I have a thought experiment I've been wanting some input in. What sort of events could lead to China becoming the economic and military superpower while crippling America and the industrial world?
For instance, China has the ability to control its own currency to an extent unnattainable by western nations.
Can you think of some sort of world-wide financial disaster which would economically cripple everyone but China due to this currency ability (over and undervaluing)?
What other kind of scenarios could lead to MAJOR supremacy of China over America.
Eventually, I'd like to figure out how China might end up occupying America, but first I have to figure this step out.
Really, Wnope, is this your quite thinly-veiled way of expressing your Sinophobia via inciting imaginative, intellectually-masturbatory speculation about how China might one day attain global economic hegemony, leading all the way to an outright military occupation of the U.S.?! Isn't early 21st-century fear of being subjected to Chinese economic dominance just another, updated variation on the old "yellow peril" theme?
At any rate, there is a massive portion of suffering Third-World humanity that would have you know that much of the planet is already under someone's harmful and heartless hegemony, i.e., the global economic supremacy of the American and Western capitalist elite, and that idle conjecturing about how an actually-existing Caucasoid plutocratic world order might one day be replaced by an Asian economic imperialism is of little interest to them. In fact they have no time whatsoever for such idle conjecturing, as they're too occupied trying to survive our
not so benevolent politico-economic tyranny over their lives and lot.
Yo, all of my subliterate conservative criticasters who find perusing and processing the sesquipedalian verbiage of my posts to be such a bothersome brain-taxing chore, I have a new nickname for you. Henceforth you shall be known as Pooh Bears. No, not for the obvious apt reasons, i.e., not because you're full of pooh, and not because of your ursine irritability. Rather, you put me in mind of an A.A. Milne quote, "I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words bother me". Love ya, Pooh Bears.
