How could the isolated post-pandemic China survive?


Both COVID-19 and political tensions will obstruct cross-border human traffic as well as civilian purchases in the coming, at least, two years. Realistically speaking, for example, Chinese tourists will be much less welcome in the retail streets of the ANZ, Canada, the US and western European countries. It is therefore definitely not a surprise to … Continue reading

Why the virus threatens the Chinese regime’s imperial dreams


If it acts, the Free World has the opportunity to condemn another communist dictatorship to Karl Marx’s dustbin of history and avoid a war with a totalitarian superpower circa 2035.

Why are countries breaking with the Chinese regime?


One would think that Beijing would see that unleashing a pandemic is no way to gain favor with the world. Lying about doing so doesn’t help, either; nor does blaming others for the outbreak.

China is under global attack from all sides. It’s not just the government, but a sizeable portion of the Chinese people who cooperate with that government. We don’t know how many in China are part of the problem or the solution. Reports from China remain silenced and Chinese culture is beaten down and overtly compliant … Continue reading

Just when we thought China couldn’t make itself more unpopular, China made itself more unpopular. Perhaps it was charity. Perhaps it was delusion. We don’t like thinking bad things about others, especially if we sacrificed our jobs and economies to have our stuff made more cheaply by them. Saying bad things about China was as … Continue reading

Can China recover faster and better after Coronavirus ?


The Plague of Athens (429-426 BC), probably an outbreak of smallpox or typhus after the arrival of a ship from Ethiopia, claimed between 75,000 to 100,000 lives in the city-state. Yet, Athens managed to survive after the Peloponnesian War (431-404 BC) against Sparta. After Socrates’ death in 399 BC, Plato (424-348 BC) laid down the … Continue reading

Caught in a superpower struggle: the inside story of the WHO’s response to coronavirus


When a pandemic strikes, the world’s leading experts convene – physically or virtually – in a hi-tech chamber in the basement of the Geneva headquarters of the World Health Organization.

France summons Chinese envoy after coronavirus ‘slur’


The French foreign office on Tuesday summoned the Chinese ambassador, Lu Shaye, to express its deep disapproval about Chinese diplomats’ claims that France had left its older citizens to die.

The global case against China is marching forward in force. Typically the West doesn’t care about human rights violations—they care, but never enough to do anything until it involves themselves. Two million Uyghurs missing in Xinjiang doesn’t matter to the West. But, if Americans and Europeans are afraid of catching a pneumonia-cold that most people … Continue reading

The pneumoniavirus is having a detrimental effect on China. While Xi Jinping kicks China’s economy into full swing, the rest of the world is on full alert.

Blame! Both general theories about where this virus originated fail to do two things: They don’t acquit anyone and they don’t tell us how to treat it. The theories no longer seem to matter since fear has taken over the world. Initially, we had a theory that the virus passed from wildlife to humans at … Continue reading

An overview of China’s economy and how coronavirus affected it


China has been the highest contributor to global economic growth for more than a decade.

China’s in trouble—deep trouble. America pauses with the same hush of silence that swept the country from the outskirts of Washington to New Orleans in 1812, gathering around the radio in 1941, or staring at the same TV images on repeat in 2001. While America pauses and reflects, China accuses, taunts, and threatens, as if … Continue reading

Coronavirus drives the U.S. and China deeper Into global power struggle


Many experts warn that an international health and economic crisis calls for more cooperation, not confrontation, between Washington and Beijing.

News around the world has blacked out. Everything is about this new virus that should be called the “pneumoniavirus”, also known as Wuhan’s 2019-nCoV, everything—the news, the politics, the economy, the maps, organ harvesting. But, that wasn’t the only Western bad news on China. Canada had a brilliant solution to the Huawei controversy: go public. … Continue reading
