To counter China’s “soft power”, UK new Prime Minister, Sunak said he planned to close all 30 of China’s Confucius Institutes in the UK. Confucius Institutes are China-funded educational and cultural centers that offer Chinese language courses, train teachers and hold the HSK Examination (Chinese proficiency test).

Obviously Sunak wants to follow United States’ policy of depressing China, acting like Biden’s lap dog.

Sunak is making a big mistake in his refusal to collaborate with China for mutual benefit. China is a very big market. He is making the same mistake as Brexit, UK getting out of EU which is a big market. He does not even understand the basic principle of doing business.

China is the factory of the world. It can produce almost everything cheaper than UK. UK consumers should buy Chinese products to save money so that China can buy things which UK can produce cheaper or not available in China.

In fact, Sunak should encourage UK citizens to learn Chinese to be able to trade with China because China is the second if not the richest nation in the world.

Why were the teachings of Confucius so important to the leaders of China?

Confucius’ teachings became the state philosophy of China during the Han Dynasty. His teachings were the basis of the government civil service exams. The government liked Confucianism because it taught to respect authority and that a strong central government was important.

What did Confucius teach about leadership?

Confucius highlighted the duties of a leader by explaining the proper way to think, act, and make decisions in government positions. Qualities such as continual learning, frugality, humility, confidence, commitment, and loyalty are all examples found within his teachings that provide a framework for leadership.

Did Confucius believe in respect for everyone?

The Confucian solution. Confucius believed that to restore order, societies had to encourage certain virtues, such as loyalty, trustworthiness, and respecting your elders. He believed people were capable of attaining these and other virtues through education.

The Confucian leader gains the support and confidence of his followers through virtue and not violence. He prefers to “rule by virtue” rather than “rule by laws”. In political leadership, Confucius believed that a government is ruled by a leader’s personal and moral values.

I don't deny UK university education is good,BUT thing starts to change now. With less funding, UK universities have to go commercial. They are now business oriented. Tuition fees for medical courses at least rm 1 million for a 5 year course, last time was only rm 300k in 2003 excluding lodging, living and travelling expenses (Don't ask me why I know, my daughter still with NHS).

Waloe so expensive. Better study how to be politicians in my. Must learn talk like Pak lebai

Confucius has good wisdom, knowledge and understanding and his teachings are very philosophical.
Fortunately, there is no element of religion in them so the Chinese government which is applying communism ideology (do not believe in God) in the government, can blend/adopted the teachings of Confucius as the state philosophy like during the Han dynasty.

2022-10-27 18:23


Communism was founded in Europe and not in China or Russia.

The ideology was brought to the New World but not successful like the Democrats or Republicans.

However, the people who formed the white people is the New World, after Christopher Columbus, were the Europeans. They were from the Dutch, France/Loiusiana, Germans/Donald Trump's parents, English, Irish

The Europeans are from Japheth who is one of the 3 sons of Noah.
God reset/restart the world with a huge flood and destroyed the wickedness that He can not bear to see anymore.

The sons of Noah are

The Sons of Noah
18 The sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth. (Ham was the father of Canaan.) 19 These were the three sons of Noah, and from them came the people who were scattered over the whole earth.

20 Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded[a] to plant a vineyard. 21 When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent. 22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father naked and told his two brothers outside. 23 But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father’s naked body. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father naked.

24 When Noah awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him, 25 he said,

“Cursed be Canaan!
The lowest of slaves
will he be to his brothers.”

26 He also said,

“Praise be to the Lord, the God of Shem!
May Canaan be the slave of Shem.
27 May God extend Japheth’s[b] territory;
may Japheth live in the tents of Shem,
and may Canaan be the slave of Japheth.”

2022-10-27 18:36


Why Japheth/Europeans like to enslave others?

2022-10-27 18:36


If we can not find the answer from the university professor, maybe we can try to find from the Bible alone.

2022-10-27 18:44


Genesis 9:22 -

>>Ham saw his father Noah naked. He went to tell his 2 brothers, instead of offering to cover the shame of his father.
>>His 2 brothers (Japheth and Shem) respectfully, walked backward with the garment to cover Noah, without embarrassed the father further.
>>As a result, Noah put a curse on Ham's son, Canaan, who is the 4th child.

Who are the descendant's of Canaan?

Anyway, at verse 9:25 , Noah said, Canaan will be the slave for Shem and Japheth.

25 he said,

“Cursed be Canaan!
The lowest of slaves
will he be to his brothers.”

Who came from Canaan?

Verse 9:27 -
27 May God extend Japheth’s[b] territory;
may Japheth live in the tents of Shem,
and may Canaan be the slave of Japheth.”

Japheth will enlarge their lands/territories, concurring others' land and turning Canaan (Why not the father ham?) into slaves.

But Japheth need to depend on Shem (the Jews come from Shem, anti-Semitism, Anti-Shem), live in the tents of Shem.
USA is depending on the Jews.

Genesis9:19 These were the three sons of Noah, and from them came the people who were scattered over the whole earth.

>All the human beings today came from the 3 children of Noah.
>Abraham came from Shem, eventually Isaac, Jacob/Israel.

>Then 7 laws (7 laws of Noah) were given instead of 10 (10 Commandments), inclusive not to eat meat from a living animal. Need to slaughter the animal before eating the meat. Also no worshipping of idols.

Some churches in UK turned into restaurants or pubs. Sad.
Lack of wisdom.

But King Solomon asked for Wisdom from the LORD, the Creator of the world.
And God gave him more than wisdom.

1 King 3 -

10 The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for this. 11 So God said to him, “Since you have asked for this and not for long life or wealth for yourself, nor have asked for the death of your enemies but for discernment in administering justice, 12 I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. 13 Moreover, I will give you what you have not asked for—both wealth and honor—so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among kings. 14 And if you walk in obedience to me and keep my decrees and commands as David your father did, I will give you a long life.”

Confucius also got good wisdom but not recorded that the wisdom came from God.

Do Read King Solomon's wisdoms and plenty in Proverbs.
Yes, the least

UK is a confused country. Good that now they start to stop more confucius.

2022-10-27 23:51


Very important to shut these things down - to put them in their place.

the UK's foreign policy is to follow the US's consistently so that Anglo-Saxons and their language will continue to prevail .

2022-10-28 08:06


Confucius's thinking said, if you do not wants others to do unto you, you must not do to others. So world would be peace and no war. That is why you see China never attacks/colonize other countries. This should be a good principle for world to follow.

2022-10-28 08:34


Same like Christian unfortunately fail to uphold Bible good virtue learning. Barbarian failed Jesus Christ

2022-10-28 09:09


Confucius lived about 2,600 years ago.

His teachings about not to do what you do not want others to do unto you was mentioned by Jesus, captured in the Bible.

Mathew 7:12 - 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

Luke 6:31 - 31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Maybe Jesus got the ideal from Confucius also.

But in the Old Testament/Tanakh, Leviticus,

11 “‘Do not steal.

“‘Do not lie.

“‘Do not deceive one another.

12 “‘Do not swear falsely by my name and so profane the name of your God. I am the Lord.

13 “‘Do not defraud or rob your neighbor.

“‘Do not hold back the wages of a hired worker overnight.

14 “‘Do not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block in front of the blind, but fear your God. I am the Lord.

15 “‘Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.

16 “‘Do not go about spreading slander among your people.

“‘Do not do anything that endangers your neighbor’s life. I am the Lord.

NOT exactly similar in one sentence but the meaning is there.

However, in Leviticus 19:28 - 28 “‘Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord.

>ONE is not allowed to tattoo his bodies.

2022-10-28 09:16


Malulah to declare oneself as Christian but uphold none of Bible teachings. No wonder good virtue learning is banned

2022-10-28 09:25


Let say, instead of Sunak but one brilliant Chinese man is standing there debating with another white man (the Labour party leader), keep saying "Mr Speaker, Mr Speaker....", what will be the atmosphere?

Chinese usually will be more reluctant to let go his grassroot identity and Indians. Even he believe that he is born in Britain, but the Europeans still see him as a colourful man or an Asian/Chinese in the case a Chinese MP.

2022-10-28 09:28


USA or many countries are no longer entitled to be called "a Christian nation". Gone are the days. Is shameful.

For example, USA was established by the oath from the Bible. In the currency/note, there is "In God we trust".

Liberalism. Crookedness among the people. Abomination of God.
Attract the wrath from God.
Small amount of the people are very worried for the declination of reputation that they were proud of.

2022-10-28 09:35


As known, sins can be committed by an individual, organization/listed company in KLSE and a country/nation.

Sin will not be escaped but surely punished by the human court or Court in Heaven.
Sometime God would use another country to teach/punish a certain country.
At another, God will use another country to help/restore one loved/loveable country.

You can see. Where are those countries such as Greek, Romans, Babylonians, Assyrians, Pharoah Egyptian?

Probably the Chinese is still there. An old civilization but has disconnected from God, communism.
And the God chosen people are still around and will be around holding God's commandments.

Biden already warned Sunak to follow the US's foreign policy at his first day in office.

2022-10-28 10:24


Truss was under a Grand Delusion. -That UK is exceptional. UK does not need to follow rules. That Grand delusion came crashing down. Sanuk certainly does not have a magic wand. What the market wants ? - more taxes. more spending cuts. The whole economic problem is not monetary. It is about sanctioning themselves and getting into another country's war.

God is on the side of His people, otherwise how long this small nation can last when it is surrounded by many hostile countries.

These passages proved to the community of faith:-

Psalm 124

New International Version
Psalm 124
A song of ascents. Of David.
1 If the Lord had not been on our side—
let Israel say—
2 if the Lord had not been on our side
when people attacked us,
3 they would have swallowed us alive
when their anger flared against us;

>The daily existence of the small country is by the non stop earnest/fervent prayers of the tzaddik.

2022-10-28 11:06


This victim, insecurity mindset of Israel changed to xi who feel strongly same way.. thus paranoid to defend from barbarian ...

2022-10-28 11:12


Psalm 20:7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.

>Some trust the missiles/drones and advanced weapons instead of the LORD.

The Confucius Institute is run by the CCP United Front Department, which is the overseas propaganda arm or disinformation wing of the CCP. They are well known for harassing and intimidating overseas Chinese students (mainland or non-China citizens) in US, Australia, Canada and UK, if they go against the CCP's narratives or . It is like having Malaysian Biro Tata Negara settiing up language centres in foreign universities and providing their narratives about fantastic race based policies in Malaysia.

2022-10-28 14:57


Obviously Sunak wants to follow United States’ policy of depressing China, acting like Biden’s lap dog.

Answer : for older generation chinese, the word 'lapdog' is the defence mechanism everytime they disagree! The other mecahnism words are 'racist' 'stoopid' and so forth!
Look, Confucius Institutte is nothing more than CCP front overseas! Fine, let CCP open their own institute but you wont find any western institution in China! CCP also ban almost everything western like Google, Youtube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and so forth! It's take two to tango!

2022-10-28 16:32


And for goodness sake, please stop the insults on dogs! Dogs are the most loyal animal human ever have! Why use degrading word like 'lapdog' to describe a good nature of dogs! And to liken human to dogs is not only insulting but also degrading to dogs!

2022-10-28 16:34


China and CCP love Biden and his family! Easy to control and manipulate.. plenty of receipts!

2022-10-28 17:08


The government will keep track on its citizens...no traitors. Propaganda through certain platforms.

Dogs and human beings are so far apart. They don't have the divine souls like us. But the dogs are innocent ones.
But I got 2 dogs, 1 Lab and 1 Belgium Shepherd/Melinois.

1.UOB Spore recorded high earning for the 3QR, 1.4Bil dollar Spore.
Not sure about Spore stock exchange ruling. Maybe got 1 mth grace period to disclose . Unlike in KLSE, 2 months.


Anyway, it will pay more profit tax to the gov at the expense of the borrowers/customers whose purchasing power has been decreased reason being the inflation has to be tackled by higher interest charged by the banks.

So, how the government or even our Malaysia gov, in a similar picture/scenario, with the extra income from the taxation, can help the borrowers?

Think harder, if can debunk, this economy theory, that inflation has to be dealt with interest hikes.

Japan gov spent so much USD in their coffer/safe-keeping to prop up the value of their Yen.
This inflation exported from the US is so harmful. Like the covid.

US inflations seem out of control and no medicines to cure since the day Trump enforced trade war with China as the world goods supply chain have been affected. Likewise, the war in Ukraine also have a big bearing effects on inflation. And also the ban on chips supply to China and its repercussions.

2022-10-28 19:15


True. These are the causes that making the inflation experiencing in many economies/countries.
Those are with less USD in their reserve were damaged economically such as Sri Lanka, Turkey
