How do the US get Taiwan into WHO when they just quit out? Dumbest move ever.
?It's funny the sort of trash people consider effective propaganda, but then again trash like TikTok took the world by storm. China can't do this sort of thing because it ultimately affirms democracy - why would China produce propaganda about the power of voting to effect change? Even if it did, anything from China would have the opposite effect since it's so easily tarnished by claiming that it's foreign propaganda designed to divide the American people, which it is.
You know, I never once saw Americans lamenting and gnashing their teeth at the fact that their propaganda isn't reaching Chinese people. They couldn't care less, it's just diaspora Chinese that have this unquenchable thirst for China "evangelizing" Westerners. That fetish is getting tiresome.
The United States is banning all Chinese technology from its market and will try to compel other nations to do so as well. If China had a better propaganda apparatus, that would reduce the likelihood of other nations following America's lead on anything.
Ignoring the importance of the global narrative battle is leading directly to China being shut out of important markets, which in turn means less money for innovation! How is this not a strategic issue?
