At the 20th Party Congress, Xi the Jinping gave us a vision of a superpower rising to conquer the world. What is the reality?
Remember the times when Xi the Jinping shouted from the rooftops that the Chinese system is better than all the other systems? He mocked at democracies like India and USA which seemed incapable of tackling the the virus. china had opened up and was having poolside parties. Zero Covid was touted as the successful communist alternative to lumbering democracies. the Chinese vaccines were to save the world from the Virus. Today the boot is firmly on the other foot.
The lumbering democracies are loafing around freely. China is masked, locked down, quarantined and undergoing mass testing. There are protests. the economy is headed firmly in the south. USA, UK , Canada and EU are blowing the headwinds China is facing. India is emerging as an alternate to China. Even the Chinese might turn to India for vaccines. Only India has the scale to give vaccines to China. However that’s another matter.
In this edition of a Peek Into Everyday China, the picture is of a sorry superpower. The headlines from SCMP say so.
ALL TIME HIGHS !
MOMENT OF TRUTH!
THE I PHONE SAGA CONTINUES…MORE THAN A MONTH NOW !
THE PROTESTS WILL BE QUELLED…HAVE NO DOUBT…INDICATES WIDESPREAD DISSATISFACTION. OMINOUS.
THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT GOOD NEWS FOR THE PLAN. IMAGINE A CARRIER GROUP HANGING AROUND SOUTH CHINA SEAS AND TAIWAN.
USA, UK, CANADA AND EU….ALL NOT HAPPY WITH CHINA…ALL RICH NATIONS…ALL SUFFERING FROM INFLATION AND UKARINE WAR EFFORTS. WHERE WILL CHINESE EXPORTS GO?
COMMON PROSPERITY …WAITING FOR MORE SHADES OF XI’S GREAT IDEA.
INDIA CAN START WITH VACCINES FOR CHINA. THE MAJOR QUESTION IS…WHAT IS THE PRICE INDIA WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS…LET US NOT JUMP OVER THE MOON.
EXPORTS AND CONSUMPTION ….BOTH ARE HIT…DUAL CIRCULATION SEEMS TO TURNING INTO DUAL NON CIRCULATION
LOT OF LESSONS FOR CHINA
