Americans Need To Stop Funding The Chinese Gulag

Ben Weingarten, The Federalist

For decades banked on the world prioritizing money over all else. With China erecting modern gulags and threatening a new Tiananmen in Hong Kong, we in the West cannot avert our eyes from the tyranny we have been underwriting any longer. The vested interests of some Americans in this relationship cannot begin to outweigh the long-term strategic consequences, and the losses suffered by others in an artificial and ultimately self-defeating creative destruction that has taken place. The fundamental question ultimately we must ask is do we wish to be the proverbial capitalists selling the Communists the rope with which to hang us after their own? Woke Capital and its allies in the political establishment owe the American people an answer.
