    Just one man’s opinion

    He is originally from south africa but has lived in china for more than 10 years

    I think its worth a few minutes of your time to hear what he has to say

    But if you dont care to listen, here is the reason in a nutshell - America is culturally and politically divided and china is not

    Not necessarily

    And where is the difference to what the US wants ... and think is?

    Sure ... you come, of course, with the argument that China = evil dictatorship but USA = exemplary democracy and guarantor of freedom on this planet ... so rather accept the US.

    I see the differentiated, because the US has no white vest of innocence ... which is also quite dirty and bloody .... and I rather see it that there are better 2 to 3 equal powers, than just one.
    Because Trump clearly shows that the US also likes to abuse their power to enforce their interests against the weaker. Without opponents, it is easier for the US!

    Hmmm? A totalitarian society is more powerful than a free society of independent minds? Nah. Not if reality is real; and if it’s not, then the argument is as mute as it is pointless.

    China will do another thousand unrepentant Tianamen Squares, put millions of Muslims in reeducation camps, or use any amount of lethal force, do any amount of spying and intellectual theft; China will do whatever it takes to become number one, and the US congress and US educational system has encouraged them to do this for many decades.

    China knows that might makes right.

    I have seen several of his videos. He is not nearly as smart as he thinks he is as he loves himself too much. But .... I also believe that China will persevere.

    If you think back in time (my lifetime anyway) China was always feared for its sheer numbers in the population. "They'll just keep on coming." is what was said about standing toe to toe against them in a war. Personally, I think the question of which will be the last man standing (between China and the US) will come down to which nation is most corrupt. I'm not sure if it's the U.S. or China but the most corrupt will eventually lose .... whether it be a standing war or an economic one.


    Not true. Do you (or he) have any idea how many different languages and cultures that China comprises?

    The natives are restless in China, but they don't dare say much because might makes right.

    That has been true for hundreds of years. The real problem is that none of our leaders seem to have the slightest interest in what will actually be good for America over the long term. It used to be we criticized our corporate leaders for being only interested in the next quarters results and now we have politicians whose only interest is in getting rich while in office and in getting reelected.
