China & an October Surprise
[Tech Guy Blog] I’ve been thinking about the China seed story and something stuck me.

China has plenty of problem, a food crisis, an infection crisis, concentration camps and the three gorges dam on the brink all of these things cause internal problems.

Even worse their purchase of pols, reporters, businessmen, colleges, athletic teams and players internationally has been unable to stop their decline in influence externally thanks to the covid/wuhan/ccp virus which they generously gave to the world.

Communist dictatorships usually teeter over time. China as a communist state has now been around 71 years which is about as long as the Soviet state lasted (1917-1991 74 years) and now not only are they facing internal threats they are now facing the the single biggest external threat China’s Communist government has ever seen.

Donald Trump.

#4  All good things must come to an end, and all bad things must come to an end. It's all about cycles.

#3  Totalitarians. The details don’t matter, just the fact that totalitarian states are too brittle to survive black swan events, or even the accumulation of white swans — and there always is an accumulation of white swans followed by the unknown unknowns that are black swans.

“Communist state” is shorthand for the entirely of the above.

#2  Fascist State. Feel better? Or even more accurately, National Socialist State with Behind the Curtains Communist Ideology (NSSBCCI, doesn't roll off the tongue like Nazi)..

#1  Typically obnoxious. Why these Americans don't see what it is in front of their eyes, only words matter like: "Communist State"

Which is irrelevant, they certainly aren't a controlled economy with 5 years plans that make stuff no one wants except weapons like Soviet Union.
