    No. The only way to deal with bad ideas is to give them a full airing and let people come to the conclusion on their own that they're bad ideas.

    Spying is illegal. If spying is going on the spies should be arrested. Has anyone associated with the organization in the United Stated been arrested for spying?

    They have been accused and have been investigated by multiple agencies in both the U.S. and Canada. They steal industry secrets form our companies and the U.S. loses billions maybe trillions to theft.

    I'm sure China steals from us but in this case if these people gave been investigated multiple times by both the US and Canada and there haven't been wholesale arrests of their members you don't have much basis for your statement that they steal billions from us and should be thrown out.
