Day 36/37/38/39/40/41/42: The Red Tide

As Americans on the left and right draw battle lines, enemy forces have entered our society. I’m not speaking if the radical Islamist threat but the Russians and Chinese.
Much has been made of Russian influence in the current Administration. I think we will learn the truth of Wikileaks soon and their Kremlin masters. Snowden sold himself to Putin before his leaks. The Cold War continues.
China however has gotten mostly a pass from the media. We have allowed ourselves to become addicted to their large market. If the American Century was based on the spread of our values then China is our high water mark. Since the opening of China by Nixon, China has not improved their human rights and American business has become more indifferent to their employees like the contractors they hire for their sweat shops.
Today as Hollywood is selling out to the Reds, I cannot but help to worry about the freedom of our media. As studios have sought the seats of Chinese auditoriums, they have grown blind to the offenses to please the censors. Now they are being bought by Chinese investors, I don’t doubt the trend will continue. “The Great Wall” is the beginning not of white washing as leftists who haven’t viewed the film claim but of the presentation of unquestioning Chinese might and values. Hollywood will be making the world less safe for democracy. This is dangerous, we cannot cede the freedoms of America for profit. We cannot support government crackdown on dissent. We will have less “La La Land”s and “Moonlight”s. 
We must not cede our souls for dollars.
-E.C. Fiori

Two Americans take the only radical position left in the country: centrists.
