The Two Great Geopolitical Elections:  China in 2014-15; Russia in 2022-23 (March 20, 2023)

. . .

K          “China in 2014 – 15.  Russia in 2022 – 23.”

J          “China won resoundingly.  Russia is losing convincingly.”

K          “China won resoundingly.  Russia is winning convincingly.  The U.S. lost astoundingly.  0 – 2 on the international stage.  Sad.  It did not have to be this way.”

. . .

K          “Not a person I have talked with over the last five years is even vaguely aware that in 2014 – 2015 the Chinese held a world-wide election to determine which countries sought to align with China via the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and which countries sought instead to align with the United States.”

J          “China won resoundingly.  Few realize it.  I get it.  We are in trouble.”

. . .

K          “World War E / World War III is forcing a world-wide ‘Oxford Union Debate’ with most the nations of the world surreptitiously slipping out through the ‘East’ (BRICS+ and OPEC+ and Shanghai Cooperation Organisation) door and repudiating the West.”

J          “Russia is losing.  The West is winning.  Look at the vote of the United Nations General Assembly a few weeks ago.”

K          “That’s the point.  On the record, the nations must capitulate and kowtow to the Evil Hegemon.  But look at their actions.  They are quietly realigning.  Actions, as they say, speak louder than words.  The payback fueled by simmering resentment in the next fifty years will be Hell.”
