    A road strewn with obstacles, yet ambitious enough to change the world and, most of all, China.


    As pointed out, great risks, but could have great rewards. A transcontinental railway had never been built before, and to start that project in a nation torn by a bitter civil war looked to be insane, but we did it. And the Interstate Highway System was a very costly project, indeed, but has paid it way many times over. The Apollo Project was our last great risk, we were successful, and part of the payback is the very system we are using to communicate. If we do not remember how to dream big in the near future, we will have ceded the leadership of the world to the Chinese. And they will have earned it.

    Loserterinaism is a huge fail. I know for a fact that following the model of mid evil europe with barons and smerfs is fucking dumb.

    China is using its wealth to beat our ass.

    All this while the US retreats within it's own borders and tries to shut off the rest of the world. Not a good combination.

    And by the time it's done, China will declare of all of Asia, the Middle East and Europe as belonging to China.
    Because China doesn't build artificial islands and claim the closet nation to that island belongs to China.

    China is massively overleveraged. We used to be afraid of Japan, and China is making the same mistakes.
