Chinese Antiques, China Today - Dragon Breathe In Our Lungs

Apr 18, 2008
Chinese antiques history through to now has a fire breathing dragon as the centerpiece of the parade, weaving, bobbing, emitting noise, and most of all fire and smoke. And so it is today, although the dragon breathe is spewing out those smoke stacks we see now on television, as we see the streets of Beijing, and the overwhelming volume of foul CO2 coal emissions, with no filters, pushing into the skies of China, and drifting east. And now these cancer causing particles are reaching and settling onto the leaves of the trees in the forests, and into the lungs of western Americans. It is now past time to turn off the smoke machines,or at least put the newest filters on. Huge diapers, if you wish, now exists to enable China to stop breathing dragon death into our lungs. Wrong, Wong. Civilize up!

Is there anything you and I can do in this global issue? Yes, there is. And if we think it through together enough, and look at recent history, there is a way, down at our level, while the powers talk. We see it in our huge shopping baskets every time we shop at one of the huge discount stores, and the line ups of people with their huge buggies laden with stuff made in China that they cannot afford, do not need, but home it comes, is it not an impressive imitation of some real thing? Yes, it is, I have some too.

Recall, that is how Japan got rich, selling us cheap goods. They graduated upwards and bought up many of our treasures with the funds. Can you see this connection? If we stop buying the new junk we do not need, one factory might shut down and stop spewing, at any rate those fake new pieces will soon be broken or worthless. So strike back, before their own heirlooms become as valued to them as the cash from us is to them, we would invest far wiser, just ahead of the curve, in Chinese antiques now, while they are busy with their cell phones and new jobs and off with the old.

The new towers are for them to experience and enjoy, let them. But check out how reasonably priced Chinese antiques treasures still are. Now imagine ten years from now, when the newer middle class, now living more like in Tokyo than in present hellish smoke filled China, they will much more value their Chinese antiques. Which are sitting on your mantle now; quite a tidy investment. So while you see your neighbor haul out broken pieces of one of those fakes, or has them lined up a garage sale, which nobody wants because everyone has.

But not your Ming vase, or your Chinese antiques artifact intact, from a time long ago, in a civilization far away, from another day. Increasing, in great value, day after day. China is the rising power and any investment in it's glorious past is better by far than the lead lined fakes of today.
