18h12 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 25 JUNE 2014: As if Prof. David Brat's suggesting that Christians use evangelisation and mission work as tools for the promotion of ons styl ekonomesie vryheid in undeveloped lands wasn't disgusting enow for to call for the old bicarbonate, there's also some among the allies, overt and secret, therefor who would like to see in free-trade policies thus rooted the "new wave" in American foreign aid and socioeconomic development.

Which, I understand, is to be packaged as the "Ronald Reagan Free-Enterprise Development Zone" (as if lily-gilding wasn't awful enow).

But when all is said and done, IMHO, such is really a cheap lily-gilding of Imperial Japan's "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere" concept before World War II, which held, at its heart, that the Euro-centrist colonialism then dominant among British, French, American and Portugese stakeholders was doing nothing for Asian interests and only risked worsening further enslavement of Asians to European masters; hence, the thinking in Tokyo went, the need for an Asia-centrist colonial policy as served Asian interests. (Never mind that the Japanese were themselves in their colonial misadventures in Korea, Formosa, Manchuria, the Liaotung Peninsula and the Pescadores Islands.)

Which, in theory, would translate into a shared, Asia-centrist worldview which would benefit Asia, never mind that the zaibatsu cartels as were indirect stakeholders in the "Co-Prosperity" ideal were only interested in cheap raw material and equally cheap labour from Japan's potential occupied territories across East Asia and well into the western Pacific for the benefit of Japanese industry, much of it under zaibatsu control and dominion reinforced by rather blatant vertical integration.

Come to think of it, then, Your Correspondent has to wonder if what we have here is essentially a rather warped attempt in crossbreeding socioeconomic concepts that would make the Lystenkian pseudogenetics of Stalinist Russia look like an awful weekend among the waterslides of Wisconsin Dells. ("Lystenkian," know, is with reference to the now-discredited thinking of Soviet ur-genetic scientist Trofim Lystenko [d. 1978], which held that external environmental changes in an organism would theoretically be beneficial to said organism over time; such would be used in the Stalin era of the then-Soviet Union as a propaganda tool rather heavily.)

In other words, risking some rather strange fruit in the end.

Finally, do you think the following is an accurate representation of Your Correspondent?



So until next time, folks ... "73"
