Totalitarian Yin and Yang?

Xi suppresses and starves his own people (much like his predecessor Mao).

Xi distributes largesse to foreigners to compromise them and ensure their obedience (e.g, the Bidens, Eric Swalwell, various universities and media companies and, likely, Mitch McConnell).

Deprivation and Largesse. Both employed to consolidate power. Totalitarian Yin and Yang?
