Some more thoughts about the Coronavirus


 

The Chinese Century

China will be coming out of the problems due to the Covid 19 virus before the USA.  Right now the USA looks like it is in real trouble medically and financially.  China will fill the vacuum left by the major decline of the USA.  

The world’s experience with democracy is ending

Democracies are struggling to cope with the changes that globalization and technology are creating. Democracies are short term oriented and what is needed now is long term thinking. This is another reason that it will be the Chinese Century.

We have been preparing for the wrong wars

The USA has been spending a large percentage of its budget making sure we could fight WWIII. We have an army and weapons not because we need them now but because we could need them to fight a future war. We have to look at Virus the same way. We need to be prepared for that war.

Some good may come out of all this

We will learn that we do not have to travel as much or even need offices. This will help our planet. The trend towards online retail, home delivery of meals etc will continue and accelerate.

It is time to reevaluate what is really important in our lives

It is the people you love and that love you.

Because of the former single child rule.they will have too many old people that are supported by too few young people. Also thier government is one of thee most cur

    • Thanks for your comments. I understand what you are saying about the demographics but I see it differently. China is colonizing much of Asia and Africa where there are a lot of young people that can do their work for them.

      I hope you and Alice stay safe during this difficult time.
