Lithuania closes embassy in China after last diplomats leave (over Taiwan)

we should be more like Lithuania

China could be the greatest government and greatest nation on the planet. All they have to do is do the opposite of whatever fuckery they doing now.

God I want to root for China for so bad but in this day in age I wouldn't give a fuck if Brainiac just up and abducted the whole country, minus Hong Kong, Xinjiang, China Mongolia, and Tibet, and put China into a hyperbolic time chamber until they get their fucking shit together. You know, give Chinese freedom of speech, voting rights, gay rights, etc. And stop threatening Taiwan and Japan.

Why does China get to kill 40 million Chinese and the people responsible get to stay in power?

Why does China get to steal every fucking IP and allowed to participate on the world stage?

Why does China get to protect North Korea which is holding millions of Koreans hostage?

Why?

are still enablers. They care only about profit and not country. I firmly believe that Trump would never have been elected and the right-wing would not have half the support it has at present, if those millions and millions of manufacturing jobs shipped overseas in the past decades were still here in America. The anger in the Trump base is economic. Economics is the only way to solve the divisiveness our country faces. Bring the jobs back.
