>But I also imagine that it is hard for the Chinese Government to come to terms with the world valuing the lives of the Chinese people when the World did not hold the Japanese to account for many of the atrocities that were committed against the Chinese in WWII.

Let's say for the sake of argument that 60% of everyone has to die before the end of the century to get the population down. Who whom? (Did Lenin say that?) None of us matter or not very many. Our cynical leaders militarise the borders while denying the problem. There will be all these sick addicted broken poor people stumbling around in the ruins left by the plunder of capital. I hope to God they go to the moon.

The casualties in the east were of the same scale as those of the west. I guess that is around 60M in total. Lessons were learned (but not in Japan so much), and now are almost forgotten. This is Dwight Eisenhower in 1953.....

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.
This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter with a half-million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. . . . This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.[1][5]

What are we supposed to make of that when we look around us now? And the corporate Democrats are no better than Trump. Missiles are fired illegally, people die, and he becomes president for everyone. The beauty of our weapons. Bit of a death wish going on? I feel it myself: just get it over with.
