I have so much to say, and the times we live in demand that it be said, but today I am not going to say a thing. Instead I will let this guy, Daniel Dumbrill, say the words for me.
Dumbrill is an American (I think) vlogger from China and I came across this episode of his YouTube site, embedded here: https://thesaker.is/sitrep-here-comes-china-propaganda-and-bri/ …which is also a very readable and insightful piece.
I do not normally watch vlogs or listen to podcasts, having neither the time nor the patience to do so. So I am grateful to people like the Saker, who must trawl through an awful lot of drossy stuff to find and write about these remarkable gems – purely for our enlightenment.
