One of the dumbest things done by the Free Trader Communists was to let Communist China become the big agricultural supplier to the world ....even though Com China has 6% arable land and its main crop area is subject to natural disasters. Com China is preparing in case their crops are destroyed. The rest of the world will starve but not the Chi Coms

Why would the rest of the world starve? Is China the only country in the world that grows food? If that were true, where are they importing all this rice from? The Moon?

China is the second-largest destination for American food exports (behind Canada). I guess they must be setting fire to all that food: they obviously don't need it.

What is a "Free Trade Communist"? Do you understand what Free Trade means?

Free Trade is the antithesis of Communism. Free Trade is a conservative ideal - it is quite simply Freedom of Association applied to economics. It means that Government does not get to tell citizens whom they may trade with.

In Communist countries - e.g. the former USSR - the poor old Soviets were on starvation rations for 70 years because they refused Free Trade. They imposed Government controls on food prices rather than letting market forces work.
