A Crisis of Harmony: Seek Not Conflict, Cause No Harm
So Henry Kissinger has emerged from his perch in the deeper shadows of history to remark upon our current situation with China:
Former US national security adviser Henry Kissinger has warned that strains between Washington and Beijing pose “the biggest problem” for the world, and a failure to improve them risks a “cold war” between the world’s two largest economies. “It’s the biggest problem for America; it’s the biggest problem for the world. Because if we can’t solve that, then the risk is that all over the world a kind of cold war will develop between China and the United States,” Kissinger told the McCain Institute’s Sedona Forum on global issues.
This tells me two things:
That Kissinger is still alive tells me that the blood of the innocent really does extend the lifespan.
That Kissinger seems to be the adult in the room tells me that we're in a scary place.
