Totalitarian Death Threat
February 28, 2020 § Leave a comment
Totalitarians “think” that “total control” is both “possible” and “desirable” when, in the real world, it is neither. Totalitarians can kill ya’ [midnight arrests and disappearances] and “get ya’ killed” by their theory. The totalitarian Han-dominated Chinese Communist Party thinks it “knows” and thinks it can “control”.
“Beijing knew what was going on all along and chose to keep the public and the world in the dark instead of deploying serious efforts to contain the disease when it could still be contained locally. Its responsibility for causing this mess to the Chinese people and the world is undeniable, though these days they are very aggressive in mobilizing its propaganda machine to control the narrative about it globally. ”
This attitude/approach may well work for poverty reduction; environmental protection; traffic control. Ordinary control matters. Not for epidemics.
