对于从东亚的角度看待世界的任何人来说,最近针对英国王子安德鲁的性指控都特别引人注目。 在这里,我们有英国长期担任国际贸易和投资特别代表,被指控与未成年女孩发生性关系。 尽管安德鲁一直否认这些指控,但到2011年,他已经因传言(在佛罗里达州的法庭文件中正式提及他的名字)而感到尴尬,因为他辞去了特别贸易代表的职务。 据称,这名女孩名为简·杜(Jane Doe)#3,是美国基金经理杰弗里·爱泼斯坦(Jeffrey Epstein)向他介绍的。 爱泼斯坦以前是贝尔斯登期权交易员,以前是一个神秘的交易员,他以对未成年女性公司的热爱着称。 他于2008年因恋童癖罪而被定罪,并被指控使用隐藏的摄像机勒索政治领导人和其他有影响力的人。 爱泼斯坦曾任职于三边委员会,这一事实并没有削弱这个故事的地缘政治意义。批评者称,三边委员会是一个强大的,甚至是秘密的全球主义组织,批评者称,该组织有效地受到了东亚的控制,并且已经努力了数十年,以中和西方对东开放的努力。亚洲市场。 几乎毫无例外,欧洲委员会的美国成员被科诺蒂奇认为是东亚的假货和假货。 正如我的同事克莱尔·奥康纳(Clare O'Connor)指出的那样,关于爱泼斯坦的众多谜团之一是(杰弗里·爱泼斯坦(Jeffrey Epstein):性犯罪者,是的。 亿万富翁,没有), he is far less wealthy than he likes people to believe — he does not even own the Manhattan house that is regarded as one of his major assets. There are even grounds for doubting whether he is really a serious fund manager. (He has had no known clients in recent years and says he does not accept portfolios of less than $1 billion — a sum so large that even the richest citizens would think twice about entrusting such a character-challenged manager with their money.) What’s Epstein’s real agenda? In the absence of hard facts, we should reserve judgment. But there is a larger point here that is worth noting: Western business and political leaders are far more vulnerable to sexual blackmail than their East Asian counterparts. This is yet another manifestation of a major cultural asymmetry that, in a world of unrestrained globalism, strongly favors the East. The story starts with the fact – is this a surprise? – that East Asian societies do not subscribe to Judeo-Christian values. In practice East Asian males are under virtually no social or legal restraints to be faithful to their wives (a husband’s role in many East Asian marriages seems to be no more than to get home before dawn and bring in a pay check once a month). Hence in part the massive size of the red-light districts in Tokyo, Seoul, and Shanghai. Even pedophiles seem to enjoy carte blanche, provided only they confine their predations to red-light districts (preferably foreign ones in such sex-tourism destinations as Thailand, Cambodia, and India). Now consider what pathetic figures Westerners cut in East Asia. Introduced by friendly local hosts to the fleshpots, many newly arrived Western men have compromised themselves even before they have shaken their jet lag. For Americans in particular, the dangers are acute. Not only are U.S. divorce laws particularly unforgiving, but Americans tend to be exceptionally naïve in nations like Japan and South Korea. While these nations are assumed to play by Queensberry rules (after all they are among America’s closest allies, aren’t they?), their true modus operandi is more like kick-boxing. Not only do Japan and South Korea remain among the world’s most mercantilist nations, but they have consistently proved highly effective in squeezing advanced technology out of America’s few remaining serious manufacturers. 正如我在这个领域反复提到的,波音一直是日本技术转让计划的特殊受害者。 勒索在美国相对衰落中起了多大作用? 尽管该问题本质上是无法衡量的,但我们可以做出一些推断。 从企业高管到华盛顿的政策制定者再到大学学者再到外国通讯员,近年来,美国人代表美国在东亚的国家利益,在努力方面表现出明显的萎缩。 在无疑涉及的各种因素中,特殊的“个人压力”可能并非最小。
