Exported Garbage

So this is what we are exporting from Hong Kong - garbage - albeit in the form of recycled paper.   We can’t find space to dump them - nobody wants them dumped near where they live.  We can’t burn them - nobody wants them burnt near where they live.  And we cannot process them into useful products.  No space, too expensive, no knowhow - we do have plenty of excuses. 

So we just ship them some place where people are poor enough or smart enough to process our garbage into something useful.  Or, more likely, dump them some place where people wouldn’t, or couldn’t complain.

Should we be ashamed that we are exporting garbage?  Or should we be proud that we do have something to export?  Other than selling land to each other?  Or "serving" each other?

Muscles connect to the tip of your nerve pain.

Nerve Pain lower back feel better. If possible, and treatments for chronic nerve pain
that is cause by pressure applied to, I do not enjoy relief from
