“China aims to dominate everything from 5G to social media — but will it?”

"China aims to dominate everything from 5G to social media -- but will it?"
An interesting article from CNET today about China’s global ambitions. I’m not wanting to stir up shit and get into politics, but I do want to lay out why I don’t see that happening long-term:
  1. Societies all over the world are increasingly negative on China
  2. Western governments are blocking China tech from modern networks
  3. China is under increasing pressure to eliminate the one-sided business relationships that exist. AKA: if you’re going to block Facebook, we’re going to block TikTok.
  4. China does not yet have the economic power it will need to accomplish its objectives, and
  5. Western governments are actively opposing China in the wake of Hong Kong, trade wars, and China’s aggressive political approach
None of what I’m saying means that I think China won’t grow as a tech powerhouse. I just don’t see them becoming the Amazon of tech.
