Cheap crap has already poisoned our pets, endangered our children, and flooded our armed forces with millions, if not billions of fake parts (according to a warning from the US military that Harper ignored because he's too busy sucking up to the Chinese, so he can pump them oil and make them our new colonial masters like Britain and Americas before them). When our economies suffered because of manufacturer defection and lowered earning capacity, they buy up our debt. They control our economies, tell our politicians what to think, and have rendered our planes and tanks useless. All without firing a shot or sending one soldier across their border.
And the kicker is that the ideas on how to make the cheap crap come from us, either stolen by internet, or given by us to be sold back to us. They don't need an army. They have us. The Chinese corporation's cheap crap rules the world. No wonder their economic growth, another term for corporate profit, is so huge. We should all be like them.
However, the Chinese themselves may be our best allies. As their growth creates a larger middle-class, they will want cheap crap of their own. They might even want good crap and other things like rule of law and democratic rights. When the shareholders realize that the CEO and board don't own the corporation, there may be some "reorganization of their business model". That too may spread world-wide.
When a billion people ignite their spirits in a united cause, who knows what might happen?
