Strange as it may be to you, the CCP may not directly represent the Chinese people but represents the deep interests of China and its people.
The branch of economics that explains why this isn't true is called "public choice".

That's why they readily accept the direction of the CCP. They will never rebel against their present rulers, particularly if they feel that such rebellion would mainly serve the interests of the hated American foreigners.
The tactic the CCP uses to encourage this sentiment amongst the people they rule is called "diversionary foreign policy".

It is truly amazing that Sertorio has the time and energy to survey all of these billions of people, so he can tell us what they think.

It's not so amazing when you remember that he's sooooooooooooo much smarter than everyone else.

How much smarter I am - or am not - it's something which we will need a bit more time to find out. But you are doing your best to prove in my favour... :D

1)U You were wrong about Socialism. Socialism causes poverty and often dictatorships. That's the truth but you can't see that.

2)You were wrong about Putin, a visious dictator. You think he is a great guy.

3)You were wrong about the US, a generally benign country that has done the world a lot of good. You think it is evil.
