People in China were actually quite outraged when they found out the Chinese government punished a doctor who first warned about the spread of COVID-19. While China's authoritarianism predicated on shame is powerful, its not invincible. And at the end of the day, China's political elites are concerned the most with their own well-being. They'll accept political reform if it saves themselves and they will clamp down on economic reforms to prevent competition from affecting their wealth. Either China liberalizes politically or it reverses its course on economic reforms. If it's the latter, then China's economic growth will slow down in much the same way as it did for the Soviets in the 70s.

The USSR collapsed peacefully for the most part but if the Chinese regime falls, it will be much more violent imo.

I predict that China will not collapse, but will rather eventually undertake a campaign of controlled liberalization to appease the public while maintaining the dominance of the ruling party. Think of it like Gorbachev's political reforms, but at a much slower pace. After all, the Chinese political elite is going to eventually see the writing on the wall.

It'll also be much harder for them to fall considering the coming usage of AI to identify dissidents. UwU

The problem with technological progress is that it's a double-edged sword. It can oftentimes serve the interests of the political elites in increasing their control over the people, but it can also allow for the increased spread of information that can help people resist authoritarianism. It can also disrupt economies, which in China also means disrupting the political power of the political elites.

I don't see them reforming. I see them taking harsher and more brutal measures to crack down on dissent. And look at how quickly they are assimilating Hong Kong into the regime. Taiwan is next.

Indeed. We live in scary times.

You aren't wrong, though I'm convinced the point of them pushing AI is for that exact reason. Technology can be disruptive, but if you can manage the dissidents with relative efficacy and control a good portion of what's shown you have a much better position.

Being too harsh can just as easily backfire. People becoming fearful can make them submit, but it can also make them seek change in fear for their own lives being on the line next.

AI will also bring with it severe economic disruptions, which might also be a destabilizing force in China's industrial export-oriented economy. I think people generally overestimate the competence of the CCP, which is why I'm not too confident about them being able to effectively move through the challenges that China will face in this century.

I've decided a little bit more about the Harmonic Mice.
My idea is basically that the "legs" in the above picture of them (back in my other post) are actually full loops. The Harmonic Mice are incapable of disengaging from their cosmic loop. Each "Mouse" is a quantum entity that can expend energy it gains from the Vorton's charge to "discover" the exact spatial coordinates of it's atoms. This, combined with it's bond to it's partner "Mouse", causes it to gain forward momentum that it uses to give the loop itself both stability and angular momentum. This in turn allows the loop to "travel" in the wild across the Interstellar Medium so that it can accumulate more charge.
Some stellar species manipulate this for ultra-efficent drive systems, and the species that built the Berserker Probe that cleaned the Kalaronian Homeworld's Clock was a prime example of it.
