Capitalism thrives best under Communism

  1. How else to explain that China - a barbaric murderous communist regime - is our #1 loved trade partner?

    Think about it, NO pesky human or worker rights in China, NO pesky environmental laws, no overtime, no health care or Workers Compensation premiums.

    It's a haven for ruthless capitalists to exploit the means of production.

    Why do we support this murderous barbaric Communist regime?

    Don't forget, 58,000+ American bodies were worth "fighting the communists" a few decades ago. Still don't think you were lied to?
     
  2. China is THE model for the New World Order.

    Unchallengeable political dictatorship with paltry economic freedom for the plebs (to keep them happy).
     
  3. Wonder if you have ever been to China.
     
  4. Another clueless idiot spewing baseless anti-China hate.

    1. There is a minimum wage law in China. Guess who are consistently breaking it:

    "Guangzhou set the minimum wage for part-time workers at 7.5 yuan ($0.97) an hour at the start of this year, but outlets of McDonald's (MCD.N: Quote, Profile, Research), and KFC and Pizza Hut, which are part of Yum Brands Inc (YUM.N: Quote, Profile, Research), paid workers less than that, said Li Shouzhen of the All-China Federation of Trade Unions."

    2. China is making a real effort in environmental protection but it is not keeping up with the rapid growth:

    "Already, China is ahead of the U.S. on several environmental fronts. China's National Congress recently adopted stricter auto emission standards than those in the U.S., and in 2001, an article in Science reported that China's greenhouse gas emissions have declined since 1996. The Observer reports that Chinese authorities are planning to create several "eco-cities," or sustainable urban centers, to attract foreign investors and present a prototype in sustainable development. The Chinese government closed thousands of coal mines that failed to meet safety standards in 2005, and Beijing is cleaning up its urban core in preparation for the 2008 Olympics."

    3. Legal aid to migrant workers provided by the state:

    "Now the state is looking to improve workers' access to legal help. It has opened nearly 2,500 official legal aid centres since the mid-1990s."

    It's certainly a good capitalist system but it's much better than 18th century Europe or 19th century America.
