Does a Superpower need pragmatism?

Before Covid-19, many articles assumed that the Chinese economy would soon surpass the American economy. Even before Covid-19, I never believed that. Nowadays, many articles assume that China may never become an economic Superpower. As long as the CCCP rules, that new belief is valid. Hence, my blog title: does a Superpower need pragmatism? In my view, ideology will...

When will Shia and Sunni Islam focus on atheism in China?

Many articles claim that China brokered a peace agreement between Iran (ie, Shia Islam) and Saudi Arabia (ie, Sunni Islam).

The countries accusing Russia of imperialism know what they are talking...

Whenever Money takes the lead within the Power domain of the 7 Belief systems, it will be crushed by either Politics (eg, China) or Religion (eg, Iran). American businesses used to appeal to all Americans. Not anymore. Recently, the Economist published an article that Republicans are...

New: a proxy World War

I never thought that I would be writing this blog. I'm still hesitating. Once it's published then I will have made my final decision. I'm hesitant because of the big words that I'm using (ie, a proxy World War). It's the only way that I can classify what's going on in Ukraine. This is no longer a regional war. Let me start by explaining my choice of words: a proxy...
