Right now we are facing the biggest challenge that America has faced ever in this century. It equals the Vietnam War and Korean War. It will slowly rise up to the World War II level of challenge by the sheer numbers of casualties. American casualties was 418,000 people. If the U.S. government figure for potential fatalities of Covid 19 are true, it will be somewhere close to over 100,000 casualties. The numbers are staggering. However, the death rate is extremely high, and the fear that generated across this proud nation is crippling our soul and economy.
Now is the time to reflect and be courageous. The challenges that we are facing is as follows. We need to be kind to each other. We need to volunteer more. We need to rebuild the stocks in America. We need to get back to work to build up the essential and non essential industry and stop giving the labors to other third world countries to prop up the communism and fund the fundamentalism which will come back and bite us in the long run. Look how China and Pakistan are treating the U.S.A. They are calling us an enemy when we fed them the technology to build our iPhones, IBM and Lithium Ion batteries and gave them all of the technological knowledge. We don’t make anything close to what we use and need in time of crisis. Do not wait until the crisis gets us.
What we have been doing is to rely on the industrial hunger and poverty of Chinese people to make money but give away all of the essential labor intensive works such as textile industry, heavy metal industry, automotive parts industry, high tech industry, computer industry, printing industry, shipping industry, and food industry. Our imports from China amounts to almost everything that we use. Even the most mundane things as N95 masks are not manufactured here. Almost all of the employment in the U.S.A. are useless service sectors. Banking, fast food, delivery, hotel management, house cleaning, dog sitting, professional students, government workers, nursing home attendants, toll booth operators, Uber and Lyft drivers, Census workers, etc, etc. The majority of the workforce in the U.S.A. had deviated from the manufacturing and solid factory workers to service industry. Now we are paying the price. The experts in key industries and the skilled workers are long gone and what we have left are mostly service industry people who are used to easy 8 hours of work leaving no useful products other than lip service and computer trails. We are cyber trash collectors and over consumers. What we are and become are the shadows of the former industrial giants.
We remember fondly people like Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Wrights’ Brothers as the iconic heroes but we never wanted to follow their footsteps of hard work and repeated attempts to succeed. We became complacent and generally useless. Now with Covid-19 litmus test, we are finding out that from the top dogs down to the very bottom of the society, we became useless, overweight whiners.
Our challenge are now up front of our face. We must face the music or we will die like Roman Empire and Mongols. We will face the requiem of death sooner than later. We must mobilize our young and old to start volunteering to promote industrialization, bring back the manufacturing jobs, make essential products at home. Do not give money to corporations to subsidize the other countries and get a tax break for moving their manufacturing to China, India, Malaysia, Pakistan, Cambodia and Vietnam. We must stand firm and start building the national network of Electrical Bullet train system. We know now that Airline industries are fragile. Our polluting aging jet planes are and shall be grounded. The jet fuel consumption and air quality are poor. The danger imposed by poorly trained pilots and aging airplanes and lack of interest from the public to fly in a cattle cart in the air will create demise. The cruise ship industry will die. Our aging train tracks and old fossil fuel consuming train system should be abolished. We need electrified bullet train system for national mobilization. This means construction of massive scale. Almost all youths who have no real job should be trained to build the national net work of bullet train and electrical grid system with renewable energy source. We must use all of the solar power and wind energy. We should use the maximal power from the sun to power our national bullet train system and teach Canada and Mexico to use the same system and eventually connect the Central America, South America and Alaska and Canada to be on the same system so that we can travel to Argentina with one ticket.
We should learn from Japan Railroad system so that we can have private entity work closely with the government’s foresight and planning commission to create a network of flawless bullet train system with exact standard to minimize any derailment, unnecessary train collisions and cross traffic crossings and connect all major and minor cities with bullet train system. The cost will be phenomenal but the payout will be miraculous. We should start it today and not wait for tomorrow. We need to get off of the concrete hell and perpetual money sucking and money pit highway system and polluting airline system. We should embrace our challenges and renew our pride as a nation and become the international leader and stop the financial support to communist and Jihadist.
