    As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.

    Yeah, seeing the stupid here, I can believe it.
    Tbh, as I see it, the only real difference between the US model and the Chinese in this particular is the amount of time it took to get here.

    Looks like the current modeling doesn't favor a Trump win. Assuming it's a good predictor, ofc.

    Like, if Trump is getting 35% of the popular vote then he's losing Texas at that point. It's possible it happens but we'd need to go into a depression for that reality to come to fruition.

    So it seems like Trump is saying he won't shut the country down in the face of a second Coronavirus wave. =|
    Not sure if I should take this seriously or not.

    Uh. He fought tooth and nail against shutting it down the first time. And one of his most enduring tendencies is to straight up deny and lie about bad news even when its blindingly apparent he is doing so. You think he would ever be willing to admit things were getting worse right before the election?

    The only reason Beijing allows that much in Hong Kong in the past is due to the need of setting a good example to Taiwan and in fear of Western backed retaliations. Since relations are pretty much rock bottom with Taiwan, and USA is playing around with bills that will directly interfere in Hong Kong affairs which is a big no to China, there is no longer a need to open and close one eye at Hong Kong's actions. Just like how Spain dealt with the Catalan movement, China will eventually do the same to Hong Kong. Only difference is the west stay quiet on Catalan, but will bitch about Hong Kong.

    Uh, sure, buddy.

    The only way something remotely similar to China's handling of HK might happen in Spain would involve the UK giving back Gibraltar, which ain't happening.

    Catalonia situation has very little in common.

    The recent one where they had a referendum for independence from Spain which is crushed pretty quickly seems familiar IMO.

    Mhmm. That would be much the same as saying, for example, that Muslims should be allowed to surveil, kidnap, imprison, anuse, and indoctrinate members of the general population of China due to the treatment of the Kazakhs and Uighurs. Or that they have the right to imprison and disenfranchise Israelis en masse due to the treatment of the Palestinians. Or that the Yazidis should be allowed to rape and butcher Sunnis. Or that the Native Americans and African Americans should be allowed to use biological and chemical weapons and enslave white people. The list goes on and on and on throughout history

    The idea is to not sink to that level.

    Within reason, I'd say. Blanket applications of "forgive and forget" tend to only benefit those in power, who also tend to be the same group who pulled all that shit throughout history in the first place, and in many cases *still* pull that shit.

    Right. I said nothing about letting it slide. Just not also becoming a human failure.
