    Hey, thanks. One message of the article (the first of three parts) is the Chinese rulers believe they are one to two decades ahead of schedule in the race to displace and humiliate the United States. It looks awfully bad, which propelled me to turn our 8000 words on the incredible book by Michael Pillsbury, Trump's chief policy advisor on China. Thank God!

    We will let ourselves be buried.
    I am in Canada and it is so annoying that many people here seem to have the viewpoint that the rest of the world has to help look after us. A good example is low oil prices hampering our economy.
    I understand the idea of a global economy, but when it is not working and our "lemonade stand" is not profitable, we have to look at other ideas.
    Artificial manipulation of economies and trading goes against everything we as Gulch inhabitants should stand for.
    What would John Galt, Dagny Taggart, Henry Rearden... do?
    They would stand up and show that they can look after themselves and not cater to the whims of the others.
    The world economy is supposed to work like "I, Pencil: The Movie," but when governments get involved, things get messed up.

    The best thing we can do is (on an as need basis), is to decrease legislation and regulation in certain areas and let the people create and build an independent economy.

    It is fairly complex as we are dealing with overpopulation in relation to resource and productivity based jobs, coupled with the rise of socialism, and government intervention.

    Up in Canada: If our oil isn't profitable on the world economy, we have to move forward, diversify, and look after ourselves: be it with other countries or not.

    Maybe John Galt is now running China.

    I would love to hear what Yaron Brook has to say about all of this.
    I don't necessarily like all his answers, but I can not disagree with them.

    Right now China is pulling out all the propaganda stops including blackmailing the rest of the world by halting any products to those countries who are blaming them for the outbreak of Covid19. Apparently there are also Texas drillers who are going to China for financial aid but Trump nor Fox has said anything about that. We don't need China stealing our oil. Federal govt should throw out any Chinese specialists here on temporary visas. One last thing is that The Prez should issue an executive order to stop payment on our debt China has. Varney & others on Fox thinks that's a bad idea, I disagree with them.

    Rather than china, I think the only thing that will bury the US. and likely china and the rest of the world, will come from the natural cycles: AKA, The Grand Solar Minimum.
    Every time the Grand Solar Minimum comes around, another chinese dynasty collapses. That's just History.

    Dream on china...reality will be different when you wake up.

    ...and...we haven't even touched on the 12,000 cycle, some say is due around then. (sure hope they are wrong.)

    Yeah...China will bury America, as Jstork points out here. We no longer have the testicular fortitude to win that contest. Years ago when my kids started learning French in school I had suggested to them to study Chinese instead....Can't help but still chuckle about that...

    I hope to elaborate on a few of these points in the next two parts. Second part comes Tuesday. I was amazed to discover how targeted the threats, retaliation, and pressure by the CCP is over thousands and thousands of targets. So, so often, just a call to an individual to make clear the trade off. I do not know if the huge U.S. Govt also does this, but I don't think so.

    What do you expect?
    People live on PRODUCTS...not "services".

    From the moment that Nixon created the EPA (a
    "government organization") they have been an empowered arm of the government that has been busy shutting down production in this country in the name of "environmental rights".

    The cost of product is always bi-product and there was no "recycling" in the 1970's.

    Technological advance was never added to the equation (in other words: The EPA would eventually become obsolete).

    China has no such issues. They went from "communism" to "capitalism" in one fell swoop.
