongs to China from the historical perspective. Japan under the Peace Treaty at the end of World War 2, supposed to return the ownership of these islands back to China. But for some unforeseen circumstances, with the eruption of China civil war, China failed to claim them back formally from Japan.

Who actually owns this island is the burning issue.

We hope that it will be resolved one way or the other through peaceful negotiation. Failing that, we suggest that the case be decided in the International Court and tribunal. It is better that way than trying to fight it out militarily. It is not worth having the war to determine the ownership of these islands. As the destruction will be far worse than the benefit for either side. Moreover if a war is declared , its implication will be unmeasurable in term of its influence with the development of China and Japan. Its disastrous effect will not only affect China and Japan but will extend to all Asia countries and the world like Europe and US etc. No one is an island anymore. The war will bring enormous economic disaster, humanity hardship and suffering for many many people, not confined to the Chinese and Japanese.

Cover design for this issue was done by our webmaster James Yin. Thank you James.

Let us hope that the leadership of China and Japan are wiser than that.

The Abe administration’s arrogance of power moment

BY KOICHI NAKANO AND NANCY SNOW - SPECIAL TO THE JAPAN TIMES - JUL 16, 2015

On the cusp of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II when Emperor Hirohito made his historic speech of surrender, the Abe government is attempting to drive through the Diet 11 security bills that will forever alter the landscape of Japan’s postwar history. The nation that does not wage war will be no more if it gets its way.
Guided in its efforts is a military-industrial complex that is salivating to get Japan to share the burden of fighting with its closest ally, the United States. Japan has recently expressed interest in joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organization missile-building consortium, a move in seamless alliance with this New Normal for Japan, a normal that we believe threatens global security.
As scholars from Japan and the U.S., we oppose the new security bills and call on anyone who is unfamiliar with what’s happening to get informed. What we have here is legislation without representation; at its worst, tyranny.
In clear violation of Article 9 of the Constitution, which famously renounces war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as a means of settling international disputes, these bills would provide for Japan’s Self-Defense Forces to cooperate actively with U.S. and other foreign military operations overseas. If adopted, Japan will be able to use military force even when it is not attacked, under the name of collective self-defense. Let us not mince words: this spells the end of Article 9 without ever formally amending it according to due process of law.
We cannot believe any assurances from a prime minister who thinks nothing of the constitutional ban and popular opposition that these security bills will strictly limit Japan’s military role. This legislation opens the door to virtually unfettered government discretion over the use of force that violates Japan’s fundamental principle over six decades of an exclusively self-defense posture.
The Japanese people, having been the only population to suffer atomic bombs, are overwhelmingly in support of maintaining peaceful relations with the world. They wish to protect the sanctity and heritage of Article 9. A nation that renounces war is part of Japan’s peace national brand, and has allowed Japan to develop as a world class economic and culture power with a strong mandate for humanitarian assistance, disaster relief and development aid.
Should these security bills get passed, Japan will no longer be able to advocate for a peace and nonviolence paradigm in national security. Our view is that Japan’s peace Constitution should not be altered but should continue to serve as a model for other countries. It should certainly not be “reinterpreted” arbitrarily by the government of the day.
Article 23 of the Constitution guarantees academic freedom, and it is within this guarantee that we, as public scholars in Japan and signatories to the Association of Scholars Opposed to the Security-related Bills, are speaking out. One of us is an Abe fellow at Keio University and former Fulbright scholar at Sophia University; the other is a political scientist at Sophia University who received the Friend of the Free Press award this spring from the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan.
We stand with the growing political protests from scholars, students, lawyers, workers and mothers that are coalescing against a government displaying total disregard for democratic speech and assembly. Japan is the closest Asian ally to the U.S. and we take this binational alliance of democracies literally and to heart. We oppose this government fait accompli that refuses to listen to citizen debate, discussion, or dialogue. We call on the Abe government to observe the democratic and constitutional due process before it does irreparable damage to the national character of postwar Japan.
The Abe government has shown no concern for the Japanese people. It is attempting to circumvent the Constitution by ramming the security bills through the Diet without the constitutionally mandated process for a constitutional revision (Article 96) requiring a two-third majority of both houses of parliament and a majority support from the people in a special referendum.
We write, backed as we are from thousands of scholars and millions of Japanese who share our opposition, to object to the security bills in principle and process. Our objections are marinated with affection, concern and care for Japan and the Japanese people.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s administration cannot claim to have a popular mandate for imposing these changes, even if we leave aside the unconstitutionality of the bills. It has a large majority in both houses only because of record-high voting abstention rates, a divided opposition, a muzzled media, the bias of the first-past-the-post system, and the enormous disparity of the value of the vote that has been repeatedly ruled to be in a state of unconstitutionality by the courts.
In reality, only one in four voters actively voted for Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party. The prime minister has, nevertheless, said that within 20 to 30 years he will be vindicated; thus, public opinion, which he seems to view with disdain, is dismissed. We believe that the Japanese people deserve more credit and respect than what they are being shown by their government.
These security bills stand against Japan’s well-deserved human security reputation in the world. Human security puts people’s needs and rights first, and views security within the prism of a multidisciplinary understanding of the world that involves development studies, education, science and technology for good, and peaceful international relations.
The United Nation’s Human Development Report of 1994 argues that global human security is about promoting “freedom from want” and “freedom from fear” for all people. With Japan’s growing poverty indices, aging population and record-breaking national debt, these security bills, if passed, will likely lead to greater insecurity just at the time when Japan itself is seeking to become a bigger player again on the world stage. Before Abe flexes his military muscles, indulges himself in historical revisionism and preaches to China about the rule of law, he should observe the principle of rule of law at home.
By turning a blind eye on Abe’s arrogance of power moment, the U.S. risks not only aggravating the regional tension and rivalry in Asia-Pacific, but also antagonizing the Japanese public, who came to embrace the postwar values of constitutionalism, democracy and peace.

China warns Japan against ‘crippling regional peace’ after passage of security bills

AFP-JIJI, JIJI - JUL 17, 2015

BEIJING/SEOUL – China on Thursday urged Tokyo to avoid “crippling regional peace and security” after the Lower House passed bills that could see Japanese troops fight abroad for the first time since World War II.
“It is fully justified to ask if Japan is going to give up its exclusively defence-oriented policy,” China’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in a statement.
“We solemnly urge the Japanese side to … refrain from jeopardising China’s sovereignty and security interests or crippling regional peace and stability,” Hua said in the statement posted on the ministry’s website.
Hua described the passing of the bills as “an unprecedented move since the Second World War.
Japanese forces launched a full-scale invasion of China in 1937 and the wartime history between the Asian powers still heavily colors their relations today.
Beijing — which is also embroiled in a territorial row with Tokyo over disputed islands in the East China Sea — regularly accuses the government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of showing insufficient contrition for the conflict.
Hua referred to the 70th anniversary of Japan’s defeat in its conflict with China, which Beijing calls “the Chinese People’s War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression.”
“We solemnly urge the Japanese side to draw hard lessons from history,” she added.
The vote on Japan’s military marks a victory for Abe and other nationalists, who have ignored popular anger in a bid to break what they see as the shackles of the U.S.-imposed Constitution.
China’s official Xinhua news agency condemned the move, saying it meant “a nightmare scenario has come a step closer for Japanese people and neighbouring nations.
If passed, the bill will “tarnish the reputation of a nation that has earned international respect for its pacifist Constitution over a period of nearly seven decades,” it said.
Meanwhile, South Korea also reacted to the passage of the bills — although in a muted manner.
A South Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman on Thursday called on Japan to stick to its Constitution.
Japan should conduct discussions on its defense policy while adhering to the spirit of the pacifist Constitution, and in a way to contribute to regional peace and stability and in a transparent fashion, the spokesman said at a press conference.
The spokesman reiterated Seoul’s stance that actions that could affect security conditions on the Korean Peninsula and the national interests of South Korea should not be taken without consent from the country.
But the spokesman stopped short of directly making a comment criticizing the Lower House approval of the security bills or showing concerns over the development.
South Korea hopes to continue close consultations with Japan while keeping a close watch on upcoming deliberations on the bills at the Upper House.


探索中国新型政党制度?

来源:澳洲网 作者:蔡家声 时间:2018-03-16 19:31:50 点击:266

最近中国轰轰烈烈举办第十三届全国人大和政协大会,吸引了国际各界媒体和领导人的注意力。

最被人议论的是第十三届全国人大一次会议举行第三次全体会议表决通过《中华人民共和国宪法修正案》。最引人注目的是大会以绝大多数票赞成废除中国主席十年制限制。外媒最关心的是中国国家主席习近平会不会多次连任国家主席。言外之意就是中国会不会走独裁的道路,如当初毛泽东可能犯过的错误导致第二个“文革”的产生等等。

很多西方媒体只看到这一点就胡乱批评。他们明知道这次修宪除了这条还有很多值得欣赏的内容而不提。而且如果习近平真的要独裁的话其实也不需去修改这个限制。因为他已经担任的中国军委主席、中共党总书记等位置本身就没有限制了。从西方理论上来说:绝对权力绝对腐化,在没有其他监督法制的限制的话是可能的。但西方目前的所谓的‘民主法制’也会出现独裁政治的,如果没有好的监督系统控制着他们的领导人。

美国总统布什就是一个例子!他可以在“假证据面前”向伊拉克发动战争而不顾联合国的反对!这不是很独裁的手段吗?很多“假借西方民主制度”的国家领袖们做起事也是很“独裁”,像前新加坡总理李光耀就是经常被人指责的一个。

中国改革开放以来,走自己创造的一条路。这条新路很艰辛,难度大,有错误和曲折那是难免的。比如腐败问题,这腐败问题每个国家都必须面对包括美国澳洲在内。这里没篇幅去讨论。

改革开放以来,中国走自己特色的社会主义道路,从目前获得到的成果,国际都公认是一条行得通的制度!它让中国人民有机会真正地站起来,富起来,强起来并能够在很多方面和国际各个发达国家平起平坐,甚至超过预料。也为世界各国人民创造了很多机会和经济效益,包括澳洲在内。很多西方研究治国的学者、专家也开始接受并赞扬中国的新型政党制度的效力。中国共产党(执政党)领导的多党合作和政治协商制度如能加强政协的监督能力,媒体和人民的监督力度,加上健全法治“以立德政,明大德,守功德,严私德”的文明教育,选贤以能。这套新型的政党制度虽然还有些地方需要改善。让我们拭目以待看它是不是会比西方的一套更好。祝福您,中国!

澳政府应该重写外国干预法案

来源:澳洲网 作者:蔡家声 时间:2018-02-09 18:48:40 点击:187

谭宝总理去年提出的《外国干预法案》,这两个星期来收到澳洲各界人士、人权保护组织、大学界、商业界特别是传播界领袖的反对。反对党工党领袖也不落人后向谭宝政府提出挑战。如果不好好仔细更改“外国干预法案”,他们将反对在国会上通过。

各界反对的最严重的一条是它太大太阔。将涉及维权和人权的问题,特别是对个人民主权利和自由的侵犯。澳洲媒体人士对此更是敏感。工党领袖BILL SHORTEN强调不能因此影响“媒体的自由”。这是澳洲国家的“民主制度的保障”。如果这法案不能保护记者们的工作权利,他不会支持它。

澳洲人报FAIRFAX、澳广等媒体都向国会情报和安全委员进言:警告政府这法案如不修改,在现在所提的规则下,编辑和记者们可能会被关入牢狱达15年之久。如果他们收到并刊出“不合法的信息”,包括他们工作中如果收到、查到传播“不合法的信息”。

外国宗教组织、大学组织、商业组织等如果也不小心刊出或传播“不合国家情报和安全法”也会遭受同等的待遇,更别说个别人士了。好像回到了“法西斯独裁的言论封建时代去了”。

澳洲这个民主、自由、文明、透明的社会将会变成一个人人自危的第三等社会和国家。

澳洲华人对这个“外国干预法案”,也有很大的不满!我们是澳洲公民,我们也有义务维护澳洲的民主、自由和个人的话语权和言论自由。谭宝政府曾经有意无意地暗中提示这个“法案”是针对中国背景的华侨、华人和留学生,生怕他们都会变成中国的间谍等等。真是天大的笑话!

他以为做间谍这么容易呀!他应该出来澄清这一点。因为如果不澄清将会造成特大的误会,制造其他澳洲人对澳洲华人的不信任,甚至增加对澳洲华人的排挤和压迫,造成不必要的种族之间的误解和冲突。因此我建议全澳的华人领袖有机会要向谭宝政府好好游说进言,要他们的政府以后发言时要澄清,并向各界澳洲公民说清楚。澳洲华人当然有犯罪的,但绝大多数和其他澳洲公民一样是奉公守法的好公民。我们移居澳洲就是冲着澳洲的民主、自由、的法治社会而来的。我们也尊重其他各民族并支持澳洲非常成功的多元文化国策,和公平公正的法律等等。因此,我们也将支持反对党领袖BILL SHOREN和各界社会、宗教、人权、媒体领袖所提出的修改《外国干预法案》的一些不良的条律!



澳洲不该盲目跟随美国的军事策略

来源:澳洲网 作者:蔡家声 时间:2018-02-02 22:01:16 点击:183

不久前美国国防部长James Matti公布了美国最新的国防报告,中间提到中国和俄罗斯迅速扩张的军事实力变得具攻击性,将成为美国在国家安全上最优先应对的目标。没想到澳洲国防部长Marise Payne上周末,未加深思,就在澳洲人报表态支持美国这一观点,表示澳洲和美国有相同的战略担忧。澳洲副总理Barnaby Joyce也在上星期日表示认同Marise Payne的观点:这让我感到有点惊异。美国好想要再搞一场“冷战思维”的外交战略。难道澳洲就要马上跟从吗?

幸好在我还没写这篇评论之前,我很欣慰看到澳洲总理Malcolm Turnbull和外长Julie Bishop及时澄清立场。Julie Bishop星期一出面澄清地告诉Sky News电视台“澳洲看不到本地区受到中国和俄罗斯的威胁,我们肯定不把中国视为一个威胁……我们对俄罗斯和中国有着截然不同的看法。我们不视俄罗斯和中国对澳洲构成一个军事威胁”。总理Malcolm Turnbull也表态支持外长的观点,我要赞一赞他们。

是的,在这21世纪文明时代,“冷战思维”真是不可思议的落后“外交政策”。它只会把政治家执政者带入“牛角尖”里头。它也会引起不必要的争议甚至用“战争”来“解决”纠纷和不同见解,国与国之间一不小心也会因“冷战思维”打起来。中东这几场“战争”就是这样打起来的。各国的“恐怖主义”者,原本是一个“法治问题”,在美国和俄罗斯操作下变成了一场看似“打不完”的拉锯战。战争不发生在美国和俄罗斯的领土上,但他们是战争的主谋。以公理来说将来联合国有机会判他们为战争罪犯,为那些无辜牺牲和受难的人民讨个公道赔偿等。请美国和俄罗斯领导人再三深思。他们为中东造成多少人祸的灾难,使千千万万无辜人民家破人亡,变成无家可归的难民。如果战争发生在他们的国土上,他们会怎样想呢?

澳洲更不应该盲目追随美国在亚太的军事战略。美国拥有这么多的军事基地是用来做什么?国防吗?在千里外设国防?不可能!想再找机会挑起战争?这个可能性是比较确切的!所以美国就到处去制造舆论,制造一些“假想敌”那他们的军火商就可以大卖特卖,其产品让“亚洲人打亚洲人”甚至也会打到澳洲的国土上来。第二世界大战日本轰炸达尔文、悉尼港还历历在目。澳洲千万不要重蹈覆辙。

是选择和平外交还是战争外交呢?只有疯子才会选择“战争外交”。

达沃斯(DAVOS)经济论坛的重要性

来源:澳洲网 作者:蔡家声 时间:2018-01-26 18:05:30 点击:25

蔡家声世界经济论坛第48届年会将于23日至26日在瑞士达沃斯(DAVOS)(World Economic Forum)举行。今年的主题是“在分化的世界中打造共同命运”。

同个时间我也看到媒体报道:国际慈善机构OXFAM22日发表一份报告指出“全球最富有的42人合起来共拥有财富14,500亿美元,相当于全球37亿人合起来的财富”。去年创造的82%财富都跑进了全球最富有的1%人的口袋中,反映出全球贫富悬殊的严重性。OXFAM呼吁各国政府采取有效措施缩小贫富差距,减少社会社区严重的分化和不公的现象。

World Economic Forum世界经济论坛发布的声明:本届年会希望在各国地缘战略竞争恶化的背景下重申国际合作的意义,引导全球共同探讨具有共同利益的重大问题并推动全球联手解决人类共同面对的挑战。在“分化的世界中”如何打造“共同命运”?

以上“贫富差距”的数目真吓人,这不但发生在最富有的世界第一大经济体的美国,还有第二大人口大国的印度!而且它更发生在那些“一穷二白”的所谓发展中的国家!这证明当今的“资本主义经济体”不是一个最理想的“经济体”!它存在着非常不公平看似“公平”的经济贸易体制和金融系统!它有大鱼吃小鱼,强者食弱者的“野蛮”的交易!有钱的人有权势的人,用钱赚更多钱,有权者利用权势赚取更多更大的机会去赚钱!但是最严重的一点是他们这些钱都是千千万万劳苦大众为他们卖力替他们赚的钱!千千万万的劳苦大众工人等所得到的酬劳是那么的少!这个世界里还有很多国家很多地方的劳苦大众,像奴隶那样替“资本家”做牛做马,过着吃不饱而饿不死的生活!更别说他们的教育和医疗的条件!试想我们生活在所谓“科技发达,文明开放,自由民主,崇善人道”的21世纪的人类,为什么没有人替那些做牛做马的劳苦大众好好去想个办法来解决他们的困境!他们都不是生来便是穷的!很多原因造成他们生活在那个境况!联合国大会也好,世界经济论坛大会也好,这些拥有执政权力,对全球“经济金融”社会改革有着举足轻重的决策者,你们难道不能想出一个更好的体制来好好造福人群?我可以说这42人大富豪中很多的钱都不该是他们拥有的,是社会是国家的,是其他劳苦大众做牛做马的,应该分享的一点一滴!

President's Message

Great Harmony World, Great civilised Rule of Law, Peaceful Development!
Dr Ka Sing Chua

The world in the 21st century has seen many unexpected changes. Through the wisdom of human innovation, new technologies bring us much convenience. Especially in the areas of transportation and the Internet, communication and communication around the world are provided with very convenient tools and technologies, which have made the world smaller and brought peoples closer together.
The great old Chinese saying : " The Great Way forward is to create way for a fair and just Society for all peoples" , can still be used for the world today. The rulers of civilization all over the world all know that to maintain long-term peace and stability, we must use a set of civilized legal system fair and just to deal with the disputes and dissents of all circles of society. Such a society is capable of peaceful development and the peoples living in such a society, regardless of their background, beliefs, cultures, languages, etc., which may be different from one another. However under this set of fair and just civilization and legal system, we can respect each other, tolerate each other, help each other and live in harmony, and live a happy and peaceful life together.

Many countries in the world, with the assistance of the United Nations, have now embarked on this path. This is the greatest achievement in the history of mankind this century. With these principles in mind, all rulers need not use force to kill one another, cheating one another, colluding with the Regime and fightiing for profit, even waging civil war and foreign wars.

The method to solve the disputes and dissents of the various factions of the people can also use the common civilized legal system to control these undesirable rulers! They are not ignorant but selfish, cannot control themselves, so we must use the powerful rule of law to limit their abuse of power, causing harm to their people and their other bad behavior!

Mankind is moving forward on the road of building a "Great Harmony World, Universal civilised Rule of Law and Peaceful Development". No matter how hard this road is, I believe we human have enough wisdom to create such a One World. Under the guidance of the United Nations's Great Charter and Constitution, we can restrict the powers and actions of those rulers who do not obey the rules or the rule of law. That is why we have "peacekeeping forces, International Tribunals, sanctions rules of international law.

Although some people in many countries are still in dire straits, the Internet, with the innovative wisdom of mankind, will help continue to improve and improve each country's civilized legal system and international civilized legal system by means of peaceful development.

So I am pleased to see that the disputes between Huawei of China and the United States can also be resolved through the civilized legal system. Western countries, including Australia, which pride themselves to promote civilized rule of law, should also do so instead of using their military and financial strength to bully backward countries and encroach on the land and wealth of small and weak countries as they have in the past. If we all adhere to a set of fair and just civilized system of governance, there will be hope for the Great Harmony World in the making eventually.

Dear All


It have been a while that I have written to you. There are many reasons behind it.


One of the main reasons is that we have lost our original website naming right i.e. www.huaren.org because our original owner , a foundation member of huaren.org and World Huaren Federation, decided not to pay its subscription in USA. I offers to pay for him before but was ignored.

Luckily with some foresight, I have registered another similar website : www.huarenworldnet.org based in Australia so we can continue the work and objectives of World Huaren Federation.

With the help of our webmaster James Yin, we manage to transfer all the information from previous huaren.orgwebsite to this new website i.e. www. huarenworldnet.org so you can continue to link up with us and enjoy what we can offer.


Last December 2017, I was elected to the Australian National Board of Medical Association for Prevention of Warwww.mapw.org.au and its International Australian Representative. Last year ICAN , International Campaign for Abolition of Nuclear Weapons, after 10 years of lobbying , managed to pass through a motion in UN to Abolish the Nuclear Weapons with 129 nations supporting it. For its effort, initiated by MAPW in Australia 10 years ago, ICAN was awarded 2017 Noble Peace Prize.


MAPW has done a great job in promoting a world without wars and we hope one day we have enough good leaders around the world and with support of all world citizens, we can stop wars among the so-called "civilised humankind".


USA is the main culprit of wars. I found out from an Italian website Notiziario24.com recently of the fact that since the Independence of USA in 1776 , she has been involved in 222 wars around the world including many invasive wars. It is pity for such a nation which also uses to acclaims that USA is the world most civilised nation, ends up in creating so much disastrous human sufferings and deaths through wars and military conflicts. War always starts with a silly excuse: using war to kill war for peace and always somebody else is wrong.


Having stated the fact, I still hope USA which has lots of the skill and talent and has achieved so much great thing for humanity, will eventually produce some great leadership to lead the world to eternal peace via United Nations under the Rule of Laws to solve all human conflicts peacefully , so that all of us , not some of us , can live in peace and harmony like a big family.


May Peace reigns.

特朗普用几十颗导弹换来了什么?特朗普得到了什么?特朗普就职以来,对美国最大的贡献,就是为道琼斯指数贡献了8000点,由18000点上涨到了26000点。道琼斯指数每上涨一个点,美国就增加15亿美元,上涨8000点就是增加了12万亿美元,75万亿人民币。相当美国2017年GDP的2/3,超过了中国2017年GDP的总和。这就是特朗普执政一年来对美国的贡献。千万不要象重农学派否认工业会创造实际财富那样来否定虚拟经济,认为虚拟财富都是虚的。虚拟经济的“虚”是指虚拟经济并不创造使用价值,但是它所创造的价值却是实实在在的。就如同股票是虚拟资本,但是股价上涨给股民带来的财富却是真实的一样。
特朗普这一年多为美国带来的120万亿美元的财富是哪里来的?与历史上的帝国主义一样,同样是来自于对世界各地的掠夺,主要是对中国人民的掠夺。中国经济30多年高速增长,可是中国股市却20多年持续低迷,中国经济都增长到哪里去了?从2000点起步一路大涨到26000点的美国道琼斯指数,准确回答了这个问题。道琼斯指数的增长仍然是对世界各地特别是对中国掠夺的结果,是掠夺方式已经完全不同。最早是通过暴力直接掠夺,二战以后又是通过不合理分工进行掠夺,现在则是通过恶化未来预期的方式进行掠夺。虚拟经济最本质的特征,就是预期决定价格,预期决定财富分配。美国等发达国家就是通过改变对世界各地的预期,来调整和控制财富在世界各地的分配。
就像现在这样,通过制造叙利亚危机来恶化对俄罗斯的未来预期,通过制造朝鲜半岛危机来恶化对中国的预期,通过在世界各地制造危机来恶化对世界各地的预期,让投资者感到世界各地都有风险,只有美国才是资金的唯一避风港,从而导致世界各地的资金潮水般涌入美国股市,推动了道琼斯指数的上涨,鼓起了美国投资者的腰包。由于美国绝大部分人都持有股票债券基金等有价证券,这就在客观上把中国老百姓和世界各地老百姓创造的财富,变成了美国的财富。
反观我们失去了什么?2007年我们和美国股市都是6000点,现在美国股市到了26000点,可我们却跌到了3000点,如果再扣除中国股市只进不出的发行新股因素,中国股市的实际点数早已经跌到千点以下。为什么全世界的资本都到中国来淘金赚钱,可就是不敢长期留在中国资本市场?就是因为台湾问题,南海问题,东海问题,朝鲜半岛问题等等一系列周边问题,在不断恶化着对中国经济的未来预期,导致大家只要挣到钱就向美国转移,不仅外资这样,企业这样,包括个人也是这样。
这才是美国是中国发展的最重要最有效战略。虽然多年来我们一直呼吁这个问题,但是直到今天也没有几个国人重视这个问题。
就拿最近世界的矛盾和冲突来说,结果又是在恶化对中国的预期。美国通过台湾旅行法,实质上是在替台湾宣布独立,特朗普这一手相当歹毒,完全粉碎了人们对中国未来的良好预期。道理很简单,一个国家连自己的领土都保不住,连外国立法干预自己的领土都挡不住,这个国家未来又怎么会有前途?未来的动荡和战争又怎么能够避免?必然会导致大量长期资金纷纷离开中国。这本来是对中国影响天大的事情。可是特朗普一喊打贸易战,又一喊打叙利亚,再摆出与俄罗斯打核大战的架势,所有注意力就都被吸引过去了,台湾问题反倒被中国人忘了个干干净净。结果又被特朗普安放了一个恶化中国预期的定时炸弹。可见此前我们的判断没错,特朗普的确是一个运用毛主席战略战术的高手。
现在中国怎么办?就是要走在时代前列,把战略重点转到恶化对美国的预期上来。


An old member of World Huaren Federation Mr Edward Liu shared a post while travelling Australia

Some 2 million Chinese tourists out of the 130 million Chinese who went outbound to see the world last year ended up in Aussie land.

These numbers are expected to surge as China's Chinese millennial generation of "jiulinghou," and "linglinghou" generation start growing up....become more and more affluent...and more motivated to see, explore, and travel all over the world.

Affluence, material wealth, material progress, a leapfrogging economic powerhouse, I have come to conclude, do not necessarily bring about good manners, basic civility, respect for one another, and cross-cultural and multi-national sensitivity and human smarts and the conduct of a "junji," not a "xiaoren."

Confucianism, Taoism, and good solid Chinese civilizational values are slowly being undermined, corroded, threatened, and jettisoned in today's Chuna.

How do you comport yourself, conduct yourself, and behave in an appropriate way, respect local culture when you travel to a foreign country and interface with a foreign culture?

How do you manage the "human stampede" of tourism without spoiling the ultimate purpose of traveling....learning and taking in the local culture, history, beautiful sites and scenery..without behaving boorishly, foolishly, brutishly and rudely?

I have no good answers...just good questions.

I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly of Chinese tourism.

I honor those Chinese who are sophisticated and culturally respectful and really curious to learn and expand their minds...not waste time in shophahilistic binges.

There is a swirling backlash and growing resentment against the "ugly Chinaman tourist" all over the world....

It reminds me of the ugly history of the "ugly American" traveling in Eurooe or the "hooligan Brit" traveling in Thailand or the "filthy young Western begpacker" in Asia-Pacific.

China is deficient and lacking in culture progress and culture capital

Moral and ethical education is wanting in today's bling bling China.

Dengist reforms, after 40 years, has made China an economic powerhouse and superpower.....but economic wealth does not necessarily equate to civil and civic wealth.

I mean no malice to the Chinese millenials who love to travel.

I just want them " to do the right thing' as a proud Chinese and not an arrogant Chinese...decent, courteous, civil and respectful of others and sensitive to local culture wherever they travel.


Letter in today’s Age

Suspend weapon sales

Tony Wright's excellent commentary (The Age, 21/2) bemoaning lack of ethics highlights a critical government theme. When elected, the Coalition government replaced the standards of ministerial ethics with a statement of ministerial standards.

This lack of ethics is illustrated by our weapons sales to the Saudis, when they stand accused of war crimes and are leading the blockade of Yemen which has caused the death of more than 85,000 children. Arms sales to Saudi Arabia have been suspended by Germany, Finland, the Netherlands and Denmark, and condemned by the UK House of Lords and the US Congress. Australia should suspend sales.

Margaret Beavis, Medical Association for Prevention of War, Carlton


The world in the 21st century has seen many unexpected changes. Through the wisdom of human innovation, new technologies bring us much convenience. Especially in the areas of transportation and the Internet, communication and communication around the world are provided with very convenient tools and technologies, which have made the world smaller and brought peoples closer together.
The great old Chinese saying : " The Great Way forward is to create way for a fair and just Society for all peoples" , can still be used for the world today. The rulers of civilization all over the world all know that to maintain long-term peace and stability, we must use a set of civilized legal system fair and just to deal with the disputes and dissents of all circles of society. Such a society is capable of peaceful development and the peoples living in such a society, regardless of their background, beliefs, cultures, languages, etc., which may be different from one another. However under this set of fair and just civilization and legal system, we can respect each other, tolerate each other, help each other and live in harmony, and live a happy and peaceful life together.

Many countries in the world, with the assistance of the United Nations, have now embarked on this path. This is the greatest achievement in the history of mankind this century. With these principles in mind, all rulers need not use force to kill one another, cheating one another, colluding with the Regime and fightiing for profit, even waging civil war and foreign wars.

The method to solve the disputes and dissents of the various factions of the people can also use the common civilized legal system to control these undesirable rulers! They are not ignorant but selfish, cannot control themselves, so we must use the powerful rule of law to limit their abuse of power, causing harm to their people and their other bad behavior!

Mankind is moving forward on the road of building a "Great Harmony World, Universal civilised Rule of Law and Peaceful Development". No matter how hard this road is, I believe we human have enough wisdom to create such a One World. Under the guidance of the United Nations's Great Charter and Constitution, we can restrict the powers and actions of those rulers who do not obey the rules or the rule of law. That is why we have "peacekeeping forces, International Tribunals, sanctions rules of international law.

Although some people in many countries are still in dire straits, the Internet, with the innovative wisdom of mankind, will help continue to improve and improve each country's civilized legal system and international civilized legal system by means of peaceful development.

So I am pleased to see that the disputes between Huawei of China and the United States can also be resolved through the civilized legal system. Western countries, including Australia, which pride themselves to promote civilized rule of law, should also do so instead of using their military and financial strength to bully backward countries and encroach on the land and wealth of small and weak countries as they have in the past. If we all adhere to a set of fair and just civilized system of governance, there will be hope for the Great Harmony World in the making eventually.


The Multicultural Communities Council of NSW position on Immigration:

As Australians, we are interested and concerned about our immigration policies particularly where such policies would move Australia towards better planning and prosperity for future generations. Hence, we must not allow the governments to dictate how immigration should be managed but prefer our government to accept community views and co-op them as partners in determining the nation’s future in immigration. For more details see the article “Metamorphosis of the Immigration Department”.

This presidential style election optics was won by Morrison. In comparing the federal campaigns of the last 50 years, this one offered no frills or thrills and really, pretty boring. I only watched the debates between the two leaders since other programs were really uninteresting. Yes, I also believe my franking credits will be lost. On public performance, Morrison came on top of Shorten. Yes, winning the election is easy compared to governing the country for the next 3 years. Good luck PM Morrison.

Story: What the Morrison government promised to do next

Congratulations to PM Morrison who won the Federal election and thanks to the Mr Shorten for running a good campaign. Now the election is over, we hope PM Morrison will govern for all Australians whether they voted for him or not. There were two issues that favour Labor, ie. the internal spat within the Liberal Party and the too far right policies of Minister Dutton. The hope that these two issues will give Labor an edge on a tight election however, the electorate has spoken. The blame for disunity was shouldered by Mr Abbott and he lost his seat. The unity of LNP and other minor Queensland parties was effective enough to counter any anti-right policies; ALP lost Queensland hence the election. Minister Dutton retains his seat despite strong campaign against him by GetUp is a reflection of Queensland politics.
Although there is no change of government, the issues simmering in the community have not gone away and they include some issues on immigration, citizenship, health etc.
Despite all the rhetoric about Chinese influence and interference, there appear to be no evidence of such activity that seriously warrant our attention in this federal election.
The priority issue still remains how Australia would navigate in the Asian century and Asian sphere in dealing with a rising China and a hawkish US policies on China, without jeopardizing the mutually beneficial economic benefits with China and maintain our military relations with the US.


CAVAN HOGUE. Kishore Mahbubani on China and the US

Posted on 24 April 2020 by Callum Foote
In a most interesting article in The Economist, Kishore Mahbubani argues that the post-COVIC-19 world will be characterized by an accelerated shift in power from the West to East Asia.
The article is well worth reading in full. Mahbubani says the world will see that the West has failed dismally to handle the crisis while East Asian countries have emerged as the most successful. The age of Western dominance is over.
China did make a mess at the beginning but later picked up . China will become more influential as it becomes the economic superpower while Europe and the USA will decline. Mahbubani says that while some are democracies and some are not, the successful Asian countries share a belief in the importance of strong government based on a scientifically educated meritocracy.
He thinks a Confucian background is important. This includes China where most people support the system. It is hard to disagree with his basic point that the West has emerged floundering from the crisis while a number of Asian countries have emerged stronger and with their reputations enhanced. It is not about democracy versus authoritarianism. Both Xi and Trump got it wrong at the beginning but Xi recovered while Trump still flounders.
So what is the relevance of this for Australia which is not mentioned? Australia and New Zealand have been just as successful as the East Asians, and Singapore has now run into trouble. Mahbubani says rightly that many countries in Southeast Asia would prefer the USA to remain in the region to act as a balance to Chinese hegemony but Australia continues to take sides.
Already the Foreign Minister has followed the US line in publicly criticising China while not mentioning the American failures which may pose a threat to the world. John McCarthy has brilliantly dissected the flaws in this approach in the AFR & P&I. It is perhaps easy to forget the humiliation inflicted on China by the countries that now lecture it on human rights and democracy. China has not forgotten and the slogan China has stood up reflects this. We also add fuel to the belief that we are just a US puppet.
I hope Mahbubani is right in arguing that as a major trading nation China has a vested interest in the rules-based order (which the US has veered away from) and that China is not interested in exporting its system.
China, he says, can live with a multipolar world which the USA finds difficult. This has been true to date but what the future holds remains to be seen. He is also right that while Trump has been an unmitigated disaster, it is not just about him. There is growing confusion and lack of confidence in the country while China ‘s self-confidence is growing. But read the article!
Kishore Mahbubani is a former Singaporean diplomat and Founding Dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, NUS from 2004 to 2017. He is currently a distinguished fellow at the Asia Research Institute, NUS and the author of numerous books on Asia and the West, most recently “Has China Won?”. This article is part of a series from outside contributors on the world after covid-19. More can be found at economist.com/coronavirus
Cavan Hogue is a former diplomat who has worked in Asia, Europe and the Americas as well as at the UN. He also worked at ANU and Macquarie universities.

Why we should abolish and ban the use of nuclear weapons?

As the war drum is beating louder and louder in the South China Seas between USA and China, the following points are of concern to us as humankind living in this planet. There is a small risk of deliberate nuclear use and a larger risk of inadvertent nuclear use in a future US-China conflict or any conflict among countries who possess nuclear weapons.

Many people unfortunately have no clue of how serious and scary if a nuclear war breaks out. The atomic bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki 75 years ago pale into insignificant rabble compare to modern nuclear weapons.

The scary thing is that there is enough nuclear arsenal to blast us off the face of this earth. In a nuclear war, China may be wiped off in 55 minutes and the US will also be wiped out 10-15 minutes later, not counting where Russian nukes will land! A single nuclear warhead could kill millions of people if drop in New York and Shanghai, with lasting and devastating humanitarian and environmental consequences. Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea possess an estimated total of nearly 14,000 modern nuclear weapons, many times more powerful and enough to kill us all and turn the planet into rabbles.

Nuclear weapons are the most destructive, inhumane and indiscriminate weapons ever created. Both in the scale of the devastation they cause, and in their uniquely persistent, spreading, genetically damaging radioactive fallout, they are unlike any other weapons. A single nuclear bomb detonated over a large city could kill millions of people. The use of tens or hundreds of nuclear bombs would disrupt the global climate, causing widespread famine.

The use of less than one percent of the nuclear weapons in the world could disrupt the global climate and threaten as many as two billion people with starvation in a nuclear famine in the long-term. The thousands of nuclear weapons possessed by the US and Russia could bring about a nuclear winter, destroying the essential ecosystems on which all life depends. It will render the planet we all live on unliveable and we will have nowhere to hide.
More information can be obtained from the following three websites : www.mapw.org.au; www.ippnw.org; www.icanw.org

Nuclear weapons are the most inhumane and indiscriminate weapons ever created. That is why it is time to end them, before they end us. They have catastrophic humanitarian and environmental consequences that span decades and cross generations; they breed fear and mistrust among nations, as some governments can threaten to wipe out entire cities in a heartbeat; the high cost of their production, maintenance and modernisation diverts public funds from health care, education, disaster relief and other vital services and more. Banning these immoral, inhumane weapons under international law was a critical step along the path to ending them. With the adoption of the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) on July 7th, 2017, the world's majority took a critical step towards making that nuclear-weapon-free future a reality. Read more about how the TPNW works >

TNPW have been signed and ratified by 46 members of UN and we need 4 more members to ratify it for it to become an International Law banning the use of nuclear weapon in any war. We urge Australian Government to sign and ratify and stand up for not just Australian people but peoples of the whole world and for all the children's children so that they can have a bright future.
Is that too much to ask for?

钓鱼岛值得一争,但不值得一战

中国与日本由钓鱼岛引发的争端不断升级,大有一发不可收拾之势,有人说双方非打不可。因为双方继续固守各自的“强硬”立场,如有误判或意气用事,擦枪走火就极有可能。

日本与中国有千丝万缕的文化渊源,难道双方真的不能以文明之理来服人,一定要用“野蛮”的“武力”手段一决高下吗?

依笔者之见,退一步海阔天空,中日要重启理性对话的大门。即便真的谈不下去,也应该考虑让国际法庭来裁决。

如果国与国之间有什么争端不能解决,完全可以提交给国际法庭来和平解决。“法治”胜过“武治”,这应该是每一个有远见的领导人都知道的道理。我们已经看到,在法治不健全的国家,企图用武力来统治的政权最终都引火自焚。叙利亚就是崇尚“武治”,把一个好好的国家弄得四分五裂。

一个国家要长治久安,必须以法律来治国而不是以武力来治国,武力只能用来维护真理、惩罚犯罪的人。这是人类历史文明的基石。如果用武力来决定谁对谁错,那么胜者不一定是对的一方,而败者不一定是错的一方。这不但解决不了问题,反而会加深矛盾,搞得两败俱伤,都没有好结果。

中日如果开战,将影响整个亚洲甚至整个世界经济的命脉,世界第二和第三大经济国首当其冲,承受得起吗?

两国如果真的谈不好如何解决钓鱼岛的主权问题,大不了告上国际法庭,各自引经据典辩论公堂,看看最后真理在哪一方,哪一方才是钓鱼岛的真正主人。

我认为,钓鱼岛值得中日在国际公堂联合国主持下力争、理争,但不值得双方为之一战!



Dear Kasing,
This edition of the Huaren magazine is by far the best of any production I have seen globally.
Obviously, the standard of the magazine, as judged by the caliber of the authors and the content, is sophisticated and intellectual, has jumped leaps and bounds.
Please accept my personal congratulations to a publication, now in the leading edge of the Chinese Diaspora. Keep the standard up and keep it coming.
Congratulations, once again and well done.

Dr Anthony Pun,
National President
