While I have no use for China, On what alternate universe is China more of a threat currently to our Liberty and Freedom and Constitutional Republic than our own government right now?...The same government (The United States) that just had the FBI Murder lavoy Finicum.

The same government that in all probability just had Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Murdered.

The same government through the FBI and southern poverty law center, that said (Paraphrasing), "Christians, Liberty lovers, veterans and Second Amendment supporters and those who criticize government and not muslims are the number one domestic terrorist threat".

The same government that is flooding this country deliberately and Traitorously and Treasonously, with illegal Mexicans and islamist criminals and terrorist, in order to Try and destroy and dilute our National Character, in order to Try and get a NWO one world government slave state and your concerned about China?

The same government (The United States) that is allied with the two worst genocidal muslim nations (Turkey and Saudi Arabia) and your concerned about China?

An attempt "to slow down China's economic growth" is misguided and immoral. The proper course of action is to leverage the inherent superiority of the free-market (including adopting more free-market principles in our national defense economics, as was originally intended in the design of the Constitution) to out-compete any possible gains China can make without fully liberating itself.

Of course, really pursuing free-market economics requires recognizing and prohibiting slave-market activity, including certain kinds of international trade with unfree countries as well as working to eliminate involuntary servitude from our domestic economy. Unfortunately, America has been doing the exact opposite of this, decreasing the degree of economic freedom at home while becoming dramatically dependent on commodities produced by outright slavery abroad. This makes it entirely natural for an unfree nation like China to become economically competitive. But the problem isn't China's (internal, rather than international) economic growth but rather our own self-imposed lack of robust growth as a result of the restrictions imposed by government against free-market activity.

The military implications of this are significant but not decisive. Beijing has no interest in fighting a major war, their military build up is primarily for deterrence...but certainly applying to political and economic developments as well as purely military competition. That is to say, Beijing will not be shy about using the threat of its military power to dissuade other nations from attempting to compete with China in any sphere, not just military contests. As applied to the U.S., Beijing has thus far been mainly interested in shaping the military capability narrative so as to undercut international security arrangements which include economic benefits for the U.S. as well as to distort the military economics of the West. A substantial fraction of the trillions of irredeemable U.S. debt result from wasteful military spending, especially on procurement of systems that are obsolete (or worse) by the time they enter service. And the presumptions of international economics on which the irredeemability of all the trillions of debt are tolerated hinge on perceptions of U.S. military dominance, perceptions that are eroding both due to the incompetence of our own political leadership and the intentional challenges mounted by other powers.

The result of global economic collapse, abolishing the reserve currency status and trading privileges of the U.S. dollar and nation, will be civil war effectively removing the U.S. as an obstacle to Beijing and other authoritarian regimes intent on achieving regional dominance in other parts of the world.
