G7: The US and the UK are the two most reactionary Western powers. The US is desperate to remain the global hegemon; the UK dreams it still is. They look to the past. Germany is the most progressive. Forced to reinvent itself, it lives in the present: sensible, pragmatic, modest.

@BBCWorld No thanks, why would the EU help the US to preserve current world order? World is much better when there is a balance like during Cold War not like in the last 20 years when the US bombed several countries

@Reuters Imagine!They still looked at developing Nations the same way they did in 1884 with the scramble and invasion of Africa. What these G7 leaders failed to understand is that, they schemed themselves out with their selfish and double standard policies.China has provoked a new thought

The G7 - Divided and in Decline: 1. US has 16% of global GDP; EU 15% 2. G7 no longer global: a Western rump 3. US priority: prevent China usurping it. EU priority: cooperate with China for future growth 4. US sees G7 as anti-China coalition; EU needs partnership with China

@Reuters It is NOT only China’s belt. The belt is a connection between Europe and China, which benefit all Eurasian, except for U.S. In history, the World Wars and Cold War in Eurasian suffered Europe, while benifited US.

@ladytcat2003 @Vaw511 @CNN Dont forget the bible! My mother’s great observation:- When the white man went to Africa he had the bible & the people had the land. Shortly after, the white man had the land & the people had the bible!

I think about this picture of Jeff Bezos eating an iguana a lot. A defining image of our time, a neo-gothic artefact, a 21st century vision of baroque. An utterly horrifying vibe. https://t.co/yIeDqhGzcE

@agent_of_change Amnesty is good at making stories. They can produce a report by just taking a photo. Like this "Blacks detained in American concentration camps for forced labor." https://t.co/wA1YsXex4U

The infrastructure bill that Biden proposed spends $2 TRILLION of your taxpayer dollars & only allocates 6% of it to infrastructure. I introduced the AIM Act to fund roads, bridges, airports, ports & real infrastructure projects. I won't vote for yet another leftist slush fund.

@Geopol2030 The US needs to focus on the US rather than trying to tell other countries how to behave.

As a percentage of their gains in wealth, Buffett has paid 0.1% (10 cents on every $100), Bezos 1.1%, Bloomberg 1.3%, the 25 richest as a group just 3.4%. Even on just their income, the richest pay less than 16%, far below the 37% top rate: https://t.co/ytdjPZGdiI

@dicktofel @MollyJongFast To be fair, their companies spend a lot of money legally bribing politicians to create gigantic tax loopholes.
