The west got its present supply of capital from the reinvested surplus profits of child labor, slave labor, unsafe labor etc. The Chinese are building up their supply of capital through the exploitation of their people, so when their exploitable resources are used up, they will have the capital to invest in the next level of technology, education etc. just like us. The communists of the west, unions, etc. want the chinese to pay for expensive union labor and safety regimes so they will not have capital enough when their resources run out, and will have to borrow the capital from western union banks, at 14% interest.

With climate change, the U.S. is becoming a desert. They need an influx of water in vast quantities. To facilitate this, the CIA has infiltrated the Quebec government to lead Quebec to independence. Canada will then be free to sell the St. Lawrence river to the U.S. for trillions of dollars. Quebec will get french stop signs. Follow the money.

There's probably a textbook somewhere that gets through to someone who is not reached by the textbook provided. But the provided textbook is mandatory because its publisher bribed someone (school board member, teacher, politician etc.) to make the useless textbook mandatory.
