Interesting short 4 part documentary on the various long term problems China is facing, some of which the CCP created itself. This was before Evergrande. Towards the end they speculate that the recent CCP reckless (un)diplomatic aggression is their way of distracting their population from these issues.
Who knows, but I suspect it's more mundane, just Xi's hunger for power and paranoia spinning out of control. That also fits better with their cultural crackdowns.
