    Remember when the US was doing things like this before liberals came along and introduced regulations and unions so that now it takes 11 years to build the one world trade center?

    Above the world in 90 days: China building world’s tallest skyscraper — 220 storeys — in just three months


    America was able to build two towers in 5 years before progressives slowed everything down. How ironic, progressives slow down progress...

    I remember hearing a lot of stories over the years that China can't build anything without a high death toll and with corner cutting shoddy work. Congrats, China - you built a death trap.

    Yes Kirk is pro-China and thinks that things like OSHA and having safety inspectors are outdated liberal hogwash.

    Ok. Now I see why Kirk is pro-Chinese labor practices. When the actual globalists want to kill you, they take about 50 years with life expectancy rates going up. Instant death = liberty.

    Anti union. Self imposed rules for safety are great but when government gets in there with their bureaucrats it slows everything down.

    And if it's a laissez-faire, "hands off" government you want... you need look no further than China. No bureaucracy or government micromanaging going on in China, nosireebob.

    They just lock all of those pesky "worker's rights" rabble rouser dissidents up in prison so they can't stand in the way of progress.

    In China, the trade unions are controlled by the government... this ensures efficiency.

    Kirk approves of "the Chinese way".

    Last time I checked, China is communist. That isn't exactly a laisse-faire system of government.

    Let's not forget that China is just continually building shit they don't have a need for to prop up their economy.
    They have entire cities built that are almost ghost towns as well as a mall bigger than the Mall of America that has something like 4 stores in it.

    You should check again. They don't have a laissez-faire system of government, but they do have a vibrant private sector. And their private sector is significantly less regulated and taxed than ours.

    Yeah, that's not really true. They put democracy advocates, and government critics in prison. I'm not aware of a single jailed "worker's rights" rebel rouser.

    You're of course welcome to correct me, and name one.

    Not jailed... just murdered. Does that count?


    Plenty more where that came from...

    Sure. But not if he was jailed over the Tienanmen Square protest and then murdered because he was trying to expose his jailers. That's not "workers' rights" rebel rousing, that's anti government rebel rousing.

    Like I said, China has plenty of political prisoners. But they don't imprison people who simply petition the government for workers' rights, without doing anything to challenge its authority.

    Holy shit... seriously... where is this gumdrops and lollipops world where you live? It sounds fantastic. I really want to come live there with you. A world where the Chinese government doesn't brutally crack down on worker's rights activists. Holy shit... your world must be all like unicorns and rainbows, right?

    Ugh... and the term is RABAL rousing ferchrissakes.
