The East Palestine train derailment revealed for many in the U.S. and around the world the impact of corporate deregulation. The story was trending for many weeks in China as people were confused and surprised by the way that corporations are managed in the U.S. compared to the nationalized and high-tech rail industry in China. In this episode, recorded on March 6th, we are joined by Albert Wu, political commentator and key opinion leader across Chinese social media as well as Dr. Nazia Kazi, author of Islamophobia, Race and Global Politics, and Associate Professor of Anthropology at Stockton University in New Jersey. Overlap is a global conversation show based on a simple concept — while US elites are working to build a new Cold War environment with China, we want to do the opposite, with people-to-people dialogue and virtual exchanges that show how much we have in common, and how much we have to lose from a new policy of isolation and demonization. This show is made in collaboration with our friends at WaveMedia 🤍WaveMedia, a private media house in China.
Hallelujah....this chinese kids is smarter than many american politicians.
Interesting Afghanistan came up, the US spent 2 Trillion Dollars over 20 years. Possibly one of the countries if not the only one, where the balance sheet is in the red.
But they have more than made for that from other countries, with imposed sanctions.
That’s not the only way, Iraq after it’s invasions can’t sell its own oil. The US does that for them and they don’t just hand over the proceeds. The Iraqi government has to provide their budget for them to get a penny. It’s like applying for a Bank Loan and if it’s approved then you get the money. Not necessarily all the money.
It’s not just the US the French are at it too, all of the countries in Africa who were once colonies of France are paying through their nose for independence.
This is how it works, these countries were told that if you want freedom then, there’s a price to pay.
You people are too stupid, to look after your own money. You have to deposit 85% of your GDP every year with the French National Bank. If you want any of that money back you have to apply for it like a loan. If approved then you will get the money (sounds familiar). You will have to pay interest at international rates. When you pay it back.
Is it just me or can anyone see the stupidity, absurdity bullying and racketeering that’s going on.
Deposit my money into a bank account and if I want/need to make a withdrawal, I have to give them my financial details, justify and pay it back with interest.
The myth is IMPERIAL RULE IS OVER.
COLONIAL RULE IS OVER.
The BRITISH MUST BE KICKING THEMSELVES FOR NOT HAVING SOMETHING SIMILAR IN THE INDIAN SUB CONTINENT. MAYBE NOT BECAUSE AFTER 200 years of almost INSLAVEMENT OF THE INDIAN PEOPLE, BY THE TIME THEY LEFT. THEY HAD LOOTED, STOLEN AND PLUNDERED THE COUNTRY TO SUCH A STATE, THERE WAS NOTHING LEFT.
NOT TO MENTION INDIA DOES NOT HAVE THE SAME KIND OF NATURAL RESOURCES AFRICAN COUNTRIES HAVE.
ITS LIKE THE KING IS DEAD, LONG LIVE THE KING.
The legacy of IMPERIAL, COLONIAL RULE.
This is the Democratic America for Americans. You have the President and Vice President are in Africa lecturing the people on how wonderful their form of democracy.
Ironically it’s not even Democracy, it’s a lot of SOUND BITES. Everything that sounds good, but DOESN’T HAVE ANY SUBSTANCE.
If you listen to P Harris, it’s a classic case of DIVIDE AND CONQUER. Creating a DIVISIONS BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN, HUSBAND AND WIFE, FATHERS AND DAUGHTERS.
That’s in public speeches, but in private meetings with governments, it’s BULLYING, RACKETEERING.
It’s DO AS YOUR TOLD.
WE KNOW WHATS GOOD FOR YOU.
YOU DON’T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GOOD AND BAD.
The US government is like the GANGSTERS in the HOLLYWOOD MOVIES. GANGSTERS WALK INTO A BUSINESS AND OFFER THEIR SERVICES. WHEN QUESTIONED THEY START TO THREATENING, BREAKING FURNITURE.
SIMILARLY THE US GOVERNMENT THREATENS WITH SANCTIONS, POINTS TO POLITICAL ASSASSINATIONS, OVERTHROWN GOVERNMENTS AND FINALLY INVASION, GADDAFFI, IRAQ, AFGANISTAN.
USA else ScAmerika ridden with conniving parasitic exploitation, malfeasance, kleptocracy, corporateer, & systemic corruption indulge abuse injury, injustice, malevolence, negligence, retaliation & atrocity with human rights violations.
His & she telling the whole facts ...Nice ...👍👍👍
The US economy depends of production of machineries of war but the the chines economy in contrast depends on exporting consumer good, so there is no wonder then the US needs war and instability while the Chines need peace and stability
Profit and wealth by the few is glorified and America’s are constantly told to worship the rich and even to the extent of sympathizing fir the very rich.
This is why the US is at war against china, the US is ruled by oligarchs and their interest.
Essentially public service such as utilities should be public own. Privatization priority is only profit.
Great video and conversation!
Huge thanks from Finland! This is what the world needs.
EVERY rational nation makes critical infrastructure immune from the profit motive. Water, Healthcare, education, transport, law enforcement, utilities should never ever be in the hands of corporation.
The point Nazia made about MSM not covering major issues or just jumping to the next nonsense thing is by design, and for that reason is why they want apps like Tiktok to go away. Better pay close attention to the "Restrict Act" because if that gets passed Tiktok and other methods that people use to learn whats going on will be illegal (National Security Reasons) you will not be able to coordinate efforts to fix the system they have engineered.
My conclusion of current American systemic governance likens a harlot = prostitute: looks nice from outside, with makeup, but rotten inside (private area)! 🧐
Hey, look. A democrat communist sympathizer. Damn, we knew already, but you guys don’t have to signal so hard.
The Chinese can keep on with getting shot in concentration camps. Enjoy it, dudes. And not owning property I guess.
PLEASE!!!! PLEASE!!! PLEASE!!! STOP using the line "thanks for having me", its so pathetic, and demeaning. not to mention very unLeft. do stop, and you'll be a much better person for it.
Im glad ya’ll integrating ANTI-RACIST black host in your show it will help get BLM, Antifa, and other woke Americans on board w the awareness
Should have mentioned how high Amtrak fares are in Philadelphia and how one must wait out in the weather to ride the bus if you are in the lower 80 percent.
Holy moly every American needs to hear this. More conversations exactly like this. Every week. Until they get it.
