Well, the US had a good run….
DC spent the latter half of the 20th Century – and beyond – handing Communist China the US’s post-World War II global manufacturing dominance.
Which led to the exceedingly obvious:
Remember these headlines during the idiotic, government-imposed Covid lockdowns – when we started running out of…well, everything?
Except the US isn’t ending its mindless reliance on China. It’s massively expanding it.
Having spent the 20th Century destroying life for blue collar Americans? DC in the 21st Century is destroying life for white collar Americans.
DC has outsourced hundreds of millions of jobs making things. Now DC is outsourcing tens of millions of jobs inventing and developing the things we no longer make.
In 2011, in nauseating, crony subservience to the Big Thieves – Big Tech and China? DC passed the America Invents Act (AIA). Which fundamentally transformed the US patent system – and with it the country. For the very much worse, of course.
And DC’s assault on Intellectual Property (IP)? Worked like a charm.
Big Tech took maximum domestic advantage. Using the theft tools the AIA gave them – to unleash an avalanche of patent heists.
As if they needed additional DC assistance….
China, too, took maximum advantage of DC’s anti-America idiocy. By insourcing the invention sector we were outsourcing.
And China’s plans to take advantage of the advantages DC is handing them? Working like a charm.
So when a report like this comes out? Let’s just say we aren’t shocked by its findings….
Get a load of some of these report section names….
- China’s Growing Technological Dominance
- Patent Insights Showcase China’s Thriving Engineering Market
- The Tangible Growth in China’s Intangible Assets
- Chinese Inventors Relying Less on International Technology
Great news, eh?
China is inventing more and more of the things everyone on the planet uses.
While relying less and less on anyone else anywhere on the plant – including, especially, US.
And then manufacturing what they are now inventing.
Then – this enters the mix….
“The World Economic Forum (WEF) concluded in a recent report that ‘a new generation of smart machines, fueled by rapid advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics, could potentially replace a large proportion of existing human jobs.’
“Robotics and AI will cause a serious ‘double-disruption’….
All of which begs the ultimate question:
What’s left for Americans to do for, you know, actual work?
“When Americans peer 30 years into the future, they see a country in decline economically, politically and on the world stage….
“These grim predictions mirror, in part, the public’s sour mood about the current state of the country. ”
Gee, I can’t imagine why….
