    I think Biden will follow Deep State. If they want to go against China, Russia, or Ukraine, he won't stand in the way. But I was more thinking about the Middle East.

    Can you imagine being "de-platformed" from money?
    Because of your politics?
    It is already in place in China
    On the way here

    Wrong again. Superior innovation in the US is due to the profit motive. You know, the very thing you backward thinking Libs try to kill with government interference and socialist policies.

    Property rights including intellectual property, freedom to enter contracts, and rule of law. All of which are endangered by progressives.

    Yes. Joe. I am more afraid of the US's Mao-like cultural revolution than I am of actual China.

    If the US became a place of freedom again, they wouldn't be a threat to us in any way.

    The "Cultural Revolution" even sounds like what they are doing or want to do here. And that killed 40 to 80M people

    This is from the WAPO. They dont write em like this anymore

    HOW MANY DIED? NEW EVIDENCE SUGGESTS FAR HIGHER NUMBERS FOR THE VICTIMS OF MAO ZEDONG'S ERA By Valerie Strauss and Daniel Southerl July 17, 1994

    "While it is hardly any comfort to their victims, the two people most associated with mass deaths in this bloodiest of human centuries -- Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin -- were likely surpassed by a third, China's Mao Zedong.

    Mao launched more than a dozen campaigns during his rule, which began when he founded Communist China in 1949 and ended with his death in 1976. Some are well known while others, such as a bloody campaign to "purify class ranks" in the late 1960s, which involved army units, have received little publicity.

    While most scholars are reluctant to estimate a total number of "unnatural deaths" in China under Mao, evidence shows he was in some way responsible for at least 40 million deaths and perhaps 80 million or more. This includes deaths he was directly responsible for and deaths resulting from disastrous policies he refused to change.

    One government document that has been internally circulated and seen by a former Communist Party official now at Princeton University says that 80 million died unnatural deaths -- most of them in the famine following the Great Leap Forward. This figure comes from the Tigaisuo, or the System Reform Institute, which was led by Zhao Ziyang, the deposed Communist Party chief, in the 1980s to study how to reform Chinese society.

    In comparison, Hitler is blamed for 12 million concentration camp deaths and at least 30 million other deaths associated with World War II, while Stalin is believed responsible for between 30 million and 40 million "unnatural deaths," including millions from a famine he created.

    There are important reasons for the wide discrepancy in the Chinese estimates. During critical periods, records were either kept secret or not kept at all. In many parts of China, the leadership still refuses to open records. In the early years under Mao, many Western scholars were so enamored with Mao that they refused to believe such widespread atrocities could have been carried out by the Chinese Communists....."

    Mick Jagger is far smarter than people give him credit for. See what he did there--he wasn't supporting Maoism. He was calling out Chairman Mao for whom he took after. He is quite the capitalist himself, and now is even a "Sir" (a low level non-hereditary British Lord--KBE I think).

    "But the Rolling Stones’ Paris concert was Maoism’s biggest popular outing. July, who, with Sartre, later co-founded the newspaper Libération, asked the throng to support French fellow-Maoists facing imprisonment for their beliefs. There was a standing ovation, and then Mick Jagger launched into “Sympathy for the Devil.”"

    If Japan hasn't already secretly developed it's own nuclear weapons, they're not as smart as I thought they were.
