That's assuming "world news" does not lie. People automatically believe everything bad happening in China "because it's China", that's already very dangerous. For example, do you instantly believe all the accusations MSM reported against the party / the candidates you support? No, you will think twice or call it fake news. But when it comes to China, everything negative must be true, regardless how ridiculous or against common sense it is, from concentration camps to slave labor solar panels or cotton in XJ.
My uncle runs a lab for nearly two decades and they use a lot of exchange PHD scholars from China, fewer and fewer seeks to stay after their exchange period, that says a lot about how much US is "a much better place". I'd say you make more money in the US, cars and gadgets are cheaper, houses are bigger, but China definitely has better food, infrastructure, transportation and security. You don't get your car window smashed, wheels stolen, shot, robbed, kidnapped in most decent countries other than the US, seeing a specialist is also much easier in China, even with a good HMO it still takes a ****ing month or two to see a specialist.
