Organizations that support peace are important. All governments have done good as well as evil things to others. With education one can learn to make choices that help humanity. Unfortunately sometimes these choices are shortsighted as with the last administration and create massive problems which slow the growth of peace. You are correct in advocating support for organizations that work to stem the silliness that is growing in the US and elsewhere worldwide. But education is the key. Good education.]]>
Your question to Tamaki, “Did you know that this project would consume you full time ……”, probably, a similar question applies to your website too. Various related articles in your website indicate numerous time, effort, & energy spent before publication. I understand your endurance because many years ago I worked on a web-page on the Chinese-Americans’ contribution to the development of USA.]]>
You have the courage to select “untouchable” topics and discuss it openly. That is very rare in the Chinese American community, and in the mainstream media. I salute you for that.
However, I like to encourage you to greatly improve the quality of your publications. One example is your statement “then it crosses the openly stated red line of the People’s Republic of China,”. When you raise such a point, you are obligated to tell your readers what this “openly stated red line of PRC” is, and reference your source(s). Your current publications read to me that you are stating your personal views. It lacks the authority of a carefully researched article.
Thank you. Please keep doing what you are doing, but greatly improve the quality of your publications. S. B. Woo
PS: I don’t understand your 2nd and 3rd boxes above. Please give more explanation. Thank you.]]>
The US is 30T in debt and yet the GDP is only 23T.
The US government now must borrow money to balance the budget. As such it does not have money
for many important projects such as infrastructure reconstruction, and advanced R&D research.
Lack of money is why the US is lagging behind China in technology innovations.
So if the US falls into 2nd place, and China leads, how can the US maintain world peace,
let alone the American Dream?
The Roman empire collapsed not because of its enemy, but because of financial bankruptcy.
The U.S. is marching toward a similar financial bankruptcy due to years of fiscal irresponsibility.
In the COVID-19 crisis, the US government printed over 6T (stimulus + QE) resulting in the current high inflation
that is eating away the US productivity and forcing the Fed to raise the interest rates which are
very bad for businesses. The US government now must pay over 500B of interest per year.
In a sense, the US financial condition is collapsing slowly right in front of our eyes but politicians don’t care
because they are all short-term focused.
