Some of my observations these days

I watch the French presidential election out of curiosity. Which led to the question "What do the Viet people in France think?"

Surprisingly, they don't give a shit.

Also surprising observation:

1. They give no fuck about local elections either.

2. They don't care who run their arrondissement, cities, towns, communes.

3. The only politics they care is Vietnam.

4. Some get France's news from the Vietnamese channels in the US.


5. Almost all of them move from Vietnam running away from the communist government.

6. Surprisingly, because they don't give a fuck about politics, they don't realize their communities locate in the region controlled by Socialist Party or French Communist Party.

7. And because these regions are in dip shit (like blue cities in the US), they blame capitalism for their deteriorate condition.

8. Some who arrived later oppose communism but find socialism appealing.


Some expats from the PRC are like that, too. Apolitical, because back home, it didn't do a damn bit of good to care about politics, and could be actually dangerous.

Compared to how put off Koreans are with the mudslinging in the Korean presidential election.

Koreans have this annoying thing about huffing and puffing too much to the point that it puts off everybody.

When we think voting doesn't change anything here, we'll keep that thinking if we move to anywhere else in the world.

But I saw one comment on Facebook that sums up this perfectly:

Where they can't vote to change anything, they come to the polling station and finish quickly. Where they can vote freely to elect anyone, they stay home and say "It doesn't change shit".

I know many intellectual Vietnamese voted blue because Republicans were bloodthirsty imbeciles (in their mind) ๐Ÿ˜‚ .

โ€œI have heard it confidently stated, for instance, that the American troops had been brought to Europe not to fight the Germans but to crush an English revolution. One has to belong to the intelligentsia to believe things like that: no ordinary man could be such a fool.โ€--George Orwell, "Notes On Nationalism," 1945

Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
