Are you particularly good at building and using flamethrowers and guitars? You may have to have lots of patience waiting for the collapse, and use the time to build your instrument, weapon and mobile amplifier. I personally think you might better spend your time.

First off, the Chinese are pathetically incapable of governing
themselves. It seems that almost any other ethnic group can just walk
into China and take control. The Huns, the Mongols and the Manchus
each easily defeated the Chinese government, and each ruled China for
centuries, before the Chinese figured out what was going on.

Then when Mao took control in 1949, he initiated the Great Leap
Forward and the Cultural Revolution, two of the stupidest policies of
any country in the history of the world, and destroyed the economy for
decades. Deng Xiaoping restored some temporary sanity to China's
government, but now Xi Jinping is totally insane again, thinking that
by paying for infrastructure projects with debt trap diplomacy in
dozens of countries means that China will rule the world.

Yes, China will inflict enormous damage on America and the world, but
China itself will be destroyed, and the only question is what ethnic
group will march in and take control. I vote for the Central Asian
Turkics, including the Uighurs and Kazakhs, whom the Chinese are
currently enslaving and unsuccessfuly trying to exterminate. They
will get their revenge.

As for Russia, they were governed by China when China was governed by
the Mongols, and Russia was China's bitter vassal in the form of the
Mongol Yoke for almost two centuries. The Russians and Chinese hate
each other, and will never get along peaceably for long.

Nonetheless, the Russians have managed at least two empires -- the
Tsarist empire and the Soviet empire, and they have an Orthodox
Christian center. So the Russians (and the Turks and the British) are
able to do something that the Confucian Chinese are incapable of. So
I suppose that it's possible that there will be a new Russian empire,
formed from eastern Europe, Central Asia, and possibly China. But I
wouldn't expect more since, unlike the Chinese, the Russians love
Americans and Western Europeans.

When the grid goes down, spices will be valuable. Lack of refrigeration, storage, and transport will increase demand for spices by multiples. Spices will be a store of value and a basis for world trade, as they were in the dark ages.
I'm trying to figure out if you are serious here, and no I'm not baiting you. If you are serious, who is gonna have spices in bulk that is even the least bit practical, apart from salt which we require as living organisms?

Now even "spices" are better than bitcoin, this is quite rich.
In the coming dark age, bitcoin will go to zero. Don't know how many times we have to say it.
Each time you say it, it just goes higher. Thanks for that.

You've been pretty clear that the Chinese will instigate the next world war (directly, as they already have started it now and in the past decades indirectly) but do you think they will be the first to use a nuclear weapon on another nation? Or will that be India-Pakistan, or will it be in the Middle East (Iran/Israel)?

My vote goes to the China being divided between Japan, the Tibetans, the Uighurs, and rebel cliques in the southeastern part of the country.

That's a great thought! Divide China up into four parts, just as Nazi
Germany was split into four parts after WW II.

China should really be divided up into 10-15 countries with Hong Kong and Macau being city states or reverting back to colonial rule.

The Tibetans just want their country back, not the territory of others.

I suspect your 10 to 15 cultures is high. There are two big river valley cultures, the bread eaters and rice eaters, which are the core of China. Those will be hard to split. Around the edges are lots of picked upon people who had the misfortune of being too close to the bully on the block. Those might conceivably have enough of their original culture intact to be constructively split off. Tibet and Uyghur might be among those.
