Re << I don't really think China cares either way >>

I am guessing the same, because China is only doing what China does out of imperatives from which solutions arise. The imperatives are the freedom to live, eat, be housed, educated, to learn, earn, save, invest, and engage in free and unhindered trade with others, and not start wars, and be not bullied. In its 6,000 years of history (well, okay, 5,000 or 4,500) China has done very few wars compared to almost all other states of far younger age. Some folks view that as a weakness, whereas it is but the Star Trek prime directive, first practiced by Admiral Zheng He on an international scale.

Heretofore we have only referred to 2032 Darkest Interregnum, a possibility, in a sort of theoretical and distant happening, but as the years progressed we close in on the time marker as the prerequisites for the happening come together,

Now we start getting warnings, for we are getting close, Interregnum, straight ahead ...



The “Darkest” is a necessary adjective, whereas just “Dark” won’t do, because Interregnums tends to be dark.

The deep-state fully understand what is happening and why, and have noted the recent acceleration, but fail to grasp at the proper, for the greater-good, response, and that be engagement. Instead the deep-state wishes to maintain the status quo, thinking the status quo is the best state.

The U.S. intelligence community predicts an increasingly leaderless and unstable world in the coming decades as trends such as artificial intelligence, digital currencies and climate change reshape the global arena, according to the National Intelligence Council.

The coming decades will be characterized by a mismatch between global challenges and “the ability of institutions and system to respond,” according to “Global Trends 2040: A More Contested World.” The result will be “greater contestation at every level” -- especially between the U.S. and China.

What the deep-state does not realize is that China is only the messenger for the arrival of the Interregnum, and China can split off to own continental-scale civilization-state with little negative consequence and keep doing what China does, but that isolation, and it would not actually be isolation, would consolidate the parallel universe hived / hard-forked away, but only lengthening the duration of the Darkest Interregnum of the ‘normal’ universe.

The trajectories sending us into the 2032 D.K. is not compelled by China. The forces are all within the Universe as we know it (TwawKi), deep inside, insidiously doing damaging work. 3 trillion dollars just got tee-ed up to accelerate the damaging work, and so we stay with 2026 TeoTwawKi.

China does not compel in the way the USSR / Russia and USA do, and UK, France, Germany, Japan, etc etc etc did. China does own thing with folks who get along to get along. Interactions with China in any confrontational ways would of course be both costly and fruitless, and in cases of mismatch of scale, toxic to fatal. Territorial integrity is a separate issue, along with self-determination of the civilization-state per Confucius schema of orderliness.

Interactions in cooperative ways extends the time to D.I.

Without China backstop, 2008 would have turned out different, and 2020 even more different. In the earlier case, global calm restored and G7 had an opportunity for respite as it set about dealing and still; dealing with 2008. In the second case China showed one approach, less costly approach, to deal with what nature unleashed, without panic, confusion and without political weaponisation.

The global corporations on the stock exchanges? Unsure. The opening move this year is to make sure they shall be weakened no matter where they hide. They are economic entities alive, and they will find a way or perish, because that is what living entities do.

Gold, hydrogen-economy tokens (Pt &Pd), and silver will make it. Bitcoins will at least make part of the journey. But if Bitcoin makes pass the valley then USD 500K a reasonable target, and perhaps even conservative depending on what happens to USD.

Everything else? Do not know.

Casper might make it as it is China-okay-ed but US operated, even as it is very much decentralized.

What the deep-state thinks of as threats are opportunities, every single one.

The ill-thought out responses to the opportunities are what shall accelerate folks towards TeoTwawKi, and once there making sure the Interregnum is Darkest and long, as opposed to dusky and short.

Putting the emphasis on China China China is misdiagnosing whatever is happening.

For example, the belief that increasing immigration into already complicated societies would somehow demographically compete against China China China as recently positioned and featured on Bloomberg is likely asking for trouble. Follow that sloganeering, and follow Rome. History rationale remains the same.

Too many examples, many featured on Bloomberg.

Watch & brief.

U.S. Spy Agencies Warn of Threats From Digital Currency to AI

The U.S. intelligence community predicts an increasingly leaderless and unstable world in the coming decades as trends such as artificial intelligence, digital currencies and climate change reshape the global arena, according to the National Intelligence Council.

The coming decades will be characterized by a mismatch between global challenges and “the ability of institutions and system to respond,” according to “Global Trends 2040: A More Contested World.” The result will be “greater contestation at every level” -- especially between the U.S. and China.

Read the full “Global Trends” report here.

Here are some of the trends cited in the latest edition of the report that’s published every four years:

Debt pressures: National governments will have “reduced flexibility” to deal with challenges such as climate change in the face of growing debt burdens and increasingly diverse trading rules.

Digital currencies: The U.S. dollar and the euro will face threats from digital currencies such as Bitcoin. “Privately issued digital currencies could add complexity to the conduct of monetary policy by reducing countries’ control over their exchange rates and money supply,” the report says.

Climate pressure: Climate change will drive social divisions within states and exacerbate international tensions. It will worsen water insecurity as well as increase pressures for migration.

Assertive China: Although the report says “no single state” will be able to dominate “all regions or domains,” intensified U.S. competition with China runs through its pages. The Asian superpower will look to “assert dominance in Asia,” press U.S. allies to “restrict U.S. basing access,” and move Taiwan “closer to reunification by 2040, possibly through sustained and intensive coercion.”

New ways of war: Increased competition between states will result in further nuclear proliferation and an increased risk of interstate conflict. Artificial intelligence will “enhance the performance of existing weapons, defenses, and systems.”

Space race: By 2040, China will be the U.S.’s most formidable rival in space. By that time it’s likely to have its “own set of foreign partners participating in Chinese-led space activities” and its BeiDou satellite navigation system will probably be in use around the world as an alternative to the Pentagon-backed GPS.

Permanent populism: “Polarization along ethnic, religious, and ideological lines is likely to remain strong,” and this is likely to “reinforce political dysfunction” and “heighten risks of political instability.”

AI-powered propaganda: The proliferation of digital technologies and advances in artificial intelligence will open the door for both states and non-state actors to “influence populations, including by ratcheting up cognitive manipulation and societal polarization,” the report says.
