Colder than the 1960s (28 Oct, 2021)

Postby aardvark_admin » Thu Oct 28, 2021 6:50 am

This column is archived at: https://aardvark.co.nz/daily/2021/1028.shtml

Why does the world not learn from the mistakes of the past?

The new (economic) cold war shows remarkable similarities to the cold war that existed in the 1960s and 1970s.

People and companies are being accused of spying and espionge, hostages are being taken, tensions are rising.

How will this cold war end though?

Your thoughts and insights please...

I wonder if all the 'wolf warrior' bluster is just to distract from the yet another deep-water port being expanded via the Belt and Road initiative. Things could kick off if China makes serious inroads into Taiwan (aka The Republic of China). All those chip fabs..

In my opinion.
Colder because economics is cold numbers and today's race in space, technology evolution in all strategic branches is hectic as never before.
And the society shown to be freer in words, but constrained with the same numbers plus ecological disasters and pandemic.

From an optimistic point of view (if there is a place here), we might see that the race goes more open and regulated. But this is only perception from the media, I think.

‘We all too often have socialism for the rich, and rugged, free market capitalism for the poor.’

I am making later edit:

History doesn't teach, it contributes with more and more years of a certain vector. We would rather see a situation, when we say 'they've always been rivals', then 'oh, what a miracle, rivals became allies'.
Human nature doesn't change, and every 30 years we go over again with new generation with more history behind. And nowadays much more sophisticated technology of common opinion to be controlled.

The paranoia spreads faster than Covid, or so it would seem: https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/454 ... ence-links

I recommend Tony Heller's youtube channel.

Tony spends a lot of his time digging out old newspaper articles.
He is especially good at finding past records on climate

He also posts stuff on Rumble Youtube decide to censor.
