World Superlatives

11/22/2021 11:49 PM

It seems every day you read about the latest and biggest and fastest in the world and it all appears to be coming from China. They claim the fastest railroad system, the longest bridges, largest dam, largest slewing crane, etc. Why is it that China is doing these things and the rest of the world is sitting by and watching? They (the Chinese) seem to want to be the best in everything. Is this a competition that we cannot win?

The problem with plural pronouns is that of adequate definition. That's why a pronoun is not a noun, which things are better defined.

When anyone tries to catch up to a competitor they often grab any earned accolades they can along the way.

I also recommend you change your periodicals to read.

Under the influence of Republicans and Christians, our country has become outrageously stupid. No wonder we are losing, as we deserve.

This is not to extol the Chinese. If we were somehow to get our act together, we could excel over them.

The U.S. wasn't able to compete against the propaganda of the Soviet Union either.
