Xi‘s China To Be The First Civilization In The Galaxy To Dispense Confidence By Decree
By Thorsten J. Pattberg
Why The Renewed Urgency?
Before we explain Mr. Xi Jinping’s much underreported but now revived ‘Confidence Doctrine’, a word about this week’s anti-lockdown demonstrations in China:

East Asians declared Corona a state religion. They have a genetic streak for submission and agreeableness. Much like females in the West. They are also lighter than Western females. Then, there is an environmental factor, for East-Asians are trained to be less aggressive, confrontational, and meek in character. There is no threat to the West coming from China. If you check your sources, you will see that all the alleged threats coming from China were in fact written by Western agitators.

We Western people speak for the Asians. It is our duty. Read about the first missions to China. Read George Hegel or Edward Said. Read Immanuel Kant on the End of History, or Bertrand Russell on the Problem of China. It is just a fact that Asians cannot create. God said: Not you, sorry! God then chose the Iews, then said Christians… also good. There are no Chinese in the Bible. Read the American Constitution. It says America, not China.
In Japan, everyone is walking around with their C-membership retard badges. In Taiwan… well… these people have an authoritarian streak and are the descendants of traitors, war criminals, and the triads, so they love cult and fascist masquerading. All this is not reported in the West, because Taiwan and Japan are useful anal toys.

China central of course gets all the hate. Did you see the German President praising the brave demonstrators? Well, he called demonstrators in Germany Nazi-scum and terrorists and destroyed their livelihood. Or did you see the Canadian Premier warning the Chinese government against taking actions against peaceful demonstrators? Well, he prosecuted EVERYONE in Canada for peacefully protesting his tyranny. British unelected Prime Minister, a brown person from India or Pakistan, I forgot, said China was doing genocide. This, while London is genociding white Englishmen and killing their culture.

China, like Russia, has no agency in the world any more. It became… autistic? It wants to be left alone from the Western bullies. Had Beijing not declared its Zero-Covid policy and now had 6 million Covid-deaths to mourn (the USA has 1.2 million deaths), the Western hate press would have called Mr. Xi the bloodiest despot since Mr. Mao.
While ugly anti-Western nations cocoon themselves in, hoping enslavement will pass, hoping to transform into new creatures of beauty, Western powers are making all the decisions for them about air, space, water, food, energy, rights, education… that will affect all beings on this planet. So, while the West starts wars in Ukraine and Taiwan, Western planners already make decisions about the cutting up of Russian and China.
No Conquest, No Confidence?
If the Asians do not unite and reign into the Western psychopaths who currently torture the world with bio-weapons and mind-control, above all the puppet regimes in London, Berlin, and Washington, then your funny cocoons will be trampled on and squashed.
Anyway, now to the main thread. Largely ignored by the Western media because it didn’t involve racism, violence, and boobs, China mandated the Chinese to build a giant cocoon of confidence, crawl inside and reform itself as a strong terracotta pot plant army that no criticism can defeat.
Confidence is just a new old discourse that every five years or so concerns Chinese President Xi Jinping and the Communist Party of China (CPC). And just as anticipated, the theme emerged again, in this fall of 2022 in fact, when the 20th National Party Congress revived the discourse about “the ebbs and tides” of what global historians describe as the “Cultural Confidence” of Great nations.
What’s a “Great nation”? Most people don’t care about Great nations because they do not live in one and never belonged to any. They have no idea what it means or what advantages it can give to their lives. For example, the people in the Philippines, also an ex-US-colony, could all just die and the world would probably be better off [because of over-population, food scarcity, and pollution, etc.]. Or, they could apply for a job at MacDonald’s, buy an iPhone with the Google app, watch Elon Musk videos on Youtube, learn American English, get an US college degree, and work for a Western multinational. That is their only way to become useful and participate in World History.
China is obviously more ambitious. It still has…well… City Wok fast food… I guess, Xiaomi phones, Youku, a powerful Mandarin script with 40,000 letters, and excellent schools. It also has plenty of global companies. So, in a way, China hopes to keep its state economy and not be privatized by Western powers like it was in the 17th Century, and then again in the 19th Century, and again in the 20th Century, and is now threatened with regime change again… and it isn’t even a quarter into the 21st Century.
Prove It That You Met Your Maker!
Earlier this year, in May 2022, during the 39th group study session of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, the government allocated scholarly efforts to the tracing of the origins of the Chinese civilization. The underlying idea is to desperately show the world and prove to the Chinese that they are in fact a pre-Biblical super civilization that was just forgotten to be mentioned in the Bible and during Science.

Catalysts for the Cultural movement were, among other research findings: the discovery of hundreds of archaeological excavation sites, the human genome project on the origins of the Chinese civilization, and the catalogization of Ancient relics, for example pottery and stone tools from the Zhou Dynasty (770 BC) unearthed in China‘s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.
There were no mummies or that kind of reminiscences, just pots and stones. But mass hypnosis shall suffice if you throw in fancy DNA terminology, also a Western invention, that the Chinese, against all negative Western stereotyping, did indeed create and were creators.
The Cultural Confidence discourse [Wenhua Zixin] is a continuation of the ‘Confidence Doctrine’ [Zixin Lun] formulated during the 18th Party Congress in November 2012. President Xi Jinping marked the doctrine of “Confidence in Chinese Culture” as the natural continuation of the doctrines of “Chinese Dream” and the “Rejuvenation of China.”
Now you could argue, what’s left of the “Chinese Dream” when the world is told to hate China, but that is beside the point. What’s there to rejuvenate? Feudalism? The Manchu queue? Pillow girls?
Another tide of Cultural Confidence came in in 2017, during the 19th Party Congress. The doctrine was to expand into “globally recognizable cultural images of China,” “Chinese language teaching through the Confucius Institutes,” the “Key Concepts of Chinese Thought and Culture” program, and “rapid economic and technological development” as the Four Characteristics of Confidence to build, quote: “a multidimensional China for the world.”
Again, not much enthusiasm left from that period either. The West has rejected the Confucius Institutes. Chinese names and concepts are still banned in Europe. Telecom giant Huawei, Social media TikTok, e-commerce Alibaba, super-application WeChat, shipping firm Cosco, drone supplier DJI,… Chinese banks, electric cars, airplanes, newspapers… all blocked.
The Ebbs and Flows of Confidence
China during the last two centuries has experienced both extreme humiliations and extreme successes. Humiliations at the hands of Western Imperialist powers and Japan, which led to chauvinism—a sense of moral superiority even after physical defeat. And Successes under the Leadership of the CPC when China overtook all those Western Imperialist powers and Japan, and became the biggest trading nation in the world, which led to an inferiority complex—a sense of doubt and feeling like an impostor.
The range of Chinese emotions between callousness and grandstanding, between inferiority and hubris, has been matter of Western ‘China Studies’ since its conception as an academic discipline in the 18th Century. Generally speaking, Western missionaries were Western spies who reported back to Rome, Paris, and London that China was backward and needed Christianity and a strong Western Leadership. Did you know that the most famous book that was ever written on China is Mr. Arthur Smith’s Chinese Characteristics? Well, it is pretty much like the Protocol of the Elders of Zion, just from the dip shit end of world conspiracy.
What followed was the coordinated invasion of China and the semi-colonization of several parts and ports, notably Shanghai by the French, Macau by the Portuguese, Formosa by the Japanese, Tsingtau by the Germans, the Canton by the British and so on and so forth. I spare you the details of “a hundred years of humiliation,” as every Asian learns about it. However, few people in the West are taught this history.
Naturally, a strong introspection of the Chinese psyche took place since the fall of the last Chinese Dynasty, the Qing, in 1911. Even in defeat, Chinese sages imagined a spiritual victory. Wrote the poet Gu Hongming: “It is a well-known fact that the liking – you may call it the taste for the Chinese – grows upon the foreigner the longer he lives in this country.” That was in 1922.
In other words, even when their armies were clearly defeated and their nation conquered, their poets turned “a disastrous beating” into some form of spiritual victory and moral triumph. Almost like the biblical “Turning the other cheek…”
An East-West dichotomy reemerged. The ebb must follow the tide, the unjust brings forth the just, and so on. Said the chairman Mao Zedong: “I believe that the international situation has now reached a new turning point. There are two Winds in the world, the East Wind and the West Wind.” That was in 1957.
Without Confidence, a civilization, a nation, a family and even an individual will succumb to the hostile forces of nature and man, and will fall victim to cruelty and conquest.
It is therefore of essence to our survival, that we must combine forces, serve the people, and be assertive and vigilant against outside invaders.
Evolutionary Sciences seems to support this claim. A recent study in ‘Current Biology’ in July 2022 suggests that the now extinct Native Americans had Chinese DNA traces in their bones.
This was 14,000 years ago in North America. The Europeans wiped out the Native Americans as soon as they “discovered” them in 1492. China lost contact with North America, and could not help. The core Chinese Civilization today traces its origins back “only” 5,000 years. But still, it has survived the Ancient Greeks, the Romans, the Egyptians, lived in peaceful coexistence with the Indians and Japanese, and, for the longest time, regarded itself—erroneously—as Zhong Guo, the Center of Nations.
As a Nation Thinks
Today, China’s Cultural Confidence is again caught in between two extremes. The pro-Western forces say China cannot achieve a multipolar world and must accept total Westernization [or suffer US embargo, containment, and military intervention like Europe, Japan, the Middle East, and Russia]. The pro-China forces say China must revive Confucianism, groom its own economic champions, and become a center of the world again.
IMAGE 6 Confidence and The Xin-Civilization
Governments do well by carefully weighing in and listening to the traditionalists as well as the progressives, but ideally, they should never again become push-overs to foreign dictate.
Did you read how the American President’s favorite propaganda media like New York Times or Wall Street Journal reported on China’s “censorship on information about the Covid demonstrations”? Well, America owns or dictates all global media, owns global big tech, and controls the world wide web commonly known as the Internet. It is Americans who control and censor all of us. And if China objects to the American world dictatorship, it will be called a terrorist, a rogue state, and a censorship regime.
Some commentators have argued that Xi Jinping and the CPC still should not subsidize “writers and artists.” They say things like “Art should be for art’s sake” or “Don’t draw a moon, build a spaceship.” In other words, the government in Beijing is believed to focus too much on technology and infrastructure, hard power, not on arts and culture and the mighty word, soft power. To which we reply that all nations in the world want to improve their material circumstances, yet it is only those who seem to stride effortlessly and possess a magnificent Culture who succeed.
As a Nation thinks, so it becomes.

The Chinese way of committing a genocide is great. It makes the targeted population grow. There are more Uighurs after their genocide by the Chinese than before. I admit that I feel some fondness for that kind of genocide.
This young American woman travels throughout the countryside in Tibet, Xinjiang, Guizhou and visits many of the ethnic minorities in tiny villages and towns that no one has ever heard of. And what do you find? That besides younger people learning Mandarin to be able to travel and work around the country, ethnic minorities keep their languages and culture alive and the government has stepped in to develop their communities either for free or at an extremely subsidized rate. A truly bizarre method of genocide. China like Russia could not exist in its current form if there was not a deep respect for differences between its peoples.
Learning Mandarin! Ouch! Is Mandarin not the hardest language in the world to master?
Not if you are a child living in China. Does anyone else think North America indians are extinct? Are Filipinos really better off dead? I don’t understand this author; is he joking? And what does it mean: “If the Asians do not unite and reign into the Western psychopaths”?
If Asians going to be weak as Europeans ,they will end up as they(Europeans)just do. Totally under control of world biggest satan and nobody going to help them – vill be to late ,because big devil were triwing all the time on them with chocogreenback *papers. Now slowly no value, just unrealistic hope that going to be better, but not to avail
A 7,000 years old Chinese civilisation.

“They have a genetic streak for submission and agreeableness. Much like females in the West.”
Which “females in the West” have you been talking to? Most of them would view being called “agreeable” as a sexist slur, and forget about even muttering “submission” around one of them. These 304s be broken inside.
You don’t need to be a genius or geo-political expert to see the truth. The only thing you require is “unbiased” judgement and basic “common sense”. Consider, if China or Russia (USSR) was so bad and it’s dictators so terrible to it’s population, why are these countries still alive today? Legitimate question right. The West has been reporting how these countries are like Hell for decades yet they are still there (alive). Spending just a few minutes watching YT videos of how both countries look today, it is clear the Western media is lying. In fact, compared to the West, both countries are on par or thriving.
Disclaimer for the gullible, there is NO fire or brimstone.
“Xi‘s China the First to Dispense Confidence By Decree”
I think Xi’s China lost, and Schwab’s WEF was first:
“You will own nothing and be happy.” Or else!
Apple phone boycot not happening because the worker are not slaves nor will they be because it is a richmans toy.
The West seems terrified that should China become strong and powerful, China will treat the West in the same way that the West has been treating China and the world in the last couple hundred years.
Is it a justified fear?
In the early 1400s, the Chinese admiral Zheng He sailed around to Africa, South/West/Southeast Asia with massive fleets but he did not establish colonies or conquer anyone. He only sailed around, traded for gifts to bring back to the Emperor and that was all. The Chinese have always looked inwards towards their own civilization which in some cases like the late Qing Dynasty was probably too inward looking and thus unable to develop and fight off the Western imperialists. Now they are still inward looking to themselves but just want to trade with the rest of the world for the resources they need so they can develop. Actually if you look at the territories that the “government” in Taiwan claims, it’s quite a bit larger than the current Mainland China, even including the entirety of Mongolia!
I think this article is such bs – already in the first paragraph I was wondering about this westerner again
this simply isn’t true
” There is no threat to the West coming from China. If you check your sources, you will see that all the alleged threats coming from China were in fact written by Western agitators.”
Thorseten the third has the mentality of Laurence Oliphant times – not that man himself – who was a cool dude – but the people around him – Palmerston and them bunch of brits…Thorsten you’re in German in blood but you’re an englishman in your thinking
I might be able to finish it with a hard copy but with just the screen and your caustic writing – I can’t stomach it.
Thanks for trying
I sincerely believe that you didn’t (or couldn’t) understand Dr Pattberg. Or perhaps it’s your incoherent response that suggests the observation.
Dr Pattberg is a step ahead of most commentators writing on China and Asia today (and their relationship with the West) because his perceptions are grounded on knowledge of history, language and culture —- and linked to the actuality of global politics today. His writings are imho necessary reading for anyone who wishes to understand how and why the western press today in China “news” is more propaganda than fact-based journalism.
Despite his academic credentials, he seems determined to avoid the pedantry of academe and to communicate with his target audience of the concerned and literate. And he does so in a piquant, Swiftian style which is striking and refreshing.
I hope he is in contact with Pepe Escobar as their work is quite complementary.
