Does China Want War?

“‘WARNING,’ it began, ‘THIS VIDEO MAY BE UPSETTING TO SOME VIEWERS.’ Just the all-caps was upsetting, I thought to myself. Still, I was all ears and eyes for Johnny Harris’s ‘Here’s What Happens If China Invades Taiwan,’ which garnered seven million views since February. Harris was ‘a little bit conflicted making this video,’ because he ‘feels very against the machismo fascination with conflict,’ telling viewers that ‘we’re talking about people’s lives’ and ‘entire societies being ripped about by a power struggle.’ Declaring that ‘China doesn’t want war,’ Harris hazards that Mainland China ‘will probably try much less violent ways to try to force Taiwan to the negotiating table before resorting to all-out invasion.’ Masters of benevolence, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will … accept surrender!” (07/29/22)
