War in Taiwan 2024 (General)

My point is that Chinese and US banking infrastructure could benefit from a limited war, one that doesn't destroy chip infrastructure or even drive Taiwan closer to reunification. All it has to do is help the Man strengthen his control and make people fall in line.

That's the key point that i can't escape - there's too much to lose on either side for a full-scale war.

The Man is in China and the US. They're partners. ... They'll do something that benefits each side. It will be something shocking but, I'm guessing, not terribly devastating, well, aside from the thousands of lives of peasants that will be lost.

Yep, they have far more in common with each other in terms of 'crowd control' than they do with the 'crowd'. They don't give a shit about some peasants dying, so long as it's happening on TV in some quarantined theatre.

And it will be combined with other events to convince those peasants who were spared to do what the Man says, and thank him for helping them out.

And there will be parades and maybe new public holidays.
