Your body has grown up and inflated to several times its infant dimensions but your mind is still that of a new-born baby. What use is there in the labour market for someone like you?

I'm already grown up. You, however, have a long way to go. Nobody else here whines, as much as you do, about Communism being illegal in the United States, despite the fact that there is a perfectly legal official "Communist Party" political party.  As a matter of fact ... nobody here whines as much as you do, period.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

I think the USA is doing to China what the British once did to China. That is, the British used guns and opium in the 1840's to control and weaken the Chinese government and their people.

The US government is forcing tariffs on many items from China being imported to the US. This includes items such as steel, aluminum, electronics, and so on. Trump claims to be doing this to stop intellectual property theft and trade imbalances. China was already planning to improve the situtation of intellectual property theft in later years, but now Trump is trying to force China to make changes immediately.

As for the trade imbalance, I feel the problem lies entirely with the US people. The wealth of each American is much higher than anywhere else in the world. Many Americans live in mansions, driving luxury cars, go on exotic trips around the world several times a year, etc. There is a trade imbalance between China and the US because the US wants more and more stuff. They are never satisfied with what they have. If China gives in to Trump's demands, within a few years, Trump will make more demands from the Chinese government and it's people. It'll never end - China will only be poorer and the US richer.

Making any changes in China that benefits the US at this time would hurt China because the Chinese people are not ready to make this transition. China is still, in some ways, a developing nation when compared to the US. For example, wages in China are still low compared to the US. Also, the technology is not as advanced in some places in China as compared to the US - especially in the countryside.

The best way, in my opinion, to fight the US, is to use the recent example on immigration where Trump caved in to political pressure. He is sensitive to having a negative image, so the best thing to do is hit America hard and fast with higher tariffs and more than what Trump is applying. And do not target only his base with tariffs, like the Chinese government is doing now. Target all Americans. Americans are particularly weak when it comes to hardship. Look at the Vietnam War. Many Americans supported the war in the beginning, but became more negative as it continued and impacted their lives. Harder and faster tariffs that negatively impacts the lives of the all US people will have the same effect.

The Chinese government should also reach out to their people and encourage them to boycott American goods. Make them understand that it is important for them now and for their children in the future, in terms of prosperity of the Chinese.

The biggest IP theft in the world is in the USA.
The scientists, engineers, and technicians have to sign away their rights to anything thing they come up with in order to be employed.
They have to sign it away to the rich business owners.
