The massive pollution in all the Olympic venues is being amply touted in the western press. However the cause of the pollution is forgotten, as the health issues are the focus. Olympic committee has announced it will even reschedule or move events indoors from the problems. China’s answer to the problem is to ban all automobiles and close all nearby factories – yet that only cut a small percent of the pollution.
The health issues are of great importance and I should not like to minimalize them. I want to focus on why and how of that pollution is being created and what it represents.
China is now the production center for the Industrialists. Every major Globalist corporation, and even mid tier company, is moving there to set up shop where labor costs are negligible and pollution is condoned. They are opening every kind of manufacturing they can get away with including lead painted toys and toss away faulty electronics. In China labor is cheap. People want to avoid the word slave labor but these people are working for rice. Manufacturing tools, clothing and materials that will sell for 100’s times the value are created for export on the backs of a billion Chinese.
The scale of this production machine seems to have been lost on most readers and you just have to take a moment to understand it. With billions of Chinese in the lower poverty level as substandard wage workers and a small percentage allowed the privilege of power the multi-national corporations have found a most willing partner to expand industry and profits. This allows the big multi-national Globalist companies to report increasing profits to a cheering Wall Street hiding the news that nothing is manufactured in the West anymore and their economy is a mere bag of shells.
Americans and Europeans have enjoyed the cheap tools, cars, cloths, but have they considered how it was produced, shipped and sold at profit to you at these cheap prices? Who does not marvel at Wal-Mart? Most of us understand we could never make these items ourselves at these costs and some things are simply impossible to create without negating labor costs. China is the last vestige where a massive slice of humanity is under a harsh regime that keeps them at hard labor with little reward and is now selling it out to accumulate massive wealth.
The results can easily be seen at the Olympics in the form of impenetrable poisonous smog covering all their cities. Recent actions closing down nearby industry and auto traffic to clear the air for the Olympics did little. The massive industrial output through slave labor is making China a power that is embraced by the Globalist agenda and the clouds over the Olympics are a reminder of what is going on.
The US and Europe are already feeling the crunch of their devalued paper currency as they print more of it diluting its effect trying to pump up bankrupt banks whose corrupt loans raped the people. With high labor costs in the West there is no more serious manufacturing competition and only specialization remains an option to survive. In the end dependence on the Dragon will be complete.
So as the fog of China’s industrial revolution is celebrated with poisoned air you might ponder the reason behind a world that not only allows it but also regales it at the Olympics.
