The nature of man, intelligence, society and human civilization
This is an excerpt from my Oct. 3, 2020 article To end epidemic from the root of stopping virus-production by curing the diseases in civilization. http://www.kwcg.ca/bbs/home.php?mod=space&uid=61910&do=blog&id=14947
The understanding on human nature will help us understand the reasons why that human society is so difficult for governing.
A skin wrapping 206 bones formed human body, many such body forms so called human society. The bodies succeed appear struggling for living in a certain period to form so called history with breeds a so called civilization. The bodies are self-proclaimed as higher animal as human being with superior intelligence than that of lower animals, however, in reality, they act more barbaric than that of lower animals in endless provoking for wars and endlessly stirring social unrest to live in the way of the Law of Jungle in far from higher animals should be.
Human‘s specific behavior is signaled by the reasoning result of specific population of brain cells. Due to the existence of brain defects, it is not all people who are in human feature are in human nature. Even if for those quality normal people, the lifelong selfish instinct is the essential driver for seeking survival; without selfish instinct driven people social activities will be no human society. So that people’s selfish instinct is a double-edged sword in decisively affecting the governance of human society.
The two players' board game Go is originated in China over 3000 years ago. The mechanism of computer program AlphaGo beats human top professional Go player revealed the work mechanism of human brain; which is the acquired knowledge as reference in supporting brain reasoning for signaling physical behaving. Views in this way, humans are acting as a kind of Robot in driving by acquired knowledge as software driver. The wrongful knowledge will drive people wrongful behaving; and the West advocated philosophies and ideologies are just highly toxic in playing such wrongful roles without collective concern.
Dunning-Kruger Effect shows that low-ability people wrongfully self-estimated as more superior and capable than others did, without reasoning function for bad consequence, so that they are without anything for worrying about, and thus make them over active to occupy leading position socially. British philosopher Bertrand Russell (1872 – 1970) who indicates that: “One of the painful things about our time is that those who feel certainty are stupid, and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision.” It is just the doubt and indecision of rational people paved the way for irrational people.
It is just due to the complexity of human nature and the complexity of crowd psychology, when people grouping, it will naturally pave a boulevard for low quality people easily occupying the leading position; so that any good humanized political designs or humanized thoughts will be inevitably mis-used by low quality people for misdeeds by taking wrong as right. This is the reason of the power of State Apparatus is often used for exerting the beastly mentality of some individual. This is the root cause that the West once stays in long Dark Ages and world has been in forced towards increasingly unlivable with manmade large amount nuclear weapons for times destruction of the world.
The hope for human beings are able to live a humanized way is to dump liberal democracy into garbage bin to block the way of low quality people kidnapping social governance, by proper humanized people performing social governance as that of China doing, not elect, but select outstanding entrepreneurs and scholars as lawmaker. The top leadership is the Politburo of 7 members who have practically proved in political ability and personal quality, without collective consensus; no one freely talks opinions at will.
Without vaccination and herd immunity, China has quickly contained epidemic; now works hard for the global supply of life necessaries and as engine drives world economy. However, in the West, the epidemic did not be contained but gets worse and worse in negatively hoping for vaccination and herd immunity. Explore the reason, actually, it is not virus in killing people, but the flawed civilization in killing people.
The flawed civilization fools people addicted in wrongful believes without sense for epidemic protection. in faced with increasingly infection and death of covid-19; for fighting against the policies of government, for religious beliefs, for the holy elections, for the sake of democracy and freedom, there great many people are still gathering to accelerate the spread of the virus. Many people even think that the virus does not exist at all.
The flawed civilization bred liberal democray without quality control on the players to have made government in the dysfunction state under the kidnapping of low quality politicians. The most of politicians are lack a ability with a brain that cannot perform humanized reasoning for a rational judgment to conduct rational practice. This is why that those politicians once elected, immediately to look for attacking from oppostion parties and foreigh coutries. In such a childish political system, government cannot exert humanized governing role; because of humanized rational politicians cannot play their humanized rational role.
The flawed civilization bred philosophy Reductionism guided Western medicine cultured medical experts and health officials addicted in the double blind clinic trial and view that cannot make double blind clinic trial of the natural medicinals of Traditional Chinese Medicine - TCM as unscientific to reject the use. But in China, dialectic philosophy Daoism guided TCM integrating Western Medicine massively cured patients quickly in fewer complications.
The complex complications with various fatal symptoms of coid-19 survivors show that virus’ infection causes multi-lesions on human body. The multi-lesions need the treatment in multi-targeted medications; and multi-combined natural medicinals of TCM are the best medication, but the doctors in Western medicine based on philosopy Reductionism from flawed civilization treats patients by single synthetic chemical making patients deaths and fatal sequelae. They used treatment of convalescent plasma in causing virus mutation.
Bellow is the cause for the radical difference in the quality of people and social governance between China and the West and why does European-based civilization not belong to human beings of qualified higher animal.
The original geographic integrity without geographical barrier made China united dozens of ethnic groups together as one country from the time that can be called as nation since 2070 BC Xia Dynasty, though, once experienced times replacement in royal family, but, there were no long wars until 771 BC. Because of the enfeoffment system continues to enfeoff royal land as enfeoffment states with independent economy, the imperial power declined and lost control on more than 100 enfeoffment states into 550 years of wars.
221BC, China reunited as Qin Dynasty. The tragic life of 550 years of wars enlightened social governance in Ministries, Provinces and Counties by selecting learned quality people as officials to have formed Technocratic Democracy actually, and which is the root reason that in today's China, the lawmakers are the outstanding entrepreneurs and scholars. The top leadership is the Politburo of 7 members who have practically proved in political ability and personal quality, without collective consensus; no one freely talks opinions at will. This time anti-pandemic Covid-19, it is a team of top medical experts in taking full charge, the officials of all level work as assistants only. Any anti-pandemic suggestions from the medical team will be implemented immediately.
The tragic life of 550 years of wars enlightened that it is not all people in human feature are in human nature, some are in beast instinct and ideologies in decisively affecting human nature; so that Emperor Qin ordered to have burnt civil books and banned private schooling. In 134 BC Han Dynasty, Emperor issued an edict to solicit governing strategies to have adopted suggestion: Dismiss all schools of thought and only respects Confucianism; while establishes Royal University - once reached 30 thousands of people as teaching for reserve officials and Think Tank.
Since then, the Confucianism was taken as only moral guidance, while strictly suppressing other ideologies under the conduction of the successive government of China. This is the reason that today's government of China strictly controls ideologies, which was from bloody lessons of 550 years endless wars. Because of the toxic ideologies cause social unrest; and the war provokers were often provoking wars by misleading ideologies.
The history of China and the West both show that once society loses control, the greedy nature of mankind will drive people to plunder and kill. In this point, the greedy nature of people is the same, whether it is Easterner or Westerner. The key is at that recognizes such nature and properly control to avoid its harm. In this point, China is rational, the West is irrational.
The founder of Confucianism was Confucius (551– 479 BC) who lived just in the middle of the period of China in endless wars. Faced with chaotic society; as a man with unordinary humanized reasoning function; he struggled to build social order by preaching people that the son obeys the father, the wife obeys the husband; the minister obeys the Duke, the young people should respect and take care for elderly, everyone must respect on social morality and respect on own promise in the social activities, and do not do unto others what you would not have them do unto you. When three people go together, always there is one for learning some good qualities, while the bad one will teach what requires correction in self; and so on.
Gradually, China has purposeful developed leading philosophy and leading ideology; and by which settled down the complex relationships between the major social existences – man, nature, society and mind in 2000 years ago.
By dialectical philosophy Daoism settled the relationship between man and nature; the moral guidance Confucianism settled the relationship between man and man; the legal system Legalism settled the relationship between man and society. Later, by government specially sent people to invite Buddhism from India comforted the relationship between man and mind. Thus, the quality people under quality social governance created quality wealthy life and developed as a global supplier of the life necessaries through old Silk Road since 2000 years ago.
The Confucianism cultured people in the quality of pursuing social order and harmony. People are respecting the elderly and filial parents in the tendency help each other with the quality of collectivism in the sense of self-discipline for protecting the collective interests. Because, the proper cultured intelligence tell them that only collective interests guaranteed at first, and then the personal interests can be guaranteed also. So, we may say that the Confucianism-educated people of Chinese pay attention to protect the macro-interests of society.
Since ancient time, in Asia, the neighboring countries were deeply affected by the culture of China; so that in Asia, surrounds China, the long term peaceful life cultured people in the tendency help each other. There many Asian countries were using the character of China. Even there foreigners were working as officials in China through Imperial Examination, which civilized a peaceful cluster in Far East Asia with Confucian culture.
The culture of China cultured the people of neighboring countries in high quality with dialectical thinking; so that they are able to share the same value with the people of China to be called as Asian Values; which is the foundation of Asian countries are the best players in epidemic covid-19 control. The high degree of self-discipline of people is the key to win victory over the virus.
Thanks Enlightenment thinkers of China for their rational thoughts; so that the people of China and the people of neighboring countries are able to live in long peaceful life; I call China based civilization as Eastern Collectivistic Civilization with a circle of Asian Values of Collectivism.
Here is a social value of the Asian Values of Collectivism.
Mar. 31, 2020, Reuters <From zero to hero: Italy's Chinese help beat coronavirus> reports that in the storm of infection and death sweeping Italy, 50,000 ethnic Chinese who live in the town of Prato were zero infection. In Italy, the most of Chinese people wear masks when they go out since the pandemic started; also other reports said that Chinese people are no longer seen in the public entertainment venues since the start of the pandemic. Please remember, this happened in the democratic governed Italy without the pressure of dictatorship but in the state of freedom as free as that of herding cats.
No one will doubt that, if there were no China's workers, there would be no Western and Atlantic Railroad of the United States and Pacific Railway of Canada. Sep. 20, 2015, article Israel to bring in 20,000 Chinese construction workers said that the work-speed of China's worker is 50% higher than that of others.
Some people say that the others are in destroying the world in everywhere, but the people of China are in rebuilding them in everywhere. Nowadays, only the Confucianism cultured people of China with Asian values are able to finish larger construction projects timely.
This is the practical value of the Asian Values of Collectivism contributes to the social reality.
In the poorest time 1950s of the early days of the establishment of the People’s Republic of China after second Sino-Japanese War 1937- 1945 and civil war (1945-1949), in the Korean War (1950-1953), the army of China with backward weapons defeated the "United Nations Army" of 16 national armies and 5 national medical forces led by the United States and forced U.S. to have signed armistice agreement. In Indian War (1960), the army of China defeated Indian army as a Westerner described as that of driving a herd of buffaloes.
The won of the wars of China was from the high quality intelligence of people. Once the wars start, the soldiers of China will always keep in a sober state and will be able to fight properly, even independently, while the soldiers of other countries will be fear and lose their sober without clear mind for proper fighting. The high quality intelligence made the combat effectiveness of a single Chinese soldier exceed dozens or hundreds of foreign soldiers.
The facts that China, with backward weapons, defeated the well-equipped United Nations Army and later Indian army that once army-equipped by many western countries firmly proved that, for winning a war, the advanced weapons are not the decisive factor; without high-quality people control, they are a pile of rubbish; and their soldiers will be fear to flee as that of the herd of buffaloes.
This is the practical value of the Asian Values of Collectivism contributes to the social reality.
The collectivistic quality of people is the basis for China's high social productivity and promotes rapid economic development.
As my view, Human beings are the product of the natural environment, and it is the natural environment in determining the development of human intelligence.
In Europe, the Ocean waters segmented land as many pieces to constitute many ethnic based nations with own cultural circle; while too many nations were unable to avoid wars.
The ethnic based nature made European nations in persistence of own respective interests and self-belief or nationalism, which caused various relatively independent philosophies and ideologies without available of leading philosophy and leading moral guidance for settling the relationship between key social existences; so that the major social existences in the state of chaos.
The mess in the relationship between social existences caused the society ungovernable, due to the contradictions and conflicts between various social elements; such as, the bloody conflict between the religions and between different ethnic groups.
The difficulties of life from long wars of Dark Ages of killing and looting made people in the state of constantly fears of life threats and vigilance for self-protection and strong possessive desire for survival, which cultured people in the quality of selfishness with only concern self-interest without sense of collective interest in the tendency of self-help, less sense for helping others and less sense for protecting collective interest; which have promoted the formation of a Europe-based self-protective egoist civilization. I call such a Europe based civilization as Western Individualistic Civilization.
In contrast with Eastern Collectivistic Civilization cultured people are able to guarantee individual interest by guaranteed collective interests at first; in the countries of Western Individualistic Civilization; the individual interests of individualistic people are loss with the collective interests together.
1994, in the book <Asian values and the United States: how much conflict>, the author David Hitchcock introduced a survey on the societal values and which revealed the radical difference in the quality of people between China and the West; which also proved the existence of the Collectivistic Civilization and Individualistic Civilization.
Asian respondents are:
 orderly society;  societal harmony;  accountability of public officials;  open to new ideas;  freedom of expression;  respect for authority.
American respondents are:
 freedom of expression;  personal freedom;  rights of the individual;  open debate;  thinking for oneself;  accountability of public officials.
The individualistic quality of people of the West are in dooming own home place and without sense for caring about future. As you see, the liberal democracy actually is a casino for the low quality people freely exerting their mad mentality; this is the reason of those democratic politicians who are with the only talent is for looking for attacking in between opposite parties and foreign countries without human brain cells for thinking about how to help own people live a better life.
In some countries, for the failure in the anti-epidemic control, the Western Individualistic Civilization made society into ungovernable state is the main cause.
In Western countries, because of, either has no rational thoughts available as reference, either the politicians have no ability for judging the bad consequence for what they are going to do, but have to blindly follow the idea of those so called thinkers from so called Think Tanks; actually, if we carefully review the lessons in the past, it is just those so called thinkers in misleading those low quality politicians to recklessly harm human world. As my view, the so called Think Tanks are exactly the jars in fermenting highly toxic social poisons.
The cause of some Western thinkers evolved as social evil promoters is stemmed from their brain to be filled with the stuff of flawed civilization. Because they have been making living by chewing the cultural garbage of history, absorb too much toxins, are obsessed with the past, and unable to think about the future. The most of them are social gabage in harming human society by wasting human food to excrete feces of wild dog.
The West has prided for the richness of thoughts, but, they never reflected their social effect good or bad. The varieties of philosophies and ideologies like a botanical garden, though it is rich in species, but it is mixed with highly toxic weeds. Such as, Hegel’s philosophical thought has been highly respected and played far-reaching influence. But, if you look closely at Hegel’s philosophy, such as, advocates the rationality for the wars have contributed greatly to the barbaric play of the West.
Besides Hegel’s philosophy, if you look at other philosophies and ideologies, the most of them are the actual evil source in advocating the rationality for the wars, in advocating the rationality of fighting against government and in advocating the rationality of putting personal interest on the top of national interest, and more, which are actually in playing the role in messing society ungovernable.
The rational leaders of China not only strictly controls such social scumbags in today, but also even buried them alive in 2000 years ago. According to Book Burning of Wikipedia that was last edited on 21 October 2020.
“In 213 BCE Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty, ordered the Burning of books and burying of scholars and in 210 BCE he ordered the live burial of 460 Confucian scholars in order to stay on his throne. Some of these books were written in Shang Xiang, a superior school founded in 2208 BCE. The event caused the loss of many philosophical treatises of the Hundred Schools of Thought. Treatises which advocated the official philosophy of the government ("legalism") survived.”
Here, in my view, the reason that Qin Shi Huang burnt books and buried alive of those scholars was because of they were deadly advocate the restoration of the Enfeoffment System of former Zhou Dynasty without care about that caused 550 years of wars; and their practice has caused the armed riots in some areas for returning old system. Suppose that Qin Shi Huang had followed the ideas of those scholars, and then China would had returned the chaotic wars as that of Dark Ages in Europe, because that the economically independent state from Enfeoffment System will inevitably produce military power to provoke wars endlessly.
The writer of the Book Burning of Wikipedia showed deep sorry for the loss of books that were written in a superior school founded in 2208 BCE with many philosophical treatises of the Hundred Schools of Thought. But, in reality, those thought did not help the people of China from avoiding tragic life of 550 years of wars; which is a perfect proof of those thought is useless, besides fooled 460 Confucian scholars as social gabage to insist to return old Enfeoffment System that once caused 550 years of wars and thus they were beried alive as social garbage.
In the current human society, those who advocate freedom of speech, those who advocate human rights, those who advocate free democracy, and those who specifically seek targets for ideological attacks, are all this kind of professionals who chew historical garbage and then use ignorance to disrupt the governance of the real society. Such people are the public nuisance in human society.
Thanks properly humanized Qin Shi Huang for having a strategic vision of civilization to have burnt the books in toxic ideologies and buried alive of trash scholars; thereby paved a foundation for China to avoid wars; and thereby avoided the people of China to live in the inhuman war life as that of the Europeans who were ruled by the mixture of nobles, religions, knights......
The fact shows that the people of China are good at summing up experience, inheriting and promoting good things, while timely discards bad things.
In comparison, in the West, on the contrary, they specialize in picking up rubbish as treasure and promoting it everywhere. The people in this quality have no brain cells to learn from suffered tragedies, so that they insisted walking on an wrong path.
The sorrow of Western Individualistic Civilization, lies in being kidnapped by ignorant people politically and ideologically. The most of them self-proclaimed as thinkers as same as that of Qin Shi Huang buried alive of trash scholars of China. They are talkative by taking wrong as right, take stupid as smart and recklessly promote bad for good, until right now.
Such ignorant people are self-proclaimed as the mentor to mankind, but their defective brain fills with social garbage and make them work as root source of social evil; and which is the big sorrow of Western Individualistic Civilization.
As self proud of higher animals of human being; the absence of plunder and war is the minimum standard for human civilization. Japan was once most affected by China based Collectivistic Civilization in long pursuing and enjoying peace, but, after it was tamed by the black ships of the United States, it also began to plunder and kill, and to have killed about 30 millions of Asians by provoking world war II.
