An email arrived this morning from IFTF’s Jason Tester with the subject header: "What if France is making a backup copy of itself in China?"
The scenario, laid out by Super Colossal, is this:
- In the town of Tianducheng in Zhejiang province, the Chinese people are hard at work replicating French architecture, complete with its own Eiffel Tower clone.
- So the Chinese are copying instead of innovating again, nothing new right?
- But what if France, not China, was responsible for this construction.
- What if France was backing itself up, physically, just in case?
