    Cornelius is one of JPP's most longstanding and interesting enigmas wrapped up in a ball of mystery. No one can be quite sure as to his true identity, which has left many flabbergasted and concerned. Cornelius has appeared numerous times throughout JPP history, always in a poignant and punctual fashion. He's offered numerous contributions to a whole host of threads with his unique insight into the human condition, and has captivated both mind and spirit with each corner of the site that he visits. Almost as a function of time, the clamor for Cornelius to return grew louder and louder until it could no longer be ignored. Cornelius is now among us all.

    I thought you more intelligent than that, you seriously cannot see any negative implications to this?

    Sounds simple enough to me, indeed pretty damn obvious if you sit down and think it through.

    Will One Party Rule,

    and a 'Collective' vs 'Individual' mentality prevail?

    Western Civilization is what is at stake here.

    China is intent on creating a new empire, definitely shades of Japan before WW2.

    I sure do.. "Made in China 2025" would not be a pleasant world order for the USA as it means surpassing us in intellectual propertty development and manufacturing and even weapons/territory.

    Xi has formally walked back the goal, but the measures to get there -except for some notable IP protections-remain
    But that's why Trump/Lighthizer are negotiating a new Trade Agreement, Because that is exactly where we were headed

    Britain is #6 and may fall even further behind once they leave the EU, maybe he should worry about his own country.
    That’s why I’m so screwed up, because I had a father who pushed me so hard,” Trump acknowledged in 2007, in a brief and rare moment of self-awareness.

    Analysts see 'several signs of modest progress' in latest US-China trade talks

    A U.S. delegation returned home on Wednesday after a three-day round of trade talks in Beijing.
    The American side released a statement noting a long list of outstanding issues in the relationship, but also recognizing that China had pledged to buy "a substantial amount" of goods and services from the U.S.
    Some outside observers say the talks yielded some small signs of progress toward resolving the ongoing trade war between the world's two largest economies.
