I have some respect for J.R Nyquist; he is a clear thinker.
However, he is the Cold War warrior par excellence and I think he has one part of his thesis wrong,
I simply cannot buy his thesis that is based, essentially on one Soviet defector and his supporters that the Sino0-Soviet split and the collapse of communism was no more than a ruse designed to fool the West so they can jointly attack the West. It just does not pass muster with me.
Unlike his view of Russia, there are some primary documents relating to China’s nefarious designs, so I will stick to my own thesis that Russia is the victim of western aggression and China has unleashed a bioweapon on the West.
Definitely worth listening to but exercise some discrimination is my advice
