Please welcome tonight’s guest speaker…

Let’s hear it for Jacques Ellul. Take it away Jacques…

Men now live in conditions that are less than human. Consider the concentration of our great cities, the slums, the lack of space, of air, of time, the gloomy streets and the sallow lights that confuse night and day. Think of our dehumanized factories, our unsatisfied senses, our working women, our estrangement from nature. Life in such an environment has no meaning. Consider our public transportation, in which man is less important than a parcel. Yet we call this progress…and the noise, that monster boring into us at every hour of the night without respite.

…for historical man, until a comparatively late date, work was a punishment, not a virtue. It was better not to consume than to have to work hard; the rule was to work only as much as absolutely necessary in order to survive. Man worked as little as possible and was content with restricted consumption of goods.

The time given to technology was short, compared with the leisure time devoted to sleep, conversation, games, or, best of all, to meditation. As a consequence, technical activities had little place in these societies. Technology functioned only at certain precise and well-defined times. This was the case in all societies before our own. Technology was not part of man’s occupation nor a subject of preoccupation.

In our day, we are unable to envisage comfort except as part of the technical order of things. Comfort for us means bathrooms, easy chairs, foam rubber mattresses, air conditioning, washing machines, and so forth. For us, comfort is closely associated with material life; it manifests itself in the perfection of personal goods and machines. The men of the Middle Ages also were concerned with comfort, but for them comfort had an entirely different form and content. It represented a feeling of moral and aesthetic order. Space was a primary element in comfort. Man sought open spaces, large rooms, the possibility of moving about, of seeing beyond his nose, of not constantly colliding with other people. These preoccupations are altogether foreign to us.

Technology is of necessity, and as compensation, our universal language. It is the fruit of specialization. But this very specialization prevents mutual understanding. Everyone today has his own professional jargon, modes of thought, and peculiar perception of the world. There was a time when the distortion of oversimplification was the butt of jokes and a subject for vaudeville. Today the sharp knife of specialization has passed like a razor into the living flesh. It has cut the umbilical cord which linked men with each other and with nature. The man of today is no longer able to understand his neighbour because his profession is his whole life, and the technical specialization of this life has forced him to live in a closed universe. He no longer understands the vocabulary of others. Nor does he comprehend the underlying motivations of others.

Man was made to do his daily work with his muscles; but we see him now, like a fly on paper, seated for eight hours, motionless at his desk. Fifteen minutes of exercise cannot make up for eight hours of absence. The human being was made to breathe the good air of nature, but what he breathes is an obscure compound of acids and coal tars. He was created for a living environment, but he dwells in a lunar world of stone, cement, asphalt, glass, cast iron, and steel. The trees wilt and blanch among sterile and blind stone facades. Only rats and men remain to populate a dead world. Man was created to have room to move about in, to gaze into far distances, to live in rooms which, even when they were tiny, opened out on fields. See him now, enclosed by the rules and architectural necessities imposed by over-population in a twelve-by-twelve closet opening out on an anonymous world of city streets.

673814abc0aaf3dc32e5771dfdfdf726

The machine tends not only to create a new human environment, but also to modify man’s very essence. He must adapt himself, as though the world were new, to a universe for which he was not created. He was made to go 6 kilometers an hour, and he goes a thousand. He was made to eat when he was hungry and to sleep when he was sleepy; instead he obeys a clock. He was made to have contact with living things, and he lives in a world of cement. He was created with a certain essential unity, and he is fragmented by all the forces of the modern world.

…no longer are there any lonely mountains and deserted seacoasts. Solitude is no longer possible; space is at such a premium that men jostle one another everywhere. Quite apart from the solitude of relaxation, we no longer have even the normal solitude which implies sufficient space to live other than as if in a prison cell or at a factory workbench. Living and working traditionally meant open space, a no man’s land separating a man from his fellows. But there is no longer any possibility of that.

Andy_Yeung_urban_jungle_hongkong-750x500

Man has always known wide horizons. Even the city dweller had direct contact with limitless plains, mountains and seas. Beyond the enclosing walls of the medieval city, was open country. At most the citizen had to walk five hundred yards to reach the city walls, where space, fair and free, suddenly extended before him. Today man knows only bounded horizons and reduced dimensions. The space not only of his movements but of his gaze is shrinking.

article-2282764-18326F4C000005DC-862_964x771

In our cities there is no more day or night or heat or cold. But there is crowding, enslavement to press and television, total absence of purpose. All men are constrained by means external to them to ends equally external. The further the technical mechanism develops…the more we are subjected to artificial technical necessities.

crowds

That man until recently got along well enough without measuring time precisely is something we never even think about. What means there were in the past for measuring time belonged to the rich and until the fourteenth century, exerted no influence on real time or on life. The time man guided himself by corresponded to nature’s time. It became abstract when it was divided into hours, minutes and seconds. Today the human being is dissociated from the essence of life; instead of living time, he is split up and parceled out by it.

    That’s a great piece and before I got to the citation at the end, I was thinking Dudley has gone all soft. It’s a keeper, this one. I didn’t plan getting philosophical in this site, but….. there’s no doubt that less is more, simplicity is sophistication, and the small things in life are the big things. But HK people dont get this.
    One should use use money to buy experiences, to outside tedious stuff that wastes your time (i.e use money to buy time), and spend it on others. But locals love the LV, bathing ape, Gucci crap and more and more bags of shit. HK is the epicenter of conspicuous consumption”: sheepels buying stuff that they don’t need, with money that they don’t have, to impress people that they don’t know. Why? Because they dont have the confidence to be an “unbranded” person.
    I saw this local dude busking outside MOKO in MK last night. I’ve seen him for years, and some of you who have been here a while may have seen him too. He’s got one leg, glasses, plays guitar. Sings in English (he likes Billy Joel). He always sits on the path. He’s good, very good. Last night some asshole “whistling” busker 20 metres away set up a speaker as loud as hell and drowned out the one legged dude. So I gave the one legged dude a pile of dosh. I told him I had seen him singing for years and it was high time I gave him something. It felt good. Money well spent.

    Jacques Ellul is now on my reading list. His words from 1964 could’ve been written today. Gave me chills to read.

    I wonder if the people who live in those massive buildings pictured here think about the topics Ellul discusses. Or, to do so would be so traumatic they bury those thoughts in shopping, texting and tv watching.

    there is a Dutch guy at HKU called Frank Dikotter. He is a historian specialising in modern Chinese history, particularly under Chairman Mao. If you enjoy reading horror, dystopia or psychopathy, Dikotter’s books are a must. What you are now experiencing in Hong Kong is simply an echo of the past.

    Welp after going through this whole blog I can conclude that HK have taken our sanity away and make us rant about HK forever, may our scars in our brain one day hopefully be healed and move on

  11. Cat's Eye says:

    Why are Hong Kong Chinese such racist pigs? Especially the men, but also the women and I’m sure this issue extends to Mainland China.

    I’m dumbfounded how, on one hand, the Chinese want to embrace everything Western, but on the other hand they show complete disdain for those of us who are Western, especially women.

    I met with an attorney (Chinese) at a very large/well known firm in Central who had just come from a liquid lunch (translation – he was drunk) and he had the audacity to come on to me. He treated me as if I was some dumb shit uneducated woman. Since there was no one else in the room it would’ve been my word against his. In the second meeting my husband came along and the attorney was a completely different person. If we had been just about anywhere else in the world I would have done everything in my power to get his license revoked.

    And to reply to Anon on 15 July…I’ve lived in Mid-levels/Sai Ying Pun and Discovery Bay. My husband and I have had to deal with pianos being played for hours on end, children running for hours on end, furniture being moved at extremely odd hours, renovation work inside the building, an MTR station being built next to us, doors slamming, people yelling, dogs barking, the stench of trash, etc. We’ve paid a lot of money to deal with this shit.

    Yeah, this place is “da bomb” people…cockroaches, snakes, rats and all. And, for those of you who say just leave if you don’t like it… believe me at my first opportunity I will, permanently. In the mean time I will save every damn $$ I can.

    Why a Western expat would choose to live here permanently is beyond me. Oh, and I had relatives decades and decades ago who were big time merchants (from the UK) here — one who lived in the governor’s mansion and another who lived on the Peak. Gag me is about all i can say. I’m sure things were different then. Why anyone would pay $100k HKD per month or more to live on the Peak is just nuts. You think you have arrived, but you haven’t. You’re just a fool.

    I will leave and I will not be back. Yes, I fully admit that my country has a myriad of problems. The difference is is that when I do go home I won’t have to share walls with strangers, In fact, my walls will have insulation – what a concept! I will have my own vehicle, a home on a good chunk of land, a f…ing garbage disposal, a decent sized washer and a decent sized dryer, etc, etc. Oh, and I won’t have to listen to my neighbor taking a piss. OMG.

    I don’t know why anyone thinks this place is Asia’s World City. Sure, if you compare it to Manila, which is devoid of anything even remotely cultural, than maybe Hong Kong has a fighting chance.

    To those of you who are Hong Kong Chinese…no, you are not heads above the Mainland Chinese. You think you are, but you are not.

    Learn how to treat all people with respect, not just Chinese, not just men, but everyone. Don’t be so two-faced and don’t worry about saving face – it just makes you look pathetic. It’s such a cliche, but it does apply here – try to think outside the box. Yes, you learn by rote in school and that’s not your fault, but that isn’t life. Oh no, it’s not on my list so it can’t be possible. Oh no, I can’t check box A, B or C… uh, uh, I dunno maybe I should check box D or speak to my boss because I can’t make a decision on my own. It’s okay, you will survive.

    Many of you are going to say I’m a Western woman who is a racist pig and that’s okay. The difference is is that I’m fully aware of how I have changed living here. I’m not a hypocrite. I know exactly who I am and what I have become living here. I do my best to rise above the bullshit I see here everyday, but it gets more and more difficult as the years go by.

    Oh, and stop weaving and staring at your phone while you’re walking down the stairs or ambling down a sidewalk. You know I’m there and I will not move. You will move and you will appear surprised, but it’s all an act. If you and your pals are taking up the sidewalk I will plow right through you. No, I’m not a big person but I have the strength to let you know you can’t be an asshole every moment of the day.

    And, for the Westerners here that seem to have a growing sense of misplaced entitlement. Stop it, you’re just as shitty as the Chinese when you act like an asshole. Treat the helpers with respect and treat the Chinese and every other nationality as you would wish to be treated. Yes, you really can rise above the fray and do it graciously. And, no, you are no better than anyone else here.

    If I hear one more adult Chinese woman speaking like a child (and thinking it’s cute) I may vomit right on them.

    I do have a heart. My husband and I have given $1000s of dollars to various organizations and people throughout Asia.

    Be honest with yourself. Be honest with the people around you…”Honesty is such a lonely word,
    Everyone is so untrue, Honesty is hardly ever heard.”

    I had an interesting experience on a bus ride recently. I was boarding a bus full of people. As usual, everyone on the bus was staring intensely at the incoming passengers, as if a major attack was imminent. A elderly man in his 80s boarded and was apparently looking for a seat. As he approached the seating area, everyone immediately looked down to his or her phone and pretended they didn’t see the elderly man. This can only happen in Hong Kong

    Fuck you, fuck off and die you misoginst freak.

  20. Anonymous says:

    I get what soulshock22 is saying. We who have lived in HK and put up with all it’s horridness just for better-than-home wages are in fact prostituting ourselves until the day we say enough and get out. I did 10 years in HK, before relocating to BKK, where at least there is a palpable humanity amongst the locals. Unfortunately, I still need to travel frequently to HK, stay in a hotel, and swim in the cesspool of HKers until I can get back on the airport express train and get out again.

    Will it all be worth it when I finally chuck it and leave Asia entirely? I hope so. Would I do it all over again? Perhaps not. Your mental and physical health is more important than the bank deposits. Get out now.

    another fucked up apologist for HK perversion. Are you soulshock22 in disguise. Get a grip. Guessing you are Muslim or someone with major women problems (Thai girlfriend by any chance…white girls steer clear of your weirdness? stay clear of balconies to avoid another Farang death)

    Tony M, what you said is absurd. You came here by choice. You can leave anytime but you chose not to. You came here to earn a living because you couldn’t find a job in your home country OR you came here to earn a higher salary. You hate the people you are making money from. So why do you say you are different than a sex worker?

I stay close to the remnants of that: I mix with either westerners or bananas, I have great service from Chinamen like you, I get away to travel a lot, I eat western food and live in a western style…(as most Chinese do when they have acquired wealth, education and culture and become bananas and seek all things western from clothes to food to wine to the names of their buildings and houses and children). You see, Chinaman, there are nooks and crannies in this fake ‘World city’ where I can have my own reality and others like me can too…think the China towns you people enjoy, but the opposite! Does this answer your question? YOU COMPLETE FUCK WIT WHO IS TOO FUCKING DUMB AND UNCULTURED AND INEXPERIENCED TO IMAGINE THIS IS POSSIBLE

  26. Bingo Wong says:

    Chinaman, I can answer your question to Tony M from my own perspective:
    Tony M, what you said is absurd. You came here by choice
    YES I DID
    You can leave anytime but you chose not to.
    NO, IN JULY 2018 I COMPLETE AN EARN OUT THAT MEANS I NEVER HAVE TO WORK AGAIN IF I CHOOSE NOT TO, I HAVE TO STAY HERE UNTIL THEN (I AM GUESSING THAT SOMEONE LIKE YOU WILL NEED TO GOOGLE WHAT AN EARN OUT IS)
    You came here to earn a living because you couldn’t find a job in your home country OR you came here to earn a higher salary.
    NO, I CAME HERE BECAUSE I WAS BORN HERE AND WANTED TO START A BUSINESS IN ASIA. I HAD FONG CHILDHOOD MEMORIES, MY HOW IT HAS CHANGED
    You hate the people you are making money from.
    NO I DON’T, MY BUSINESS IS INTERNATIONAL, I HAVE VERY FEW CHINESE CLIENTS AND MY WORK RARELY INVOLVES CHINESE GEOGRAPHY, OFTEN NOT EVEN ASIA GEOGRAPHY. I DON’T MAKE MONEY FROM CHINESE, I GENERATE A LOT OF WEALTH FOR THEM, EMPLOY THEM AND BRING THEM FORWARD IN KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE. I GAT NOTHING IN RETURN FROM HK AS I WOULD, SAY, IF I HAD CHOSEN SINGAPORE…PENANG MY…. IF I HAD A PLETHORA OF CHINESE CLIENTS PERHAPS I WOULD HATE THEM, I WAS WARNED THAT THEY ARE HORRIBLE TO WORK WITH AND STUPID CHEATS, DESPITE THIS SOME YEARS AGO I WORKED WITH MAINLAND AND HK CLIENTS, I DON’T BOTHER NOW, THEY ARE NOT WORTH IT
    So why do you say you are different than a sex worker?
    I AM CONCERNED THAT, AS TONY M POINTED OUT, A CHINAMAN LIKE YOU IS STILL TO DUMB TO EVER WORK IT OUT. I CAN ADD THAT WHEN IT COMES TO ‘SEX WORK’ CHINESE WOMEN ARE ALMOST ALL SEX WORKERS, THEY WILL DO ANYTHING, ANYTHING, TO BE WITH ME AND NOT WITH YOU.

    Should add: Chinaman is the type who would likely harass women.
    What makes Cats Eye’s experience bizarre – and no less awful and distressing – is that a Chinaman actually believed that he might stand a chance with a western woman – unsurprisingly his approach was a disgusting, inappropriate, drunken advance.
    Chinamen are clearly forgetting their place and the fact that no western woman would ever consider going near them.
    the Chinese on this blog should be apologizing and saying that not all Chinese are the same…but they are not…because they are all the same..

    “Financial pressure, career-driven mentalities and limited space are seen as key drivers for Hong Kong having a fertility rate that is one of the lowest in the world by some measures, with an average 1.04 births per woman according to the World Bank.”
    In addition to the above-mentioned factors driving a low fertility rate in HK, we should add:
    – Chinamen with small dicks (while I’m on the topic, guys, pse stop blow drying your pubes in the gym)
    – Chinamen obsession with Candy Crush (rather than eye candy)
    – Chinamen unsure if they are male or female (small toys hanging off their backpacks, preening themselves in bathroom mirrors, and a nervy obsession with fixing the hair)

    The police wont prosecute ‘buck teeth’ perverts (Chinese). They are racist and frame white guys. I have to say this because it true.

    Bunch of unbelievable racist scum. I think time is actually quite overdue for the fucking Chinese to get what they truly deserve from the international community (a real beating). I have never been to court apart from prosecuting one asshole who smashed into my car – head on. The police was at the scene and verified beyond a shadow of doubt that it was totally the Chinaman’s fault, but sometime later I was virtually interrogated by the police about the accident, at which point I was absolutely mad at them because they were at the scene and verified everything. My car was a write off and he should have been convicted for dangerous driving. Luckily for me I suffered only minor injuries. Guess what, he just received a $200 fine and a slap on the wrist from his fellow yellow racist scum. After that it took almost 3 years for his insurance to pay for the loss of my car, at which point the car had already devalued some 30%. Hong Kong is really heading down a brutal racist, corrupt, biased slope, on a massive scale… and it seems that nobody is taking any notice of this.

    That’s bollox. it just doesn’t get reported because the locals know the rank and file police are either useless or as bent as an 9 dollar notes. The latest stats suggest one in seven women in HK have experienced sexual violence in their lives. All those tens of thousands of gweilos (out of a population of over 7 milion) must be shitting well busy fitting it all in along with a full time job
    In 2015-2016 there weer 486 cases of rape and sexual assault reported, 43 % of which happened in a domestic setting ie the people involved knew each other.. its believed more is taking place than the numbers suggest but isn’t reported. ,Mainly because of the stigma local women would be subject to if they reported it.Also the number of rape crisis centres is miniscule for a city this size.
    Also stop saying you are an advance country. You aren’t advanced and you aren’t a country.

    More bollox. See No1 above. Seven million people and all the violent crime is committed by a few thousand gweilos? Most of the locals settle scores in house and don’t involve the local plod.. If its local vs gweilo the local invariably plays to the gallery with some semi autistic screaming play acting .that’s usually a complete travesty of what actually happened.

  40. Chinaman contoller says:

    If you have an altercation with a local they will desperately try to involve the police. Do whats apororiate n right them then get away ASAP. Gotts be VERY careful in Hong Wrong.

    The reason why Chinese blow dry their pube hair at the gym is a bit like the birds preparing fancy nest to impress girls. Fact is, they don’t have a penis, it’s so small might as well use their fingers, so all they have to show is that little forest, so better take care of it like a lady.

    I really despise Chinese, HKers are even worse as they think they are above them. They’re even worse, they’re the biggest coward in the world. Just need to see all the little faggots on the subreddit, no balls. You know they look like girls and pretend they some sort of Japanese manga Characters, while listening to the gayest Cantopop songs ever.

    The Chinese are hated everywhere they go, especially amongst its neighbours–from Inner Mongolia in the north to the Indonesia in the South. The hatred is particularly noted in Xinjiang. But the funny thing is that the Chinese hates themselves too.

    Mr Dudley, if you have the time I would love to read one on their terrible driving.

    From the minibus drivers, to the guys who leave the cars running for no reason making things dirty, getting taken out by cars that never indicate, Mirrors on trucks taking you clean out on the footpath.. etc

    Such a disgusting and parasitic race. When they are gone the world will be a better and more diverse place.

  48. AK47 says:

    I think the main fuel is for me is that this place is boring.
    there’s no challenges, “I don’t to die here for fucks sake?” is in most of our non HK born minds, etc??. Am I wrong?

    HK has to be the only country where you don’t know if the person has a down syndrome or just normal. They look like them, act like them. Yet someone with down syndrome has more common sense and humanity than these dogs.

    Time for a different post perhaps?

  70. Buck says:

    yes, the swearathon is a bit of a yawn.

  71. Anonymous says:

    Are bored, Buck? Try the Cantonese swearathon then… ‘I fak yo mada’, if you know what I mean, or ‘diu lei lo mo’ ( 𨳒你老母). Enjoy it, also the finger pointing martial art.

  72. AK47 says:

    Can you write in English please. Thanks.

  73. Dick says:

    Obviously there are something very wrong mentally with these fucking people. Would you say they are mostly psychopaths, sociopaths or a bit of both?

  74. AK47 says:

    I guess the post goes on.

    I recently saw on HK TV one of these juvenile games shows, where local celebrities compete by playing silly games with each other. That little fat guy that dresses like transvestite called Eric hosts it.

    One of the favorites seems to be the Ping Pong game where two celebrities face each other, and each has to try and suck a floating Ping Pong ball first.

    The person I was watching with understood Chinese, so I asked who these people were?

    The person said that they were famous movie and music stars. I asked how famous? The person replied some were very famous.

    Then a part of the show came on showing prizes, gold watch $10,000, bracelet $7,000 etc.

    I asked whats this? The person replied that these were the prizes the celebrities win.

    I said but they are already so wealthy, it’s not given to charity? The person replied “oh no, the celebrities wouldn’t do the show for free, there’d be no show”.

  75. HK Small Penis Island says:

    AK47 – exactly shows the culture. Instead of giving it to charity like the celebrities in Europe or US, they will just ask for money. It’s that face system, no way im doing anything for free, what are my parents going to say!

  76. Anonymous says:

    C’mon guys, this is a lot worse than just ‘losing face’. It’s being completely dissociated from the essence of any form of life. Celebrities are the ones who can at least show some level of compassion towards those much less fortunate. Charity is also good for their image. What I find puzzling and unbelievably revolting is how hongkongers take this inhumane lack of compassion and pathetic sense of greed at face value, as it is the most natural and normal behaviour. How the hell is this possible? Are we living in the 21st Century or in the Neolithic Period?

  77. HK Small Penis Island says:

    we need more post!

  78. AK47 says:

    Just throwing some ideas around, but was thinking maybe some celebrities can post?
    I reckon a couple of diamond Rolex’s, a mid-priced BMW and some free talent lessons would be enough?

  79. AK47 says:

    Hmm mm, yep agreed the “smart phones” is a family favorite, but,,,,, as you observed maybe too obvious/common? There’s got to be a way to express something not already expressed to put down these evolutionary mistakes for our amusement? Hmm mm, lets mull this over guys:)

  80. Buck says:

    we need Dudley to write something about “smart phones, dumb users”. Or is it just too obvious/common to write about?

  81. Buck says:

    Or, how about something on “exercising: HK style”: the dancing aunties (that play the same damn song…every….friggen….night), the dudes walking backwards in the park, the topless old guys slapping themselves, the noisy hikers kitted out with enough gear to survive on an island for a month, and the guys in the gym that just sit there and….well, sit there.

  82. There’s a post about HK exercising from around 2011 or so

  83. AK47 says:

    About ten years ago, dogs were regarded as dirty and definitely rarely pets. Obviously some minor french fry celebrity must have come on TV and announced that owning dogs brought longevity, wealth or some other silliness. And of course after that important announcement the dog phenomenon exploded. I do however like the really small fluffy cute ones, you know, the ones that yap in supersonic and look like the after effect of a rat that fornicated a feather duster. I also love the puffed up joggers peacocking around each other, again no doubt some dust sized celeb announced some other vomit to cause this new primate behavior.

  84. AK47 says:

    Well so its me again??? Come on you lazy lot! In the name of charitable relief!

    OK, hm mm well I got some time to tap in some thoughts for a new subject/post,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,hmm.

    Yep that’s it!

    Buck well noted that ” the guys in the gym that just sit there and….well, sit there”.
    And this has got me pondering.

    Maybe, just maybe mind, they’re are not there to exercise?

    OK, now, here’s a thought. Could they be closet gay and poofs looking for other poofs to have poofy sexual intercourse with in a gay poofy environment?

    I’m not homophobic or anything like that klu klax klan thing, or those dedicated moonies, but what do you think of the poofy closet HK male gym theory though as a new subject/post??/?;)
