Fenton is predominantly correct.

I live, teach and coach in China. I’ve many Chinese friends and colleagues. Many are CCP. Because everything is monitored here, I’ll limit my comments to this; Fenton is both very correct and very incorrect. The usual dichotomy in life. For the record, I’m a very patriotic and love America, as I’m from a family of combat vets lineage. Indeed, we don’t want war with China. They’re psychologically and spiritually ready for conflict. On any scale. Their populace may not agree with their government in some things, but they deeply love their country and they aren’t hoping to become US. Ironically, contrarily, the common folk are enamored with America and treat us very well here. Any criticism I have, I’ll not mention out of respect to another system and culture. The Fenton podcast interview was EXCELLENT!

Editing problem

The last two federalist podcasts I’ve listened to abruptly ended mid interview. Listening on apple podcast app. Great stuff, but there is some kind of technical issue.
