Today I have had a delightful (by delightful I mean horrifying) political conversation with a British teenage girl! The subject was a potential US and China trade war, I stated that a trade war with China is much more useful to the people of America and maybe Britain than continued wars in the Middle East. I then also stated that China’s Foreign Minister warned that both sides would lose in a conflict between his country and the United States..
To this she answered “well they shouldn’t do it then.” I do not believe in war but I do believe that China is economically as strong as it is mainly due to exploitation of its people and the USA are by far China’s biggest customers. I said “if Donald Trump was to fight a war against that kind of exploitation which allows China to benefit from such cheap labour, I would support him.” It shouldn’t take bombs to move trade, America is the customer so it should have the right to choose.
Unlike the wars in the Middle East that her mind has been programed to accept as a war on terrorism, this upset her! To this she begins attacking my grammar, I will hold my hands up, I’m from Wolverhampton in the West Midlands, people from Wolverhampton or the West Midlands in general are not known for our posh accents and proper speaking. Think Ozzy Osborne, Frank Skinner, Noddy Holder or Jasper Carrott we sound daft (local dialect it means stupid!)
I explain that picking faults in peoples grammar is just something people do when they do not have a valid argument, to this she somehow manages to alter her face in to this ridiculous, I hate your guts look as if she is looking at a piece of shit!
I pick up a keyboard that just happened to be next to me at the time and smash her over her head, the keyboard broke in half so I proceed in kicking the shit out her, while screaming “fucking wake up, you over privileged spoiled bitch!”
I then snapped out of my daydream and politely explained that its alright for people like her, with her Smart phone, Nike Trainers and warm cozy house to be OK with exploitation and child labour, after all it benefits people like her.
These people are being exploited for businesses worrying about where their next meal is going to come from while you are being conditioned by businesses worrying about what you’re going to wear to the Prom and losing snapchat streaks, its a problem.
