Re: Free Trade

Having a second or third technological power would actually benefit trade, not harm it. This is not an us versus them matter, it is about providing balance and a degree of mutual non-dependence.

As a bonus, it would also open a competitive space addressing the various markets targeted by the sanctions the US so liberally puts in place, which would make unilateral action less attractive and therefore promote negotiation, hopefully making it less common for a certain actor to barge in like a drunk elephant in a china shop.

If we have a better balance, we all win.
