- Muslims are going to take over. Not through Sharia. Take a loo…
Our society nowadays
Your display pic says it all
Thats pretty cheap. Anyway, if a group outnumbers another group, they become the majority. Any group can do it. And when said group (as in a race or ideological group) becomes the majority, they have the most deciding power. If Muslims outnumbered Germans, they in theory could implement sharia law. So its kind of a side effect.
The british didn't outnumber any group in any country they took over in early civilisation. They outsmarted them. Which is all besides the point, because it's not about tactical prowess anymore. It hasn't been about tactical prowess for at least a century. It's about economical prowess - the US. If any one country is going to take over the world, it's China.
Eh...I don't think so. My sister lives in China, and she's pointed out that with the restrictions on families having more than one kid without heavy taxes, the older generations there vastly outnumber the younger generations, since they were from a generation where they were allowed to multiply a LOT. I don't know everything there is to know about economics, but from what I can gather, I wager this is gonna wreak havoc on China's economical stability in the next 10 or so years, probably even less.
A massive drop in population like that means the workforce plummets. There'll be tons of unfilled jobs, and production everywhere would go down. Everything would need to be downsized. This makes for a China that looks big and badass for the short-term, but shrinks damn quick when you look to the future.
the one child policy is no longer in place, but w/e
I thought that was still a thing. Huh. Thanks for the tidbit, the more know the more you grow.
A lot of economists are saying either China or India are going to be the next power-house. My bet is on China because their structure is a lot closer to the US sort of standard than India.
I think I'd like to see why they think that. Got any sources you can remember?
Well it's either been stuff in documentaries or tv programs, or myself talking to friends of my dad (stock brokers).
So either obscure shit that would have to be dug for, or personal experience that's hard to use in a discussion about it? Well, that sucks.
No, not necessarily?
>seriously thinking that Chinese economists aren't lying their asses off to look good
>implying China's production-based economy will last
And don't forget that China is culturally, economically, and diplomatically a glass tiger. Sure, it looks scary and you'll cut your hand, but it'll shatter quite easily.
Culturally, China is not a western nation. Principles like charity to those unrelated to you, honest to goodness gender equality (not feminist bullshit, but not killing off female babies either), and general respect to the environment and to fellow man are foreign to their mindset. China is only a powerhouse
their people don't think like we do- if they did, their entire system would collapse.
Economically, China can't sustain their growing output and production. There are South Eastern Asian counties willing to work for less (Vietnam for example) and growing quality of life will also work against their production. When you throw in Environmental rules and the idea of working smarter, not harder, and China loses most of it's bite.
Diplomatically America is still and will remain top dog of the world, and it's a position China can't usurp because in this age of technology and inter-connectivity, Empires win by dominating not by military/force (Like Rome did), not by economic trade and connections (Like Britain did) but by culturally controlling the mindsets of the citizens of other nations, so that they
to be allied with us. China has burned too many bridges to form the connections that America does, and it's unlikely that China will be able to steal any relationships from America because of their respective track record- Westerners (both England and America in Africa and Japan respectively) like to make friends and build up others, with the mindset that you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. China (and most other non-Western culture nations) want just the resources/land/money, screw whoever owned it before. We can see this happening with China's interest in African economies where they will send Chinese workers to harvest materials and return with them, proverbially sucking the land dry.
In summation, Western culture is just strictly
than Eastern or some other kind of culture.
The people aren't really flooding out of China right now are they? But people are flooding out of the middle east into Europe. Its not about tacticality or economic power. THere's a lot of people in this world. Its simply a numbers game right now. Who has the majority and who's the minority.
This goes back to my original statement of 'you're ignorant'.
It has never been a numbers game. The only time I can even partially consider it a numbers game in modern world history, is in WWII when the US had just a stupid amount of soldiers in play towards the end. But the powerful groups who got shit done were the small, well trained elites. Like the Australian Rats of Tobruk.
