if the argument is that the usa rejects chinese applications, shouldn’t we be looking at the number of granted visas compared to total application ?
visas per capita doesn’t really reveal whether the usa is rejecting chinese more than they reject bangladeshis or swedes
Yes and no. Lots of crap, for sure. Also good stuff, if you take the time to look for it, though anything imported is more expensive, and fakes are sometimes hard to spot. Even bottled water turns out to be fake sometimes.
the atmosphere is polluted,
if you teach they will send CCP members to attend your classes or watch you,
In schools every class has a (human) monitor. These days they’re likely to be watching by camera as well, I suppose. Actually sending someone in person just to watch the class, that also happens, but if it happens every single time then you’re probably teaching something terribly interesting (either politically sensitive or just interesting enough that the person wants free tuition, or if it’s a fellow teacher then free teaching tips).
the internet is down unless you use VPN and they can bring that down too.
Things become inaccessible seemingly at random, even email. Depending on what your needs are, it may be a slight nuisance or a major problem.
The Chinese get upset at the slightest possible insult yet the feel free to insult America non-stop. Some individual people are nice, the very top .001% who want to leave, the rest are brainwashed robots.
It’s easy to attract boring people. The interesting ones don’t run up to you and say hi I’m an interesting person and no more brainwashed than you are. You usually need to make an effort.
And there are many in the middle class who dream of emigrating.
You’re better off in Kazakhstan, literally, I go there as well to teach.
