I have written frequently on what many may consider the ethnostate that is dearest to my heart, the Land of the Rising Sun. But Nippon was not my first interest in Asia, nor the first ethnostate. To that we must thank the second historical dynasty of ancient China, the Chou Dynasty and it's successor, the Ch'in Dynasty. Both dynasties contributed to the cultural and political nature of the Chinese people, culture, and state. Interestingly, the modern Japanese Imperial House practices rituals that originate in the Chou, Ch'in, Han, and T'ang Dynasties. The Japanese based their high culture and imperial religious rites on the Land of the Setting Sun.
Frequent readers should be familiar with my travels in the Land of The Rising Sun and the example Japan sets for the race based ethnostate. Japan is safe, prosperous, confident, and a pleasant place to live. The great relief in traveling in Japan is the freedom from crime and terrorism the Japanese enjoy. Whether it be petty crime, major crime, or terrorism, there just isn't a problem.
I started my studies of the east as an Old China Hand, a common reference not just to the first merchants in China, but to the first generation of scholars of China, exemplified by Thomas Wade and Henry Giles who produced the first widely use Romanization system of the most common and official dialect of Chinese, Mandarin.
However, it was not until this past year I made my first visit to the Middle Kingdom, but only to the outlying province of Taiwan. Nothing much was a surprise, under the leadership of Chiang Kai-shek, the Republic of China made many cultural, political, and administrative decisions that created the modern, prosperous mini-state located on the island of Formosa. Formosa was always an outlier of the Chinese State. It was not brought into the Chinese orbit until the fall of the Ming Dynasty, where Chinese revanchists fled there under Cheng Ch’eng-kung, an Imperial official who refused to recognize the Manchu conquest of China. Later the Portuguese took control, only to be ousted by the later Ch'ing Dynasty, who then surrendered the island to the newly westernized Japan.
But moving forward, my recent visit brought forth many lessons that I have learned from Japan. First, Taiwan or ROC is a Chinese place, culturally, linguistically, and racially. Although just five days in Taipei, I saw few foreigners. One Indian on the streets of the Dazhi District I was staying in, the usual gweilo tourists, what the Chinese call westerners, ghost people, quite a few Taiwanese-Americans, and one Black American working at the hotel I stayed at. On the streets, Taipei was a Chinese city. And how clean and efficient it was. I would say that the Taipei subway system is more modern and cleaner than the Tokyo subway system. To a certain extent that is to be expected, as the Taipei system is newer, but cleaner, brighter, and more modern in most areas.
But similarly to Japan, it was safe. But different from Japan was the lack of police. Being in law enforcement, that is one of the things I notice while traversing the city. Taipei must be one of the most under-policed cities in the world. In five days, I can say I saw about that number of police officers, even after walking past the Taipei City Police Department headquarters.
The discerning reader might immediately connect those two things; few foreigners and few police. Despite being the heir of one of the modern right-wing police states, the legacy of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, there is little that shouts police state, a crime problem, or immigrant based Muslim terrorism or crime.
And that is because, like Japan, Taiwan has decided to keep the problem out of their country so they don't end up like the United States, burdened with the anarcho-tyranny of racial minority crime or imported race or Muslim based terrorism. Similarly situated states, such as Singapore decided to deal with the Muslim problem with a very efficient secret police problem and an overt program of Sinification of the population. But Singapore's Muslim problem is indigenous, not imported. But as Taiwan has, Singapore has imposed a top-down culture of its own based on Confucianism and prosperity. Taiwan has only had to provide prosperity, but it also unified its people with a Confucian system of respect for authority, respect for elders, education, prosperity, and room for advancement based on merit.
Unfortunately, there is little of that in the United States today. There is no recognition of merit today, only race, sex, and sexual orientation. Consequently, without a common sense of purpose, and more importantly, a common race and culture, we have nothing but conflict and resentment that has only come to a head in recent days with massive violence by racial minorities, homosexuals, and Democrats. This has come over the years to require an every growing law enforcement establishment, where many are part of the problem, like Janet Napolitano, Eric Holder, Marilyn Mosby, ICE SVU, and Loretta Lynch. The lesson learned is not that we need lots of police to keep the diversity crime under control, but an ethnostate where where people share race, language, and a vision of a healthy society.
So, here'd to the heirs of the Republic of Doctor Sun Yat-sen and Chiang Kai-shek. They have shown us the way to a clean, peaceful, and prosperous future. To paraphrase Benjamin Franklin, we have gave you an ethnostate, and you couldn't keep it. It is up to President Trump and us to take it back. It will only be good for us if we emulate Taiwan and Japan. Actually, it will be even better, as we will be on Mars if we end the diversity obsession and non-white immigration as Paul Kersey taught us.
