If this is the Asian century they talked about, then thanks but no thanks. A collective and corrupt to the core Borg.

 between 100,000 and 1,000,000 imprisoned in “reeducation camps,

And that’s just in one province. This is 2018 right?

Whats remaining of the free world must rally.

China Uncensored is an awesome and entertaining YouTube site for those that want to keep their hand on the pulse. Collectivism, communism and socialism ; guaranteed road to hell. Don’t sell your souls!

World population, 7.6 bllion. China's population, about 1.4 billion. Percent of world population that is Chinese, about 18%, a little more than 1 out of every 6 people. It would be strange if China did not have an impact on what goes on in the world.

The most important topics are, what can we do to stop global warming, what can we do to stop the population explosion, and can we prevent nuclear/biological warfare? Creating an environment where all people have a chance to live happily and productively would be nice, but is impossible if we do not address the topics of global warming and the population explosion.

Stop investing in China. Shift trade from china to diversified sources. Reduce China's ability to economically bully via trade. And at all times do not cooperate with dictatorships unless its to save the planet, and even then keep a sharp eye on them. If there is ever a regime change in China and they become democratic then we can welcome them to the world community with open arms. Until then, don't do anything with them that makes them more dangerous to the world. Easier said than done, but for everyone's sake it must be done. Many in China would welcome freedom if they had a real chance to gain it.

We all know that when workers and manufacturers have a level playing field, they can compete against anyone.

But when bad actors like China refuse to play by international trade rules, all economies lose.

After China joined the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001, Chinese competition cost the United States alone 2.4 million manufacturing jobs between 2001 and 2008.

This year, the United States Trade Representative found that Chinese companies, often sponsored by the Chinese government, steal up to $600 billion in valuable intellectual property from U.S. companies alone.

It’s time to take a stand against bad actors like China who harm our economic interests and use unfair trade actions that disadvantage workers all around the World.

*“The Chinese government has subsidized plywood dumped by Chinese companies in American markets. Last year, the U.S. took action and assessed anti-dumping duties, which allowed Columbia Forest Products to re-hire workers in Wisconsin, Maine, Vermont, North Carolina, Oregon, Virginia, and West Virginia. Unfortunately, China is circumventing the duties, threatening to undo our progress. we need to crack down on trade cheating from China.” *Gary Gillespie, Executive Vice President of Columbia Forest Products, USA.

Maybe we need to start posting the names and pictures and where these geezers actually live that are in control of Communist China!

We don't need any more Tibets!
