The Niceness here in Vancouver

At night you meet a lot of beggars. Even the beggars here are nice?

I heard that ever since Chinese got rich, beggars in the States would learn Chinese and beg from the Chinese tourists.

Yeah I met that too last night. A woman, probably Vietnamese or some thing, definitely not Chinese. She spoke some ok Chinese but with accent, you will instantly this person is not a native Chinese speaker. But she asked me for feeding her some pizza or some stuff, yeah, buy her a pizza. Eh, I declined, coz I am poor as hell as well. ...READ MORE

Multiculturalism in Vancouver

As a giant immigrant city, Vancouver has all sorts of colors between its streets and alleys.

What is celebrated here in Canada, and people proud of, is this sense of harmony between people from different cultures.

You can see an Indian dude working in a Chinese supermarket smiling at its Chinese colleagues; some Iranian guys working in the immigration customs; some random Asian woman with a bad accent providing help for new comers and some white woman with probably East Europe background selling sim cards for whomever in need. ...READ MORE

The Immigration Dichotomy

Immigrants are usually a scene of prosperity of a country.

People far from their homes come to a country where mostly, they are alien to.

I ate a bowl of ramen in Fuku’s Ramen last night. Initially, I thought it was a ramen shop opened by Japanese, because, ramen are Japanese cuisine right? But it was actually a ramen shop operated by Koreans. The waitress is Korean, the chef is also Korean.

It reminded me of something. What surrounds the ramen shop are a dozen of Chinese stores opened by Chinese. ...READ MORE

Why Is Sex So Forbidden?

So when we talk about sex, excuse me, we don’t.

Even though society is already very sexually open today, there still seems to be an amount of people simply not fond of the topic of sex. And this bunch of prudish sexually-probably-depressed people are simply afraid of talking about sex.

Why though?

Why when we talk about sex, it always seems like a covert mission for everyone to take part in. And sometimes, people just straight up refuse the mission. ...READ MORE

Sex Industry

The porn industry can be one of the major contributors to an economy.

Porn industry in the US alone amounts to $20 billion around in 2016, and in 2001, it was $10 billion. The economy is growing, so does the porn industry.

Besides from pure pornography, which is basically consumable goods that can be watched, listened to and played. But any other sex-related transactions would be considered prostitution. In plain words, it’s legal if you look at someone doing such things but completely a no-no if you are actually doing it. ...READ MORE

Fakery

Able men are humble.

If brute force pervades savage world, then lies are the currency of civilized society.

If one can lie and cheat to his way, why in the world would one use brute force? A much costlier and harder method of dealing with things.

Lies don’t cost anything. You only need to present a falsified reality with a set of rhetorical words, to deceive, and to cheat.

I find that weak people always seek ways to pretend themselves as the strong. Out of sheer self-protection? Or vanity? ...READ MORE

Hard Power and Soft Power

The concept of power is essentially a means of control in civic area.

Power, as it usually manifests, is divided into two categories. Hard power, and soft power.

Hard power, is by utilizing oppression and physical forces in order to make others do as you say.

Soft power, on the other hand, is usually agreements. Unlike hard power being mostly oppression, soft power utilizes general consent.

The nuanced difference is that, you may find a second way and circumvent the soft power imposed on you. However, you can’t find any other way than obey to the hard power imposed on you. ...READ MORE
