Philippine Maoists go after the post-Mao capitalist Chinese neo-colonial state. History has come full circle.

(11/x) And another (also depressing) answer: with the Party plenum opening next week, if Xi was seeking to raise himself up yet higher in the Party pantheon (Chairman Xi?) - might the threat (or reality) of military conflict help him in that pursuit?

(10/x) Of course, big question is: why do all this now? One possible (and depressing) answer: if someone in Beijing desired (or at least wanted to threaten) overt military conflict with U.S. over, say, Taiwan, they might want to signal to P.R.C. population this might be coming.

This was the same last year too. Actually it might have been the same for several years now.

The Financial Times isn't exactly a raging public health advocate. They conclude, based on data: Places that control the virus by protecting their people also protect their economy. Paraphrasing Carville, to protect the economy, it's the pandemic, stupid.

Stephen McDonell, is one of the few Western journalists that while working for the anti-China media establishment, still provides details and nuance on what is actually happening in China.. interesting listen from 6.25.

From 06.30 onwards explains why Hong Kong protesters, Falun Gong and senior Chinese officials all favour a Trump re-election. China produces strange political bedfellows when it comes to America

“A huge reason that our politics is not so extremely polarised and so far out there is because we no longer have any Murdoch-owned press” // Why New Zealand rejected populist ideas other nations have embraced

"In the upper echelons of the CCP, some think the Trump presidency has been brilliant for China... they believe the Trump admin is not only undermining the entire western project... but feel that the chaos of the US under Trump makes their country appear to be a sea of stability"

Insightful that pro China / CCP and anti both support Trump. Trumps chaos is good for China to continue its rise
