    I think you need to look more closely at the chart. It shows a 72-year time frame of 1946 - 2017, produced by Oxford University, an establishment with a notable reputation for scholarship.

    CHINA ASSISTING CYBER CRIME


    but keep sucking up to them
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    China's war on everything turns towards its own tycoons, with Jack Ma being a prime example

    ... the Chinese Communist Party, in its war on everything, has turned inwards and for the past six months has been targeting technology giants and their leaders, exacting retribution on any group that does not come to heel.
    First it was technology, now it is education

    The news last week came without warning and left global investors gasping.

    In yet another regulatory crackdown, Beijing ordered that all education companies, particularly those engaged in after-school tutoring, would be banned from making a profit. ...

    The Chinese Communist Party appears to have fallen out of love with the nation's most powerful tycoons, many of whom are at the forefront of technical innovation essential for the future of the People's Republic.

    For an unelected regime struggling to maintain the growth necessary for social harmony, the enormous wealth, popularity and power from the country's most successful entrepreneurs present a clear and potent threat. ...

    Ultimately, China's ability to maintain its iron-fisted control over the economy will be restrained by its own limitations.

    Along with slumping productivity and slowing growth, debt has soared to 340 per cent of GDP and it is running out of levers to pull.

    Alienation and aggression towards perceived enemies, including within its borders, appears to be on the rise. ...

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Now read on:

    "Rules were eased last month to allow athletes to "express their views" before and after competing, paving the way for athletes to take the knee to highlight racism without facing sanction.

    But bans remain on gestures or statements during competition or at medal ceremonies. "
