Knots that tie us

Paulo Rego*

A history of borders has returned in the past decade with the success of Chinese capitalist communism. We are the ones who tie international relations

On the one hand, Beijing assuming expansionist ambitions – even for domestic consumption – spelling out blocking forces, consult an east or west. On the other hand, Covid-19 is a group of economic downturn among all nationalists and protectionists, inflating an economic crisis and resuming conflicts. The politician has this strange impulse: straight ahead, until the abyss. However, against previous editions, the ego appears on the surface; drowns or judge and ethics of the relationship.

The return of the dispute in the Diaoyou Islands, in southern China, is one of the most caricature symbols of this lack of sense. Regardless of the golden rocks, there are a myriad of Atlantis…. and seriously just venal. In that bit of nothing, then the geo-strategic riot and a demonstration of power justify an action-reaction between China and Japan, with Taiwan and like the Philippines per meter to be harvested. Since the tension is recurrent; it has long been pacified.

Perhaps the politician sees the past; perhaps Covid-19 put judgment on man; I wish that technological, informed, environmental and peaceful man … put the monsters in order

Another quadrant, the two great Asian giants kill each other hand to hand. At issue, the Royal Control Line between China and India, in the Galwan Valley, in Ladakh, in the region of Kashmir, highly militarized and with a stage of land claims also with Pakistan.

In Hong Kong, the eternal conflict, with dramatic consequences for the population, a regional economy and a global interest in China.

Both sides are responsible for having cut bridges for dialogue. But it is also obvious that it is a firearm that many feed against China.

Perhaps the politician sees the past; perhaps Covid-19 put judgment on the man; I wish that technological, informed, environmental and peaceful man… put the monsters in order. But it seems that more of the same is coming. No big deal…
