lol At the comments praising China on here for having a good economy. Do you have any idea how China makes its money? they use slavery of their poorest citizens.

Interestingly it's also not making a profit at the moment, it's relying on it's assets to invest on the assumption of later profits once all this shit is built or bought.

So there's an old saying, "When America coughs, the rest of the world gets pneumonia" or something along those lines. Obviously, this is a reference to America's ability to start trends and set the tone for everything else.

I think this trendsetting status has been slowly been taken over by China.

  • First Xi Jinping, a relative outsider to the oligarchy, rose to power, then Donald Trump, another relative outsider, did so in the USA.
  • First the Hong Kong riots, then the American BLM riots
  • First Evergrande's collapse, then the current slowdown/possible early crash in the USA
  • China did Coronavirus lockdowns before they were cool
  • China has been making a massive push to move semiconductor manufacturing to the mainland. Now America is doing the same.
  • China famously had massive influence over what American studios would put out. Now 3 out of the top 5 global box offices are for Chinese movies.
It'll be interesting to see how the Chinese mass detention of Uyghurs will be mirrored in the US.

Jan 6 protestors.

Anyways, naysayers like Styx and Razorfist make the assumption that China is weak when really, they have weaknesses. Now under someone like Trump or Bismarck, it would be a distinction without a difference because he can capitalize on that weakness. But under the typical American politician--which is what Biden is--America is the more fatuous and insular of these two countries. Americans cannot even conceive of Chinese problems or are even serious about solving its own. Border crisis? Eh, let it continue. Shipping crisis? Just yell at them to get back to work. There is no political will to fix these kinds of problems, problems that simply do not exist in China.

To add onto to any Sinophile's starry eyed idea of China becoming a power to deal with, they have demographics which are likely to fuck them. You know how the One-child Policy really screwed up their sex ratio for the population? That may cause China to halve in population from 1.25/1.4 billion anywhere from 2050 to 2070. In other words, they've only gotten twenty to thirty years to really push forward with their desire to be the top dog on the world stage.
