In the case of dictatorships, it is wise to remember that the problem stems from the form of government, not from the people. As someone who has spent a reasonable amount of time in foreign countries, I have learned that – if left to themselves – people throughout the world can get along just fine. It is the governments that screw it up.
The Chinese people have proven time and again that they are generous, intelligent, friendly, and that they just want what all people want. They want a decent home, a good job, and the ability to raise their children in a happy, healthy way.
Unfortunately for the Chinese people, their government is a Marxist dictatorship. If you are not a member of the communist party, you are simply a pawn in a very big chess game. It is well to remember that Mao Tse Tung (or Mao Zedong today), the founder and lifelong dictator of China, was responsible for the murder of tens of millions of his own people.
In China today, the average tourist will see what the Chinese want them to see. They won’t see the prisons, where anyone who speaks about freedom or liberty will find themselves lost for years. They won’t see the horrific labor situation, where people work excruciating long shifts making your fancy telephone, your clothes, or your furniture, yet they live in a drab, miserable slum next to the factory.
Recently, Chinese generals have said that they should prepare for war. They are expanding their navy and are seeking to dominate the seas around Asia. A China/Japan war (over a small chain of islands) is a distinct possibility.
Now we learn that the Chinese are on a buying spree as they swallow up large sections of America. Local and state governments say it is just Chinese companies who are building businesses that will employ Americans. They seem to forget that everything in China is controlled by the communist government; and this includes the businesses. If American companies asked to buy property in China, you know what the answer would be.
We just won’t learn, will we?
The Chinese Are Acquiring Large Chunks Of Land In Communities All Over America
The American Dream
March 31, 2014
Has the United States ever experienced a time when a foreign nation has attempted to buy up so much of our land all at once? As you will read about in this article, the Chinese are on a real estate buying spree all over America. In fact, in some cases large chunks of land are actually being given to them. Yes, you read that correctly. China is on the way to becoming the dominant land owner in the entire country, and that is starting to alarm a lot of people. Do we really want a foreign superpower to physically own so much of our territory?
There are some that are playing down this threat by making a distinction between the Chinese government and Chinese corporations, but things work differently over in China than they do here. In China, the government is involved in everything. In fact, 43 percent of all corporate profits in China are produced by companies that the Chinese government controls. And all of the rest of the companies are very careful to follow the lead and direction of the Chinese government.
