in comparison to the US and its capitalist client states all around the world, they [China] clearly are [a paragon of virtue] if you look at the quality of life statistics

do you have any idea what youre saying when you say it? no shit the US has higher quality of living standards than China, the US is the center of the global imperial core and syphons resources off the rest of the world through colonization and deep exploitation of workers in colonial regions.  im getting so bored of this

How are you going to say that China is a paragon of virtue compared to the US when looking at quality of life statistics (which you don’t even reference for context) and then say that the US has a higher quality of life? And completely ignore that China is doing the same things you claim you despise the US for, such as military bases abroad (in return they grant easy credit and loans), investing in extractive resources and the infrastructure and services to facilitate that extraction, and where freedom of speech is approaching 1984 levels of ridiculousness
There’s a reason that Chinese are emigrating in droves(PDF),and it’s not cause the CCP is looking out for its comrades.

your attempted pseudo-lectures on my personal life choices are inappropriate.  im also not sure why you are assuming i'm not doing this as you speak.  my goal is to retire from wage labor and achieve an agricultural off the grid low environmental impact and low financial requirement existence whereby i can begin performing actual labor to assist in the cause of the proletariat through the advancement of free and open source agriculture software and hardware technologies.  my plans may not be perfect, but socialism is not about personal lifestylism it's about a mass movement of people.  i am a marxist not an anarchist

You’ve used your big word allotment for the day.

it's arguable that WTO/World Bank etc follow agendas of the nations that control them.. not always but often one country or another can put a thumb on the scales to help decide who and who doesn't get loans for development etc. 

 

Which is an interesting claim to make (not saying you're making it) considering China has been one of the largest borrowers and recipient of technical assistance, and have used (or attempted to use) that aid to carry out programs of resettlement and displacement. At the same time, the World Bank's loan conditions have evolved considerably over the years. The authors also note that loans are more dependent on timing as opposed to who the recipient is.

re: the last two pages: actions speak louder than words. words are great but continuously empty words (especially in this era) are...well, they're worthless.

you know what sucks is that the .us (and .uk and .ca) all made unilateral deals for covid vaccines covering those nations more than twice over while other countries (eg. chile) have to wait until those nations are "satisfied" with their supply for it to trickle down to them, or those nations agree to the covax deal (they have agreed to chip in but currently have not yet). by delaying getting vaccinated, they're putting other people in danger that could benefit from having the "luxury" of getting the vaccine

The only attention he deserves is from the US justice system.

i love this because its such excellent proof how private interests literally have more power than the state that the people ostensibly democratically control.  in this case, through a kafkaesque maze of software permissions rules which, since it is abstracted away from visibly human control, can be justified in the minds of those observing it.

      Not sure how I feel about this one. There seems to be a certain satisfaction to this movie but it also makes me uneasy.
