    This was a pleasant sight to see, hopefully a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    Interesting.

    Maybe the manufacturing sector will be a larger part of the American and Chinese economies but I don't think China is fucked. After all, their economy is more malleable than their American counterparts. If I recall, the majority of their economy is state-owned.

    Yeah that was hyperbole on my part - I meant in terms of the balance of global trade.

    The thing with China is that they're so huge that economic isolation for them and their client states (in e.g. Africa) wouldn't be a bad strategy (unlike Russia), so yeah you're right - they have a lot of redundancy, growth inertia, control and 'mass' to be able to survive some serious shocks.

    The thing is, they're already using some of their structural control to keep things ticking over, by continuing dead projects/&c. which generally get referred to as 'ghost cities/whatever' in Western media. There are scores of public Chinese workers literally going to work every day to do... nothing. They're deep into a vast Keynesian hole right now and this is a structural weakness that's only growing as far as I've seen (though I'm no Sinologist).

    I think these ghost cities are eventually going to be filled. To me, it seems like the Chinese government is preparing for housing needs that will eventually arise with increased prosperity.

    What do you think of Thomas Sankara in the context of France?

    I consider him French in a sense because of his nation's historical context. He reminds me of Napoleon but was killed early.

    Oh boy. Reminds me a little of a man I worked for. I won't go into his arguments as they were just demeaning and wrong.

    Has anyone gotten more or less agreeable with age? I've learned that arguments don't really change people's minds.

    Action counts for more in this world.

    I wouldn't say less agreeable, but rather more skeptical. True @ Actions counts for more.

    Democracy! I love democracy!

    I like the idea of democracy in two spheres: work and government. A big problem I've found is that the great majority of businesses are organized in a vertical top-down structure- structural tyrannies.

    Problematic... because democracy in government is about consent (to be governed) rather than competence. If you wanted to design a system to choose the best statesman in the country, it wouldn't be democracy.

    In business, the focus is more on competence/effectiveness in producing whatever good it happens to be. What value is democracy here?

    Unless you're implying that the world of work is so intrinsic to our lives that tyranny here is indistinguishable from political tyranny, in which case you have a point.

    Actually.. it's 2 things.

    Words + Action

    When you're words line up like arrows with your actions.. then & only then do we have an honest chatacter to show for. Which should honestly be easy behaviour for honest beings.
