That's a short-sighted view. Asean has only got itself to blame, not China, for not paying greater attention to the national-security interests of mainland Southeast Asian states.

The cumulative total, if you ask me, is frankly quite meaningless now. The more useful...

It's an American thing.

Anything and everything seems to get politicised in the US these days. I can only hope that this uniquely American trend doesn't spread, but I think it's a lost cause.

I'm with Frontier on this one.

It's not about dehumanising labour. It's about recognising and accepting market logic for what it is.
