Nancy Pelosi introduced she would go to Taiwan to assist its standing as a free democratic nation. The Chinese language oligarchy instantly jumped up, pounded it is collective chest and howled dire threats of “severe penalties” if she performed the go to.
She ignored the hisses and snarls of the Chinese language oligarchy, carried out the go to in defiance of the tried intimidation dedicated by the Chinese language slave army, supported Taiwan as a democratic state, after which refused to apologize for ‘offending’ the hyper authoritarian tyrants of Beijing. In doing so she confirmed she has extra spine, extra guts and extra of a pair different issues than massive dangerous wrassler John Cena, who after referring to Taiwan as a rustic instantly bowed earlier than the slave homeowners and murderers operating China to grovel out an apology of their language.
China is in some ways probably the most horrific, oppressive, authoritarian, tyrannical regime on earth. The tiniest trace of free speech, dissent, individualism, unbiased thought, and many others is immediately crushed underneath overwhelming pressure. China retains tens of millions of its individuals in live-in factories the place the circumstances are so horrible that the dormitories have suicide netting to maintain state labor items (Often called ‘individuals’ in different nations) from leaping to their deaths to flee. As an various, they’ve open and trustworthy slave labor camps generally known as ‘prisons’ the place circumstances are even worse. Anybody even mentioning a labor union or staff rights might be despatched to at least one immediately.
China has developed the follow of “identification genocide” (My time period) that’s primarily based on destroying any doable sense of identification a individual may need past “Silent obedient submissive regulation obeying Chinese language citizen #XXXXXXXXXXXX”. Thus any faith is forbidden because the Chinese language dictatorship cannot enable the individuals to consider in something extra highly effective that it. Any nationwide or ethnic sense of identification is hunted down and crushed, any philosophy is persecuted by bloody pressure and even any movie star who turns into ‘too common’ can discover themselves pressured to ‘retire’, typically giving a lot of their cash to the authorities for the privilege of not being merely ‘disappeared’.
A preferred and worthwhile method of coping with even minor dissent is to ‘execute’ (homicide) the dissidents and promote their organs on the transplant market. (China is definitely not a communist nation, it is a hyper capitalistic one the place even human lives and organs are commodities for the rich to monetize.)
I am proud to be a democratic voter after I see a democrat chief spit within the face of such a regime. As to China’s darkish mutterings about ‘dire penalties”, yawn. The large dangerous Russian army has been uncovered as a paper bear, rendered virtually comically impotent by a long time of graft and corruption from being ran by kleptocratic oligarchs. China runs underneath an identical system and thus their army is more likely to be a paper dragon. (Word: America and China have each simply adopted new assault rifles for his or her militaries. The American one is an extended ranged, extra highly effective and correct one meant to interact prime line army forces geared up with trendy physique armor. The Chinese language one is smaller, weaker, shorter ranged and clearly not meant to interact a trendy army opponent, however is good for massacring unarmed and unarmored civilians.)
As to nuclear weapons, the Oligarchs in china know if it involves that they may die together with the slaves and peasants, so it will not come to that.
So what if we do have an enormous break up with China? Sure it is going to harm us, however the authorities might order an emergency industrialization drive, like in WW2 the place business was pressured to assist the warfare effort. New factories might be constructed quickly within the ‘rust belt”, a brand new labor pressure could possibly be skilled as they have been being constructed and we might have a home digital business in a couple of years. Our nice era suffered a few years of inconvenience to win WW2, we will do the identical to free ourselves from dependency of Chinese language digital. (Psst! Hey, I’ve had the identical funds smartphone for a few 12 months now, you can stay with out upgrading yours each 6 months. Get a case and lanyard for it to maintain from dropping it and it may possibly final a pair years.)
We are able to exchange China as makers of our electronics with some effort and time . How can they exchange us as their market? Perhaps it is time for a showdown with China. They brag about not doing analysis as they only steal everybody else’s innovations and advances, perhaps its time to cease shopping for our tech from their slave labor factories and feeding their Oligarch economic system .
To not point out rebuilding our working class.
