Poverty Pragmatism

Human rights activists are shocked that US Secretary of State Clinton has announced that the US and China will paper over their differences on human rights. While I agree that human rights is a vital issue, apparently those activists are not shocked by the ongoing collapse of the world financial system, indeed the decline of industrialism itself.

So let us not be shocked by this US government position. The US desperately needs someone with deep pockets to finance its debt (which is of course impossible to pay back). You got anybody in mind other than China and Japan?

The name of the game is poverty pragmatism. And not biting the hand that feeds you.
