(W.E. Talk) China Mirrors America’s Decline! (30.9.2022)

(ECNS)– The world now is in the toil of profound changes unseen in a century combined with a once-in-a-century pandemic. Grey rhinos and black swans have emerged one after another, flooding the world with uncertainties. Looking into the future, people have expectations and confusion.

However, when the world is itching for cooperation and solidarity, some Western countries put their own interest first by resorting to unilateral sanctions and long-arm jurisdiction, advocating decoupling and chain-breaking, thus building high walls around their small bloc.

As no one had access to the total number except a trusted few – the onus was all about a rapid reconstruction of the Soviet infrastructure (including the building of houses and the caring for the millions of people missing limbs and who had been made disabled etc), and a military preparation for an unprovoked attack from the US and their allies! All this was going on whilst the Soviet Space Programme was developing the technology which would soon shock the world – all under the guidance of the ‘elected’ General Secretary – Joseph Stalin – the last great leader the USSR would have!
