A military conflict between China and the USA would very likely result in global nuclear war, a major setback to human civilisation and possibly extinction for our species. Who could possibly want to risk that?
Fundamentalist Christians look forward eagerly to the End of Days when their great bearded sky daddy will take them all off to their fairy tale heaven, leaving the rest of us to burn in their equally fictional hell. They’re clearly not invested in a future for this world or our species, as this is just their deity’s waiting room.
