The real problem with our making out with Communist China in my opinion, is the very radical differences between the Chinese way of thinking and the American way of thinking.
China is mono-ethnic.
It has an economy which absorbs foreign technology, in a way which absorbs the technology itself. It is very much oriented toward always advancing technologically.
We on the other hand are all about “sharing”.
That was ok for a while. But now China is bigger than America.
That is to say, China EXPORTS more than America.
We continue to operate like we’re the biggest guy on the block, and nobody really pays attention to the fact China has already passed us.
China has an aggressive, race-based system designed to overtake other countries.
It did not have to be this way, but we have developed China into a threat.
It is time to begin behaving that way.
We cannot continue to send industries there.
That has already gone on far too long.
I couldn’t agree with you more, but I sure don’t see us turning around any time soon.
