Too many Western countries have become dependent on China for technology and upon Islamic countries and Russia for oil.
Now that enemies of the West have reaped the vast benefits of this dependence, the West is diminished, and discovers that it has to wean itself from such dependence for the sake of its survival.

Shutting down the UK parliament’s TikTok account is a mere drop in the bucket. It was a ridiculous idea to have such an account to begin with.

A TikTok spokeswoman told the BBC it was “disappointing” that Parliament would not be able to connect with users of the app in the UK.
Offering to reassure the MPs who raised concerns, the spokeswoman said TikTok would be willing to “clarify any inaccuracies about our platform”….
