BEIJING – A mad philosopher once prophesied (it was Nietzsche, if you must know): ‘History repeats itself’. He called it the “ewige Wiederkehr” (the eternal Return). In 2015, just like back in the 1890s, the Western powers and Japan, once again, arrogantly decided over the faith of China (only this time, Russia, itself being a victim of a Western plot, wasn’t invited to the party). Viewed from this angle, China’s recent “meddling into the East and South China Seas” was just a Western pretext, or idle excuse, for going at it again: The Powers teaching ‘Evil China’ a lesson in imperialism. They would have come up with a reason for containment and terror anyway. And because history repeats itself, it gets more comical and absurd each time: At the current G7 summit in Germany in June 2015, our so-called “world leaders” (with Japan gratefully invited to play the part of the “civilized Asians”) openly announced, planetary and for all of us to witness live on TV and in the media of matter, that they will punish China for her daring to disrupt the current world order. Just like that. And who are you going to call, Beijing? Nobody!
