I didn’t post it for an audience in China Geof. I doubt they’ll ever see it In fact, they wouldn’t be allowed see it
I’m not sure if the pandemic is the only mess China may or may not have caused so far, but their regime has the potential to cause a lot of trouble. For example, forcing the WHO (and and as many others as they can intimidate) not to recognise Taiwan is pretty bad. Now they’re building up their military and buying increased influence in the M/E and Africa.
Their monitoring and suppression of their own people, Their “re-education” camps, their suspected stealthy genocide of the Uighurs. All not good.
I don’t think China is a benign force Geof and I don’t think it’s values are compatible with our Western values. Nevertheless, our appetite for cheap iPhones etc. has caused us to nurture a potential Frankenstein. (I’m not sure the US or UK are compatible with our Western values either, but that a whole different story).
I need a nap after that rant
