GLEN FORD—The U.S. 5G eclipse by China is permanent, rooted in the systemic mayhem of the imperial economic (dis)order. Although the U.S. virtually invented the Internet as a byproduct of military technology, the early U.S. global hi-tech lead was squandered in the chaotic and criminally wasteful corporate capitalist game of all-or-nothing. As recounted by the South China Morning Post (“How US went from telecoms leader to 5G also-ran without challenger to China’s Huawei”) the U.S. refused to set national standards for mobile carriers, allowing tech companies to choose between wireless networks like TDMA, CDMA and GSM.

SUBHUTI2—I once had the opportunity to speak to a pretty high ranking Chinese official. Someone told me he was in the Chinese version of the CIA. He asked me what I thought of Marx. I haven’t read much Marx, however, as a student of Buddhism, I said that the ideal Buddhist works to ‘save all beings’, that is, everybody deserves and eventually achieves Nirvana, the highest state of existence. Communism, I said, works to the same end on a social and cultural level, where everyone is treated fairly so we all prosper together at nobody’s expense. Win Win. Which is exactly the opposite of Western Zero sum, “Heads I win, tails you lose.” It is no accident that some of the greatest musicians came from Soviet Russia, where people actually got support to create beauty, not gadgets.

RAMIN MAZAHERI—It’s a real shame more reporters aren’t doing live reports from the front lines, because cops know they can’t do anything to anyone on live TV – they surely are forced to rein in their violent tactics. It’s a real shame mainstream reporters (and I include PressTV with them, in a rare instance) aren’t going to the front line. Again, I am no courageous guy, I just feel that the Yellow Vests are nothing new: France’s Yellow Vests: It’s just 1 protest…which has lasted 8 years, was the first article I wrote on the Yellow Vests, and it stresses that this violence against peaceful protesters is absolutely, positively nothing new.
