    In the year 2006 China had 1,313,973,713 people. That same year, the world had 6,525,170,264 people. That leaves 5,211,196,551 people not in China in July of 2006. Now, these figures are only estimates by the census, considering not everyone can be tracked, so give or take some numbers.

    In any event, that certainly isn't 3/4 of the population.

    Also; "Some 80 percent of the toys sold in the United States—from Barbie dolls to video games—are made in China. " (cited here). I'm sure with some digging you could find the world percentage for items made in China.

    That's grossly inaccurate. The Chinese do not make up 3/4ths the world population. At the most they make up 1/5th of the world's population as there are over 1 billion Chinese. And as I don't have the current population totals (nor do I have the time right now to research it) I can't give a more accurate estimate than that.
    As for buying Chinese imports, there's sometimes no help for it. I'm poor and sadly, some of the least expensive products are imported from China.
    Though I have no real problem buying things made in China. As long as they work well, it's all good to me.

    And while were at it we should stop buying cars made in Germany. It's well known that the Germans have been lying in wait for the time when they are economically able to raise a powerful army. Hitler isn't dead, he's the mastermind behind precision German engineering.

    I love how people think Osama is the threat. As if him dying would put an end to terrorism.

    Osama is nothing. He is a figurehead now. With or without him, Al Qaeda's mission will go on. It's not him that is the threat now, but insurgent groups rising up everywhere, whom are predominantly - surprise surprise - Moslem.

    And quite right, it's not China that flies planes into towers. It's China super developing, building and streamlining its military in massive proportions, its China upgrading all of the PLA's technology and training to conform with the new digital battlefield and command and control, and it's China persuing a blue water fleet including an aircraft carrier that remained unknown to US intelligence.

    Yes, Osama is the real threat.

    Not even terrorism is a realistic threat. A lot more people die in car accidents than terror attacks. Technically a "War on SUVs" would probably save more lives than the war on terror ever will.

    What is wrong with communism?

    To quote Lenin "The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them."

    The human rights abuses I disagree with.

    If most of America is too stupid to realize that they are supporting Communsim by buying Chinese products I think they deserve to face the consequences.

    Not buying anything from China is kinda hard...because well...almost everything is made in China...so it'll be hard to find something that you really like and want that is not made in China...

    If most of America is too stupid to realize that they are supporting Communsim by buying Chinese products I think they deserve to face the consequences.
    Oh, then I suppose you are also aware that near the end of his reign, Lenin realized that communism is workable only on paper and becomes a failed system in reality, and that his final proposed new economic policy over 5 years was to restore many aspects of capitalism, essentially abandoning the principles of the commune, but couldn't because he died of illness and Stalin took over.

    You knew all that when you wrote the above, right?

    Just like what everyone else said, trying to avoid products made in China would be virtually impossible. There are too many products that we use that come from there. Plus, keep in mind that most of the products that you are getting that are "Made in China" are American products that just happen to be made in china. The Chinese are assembling the products but the products themselves are American. Your "Made in China" Xbox controller is certainly American (Microsoft is an American company after all) but it is just cheaper to have it built somewhere else.

    Also, China (well, the People's Republic of China, and yes people, there is a difference between the them and the Republic of China) does not hate us nor do they have a really good reason to do so. Same thing with Germany (they are one of our top allies). China also doesn't have a real good chance of invading the United States, at least not by themselves (and the only other Communist countries they may look to are Laos and Vietnam, since they have "not-so-good" relations with North Korea and Cuba).

    So, you can stop buying products from China (the People's Republic of China) because of the fact that they are communist, as if that makes them automatically bad (I mean, both Iraq and Afganistan are Republics, in case you haven't noticed (yeah, just like the United States) although Iraq is Republic in structure not government. But, at least I know the difference) but, by doing this, you have stopped buying AMERICAN products, not Chinese.
    This is my war face.

    This is what happens to trolls who mess with me.

    Um, excuse me? That's my country you're bashing here.

    If you say not to buy things from China, then that's almost the same thing as me saying not to buy things from the U.S. As in, both of these countries are great powers in the world. Let me ask you this: what do you buy from the U.S.? Lots of things. And what do you buy from China? Lots of things. China and the U.S. are both major powers. If you can say China is "taking over the U.S.", then I can say that the U.S. is "taking over China".

    But I know that's not true. The U.S. has always had a strict policy of retaining absolute power and totalitarian gov't.

    And if China took over the U.S., (haha, that idea sounds so funny), then the whole world's economic balance would be altered. That's almost happened before. Remember World War I and II? XD One major country taking over another major country will NEVER happen. Not in 200 years at least. We've learned from past mistakes now, right? There are too many consequences. What would China gain? More land for its people? Economic resources?

    Anyway, don't get me wrong, I respect your opinion! I'm just saying that it is impossible for China to "take over" the U.S.

    And it is DEFINITELY impossible for U.S. people to stop buying Chinese products. Just... impossible.

    Actually, pretty much everything is made in china.
    Most by forced labor and sweat shops with little kids.
    Which is a better argument than the hippie one you have.

    It's China with the $2.7 trillion dollar GDP, to the US's $13.2 trillion. That's $2,054 per person to the US's $43,950 per person. Of course, I know that this isn't the only measure of a nation's success, but it only serves to show some of the disparity between these nations.

    Now, let's see. The PLA hasn't been in a war since with Vietnam in 1979. In the meantime, the US has flexed its muscle in places like Grenada, Panama, and then there's the Gulf War, Yugoslav crisis, and our current War on Terrorism. So, let's see. The US has the world's largest economy, the world's most advanced army, is the designated receiver of some of the world's most advanced technology. Conclusion- the US is the greatest threat to the world because it has the ability to meddle where ever it pleases. Am I correct?

    The fact that it's a Communist state isn't too significant. The problem is the oligarchal form of government, which has been in place since 1979 (although it can also be considered a dictatorship, at times).

    I would argue that calling the country communist is in itself now incorrect.

    As I said:

    Communism, though a good idea, will probably never be a successful form of running government, as it does not take into account human nature.
    All communism is, is a good idea. You can't build any kind of foundation on an idea that doesn't work as well to life as it does to paper. Human nature is something that can be considered, but not accounted for, as it develops differently and proceeds differently with each individual.

    Also, "human rights" are decided by humans, each having their own idea of the rights they should or do possess. Creating a general, but equal, state and law of what "human rights" are or aren't is something we, as people, have thus far been unable to completely compile and agree on. So just because person A disagrees with the violation of Human Right 1, that doesn't mean that persons B-L will feel the same. Then you have persons M-Z to consider, and Human Rights 2-the end. The possibilities of what human rights are or aren't are infinite and with every other thing that occurs, a "right" could be discovered.

    Basically, the "violation" of these "rights" is dependant on things that are incredibly fickle and varies on each situation and the people involved.

    As for "support communism by buying Chinese products", that statement is ridiculously incorrect. You don't support a form of function by purchasing products created by who uses the function.

    And Sagat's reply pretty much covers the rest.

    This is true. As I've previously stated:

    The people of China [generally 9 out of 10] hate their own government. However, it has been out of their reach to change, be it by fear or other methods. The Chinese government is in a pretty comfortable place where they have all the power and have given the people the choice to follow or die.
    Sure, once upon a time the entirety of the country vouched that communism was the right decision. But now that "fact" remains a fact of the past. You could compare the country of China to a person. Starting as a child, it grew into a teenager. In its teenage years, like most teenagers, it made choices that were good for that moment and not taking into full consideration of the future it had to plan for itself. Now older, it's having battles within itself about the choices it made in its past. And it'll be some time before the fires are quelled.

    The computer you are typing with is most likely made in China, pens are made in China, your shoes, almost everything around you. Pay attention in school and don't sleep, trust me you don't want to follow my example...>_>..

    China doesn't hate us. It can't afford to hate us. Sure it's a communist country, but guess what? It has a market economy, similar to the U.S. That means unlike other communist countries it's starting to realize "Hey I like money!" And to get that money you have to make friends with biggest wallets around, that being the U.S and other rich countries. Plus, China choosing that it's liking money means it has to lessen it's grip on power over the country. So yeah the way I see things it's eventually going to be some sort of Democracy the way China's headed now.

    alright, I know everyone is posting these giant comments that are talking about so many other different topics that all tie in, but this all I have to say. If we don't buy stuff from China, then basically we have nothing. Pretty much everyone in the U.S. is about material possessions, and look! China makes basically EVERYTHING that is sold here.
