“Made in China” is clearly a damaged brand in the wake of the Chinese Communist Party pandemic that is perhaps its most notorious example.
Americans have awakened to the horrifying reality that their lives are now profoundly impacted by what comes from China. And much of what China provides can be – and in some cases is being – weaponized, by withholding it, by adulterating it or by utilizing it for the CCP’s own purposes.
For instance, thanks to decades of predatory trade practices, the Chinese produce our medicines, hygienic masks, gloves and gowns, clothes and shoes, gear for the electric grid, hardware, drones, phones, silicon chips and other electronic equipment and the rare earth minerals from which they are manufactured.
The made-in-China virus is our opportunity to begin ending an unsustainable practice of relying on other things produced there. Boycott China.
