I lived in the People’s Republic of China for about 10 years, but, recently, I finally got tired of it and left. Regarding China, the country has certainly improved the material conditions of the masses in recent decades (mostly by theft), but it is still a very hierarchical, oppressive nation. I lived through some of the continuing lockdowns, and they are indeed frustrating, irritating, useless, and despotic. I couldn’t get into a hospital once unless I proved I didn’t have the Wuhan virus, that is, unless I could prove I wasn’t sick. A hospital, mind you. Even the cowered Chinese are getting tired of this.
