China has simply proved in spades the truth of the old commie adage found in various forms: "A capitalist will sell you the rope you hang him with." With multinational corporations or any other business with no overriding national loyalty, profit is of course the bottom line. In the US there is even a fiduciary requirement by law to provide maximum value for stockholders.
A fix - government regulation - is not practical because "our" government has long been BOUGHT by those same corporations. So, a grassroots effort of "Made in China" equals DO NOT BUY commitment whenever possible is the only fix while, most importantly, letting the businesses involved know WHY you aren't buying their product.
Public shaming of fools who wait in line for the latest "Made in China" toy they don't actually need, like the latest iPhone, also needs to happen and covered in online alternative news sources since our Chinese money seeking corporate media and entertainment industry surely won't cover it. They should be considered collaborators with an evil regime and publicly shamed just as those who would have bought Nazi Germany's or Japan's products during WWII would most definitely have been.
Also, although this will be very difficult to accomplish with our bought government, no federal, state, or local government funds of any kind should be spent on anything made in China, any investments using same made there, or any cooperative efforts of any kind made. A conservative but INFLEXIBLE period (otherwise, like the national debt ceiling, it will be extended forever) for full activation of that ban should be used to FORCE industry back to the US.
At the very least, it should be made known that any politician whose administration violated this without China being a [temporary] sole source should be voted out of office as surely as if they'd personally raped an orphanage full of children because they will have figuratively raped the future of all children by making their future dependent upon an evil, totalitarian regime just as evil as the former Soviet Union, but FAR more dangerous as a wolf in sheep's clothing greatly enabled by a mercantilist system instead of seriously crippled by a socialist system and bound to eventually and inevitably fail as was the Soviet Union.
