Jeff J. Brown can’t think of a better way to come back to visit the United States, than to read Linh Dinh’s "Postcards from the End of America", and interview him on "China Rising Radio Sinoland". It is hard to find someone who can really capture the zeitgeist of America’s capitalist underbelly, as Linh Dinh does.

Linh Dinh, a new Maxim Gorky kind of writer, a rarity in today's celebrity mad literary world.

Jeff, sound quality dude. This too important. I don't want to miss things like this but I gotta go another channel. Thought you'd want to know.
TheConcernedCitizen
Thanks Jeff! Appreciate your responding to me. I'll do as you suggested.

I was at a McDonald's and Linh was moving all over the place. Worst quality interview I've ever done. Sorry about that. Listen to the others, they are much better quality! Jeff in China.

Jeff - I am very concerned where America has been headed. I understand better now your perspective and your place on the internet. It probably goes without saying that I am no fan of either China or Russia, as I believe they too are headed wrongly. No one can doubt China's increase in economic prosperity, political influence and military strength. Russia is tying to get on the same trajectory, but have not managed corruption as well as China has. That does not mean I am an enemy of the people. Instead, I am focused on understanding issues facing my country and helping to overcome them. So I will probably avoid, and apologize every time I forget, not to get emotionally wrapped up in some verbal, and all-too-often disrespectful slug-fest on whose hand is on top of the bat. I'd rather point put where China is doing the smarter thing, the not so smart thing, and the flat our bad thing. I will also counter-balance that with the mistakes America makes a priori, posteriori, or reflexively to China's moves. Lastly, some Asian trivia - Do you remember the publication Far Eastern Economic Review? I miss that rag.

Joe, if not China and Russia, which countries are heading in the right direction? Yes, I have FEER articles saved on my hard drive.

Jeff - Are you saying the Chinese are not raping and plundering other countries in the world; what are they doing in Africa? Never were expansionist - Not so? Ask the Tibetans, ask the Uighur, ask the Mongols. How do you see their expansion activities in the South China Sea? What of the claims of the countries that live adjacent to the natural resources, as opposed to China lives hundreds of miles away? What of the island military bases that they are building, what of their global arm sales, their sales of nuclear technology to North Korea? You bragged about Chinese builders and engineers. where did they learn those skills? Come on man.. China is not socialist communist - it is as capitalist as we are in addition to socialist (as are we). Where is the communism? I don't mind your bashing our Government, who can argue? But you say it as thought the Chinese government are a bunch of boy scouts - they are not. I think it is the way you present you viewpoints, you are positive China, negative American or negative America, silent on China, or worst, wrong on China and negative on America. The Chinese government is cool until someone internally or globally tries to stand out. Then to is swiftly brutal and inflexible. I liken China to a giant monopoly ruled by a self appointed royal court, taking advantage of an open West and a brutally controlled Chinese people. Here's the plan, do or die. It may be beating America as a Capitalist country, but you can (at least here) say what you want. If you were to change your dialogue and become critical of the Chinese Royal court, your welcome mat in China would be pulled, and you would find yourself blogging from France or the US, where at least you are free to speak your mind. It is funny how you said China was always communist nation, when they were really always a warring monarchy. I watch where my country is headed and am determining how I can help turn it around. I see you've made your decision too. You have decided to hedge your bet, carry two passports and live as a sycophant propagandist for the Chinese Government. I'm not judging, who the hell am I to tell you how to live your life, but you are not BS'g anyone. Geez....

Hey Joe, I can't wait for you to help turn America around! There's nothing America needs more than another pseudo-intellectual who can see the problems with China.

@Jeff: Hi Jeff, been binge-watching all your videos. What a breath of fresh air to see someone from the West who actually see China as what it really is, a gentle peace-loving giant who just wants to take care of its citizens. But of course the Western puppetmasters hate it to bits because it can inspire all developing countries, who were forced to adopt Western democracy as a precondition to get loans from IMF or World Bank, to pursue the China model. I myself am a Chinese Indonesian who grew up in a "democratic" state but later woke up from US propaganda. Great work again man! @Joe: China is looking for business profits in Africa, that's the short answer. Longer one being that it's part of the Belt and Road Initiative where Chinese SOEs or private companies partner up with governments from many countries who're interested to have the Chinese build their infrastructure. It's not a donation like the typical Western foreign aid but a win-win proposition. The Kenyans or Djiboutians would have to pay back the long term 20 or 30-year loan. But with the increase of GDP these infrastructure projects would bring, most likely they will have more than enough to pay. And all these countries would be forever friends with China and have growing bilateral trades as they move up to become middle income economies. See that's the difference between China's presence in Africa and the West'. China doesn't force Chinese values as a prerequisite for the loans, it just give them if the projects are feasible. It's a relationship between equal business partners, not a master-slave one with the West. China has been trading extensively with its tributary states in South East Asia for millenia through the South China Sea up until the end of Qing dynasty. Only later the British barbarians put gunboats on its shores and force opium trade. Other European states also joined in on the action. After they plundered China's wealth, as they then leave China after WW2, they return the islands ... not to China ... but to US colonies (Japan & Philippines). The then weak China wasn't even invited when they return those islands. It was a cowardly way of the West to stil maintain foothold at China's doorstep and encircle it. See how patient China is as a 5000 year-old civilization who's never even once cross the ocean to colonize any culture although it was certainly more than able to do so, but it had to see these Western invaders sailing half way across the globe to tell China what island belongs to who etc. While the US just occupy Guam until this day without ever need to explain why hahaha. Chinese sales of nuclear technology to DPRK? Don't insult the North Koreans please, they're very capable of developing their own nuclear weapons. Even if China really did help them with it, it has every right to do so. Especially with the belligerent terrorist state like the US keeps playing war games with poodle state South Korea right in front of its gate. It's actually fair if one day China decides to deploy its fleet to sail around the Gulf of Mexico with guns ablazing just for the US to taste its own medicine. But I think China is waaaay too classy (and wise with its spending) to stoop down to US levels hahaha.

Yes, Joe I am saying that China is not raping and plundering other countries. It is simply not in their geopolitical DNA.

Jeff, I am new to your blog post, and welcome your viewpoints and your guests. My first impression is I agree with you that China is rising but not necessarily all of it is goodness. I wholeheartedly agree that my home, the USA, is in a steep decline, primarily from driven from the betrayal form the top down and it makes me very sad. China and America compete for a variety of reasons, objectives and principles domestically, and globally. I believe it is very important to keep an eye on both internal and external dynamics, as well as their relationships to one another. I am sure you have your detractors. I hope to be an active viewer and commentator. I will be an advocate for the US, and will always be honest doing so. I never subscribed to the notion that the word advocacy contain any Latin roots indicative of bias, lying and obfuscation. We will at times disagree, as I see the benefits of capitalism and socialism, but we will always engage for the better. I really liked Linh Dinh's talk with Chris Hedges. I am enjoying this one but wish the audio for Mr. Linh was better.

Sorry about the poor quality audio. Linh asked me a number of questions at the end, so I ended up being interviewed too!
