Not chapstick, though it's winter here and some are chaffing with the Trump win.
Chopsticks are the traditional utensils in China and other Oriental environs.
It takes some dexterous skill, but they can be used with aplomb. China's like that.
I urge people to study China's history. There are parallels with the West and differences too. Cultural differences are interesting but I'll let you research. They have contributed much wherever they go and many things we take for granted had origins in China.
China has had designs on conquering the world for millennia. The Red Chinese are no exception. It is a combination of military, economic and social subversion.
All collectivism leads to control.
We have flavors of communism with some mixed with fascism such as Red China. There is Islamic supremacism which masks itself in religion. The others proclaim the state as god.
All relinquish individuality, with few in charge. They also mask something else.
There are a very few, some string pullers, but several who remain in the shadows. Old families old money.
Without using labels (call them what you want), its all about a hierarchy or lowerarchy and without going into detail, it is also spiritual. I'll deal with that soon.
So study it all. People are good or evil or straddling. Many worldwide crave Freedom.
And they obviously won't let it be generally known, but Communist China is wracked with little revolts.
As a result, they crack down, including mobile executions.
We all know where that eventually leads, though with our Chinese world neighbors, it's a very winding road.
Brushfires of Freedom in the minds of men and women will not be put out.
Sure it's a hit and miss. But Freedom is rising worldwide.
We are on the verge of the most crucial time in history.
Regardless, there are two kinds of people; those who seek Freedom and those who prefer to be told what to do.
Learn to use chopsticks, new skills and sew seeds of Liberty where you can.
