Former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis seems to think so. Here he is schooling some random Karen out of her anti-Chinese hysteria. The Chinese are actually treating the people of the global south better than the Americans are.
It’s something to keep in mind as the Trump regime tries to foment conflict over Hong Kong. At this point, I think, I hope anybody can see the hypocrisy of the American elites. While militarized big city police forces in the USA are beating down protesters, the American media is trying to paint China as the aggressor in Hong Kong. For what it’s worth, I suppose that if Hong Kong wants to become another Singapore rather than part of mainland China they should have a referendum. But the USA should probably stay out of it. We’re not a benevolent superpower. The last thing we should be doing is wagging our finger at the Chinese or the Russians.
