          I hope this is only the first step towards the final expulsion of China from the American, and possibly the world market. And there, you look, China will tear itself and again become what it should be - poor, weak and backward. The countries of socialism should be outside the capitalist formation and the market as its main attribute.

              Capitalism is indestructible and eternal, for man’s eternal desire to live better and private initiative as a means to achieve a better life are eternal. Rather, all state systems striving to oppress private initiative and private property are ridiculous, and the Chinese version is no exception.

                  Even so, but we, as adults, understand that capitalism will obviously not perish in our millennium ... If it perishes at all. But socialism has remained as a vestige only in the wildest and most backward countries like Cuba, where refrigerators are transferred as a family heirloom, and the young and most promising are torn into the hated USA and in their desire are not afraid to trust even the illegal movement of the balseros who cross the strait into rafts Florida ..

                    socialism remained as a vestige
                    Let me disagree with you? Present-day socialism acts as a counterbalance to "animalistic face capitalism," just as capitalism opposes "general leveling." I don’t know where they are balanced, most likely such a balance will always be mobile and dynamic within some borders, but it is in it, in balance, as it seems to me that the key to a healthy society lies.
                    Naturally, the question arises about the criteria for this equilibrium, but to consider this issue it is necessary to turn to other steppes.

                      An unaccounted moment: capitalism with an animal face is now only in post-socialist countries. And equilibrium ... What kind of equilibrium can you think of when the most ardent desire among the inhabitants of the current socialist countries is to break through to the benefits of capitalism? All the demagogy about building a new type of society to the citizens there, and even the darkest fanatics do not believe in communism. And no wonder, because in some places in the socialist countries people primarily think about banal physiological survival. As I said, formations are not created by government regulations. They are the result of an extremely long development of social relations. I suppose you already know that Switzerland, for example, or the Scandinavian countries, without any big words, came much closer to communism than the most vociferous socialist countries. Because for many centuries they brought up responsible workers and zealous owners. and so succeeded in this. that when in Switzerland they wanted to introduce basic unconditional income, the last step towards communism, then citizens in a referendum voted against. Just imagine - the nation of bankers voluntarily refused very generous money! It is these people who are the optimal builders of communism. They do not need material wealth - they already have them. In the Soviet experience, they acted differently: they simply robbed people of all the good accumulated under tsarism by bandit methods, gave them a ration and said, be content with it and rejoice that you are alive at all. All of Russia became a Kremlin colony, just like any Zambia was a British colony. And the closest example is the Belgian Congo, the king’s personal colony.

    And in my opinion, the whole point is in Chinese cheapness: the Americans were seduced by the cheapness of DJI and let's buy, and the protein product is controversial: won or lost.
    Competitors (Americans, Europeans and the same Chinese) noticed some flaws at DJI and let's shout.
    It is clear that DJI will be disappointed, and you like to lose profits?

And that’s not all. And the fact that so far there is little export is good. And since there is a conversion program that implies for the defense industry the release of 50% to 50% of military and civilian products, much more will appear.
