No. China is Russia to Taiwan’s Ukraine, not Ukraine to Taiwan’s Donbas. We are returning to the old days of imperialism and geopolitics with “spheres of influence”.

«On the other hand, the fundamental geopolitical dynamics underlying Putin’s invasion of Ukraine are anathema to sovereignty-obsessed Beijing. Just imagine Taiwan declaring independence like the separatists in Donbas and turning to a sympathetic nuclear superpower for recognition?»

How long before we resume our forward & upward path of democracy, human rights, and capitalism (in the form of free trade, as opposed to rent-seeking, crony capitalism, and kleptocracy)? Overblown language, but I feel it.
