    ... Or something close to it.

    Any takes on Xi's grab for consolidation of absolute power? He makes Putin look like a gnat and it matters because within the next couple of decades the PRC is on course to usurp the United States economically, militarily, scientifically and technologically unless there's some very serious redressing done immediately. In a lot of ways, it's essentially making what already exists official by way of constitutional amendment and it would seem has overwhelming support - from the party governing the one-party superpower state.

    Nevertheless, over Xi's first five years in office the PRC's economy has expanded by more than 50 percent, created 66 million new urban jobs and lifted 68 million people from poverty. China is of course, a homogeneous 'civilization-state' of ruthless national ambition and zero time for the sort of often daft domestic sociopolitical offerings the Western world perpetually eats its own face over and people moan incessantly about, but the flipside is pretty dark.

    Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    The Chinese system is doomed to corruption, and eventual collapse. It is the cost of its centralized and efficient structure.

    Democracy is messy, and ineffecient, but within a checked and balanced legal system where all are subject to the rule of law, you have a system that will last.

    Too bad us yanks lost the rule of law part of it.

    Trump's commentary earlier this week on this was staggeringly stupid, and yeah he rides the Han dick pretty hard. Clown-In-Chief never passes up an opportunity to make a complete ass out of the United States in his representation of it. The White House budget proposal across the board for the country's scientific agencies and institutions are crippling to America's ability to maintain its global lead in STEM and throwing tens of countless billions more into the bloated pork barrell that is the DoD isn't going to necessarily make the country any stronger there either. China is already ahead with the next-gen security and defense tech, such as with the recent breakthroughs in QKD although there are caveats.

    The Chinese has a huge momentum maybe in 10 years they can match US millitary interms of Hardware but they haven't participated in any major conflicts since the Sino-Vietmin war let alone a world war they better not get too cocky as they can drag dowm the whole region if they will try some stupid move.

    No political system lasts forever, democracy or authoritarian. Rise and fall are both natural cycles of history.

    Ours was designed to fall, and rise from the ashes here in the US.

    Maybe in future history. The trap is that it works in the short term.

    In terms of general STEM for the time being, the USA's global dominance in fundamental and applied research is still pretty jaw-dropping but China has already surpassed it where late development spending is concerned which is the stage of systematic use of knowledge that turns discoveries and technological breakthroughs into the manufacturing of products and processes. In a lot of ways, they're basically getting a free ride off US investment.

    The public/private system of innovation that has served America so well since World War II has been slowing down and there's a lot of friction these days between academia and private industry, not to mention corporations becoming risk-averse (sans pharma and bio-tech) whereas in the PRC a lot of tech companies are state-owned so there's not a whole lot of concern about R&D spending yielding losses until a product can become commercialized.

    I see the Ping leading the nation until he dies and maybe his sucessor will last too but it is highly unlikely their huge party will have members that can weight that long to be in the leadership.

    This is good. Infighting in a one party country is good. Let them fight.

    oh yeah good for us, fuck the PRC and their debt trap colonialism!

    I just fear the ecconomic fallout from a catastrophic breakdown of the Chinese hegemony will affect us too weather we like China or not.


    But I guess
    Heneral Luna will be like!

    Even economically... the average American is still 10x better off than the average Chinese

    You have yet to experience a fall. It's just your American exceptionalism talking. You can't escape the cycle of history. It does not care for your nationality.

    Funny I just read a dystopian post-apocalyptic book where China/American conflict plays a big part in tanking the world. It’s made me think a lot about it. They aren’t at a place to really directly threaten the US but with their economic tentacles stretching out all over the world and that huge population, their hacking/spy network, an absolute ruler could really mix up the international stage a while he’ll of a lot.
