内亚海洋与帝国秩序(三):秩序洼地
沒有西方的技術的話,大清早已滅亡了。如果沒有西方技術的輸出的話,中共在九十年代末期也早已滅亡了。

東亞在孔子時代是有自身的秩序的,但在秦代以後,變成了一個喪失了秩序生產力的一個被動的物質

中國處在什麼樣的地位。它是由兩套機制維持的:第一套機制就是世界資本主義的秩序,吸收了沿海地區的中國人加入他們的代工環節;第二套機制就是吏治國家的汲取機器,它從這個代工環節中間收了大量的稅款,對它進行二次再分配,用來維持官僚和軍隊機器

在舊的十九世紀,以大英帝國為首的殖民主義秩序解體以後,我剛才講過的這三種秩序,美國的威爾遜主義的秩序、蘇聯的共產國際的秩序和日本的泛亞主義秩序,為了爭奪真命天子的職位,在遠東發起了一場龍爭虎鬥的戰役,戰鬥的結果就是我們看到的中國近代史。

World War II bombings weakened upper atmosphere at edge of space | Ars Technica
Major and his colleagues found a pronounced decrease in electron concentration—a loss of ionization—in the ionosphere around the time of the air raids, likely due to a heating effect of the shockwaves produced by the bombings.

Freddie Oversteegen, Dutch resistance fighter who killed Nazis through seduction, dies at 92 - The Washington Post
By Truus’s account, it was Freddie Oversteegen who became the first to shoot and kill someone. “It was tragic and very difficult and we cried about it afterwards,” Truus said. “We did not feel it suited us — it never suits anybody, unless they are real criminals. . . . One loses everything. It poisons the beautiful things in life.”


The Oversteegen sisters were officially part of a seven-person resistance cell, which grew to include an eighth member, Schaft, after she joined in 1943. But the three girls worked primarily as a stand-alone unit, Pliester said, acting on instructions from the Council of Resistance.

After the war ended in 1945, Truus worked as an artist, making paintings and sculptures inspired by her years with the resistance, and wrote a popular memoir, “Not Then, Not Now, Not Ever.” She died in 2016, two years after Prime Minister Mark Rutte awarded the sisters the Mobilization War Cross, a military honor for service in World War II.

For her part, Freddie Oversteegen told Vice that she coped with the traumas of the war “by getting married and having babies.” She married Jan Dekker, taking the name Freddie Dekker-Oversteegen, and raised three children. They survive her, as do her half brother and four grandchildren. Her husband, who worked at the steel company Hoogovens, is deceased.

In interviews, Ms. Oversteegen often spoke of the physics of killing — not the feel of the trigger or kick of the gun, but the inevitable collapse that followed, her victims’ fall to the ground.

“Yes,” she told one interviewer, according to the Dutch newspaper IJmuider Courant , “I’ve shot a gun myself and I’ve seen them fall. And what is inside us at such a moment? You want to help them get up.”
