China's rising is completely changing the life of the humanity. China now masters some high-tech and is willing and capable of putting such know-how at the service of the whole humanity at affordable cost.

Take 5G as an example, without China, it will take the world decades
to enter the 5G era and the cost would be doubled.

If  China hadn't mastered high-speed railway technology, China wouldn't have been able to meet its own vast needs of internal transportation and its economy wouldn't have been able to develop so fast.
1/5 of humanity benefitted from such tech know-how.

It wouldn't have been possible for China to export high-speed railway to many developing countries at relative low cost.

Japan's first high speed railway Shinkansen was built in 1964,
but who has heard that Japan's Shinkansen has been popularized? In reality, Japan's operating high-speed railroad only accounts for 10% of the total railroad mileage whereas for China it is now 30%. Which developing country has it been exported to?
The Indian project has been abandoned.

Whereas since the opening of China's first high-speed railway Beijing-Tianjin Intercity line in 2008, just within 12 years, China has built close to 40,000 km of high-speed rail not only in China but in several countries,
including Russia, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Mexico, Turkey, Laos, etc.

China is different in that it is capable enough to defy America and take an independent path of technological development. US has made sure that no country shall be technologically more advanced than itself.
China has provided an alternative model of technological survival. There are many technological powers in the world, such as Germany, South Korea, Japan, France, Israel etc, but these countries are unable to go beyond a certain set point.
They are unable to popularize their tech advance for the whole humanity. The US has "set" a ceiling for them.

Thirty years ago, the Japanese semiconductor industry was making one breakthrough after another to the great alarm of the US who did everything it could to kill it,
like what the US is doing to China today. If Japan were allowed to continue their technological development, Japan might be able to greatly lower the cost of chips and the application would be more extensive.
It's as if another country had the power to contain the US and nipped in the bud the internet and all the US Internet companies. What a loss for humanity!

If it were not for Chinese infrastructure building and manufacturing,
many places in Africa would not even have electricity now, let alone having access to Internet connection and cell phones.

Now US has imposed chip ban on China. Assuming that China fails to compete in the chip industry and fails to produce its own chips,
it is no exaggeration to say that it will be a major loss for all of humanity, because retarding China's development is equivalent to weakening the overall welfare level of the entire humanity.

Killing BRI is killing all chances of development of poor countries.
This is what the US-China competition amounts to.

A Taiwan professor is warning Taiwanese not to answer the ads of CIA to become CIA anti-China spies. China's counter intelligence is formidable. Pretty much upon spies' arrival in China, their identities are already known. That's the reason China could Immediately arrest the two
Michaels when circumstances required. Their spy activities were closely monitored.

Spies will spend long years in China's prisons. If your ethnicity is Chinese, the CIA can't care less. The two Michaels are white men, so the CIA treated them fairly and organized succor.
There's no international sympathy for Chinese anti-China spies.

Taiwan declared that 3000 heroes have sacrificed their lives for democracy in their spy missions on the Mainland meaning these spies were exposed, imprisoned and abandoned. When Taiwan spies are released from

At least 12 Chinese have been elected Chiefs in Nigeria. It's a way for the locals to retain the involvement of the Chinese personalities in local affairs once a project (mainly railway) is finished. Some are honorary, some have real powers to run a domain.
This chief is the head of Confucius Institute. Being a chief, they have a say in the local affairs. They usually mobilize funds to build schools and other useful minor projects of public welfare. Every village wants a Chinese chief. 😄
One Chinese engineer has become arbiter of village disputes. He was so respected that he was granted the title of chief. Even after he has gone back to China, he has his deputy representatives administer the village affairs on his behalf. He comes back once a year to audit.

Chinese people are amazed America can't even solve a minor insignificant problem like this, while China's ports are automated requiring only 10 people to operate.
China's social media is warning Chinese not to underestimate America. It might be retarded in some areas, but is still a powerful enemy... 🤔

Let's feel sorry for Kyle Bass who will lose US$30 million in November for his unfortunate attempt to short Hong Kong dollar. He leveraged his bet 200 times, so all those who lent him money for the political gamble will see their money vaporize.…
Kyle Bass styles himself after George Soros and expected to win where Soros failed. He betted the democracy loving Hong Kong residents will be so disgusted with the national security law that they will pull up their stakes and flee Hong Kong in fright and panic.
causing the free fall of Hong Kong dollar. Unfortunately for him, the Hong Kong dollar soared after the national security law which secured the value of Hong Kong dollar and guaranteed the continued prosperity of Hong Kong. Bass is the financial martyr of democracy.

Latin America's US$ trap explained:

US$ supremacy means it's an international currency. In many countries, US$ can come in & leave as it likes. Thus emerging economies are extremely vulnerable to US$ movements which US Federal Reserve can manipulate through interest rate.
Thus, US can program the cyclical economic prosperity and crisis in many countries. Both are useful for the US to reap the accumulated wealth of countries.

Have you wondered why US stops at no means to make every country adopt market economy allowing unrestricted
capital movements? When US talks about freedom, it's the free capital flow they have in mind. That's the politically correct way for a country to exist in this world, because only this can enable US$ capital to control the world.

How you wondered why developing

According to locals, Xinjiang is the birthplace of oriental carpets (Iranians, don't kill me. I'm quoting Uighurs) which are Xinjiang's main export commodities. In the Uighur town Kashgar, a whole street is dedicated to carpets. Best pieces are on display in museums.
So far, the Victoria and Arabia Museum in London, the Textile Museum in Washington, D.C., and the Handicraft Museum in Frankfurt, Germany, all have Xinjiang wool carpets or silk carpets in their collections as treasures on display for visitors to admire.
Iranian carpet dealers confirmed to me Chinese Xinjiang carpets are extremely competitive in the international market of oriental carpets. I suspect the carpets in their shops are probably.... better keep my mouth shut. 😃
