BRIEF TALE OF CHINESE UNIFICATION PAST PRESENT FUTURE RETURN OF MIDDLE KINGDOM BY FRANCIS C W FUNG, PH.D.

BRIEF TALE OF CHINESE UNIFICATION PAST PRESENT FUTURE RETURN OF MIDDLE KINGDOM BY FRANCIS C W FUNG, PH.D. Chinese people are very diverse and individualistic because of the hilly nature of its landscape divides the nation into multitude of regions by dialect, traditions and cuisines. China cascades down towards the East and North in steps that keep the nation separated. Until modern times travel to different regions of different elevation had not been easy. James Fallow, the consummate reporter on China, once said that compare to the U.S., the Chinese people are connected loosy goosy and hard to unite even today. The Chinese 20th century revolutionary Sun Yatsen frustrated by the difficulties to unite China had the famous saying that Chinese people are like a pan of loose sand lack of cohesion. That is why in Chinese history, leaders who could unite China are heroes and were highly regarded by Chinese people. Leaders such as Qin Shi Huang Di, first emperor of Han dynasty ( Han Gao Tsu), first emperor of Tang Dynasty (LI Sei Ming)and last but not the least, Mao Tzetung , the father of modern China, are all fondly remembered by all Chinese people as unifier and national heroes. To this day Chinese people still call themselves as Han people despite its diversity. It is quite amazing that one billion diverse people call themselves Han people as a whole. That is unique in human civilization except in religions that bound people together by pretense of super natural God. However despite the name Han race and the establishment of the Middle Kingdom over two thousand years, Chines people are prone to division and hard to unite because of its people’s diversity. The unification of China had always relied on force and charismatic leaders such as Qin Shi Huang Di Han Goa Tsu and Mao Tsetung. Despite the existence of one common language China remain divided by a multitude of different dialects due to its difficult terrains that divide the nation into regional parts. China never had an unifying national religion such as Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism. Instead China has a Hodge podge religion that comprised of all abovereligions. To this day according to a recent Pew international survey only 3% of Chinese people think that religion is important in their life. This the lowest percentage among all nations surveyed. In contrast Ethiopia scored 98% and U.S. scored 53% in the middle of the survey. In this sense the U.S. is more united than China and easier to govern. Without the adhesive power of a unifying national religion as in all major nations of the world, each dynasty of China including the foreign Manchu dynasty that came to power rely on Confucian philosophy to govern China. However Confucian philosophy does not have a unifying all powerful mighty God to provide adhesion as in all other major nations of the world. That is why every two or three hundred years the Chinese empire felt apart and a new leader must reconquer China by military force. In the modern era after the fall of the Manchu empire the influence of Confucian philosophy is on the wane especially after the Cultural Revolution and Mao’s death. In contemporary China both Confucian philosophy and Communism established by Mao vanished under the assault of foreign influence during the last forty years of reform and open up. China is now badly in need of an unifying force. Unlike other major nations in the world as demonstrated by the previous Pew survey China does not have a bonding faith. Contrary to many Western media’s wish China is not about to engage in a Gobachev sting of instant Westernization. Nor will China follow the example of political reform of South Korea and Taiwan as suggested by James Fallow and other Western think tanks. Chana needs to revive its ancient culture as roots for rejuvenation. Fortunately for China since Xi Jingping became president of China in 2013 he launched successfully with great visions the China Dream and Chinese rejuvenation. Chinese rejuvenation is to overcome past 100 years of humiliation by Western powers. This is the dream of all Chinese intellectuals after the fall of Qing dynasty. The Chinese rejuvenation of President Xi Jingping has two centenary goals. First is to build a modestly prosperous China (Xiaokong society) by 2020 the centenary of birth of Chinese Communist party, the second is to build a modern and harmonious China by 2049 the centenary birth of modern China. These two objectives of China are part of President Xi Jingping’s vision to unite China. As predicted by many Chinese and Western scholars these two objectives will last as long as the aspiration is valid. China will need new faith as adhesion after the centenary objectives are achieved. Fortunately for China again President Xi Jingping has the vision to see that China needs to revive ancient Chinese culture and philosophy to rejuvenate. Recently he wisely launched movements to revive Confucianism and Chinese ancient philosophy. Please refer to his speech titled “It is time for philosophy to flourish” and my essay “Time for philosophy to flourish rejuvenation of China and harmony for the world”. Today under Xi Jingping initiative China announced that traditional culture to play bigger role in textbooks. Wang Xuming, the president of Language and Culture Press, said that the new high school textbooks are aimed at improving students' moral standards and promoting traditional culture by including more Chinese classics. This is one of the greatest policies for China to adopt. As Xi points out the return to Chinese cultural roots is essential base to build China rejuvenation. This will restore Chinese confidence to launch a new future belief system. This is timely and necessary; the whole nation endorses the policy. Because of president Xi Jingping’s vision to launch China dream, rejuvenation of China plus his “One belt One road “ initiatives (Silk road economic belt and 21st century marine time silk road) to unify China Xi is regarded as the great hero of today’s China. All previous Chinese unifying rulers of China such as Qin Shi Huang Di, Han Gaotsu, Tang Minghuang and Mao Tzetung all used military power. In contrast Xi used soft power such as philosophy, ancient culture, concept of community of common destiny, win win mutual development to unify China and the world. It is easy to see that China will soon be the Middle Kingdom with revived Confucian culture and rejuvenated power again. The biggest fear of Chinese people is chaos and instability. Chinese people want peace and harmony by ancient culture teaching. That is why they regard unifiers as heroes. To sum up President Xi Jingping’s prescription for China and the world are rejuvenation of China for a multipolar world, “One belt one road” infrastructures for world connectivity, win-win mutual development, community of common destiny and finally let philosophy flourish around the world. All these prescriptions in time will bring peace and harmony to China and the World!!!! In Service of world harmony Francis C W Fung, Ph.D. Director General

TIME FOR PHILOSOPHY TO FLOURISH REJUVENATION OF CHINA AND HARMONY FOR THE WORLD

TIME FOR PHILOSOPHY TO FLOURISH REJUVENATION OF CHINA AND HARMON FOR THE WORLD "Xi, it is time for philosophy to flourish." Rejuvenation of China is the rise of Chinese culture. Philosophy is human wisdom above religion. It is the soul of a nation. Human created God, not the other way around. Harmony is the essence of philosophy, rule of nature. Philosophy is the highest human abstract thinking. In all art form it can soar above heaven. It is human wisdom without limit. Human strength comes from self-discipline. It comes from within. It can be guided by a self-founded national philosophy, not law imposed from outside. Philosophy is usually comes as guidance and up to self-discipline. U.S. crime and drug problems ultimately can only solved by self-discipline and not by law alone. Chinese culture is strong in philosophy and self-discipline. Philosophy propagates by resonance. China did not need to use force to spread its ancient culture. Yet Chinese styled Confucian culture is practiced all over the world especially in Asia. American culture is strong in law and ideology. They are not inherent human nature like philosophy. Thus America is inclined to preach and forcefully interfering in other countries domestic affairs. In today's fast internet world and social media we must convey eastern philosophy guidance with self-discipline. Western liberal thinking teaches us behaviors without self-restraint. All Confucian scholars know we must discipline ourselves with good virtue, learn to manage our family harmoniously before we can govern our nation for the benefit of our people. Eastern philosophy teaches meritocracy and world unity. All men are brothers within the four seas. We are constantly reminded of this belief. The merits of Eastern philosophy teach us to uphold the mantra of community of common destiny. This belief will cultivate the necessary win-win cooperation spirit for world harmony. Western extreme liberal thinking breeds selfishness and aggression. That is the reason today’s world is mired in hopeless self-destruction. Harmony and peace can only be achieved by a rebalance of East and West culture. For world peace and harmony America and China must learn from each other. In service of harmony Francis C W Fung, PH.D.

BEST DEFENSE AGAINST LASER WEAPONS

BEST CHINESE DEFENSE AGAINST U.S. LASER WEAPONS MULTIPLE WATER MIST CANNONS IS BEST DEFENCE AGAINST STRONG LASER WEAPONS CHINESE WATER MIST CANNON FOR POLLUTION CONTROL CAN BE VERY EFFECTIVE AGAINST U.S. LASER WEAPONRY By Francis C W Fung, Ph.D. The following attached article by Kyle Mizokami from Popular Mechanics the author claimed “The Chinese PLA is experimenting with creating smoke in two ways: creating sulfur trioxide smoke through burning materials (spraying oil on a hot diesel engine is one way to do it) or creating an oily fog. The PLA Chemical Corps plans to use a new multiple canister launcher (pictured) to rapidly lay down protective smoke screens for nearby friendly forces. While this idea is fine and dandy for protecting forces standing still, there are some limitations. A protective screen of particulates is subject to the fickle whims of Mother Nature, and can linger for hours or mere minutes until dispersed by local winds. Smoke also works both ways: a PLA unit being smothered by a protective smokescreen is effectively blinded, and is unable to move lest it lose its protection.” For the information of Kyle Mizokami, Readers of Popular Mechanic and all military experts of the World, China already has in mass production water mist cannons which are used routinely in China for city pollution control. This kind of water mist cannon can annihilate incoming deadly laser beam by scattering light as well as lowering the temperature of the laser beam. Thus this type of water mist cannon can be very effective in defending against U.S. laser weaponry by creating instant fog as a friendly shield. The water mist is nontoxic compared to other chemicals suggested by Mizokami. The beauty of the water cannon fog created is instant and also disperses in a reasonable time if the threat stops. Against continuing laser beam, one can continue to deploy more fog, the energy required by the water mist cannon is low enough to outlast the high power destructive laser beam. For naval operation the supply of water to create fog is obviously unlimited. In real application against strong laser beams multiple water mist cannons can be teamed up in simultaneous action. Thus one can conclude that China already has readily available superior counter U.S. laser defensive weapons. There is no need for Chinese military's Chemical Corps. to develop the next appropriate defense strategy as suggested by Mizokami in the following article.
