Storyline

In 2001, China joined the World Trade Organization with the strong support of a Democratic President and Republican Congress. Before the ink was dry on this free trade agreement, China began flooding U.S. markets with illegally subsidized exports while the big multinational companies that had lobbied heavily for the agreement rapidly accelerated the off shoring of American jobs to China. Today, as a result of the biggest shell game in American history, China has stolen millions of our jobs, corporate profits are soaring, and we now owe over $3 trillion to the world's largest totalitarian nation. This film is about how that happened... and why the best jobs program for America is trade reform with China. Written by Anonymous

Full of lies

Continues....

At the end of the film, a statement full of anger came out as "it is not people's, it is not a republic, so stop saying that, because it is a lie" who should be the judge of if the country is their people's, their own people, or a foreigner? Chinese will have complaints of their own country, their own government, like everyone in every country does, but would Chinese people vote for overturning the communist party and believe whatever a foreigner told them that is best for them? Less than 1% would. The Chinese government and the Chinese people are together, at least to any foreign threat. If someone tries to cause political instability in the country, they'll have to go against 1.4 billion people, because they've been through instability, they knew how it was like than they would do anything to protect their peaceful lives.

Also, Tibet is free. Not a single Tibetan I know would like to see they lose the support from the central government and to be an individual country. Tibet is a place with very harsh natural environment and the government is pouring in tons of money every year to support local economy, education, health and other public welfare. I suggest everyone that thinks Tibetans are under suppression by the central government to go to Tibet and talk with real Tibetans, in Tibet. All ethnic groups in China are treated with equal respect. Ethnic minorities will have advantages in policies on education, health care, and job opportunities. All ethnic groups in China are living in peace and harmony, I don't understand why someone just hates to see it so much.

Religion is free in China. Government does not do a single thing to suppress free religion. There are tons of temples all over the country where people go visit. You cannot even get in some of the famous temples without planning ahead because they are so popular and so many people go there. However if being religious free means everyone has to believe in a certain religion, or better be Christian, sorry Chinese people cannot do that. Being free means people get to choose what to believe on their own willingness, not having to believe something. Religion is not popular in China is because China in its 5000 years of history was never, ever, a religion politically controlled country. Religion has always been a personal choice, for personal purpose, but not having any political power as what happened in the European middle age. I believe that is indeed the true meaning of "free religion". Chinese people are always against religion being used as a political tool, so they are very sensitive to not believe in something sugar-coated as religion, but with a political core. China was never a religion mind-controlled country even in the ancient and not-so-literate era, we are very proud of that and we are not going backwards to let religion be used as a mind-control and political-purposed tool.
