    Now they have a little problem over there. Maybe some of them think they can snag some black stuff.

    Of course, with a more rounded view...the relative size of the junk, African to Caucasian to Asian...I don't think that plan will work so well.
    I don't think interbreeding with Africans is in the Chinese 500 year plan.

    The commies are into knowing every thing you think, do, and say. It goes with the typical progressive liberal idea of using the government to make a better world by teaching people what they are are allowed to think, do, and say.
    Communism hasn't worked so well over there, to the extent they've dabbled in it. For Communism to work, it requires a population with extraordinary discipline and intelligence.

    The two areas it ALMOST worked, were, East Germany and Asia (China and Vietnam).

    So, as they set up their People's Democratic Republic satellites over there...the combination of the lack of discipline and resultant failure of Communism, and the Chinese instinct to be bloodily cruel to other races...like I said, it will be a process that will be interesting to watch.

    Not much of a choice, when there are not enough females to go around.

    And remember, access to sex is not the same as actual reproduction. The Chinese, like other Asians, are very-much oriented on class/caste limits. I can see a new social diktat to the extent that the lower classes, who are forced to use African comfort-women, are prohibited from having children.

    You are always free to live in the past. I am sure you still use an Atari 400. If you did switch to a PC no doubt you agree with the younger Bill Gates that 640k of memory is good enough for everyone. I do marvel that you are using the Internet to communicate. The Internet has no place in a worldview such as you espouse.


    If you "would" turn off modern conveniences why haven't you?

    The difference between us is my ability to think and reason.

    The technology doesn't. We can choose to use secure supply chains.

    One of my pet peeves is people who don't want to use technology but expect me to use it for them. For example, a man ask me every week to check on the internet for the price of gold. I pointed out finally that there was an internet cafe in every block and he said, "I don't know how to use computers."

    A retired teacher, taught German, as me to do something for her on the internet and I said, "I'll teach you how to do it." "Oh, people have showed me but you need a special kind of brain to understand that stuff." I asked if she would have accepted from a student that you need a special kind of brain to speak German.

    And, my personal favorite was the woman who lectured five men on being slaves to a watch. She wasn't a slave. She didn't wear a watch. When she ran down we went back to solving the problems of the world. Suddenly, she was leaning over trying to see my watch.

    "What are you doing?"
    "I have an appointment. What time is it?"
    "Oh, no, I'm not making you a slave to watches."
    "I'm serious."
    "Me, too." She stormed off as the other four guys laughed.

    If you don't want to learn, don't ask me to be your slave and do it for you.
