"Westerners with their belly full shouldn't point fingers at the Chinese." The dictator Xi Jinping

Maybe he knows? Maybe he doesn't? But it's too late now.

In China when a ruler fails (and not being able to feed his people is failing) they put his head on pole. He has no place to run too; unless he goes to Tibet, and moves in with a Yeti. The CCP is going to get a technical lesson on the working of the old Chinese Finger Trap. In the US we just ship them off to Martha's Vineyard. But if anyone should have been aware of the stupidity of basing your entire civilization on one depleting resource it should have been the Chinese. But apparently their war lords moved in, and their philosophers moved out.

Maybe the Communist Party just saw the population grow, despite the one child policy, and didn't know what do?

In the end they are just Mandarins trying to run a nation.
