I would like to point out a slight flaw in your statements - not all two strokes are made in China, to be had for the least money possible.
Once you consider the plethora of high quality two strokes made by reputable companies, that are no more or less a "kit" than your average four stroke - that if you consider price vs price - your arguments are inherently flawed by only considering the very cheapest of two strokes.
You get what you pay for - can't blame something for being "cheap" if that's all you were willing to spend
