Yeah I read some of my old etherpad (internal journaling) posts when COVID first hit and never in my wildest dreams did I think US would be the worst affected and that China wouldn't even end up in the top #20 lists...Guys have faith, I was once a non-believer in what we can achieve when covid hit, and western media was saying this was the end or China Bla Bla Bla. But now it looks like this might be end of the US empire. I think as much as the CCp has flaws they have demonstrated their competence in all of this.
I think the CCP is already dedollarizing or preparing to do it, because of threat of losing access to Swift, hence why DCEP is being rolled out.
CCP has been preparing for the SWIFT contingency for a while now, like the TikTok ban it was a matter of time as in When not IF.
Forget the propaganda and rhetoric, this new cold war is the true test of China vs USA, an honest test, and may the best country/system prevail and win out in the end!
