No, I can’t see the future. I don’t have an office in the Pentagon, and I’m not a spy for Google or Facebook. I’m just an ordinary person trying to make sense out of our increasingly crazy world.
On second thought, I’m not that ordinary. I’m a political activist, a student of political science and philosophy, and author who likes to make predictions. More important, I like to keep tabs on what’s happening all around me and try to make a difference. However, this is a site where we can let our hair down and just have fun trying to guess what’s going to happen next.
Still, I prefer educated guesses (i.e. predictions) over flipping a coin. After researching, writing, and publishing China vs USA, I have a much better understanding of the global geopolitical situation. And yet things can still be surprisingly confusing. How can anyone make any sense of the war between Russia and Ukraine, for example? And how did Ukraine get stuck with that jackass leader, Zelensky?
But that’s another story for another time. Right now let’s get down to business. My predictions focus on the economy, technology, the military, and Taiwan, with a lot of overlap.
Economy and Technology ˆ
The economy and technology are so closely intertwined, I decided to combine them into a single category. Nowhere is this incestuous relationship more apparent than in the computer chips war. Computer chips have reportedly trumped fossil fuels as the hottest global commodity, and it appears that any country that can gain control over computer chip production will likely become the supreme global superpower.
From China vs USA:
“In his book Fearing China (2015), Terry D. Wittenmyer predicted that China would have the world’s biggest economy by 2024. In more recent years, people were predicting that spectacular event would happen around 2027-2028. However, others are now pushing the date up to 2033.”
More confident in China, I predicted that its economy will match the United States’ by 2030.
Yes, China is reportedly grappling with economic problems, and the U.S. is fighting tooth and nail to hamstring China. However, the U.S. appears incapable of doing much more than say “boo” without the collective support of its allies, who are increasingly weary of doing Wall Street’s bidding. Moreover, the U.S. has economic problems of its own, including soaring inflation and a national debt of over $30 trillion.
China has a lot of pans in the fire, and the Chinese clearly have their act together. When the U.S. government manages to turn the New York subway into something rivaling China’s high-speed train phenomenon rather than the Tomb of the Unknown Homeless Person, then I might change my tune.
Computer Chips ˆ
I predict that China will be #1 in the computer chips arena by 2030, beating out Taiwan, South Korea, the U.S., and everyone else. I further predicted that China will upset the industry by 2025.
This is a shaky prediction, as China has a long, long ways to go, and the U.S. is throwing up every road block its team of lawyers and high-tech thugs can devise. There has been no shortage of news about China’s failures in the silicon chip arena. So why am I so optimistic?
I like China’s can do attitude, and you can’t ignore its army of scientists. Judging by what information I’ve been able to gather, it sounds like China is making slow but steady progress. I suspect we’ll be hearing about some significant breakthroughs by 2025.
Due to U.S. pressure, China is unable to purchase critical technology from the renowned Dutch firm ASML. Undeterred, Chinese scientists are trying to develop technology that will allow them to simply bypass ASML’s lithography maze. If they succeed, that will be one helluva breakthrough. However, there may be even more exciting news in the wings …
As silicon chips become ever smaller, we’re approaching the point where they can shrink no more. The next frontier is apparently carbon-based computer chips (aka graphene chips). Since no country has yet staked out this field, it would appear to be a more level playing field than silicon chips. If China becomes the first country to master carbon chips, stand back. There will probably be a lot of heart attacks among America’s elite.
A lot will happen in the next couple years. By the end of 2025, we should have a much clearer picture of the status of the various countries that are embroiled in the chip war. I predict that all eyes will be on China, which will proceed to kick ass until it is the undisputed master of computer chips by 2030. However, it could happen even earlier; who knows?
If China takes back Taiwan, that would probably clinch China’s victory.
The highlights of Donald Trump’s pathetic reign as pResident included his thuggish attacks on China, including a virtual war against Huawei. Yet Huawei is now more powerful than ever, making Trump look like a cosmic joke.
However, Trump did win a symbolic victory, crippling Huawei’s spectacular smartphone, which briefly reigned as the most popular smartphone in the world. But don’t give up hope.
In China vs USA, I predicted that Huawei’s smart phone will once again become #1 in 2027.
Of course, the key to the success of Huawei’s smartphone is computer chips. If China can’t lasso the computer chip industry, then Huawei’s smartphone may languish in limbo as an extraordinary gadget that just can’t be marketed for lack of parts.
However, Huawei hasn’t abandoned its celebrated phone. Engineers are continuously working to solve the computer chip problem. In the meantime, Huawei is also continuing to develop its Harmony operating system, which could eventually be installed on phones other than Huawei.
I predict that Harmony will be offering Google Android stiff competition by 2025. If, as I predict, Huawei’s smart phone regains its crown in 2027, it will be a cruel blow to the corporate whores who control America.
China’s goal is reportedly to achieve military parity with the U.S. by 2049. However, what does that mean? Does China want to have exactly the same number of aircraft carriers and nuclear missiles as the U.S.? Does it also want to have over 500 military bases scattered around the world?
In fact, China’s military already appears to be very capable of achieving its primary goal—self defense. Moreover, many observers are of the opinion that China can reclaim Taiwan any time it wants. Despite all its bluster, Team USA might well be too intimidated to defend Taiwan.
China is now in the process of projecting its power farther into the Pacific and Indian oceans. Indeed, Australia’s big-mouthed politicians could soon find themselves surrounded by Chinese military bases.
From China vs USA:
“At the rate China’s beefing up its military, I think it will be significantly stronger in 2025, and it will probably blow observers’ minds in 2030. I also think China’s soft power will be far greater in 2030, and its hard power and soft power combined will make it the United States’ equal.”
In plain English, I believe that China will be as powerful as the U.S. by 2030, two decades earlier than 2049. Of course, China will get a lot of help from the U.S., which continues to spend a torrent of money on maintaining hundreds of military bases, along with 11 aircraft carrier groups. And don’t forget all the pork barrel projects involving Raytheon, Boeing, and other corporate whores that make the U.S. military such a joke.
The U.S. military is no joke. It is insanely big and powerful, and the bastards who run it are immoral and amoral assholes. However, the U.S. military also has some colossal problems that are ignored by the media. If we get into an all out war with China, those problems will be exposed in magnificent detail.
In China vs USA, I predicted that Taiwan will be reunited with China by 2030. However, I may have erred; my book was published shortly before Nancy Pelosi’s scatter-brained visit.
War between the U.S. and China is now looking even more likely, as the two countries appear to be locked in a downward spiral. Could China actually make its move by 2025?
That certainly wouldn’t surprise me. However, it remains very difficult to predict much else.
Would the U.S. really defend Taiwan? Who would win a war between China and the U.S.? What strategies and tactics would the two countries employ?
The U.S. has some big advantages. However, China also has some huge advantages the media conveniently ignore. You can read about them in China vs USA.
One of China’s most striking weaknesses is its dependence on fossil fuels exported by other countries, particularly in the Middle East. If the U.S. military isn’t able to win a war in the western Pacific, it can simply cut off China’s supply of fossil fuels in the Middle East.
This is precisely why I made what may be my most tenuous prediction:
“China will have a de facto military base in Iran by 2023, consisting of a facility on the east side of the Strait of Hormuz.”
I should have written by the end of 2023, because it obviously won’t happen by the end of 2022. Perhaps it will never happen at all. Building a military base in Iran would sorely provoke both the U.S. and its puppeteer, Israel.
Still, building a port and military base on southeast side of the Strait of Hormuz seems like a very logical strategy, even if defending such an installation from terrorist attacks would be difficult. Keep your eyes on the Strait of Hormuz.
Other Predictions ˆ
There are too many tantalizing possibilities to discuss …
Will china have a military base in Latin America by 2030? How about West Africa? Will it build a military base across the street from Australia, in Papua New Guinea?
Will Chinese commerce lead to more empowerment and unity among African countries. (Actually, I think it already has.) How many European nations will give the U.S., European Union, and NATO the middle finger and support China?
When will China dethrone the U.S. dollar as the default global currency? Will it one day be possible for U.S. citizens to do their online banking with Chinese entities? (I’m ready to jump ship.)
Will the day come when countries are no longer willing to borrow money from the Wall Street Jews, preferring instead to do all their business with China?
