The Chinese are much more likely hire you than the yanks, so try to stay on good terms. Don’t get me wrong, they’re bastards. But they like to smile a bit and pretend to be good people. Yeah, the yanks do that too, but the yanks are more about convincing THEMSELVES that they’re good people. The Chinese are feral scavengers. The Chinese LIKE being feral scavengers, they just don’t like the baggage that comes with that kind of reputation.
Again, the Chinese hire contractors. The Chinese prefer a more nuanced posture than the yanks. The yanks ignore you ‘til you cross them, then they fuck your shit up. The Chinese are either your long-lost billionaire brother who wants to show you a good time, or they’re your ex-wife.
