👥👥 OVERPOPULATION? 👥👥

Anybody saying “there’s too many people” is by definition MISANTHROPIC.

And intellectually lazy. If this girl‘s a #ClimateChange activist, a less lazy statement would be “people/tech are too inefficient.” That‘d give her a logical escape route… (1/4)
… that doesn’t involve “population reduction” (read: mass murder, a #OneChildPolicy/#TwoChildPolicy of forced abortions & sterilizations, etc.).

“Overpopulation” is a myth or — at least — a very sad, sick, & even evil way of diminishing the value of human life… (2/4)
… MOREOVER, while #China DOESN’T have “too many people,” they DO have too much LAND.

What the Chinese Communist Party (#CCP) today calls “China” is an amalgamation of STOLEN land. #EastTurkistan, #Tibet, #Ningxia, #SouthMongolia, #Manchuria, #HongKong & others areas… (3/4)

Afin d'éviter toute confusion, j'ai supprimé un précédent tweet de statistiques qui prenait en compte des données qui ont été révisées à la baisse en raison de l'ajustement des méthodes de comptage des cas confirmés de #Coronavirus #COVID19

Thread on China's new defense white paper, China's National Defense in the New Era. This WP has just been released by the @chinascio. Press conference is happening now.

Thanks to you know who you are.

#China #PLA
@chinascio WP starts off with Section 1 looking at the "International Security Situation", highlighting that the world is undergoing changes "unseen in a century" with "prominent destabilizing factors and uncertainties in international security".

"The world is not yet a tranquil place".
@chinascio What are the profound changes as seen by China that is transforming the international strategic landscape?

Most prominently, WP points out the acceleration of the "realignment of international powers" with the "configuration of strategic power...becoming more balanced"

Occam's Razor perspective indicates that such complexity is doubtful.

My 1st Master's degree focused on Chinese Intel & Military Ops under a spook & a now-retired general. I researched & wrote on Huawei intensively.

US MIC & #DeepState r in a death-struggle w/ #PRC #CCP #PLA &
despite all of the puffery of the strength of our military, the PRC is gaining more rapidly in power than the US. #DeepState & US MIC are in a pretty tough fight.

We also have to worry about Russia (and Iran) siding with China should a conflict develop between US & PRC
I wrote this back in August of 2016, regarding the danger of a China-Iran-Russia, tripartite military alliance.

The 340 page dissertation I did for my Ph.D. focused on Chinese military and industrial operations.

Comme promis un #thread sur les #biberons. Je vais parler matériaux parce que l’utilisation est à peu près la même. L’ACV dépendra surtout de l’origine du matériau. Et le choix du type de biberon (plastique, verre...) est assez difficile ⬇️⬇️
Je pense que ce qui va suivra va vous apprendra pas mal de choses
Ce que je trouve étonnant c’est que l’analyse que je vais vous faire je ne la retrouve pas sur internet. Pour la petite histoire j'avais fait cette analyse pour mon premier il y a 8 ans 😇
On commence par un point sur le Bisphenol A (ou BPA). Il y a peu de plastiques qui en contiennent. Généralement : PVC et polycarbonate, sachant que depuis quelques années on ne les retrouve pas sur le marché, que ce soit pour des biberons ou des produits génie civil.

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

China will try to avoid military adventurism because of the lesson highlighted by American examples. But in the yrs ahead, it will find itself pulled towards foreign military entanglements because of its rapid expanding interests and footprint around the world.

1/ BRI routes
China's military, #PLA, is increasingly called upon to protect China's interests around the globe, including along the routes of the #BRI with its share of unstable polities. The rapid modernisation of the #PLA will enable China to project power much more effectively

2/
The combination of the demand for #PLA to project its power in advancing China's interests globally as well as its modernising capabilities mean that the #PLA will be more likely than ever to be pulled into a foreign military entanglement.
