Look at you old back breaking kids.
I'm glad you chumps are all still hanging on, Jube here is as old as it gets now but he still loves you all.
Also consider this a late apology for being an shitlord for the last like bazillion years.
"Oh boy here we go, it's Jube and Chris and B and the rest of the goonies in the Discord chat here to rile things up again"
Well you're not wrong my Kingdom Hearts hating tumblr browsing friendo, but unlike the idiots above me I am here for more noble reasons.
See rather than post an unpopular opinion or just something inflammatory to get some obvious posts and or deletes I am instead going to make a post about all the good things that have come from the Chinese Triads operating publically in China.
One might wonder "Doesn't the police care? The Government? They are just parading around the streets in uniform".
Well the Chinese leave Honk Kong alone. They barricade the roads to control trade to the mainland but they know how business is done.
"But doesn't the illegal smuggling worry the Chinese govment?"
Well China knows that the Red Arrow are business owners, entrepreneurs, community leaders. They keep the citizens safe and protect from outside influence.
"Outside influences? What is China afraid of"
Well you see China is the last sovereign government in the world. Free from the UN's influence they are authoritarian but willing. They give their people the freedom they want. It's real freedom. Freedom to own property, make a profit, make your life. The west so afraid of strong government now has NO government. Only financial power.
"But hold on Jube, our governments have limited power by design"
All rhetoric my aposematistic friend. Ever wonder where those slogans come from? Well paid researchers! Think tanks as they are called, funded by big businesses.
"Come on Jube, that's hardly as sinister as some dictator like China's premier"
No way man! It's privately funded propaganda, the trilateral commission in the USA for instance.
"But Jube, the separation of powers acknowledges the petty ambitions of individuals. That's its strength"
To which I say, a system organized around the weakest qualities of its individuals will produce the same qualities in its leaders
"But Jube, maybe these qualities are just an inherent part of human nature"
The mark of an educated man is the supression of said qualities in favor of better ones. The same is true for civilization
"Jube what the **** is this ****?"
Look it was either this or I do another Madara Uchiwawa pasta. Which I will do anyway.
