Konstantin Kisin Delivers Cracking Response to Wokeness at Oxford Debate

He actually ignores the general topic of wokeness to focus on a particular expression of wokeness, climate religion. He points out the First World contributes rather little to "global warming" and the developing world contributes a lot to it, and will contribute huge amounts to it as it lifts itself out of poverty and industrializes and electrifies.

He asks the woke climate zealots, "How are you going to tell a poor Third Worlder that he will have to continue shitting in a hole in a shack outside, when none of you are willing to to do so?"

I wish he'd asked "...when none of you are willing to so much as give up your iPhones and laptops," which none of them are, but it's a really great little speech.

Relatedly -- sort of -- China's population fell for the first time in its history. Or since the Qin dynasty.

No wait, since 1961, but it's still kind of a big deal.

China reported Tuesday its first population decline since 1961, as the world's most populous country faces a demographic crisis.

By the numbers: There were 1.41175 billion people living in China at the end of 2022 -- a drop of about 850,000 compared to the previous year's end, according to data from Beijing's National Bureau of Statistics Tuesday.

A total of 9.56 million people were born in the country in 2022 and 10.41 million people died, per the NBS.

Of note: The United Nations projects that India will overtake China as the world's most populous nation at some point this year.

Peter Zaihan has an interesting, if very blackpill, forecast for the world based on demographics. Basically, the western world is going to semi-collapse, as far as our economic model at least, because we are no longer making enough babies to sustain it, and the developing world is going to hit that same wall next decade.

But China is the worst shape, he figures. Due to their one-child policy, sexual imbalance (not enough girls to marry the boys) and other factors (have they also lost their appetite for making babies as they grew relatively wealthier?), they're about to go over a demographic cliff, and their model is especially dependent on a growing population.

Two videos about that below as well, one of him talking with Joe Rogan, another of him talking with Chris Williamson.

If you're interested in the topic, this video report about China's economy -- which is all largely based on debt secured by collapsing real estate in ghost cities -- is eye-opening.

Of course, when China goes, we're going too.

Of course, collapsing regimes have traditionally resorted to expansionist war to stave off their reckoning, and China is threatening just that.

China on Thursday signaled plans to retaliate militarily to new security initiatives between Japan and the U.S., warning that the allies' accelerated cooperation will create new threats for themselves in the region.

Citing a Chinese military analyst, the English-language Global Times newspaper warned that if Japan continued dramatic increases in military spending and new security postures coordinated with the U.S. -- particularly with regard to Taiwan -- then the Chinese military "is sure to take countermeasures, including holding more exercises and patrols in international waters and airspace around Japan."

Something that might give China second thoughts, though, is how poorly its semi-ally Russia fared against Ukraine, and how badly some of the China-made equipment and tires performed in the field.
