Another Chinese national has been just accused of spying against the U.S. [A Chinese ‘tourist’ accused of espionage is the latest example of a growing threat to US Security, by Justin Rohrlich, QZ, January 5, 2020]. It’s just another skirmish in the simmering war between China and the U.S. The U.S. is ill-prepared because the... Read More
Above, modern China, and a homeless camp in San Francisco
I spent most of September in China, so last month's diary was all China, China, China. This month's won't be; but I do have a few afterthoughts to record. A few days after I returned, just when I thought I'd gotten China out of my system and was ready to concentrate on America and her... Read More

Earlier by Patrick J. Buchanan: Is China the Country of the Future? I still have China on my mind following last month's jaunt there. My conclusion: they’re going to eat our lunch—unless we have a “Sputnik Moment.” And even then, unlike in 1957, it’s not clear the U.S. can respond. Look at the flap involving... Read More

See, earlier, by Linda Thom: Unrest In Urumqi—A Californian Draws A Dark Lesson For Her Own State There’s an old stereotype that “all Chinese people look the same.” However, what people really mean is that Han Chinese people, who make up 91% of the population of the People’s Republic of China, look the same. There... Read More

• Monday, September 9th: Leaving New York. We fly Air China from New York to Peking, a single 13½-hour flight. There is no way an economy-class flight that long can be enjoyable, but Air China don't do anything to make it wor
I like Pachelbel's Canon in D. Sure it's overplayed, but I like it, so I was stirred to action after hearing Prof. Greenberg pass some mildly snarky comments about it in one of his lectures. The precise action I was stirred to was, I used the Canon for sign-off music in my August 23rd podcast.... Read More
Regular readers of VDARE will be familiar with what Steve Sailer calls The World's Most Important Graph. That's the one that shows the U.N. population projections, by region, through the end of this century. If that's The World's Most Important Graph, I hereby nominate David Becker's "Global distribution of national IQs from psychometric measurements and... Read More
As mentioned in Radio Derb, the Mrs. and I took a break in Cancún, Mexico the first week of December. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time; nothing much out of the ordinary, just five days in a very nice hotel (this one) lounging on the beach and poolside, with side trips to Mayan ruins and...

It’s possible to derive some comfort from contemplating the Chinese. Sure, unless something radical is done, Western civilization is going to collapsedue to the most intelligent women having the fewest children and massive IQ (and highly fertile) immigration from the Third World [See At Our Wits’ End: Why We’re Becoming Less Intelligent and What It...

I’ve met more than my share of famous people, just because I’ve lived mostly in big metropolises and hung around with journalists a lot. Among those encounters: one with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, back in 1984. I wrote up an account in a column back in 2003. Well, His Holiness is still among us... Read More

The current (November 19th-25th) issue of The Economist has a striking long article about Chinese — more precisely, ChiCom — nationalism. Bottom line: it’s racial. I’ve made this point myself, e.g. in my 2001 China Diary: (You can argue that it’s really ethnic, not racial. After 4,000 years of absorbing border tribes and enduring long... Read More
John Derbyshire teaching English (but not spying) in Communist China, Christmas 1982.
Thirty-three years ago I was teaching English at a college in provincial China. This was the early post-Mao period, and foreigners were a rarity outside the big cities. I think I was the only one resident in that town since the Russians had left twenty years previously. I was on friendly terms with some of... Read More
The thorny tangles of identity, ethnicity, nation, and race, are made thornier under a state ideology based on utopian fantasies and the denial of reality. Sound familiar? It should; it’s what we write about here at VDARE.com. As a mind-clearing exercise, it helps to occasionally step back from our domestic broils to look at how... Read More
[This is the text of a talk I gave to the American Renaissanceconference on April 26th, 2014. The talk was organized around PowerPoint slides, links to which are scattered through the text. As is always the case, the delivered talk differed somewhat from the text here. AmRen will be posting the talk on on their... Read More
Are the ChiComs feeling their oats? Exhibit A: British Prime Minister David Cameron spent the first three days of this week in China. The Communists greeted him withsneering arrogance. The Global Times, a major Party propagandaorgan, honked that: Another Communist Party organ, the China Centre for International Economic Exchanges, invited to submit questions to Cameron,...

I don’t have sufficient experience or knowledge to call myself an Old China Hand, but I can claim to be something of an authority on China punditry—an Old “Old China Hand” Hand, as it were. I think I’ve read ’em all at some time or other in the past forty years, from Matteo Ricciand the... Read More
