David Rockefeller went to China in 1973. He came back and told the NY Times that China's social experiment was the greatest in human history, and that China's form of society is the future of humanity. Nelson Rockefeller become Nixon's vice-president. Supposedly, "Nixon opened up China," but why were the Rockefellers so interested in China, and why have American business leaders been sending our manufacturing to China ever since? Was there a long-term goal in mind, and if so, what was it?
If China is some sort of threat to America, why do we keep supporting them by destroying our own manufacturing capacity, and building theirs? Why do we keep buying from them, and not from ourselves? Is it possible that our leaders want to bring America down so that they can somehow build themselves up? But that would imply that there is someone who would benefit from our destruction, and they are our own leaders.
To say that simple greed is the reason makes no sense. As Stalin said, "The capitalists will sell us the rope we'll use to hang them." But, Reagan went whole hog against the Soviets. Why not China, though?
Are there any history experts that can answer any of these questions without wild conspiracy theories? Thanks.
