China is the country of Confucius. The Chinese are a morally serious race. Its cross-breeding with socialism gives it a double dose of earnestness. To Western communicators, China is the "Land of the dull, and home of the literal" in Gore Vidal's words.
Determined to go to any lengths to contain China, America is holding a stack of anti-China cards: the Hong Kong card, Xinjiang card, Tibet card, Taiwan card, trade care, technology card, Covid-card, student visa card, alliance card and the international bodies card. America has gone completely card-crazy in its China encirclement game.
In its Watergate heyday, reporters were worth their weight in gold by landing big scoops. These days, they pander to press barons and their base, catering to extremism, nativism and ignoble populist instincts. Reporters just write their biases, and stop doing what journalists do best-- ferret out the truth, however inconvenient.
Insecure nations seek alliances just like impotent men who seek relief from Viagra. By joining three US alliances against China, Morrison has become a habitual Viagra user to puff up his manhood. He is counting on nuclear submarines, all nine phallic symbols, to manage his erectile dysfunction.
Meng Wenzhou, the stricken Huawei CFO, is free to go home. Free at last! Finally, the 1000-day nightmare is over. Canada can exhale. China can exhale, and the world can exhale. The Trump curse has been broken.
China has no stomach nor any use for biological weapons. It was a victim of Japanese germ warfare during the Second World War. All it wants is to be the world's best-governed country, boasting breathtaking infrastructure, technology that has improved livelihood, and lifting 800 million out of poverty. The West has never given China any credit for the biggest achievements in human history. Its multiple good deeds have been totally discounted by its communist label.
Canada is in the thick of another election. This time, more than the choice of leaders is at stake; it is a decision over what kind of country Canada wants to be. This election is about the soul of Canada.
Hong Kong is a first-world city run by third-world bumbling idiots, with high pay but a low ability worthy of a banana republic. Under them, "One Country, Two Systems" has become a laughingstock. Our housing unaffordability is through the roof, and so is our misery index. Tiny Macau looks down on us. Singapore points to us as an object lesson in how not to govern.
Enlightened government is robbing the rich to pay the poor. Here, unlike the mainland, it is the reverse. While SDU owners have been laughing all the way to the bank, the poor are crying in their soup and praying for crumbs from the government's table.
It's time the SAR government grew some teeth in its Accountability System and hold any official to account. A mandarin, whether in housing or healthcare, who lets problems fester is a disservice to Hong Kong and dishonors "one country, two systems".
