Q: In the year 2049, will China be in its prime?

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/04/12/commentary-time-for-us-europe-to-ask-wha...

 

From CNBC article; "Finally, it’s clearer than ever that Beijing by the time of the 100th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China in 2049 aspires to be the dominant economic, political and perhaps military power for an era where democracies remain but authoritarian systems are ascendant."

 

Like the CPC, I also have pipe dreams, but I realize them for what they are. Or perhaps, like Poe, they are taking an opium-induced stroll through the Valley of Many-Colored Grass where such dreams are so vivid as to seem like reality. Still, they are entitled to their dreams, their aspirations and their goals. Hitler's new wonder weapons will win the war and all the world's a rose garden.

China has their dictatorship going for them, so at least they can play the long game. The US term limit is far too short to make any meaningful long term plans because the next administration will spend their time undoing what the previous one did.

It's possible. China is very determined and focused in working towards their goals, more so than their competition I think.

 

Then again, a lot can happen in 30 years so who knows, by then China's environmental problems will probably be catastrophic instead of just dire which might slow them down a bit.

China is already a major power in every sense of the word. Ghengas Khan,  Alexander, Neopolean, Hitler, and a few others had big dreams too. But like some of those powers, China"s dream will probably be defeated from within. Overtaking America will be easy as long as the Trumpet boy is in power.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
