”Basic "... If a skyscraper has no foundation. It can't be done. If a country has no industrial accumulation. All technology is fantasy. Just stay on the paper.The answer lies in stop relying on international education. Science is the same everywhere in the universe, and it is waiting to be discovered. Much of what has been discovered is already available in the form of research papers. And the real truth of the matter is that the mind boggling success of countries like China stands in large part on wholesale buying out of technology, manpower, and where possible, espionage.
In a previous employment, the mentor assigned to me was a graduate from Russia's most premier institute of theoretical physics. He tells me back in the 1950s Britain hired Russian scientists on salaries of 30000K pounds per month for secret research projects. Yes, that is Thirty Thousand pounds per month in the 1950s. He says, as late as a couple of years ago, precincts in China hired Russian scientists on similarly mind boggling salaries so they could continue to get funding from the central government. And my Chinese friends have told me frankly that many of the technologies we see in China came about because entire companies were bought out.
Our problem is slavish mentality. We feel the need for someone else to teach us. The Prime Minister of a nuclear armed country goes around the world, begging people to teach us how to govern. What a joke! In seventy years we could not develop the vision to develop Gawadar through our own initiative. Like a damsel in distress, we need some shining knight to come to our rescue. Well, the fact is, there are no shining knights. By submitting yourself to the pedagogy of others, you enslave yourself. No one is going to teach you so much that you became their masters. You are on your own, and Allah has already given you all you need to excel. All you need to do is end the mental slavery.
In the Mao era. China's literacy rate has reached 75%. Now Pakistan and india?
In the Mao era. China has been able to make warship steel.
In the Mao era. China can build wind tunnels.
In the Mao era. China can manufacture aerospace grade industrial materials.
In the Mao era. China can build nuclear submarines.
In the Mao era. China can manufacture intercontinental ballistic missiles and submarine launched ballistic missiles.
For example - type 055 DDG. Its name was "055 project" in 60s. 055 was a dream of the Chinese at that time. It carries the Chinese dream of building a world-class Navy.
But why don't Mao make 055?!!
Why didn't China make 055 in 1960s?!!
The problem is very simple: industrial accumulation is not enough.
Back to the 5th generation fighter. thanks very much for the great contribution made by Mao era. They have built a complete aviation industry chain. From 2 to 3 generations. They build forward-looking plans and most of them come true. but I'm sorry. The J-9 is the first third generation aircraft in Asia. Bankruptcy because of industrial capacity. Y-10 is the largest transport aircraft in Asia. Mass production was cancelled because of funding.
As some Westerners and Chinese say, "three elements of success"—— buying, manpower, espionage.
Suppose there are only three elements.... It seems very simple. So suppose - you buy technology. You have manpower. You learned espionage from the CIA. can you make it?
I'm very honest with you - No.
Technology is based on industry. But unfortunately. Industry cannot be achieved through the "three elements of success".
Salute Pakistan. You made the first step of the plan. Let the future test it.
