The Yellow Peril

Below are Fred Reed’s conclusions. For his supporting evidence, go here. I find it very convincing, but then I would. Pinko peacenik snowflake that I am.

To one watching the advance of Chinese science and technology, or to me anyway, several things stand out. First, the headlong pace. Second, the amount of it that appears aimed at making China independent of the West technologically and getting the United States off Beijing’s back. Third, the apparent calculated focus. It looks like intelligent design, as distinct from America’s competitive scrabbling for profit by special interests, the hope being that this might inadvertently benefit the country as a whole…

While Beijing works to benefit China, rapidly increasing its techno-industrial clout, Washington spends insanely on weaponry. It is trying to apply a military solution to a commercial problem. America crumbles economically, politically, culturally, but has the very best bombers.

You cite Fred Reed's pieces every so often here, and I've read them and read a lot of his other ones. I agree that he writes well and can be very incisive, and funny sometimes, too. But I am wondering: have you ever had a look at any of his posts about race? Specifically, about black people ... he makes David Duke like Jane Elliott or Tim Wise by comparison.
