What he's reffering to is that China cannot run an export model without buying a reserve currency (US "debt") to keep their currency low. Otherwise the two currencies value would equalize, and their export advantage would narrow and eventually evaporate. They buy US debt, which subsidises US consumers, who buy their exports. It's circular.

Out of the ruins
Out from the wreckage
Can't make the same mistake this time
We are the children
The last generation
We are the ones they left behind

And I wonder when we are ever gonna change
Living under the fear 'til nothing else remains

We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond
The thunderdome

— Terry Britten and Graham Lyle, performed by Tina Turner

For US folks, there's currently a proposed Title IX change that would protect trans people.

It's only open to public comments for *two more days* and the vast majority of current comments are looking really TERF-y. Please consider adding a comment to the proposal to help out :heart_trans:

In light of Queen Elizabeth's $500 million net-worth, Elon Musk having declared himself 'Techno-King' / CEO, as upward mobility in the US depends more on dynastic birthright than 'how hard you work' - it's clear that feudalism wasn't replaced by 'capitalist democracy', but rather the billionaire is another royal 'face' of the same coin, sitting on thrones of stacked $100 bills instead of gold coronation chair.
