We must stop helping China become more threatening

If Communist China ever goes to war with the United States, which side is victorious may depend on who has most effectively mastered and brought to bear an exotic technology called quantum computing. It can enable myriad forms of weaponry to be vastly more powerful, survivable and/or lethal.

Unfortunately, scientists at US and other Western universities are reportedly actively helping a Chinese research team led by the “Father of Quantum,” Pan Jian-Wei. While Pan denies it, an American corporate intelligence firm has determined that he works with the Chinese military. In China, everybody works for the military if the Communist Party tells them to.

Scientists, companies like Google and Wall Street firms like MSCI that are helping the People’s Liberation Army become more dangerous are aiding the enemy. It’s high time they’re stopped before they get a lot of us killed.
