What is the original source of conflict ?

Leechard says:

Greed is not the original source. Though it seems to be greed in every conflict. If the fighting parties can reduce some of their greediness, conflict will not develop. 

But deep inside the greediness, there must be an inner power which was so strong that greediness was born. Greed had its own source. 

People do not know how to love each other. All because of a materialistic mind is functioning behind. If they do not love each other, then they will fight each other. They will turn eternal happiness into eternal unhappiness. 

But why? 

What is the source of greediness?

Lack of wisdom, I would say. 

Or stupidity. Only the very wise people, only people with some wisdom, would have known the secret to heal the wound of conflicts. That is something we call it wisdom. 

If you were wise enough, you would know how to live a better life by avoiding the painful source of hatred, you will find happiness. And conflicts were only greediness, sometimes.

Hi, Pope Francis: Should we love Terrorists?

Leechard says:

The most important part of Jesus teaching is that you should love your enemy. Or else, you are no different from that of the bandits. Bandits love their love ones too. 

But when the terrorist kills us, shall we love them? Or, how are we going to love them? 

When I heard about the media and the leaders declared their determination to kill all terrorists on earth, I was rather doubted whether they were justified. 

When a single terrorist carried a bomb to kill himself and people nearby, I just wondered what was going on in his mind. 

What did he think when he determined to kill himself and others?
If he was wrong, which I never doubt, then what was the cause of his error? 

It is easy to tell the world a determination that someone will kill all terrorists on earth. 

Yet it is more difficult to kill the roots of terrorism. And that root is deeply planted inside the Western mind. 

Old testament had encouraged people to kill and to hate the non-believers. And that very belief had been spread into other religions. Only Jesus had said you should love your enemy. 

But if we are going to love the enemy, My Dearest Pope, can you tell us how? Should we declare the error in the Bible first? 



I remain, 
Your honest fellow human being

Can one man save the world ?

Leechard says:



The answer is definitely yes. Yes, one man or one woman or one child can save the world.

And this is a very important thought every one should had put that in memory. 

It was said that the flapping of one butterfly can cause a huge storm in another half of the globe. Every action of the human behavior is linked up one another. One action can produce another action and then another. Every effort is useful.

That is extremely important. 

If you believe in this, you will have strength. 

If you don't, you will lose strength. Many would say I am but a nobody and nobody could have nothing to do. 

That was totally harmful. 

Every one and every action is useful and could have a change to lead to another action. 

Remember this and you are saved.

Can the Powers change the world ?

Leechard says:


Mediocre people say that if you cannot change the world, then better change yourself. 

The next question will be, if a single person cannot do much to change the world, can the Powerful countries do it? 

Can major powerful countries like the US, Russia and China push the world to a better place? 

Can they help prevent the global warming and stop the famines in Africa? 

Of course they can if they wish to do so.

They keep fighting each other and they do not share thoughts.

I wish they would consider: 

To build up a common understanding of the human situation and find out a way to do something.

If you cannot change the world, what will you do?

Leechard says:

The standard answer is to change yourself. You can easily find many:

5 tips on how to change your attitude
10 famous quotes about how to change in life, your self or the world
8 methods to change your own attitude
7 ideas about changing yourself
2 ways to...........

That is philosophy for the poor, or the mediocrity. 

It is hard to imagine the Indian philosophy about the universe had dominated the West. 

They would say the universe is perfect and not necessary to change. You can only change yourself. 

It is very different from the Chinese philosophy. The ancient Chinese thought that the universe was not balanced, and it needed the effort of human beings to help. 

The world needs progress. If one man cannot change it, then bring in more people.

Why is ugliness ugly?

Leechard says:


I do not need to consult a scholar to tell me what is ugly. Any one knows. 

Ugliness comes from human being. Nature is never ugly. 

Modern time is a time of ugliness. Other times are not. 

It is like nostalgic song. Nostalgic songs are from other time. New songs seldom have the feeling. New songs are mostly commercial and have no soul. 

Any thing with a soul is beautiful. Any thing lacks a soul is ugly. It is as simple as that. Yet we cannot do away the ugly domination in our time. 

We are living in ugliness.

Money is only consideration. We need money to live. No money spells peril. 

But this is the problem of amphibians. You can only choose one to live on. Either to live for the thing you like to do or live for money. 

Materialism is the major trend of modern world. It brings in soulless human beings. That is the source of ugliness. 

Materialism kills the soul in a secret way. Seldom do we know that our souls are gone. We are not happy because we have no soul, or living in a badly damaged soul.    

We cannot do away materialism. We are not able to do away materialism. Without the strong attraction of money, we would go back to medieval ages. 

It is the same as black and white, sweet and bitter, day and night. 

We wish things to be beautiful, yet we cannot do away ugliness.  

That is the funny side of life, yet still we can choose. Any one can choose to be beautiful. 

You are beautiful when you choose to be.

Why is ugliness unbearable? Because you don't like them.

Do you think Picasso is really beautiful ?

Leechard says:

Forgive me for asking in such a rude way. Because it is really many people who do not think Picasso is beautiful yet they selfdom deny it. 

Many were frightened by the very high selling price or the very high prestige he has got and never dare to declare that he is ugly. 

It is not only the problem of a single painter but also the total problem of our time. The Ugly had dominated modern culture. 

We can see ugliness from the following different fields: Music, Painting, Novel, Drama, and Dance.

It is very difficult to find beauty in those areas. 

And those are leading areas. All other areas, from every day dress to human behavior are affected if not misled.

Yes Picasso is ugly. And many others are ugly also. We cannot hide into the "nostalgic old songs" or "classics" to stay away from the frightening ugly domination. 

We must use our action to declare that ugliness is not welcomed in our world. We refuse to buy to see to enjoy or to accompany others to stay in front of the ugly and waste time and money to say ok for them. 

Ugliness came from greediness. 

Greediness is the worst form of materialism.

And that is the major threat in our modern world. 

When people lack the courage to standup against  ugliness, they choose to be with them.

It is not talent they are lacking. Talent is a simple matter. Talent is courage. Whenever you have courage you have talent. 

So be brave. Stand up. We need you.  

Lets move the planet a bid. Lets bring back beauty, to ourselves and to our children.

What is the most important not important matter?

Leechard says:


It is so important that if it is not well taken care of, total defeat, failure and even destruction will follow. Yet it is not important. People will not give a dime for it. It is worthless.

What is that?

It is the sense of beauty. 

People like ugly things. 

And it is a major trend of the Western culture.

At first it seemed to be a trend of anti-reason only. Music had suddenly lost all their beauty. It was firecracker, not feeling.  And Drama was puzzle. Novel was not understandable. Painting was distorted lines and color.  Yet people like them. A Picasso painting was sold recently for an extremely high price. 

And the most important event was an English marriage. The Prince married a most beautiful Princess on earth. Yet he deserted her. He had other taste for a different woman. 

Is it only a matter of "taste" only?  People's taste had changed. They like ugly things. 

Not many people will bravely say a Picasso painting is ugly as the selling price is frightening. But the world could never deny Princess Diana was a beauty. Yet the Prince did not like her. 

It is important. It is a major trend of the whole world. It is very sad not many people bother. 

Beauty is not isolated human feeling. It is same as truth and goodness. When people turned away from the brighter side of life, every thing will become dangerous. People will never feel safe again. If you had lost your sense of beauty, you will lose your sense of safety.  

Why? 

May be it is materialism. May be it is just stupid. May be it is an external way of seeing things. 

The trend is real and powerful. It cannot be denied. If there is any hope of the modern Western culture, we can only hope for the come back of Beauty. 

Come back, Diana.

Can the US defeat the NK single-handedly?

Leechard says:


You need to have friends.

You need to be honest and you need to be trusted. 

You need to behave like a wise gentleman, not a street gangster. 

Mr. Donald Trump had said he would do it alone to handle the case of North Korea.

It is true that he can. 

The only doubt is whether he can do it perfectly not letting any one of the nuclear devices exploded. It means a total failure if it is not perfect. 

It is the truth of life also. If you are not pure, you are failed. You should choose to live in the air or in the water. Amphibians are simply not human beings.

In that case, it needs a perfect plan, plus the support of friends.

And how can you have friends when you keep striking them in the back?

The Kurds case, the South China Sea case, the Taiwan case, and the Hong Kong case, were all the same. 

If you are a friend of Dalai Lama then you are not a friend of China. If you are supporting the Kurds, then you will not be able to defeat the IS.

No one is a friend if he is not to be trusted. 

The question is can the US defeat the NK single-handedly?

The answer is no.

(It needs not a Watergate to bring him down; the North Koreans will do the job.)

What if your washing machine is broken?

Leechard says:


You can either wash them by hand or take it to the laundry. 

But you can also think. Try to design something simple to wash your clothes. 

And suddenly you don't wish to have the washing machine fixed quickly. The washing machine people need 12 days to transport the machine back to the factory and another 8 days to fix it. In between I need to call them more then five times, each time I need to wait by the phone for more then 20 minutes as their phone was always busy. What? Am I living in Africa?  I knew the other brand need only 3 days to finish the job. Washing machine is a big market here. Every household just cannot do without them. 

And this is another example of bad investment. Why not put some more effort to keep your market? Or else, I will buy the other brand next time. 

However, I treasure these 20 days. I just could not stop thinking every day. I kept thinking to myself, there must be some kind of device like a piece of two feet long broomstick. Put it in the bathtub, the clothes in the tub will be cleaned in ten minutes. 

And remember, washing machine is a big business. You need to invest something and win the whole market. 

And will there be a waterless washing machine in the very near future? You will occupy all the market in the planet immediately only if you can invest enough time and patience to study and produce it. 

Meanwhile, my temporary washing machine is my feet. I put all my clothes in the tub and jump on it. I jumped only twenty to thirty times and then start rinsing. May be I can put them in a large bag, and use a motor to hang it up high and drop it down fast? Only I need to use a small computer to control the speed and length of time. I almost succeeded my invention. But they called me suddenly to send back the machine. What bad luck.  

By midnight when I was sleeping, suddenly something occurred to me. What if the water splashed the whole bathroom? Do I need to fix a splashguard? I have no sleep that night. And I was happy with a sleepless night. What good luck I have.

What is investment?

Leechard says:


I had promised to talk about this topic, however, I felt suddenly very much depressed as I heard the news that the US was supporting the Kurds to fight IS. The US will give lots of weapons to the Kurds, and they said they would have them back after the operation. Any one with a little brain will know that is impossible. They had just changed the total situation into a Kurdish nightmare for all. So I thought it is totally meaningless to talk about investment at this moment. It is only a funny joke to remember. 

Here we have a much more important topic:  Is the politics in the US a sole leadership of Trump himself or, it is a trajectory of the US culture and cannot be changed by any one politicians? As the BBC Defense and diplomatic correspondent Mr. Jonathan Marcus had said: "it is hard to see a substantial difference between the new president's approach and that of his predecessor Barack Obama. Rather, the most significant shift may be that Mr. Trump is applying the Obama recipe with more punch, more resources and greater flexibility." (Mar 27, 2017)


The meaning of this is very clear: Democratic elections cannot change the path of a nation. They are still doing the same old things. They are walking on the same old path. 

And it leads to another doubt, is the US really want to defeat the so-called IS? Or just to take a chance to defeat (or destroy) Syria and take more hard interest from the region?  

And they must have been learning the lesson from so many wars before. Arms given cannot be returned. Only that they will build another opposition force more dangerous than the IS. And now the US politicians are saying they will have the weapons back in due course. What a joke and what a lie. And what a fool. 

What is investment? 

Investment is to make use of the modern technology to do something. It is the basic behavior of human progress. By using the modern technology, you need resources. It is very common to have no resources. Resources are occupied completely. It is not easy to utilize them. However, the most important resource is yourself. It is all in your mind. You can always invest yourself into something. 

There are so many stupid investments nowadays. To invest in the Kurds is definitely wrong.

Has the modern technology been exhausted?

Leechard says:

Has technology been fully utilized? Or to put it in a more easy way: When will the modern technology be used up completely?

Technology is like a knife in our kitchen. If we have a better tool, the knife could go to the museum. You need not to use an old knife to do anything. If you need to cut an apple, you have other better tool. The traditional knife will be forgotten completely. 

Will there be a time when the modern technology had become traditional and totally forgotten?

The knife is very likely non-replaceable. The same is a pencil, or anything helps you to write. These simple things will be our companions until the end of time. 

But here we need to use the concept. We need to think, if there is one day that we have exhausted the modern technology, what next? 

We are using modern technology to make progress. 

And it is easy. 

What you need is investment. If you have put enough money into something, you are very likely to get what you want. Because there are lots of technology in the market and all of them are for sale. You can dig a hole to make underground highway or fly to the moon. All could be done with investment, plus a little effort. 

Modern technology is not exhausted at this moment. Anyone with bravery can use them, or create new technology within the modern science paradigm. If you dare to invest, you will harvest something. 

I presume, modern technology is in level one now. 

In due course it can be raised up to level two, and then level three. 

What is level one? 

1. Level one is external. All efforts in the modern technology are straightforward. It does not need to go in the minds of something. It never studies the inner side of things. If one day we can go into the inner side, we will be in level two. 

The method of Chinese medicine could be level two. But the progress is far too slow and not enough. It is like some left over knowledge by ancient wisdom. The modern man never really understands them. So we are still in level one. May be one day we can utilize the qi, and use it to replace electricity, by then we can say we are in level two. Now we are not. 

2. Level one is linear and numerical. If one day we need not to use rulers and numbers in mathematics, we are not in level one any more.  From the design of nature we can see, the science of nature is not linear and not numerical. There is no straight line in nature. And the concept of number is human concept. If there is any mathematics in nature, it needs not to use numbers. An elephant needs not count its steps. A swallow needs not calculate its distance. They are not linear and not numerical. 

By going into internal, we will be level two. 

By going into non-linear and non-numeric, we will be level three. Will there be a stage of non-language? I do not know.

We were discussing very conceptual things. Realistic people will stay away from us.

Now we have a more interesting topic:

How do we employ or exploit modern technology? What if I have no money to invest?   

You will find it useful in tomorrow's topic:

What is investment?

Can scientists make a better mother bomb?

                   Leechard says:


It is regrettable that the term mother bomb had entered the minds of modern culture. It cannot be deleted. 

The only way is to create some good mother bombs to replace the bad memory. 

At least two kinds of mother bombs are urgently needed by us human race.

1. A rain pusher mother bomb  

If scientists can create a vacuum in the high atmosphere, it might be able to push the rain clouds into another direction. And that could help to create a better weather for many places. For example, the dry places in Africa and Middle East can have more rain. Is it possible? May be. 

2. A fire distinguisher mother bomb 

Bush fires were so big recently that many of them can be shown in the map. The fire area is often too big for ordinary method to handle. 

Lets imagine a huge pressurized mother bomb. It is all drinking beer and carbon dioxide inside. It is so much pressurized that it contains as mush as a swimming pool of beer. When the beer mother bomb explodes in the bush fire, a rain of beer plus lots of carbon dioxide will fall and the fire is distinguished. 

Next week is mother's day. Lets hope some better mother bombs will be soon created. And it is very urgent too to design some hand grenade of beer mother's baby bombs. Fire fighters can put some in their pockets. Whenever the way out is blocked by fire, they can use them to open a path. It will save many lives.    

It is wonderful to have them created.

Why evils cannot be hated?

Leechard says:
Because hatred is a contagium and evils are contagious. If someone hates a certain evil, he will be infected with the evil spirit and become an evil. The one who hates evil will be another evil.

The nature of hatred is very useful to political powers. They often employ hatred to recruit member. Once the target of hatred is setup, all the blames will be on that target. They will demonize the target with the help of the media. When the fire of hatred is burning high, people in a heated secret group will give up using their senses. Their thinking function will stop. They will only listen to their leader. Many of them are willing to give up life to sacrifice without a second thought.

Terrorists used this method. The West also used it. In the so-called Arab Spring, governments collapsed one by one. All were results of hatred. Secret messages spread like fire and crowds organized. Few governments could stand against the rebellious hatred organizations. 
 
The problem is they do not think. With the help of foreign powers, they had taken over the ruling power, but do not know how to use it. Old governments replaced by the new one, poverty and difficulties remain unchanged.

  Leechard says:

'Love' is a word we often use. It is almost everywhere. It is something one cannot argue, cannot oppose, and cannot deny. 

But people always choose hate instead of love. 

They blame each other. 

They complain every thing. 

To hate is not only an individual behavior, but also a national or international behavior. 

Nations hate nations. To love each other is only limited in personal life. There is no love in international relationships. 

It's easier to hate than to love. 

You don't have to learn how to hate. It is inner human weakness. But to love is so difficult that learning is needed. There are so many books teaching people how to love. But very few books have taught you how not to hate. 

Thou shall not hate. It is important.

What is hatred proliferation ?


                         *Leechard*


Hatred Proliferation is the most important issue. Its far more important then the nuclear proliferation issue. If hatred remains the main thoughts in modern world, nuclear proliferation is never able to prevent. 

Hatred is a common tool used by all sides of the political powers. To create hatred is easy. And it is cheap to create it. To spread a word, to spread a hatred idea, is effective and fast. 

That is the most vulnerable side of the human nature. 

Whenever you see people shouting some kinds of slogans in the streets, you will easily spot hatred in their eyes. 

And hatred needed a target. And a target needed to be demonized. Problems could be easily blamed on the demonized target. They are not doing something to solve problems. They solve problems by blaming. 

Do not blame and do not demonize any one. 

But think and study. 

By deeply probing into the questions the truth could be found and problems solved.

To raise a fist and shout down with someone is easy. But it is also stupid. Because people seldom think and try to find out solutions. 

Some stupid people are willing to waste their life to throw a bomb. They are too busy to hate than to think. Those are terrorists. But the other side is more or less the same. They are reluctant to think why there are so many terrorists. 

It's easy to demonize anyone you don't like, as it is easy to be stupid. But it is never easy to work hard and think hard to find out the truth.

Who is the best mediator

*Leechard


Pope Francis has said the present situation in Korea needed international mediation to help. He had given a strong hint that Norway would be a mediator. 

But the conflict here is real conflict. It is not due to misunderstanding or different political ideas.  

It is very likely not negotiable.

And if the conflict is not settled today, it will develop to a much larger scale in the future. 

North Korea is determined not to give up nuclear weapons, unless they are forced to do so. 

The question is how much force is needed to do it perfectly, not letting any one of the nuclear bombs to explode. 

Libya case is an unforgettable lesson for all the nuclear countries. 

In 2003, the Libyan strongman Muammar al-Qaddafi had believed the West. He was willing to exchange his nuclear weapons for a generous economic benefit. However, revolution happened in 2011. He was not able to suppress the rebels. He died a tragic death. Someone used a knife to pierce into his anus when he was boarding a plane, perhaps he was handcuffed. The scene was filmed and seen by the whole world. It was all because he had given up his nuclear weapons. 

No one is willing to trade in nuclear weapon from then on. May be Iran is the only exception. And no one will know, when will the Iranians build their nuclear reactor again. 

Mediation is not a good method for this. 

And we can see the future trend here. More and more similar cases will happen, again and again. Until one day, a real nuclear war will cover the whole planet. 

We had mentioned a theory of hard and soft interest. Hard interest is land and resources, so there were always wars to fight for them.  Soft interest is creative innovations. It needs not fighting to earn money from it. 

On top of the soft interest, is a reasonable modern culture.    

We humans need to work for soft interest and a reasonable and useful culture.

What can we do in this deadly moment ?

*Leechard

Only a few  have noticed that the moment right now is deadly. If nuclear wars burst out in Asia, all will face a tremendous change. Many will die, and more will have to face a difficult social and environment pressure. 

Human is a very curious animal. Human can hardly change anything without a big pressure presents. All the books and theories and ideas are useless in peaceful moment. Until one day the explosion happens, then people will start to think, and only by that time, people will  read. 
 
What can we do in this deadly moment?

Nothing.

What is the most important line Trump has said today (2017.4.27)?

*Leechard

According to BBC :

In a wide-ranging interview inside the Oval Office, Mr. Trump praised China's President Xi Jinping for his handling of North Korea, calling him "A very good man" who loved his country. 

He said Mr. Xi "certainly doesn't want to see turmoil and death."

"He is a very good man and I got to know him very well, " he said.

"He loves China and he loves the people of China. I know he would like to be able to do something, perhaps it's possible that he can't." 

The most important line is the last line. Trump had said, "it's possible that he can't."

President Xi wants to accomplish something. But it's possible that he can't. It's the idea of Mr. Trump. And it is the leaking of his thoughts; one can always enter from here to reach his inner setup. 

We hope Mr. Trump could tell us why. Why did he think that is impossible.

What is wrong with a mixed signal?

                             *Leechard

Only external people use signals to judge, and guide their action.

If you see a mixed signal on the street, both the green and red lights were on. You can judge them by the actual traffic situation. 

In cases of politics and foreign affairs, signal could only be a not important reference. 

The important things are always internal. 

For example, North Korea is external. It's the external reflection of China. If you wish to study the Korean Situation, you ought to see into the internal affairs. Before you can see deeply into the internal conflicts in China, any study about North Korea is in vain. 

Before an external war, there is always an internal war pending.

Will the US use nuclear against North Korea ?

                           *Leechard

It is very unlikely for the US to use nuclear bomb against North Korea, even if it was bombed with some nuclear device by the North Korea.

Point One:

Is it possible for North Koreans use nuclear weapon against the US?

There is always a possibility. To deny it is not wise. If they are not using it today, they will use it tomorrow, or next year. So to snub the cigarette end is priority. 

Point Two:

Will the US retaliate with nuclear weapon?

May be not this time. The enemies may throw one or two nuclear weapons, but it will not be like gunfire exchange. The US needs to think of the next step. If they can eliminate the enemy leaders they will do it. If the leaders are not located, then they will use other means to locate him. They will not burn the whole country into radioactive ashes but not finding their leader.

Point Three:

Are ground forces needed? 

The best choice is to use the Chinese army as ground force. North Korea is not like Middle East. There is no rebel army. And the South Korean is reluctant to fight, or simply too weak in their will to fight. There will be an endless nightmare if the South Korean were fighting against the North. They will keep losing and retreating, same as the South Vietnam situation. 

To bring in the Chinese needed wisdom. The US has had so many talented people in the Government; they knew how to do it.

What is the most difficult part in the Korea Situation ?

                             *Leechard


It is a burning cigarette end near the gas station. Any one nearby would like to snub it off before it ignites something.

Here come two guys who want to handle it. 

One said snub it off.

The other said don't. 

China was giving a mixed signal. It seemed doing two things. It protected the North  while kicked the South.   

And it tells the US to stop.

What if the US takes any action? 

It is almost sure China will not action. 

China will only use rhetoric to handle the case, unless it was also bombed by the North Korea. 

Its signal was clear.

Why dont China let the US beat North Korea ?

                       *Leechard

What the Chinese have been doing is very different from their traditional wisdom. 

The traditional way is using one stone to kill two birds. 

If China let the US beat North Korea, both of them will get hurt. And China could come amid the turmoil and have a good harvest. 

But China had chosen not to do that. 

Why?

If Trump could one day understood all this, he will be great.

What is wrong to underestimate something ?

                       *Leechard


Another ancient Chinese wisdom:  You should never underestimate the very young though you can always bully the very old.

And we can change that:  You should never underestimate science and technology though you can always neglect literature and history. 

This is a rather subtle subject. As for me, I will never neglect literature and history, as these are the real causes of politics. 

However, science and technology can be very dangerous. Do not underestimate them. 

Is it possible to hide a nuclear device somewhere in New York or Boston or Washington? The North Koreans would detonate them whenever they feel like to do so?

Or hide some war chemical devices and ignite them? 

The scientists in US should have done their homework long ago. And their opinions are very unlikely.   

But what if it was underestimated? 

The Koreans had links to Malaysia long ago. And Malaysia is a place to link up US.  They must have used that connection to send things and people into the US. Is it possible? 

All of the above sound absurd. But is it possible that one day, the absurd will become reality?  

And the rest is the North Korean Army. It was said that they have reached 1 million. And this figure is not to be neglected. Is there an absolute way to stop them entering South Korea? Have the Americans produced enough robots to combat them?  

Xi and Trump must have known all of the above. They must have discussed them.

Why can't you keep a tiger at home?

                             *Leechard

Tiger cannot be raised at home like pets. It's the ancient wisdom of China. If you keep a tiger at home, the tiger will be a disaster to you. 

Now, North Korea seems to be a pet tiger for China. No one understands why. As time goes by, disaster is bound to happen. But the Chinese seems not aware of it. They had determined to keep the tiger. 

There must be a reason behind, if you believe the Chinese is smart and believe that they must have other considerations. Or else they are foolish.

What could be that very reason? 

Is the American threat real? 

Do the Chinese really afraid to have America as a neighbor?

I do not think it is a good reason to keep a pet tiger.

How did a fairy tale of Princess Diana turn ugly?

                          *Leechard


Fairy Tales are of utmost importance in human life. They give us wisdom and beauty and hope. 

At a certain day in July 1981, I happened to be in London and witnessed the grand marriage of the Prince and the Princess. I was very excited by that time. 

And time is somewhat similar to space. 

Distance makes differences. The longer the time, the farther the space, keep you away from the gossip, and you are a step nearer to the true facts.

I was in Hong Kong several decades after the marriage. I heard little about the gossips. May be I had avoided them. All that happened in my mind was a good fairy tale .The Prince and the Princess finally got married and they were living happily ever after.

And fairy tales are very important. They were real hopes.  

If by one day, even the fairy tales cannot exist anymore, you wonder, what had actually happened in our ugly life. 

By the year 1997, the Princess was dead.

And the fairy tale was broken. It cannot exit in the hearts of modern people. 
Truth was disappeared.

All sorts of grief and all sorts of lies and misconceptions and everything are coming to cover from every angle.  

So the fairy tale is dead. 

And this is the modern world. It is just like that.  All are realities and no fairy tales.

Can I do away sad feelings in a song?

  *Leechard


Some times I feel sad. I can never shake off my sad feelings. I started to write songs a couple of years ago. But it only brought in more sad feelings. As I am a poor songwriter and I cannot afford to hire good singers to sing the songs. 

Here is one of my song



Sad Sad Maria

(1)
Whatever I saw in the dark evening
It must be something coming inside my heart
Whenever I try to see
Darkness covers all
I couldn't see any light

You are the only power in my mind
Without you I couldn't go anywhere

Oh my dear Maria
There must be some more light

Light
So bright

Run over countries countries somewhere somewhere
It could be too long to wait

There must be some more light

What is the nature of a nuclear crisis?

                          *Leechard


It happens in the gaps of powers.

If there are no gaps, then there will be no crisis. 

The world is composed by powers. The major powers to day are that of the US, Russia, and China.

These powers are like huge plates of earth. They are crushing each other every day.

And that produces gaps. 

And the gaps let the unwanted items grow, like the extreme religion and now, the nuclear crisis.

Why are they crushing each other? 

Because they have different aims. 

They are not moving in the same direction.

From this understanding, one could find the solution to the nuclear crisis. 

One is to have a similar direction for all the powers. 

Two is to get together to work out a plan.

Three is to take the steps slowly. 

Put the poisonous frog into some warm water. Do not boil it.

Why can't the Chinese make more money in the business of Chinese Medicine?

                             *Leechard


Chinese culture is very much not the same as American culture. Chinese culture had been trapped into a paradigm that the Chinese themselves may not be well aware of. 

I have explained the matter in detail in my Chinese book: "Who will be rich tomorrow". However, book stores are not willing to sell that book, it is not known among the Chinese readers, though the issue is extremely important that the Chinese can get rich quickly if they can adopt themselves into a new paradigm. 

America is a nation of invention. Almost all important items were invented by the Americans. From self-drive cars to mobiles, all the inventions are now commercially salable products. 

China had their own advantage points. They are a nation of right brains. They can see things in a whole picture that the Western scholars can seldom see the same. Medicine is a good example. The Chinese Medicine can treat a patient from an angle that their Western counterparts can never think of. 

However, Chinese medicine is having a very slow progress. They had not been able to fully discover the theory of the Chinese medicine. If they can put in more effort, the Chinese medicine will be salable to the whole world. Because it is effective, and it is cheap. If the American Government can choose Chinese medicine, the Obama care will be a lot easier to manage. 

The Chinese put every thing in the frame of moral to consider. Even today, when they discover the Western method is so important, such as the ability to seek knowledge or the ability to communicate etc., they just write it down as a moral doctrine and make pupils to memorize it. 

They have not been able to discover the inner beauty of the Chinese medicine or the real nature of the Chinese medicine. Why do such and such an acupuncture point can heal such and such a disease? There is no answer always. 

The frame of morality has been the major obstruction. But they don't know it.

Who is a good learner in politics?

Many are just bureaucrats.

 Bureaucrats need not learning. They have a steady path to walk on.  Obama was one. He seemed to have known all. He never needed learning anything new.  

There was one very good learner in history. He was Peter the Great. He had disguise as a workman to work in a European ship company to learn the Western skills. But he was not a really good learner. Because he did not like abstract thoughts. He never liked theories and may be he did not  like reading. If he had read more, Russia will be number one  today. 

Donald Trump is another good learner. It is too early yet to say he is really good or not. But he is surely not a bureaucrat.  He learns and he changes. 

I do hope he is more then a learner. If he had learned something and suited himself into the old path, then he would be a successor to the bureaucrats only. 

I hope he can be an achiever. He can bring the United States and the world into a better place.

Please note that the title of todays article is "Can Bombs kill terrorism". 

And the vital point is "terrorism" not "terrorist". 

If the reader of this article is smart enough, we don't have to write on. The message is already clear.

Every one with some senses should know, bombs can kill terrorist but not terrorism. 

You need to pay a price in order to get every thing done.  

If you only wish to finish the job from the high air, smart people can know quickly:

The job is never done.

Who would take care of cultural matters ?

First is that you must know what is going on. 

For example, terrorism or moneyism is the two most important issues in the world. Most of the politicians use much of their time and money to handle these two issues. 

How to make money and how to keep yourself safe? 

John is a toilet cleaner. He works hard. He enjoys his job. He cleans and cleans and cleans. But the toilet is never clean. 

Good politicians are the same. They try to make the country rich, and they try to keep the country safe. He works and works and works. Until one day he retires, and he found he had done nothing. 

He had never been aware of the culture matters. 

He had never known that culture is such a big thing that it can mold the nations, or, keep the toilets uncleanable. 

Of all the good politicians, Helmut Schmidt is one of them. He was a German statesman. He died at 2015.

What should be done to eliminate hatred?


Terrorism is the fruit of hatred. People love that fruit. When people cannot understand why things happened in a manner they do not like, they choose hate. 

Many politicians knew deeply the usage of hate. People will listen to blaming and condemning more then reasoning. You raise a fist and people follow.

Hatred doesn't come from nowhere. There must be some reason for hatred.  

You have to settle the disputes first.

That is why there must be a 1:10 arrangement. Each dollar spent on the military, 10 times of other effort should be done.

A peaceful world would make every one happy. 

And now the next question is:  Where do we have the money? 

Is there a way to make money first? 

Yes there is.

How much money should be used on the Middle East?

Each of the Tomahawk missile costs about 1 million. The total operation of the bombing at the Syria target would cost more than 59 million dollars. 

But the point is the purpose. What is the purpose of the military action?

Should it be to the final defeat of the so-called IS?

And there might be other considerations. What if IS is defeated?  Will there be new form of terrorists? 

Will there be other organizations arose and replaced the defeated IS?

The purpose of the action in Middle East should be two-dimensional:  one is to eliminate hatred; other is to settle disputes in different paradigms.

Each dollar used on battlefield, should be backup 10 times in other field, such as medicine, education, economy, and even entertainment. That is a very   basic global cost. 

The ultimate goal should not be defeating terrorists only. It should be eliminating hatred. 

Can the Americans defeat IS? Maybe. Will there be other forms of terrorist after the IS?

The answer is positive.  

How much money should be used on the Middle East?  The answer is 1 to 10. For each dollar used on the military, 10 times should be on other field.

Are the Russians 'complicit' or 'incompetent' ?

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on a CBS program Face the Nation, Russia was either complicit or incompetent to prevent the Syrian Government use chemical weapons on a rebel-held town in Syria.  

Were the Russians incompetent to control the Syrian Government? Or they were part of the plot to use chemical weapons? 

Mr. Tillerson said, or they got outwitted. That meant he did not believe the Russian was the one to choose chemical weapons. He thought the Russians were just incompetent. 

But it might also be a problem of different paradigms. 

The Russians were not in the same mindset with the Americans.

If they are in the same mindset, the problem must have been solved already.

And there will not be problems of the IS either. 

Different mindset brought in the different approach. Why did the Syrian Government choose to use the deadly gas? Do they have other options? 

Many terrorists prefer to die to throw out a bomb. And the Syrians prefer to use gas. It is completely different thoughts and paradigms. If the Russians and Americans do wish to solve the problem in the Middle East, they have to think from the inner side of the whole problem. They were not tough enough to handle the issues. If they were tough enough, they will dig deeper into it.

Are wars controllable? People always doubt it.

Only the best war genius knows how to control a war. They knew it deeply that if something happens and the war has become uncontrollable, there will be the time of final defeat, or eternal ruin.

The secret is in the mind. 

Or how the average people judge you.

why should China and America be friendly?


It is because the issue they are fighting each other is gone. It had become not important.

The issue is the hard interests.

The so-called hard interests are land, resources, markets, etc. 

But this is a time of softness.

Soft interest is far more important. 

Almost all important inventions were by America. From early Thomas Edison electricity to the new electric car, it seems that the newly invented American products will occupy the markets automatically. It needs no promotion and political interference. It would keep growing. 

It is a time of Softness. It is not a time of Hardness. 

It makes the core of the US-China friendship.

It is because that hard interest is not so important now.

Some Eastern religious people say, you cannot change the world just like you cannot change the TV channel. 

It sounds true and it brings resentment. However, it is wrong. 

Yes we can change the world. Just switch the mindset into 'we'. If we cannot change the world, we will be destroyed. Like if we cannot defeat terrorism, terrorism will destroy us, or make every one their slave.

We can change the world, and we must. 

The first change is the mindset. Please change the word "I" into "We".

What if you cannot change the world ?

This is one major difference between the East and the West.

Some Eastern religious people said, if you cannot change the world, you better learn to live with it. 

It is the kind of philosophy that keeps people away from going onward.

No one can change the world in a short time. However, one can always study. You are changing the world bit by bit if you have started to think.

what is culture complex?

A complex is NOT when every body is thinking the same. I said yesterday that a complex is when every one shares the same thought, but it needs more elaboration.

There might be individual thoughts in every culture. Some agree and some disagree. A complex is when a major issue becomes the only concern, than there will be no other issue. 

Moral in China is an example.

When the issue of moral arises, all other issue was forgotten. Moral had become the dominant issue. Every other issue served the main issue, though the people living under such dominant thought might choose to be immoral as the opposite of thought was bound to happen simultaneously. 

However, no matter one is moral or not moral, there will be the only horizontal plain for him to rest his mind. He is supposed to think only in the plain. He may choose to be different, but it will be painful and lonely. He can hardly change anything, though sometimes he is the only hope.

What is wrong with culture complex?

There are different culture complexes. 

A complex is when every body is thinking the same. 

If every one thinks commerce is the only means to save Europe, there will not be other means. 

The same is desire in India, moral in China. 

Moral, Desire and Commerce are not wrong. But if all thoughts are trapped inside, there will be big problem.

What is so special about American Complex ?

American Complex is very special. As other complexes would bring in failure, American Complex keeps bringing in success.

What is culture complex?

People had little doubt about their culture. Almost every culture considers their culture sacred. It may not be true. Almost every culture had their own inner culture complex. 

We had mentioned the Indian Complex, Chinese Complex, European Complex, and a complex about the unknown, which needs more study. This complex might be the most harmful one.

We shall name this complex American Complex.

It sees every thing from the external side.

It forgets about intuition.

It denies the unknown.

Why do they put a pointer dog on the pointed roof ?






We were new comers to this little town. It was somewhere between New Zealand and Australia. I had never known weathers could be so nice. I had never enjoyed such good sunshine and fresh air. 

Our roof was just like any other roofs. It was a pointed roof, with a pointer dog guarding on it. 

I had never known why people did this. We just followed. Every family put a pointer dog up there. 

I tried to ask neighbors. They had no idea either. They would tell me a line from Confucius, which I could never manage to remember. As Confucius had said so, so there was nothing important to bother with. Every family kept a pointer dog up the pointed roofs. It was as normal as usual.

And it was another very common morning. I woke up early. I saw from the house wall windows, some students had already arrived. They were students of my wife. She was a Ballet teacher. The students and their helpers were all sitting quietly outside. They were waiting for the dance class to begin.

It was by this time, I observed my pointer dog for the first time. 

He seemed to be very sad. 'What?' I thought to myself, 'do dogs have feelings too?'   

I looked at him again. He seemed painful. Because I saw him bending his spine, and could hardly stand straight. 

There was dirty dark blood on his lower waist.

I hurried to move the dog down from the pointed roof. I thought, 'Oh, how happy should the dog be?'

When he was on the ground, I found that there was no dog leash. And he was so happy, and healthy, that he started to run. Now there was nothing wrong with his spine. 

I managed to have a large belt trying to harness the dog. But it was so large, that it could not fit in the neck of the dog. 

The harness was of no use indeed. 

He had started running. And me too. 

We were running.

( The End )
