Our dependence on Communist/Marxist countries for our manufacturing is a form of economic warfare, which has been conducted against us ever since Communism began.
the lockdowns created a whole new level of MLM (multi level marketing) where all the gals decided to stay home and make candles and soaps, and all kinds of different epoxy pours. And once you have those molds you can make anything you want a million times with a few simple ingredients. Lots of folks bought 3d printers too. Even if you don't feel like making anything right now, a lot of the shelf stable materials and ingredients are cheap to stock up on for later. Even if you don't want to sell it, you can trade it for eggs, seeds, etc. and help support your local folks. even extra screws and nails can help out a ton.
