...But of these sophisms and elenchs of merchandise I skill not...
Milton, Areopagitica

Except he had found the
standing sea-rock that even this last
Temptation breaks on; quieter than death but lovelier; peace
that quiets the desire even of praising it.

Jeffers, Meditation On Saviors



Ching-chong good thing ding-dong:

...the Chinese tycoon Chen Guangbiao made international headlines by publicly announcing his ambitions to buy the New York Times and later the Wall Street Journal. In a TV interview he explained that he would be an ideal newspaper magnate because “I am very good at working with Jews”—who, he said, controlled the media.

Yet Chen presumably, like the majority of Chinese, has few concrete ideas about the reality of Jewish history or practices.

Announcing your intention to write something is almost a guarantee you won't. But.
History and practices.
To get at this you need a take on what was called "The Opium War", after it was over. Why it happened, how it was resolved, and the outcome.
The short version is the Sassoon family, Jewish textile merchants taking advantage of the brutal domination of India by Britain, with its consequently available near-slave labor, minimal overhead etc. got into the wide-open Asian opium trade, and ended up with an exclusive franchise in China. Which was at the time a sort of dystopic 3rd-worldy kind of place.
The Sassoons were making big money on the addiction process, that ultimate retail/consumer hook, steadily expanding their market, and running the whole enterprise in-house.
Then some heroic Chinese, some military figures centrally, disgusted at what they saw happening, began agitating against the damage widespread opium addiction was causing to their society and their people.
They threw a bunch of opium in the Yangtze, broke up the candy stores, ran dealers out etc.
The Sassoons, because of their financial connections in and on the British government, the biggest empire in the world at the time, got the British navy to invade China and whip the asses of the reformers, who fought back, were defeated by a far superior military, and by the terms of surrender were forced by the British to repay the Sassoon organization for lost business and all the opium they threw in the river. Revenge and then some.
At the end of the conflict, the Sassoons had a guaranteed lock on the opium business in China.
That's never stopped. Mickey Cohen, Meyer Lansky, 20th century bosses of the world drug trade. Their heirs have not been disinherited.
Hoover never made move one on Jewish gangsters, as an anti-organized crime warrior he was exclusively concerned with the Italian Mafia. Probably because Lansky's mob, the "Kosher Nostra", equally organized, equally criminal, equally if not more powerful, had blackmail-ready proof of his sexual ambiguity. 8x10 glossies of Edgar in a house dress and lipstick or something.
That's who's got the global illegal drug market lock today. And I'm convinced, without any hard evidence, that that's why the US/NATO is in Afghanistan, the world's number one producer of opium, which just harvested its largest crop ever, under military occupation. An otherwise inexplicable fact.
Because, as Mr. Chen Guangbiao says, the Jews run America. And the media. And the world's illegal drug industry.
