China is a paper tiger, a facade.
China is a paper tiger, a facade.
Like it or not this is still a deeply Christian country, and many do believe, certainly more that do, than don't. So, although you don't, I am sure you would agree that you wouldn't want me to denigrate your beliefs, by comparing it to say that of a mental ward patient would you?It doesn't have anything to do with the Bible and soothsayers, although my buddy, Two Fingers McSlippery, a renowned local soothsayer, says to anyone who will listen to "hang on to your four leaf clovers."
Alternate Title: Country that tries to be a super power but can't because their economy is a giant on stilts joins country that used to be relevant but since ceasing to be relevant has gone deeper and deeper down the toilet for naval drills.
"Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough."
hahahaThe US debt to China means when the Chinese repatriate USDollars for National Parks, Oil, gas, timber, mineral, etc. leases to turn those fiat papers into productive assets that the US will lose those assets.
What country ceases to exist if the debt is cancelled? The one in debt or the one holding the debt.China manufactures much of our electronics, everyday products, has its own satellite communication systems, weapons, armies, ships, dirt, dirtbags and politicians. It has been kind to the USA by not crashing the dollar by selling its dollar reserves and always holds that card in the geopolitical poker game.
What?Paper Tiger, my ass.
They are a nation of slave labor, operating without human, civil, labor or environmental rights. All the things you consider terrible about the US economic system are much much worse in China. Yet, you claim they are more stable.A hard working group of 1.3 billion citizens negotiating currency swap agreements around the world, so they do not have to use the USDollar. They're not in a hurry. Continuous society for 5,000 years.
Regarding worker rights - on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, if the US is a 5 then China is a 1. And yet you laud it... why?
As I said, although governments, strike that, SOME governments are buying up assets like this, doesn't necessarily mean that a collapse of the US Dollar as world reserve currency is, or is not "inevitable" is it?The paper money ain't gonna be so good, so change assets to real estate, precious metals, rights, and other tangibles so when the reserve status changes they will retain value.
The "unseen hand"? Who is that? Please tell me we are not veering off into conspiracy territory are we? MIlitaries are the force used by Government to impose their will. So, if you take a situation where the world's reserve currency collapses, chaos would ensue would it not? Isn't it also possible in a scenario like this that a Military, or collaboration of military cooperation could, and most likely would be used to attempt to shift the balance of power in the world?Militaries are always the red herring in these scenarios and whoever writes their paychecks will be the unseen hand.
You may be more correct if you said misinterpretation of religion, or religious dogma has aided in the start of many conflicts, but to just say religion itself is the cause of many wars is incorrect, and I think an anti religious biased view.As regards religion. Religion has been the cause of more wars than any other reason. It doesn't have a very good track record.
