Nixon and Mao - Only Contrast with No Comparison 尼克松与毛泽东 - 只有对照没有比较

Mao and Nixon in 1972 尼克松与毛泽东,1972

Nixon and Mao - Only Contrast with No Comparison 尼克松与毛泽东 - 只有对照没有比较


尼克松图书馆/博物馆中的毛铜像陈列说明了人们道德与头脑的混乱。 尼克松的访华是基于击垮苏俄维持和平的动机、是策略的选择。 毛泽东会见尼克松只是为了维护其个体权力与中共的反人类的专制制度。 两者有本质的区别。 今天将两者混为一谈并将毛作为向美国开放的功臣不光是一个理性的混乱,而且是一个道德良知的混乱与腐败。 --- 陈凯

The display of Mao's statue inside of the Nixon Library/Museum is a manifestation of people's confusion in the realms of rationality and morality. Nixon visited China with only one purpose in mind - to defeat the Soviet Union who posed as the most dangerous threat to world peace and freedom. Mao's reception of Nixon was only motivated by expediency to secure his own power and to stabilize/maintain the dictatorship of the Chinese Communist Party. There was only contrast between the two with no comparison. Today to compare and to confuse the motives of Nixon and Mao is not only an intellectual dishonesty, but also a moral confusion and corruption. --- Kai Chen


Dear Visitors:

The reason I protested and plan more actions over the display of Mao's statue in the Nixon Presidential Library/Museum is a simple one - to clear some confusion and to defeat moral corruption caused by the Chinese communist infiltration in America and the Americans' complacency over the threat to freedom in the world from the "soft cold war" championed by the despotic Chinese Party-State. As far as I can see, the Chinese communist party-state is winning the "soft cold war" by turning America into China-like state with big, omnipresent and omnipotent government (government Not as servant of the people, but as savior of the people) and helpless individuals.

A simple story in my family during the Cultural Revolution tells it all:

At the beginning of the Cultural Revolution, red guards started to ransack people's homes at random, based on suspicion and perceived problematic family background. My parents hang out a group photo on the most conspicuous place with my father as a staff member of the Chinese Customs with Mao, Zhu, Liu in Zhongnanhai compound. We credited our survival from that part of period partially to this photo, for people would hesitate before they destroy our home, fearing the connection between my father and Mao. But the truth is my parents were exiled by Mao and his cohorts to Manchuria. It was Mao who caused all the misery and atrocities. It is like when a doctor infects you with germs and viruses and then tries to cure you the disease he causes. Do you want to curse him to hell or do you want to thank him for trying to cure the disease? People with the Stockholm Syndrome will certainly thank him. But people with common sense and moral decency will curse him to hell.

If you understand the moral clarity in my action, you will understand the confusion and corruption both in China and in America today. I, as an American citizen, will fight for the principles established by the founding fathers - life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Despotism/tyranny has no room in America and should never be accepted as something we can tolerate, or worse, appreciate. Despotism/tyranny is the same everywhere in the world, regardless whether it is white, black, brown or yellow.... Affirmative action is just as insidious in destroying people's moral decency in the realm of education and job preference in America as in fighting against the enemies of freedom in the world.

I will always thank Nixon for I had a chance to have met and married my wife who was an American exchange student in 1978. But I will never thank Mao for anything. The world would have been much better without Mao and what he had created.

Let's pluck up our courage, clear our vision and take actions to protect and preserve the values of America.

Best wishes to you all. Kai Chen 陈凯

希望你不要把所有的不幸都归罪在一个人历史人物身上,用你这样的方式生活,人间的不幸就会更多。 多多反省自己的言行,看看是否够得上男人这两个字。
