Ahh yes another of the China promoters crawls out of the woodwork. Gold medal and all. Yes China buys it influence around the world as well.On the other hand it's lifted nearly a billion people out of poverty in the past 40 years and no I'm not a 50 center. I just don't get my 'facts' from the Daily Express...
None of my previous 'posts/facts' were anything to do with the Daily Express??
Isn’t it the duty of any Government to lift its population out of poverty?
If it has only been, according to you, in the 'past 40 years’, then all I can say is that it is a bit behind the US and Western nations, who have in the past 100’s of years, been making major societal social and economic efforts to better their population’s lot.
I, and anyone else, will freely admit the gigantic strides, economic and social, that China has achieved in the last few years. And if examined more closely, can be seen to be down to cyber theft of intellectual property on a massive scale, a seeding of Chinese students throughout the free worlds University’s, places of research all taken back to China, and reproduction on a truly vast scale of the intellectual and scientific advances of more advanced countries.
It has, by producing cheap labour on a vast scale with its vast population, an alternative sweat-shop to undercut other countries work forces, and very cleverly obtained the know how and knowledge accordingly to become the producer to the world of cheaper good than can be produced in China instead of in the countries who had developed the techniques to produce these good in the first place.
They have worked hard. They have had little compunction about not abiding by what the rest of the world consider to be acceptable standards.
If these, the CCP, are who you consider to be worthy of your admiration, loyalty and adulation, then it certainly gives the rest of us on the Forum, a measure of who you are, what you believe in, and to where your loyalties are beholden.
