Another great reason to NOT buy things made in China:
for the last fifty years the Chinese government and army has been carrying out a literal genocide in Tibet. I recently started doing a lot of reading about Tibet, for spiritual reasons, and discovered this hidden, ongoing problem.
China invaded Tibet in the late fifties and killed over one million people. They destroyed six thousand monasteries. They still use torture (yes, we are not the only ones) in prisons. They enforce sterilization of tibetan women in their twenties. For simply going to a demonstration, people are thrown into prisons for decades. decades. Within, they are starved and used as slave labor.
It is religious and cultural and human destruction. When I finally realized all this about a month ago, it really helped me to STop buying MIC toys.
