    They’ve also taken over Vancouver and Toronto. The average one bedroom apartment in Toronto is 2300 now.

    They have decimated the housing market in Vancouver.

    Yes it sucks that after all these centuries of border tranquility, some country would have the nerve to have citizens pay foreigners for their property in posh neighborhoods. Fucking savage invaders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They buy the homes but don’t live in them. It’s a way for them to hoard money offshore displacing actual Canadian citizens.

    China wants regional hegemony (Asian hegemony) then global hegemony.
    They are acting a lot like European Colonial powers from days gone by.

    Internal domination with facial recognition, social identity markers, and a whole lot of "black shirts" on the streets.

    Public security has gone up (visibly) about 5fold since my last visit.

    Externally, they are trying to dominate the Pacific region with a lot of investment in regional neighbors to subvert their politics (it is largely effective,) and to bully other neighbors, somewhat effectively.

    There is a lot of "hidden" instability, however, and whispers on the same streets. A lot of analysts have been predicting the inevitability or doom of the Technocratic Red Guards of the Middle Kingdom for a long time.

    I am not willing to make a prediction yet, except in one word - change - is coming.

    I agree, except it is not tempered by any niceties of Christendom or Humanistic impulses.

    The Middle Kingdom never went from pagan, to Christian, to Enlightenment, to Nietzschean.

    The ancient pre-historical roots grew Confucian vines, and these horny (meant to type thorny, left it as horny because its tragically hilarious, like a little man grinding up a rhino horn for a boner, which in French is bone-ar!) growths were, will, and are now being used by emperors to strangle the less powerful.

    We think of power entirely differently, without devoting many pages of text... maybe we can think of it this way:

    Their view of power is like Machiavelli never had to explain "pragmatic," power in "The Prince," rather "The Prince," never had his Magna Carta and rules and is respected for crushing minorities, rebels, and competing ideas via the Party's raw power.

    They use the gavel to crush, and only consider the optics if the optics get out of control... that's a beginning of understanding.

    And that is why China is a global and civilization threat, just like Islam. But I would put Islam as far far more of a threat than China.
    My impression of the CCP Chinese society is that they don't give a shit about humanitarian ideals, empathy , compassion or treating people fair. To the CCP and Chinese society selfishness and survival of the fittest is the only guiding philosophy.

    Your joke is in poor taste, and you should feel bad, I know you don't, but "YOU" should.
    They think the Chinese are taking over, and ruining their Country. That's what their Country wants them to think, aka America Junior.
    Do you ever stop, and think about people other than yourself? You're a close-minded person, I'm not defending Islam or the CCP. But you are clueless if you think the West truly cares about that.

    It is very sad that a 5th generation Vancouverite cannot afford to live in a city that his family helped build.
    The Canadian government has been very irresponsible regarding this. I believe there has been some progress in Vancouver, something along the lines of "rent out your empty house or pay a hefty tax". I am not sure at which stage the initiative is at but I'm sure I've read about it.

    They have done the bare minimum in an attempt to save face. Globalists have ravished this nation and left it to rot.

    Global domination. The only one with balls enough to try and stop it is Trump.
