Coronavirus? Murder Hornets? What’s next from the Communist Giant? After months of COVID-19 running rampant throughout the world the issue all goes back to one country; China.
Was COVID-19 a natural occurring virus that originated in Wuhan, China? Or rather was it engineered and tested in a lab centered in Wuhan? The problem stems from whichever answer you choose to believe. The problem is fundamentally the Government of The People’s Republic of China (“PRC”).
Since 1949 the Chinese have been under rule by the PRC. The PRC has kept a tight knit control over its people for over 70 years and doesn’t seem to want to lift anymore restrictions anytime soon. When President Xi-Jinping came into control in November of 2012 he has continued China’s stance of complete control. Xi-Jinping even went so far as to ban the children’s character “Winnie the Pooh” over Memes on the internet that compared his looks to the character.
One way that the PRC has gotten away with abuse to its own citizens has been through the lack of transparency. China has lied to the world for years and has gotten away without much pressure from foreign nations. They are posed to yet again slip out of the worlds grip due to “political correctness.”
The lack of transparency has given the government even more control through manipulating wages, suppressing anti-government speech, and even forcing child slave labor. The atrocities that the PRC commits are unacceptable for the world we live in today.
I’m doubtful that we will get any transparency with the origins of the outbreak of COVID-19. The best we can hope for is that going forward the rest of the world will hold China more accountable for the atrocities they commit. We cannot let another problem like this ever happen again. It all starts with stopping the other atrocities they commit today.
