Normally I would agree but thunderf00ts video was pretty compelling and focused specifically on musks version of a hyperloop. Musks loop would never have worked and was frankly kind of insane from a safety and engineering point of view.

Look up "the silicon shield", as far as I'm aware the silicon wafer production facilities in Taiwan are crucial for businesses elsewhere. A war could potentially damage those facilities and set china back.

China would be shooting themselves in the foot if they invade Taiwan, that's why Taiwan innovating faster than everyone else is so crucial.
