China is easy.
They could have steamrolled the .gov back when Tienanmen square happened.
Back when they had the enthusiasm and emotions were running high.
Now, they’re just more sheep, in part because of what they’ve experienced and want.
TVs, cars, dangle that carrot out there, more controls in place that no one saw happening.
They have no rights, no arms, nothing but bodies.

Controlling it all, all they have to do is shut down shipments of food/medications/etc and they will cave just
as fast as anyone else.

Decades of communism aren’t thrown off instantly, look at russia as an example.
Look who’s in power now?
