>>469080>China doesn't care about US sanctions because when they happen, they hurt the US more.
true>US will never actually sanction China at this point.
The US has already put high-tech sanction on China, you meant the level of sanction they put on Russia. If they are rational they won't do that, but there's no guaranty that they're rational.>>469081>China could sanction the US though if they really want to implode the country and establish global clout. That won't happen though.
I think China won't try to smash the US because they don't really care about anything outside of China beyond keeping the international environment stable. In Chinese eyes the US's attempts at dominating the world have lead to too much instability. They won't copy US methods because they think the results are bad.>>469083>Ruling logic in US geopolitics is to let China "peacefully rise" rather than violently rise.
A not insignificant part of the US ruling class wants to provoke a war with China, at the moment they're trying to make Taiwan into a sacrificial proxy for that war. I think that they will probably fail, and China will rise peacefully, but it's by no means a certainty.>>469083>Everything about the US' specialization, shifts in education, establishment of a slave society, points to this being the strategy. You wouldn't be able to pull off the big cybernetics projects without a formal slave society being normal and accepted.
You mean the gig-economy ?, the social relations in that are closer to feudal lord and serf than slave-society master and slave. You are probably correct about ruling class intentions, but neither feudal nor slave societies can persist in a world that already has capitalist and lower-stage-socialist societies.
You are also neglecting the possibility that it's possible to build a cybernetic socialism, that wouldn't require subjugating people to formal slavery, quite the contrary it would probably result in a society with the least amount of subjugation.
