3. Republicans do not work with Communists - but they do it for Cash

Well said.

Big business saw China as a way to get around unionized labor (and those pesky first-world wages) by simply movingmost of our industrial capacity over there.

I believe Nixon himself admitted at the time this was his primary motivation for the overtures to Mao - rather than triangulating against the USSR, as Kissinger has always claimed (a reliable source if there ever was one).

That geopolitical consideration was there; but was no doubt secondary.
