Inside Digital China With Jeffrey Towson

"High at one for police station. We We'd ask Jeff we had a speaker on China and Asia that grants visas professor at Beijing University and older older of a great book which is really a quick greeting driven understanding about China which is called the one hour channel Hannibal so thank you Jimmy disquisition Jeffrey now pleasure to be here. Thank you so let's start from urology actually actually get you know to study the Chinese Market Economy Ellison your story I just a sort of international international business guy doing a lot of deal stuff's out of the Middle East and slowly started doing more with Asia this is good fifteen eighteen years ago and I was sort of half in the developing world in half in the US and it was pretty clear that Asia was the place to be early early on and China and Asia was just going to be a huge story so I was kind of on the ground is pretty obvious what's going to happen so I started focusing more and more on China Asia and I've been doing that ever since I still keep about half my time in China half my time in the US which is just an endless opportunity 'cause there's always new stuff to do and it's also pretty enjoyable lights so that's kind of where I settled days one foot in China one foot in the US which is gets more and more more interesting every single year absolutely of course suitable also to see all the things and the differences and similarities between Howelsen Woodson the the landscaper right now that the most interesting backup tech companies probably messy before for for a few years and I guess your good spectator and also protagonist of these which is interesting so and then in the book you actually mentioned seeks Mega trends that shape than actually are s shaping China in the Chinese economy. I am looked at those make sense. Can you give us just a short as an option about Those ones will be this is a CO author author. Jonathan Mackenzie we know China's confusing and there's a lot going on. It's a big place very complicated and what we did is we sorta pointed. Look at least major economic trends happening that our long-term these. Are you know thirty forty year trends if you if you I can understand those a lot of the chaos becomes a lot more understandable and so the trends. We started to look at where things that were driving. The revenue are the cost structures of companies and out of that we we identified sort of six number one. We is urban as ation just the fact that in China reopened to the world nineteen eighty about eighty percent of the population west farms and twenty percent in this city which is usually pretty much the inverse of most developed countries I so there's just been a steady movement of people into cities which is still happening today. That creates a lot of economic drives. We also like to things like manufacturing manufacturing scale just a lot of money capital rising Chinese consumers which is something that's really become important in the last five to ten years. I digital China and then what we call brainpower behemoths which is just there's there's more and more people with advanced degrees. China's not liking us to be in nineteen ninety minutes engineers and PhD's and artists and a lot of advanced skills now so we kind of looked at those six EXC trends and that that's held up pretty well over time. This little model used a lot of most of the major companies. You see are writing one or two of those trends so so far it's held up. Its minimum four to five years so we'll see but I think it's pretty solid most of those. Things are going on for at least another decade gate if not longer and then we'll say interesting. What time do you think it will be really going on a steeler in the in in the next I mean of course the Sikhs Mega as you said that we would be going on or thirty four thirty forty years but some of them really started the banking the against inspecting the eighties so those spence that you see losing momentum and which ones are the ones that I really any moment I can get. You know it'd be nice to from your side perspective random in the ones that were easier to predict where urbanization manufacturing shrink capital just a lot of money because it's just been steadily narrowing. I mean it's literally a linear line. Just dry nineteen eighty two today and it's just a stray raid law. The ones were little more unpredictable. Were rising Chinese consumers which you know they were not really an economic factor ten years years ago. People didn't talk about Chinese consumers ten years ago. They weren't buying much even know they had income and savings well. That's changed dramatically in the last five to ten years now. It's the world's largest market for audio for gaming offline gaming cinema movies and one industry after the next day become the largest argest marketplace or in the top two so that one's sort of a late bloomer and then digital China which is one of our six is the most unpredictable acas crazy stuff happens all the time most of the China. The digital consumer stories really about consumers. I'm sure most of the digital China's story is mostly about consumers honors. that's where things are really happening. Fast Alibaba ten send social media all that that's a lot of China who turn out are almost almost entirely digital creatures. You know you can't talk about Chinese consumers without talking digital anymore. Everything happens on a smartphone. That's probably the most awesome predictable one but it's moving quick now each missing and you said at the beginning knitting these bedding posted to stress out because a steeler for many people. China is blocked by the very complex set county which is a male of many classes as you. I liking the in the book but did the digital megatrend like Internet Essa changed in China lagged in terms of society consumers would seeing now consumers is his main. Everyone knows a lot of them. That's not a big surprise. Everybody knows that they're rising in their wells. I think the part that gets under appreciated is how complicated they are. China's is arguably the world's most complicated consumer market now it is just you can look at thirty million. Chinese consumers live in caves. You can find Chinese consumers in the far west. Were you got several hundred million of them. That looked like a different country. You go to downtown Beijing. You get more billionaires in Beijing in New York City so there's a huge fragmentation and complexity to them. and it's just getting more so because you know there's a lot of them so we get a lot of anything you're. GonNa they get a lot of complexity and to you still get this big spread between very very developed market behavior like Beijing and Shanghai and you know okay that's out in the field and in the mountains and so you know it's just this hugely complicated subject in the only way you can really understand and Chinese consumers at this point. Is You have to go small. You have to study micro populations Chinese moms sports enthusiasts inland consumers DADS. You have to break it up that way and you find out people are very different YEP. He in Buca Luke Action Yields Twilight one point which I found very interesting in Sao actually people consume the consumption of the Internet sites okay to be more intense or for for Chinese especially young people compared to two west Westerners and is it something that it's still valid today. I mean they still like more time spent on the Internet on digital devices compared to the West Yeah basically I mean everyone knew that was going to be a lot of people with smartphones mark bones in China. That was pretty predictable. Seeing the same thing in India Indonesia places like that. I think what surprised people was how enthusiastic they are they just doc things faster than other countries APP mobile apps off like crazy and they they spend more time online than other consumers in other countries. They contribute more they post more. They add content more so just turns out they. Are you know some of the world's most enthusiastic netizens are Chinese. You know that wasn't necessarily predictable but it's true the other thing to keep even mind. Is You know there's a difference between regular consumers who go down to the supermarket by apples and online consumers because the online consumers effectively operate like network you know it's not just one person that person's sharing with another person sharing their interconnected and if you have three hundred million Americans or three hundred fifty million Americans. There's a certain number of connections. You'll get between them. When you have a billion Chinese consumers. It's actually exponentially financially larger so digital. China effectively operates like a network and it's very rapid very vibrant so so that part is sort of showing itself when you see a new aspect off in China. It goes for nothing to a hundred million users in two months three months now. We don't see that anywhere else that I've seen right and I thought it was interesting to see. Nowadays is a bit of a bads in the marketing world because they said these schools that the talk which they claim to be combated in like in social media space by finding because they sort of in some cases compare the metrics the users acquisition of blood from Lake that we the we we waste about a dozen the make in some ways. It's much sense because as you said I mean it's very eat steady easy to the up went up Atlanta actually they they might get Eddie began than median us so I think it very important to the seldom understanding of China and when he just something he's also that in China that he said that the phenomenon of a super APPs which is something that we didn't yet I guess seeing though in the in the West which makes me think that of course intend as technology China's evolved by looking at you know how Western companies any state companies work actual of the since it was more a I think a couple of years ago looking more in depth at the by do business business model but what I found interest with that right now recently they company like by do is not just a coping a something like a company that Google but actually innovating each way so it's waiting its own innovations as many things actually will will doesn't ever as well as always interesting to see these scandal. I mean what we'll do. They will you see on that standpoint. How does that look like right now. In China China obviously from the West and use any of combining the yeah I mean it's most people in I'd say the United States they got on the Internet by PC. You sit at home. You have your laptop your desktop. They discovered g mail than a couple years. Slater discovered youtube and they slowly adapted various tools over time that didn't happen in China. People basically joined around two thousand nine in two thousand ten only on their smartphones mostly. There were some users before that was very small and they got all these tools at once you know they went from nothing thing to. I've got a smartphone. I can do messaging. I do online video like drawing gaming so they kind of jumped in the deep end of the pool and they've only know the Internet on smartphones and the difference between a smartphone in a P. C. Is One you you work at home your office and then you leave the other one you carry with you all day long so they carry these around all day they message they take photos they watch videos all of that and one of the things that it was different early on people don't use email you send an email to someone in China. You better wait a week. 'cause permanent going to check their email. It was all about messaging so it started out with messaging with Q in that led to we chat and then from there they added payment which Allie pay in and we chat wallet and once you had messaging in and we chat take mobile payments set up that enabled you know e commerce to happen on your your phone anywhere you happen to be during your day that was the basis of the Super App and it turns out people just live on their smartphones. It becomes sort of the operating operating system for your life but we didn't see any of those three steps in the US you know people weren't living on WHATSAPP as much. Although they kind of are now they were using email they didn't adopt mobile payments because they were using credit cards which worked fine not awesome but they were functional

"Is you know, it's interesting. I mean, it's thirty years, right? And the median age of China right now is thirty eight so a significant number of Chinese were not born. One channel score was happening. And the Chinese government has been extremely successful at wiping out. Any recollection of the ideas of the movement in any recollection of actually, you know, what happened? And so there's this remarkable documentary attack man, where they show pictures of the tank man to whom you referred earlier to Beijing University students that are like what's this is the guy doing performance, art? What is this? They have no idea of those images and of the importance that those images had to their country back in the day. And so the question is if you know something wiped out, so successfully will it ever have any residents again amongst the people of China. I don't know. I think we probably will at a certain point. There has to be a reevaluation of this. But people have thought it was going to happen. A lot earlier than it has so far that hasn't happened yet. The Chinese party state has a remarkable ability to really manipulate the minds of people in China still to this day, John I wanna thank you for coming on today to talk about the thirty th anniversary of gentlemen.

"And so this is happening at the same time, you have the country opening up to western influences opening up to western ideas, and it was this marriage between significant discontent in the lower levels of society with on opening of minds among the elite among the student population. And that created the potential for real instability at the same time. You also had within the party different factions jockeying for positions one faction believed in faster economic reforms and more westernization another faction that really oppose that as well. So you had you had to basically all the raw materials for real problems going from ADA nine students start to gather an and lobby the ability together without being monitored by the party. How do they do that? I mean, are they watched over are there? How does that happen? So what was starting in in as early as eighty eight in fact, even earlier than that? But eighty eight was really the beginning is that people wanted to form organizations that were not under the control come his party because one of the issues in China was that the party controlled everything. And there was no such thing as a right to organize freedom of sociation was is not part of Chinese communist party platform on the students. Basically that was a main demand that the student unions would not be run by the party. And so in universities such as Beijing University ching hall university Nanjing university Fudan, which is another major university in Shanghai students began to have these natch. Organizations formed and have these specically democracies what they called salons where Chinese liberals were invited to speak about democratization process about freedom of association and other freedoms the US Bill of rights statue of liberty the history of democracy, and in the west, and this type of interaction between Chinese students and some Chinese liberals really intensified eighty nine and the trigger, of course, for the demonstrations was the death of party secretary by the name of who y'all bond who died in April of nineteen eighty nine and who was somewhat of a symbol for westernisers in China. He is a guy who basically came out against chopsticks. He said using a knife and fork was more efficient, but he also was very important in rehabilitating, hundreds of thousands of Chinese intellectuals who've been purged during the anti rightist campaign in the mid fifties. But also the culture of Lucien from nineteen sixty six nine hundred seventy six and. How did you have access to them? I mean, did you already knew people from when you were studying in China, did you have greater access? So. Ahead lived in Chinese dormitory for a year and a half. And so when I went into these dormitories, I kind of felt like I was home, and that I think subconsciously resonated with the people there. I mean, I would like sit on their beds and kinda hang out like I hung out in my own dorm room six or seven years before. So I was a little bit younger. I spoke pretty decent Chinese. And I just kinda realized that they were like my classmates earlier jet. I mean a later generation, but they were very more my classmates their rooms looked and I think more importantly smelled like the room. I lived in an engine university for unit half. If for me, it wasn't as exotic as it probably appeared to many other western correspondents who hadn't had that experience. When you say, they weren't later generation that students that you described earlier are actually plucked back out of countryside and given the chance to go to school where these students who had expected to go to school. Yeah. These were students generally speaking who had gone through high school. So this is just their life experiences significantly different from the life experience from their elders and describe the energy of these meetings, these early meetings on campus, it was just full of this sense of possibility. And a real search for a new set of values for their country. A lot of patriotism deep love of their country and deep desire in the sense of what direction are we gonna take? And anything is possible. That was the overriding sense. You got was optimism about what China could do and we're trying to go..

"And that's where you ended up. Yeah. I think if you think from one section to another in your career one chronology to another. It's not always immediately apparent, but certainly the style of work that I'm doing something that I always imagine myself, so being very people focused having fast paced work. That's always something. I've always stroked driven for and and it's you know, in a large way. What's happened got it? Okay. Yeah. I like that fast paced hard working person that likes giving the people. I'm sure that this podcast is going to go. Well, since you're such a good people person. But let's get into the into the early days you graduate from from boulder, right? And what happens? Yeah. So actually just to take a quick step back. I'm from Louisville Kentucky originally, so so southerner by birth. And I went to prep school and outside of Boston at the Phillips Cami end over. And that was you know, a big big step for me fourteen years old to move to tune England in so going to college versus Colorado was another big step. And when I was at the university of Colorado, I was always interested in the opportunity to study abroad. So in between my sophomore, my my Jere year. I studied abroad in Thailand in Zanzibar and Tanzania and that really set off it sort of international interest of mine and follow up that year with the summer before my senior year doing research in Malaysia on my my senior thesis it so, you know, for me coming out of college in two thousand five I was I was really focused on. On building an international career. And at the time, I had studied environmental science in political science as a double major university of Colorado's very interested in working international aid development and gotten opportunity to apply to National Science Foundation research grant to research on water management issues in western China, which is a very dry area as have many difficult challenges on with water management, and I was accepted into that program and spent the summer after graduating a university of Colorado in western China conducting field research and writing my research, and when I finished that up. I then went to Beijing to work in an internship in the fall two thousand five and while I was there. I was living in sort of this. This this neighborhood Dow pill in Beijing, which is famous for having thousands and thousands of of four. Students that the go to the school shake wa and Beijing University which are located in that area in met a bunch of folks that were Princeton kits so Princeton alum, and they told me about a program called the Princeton Asia fellowship program. And this you're really good fit this program. You know, isn't limited just Princeton students. They're also, you know, folks that can apply that haven't gone to Princeton, and it places you in jobs throughout Asia. And some of the jobs are English teaching in some of the jobs are for nonprofits in NGOs. And so I thought that was a perfect fit, and that was sort of my first real career jump applied to that program eventually getting accepted and introduced to go to Thailand of all places the program administrator time saw that I had experience studying in Thailand in there. A long standing of civil ship position in then cock are working for the World Conservation Union, which was doing a vital conservation of throughout the southern coast Thailand. And so you know, that launched a series of steps in my career that I could not have initially anticipated. But were definitely in line with at the time was my interest in environmental conservation in international aid development. So I'm happy to explain a little bit more detail. What happened from that point on?.

"Data. I'm assuming flying back, especially to do the pay per view ako. It's very good to see you. Right. What you what fee spotted? So you have a couple of stories two of them actually on labor issues in the first one is is is from China, this pose in the Japan Times. Of course, the store like this wouldn't necessarily get published in a Chinese print media, essentially what's been happening is that in the past days, quite a lot of young Chinese labor. Activists have started to go missing been arrested. And so on and the article she lays out that this is a group of people. That had tried to help organize a labor union trade union, rather. And you might think. Whoa. Scholley China is a communist country should allow trade unions. I'm you'd be surprised that in fact, no, there are trade unions. But of course, controlled by by the party, indeed didn't really necessarily encourage dissent or wanting to change session notice in which case one one does what on earth these labor activists were doing if I organizing this union. Yeah. I mean, this is this is sort of a a a small, quote, a growing movement in China, which is sort of left wing radical students, which are trying to organiz groups in support of workers who perhaps have their rights trampled upon but also other issues for environment, gender equality and so on. So it's kind of like progressive left wing activism seems to have sort of riled up the party a little bit. And and they've decided to to send a message and crackdown on it. How much is this? Actually going to have a chilling effect on people who wished to join to create unions. I I think I think it will. I mean that that's sort of a common tool, I suppose that the Chinese communist party uses a stew sort of crackdown. Very hard on those people who crossed the line to deter future people from from doing the same thing that this this article is highlighted, in fact, is the fact that. Other countries other institutions in different places are at liberty to cut tight is Chinese institutions if they suit if if they decide to treat their that people undemocratically now this this is happened in this case. I mean, this is a Chinese universities becoming let's say most strictly under the control of of the party, and this is led to a couple of western institutions to cut ties. Most recently Cornell who had a tie up with Woodrum in university in Beijing cut ties. But also, let's say Beijing University has also got a new boss who was a former security chief, and again, lots of western institutions are questioning about their links with Chinese universities. Interesting. So many students go from China to the universities outside of of the country. They must see a whole different system. Them going along and experience freedoms, which they would only dream of in in in China. What does Chinese students do in that situation? When they go away. They have a taste of freedom. And then they go back. Well, there's lots of different stories. I guess some people not very impressed with with the west, and especially how universities function being acquired dysfunctional. But I think what what what happens to love people is is indeed, especially those who who remain in Cadena is is that you know, obviously in China. There are limits on on what you can and cannot say what can and cannot be published and so on and especially for young people, you really, you know, trying to push the boundaries here. What what could be done, but you know, some of them, of course, will end up getting arrested in getting in trouble for this..

"Tragic irony of the crisis is that the USA Europe could have avoided it but failed to listen to their own sermons regarding financial management, the rich countries had repeatedly preached the virtues of keeping Connie's and the banking sector under control the rich countries were aware of just how costly financial crises were they'd seen poorer countries suffer when things went wrong. They'd seen those territory that follows a bailout from the international community. However, the politicians and experts will lulled into complacency but years apparently benign growth and sadly decided to ignore their own sermons. Martin wolf the chief economics commentator at the financial times explains. How this meant well richer countries crashed developing countries came into the economic ascendancy since the crisis, the growth of the developed countries in aggregate has been very very modest. It will be wrong to say it was a lost decayed for the developed world as a whole. But it's certainly the worst decayed since the thirties and the output per head of most developed countries has barely risen since two thousand and seven maybe a few percent, but not much more. There are some relative successes like Germany among the big developed countries. But quite a few that have shrunk greatly. So Dave stagnated. Meanwhile, the economies of China, India, a few others, but those are the most. Important cases have grown absolutely enormously. How did some Asian countries managed to succeed when a large proportion of the global economy was in meltdown? Kishan Mahbubani was dean of the new school of public policy at the university of Singapore. He says it was a case of inoculation issue went through his own trauma. Almost exactly ten years earlier in nineteen ninety seven Asian financial crisis. And that was a searing experience for many Asian countries. And the big lesson they learned from that is be very, very careful. Make sure you're not too highly indebted that you make sure the yourself for lion. And you don't ever have to depend on next central rescue package to save you. And so as a result of that crisis the level of debt in most Asian countries went down, and they were very prudent and in the economic management, and that's why it's actually quite stunning. How most of the Asian countries except perhaps for South Korea sailed through the global financial crisis quite well. China rebounded to over nine percent growth within a year while the advanced economies still have not return to growth levels. They experienced before the crisis. What was China secret?

"Is your undocumented anchorman thrilled to be here. It only happens once every ten years, but sometimes when I'm talking to a gas some so enthralled by what they're saying. I forget to look at the clock. So I ended my question just in time for the break at the bottom of the hour to Heather McDonald? And I'm glad she decided to stay on the line transfer it and Heather in case you forgot, and I was asking whether this diversity stick is just stick or whether they mean what they say. I when somebody says, not all these white men, so bad or whatever. And they say I'm physically threatened by that your words of physical threat to me is that sincere or is it just. Stick. I wish it were schtick. But I think they're absolutely sincere because there is such an ego thrill a thrill of victimhood in believing that they're at lethal threat. You know students at Brown University minority students occupied the provost office two years ago and demanded exemption from studying for exams and showing up at class on time because they said they were working so hard to stay alive at Brown at Yale. When when hundreds of students mobbed a universally respected sociologists for three hours, cursing at him screaming at him, one of the the cries that issued from this. This band of harpies was ward dying. The most privileged position, and you can see this again transferred into the world at large, which is I think the best test to see whether it's just a stick forgetting attention on college when Google last August, not this one, but the one before fire James damore, a young computer engineer who had dared to challenge the feminist orthodoxy at Google by suggesting that perhaps a reason for the fact that Google is not fifty fifty male female is not rampant sexism, but the fact that on average males and females have different job predilections males on average gravitate towards abstract work, females human work. He was fired and the Google CEO adopted for Begum, the bathos drenched language of academic victimology saying that Google employees were hurting that he had caused harm. So this. This is a very real world effect that they actually believe it. And the the scary thing is not only your corporations being transformed. By this academic victimology as one Google employees anonymously posted on one of the Google chat. Rooms that the human relations department at Google is basically an outpost of women's studies and black studies. The after the Google firing the National Labor Relations board and associate general counsel upheld Google on the ground that by James damore writing a rational, sac based argument here engaged in sexual harassment discrimination and made the employees feel at risk and therefore could rightly be fired this. This puts academic science at risk any any evolutionary biologist any psychologist any economist who studies the very real differences between males and females and writes about it. Is now at risk for his job. And so you you have to be extraordinarily strong willed to stand up to it. And as we know most people these your option is just to keep your head down not for quiet life. The the the the situation you mentioned at the most elite university in the most powerful nation on earth where these people are surrounding someone for three hours, and they're bleeding that they're the victims in fact, increasingly they're like, hey, totalitarian mob hunting down new victims. And with an insatiable need for new victims. It's disgusting. It's not only such a betrayal of our values of civility something that is leading us. I think very ineluctably towards civil war if not race war, but it's also for me profoundly tragic because university not only should be a bastion of free thought. But more importantly, it is the guardian of our civilization it the faculty there have the unparalleled privilege of curated the greatest works of human imagination and thought, and and they should be down on their knees before these works and teaching students to understand them with joy and gratitude. And instead these faculty members to pitch late. Could the mob and and inevitably denounce their own their own heritage as racist and sexist. They're betraying their mission. And we stopped teaching these works they die. And and it's on us. No. And you see that that that it's easy to see. That it will effectively be like the message potato him desert one day that you will have some vague memory that the great ziggurat of is buried below the sand somewhere, but but on the surface the memory of it will have been lost. Because there isn't this. What's really worrying when this business started real? You know, it's it's just Ray studies feminist studies transgender studies who cares then it seeps out into the real world. And for example, you know, the FAA now wants diversity taken into account when you're hiring air, traffic, controllers and pilots and things so it it's it's beyond the universe is added. Actually, maybe that plane stout dropping from the skies. If this insane ideology. Infects every part of life. Well, it already is. And you should worry when you're wheeled into the operating room in the ER because medical schools are now telling admissions committees that they should value diversity over student credentials. The National Science Foundation is pumping hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars into forcing science departments laboratories into hiring by race and gender instead of technological acumen. The the ideas that any any engineering department and the computer science department that is not exquisitely proportional to the various irrelevant demographic groups that were obsessed with today is by definition, again, a product of racism, and sexism, and and there we have the NSF studying believe it or not they have gender studies. Professors doing massive studies of intersection -ality in the stem. Fields intersection. Of course is the latest academic jargon to try and express. The absolute awfulness of America. And so and so is now under threat and Trump rightly wants to level the playing field with China. The best thing he could do is airlift several cargoes of of gender feminists and drop them on Beijing University because as long as China remains ruthlessly meritocratic. Yeah. Obsessive diversity they are going to gain the the competitive technological edge. No. And it's very interesting that that that it will be the last countries on earth to sign onto this madness. That will have the best sheltered surviving it. Thank you. Thank you very much for that. Have. It's always great to hear you talk on this topic because you ahead of the game on this thing at a time. When too many people just thought it was a joke and wrote and thought all he had to do is make jokes about political correctness. It was a so obviously laughable it would just go away. And as you said these diversity bureaucracies at universities, then malign reach has spread far beyond the campus. The new book is called the diversity delusion. It is been great to have Heather McDonald on the show from the Manhattan incident. Thanks, thanks for joining us. Heather this is the Rush Limbaugh show Mark Stein sitting in for rush. Don't forget.

"It only happens once every ten years, but sometimes when I'm talking to a gas some so enthralled by what they saying. I forget to look at the clock. So I ended my question just in time for the break at the bottom of the hour to Heather McDonald? And I'm glad she decided to stay on the line Toronto at and Heather in case you've forgotten. I was asking whether this diversity stick is just stick or whether they mean what they say. I when somebody says, not all these white men, so bad or whatever. And they say I'm physically threatened by that your words of physical threat to me is that sincere or is it just stick? I wish it were schtick. But I think they're absolutely sincere because there is such an ego thrill a thrill of victimhood in believing that they're at lethal threat. You know students at Brown University minority students occupied the provost office two years ago and demanded exemption from. Studying for exams and showing up at class on time. Because they said they were working so hard to stay alive at Brown at Yale. When when hundreds of students mobbed a universally respected sociologists for three hours, cursing at him screaming at him, one of the the cries that issued from this. This band of harpies was ward dying this the most privileged position, and you can see this again transferred into the world at large, which is I think the best test to see whether it's just a stick forgetting attention. I college when Google last August, not this one, but the one before fire James damore, a young computer engineer who had dared to challenge the feminist orthodoxy at Google by suggesting that perhaps a reason for the fact that Google is not fifty fifty male female is not rampant sex. Schism, but the fact that on average males and females have different job predilections males on average gravitate towards abstract work, females human work. He was fired and the Google CEO adopted for Begum. The bathos drenched language of academic victimology sang that Google employees were hurting that he had caused harm. So this is a very real world effect that they actually believe it. And the the scary thing is not only corporations being transformed. By this academic victimology as one Google employees anonymously posted on one of the Google chat. Rooms that the human relations department at Google is basically an outpost of women's studies and black studies the after the Google firing the National Labor Relations board and associate general counsel upheld Google on the ground that by Jay. James damore writing a rational, sac based argument, he had engaged in sexual harassment discrimination and made the employees feel at risk and therefore could rightly be fired this. This puts academic science at risk any any evolutionary biologist any psychologist any economist who studies the very real differences between males and females and writes about it is now at risk for his job. And so you you have to be extraordinarily strong willed to stand up to it. And as we know most people these your passion is just to keep your head down not for quiet life. The the the the situation you mentioned at the most elite university in the most powerful nation on earth where these people are surrounding someone for three hours, and they're bleating that they're the victims in fact, increasingly they're like, hey, totalitarian mob hunting. Down new victims and with an insatiable need for new victims. It's disgusting. It's not only such a betrayal of our values of civility something that is leading us. I think very ineluctably towards civil war if not race war, but it's also for me profoundly tragic because a university not only should be a bastion of free thought. But more importantly, it is the guardian of our civilization it the faculty there have the unparalleled privilege of curated the greatest works of human imagination and thought, and and they should be down on their knees before these works and teaching students to understand them with joy and gratitude. And instead these faculty members capitulate. Could the mob and and inevitably denounce their own their own heritage as racist and sexist. They're betraying their mission. And we stopped teaching these works they die. And and it's on us. No. And you see that that that it's easy to see. That it will effectively be like the potato desert one day that you will have some vague memory that the great ziggurat of is buried below the sand somewhere, but but up on the surface, the memory of it will have been lost. Because there isn't this. What's really worrying when this business started real? You know, it's it's just Ray studies feminist studies transgender studies who cares then it seeps out into the real world. And for example, you know, the FAA now wants diversity taken into account when you're hiring air, traffic, controllers and pilots and things so it it's it's beyond the universe is added. Actually, maybe that plane stout dropping from the skies. If this insane ideology. Infects every part of life. Well, it already is. And you should worry when you're wheeled into the operating room in the ER because medical schools are now telling admissions committees that they should value diversity over student credentials. The National Science Foundation is pumping hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars into forcing science departments laboratories into hiring by race gender instead of technological acumen. The the ideas that any any engineering department and the computer science department that is not exquisitely proportional to the various irrelevant demographic groups that were obsessed with today is by definition, again, a product of racism, and sexism, and and there we have the NSF studying believe it or not they have gender studies. Professors doing massive studies of intersection -ality in the stem. Fields intersection of coordinates. The latest academic jargon to try and express. The absolute awfulness of America. And so scientists is now under threat and Trump rightly wants to level the playing field with China. The best thing he could do is air lift several cargoes of of gender feminists and drop them on Beijing University because as long as China remains ruthlessly meritocratic. And we're obsessed with diversity. They are going to gain the the competitive technological edge. No. And it's very interesting that that that it will be the last countries on earth. To sign onto this madness that we'll have the best sheltered surviving. It. Thank you. Thank you very much for that. Have. It's always great to hear you talk on this topic because you ahead of the game on this thing at a time.

"That was a still a long story short. Right. Were you born in China? I was born in Beijing a lot of time. Okay. Okay. I'm just asking me because I lived in China for thirteen years. Six years, my listeners know, but I have six years in Beijing and seven years in Shanghai. And I, I studied Chinese at Beijing University, and I used to live in the would Alcoa area or see San. I graduated from university. Okay. We'll always teeth with teaching. He doesn't. People don't know is is China. 'cause ting while university the MIT of China, it is arguably the best university in China in competition with Beijing University. Yeah. Has when people talk in Tiny's Beijing University always go. I of course it's a rivalry Santa adds. A fun is. It is definitely a reverie. I wanna get into a last dose and a little bit. But you said because this is very interesting. The history aspect of this China opened up in. Was it seventy six or seventy? Nine seventy eight seventy eight. I'm sorry. So seventy eight. And then you said you were part of the first batches of Chinese exchange students over to the US. What was that like coming over from China to the United States and eighty four. And actually work on farm during the culture of allusion and all of a sudden university resumed. So I was eating lucky enough. Actually. I was still a labor at that time in village to the national examined, got accepted to Gino high university. So it's a really lucky I remember when we were taking a calculus class one day in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine and because you know classrooms very quiet, but then a Rio turned out really loud. I with no people kind of surprised and turn around their hands and the radio is reporting that China is setting up diplomatic relations with the United States, and there was a loud round off of folks during us. So that was really something. And of course one year later nineteen eighty China star to have a grad students exchange graduate students. Through the United States where if you because of the first class off the undergrad won't graduate until eighty two. So I was that I ever graduated and earned demise scholarship to study in the US. Well, while that's in mazing, that's an amazing story because I really don't know if people can grasp the history of China. You are a China pioneer for the most part to go to the states to get education. They're lucky. Custom dot time, except they're few that their family could sponsor themselves because was. So called a socialist system matching election afford to study in the US the country, which is so poor. So we'll other only way out without a family or sponsorships. It's through government. So I was actually sponsored by the Chinese government at that time student. That's that. Actually the code is about what about them. Five hundred eighty ish a year at that time. So I was. I guess a lucky enough right on it. The country more than a billion. Right, right. Out of a billion. You're into the US in just another question about this, and how was the you took? Was it at that time testing into ching? HUA was, was it the Dow at that time as well? What was that. That was the first call the first national exam after the culture of the university stopped during the culture of Lucien by the word. And so basically, I another thing is termi into may be the most senior class offer self engineers in China. Because of before then there was no computer science departments and after the culture of Lucien, there's a computer science department, and I was the first. 'cause Hideyuki up your studies if you were a laborer on affirmative village to get such a high Mark in the Goco and then get into the best universities in in China, and how does how was that? How did you maintain this study to an address. First of all, I guess, are. Lucky enough. But Secondly, when I was in middle school high school at that time, even though it's during the contribution, you know, people don't really study much cassava I, I was one of the few. Really put my heart into studies because. Has something to do with you if you've been to into China. Right are so those nationalists who lost the civil war. And turned out to my grandfather was on the run side. I'm living in Taiwan right now. Yeah..
