IN THE wild, chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) are aggressive. They live in cruel male-led societies, similar to gangs, and females are subjected to gang rape. The gang leader and his acolytes often go on murder and pillage attacks on neighbouring chimpanzee gangs.
Bonobos (Pan paniscus) look much the same yet are much more peaceful, female-dominated societies.
The dividing line seems to be the Congo River: bonobos to the north and chimpanzees to the south.
We humans have both of those extremes in our societies and a whole lot of ‘civilised’ humans in between. But how civilised are those people? What does it take to turn them from one extreme to another?
It has been a long time since there has been a world war. But today, we can see one brewing. Are we living at the end of peace? What will a world war look like if it kicked off today and who will it be between?
President Xi of China is increasingly bellicose in his rhetoric, preparing the Chinese for war. He says firmly that the world must bow to the Chinese people, which means the Chinese Communist Party.
China’s military might exceeds that of the USA, and is growing still stronger.
Is China mad enough to launch a nuclear war? ‘Maybe’ is the answer.
China is making many threats towards Taiwan. The Japanese are prepared to help defend Taiwan. Australia cannot be far behind, nor can India. Taiwan, if attacked by China, could be the flashpoint.
India is already under skirmish attack from China in its northern areas. Disputed borders, they call it. It is also under attack with factories that have taken business from the Chinese that the Chinese think belongs to them.
The US under Trump was a formidable opponent, not to be taken lightly. Under Biden all that has changed, very fast. The US has become pro- China and all sorts of subversive pro-China policies have been put in place.
The Chinese are penetrating a great deal of US Government agency and infrastructure. They are also penetrating educational establishments and stealing research.
Worse, the US is being exposed as vulnerable to new forms of attack which could smash it to pieces and cause a major civil war within it, thus removing it as any sort of opposition.
We saw this last winter the collapse of US power grids. To say its electricity infrastructure is at breaking point is a serious understatement. Years of silly green thinking and under-investment are coming home to roost. China could easily launch a cyber-attack on the US power system, and then what?
Electricity is central to our lives. No electricity means gas pumps do not work, nor do ATM machines, nor do fridges and freezers. Nor do computers or mobile phones. After a two-week power outage people would have no food or clean water. After a month the US would be a wreck that might never recover from the gang warfare that would erupt. Cities would empty as food runs out within a week, and water stops. Gangs would take over. Food reserves would be attacked by hungry and desperate people.
Note that other strange, hidden quickly by the MSM, ‘cyber-attack’ on a fuel pipeline in the US. Imagine if the Chinese attacked US gas and electricity supplies simultaneously, perhaps in winter. Transport would stop within a week and people would die after a month, many before. Violence and desperation would be rife.
The US would be wrecked with a lot of people killed, and the Chinese would not have fired a shot.
Under Trump this would be unthinkable; under Biden it becomes possible.
President Xi knows full well that a strong US guarantees world peace. A neutralised US gives him the greatest chance to achieve his dream of China and the CCP dominating the world. His time is now, while the world has been weakened by CCP-style lockdown policies.
There will be a Pacific alliance to stop him, starting with India, Japan and Australia. Iran will ally with China and possibly shut down the Suez Canal and threaten Middle East oil supplies. It could launch a nuclear attack on Israel to wipe it out once and for all.
Russia hopefully will stay out of it, or be against China in the end.
What will Europe do? Merkel is very pro-China and so is the EU. Boris Johnson is so weak and Left-inclined that he will not stand up to China either. Sending that warship into the Black Sea to threaten Putin was inept. Johnson cannot even stop illegal immigrants from crossing the Channel. Nor can he fight the media and the elite in UK on behalf of the people to end lockdown. He cannot fight his way out of a paper bag.
What of Turkey? I have long thought it will attack Europe. Erdogan has a big well-equipped army, as well as an easy route into Europe following the Danube and the Rhine. He has millions of loyal Turks in Germany.
And what of corrupt, brutal Africa? Will Chinese-trained armies of utter depravity be unleashed upon Europe? Africa’s population explosion makes a worrying prospect in the mix.
I see formidable storm clouds brewing for us all.
No wonder gun sales in the USA are showing a massive increase, especially to first time owners and women. Is that the writing on the wall for us all to read?
