Republican Rep. Chip Roy uses hearing on anti-Asian discrimination to 'glorify lynching' and criticize China
"A pre scheduled hearing today, focusing on hate crimes across our country, But of course, in light of the shootings in Atlanta. Those attacks against Asian Americans became front and center during the hearing, Republican Congressman Schiff Roy of Texas, arguing that all Americans deserve protection, and during his remarks, he invoked a Texas saying that critics claim celebrates the idea of lynching. Here's what he said. Going on. Appreciate are gathering here today. It's obviously a new important subject matter. Um, and to be clear all Americans deserve protection and to live in a free and secure society with the fundamental nature of what we expect out of government, right. Secure the blessings of liberty, as we say in the Constitution, United States, um The victims of race based violence, and their families deserve justice. And that's the case what we're talking about here with the tragedy what we just saw her and Atlanta, Georgia. I would also suggest that the victims of cartels moving illegal aliens deserve justice, the American citizens in South Texas. They're getting absolutely decimated by what's happening. Our southern border deserve justice. The victims of Riding a looting in the streets last week. Businesses closed Burn lime started last summer. Deserve justice Way believe in justice, right? There's an old saying in Texas about, you know, find the all the roof in Texas and get a taller tree. You know, we take justice very seriously, and we ought to do that round up the bad guys. That's what we believe. Um, my concern about this hearing is that it seems to want to venture into the policing of rhetoric in a free society free speech, um and away from the rule of law and taking out bad guys. And as a former federal prosecutor, I'm kind of predisposing wired to want to go take out bad guys. And that's bad guys of all colors as bad guys of all persuasions. That's bad guys targeting people for all different reasons, and I think we need t be mindful of that. And so now we're talking about whether talking about China Chai calms the Chinese Communist Party. Whatever phrasing we want to use and it some people are saying, Hey, we think those guys they're the bad guys, for whatever reason. Let me just say clearly, I do. I think the Chinese Communist Party running the country China. I think they're the bad guys, and I think that they're harming people. And I think they are engaging in modern day slavery. And I think that what they're doing the wingers and I think that what they're doing targeting our country and I think that what they're doing to undermine our national security and what they're doing to steal our intellectual property and what they're doing to build up their military and rattle throughout. Specific. I think it's patently evil deserving of condemnation, and I think that what they did to hide the reality of this virus is equally deserving of condemnation, and there's hardly any getting around that that in fact happened. The comments of Congressman Chip Roy of Texas that today's House Judiciary Committee hearing Democrats on that committee quick to criticize the Republican lawmaker, representative Grace Manning of New York, who was of Taiwanese descent, calling out her calling for his words and his support of former President Donald Trump in the last year.

China says manufacturing 'greatness' still 30 years away

Yeah this is extraordinary. So a third of the world's goods on manufactured in china it's been the great manufacturing success story. It's been astonishing how quickly it's happened. Particularly since china's entry into the world trade organization which has about fifteen years ago. If i remember correctly but what is extraordinary as you said it The people's congress this vast vast meeting where all the sena powerful players in the communist party get together. How i wanted the communist party Get together and plan the future. And and and one of the top government advises made this warning. And i think this is on the back of the rift with trump the trade wars and particularly very important chinese companies being blocked from accessing. Us technology such as walkway buying critical components. And what he's pointing out is yes. We may be really good at making clothes or making low tech. But we and we all getting better at making high-tech cars and phones but what we're not is the make very good at making the really really high tech products that go into those phones. So semiconductors so artificial intelligence and what he's saying is core technologies are in the hands of others and this is for some time. We've known that then there may well be sort of two competing global technology systems. And this really sounds like this is going to develop even further. The plan from the chinese government from beijing is that they want to control their own access technology because they do not want to be dependent on america and political interference such as we saw from trump in the last five

China State Media Says Biden's Early Policy 'Smacks of Trumpism'
"Campaign Republicans sought to portray Joe Biden is likely to be soft on China, but an editorial in Chinese state media this past week Says the Biden administration policy toward Beijing Quote smacks of Trumpism Bloomberg Economics reporter Shawn Donnan has been tracking trade policy. He joins me now for some insight into what to expect, Shawn. It is always a pleasure. Thanks so much for joining me. Thanks so much for having me. Okay, let's start on Capitol Hill. Lawmakers considering Biden administration nominees, including Katherine Tie By those pick for U. S Trade representative. You've been following this hearing. What is your takeaway Ben from her appearance before lawmakers. It's really interesting. What we're seeing from the Biden administration is a real change in tone around trade. At the very least, we're still not Getting a whole lot of specificity in terms of what sorts of policies they're going to do. What Tangible steps they're going to take when it comes to dealing with China and other trade problems that they threw US faces But way heard from Katherine Tie this week is a real effort to portrayed administration. That wants the focus on getting rid of the chaos and trade policy that some people, really, especially in the business community, really agonized about what kids Trump administration and moving towards something more delivered is more process driven. Uh, probably smarter is their their their idea. Now she had made a pretty strong case for China to live up to the trade agreement. It has already eat with then President Trump. Where's that now? Yeah. So we're in this really interesting situation. Where President Trump if you remember in January of 2020 find this deal with the Chinese. He called the phase one deal in which the Chinese committed to, uh, to step up their purchases of American products. Everything from farm Exports to airplanes and other manufacturer kids on go also to make some changes and how they enforced intellectual property rules. And so on. And then, of course, we got the pandemic and everything kind of went askew. Um, but one of the big questions surrounding the Biden administration coming in is are they gonna make, you know? Are they gonna Look at that deal and use that as the basis of the economic relationship with China and the way that the Trump administration with them. Are they gonna seek to make China live up to that deal, and it's purchased commitments and other things like opening up its market financial services companies out of the U. S also You know the type provisions? Well, what we heard from Katherine tie this week. Is that well, that's the deal that we have with China, and that's the deal that we're gonna be. We're gonna be asking them tow live up to you. So that's the first step. We know that they're gonna Um, they're gonna enforce that deal. That's what Katherine pies signaling. But then there are all these questions about what comes back. Of course, Phase One implies that there's a phase two. And right now, this huge questions about whether we ever see of face to agreement, and that's gonna be down to what the Biden administration chooses to do it face to agreement would really get into some of the structural issues. In the relationship and the ways that China competes unfairly, according to American businesses, And those are things like the subsidies that the Chinese Communist Party gives to, Uh both state and private companies and united China in the form of cheap electricity. Cheap loans on Shawn So you know, we're getting a little bit of a hint, but a lot of questions still left Now, a lot of this and you touched on this briefly. I want to dig a little bit deeper. These agreements are often about enforcement, not just words. But how they're going to have some teeth now, What are you expecting from the Biden administration when it comes to trade with China and enforcing those deals? Yeah. So one of the features that Bob Lighthizer of the President Trump's U. S trade representative was very proud of in the China agreement was an enforcement mechanism that there was a way for the US to, uh hold China accountable and impose tariffs and another punitive measures. If China didn't live up to the deal, we don't yet know what the Biden administration is going to do. We haven't yet had that situation. Where, Um, we're looking at an enforcement case. But that's ah, huge question that we also know that the Biden administration may choose to take another route in terms of enforcing a deal like this or taking on China, another in other issues. Trafford Ty used to be the chief China enforcement officer at the U. S Trade representative. Office. She's the one she was the lawyer who was literally arguing before the World Trade Organization cases on behalf of the US against China. One thing she said this week is that By administration expect to engage and take a leadership role at the World Trade Organization again. And so that means that the administration made may choose to go there rather than the bilateral route, which kind of took the U. S and China outside of the existing global trade rules.
The next of 1,000 cuts: Hong Kong activists on trial
"Rock. It's a scene. That's becoming ole too familiar in hong kong this week more pro. Democracy activists are on trial before appearing in court. One of the accused lee. Cheuk yan said hong kong's rule of law is deteriorating because he became a in some political him eight other profile figures have been charged with organizing and participating in an unauthorized. The charges stemmed not from hong kong's draconian new national security law but from the protests prior to its introduction in june twenty nine thousand nine millions of hong kongers began taking to the streets. They were opposing and extradition bill but they saw as a grave threat to the territory's delegate independence from the mainland government over months. The demonstrations escalated vandalism and violence were met with tear gas and rubber bullets. This week's training focuses on one particular protest so on august. Eighteen two thousand and nineteen mole than one million. People gathered to protest despite very heavy rain that day. Su lin wong is a china correspondent for the economist and is based in hong kong so the police had granted permission for people to protest in victoria park but they weren't granted permission to march on the streets but because there was so many people showed up inevitably people flowed out but the eight hundred august protests. Actually marks the first tig free weekend in a month so really was extremely peaceful. Compared to many of the protests that had come before it and so if that days protests remained peaceful wire or activists on trial for for being a part of it. They're nine high profile activists who on trial charged with organizing and participating in unauthorized and so they faced penalties of up to five years in jail. It's important to know that they haven't been charged under the national security law which was introduced after up. These protests occurred so the prosecution is accusing these group of defying police. Instructions encouraging crowds to watch and causing traffic disruptions. While the defense doesn't contest the facts that helped to organize and participate in the peaceful assembly. What they're arguing is that. The charges violate a basic right to assembly guaranteed under hong kong law and they are challenging the constitutionality of the polices ability to ban assemblies especially when the protests were directed at the police themselves. And you say that all the defendants are are high profile. Parts of hong kong's democracy movement. Yes so interestingly. This particular case is focused on an older generation of pro-democracy activists in hong kong who are generally considered to be moderate and who believe in trying to change the system from within by for example running for parliament in contrast to a younger generation of protesters who we saw take to the streets in two thousand nine hundred eighteen. So the fact that it's it's this group of older per democracy campaigners indicates the dominant is trying to crush the democracy movement as a whole as opposed to going after particular protesters who a particularly violent the two most high profile defendants in this case. Are martin land. Jimmy lai so muslim is considered the father of the democracy movement in hong kong. He's now eighty two years old. The other high profile figure is jimmy. Lai who is a media tycoon and runs a pro-democracy tabloid in hong kong and his despised by the chinese communist party. And so how do you think this trial will go so two of the nine have pleaded guilty to the charges and the remaining seven have pleaded not guilty to the sentence for the to pleaded. Guilty is expected next month and then the trial for the seven. He pleaded not guilty. Expected to last two weeks and so courts in hong kong still have a relatively high degree of autonomy and as a high standard of evidence it's expected in cases so people hoping that the courts will will still remain as independent as they were known to be prior to the protests as you say targeting these fathers and mothers of democracy in hong kong is quite telling so i think the outlook for democracy in hong kong is extremely grim and while some supporters did rally outside the court on tuesday since the national security law was introduced me last day. Her beam very few protests harshly because of covid restrictions but also because there has been a real layer of fear that is settled across the city. People have been arrested for holding up blank posters and slogans that we heard all the time on the streets in two thousand and nineteen have now being labeled seditious

But i think that part of what you've done here which is so interesting is to bring forward a handful of people who each represent different pathways through german jewish history and this really illuminates a lot of important issues. Do you maybe want to explain briefly about these different trajectories About these different figures in the show family and what they represent in the eighteen ninety s arthur bitty show-me who are the owners of a print shop berlin had four sons reinhold arish varner and gerhard litter known gershom and in time they viewed the travails of german society and experience the ambiguities of not the difficulties of german jewelry and they chose for different political paths. Brian whole the oldest was a national liberal or right liberal. Eric was a liberal democrat or a left liberal van was a social democrat and later became a communist in gershom of course was zionist so in this one family among these four brothers we see four political paths taken by german jewry in the first decades of the twentieth century raven. These weren't the only pads but they were by far the most common covering most of the political spectrum verner began his career as a socialist but he joined the communist party at the time of the The merger of the independent social democratic party but the communist party and he quickly rose to become the second most powerful member of the german communist party. He was a personal rival of of stalin and the stalinist clique in german communism in the mid nineteen twenty s when stalinist is attempting to take over the other communist parties in the commoner
China bans BBC World News from broadcasting
"And other charges. This is NPR. The Chinese government is banning the BBC from airing its world news program in China and as NPR's John Rule, which reports the move comes just days after a decision by Britain's communications regulator to strip a Chinese state TV channel of its broadcast license. China's radio and TV regulator says the BBC violated requirements that news be truthful and fair and that it harmed China's national interests and undermined national unity. The BBC came under fire in China for report this month on conditions in reeducation camps for ethnic wingers in the Xinjiang region. The report cited former detainees describing systemic rape and sexual abuse of women in the facilities. China's Foreign Ministry says the report has no factual basis. But there may be more to China's decision to ban the BBC World News Last week, The British government said it was pulling the license for C G. T. N. China's state run global television network. It says it did so because China's Communist Party oversees the network's
TikTok Sale Is Shelved
"Last year. Tiktok was a hot topic. The trump administration had threatened to ban the popular video app owned by china bytedance. If the company didn't divest its us operations to an american company after a lot of twists and turns the trump administration signed off on a preliminary deal between tiktok or and walmart and over the past few months. Regulators have been working with the companies to hammer out the final details. But now there's a new wrinkle. We report that the biden administration is shelving the deal indefinitely pending a broader review of potential security risks. John mackinnon covers tech policy for the wall street journal and he joins me now to explain. Hi john thanks for being here. Glad to be here. So john catch us up. This deal was reached in the fall. What's happened since then. The short answer is not a lot has been happening. The deal that was announced in september kind of language since then for a couple of reasons one is that president trump himself kind of lost interest in it as the election. Season heated up. And then you know the post-election drama kind of consumed him then the biden administration took over and they have decided to do kind of a big picture. Broadscale review of all of the china tech issues that the trump administration kind of left hanging and that's causing them to want to rethink basically the entire tiktok arrangement. So what can you tell us about some of the reasoning behind that. And what does it say about the administration's priorities concerning tech policy. Especially when it comes to well. I think that there's recognition on both sides of the political spectrum that the issues being raised by chinese tech platforms and chinese technology in general are real concerns and are substantial concerns and the trump administration to its credit was kind early to recognize some of these concerns but their approach. I think the biden people feel was a little bit scattershot. That's not a word that they use. But i think that that's really how it looks to them. And so they're trying to find a way to address all of these data security national security issues in a rational way that kind of can be used across the board in different contexts and with different chinese tech companies. So they're they're trying to avoid the kind of individual targeting of companies that the trump administration was effectively. Doing how are tiktok and its owner bytedance responding to security concerns. You know bytedance has offered to do a lot of different things but so far. I think it's fair to say has not done everything that the us government would like the us. Government wants to find some way to make sure that american users data stays out of the purview of the chinese communist party of the chinese government and the folks who run bytedance assure everybody that they would never turn over american users data to the chinese government. But so far. I think it's fair to say. The american government is not convinced that that's right and they're really looking for some assurances that this chinese based company will not ever ballot to the wishes of the chinese government in turn over american users data and it's frankly tough nut to crack so that's what led the trump administration to try to concoct a deal that would effectively transfer ownership of the american operation to a majority. Us company but nothing has come of that so far now i think it's fair to say that the bytedance folks think that they have sufficient protections built into their system now to keep data out of the hands of the chinese government but us officials are not convinced that it's enough. What's the impact for oracle and walmart of shelving this deal even if only temporarily well i think there are different implications for those two companies. I think walmart went into this with the idea of developing a closer relationship with tiktok and building up its promotions and its brand through tiktok in i think that they have sort of reached enough understandings with the bytedance folks and tiktok on the marketing side. There was they've developed enough partnerships on the marketing side that they are basically happy even if they don't ever wind up with an ownership stake in the us operation oracle. I think is hoping to play a role in maybe hosting. The data may be securing the data that's developed by the us operation. I think that they would still like to own a chunk of this business. I think that they would like to have more of a presence in platforms in social media. But they'll be happy with what they get. If this deal does go forward. There are still a couple of legal loosens here to write. What would still need to be tied up will. There are a lot of cases that are going on but you know cases come and go As the needs arising go away. So i think that there are a lot of interesting issues being presented by these cases you know the extent to which the american president can exert this kind of control on foreign based tech platforms. That seemed to present a national security risks. I think that that's an issue that even congress probably will need to address further and there's some interest within the biden administration in trying to do that to try to get congress to do something. It may be that the next move is really in congress's court all right. That's wall street. Journal reporter john mackinnon. John thank you so much for joining me today. You're

It wasn't the fact that one of the best universities in China had changed. Its charter last month to emphasize loyalty to China's ruling communist party that raised eyebrows Shanghai's in his Fudan.

It's not meant to be transparent so the honest answer is I don't know and nobody does but obviously they they. They look look at each other. They talk with each other and I'm sure they are aware of each other's power under certain limits what a party has done has brought in a lot of the wouldn't have done before is bringing a lot of these merchants into the party system but people like Jack. Ma Know that without party approval cool nothing that they would do would happen nothing that they would like to do and if the party opposes it. It's not going to happen so they will be careful. They can make a lot of money to in all kinds of stuff. Don't get into politics don't do that and with Jingping. There is now a personality cult which again as described in in West sometimes it said that this is going back to kind of Maoist version of how the Party operates sometimes as you hinted. It's a much deeper and longer tradition in Chinese political and social life the imperial model which which how should we say it is this is it is it. I think go back for neither. I think the answer is that China politically is still searching for a new form of government that derives from its own traditions but also seen as highly modern inefficient and actually the democratic. One of the things that's happening today of course is that China claims to be as democratic or even more so than Western democracies McAfee's in our Western democracies haven't done very well. The last three decades the case against it's not very hard to make as you know but what they mean gene is that through various avenues including social media the leadership knows or thinks knows what is happening at the lowest possible level level so one of the I think the key element of the Chinese political tradition it is tradition is a direct connection between the top and the most bottom. mm-hmm individual there's Chinese phrase for this opening the avenues of dialogue something like that and I think one of the reasons that the culture has that was close so how did not know this kind of the Chinese arguments he hit China did not mouth did not know what was happening so that naive you that was ed in the nineteen at the age of the Internet that was going to explode these kinds of regimes in white clay now that does a case for saying that the age of the Internet is really good for these kinds of regimes because there is that long tradition for authoritarians wanting to know what's going on a now you can do it. You can hear what's being said at the bottom before it had to pastoral as filters and now now you just get that direct access. I mean that's a great example of this is the social credit system in China which is abhorrent to Westernise. I suppose it's completely violate any idea of privacy but the social system measures all kinds of things. It's like financial credit. There's money but also your behavior education better. You pay your taxes what you've done what if cross the street in the right way and all that has pulled together into some sort of credit score. Some people are not able to board trains because they see as dangerous and with social media. Yes I mean I think the Chinese central leadership is extremely concerned about what is actually but people are actually thinking and they tried to get a handle on that as much as they can so yes and what role does ideology still play if any in the Chinese Communist Party because you can do here and it's very hard to understand it from a Western perspective that the leadership still talks about marks a useful source of knowledge.

"A what point does it make sense to cool it. A Maoist parties marries emerges as a separate ideologists in from the West but is it fairly early on clearly that this party is actually being driven by the personality and the views of one individual not until the second Second World War without now the Communist Party would not I'm sure have succeeded but he made a couple of really key interventions in the first one was in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven when the white terror almost decimated in the cities of Communist parties are supposed to thrive in cities take power our through some sort of Leninist coup in central capital Mouth Says No. This is not what it's going to happen. We have to go into the countryside and mobilize and of course marks were so against all that that is a huge change and manos great things of course he is able to draw enormous power out out of a very poor and backward countryside and that itself is of course in amazing stories was one intervention into the countryside the other key intervention and I think that's very interesting. One and people haven't talked about that much is his organization. Violence is a great technician of violence. If a couple of ways he's he's the one power come to us with barrel of the gun but it's the party that must control the gun until he built a structure and this has been been driven after the Long March into this completely hospitable terrain famine nothing grows at horrible and he creates this machine we have party party but you also have strong armed forces and they create these base areas behind Japanese lines because he doesn't have conflict with Japanese definitely not because he's going to lose because there aren't good doesn't want any conflict with the nationalist. There's still a major force because they would lose again and so so he builds his base areas and it's very interesting when he is thinking about how to do this and we have to mention the sort of defeated again and again again the China the communist capital in the northwest and Mao isn't what do I do. How do I create power out of nothing. I don't have if this industrial base. I don't have a state. What do I do and he reads everything under the Sun. He's a smart reader right one of the books that has most implement miss. Clouds of it people always talk about S- Windsor and so on but Mao admitted at somebody no I haven't read is not very good at from it is closing its translate clausewitz thousands and he learns a lot from them. Including about the importance of politics organizing violence going for absolute violence but having rationality to party control the violence that is at the same time and again it sort of incredible things he does. They're surrounded by the nationalist surrounded by the Japanese internees the trying to build these bays areas. How do you make political organization that is highly disciplined in control all this they have radios but other than that there isn't very much so he has purification drive the yen on rectification campaign and he really puts his stamp. It puts his his will on the Party and I I do you follow me or die so during the Mao years obviously covers a lot but were there rival sources of power in Chinese in his society were there bits of the control of these sorts of exercise that he thought actually posed a real danger to him if he didn't confront them yes this one of the big factional splits at the time and he is doing this. There's a group of people within the Communist Party one mean who derive power from their relationship with Moscow this style in so that's a really important source of power and Mao has to solve cleverly isolated people at the same time that he suggests that I am following Stalin so he's very good at that kind of international relationship to one source the other source of real power of course fighting Japanese one of the problems that mouth face that this time is that he cannot fight a Japanese yeah. He must suggest that he is fighting the Japanese so he has this united front but he doesn't want to be absorbed by the nationalist either so it's very carefully construct policy where what we will do is refined..

"Talking you could say the origin story of the Chinese Communist Party is just this incredible success story essentially more or less from nowhere within about twenty years to be governing a vast empire. How how did they do it. It is an incredible story. I think first of all many are you have a group of young kids students in the twenty s there were two other figures but there was not that relevant for very long time the meeting Shanghai from across China some have been embarrassed but I was coincidental and as you say thirty years later they run this vast country and then take it on and become make it into superpower so it is an amazing story. How did they do it. I think the first thing in communism of course this is history driving all this. The outcome is inevitable but that's clearly not the case. I think one of the problems for party now to admit is it. A lot of luck was involved a real great amount of Oh luck there could have been destroyed in the twenty. S indicate should at them in nineteen twenty seven. Do I tear that perch. There could have been destroyed. Loyd then in the nineteen thirties of melting setting up this this communist base in Junkie Social Beautiful country very poor nationalist again surround the nearly killed and gone along mart a huge defeat and to begin with troops of one hundred thousand people kids drawn out of the villages going along Mike hundred thousand troops by the end when you move into north China driven into this horrible horrible north China which is copied it was supposed to die. There's ten thousand people left and then in one thousand nine hundred eighty five suddenly have trump supposedly a one million. Let's say half of that would be real and then four years later in the civil war. They actually roll through this country so luck is important because we're not for the Japanese invasion day would have never gone anywhere and Mao in the nineteen one thousand nine hundred ninety s when he was welcoming Japanese visitors who want to trade with China because the Japanese believed that was important to them they kept apologizing for what they had done to China China and Mao as usual. Don't apologize without you guys. We would still be hills so it's fine and thank you very much and so he acknowledged that. I think that is a problem for leadership today. Who Keep saying again and again without a party in China would be nowhere we are the ones who will survive the the Chinese culture tiny civilization because you could say the other way to frame an origin story which is based in luck. Is We should have died so many times. The fact we didn't mean to actually destiny was on our side. There is a kind of destiny element to it the Long March and other things the closer you get obliteration not obliterated it means. You're always going to win right. That is absolutely absolutely true. They that's not the argument day. Make It is inevitable and we were always right. We make mistakes we corrected them and someone that's the kind of history create tell about themselves and was actually the first one to enforce that following of course Stalin who made the same kinds of arguments in the short course but there is something like the Tory party they are able to change leaders when it is really really necessary. I'm not suggesting to the Tory Party will actually survive this particular crisis in the same way that maybe one way to think about the problem that is useful in two years time the Chinese communist piracy. We'll have to commemorate at hundreds anniversary now. That's a big transition because it's the longest communist party in control and it's still going strong now. Why would that be special. What is the answer to that so I'm very curious to see how they will do that in two years time and I'm sure they're extremely nervous about this so we'll we'll get that but go back to the story that gets to the present..

"Have to be cleared by the communist party China and it's going to the military. The kind of involved in this kind of overseeing the space program. They have to be okay with this. So I mean you con- to start up a. Space dot up in China and expect to get anyway. I mean, you have to have context. The. Yeah, you go to play normal political game that you have to be connected. So. They've helped to access the technology and they would probably have had funding from Sastin, which is the countless government body, which oversees the space program. So I mean, will this would have to be. Very closely watched him. So it's like a privatized arm of the Chinese space program in some ways. I think that's the main thing that people have questions about is like not necessarily approvals or funding, but. Maybe the level of control that you know the Chinese government could impose upon company. I think a level of oversight of these. I mean, maybe not control. I mean, maybe not heavy hands, but for example, cast, I think that they have. I mean, the state owned by that, so much state controlled. I mean, they have freedom to work on these products. I mean, they have to be okayed by the communist party, but it seems that they're able to put money until these schemes like now, reusable space playing. Example, the law much nine on the next generation spacecraft to be shunned Joe's excessive. I mean, they're working on these even though the not explicitly approved by the government so that they do have some kind of scope to act by themselves. So, but at the same time, I mean, this would have to be some level kind of okay with the comes to China, which oversees everything job, right. And I guess there the point is if they're seeing budgetary problems in space, they're probably going to be okay with anything that kinda gets them out of that that problem territory, you know. And if they see launches viable spot to reduce costs, then give these people the freedom that they can have and. See what happens with. It's, it's a very curious transition period. I would say. For while I thought the China was kinda going to follow the the US route storyline from the sixties to now where went through this very government heavy phase and then it slowly transitioned out of that. And it feels based on what you're saying here with the twenty fourteen mindset shift. It feels like there may be fast forwarding that time line a bit realizing that they need to make that switch sooner. And now it's a matter of getting these couple of companies online. It's land space, link space, one space. They all have to have space as the second half of their name. Where else they're not allowed is what I'm getting. Is space space. It's it's. The other part of that is I assume that they kind of think that these companies would be able to capture some part of the commercial launch market internationally. I don't know if you have any sense of how I mean, obviously, you know, there's companies all of the world today that have launched stuff on Chinese rockets before radium satellites were launched on threes back in the day, and there's plenty of people that go over there to get launches given the current political landscape, how do you see the prospects for a company like land space, being able to land contracts out of US Europe, Russia?.

"Only two people won't you to invest in me. So I was rejected the one hundred sixty seven times, but the fact that at could even meet more than one country western was good. T dash. One of the things that really fascinates people from outside of China is the relationship between the communist putty and business. So how does that work in practice from a business perspective? The communist party is essentially the ultimate fraternity or old boys club, and it has its own unwritten bylaws and rituals. So joining the party and rising through its ranks or becoming friends with those that do means you're able to access patronage networks and that's key to attaining any kind of big corporate success in China in return the communist party ultimately retains broad control over even private sectors and the party despite being communist in the allergy is is not against business. It's just against any business that doesn't simultaneously fulfil the party's objectives while making money. I'm a party member and somewhile who strongly suppose socialists in the beginning, I had no government encouragement. It was my own idea. As soon as we began as a company, we had a party sell. Part party construction has always been very good for cooperated development. For example, our corporate culture, not everyone can be a party member, so they make full very good employees. Supervisory bodies and clans have more trusting our work. They won't work with us as thou employees their parents feel more secure that their cells and daughters are working for our company. So whether for will corporate culture, business development, the party has been good for us. We also have clear signs for those who are party members.
