All About China!

Post  0001 on 1/23/2010, 22:44

It's about time we started a discussion about China. It's politics, it's people, it's problems, lets argue about discuss them!

Yeah, and it's a big problem, we get shoddy products, and their people are way underpayed and work is sweatshops. Not a good situation...

Yeah, there's never really been an equal place in the world where either everyone was working in sweatshops or no one was. There's always one that is pinpointed. Quite sad. "/ The thing is America wont do anything about those sweatshops because otherwise they'd have to spend their money on their own workers, & their own workers will realize, "Hey! Why are we working this much & getting paid near to nothing?!" & all hell will break loose..

Nice summary, unfortunatly it is quite true indeed. It all comes down to the amlighty dollar, it's cheaper to use countries with no safety and environmental laws, so we do. Mad

Its sad how everything is based on money.. Money money money. If only everyone werent so worried about owning everything & anything in sight.. We only need the necessities ya know? & yes, the extra things are awesome, but do we really need little tinker toys from China?

Yeah I mean are they really a neccessity? It may be just me, but I think life could go on without them (I'm waiting for someone to interject below a comment about my LEGO collection, which may I remind the everybody, is in fact NOT made in China). But there is a bit of a conundrum in the fact that, if we did not pay these people, would they be worse off then they are in the sweatshops? That's a big question, and one that will not be easy to answer.

I think that really depends on the conditions of the work places & their lives outside of the sweatshops to answer that question...
I think yes, it would be better without because then they wouldnt be working themselves to death for little to nothing pay.
But atleast they have a job.. Urrr... I dont know the answer to your question actually.
Its a really touchy subject.

Yeah that's my opinion as well. I mean on the one hand, the conditions are horrid, and the pay is even worse, but at least they are getting payed. On the other, they are not getting payed at all. So which is the lesser of two evils? Oh man, I love life, it's so filled with questions such as this. Razz

Yes I would tend to agree with that. Laughing Still, this whole China thing is still going to be a splinter in Americas side if nothing is done about it.

I'm more than positive that America wont just hop right onto that horse.
We're too worried with inner law makings & Iraq to worry about ol' China...

Don't worry. China will soon go the way of the U.S.S.R. and most other Communist countries in the world. It's already very corrupt, and it's only a matter of time until they switch to capitalism and Democracy, or collapse under the weight of their terrible government.

While we're talking about China,
FREE TIBET!

Sorry, I just had to.

I totally agree, I mean look at Iran right now, that regimes days are numbered. And about Tibet, could not agree more.
