If they decide to block all exports to other countries one day our economies would liekly crumble as everything become much more expensive.

In north america and such the local branches of companies merely do R&D and financials, and China's factories have copies of all the blueprints and China can nationalize all of the factories and go pure communism and default on any financial obligations.

They do a lot more than just R&D and finance. Marketing, sales, and virtually every other service is still conducted domestically. Manufacturing is what has been outsourced, not service.

Honestly, I think China just wants us wiped off the map. Just like with other countries, we're not really well liked. But, have you all noticed something? Cause we haven't had another World War or Civil War yet (although it might be on the horizon). However, I've noticed that it seems like instead of trying to take out the U.S. from outside the U.S., it's almost like they're trying to take out the U.S. from within. But, that's all I'm going to say. If anyone is curious about my political beliefs, you can message me, cause I will not tell anyone my political beliefs on a public forum.
The meaning of life is to be happy. If you are not happy, you are not living your purpose. Your emotions are your guide. If you are mostly happy and content, then you understand what life is all about. If not, then, there's a core belief you're operating under that is causing you to stray from being happy. Once you find that core belief, get rid of it. It no longer serves you. Live happily!

I'm commonly reluctant to mingle in with political sciences, mainly due to the barrier of intelligence, I guess, and because most people see things different, than I could, and it had disneuronising ( is there a word like that? ) effects, to argue with people I do not know anywhere near to close.

Well, I think, that China already owns a lot of parts in the world. It may not always own officially property, though in Africa they do quite a bit, but they own the dominion of certain structures of states and the knowledge of how to make them work for their own benefit.
There's a saying about Chinese people, that don't work, but let people work for them.
I think they have the knowledge on how to let things and people work for their benefit, whatever they want to be realised in ways that serve them, in a low noise, obscure way. This is how they own part of the USA already.

Above, someone said they would take out the US from within - I guess that pretty much describes the way of practise.

If it was true what was variously published about debt that the USA had in China, they likely might own the US in different ways

So as M.D. esq. put it, they do, what they want.
Who is going to tell them otherwise? Putin of Russia? LMAO.
Kim Yong Un is like a pet bulldog to them, Trump probably was a squaking bullfrog ... China knows, they don't have to overtake USA with guns and bombs, they are intellectually past that, or systematically. They are more alike the leafcutter ant of human civilisation. The US is growing good funghi, why bother to change much of the funghi growing business? If the need would arise, they would send in some folks or contact the ones living there in order to learn, how to best get the US to adapt to Changes, and do their thing.

About China to overtake the whole world in terms of economics or ethologic views, I'm unsettled to what other choice could be worse. If we had some kind of future islamisation, as some of the German bonkers minded fear this?
Better the Chinese would, since they usually do not kill LGBTI+.
