I don't think I understand your point with the food chow arsenal.  Are you saying that such a place was inadequate to those of West, less technologically advanced (technical stagnation)? An continuing with thought that Prince Gong perhaps didn't recognize such a lack in technological development when creating this place.
Also, you mentioned that college board only needs one to know one example of the empires that collapsed.  How am I to know which one they would test me on? In other words, If I know the Qing only, how would I know of Ottoman and Russian collapse(if appeared on the exam) if chosen not be the one to know? Or are these explanations in other videos?
Thank you! I really enjoy the time and detailed well planned videos created.  (They really make you think!)Thanks again!
