It’s also an economic necessity now. Having cut themselves off from Russian energy it’s no longer viable to produce things in Europe, so all the businesses are now fleeing to China.

With the “re-election”, if that is the right word, of Xi Jinping as President for an unprecedented third term, China’s ruling Communist Party has taken an increasingly authoritarian turn. It has clamped down on any form of democracy in Hong Kong, promoting tens of thousands of people to flee the territory, while using Zero Covid as a way of controlling its own population, and has been aggressively bullying Taiwan into submission with threatening military exercises, while supporting Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

Every sentence man.

It is still possible that as it grows wealthier, China will follow South Korea and gradually turn into a liberal, democratic state.

lol

In response, the US has been preparing to defend itself against a resurgent and powerful China. It has beefed up support for Taiwan, preparing to defend the island with force if necessary.

LOL

Reading between the lines shows that EU has little choice but to become reliant on China economically at this point. Back when EU had abundance of cheap energy from Russia, it was possible to be economically independent, that option is gone now.
