GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 26th December at noon SLT: China! Should we admire it or fear it? Will we become like it?

 

China has made itself one of the most powerful and important countries in the world.  Its influence in the rest of the world is steadily increasing.  How big a threat is it?

What is China really like?  Are the stories about concentration camps, disappearances, organ theft all true?  What is it like to live under the social credit system?  Do you think that all countries will eventually become like China? 

Will China rule the world and would that be a good thing?  Or will it fall apart in chaos and revolution?

Take your Mandarin lessons and come and discuss China with us!

GeekSpeak – will China rule the world 10 years from now? Join the discussion May 18th at 12pm SLT



Let’s talk about China. Where is it going?  Will it be taking the lead in technology in a few years’ time?  How will world trade change when China completes its new network of land and sea trade routes (the belt and road initiative).  Will other countries become more like China as it grows more powerful?  Should we all be learning Mandarin?
What about the dark side of China?  The forced abortions, the re-education camps, the disappearances and killings, the constant monitoring, the social scores.  Would you like to live in China, or do you think China is an Orwellian horror show?  Are you frightened when you think of China ruling the world?
Or do you think China’s economy will collapse and there will be a revolution?  Maybe that possibility is equally frightening.

GeekSpeak – will 2019 see the start of a race to the moon?


China has landed a lunar rover on the far side of the moon.  What will happen because of this?  How will other countries react?

When there are two massive bodies interacting in space there are five points where the gravitational forces balance out and it is easy to place satellites or space stations.  These are the Lagrange points. China has a satellite at the L2 point for Earth and the moon.  These Lagrange points are very important space real estate.  There may be a new race to claim the other four.

Will countries ditch the moon treaty?  Will China agree to allow access to their base and the L2 point?  Will we see multiple bases and multiple claims at the end of 2019?  Should we be worried about all this?  Should we be afraid of the power of China?

Fasten your seat belts, get ready for launch … !

GeekSpeak – what would it be like to live with a Social Credit System?




China is creating a social credit system where everyone has to behave well or they lose social credit points.  Your social credit score will determine where you can live, whether you can travel, whether you can buy or rent a car, in fact it will determine what your life will be like.

What would it be like to live with such a system?  Will there be a black market in social credits?  Will people find ways to cheat?

Will the system lock the culture in one state forever because no one will dare to be different?  No one will ever dye their hair pink?  What will happen to the people who fall below the minimum credit level?

Will some people be happy with the social credit system?  If they can upvote and downvote people it may give them the illusion of control.

Will the social credit system be established in the west?  Come and discuss the future of citizen control. Entry only if you have 10 credit points.
