You mean steal back the tech they stole and copied from us?

They copied all that tech with the eager help of US executives who actually got bonuses for outsourcing our competitive advantages to China.

Sure, globalization lowered production costs by moving to a country with primitive labor and environmental laws, but it also put millions of Americans out of work at put us at a long-term disadvantage.

China is amazing; the technology they have invented over 50 centuries is impressive. Let me list the most well known ones.

1. chopsticks 2. firecrackers 3. noodles 4. rickshaws (why have pesky animals pull you around when a human can do it?) 5. tea 6. silk 7. selling daughters into slavery to repay debts

I forgot the food, but although they have amazing stuff, other cultures have invented some fine food, e.g. In-n-Out Burger.

Snarky comment aside, Patrick is 100% correct.

Yeah, they are totally ahead technologically. Remember that time when Chinese companies were prohibited from delivering components to a giant US phonemaking company and the fucking thing folded in mere days... Or was it the other way around?

You mean we need to innovate more shit to give China.
