The U.S., while verbally proclaiming support for “human rights”, is actively campaigning for a Covid policy that would kill 6.4 million Chinese people by the end of this year.
China in 2022 will face more negative global economic trends than in 2021. This will clearly require more domestic stimulus in China while making it necessary to avoid the errors of Trump/Biden administrations.
How China responded to the USSR’s collapse
An interview with Zhang Weiwei (Deng Xiaoping’s interpreter and now one of the most influential political analysts in China).
Approaching the third year of the global pandemic, life in China is “back to normal” for most of the 1.4 billion people. There are occasionally short-term, localised lockdowns in response to local outbreaks, but there is no active pandemic within China.
This is a monumental success of a system that values human lives over corporate profits.
The approach, which involves a partial lockdown or quarantine of neighborhoods where infections are identified and the tracing of contacts of those infected, has kept the major part of the country free from the virus.
As a result, residents in most parts of the country lead a normal life without worrying about being infected.
The USSR recorded giant world changing achievements, such as the defeat of Nazism, its role in destruction of colonial empires, education, literacy and many other areas. However, its post World War II economic policies led to the USSR’s collapse. It is China’s post 1978 economic policies that provide the positive economic model for socialists.
