AND WE BUY MADE IN CHINA ...probably all of us everyday.
I am making it my business and personal mission to stop buying anything from China or made in China. It will be hard and know I won't be able to wean
myself totally right away... but eventually I will be CHINA FREE.
Not my government...but I will.
MADE IN CHINA is firmly implanted and synonymous with a swastika in my mind. There is no going back, no lightening up, overlooking or forgiveness.
My government may reward and ignore flagrant human rights violations and grotesque animal torture, but I can't. I don't know if my consciousness level
just went up or I just finally had the last straw. I thought US and CHINA made strange bedfellows and now it is like this "bedfellow" gave me a
disease. I can't cure myself of the filth I feel buying MADE IN CHINA unless I just stop doing it.
I've tried to avoid this but even on my drive home I see the words in my head. Maybe if I say something it will leave my mind. My mind cannot handle
this distress right now (or ever) but now it is in the member pick section and so the first thing I see. Tired of asking people to be humane. Glad so
many here are against it.
I wonder about the people who request and demand this product and others that are similar like rhino horn and whale penis, shark fins, dolphin
slaughter and dog fur.
Who are these people? Are they human like me? I would like to see a side by side comparison in every area because I doubt we are exactly the same
creature and we should not assume we are.
Why do whole nations of people accept this sort of harvesting? Keeping something alive to take a part of it and keep taking a part? This is not human
behavior. Not acceptable human behavior anyway.
Why does America and anything American associate with this country? I was thinking on the drive home we should disassociate ourselves from China. For
the human rights violations of course. Trying to figure why we put up with them now...beside we owe them money. People birth their own people and so
I think areas have more right to govern themselves than say we do to govern them. But there must be exceptions, some line you can cross. We disagree
with how people are treated but it is their country
so we let them slide and self govern. Animals belong to no country or government like I
think the people do. They are special cases.
Animals are world-community property unlike people who are sovereign unto themselves and their land. For this reason I think we should ALL have a say
in the minimum basic requirements for humanity of course toward people most acutely children and elderly and animals.
Why don't we have at least that?
This planet sucks and I'd like one that doesn't have and doesn't allow people to behave this way. I am glad that I am old and will be dead soon.
We should stop all business with Japan and China and everywhere else guilty of human rights violation and furthermore exactly this sort of animal
cruelty and torture. It is our right to represent an ideology and our government has no right to supersede our wishes. Everyone wonders and has
wondered why are we doing business with China when they are clearly and obviously red handedly guilty of numerous human rights violations?
Did we forget those, over look them, ignore them or block them out? Is that what we are doing?
It is like a mass hypnotism.
Who made the decision to allow business/ interaction with China in spite of their record of human rights violations? Did we all leave the room for a
minute and this got pushed through? I know we did not all agree on it.
So how do we protest this activity and quit/dealings with China right now?
Boycott Japan and China and their products as well as American companies that take their business there. Boycott them ourselves if our government
doesn't have the integrity or will to do so.
