In my opinion all trade and deals with China should be off. The Chinese government is responsible for continued human rights violations. Yet, most countries in the world continue doing business with China. Why?
Oh, that’s easy…Money.
I am not going to point fingers or name names…I don’t have enough fingers and it would take the rest of my life to name the names of those that would never give up the money to be made from China. However, why don’t these companies or individuals set up shop in other countries where labor is cheap? Or, better yet…why not try to curve our addictions and find ways to make it on our own?
I think we are too dependent on China. This is scary because China is gaining power in the world. The Western world is bowing at China’s feet. We are held prisoners in a prison that we helped build.
Green is addictive. Just ask the Hulk.
What is money when others are paying with their lives and organs? China executes hundreds if not thousands of prisoners each year. After the execution of a prisoner, China is strongly suspected of selling the prisoners organs to people that travel to China for organ transplantes.
My husband and I watched a movie, The Island, the other night about organ harvesting of clones. This movie really made me think about the reality of something like this happening (once science figures it out) and the fact that alot of people may not have a problem with it. However, in my opinion, China is not far off from the reality. Harvesting the organs of executed prisoners is disturbing. Hey, maybe that is the next big goldmine in China? I don’t see China having ethical problems with cloning or the harvesting of clones for organs. It is scary to think about such a thing. China is one of the few countries that would be able to carry it off without many problems.
Enough sci-fi….Back to facts.
We are as dependent on China’s cheap products as we are on oil. Actually, it would be more accurate to say we are more dependent. China makes just about everything we use. I recently saw a report that China was even beginning to grow and ship cut flowers. Flowers!
What have we learned from history? Powerful people only care about power. What are a few lives anyway? Who cares about those poor Chinese prisoners…we can’t save everyone.
Funny how people only start caring when it hurts them personally. People are like fat cows chewing grass in a nice green field. They only get upset when their grass in their field is mowed. Who cares about those cows in the neighboring field? No one.
So, keep chewing or think about it!
By the way, there is hope. China may be losing it’s edge?
