    Not really. The First World is in the unique position of having been safe and well fed for many decades. The sheer shock of hunger will be enough to elicit a wildly chaotic (and thus dangerous) response. Those who have intimate knowledge of deprivation have a more pragmatic response - what we would call 'mercenary'. Soft Westerners, whose idea of deprivation is finding KFC is out of drumsticks, will lose their minds.

    It's how I often think of them. Pale, foppish, and living a life carefully currated to exclude anyone tough and/or brown.

    And this is what I imagine them terrified by. All that toxic masculinity and brownness, etc. Homophobes too, no doubt.

    not really, a much weaken russia is not in china interest. china trade more with US/EU, so it prefer stay in the middle. stability in the region is crucial for their belt & road.

    I don't think you're operating in the real world, my Dude. This is absolutely an East vs West 'war'.

    What do those two individuals have to do with the big picture? It's not a parade of personal idiosyncracy .. it's the Great Shift of power from the West to the East.

    Chinese posters in Chinese schools.
    The poster says - "By buying a Russian candy, you can turn it into a bullet against fascism"
