It’s a lot easier for a unified people that doesn’t have to waste intellectual time and energy on becoming more diverse. In China half of their education system isn’t geared towards feel good degrees.

But many of the best Chines researchers are in the U.S. It is like when the U.S. Math team beat the Chinese Math Team; and the U.S. tea, was 100% Chinese-American

Might as well not spend it and be better off financially.
