western silence (or worse, praise) for china's government is shameful
Thank you for covering this. Silence from Democrats and human rights NGOs grows more deafening by the day. We all know who their real masters are: https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/how-to-control-your-souls-desire
I've been saying this since the 1990's when the West sent it's manufacturing jobs to China.
Idiotic empowerment and enrichment of regimes we should have nothing to do with. And what has it brought us . . . cheap shit to offset the collapse of western wages.
I think your concluding statement is the thought that has impacted me the most over the past year or two - that humans never learn. I come from a Jewish background, heard all my life "Never Again"... and then had my eyes opened by all the insanity happening recently and learned that it happens over and over and over again. We really do not learn. This gives me such a profound sadness, because it implies something about human nature that cannot be changed. Truly sad.
It's not just Klaus Schwab who wants to emulate China - Biden and many (most?) Dems in Congress want the same. They don't speak out because they believe in the mindset and methods. At the very least, these people in our government are owned by China, but we know they have a major dictatorial bent. Look at how many ways the Constitution was trampled all in the name of a virus.
Bingo. I'm Catholic. Bishops and priests have suffered in China for decades. No one, not the Church or "free countries" spoke out. Now we have a pope who approves of a fake church, "patriotic association," and spits on good bishops like Cardinal Zen.
When you don't oppose it, you become it. Post it on your iPhone.
China owns our rulers....
Western leaders stand by and say nothing because they want to exercise precisely those same powers over us. It’s not a question of “waking up” these leaders, or insisting that they “be brave.” Western leaders are precisely the same type of criminals.
Biden’s silence is easy to understand when we realize his administration is working exclusively for our shadow government and pushing the elitist agenda along- captured in part by Soros’s statement that China is the model for the world.
No families. What I mean is, this is a country that had a 1-child policy violently enforced since the early 80s ( and silently encourage for a couple decades before that).
Families are where people learn to be in society. No family makes it difficult to give a shit about other people. This is a country of a billion people who have not learned the natural way to give a shit about anybody but themselves.
That man standing with the sign "You know what I want to say" has no brothers. Possibly one or both of his parents are dead. If they are both dead, he is finally "free" to attempt to buck the system because he is alone and they cannot get his loved ones. He has nothing to lose.
The global police bastards that dragged him away also have no family. They have attached themselves to the CCP to find a "place". They do not give a shit about the people they beat. Why should they? They do not know God.
Gotta go sit, grand baby just arrived.
Not a word about the atrocity of locking people up for months. Not a word from any western country. A disgrace.
I don't think China's lost its mind at all. They can afford to lose millions of people and they're making the "bad dogs" come out and show themselves so they can be exterminated.
The West didn't give a damn when China broke that nice little gentleman's agreement about how they were gonna give that whisper of freedom to Hong Kong. Xi's tryout in the provinces and now the show's on Broadway.
Xi knows every Western govt. knows now the how and where of that troublesome virus and yet China is paying no cost for the initial escape and the very very bad advice on how to handle the pandemic. If that led to no penalty, no one's gonna rescue the Chinese people in China.
We're not even rescuing ourselves, so...
This regime is the one openly admired by scum like Trudeau. The world needs to collectively rise up and demolish these psychopaths.
"and the west sits silent. and at a certain point, that silence becomes complicity."
Seriously, at a certain point it becomes complicit? How about 70-80 years ago. The west pretty much installed mao and millions died. the west also supported the overthrow of the russian royals and poured money and material into russia in support of the bolshevik revolution.
of course we're silent - we are now just China West. a satrapy.
Literally from day 1 this was my position for this exact reason. No lockdowns. Digital ID passes will only serve to restrict us more and more and we must not comply.
It's all about the cash and doing business. We're supposed to fight a nuclear war over white Europeans but unspeakable horrors in China, shut-up, it's Black Friday and big screens are on sale!
