(Athena Thorne – PJ Media) I don’t think I need to tell anyone who reads PJ Media that China is the United States’ greatest existential threat and geopolitical enemy. They steal our intellectual property. They hack us and spy on us. They trade and form military alliances with our enemies. They colonize, buy, and assimilate territory all over the world at a frightening rate. And they’ve infiltrated the U.S. to a shocking degree already, evidenced by our increasingly authoritarian government-global corporation complex.
Back in my youthful Ayn Rand phase, the libertarian in me loved the idea of a global marketplace. My strong anti-collectivist tendencies made me despise labor unions (I’m still not a fan) to the extent that I believed America needed to be punished by being out-competed until they reformed their Marxist ways. Now that I’ve matured a bit, I understand that our foreign competitors don’t play by the same rules Americans do: they straight-up employ slave labor, so of course their prices are better; they steal our intellectual property; and they place onerous tariffs on whatever we try to sell back to them, giving themselves a massive trade advantage. I’ve also come to realize that it’s up to our great 50 states to outcompete one another in the realm of unionized labor and other regulation-related costs that are passed along to consumers. And these days, the interstate competition is white-hot. Freedom and commerce-loving states like Texas and Florida openly poach businesses away from restrictive progressive-fascist places like New York, California, and New Jersey. In return, these liberal states do whatever they can think of to keep driving businesses away. (Who can forget Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s euphoria at destroying Amazon’s plans to build a new headquarters in her district?)
