Not really, Chinese and Russians have been travelling for decades now, are they any less insular or deranged or nationalistic?

Americans have been the parody tourists from the beginning - same question
About a billion times more travel has been done in the last five decades than in the entire history of this planet, yet we're still facing existential threats from two nationalistic nations.

Meanwhile in Australia... we have farms bigger than various european nations. Wouldn't it be stupid if each farm had a different language, system of govt etc, isn't it about time they all stopped being petty nationalists and went over to speaking english?

totally unhinged.

didn't nixon's in-person visit to china literally defrost relations and usher in a whole new era of US–china diplomacy?

i wonder what's more conducive to the future of the planet and our chances of avoiding global war: everyone closing their borders permanently and refusing to make contact with any other nation, or mutual interchange and exchange? make u think!!!

australia is very big. it's important for dilbert that you know this. a helluva lot of his arguments seem to rest on the fact that 'australia big'. don't ask, i don't know either.

Er not exactly, China upped their game in the Vietnam war and redoubled their ""Hide your capacities, bide your time." strategy.
They fooled Nixon into believing something had been achieved but nothing was.

Still not an argument for schlubs to fly around to stand in bars.

Neither seems to work, and the average peon travelling achieves exactly nothing.

make u think!!!
You should try it.

How many books have you read on Vietnam? I thought your primary interest was WW2, yet not very well read on that either.

Revisited bookmarked internet novel I'd been lazily skimming some years back, turned out it was taken down by the author. Apparently they were going to re-edit the whole thing and self publish. I wish them luck, but a lot of that seems to turn into "and then they were never heard from again."

Was halfway through to the current point when I left off. Time for a good old round of wayback machine.

i'm pretty sure dilbert has literally said 'yeah, australia's co2/capita stats are world-high, but our co2/km is very low'. that's how fucking retarded and dishonest that guy is.

Imagine if the entire world had the same per-capita emissions as the worst offenders. Imagine expecting all countries but yours to tighten their belts so your own gut can hang out unimpeded. It's baffling.

until, of course, he wants to accuse you of being responsible for another host nation's per capita stats.
