It's a crisis of faith.

How can China, a communist, collectivist, one party state possibly do better than capitalist, individualist, "democratic" countries, despite the plethora of evidence. If it's true than perhaps both the dogma that democracy solves all problems, and the publicly accepted image of China in the west isn't true.

But no that can't be right, so let's not think about it too hard.
We have the superior ideology, form of governance, the biggest companies. STRONKEST military.
We are the best in everything.
Thus it makes no logical sense that we even can lose in a fair competition.
If, some how we lost, it must be due to others cheating.
Everything wrong is because of others and not me.
I am the BEST.

Lol.
If a second outbreak hits Sydney, I wonder if they will finally decide to shut up then since nothing they say is going to change anything. It is a nations responsibility to carry out the corona-virus response, not China's and hence whether they shutdown or simply use a different method via extreme contact tracing instead. It just so happens that China is much more willing to fight the good fight and have all hands on deck while the rest of the world simply sucks at it because they had it easy. This virus simply exposes the weakness of a Democratic society against a real crisis made worse by having leaderships that are simply incapable of doing there job while blaming others while in China, there leadership and there ability to do what needs to be done instead of debating the righteousness of the methods in that moment is why they are able to land on there feet. Other democratic countries can get results that as good like South Korea and other nations around south east Asia, heck even Iran is doing comparatively better. Hence this situation is entirely the western worlds fault and only there fault.

Just listening to Radio 4, and they just had some random priest on rambling about how cancelling Christmas could be a good thing, because, and I paraphrase, previously ‘secular’ celebrations of Christmas is too cheery that it drowns out the lords’ light. That the bleaker and darker your lives, the most amazing the lords light will be if it shines on you. They had this guy on for like 10 minutes at the morning prime time!

The hamfisted propaganda aside, I thought it a pretty good and accurate encapsulation of western ideology.

Rather than trying to make everyone’s lives better the world over, they would prefer everyone be trapped in darkness and misery, so that the tiny bit of ‘light’ they can be bothered to cast on you when it suits them and doesn’t cost them would seem like the most amazing gift, that you should be eternally grateful for.

I am so glad that China is winning the vaccine race, because if it is the west, you can be sure they will look to themselves and friends first, and then try to leverage the vaccine to force massive political and economic concessions as the price for non-allies to get it.

This kinda makes me wish for the fall of the western world, in particular the USA just to force these Anglo Saxon aholes to finally get what has taken many century’s of suffering and evil to finally come back to hit them. They have spent so many years blowing up the world while forcing others to praise them for it while demonising those would simply commuted the crime to trying to do better the right way. This time, when justice finally hits, they will be taken down so hard they will never recover. Bring on the civil war, as you know Trump is trying to be a dictator here and given the amount of problems that he has left without trying to fix, everything in the USA will and then they will be SOL

Hi B.I.B.,

If the vacines don't work and the possible end of mankind is on the horizon

New Zealand will be the safest place to be, being an island with rich resources.
It's not just the possibility of the vaccine not working, conservationists are claiming that if everybody got one dose of vaccine, another 250.000 on top of the 3million sharks currently being killed for their squalene for human use. Squalene supposedly enhances the vaccine by creating a stronger immune response.
