For CCP's "prosperity and stability" humanity suffers coercion and covid torture
Emperor Xi Jinping does not care about the demands from others for records of infections or deaths, nor the science of the source or spread of COVID-19, nor radiation from a leaking nuclear power plant or anything else.
As far as CCP are concerned, Xi Jinping is sitting on his Middle Kingdom throne around which the whole world revolves and everyone else be damned!
END OF STORY!
In 2019 CCP declared a biological war on humanity by deliberately releasing and spreading the laboratory created coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and the disease it causes COVID-19.
CCP'S China has an outdated system of people control based upon its feudal Han Chinese plutocracy which violates UN human rights : CCP has a surveillance-based information system controlled by CCP, for CCP, which violates UN human rights. Combined, these two systems create a problem for all humanity in dealing with CCP's China's who exports their systems' shortcomings and failures including SARS-CoV-2 and the disease it causes COVID-19. (Please see articles below).
In HK and China there is state orchestrated drive for 'stability' using coercion as a means of torture caused by the structural violence of CCP's feudal Chinese plutocracy : i.e. if you want 'prosperity' then you must accept and support CCP's actions for 'stability' which include arbitrary disappearances, murder, Tiananmen massacre, COVID-19 pandemic source and spreading, Xinjiang genocide, etc.
CCP as a virus is now expanding the process of exporting its 'stability and prosperity' mantra globally for CCP's benefit using COVID. In reality the desire for stability and prosperity is self-serving, rather than for the good of humanity.
The questions to ask are:
1) How are stability and prosperity each defined? and
2) Do these two things have to be at the expense of UN treaty obligations?
The CCP panda is in reality a wolf in disguise, spouting its false narrative about stability and prosperity. The world must decouple from the coercion and torture wreaked upon the world.
As an example, CCP's 'land reforms' caused the 'Great Famine' and the deaths of at least 77million Chinese citizens since 1949 - CCP is the world's worst ever totalitarian regime. CCP is a criminal organization which is spreading its organizational viruses that will only increase, poverty, destruction and inequality.
As a further example, many nations are already having reason to question and reconsider the wisdom of participating in CCP's 'belt and road initiative'.
To stop CCP's coercion of humanity the world must decouple from CCP and stop being a party to their 'stability and prosperity' ploy.
The true challenge facing the world today is to find creative ways to realise healthy inter-dependency for the good of humanity and the earth.
CCP please answer the following UN letters sent to you:

Beyond amnesia: CCP’s attempt to legitimize June Fourth Massacre｜Kevin Carrico
Apple Daily 5 June 2021
We generally think of the Chinese Communist Party’s approach to the events of 1989 as enforced forgetting: a state-sponsored project of amnesia.
This is undoubtedly true, yet the Party’s approach to 1989 extends beyond just forgetting the unforgettable to a growing impulse to justify the unjustifiable and legitimize the irreparably illegitimate: the decision by senior leaders of the Chinese Communist Party and the People’s Liberation Army to gun down innocent civilians on the streets of the nation’s capital on the evening of June 3 and 4, 1989.
On the one hand, the Party tells us that nothing worth remembering happened in Peking in June 1989. And yet, on the other hand, if anything did actually happen, what the People’s Liberation Army did put China on the correct path of stability and prosperity.
This narrative requires a reframing of the events of 1989 from the ruthless suppression of a nascent civil society by a corrupt aristocracy willing to do anything to stay in power to an origin myth for China’s reform-era economic miracle: this myth tells us that only by taking “resolute measures” in 1989 is China able to have the “stability” and “prosperity” that it enjoys today.
Origin myths reliably narrate not only the beginning of the world, but also the introduction of sin into the world: the two are after all inseparable insofar as such imperfection is necessary for the very existence of humanity.
Take, for example, the story of Adam and Eve, who by eating from the tree of knowledge introduced sin into the world: yet it is of course only by the introduction of such “sin” that the entire history of humanity unfolded, such that those who believe this myth owe their existence precisely to this sin.
A similar logic is apparent in the origin story of China’s “economic miracle.” The massacre of civilians in the streets of the nation’s capital in 1989 incorporated an unshakeable evil into the core of the regime’s power. And yet, the Party tell us, it was only by the introduction of this apparent evil that the stable and prosperous China that one knows (or at least imagines) today is able to exist: as if deep within the laws of economics there was some sort of secret conversion formula between human blood spilled and GDP growth.
The haunting specter of “anti-China forces” and their deployment of “instability” to “hinder China’s rise” forces citizens trapped within this discourse to make a fundamentally false choice between running over innocent civilians with tanks or allowing China to collapse into chaos: I call this a false choice because anyone outside of this discourse can see that the economic growth of the past three decades is not in fact derived from this violence. The current dip in GDP, after all, will not be resolved by driving a few more tanks down Chang’an Avenue.
While it is impossible to know what the majority of people in China actually think about such matters on account of the numbing mix of indoctrination and surveillance that the Chinese Communist Party sees as its number one governance priority, I can say from experience that this narrative has a certain receptive (albeit also admittedly captive) audience in China today.
Scratch the surface of a regime-supporting nationalist questioning the Tiananmen Massacre by nitpicking about whether anyone in fact died on Tiananmen Square (short answer: yes, they did), and one will suddenly find a nationalist who sees it as his or her solemn patriotic duty to find excuses for the massacre of compatriots: a very curious form of nationalism, one might note.
The Chinese Communist Party thankfully abandoned its earlier failed project of redistributing wealth to realize a communist utopia, a project which led in reality to a leveling redistribution of poverty.
Yet it has not and indeed cannot abandon its far more insidious project of ideologically redistributing guilt for its crimes in 1989, by convincing people that the better-off lives that they lead today could only be built on the foundation of these crimes, such that people willingly buy into this cruelty: sympathy for and memorialization of the dead, a bond with one’s fellow countrymen and countrywomen killed in the most horrific of circumstances, are thereby imagined as an insidious foreign plot.
The result of this discursive construction would appear to be an endlessly self-reproducing cycle of one-party rule: any form of dissent is immediately othered as a threat, and even the most horrid measures deployed to crush that dissent is legitimized in the service of the “collective good” of stability and prosperity.
And this is indeed how this cycle has functioned thus far. There is however no guarantee that this is how it will function in the future. The model’s weak point can be found in the simple fact that gunning down people in the streets is actually not a very effective way of handling complex social and political problems, of which China has many.
Despite its self-congratulatory narratives about stability, the CCP’s stability enforcement silences frank discussion of pressing issues. Such repression reliably produces a superficial image of stability, but below the surface, the issues reliably remain present, unresolved, and festering: the cover-up of COVID-19 in Wuhan, the concentration camp system in Xinjiang, and the escalating destruction of Hong Kong, for example, have all proceeded in accordance with this stability-minded model, and all have produced far more problems than they have resolved.
Peking has thus perfected the ideological legitimation of one-party rule, to the point that many citizens actually buy into its bloody origin myth of the need for resolute measures to ensure “stability” and their prosperity.
Yet we must not confuse such ideological legitimation with actual legitimacy, which is something that a one-party state can never achieve in today’s world. Any government that would like to build a foundation for social stability and lasting rule, after all, would be well-advised to seek out more sustainable paths for conflict resolution than extreme violence.
Today, on the thirty-second anniversary of the Tiananmen Massacre, the Chinese Communist Party believes that its strength lies in having built a model that does not require the exploration of political alternatives: ironically, I propose that this belief in its own strength will end up being the system’s greatest and most likely fatal weakness.

'China’s COVID calamity'｜Robert Blohm
Apple Daily 8 June 2021
China’s information-control system creates its own virus problems, and its people-control system solves them while enabling the spread of the problems to other countries.
Yet those other countries, practitioners of neither information-control nor people-control, have their own solution that China’s information-control system hasn’t been particularly adept at, namely effective vaccines.
Let’s consider some established facts.
The Communist Party’s information-control system, and the concomitant slowness of information-sucking centralized decision-making, prevented identification of the COVID-19 outbreak and communication among the population at large quickly enough for individuals to take precautions. By cleaning sites and destroying samples, it also eliminated the possibility of forensics.
But China’s people-control system responded, belatedly, and eventually managed to control the spread by physically detaining entire subpopulations in isolation — something it still does. The immediate vehicle of China’s ancient people-control system is the ubiquitous Communist Party system of neighborhood committees available to control all entry and exit from premises. That system complements the ancient architecture of single-entrance buildings, compounds, and courtyards, itself an impact of the biome on Chinese culture over centuries.
China’s traditional use of human manure (versus animal manure in Europe) as fertilizer nourished the biome and may have contributed to making China, historically, an exporter of plagues internally contained via people-control. Ecological parasitologist Kevin Lafferty in Proceedings of the Royal Society in 2006 first illustrated the impact of the biome on human culture. Karl Marx even praised China’s “recycling” of human manure as opposed to its treatment as sewage in Western cities, which Marx criticized as wastage typical of capitalism.
The people-control system removed the urgency in China of developing a vaccine effective enough in immunizing against the virus, as much as it has lent urgency in advanced countries to developing their own effective vaccine(s), precisely because of the absence of the people-control system unique to China.
China’s main motivation in developing a vaccine has been directed abroad for commercial opportunity, face-saving (because of China’s initiation of the pandemic), and the political opportunity of providing free vaccines to poor countries. The motivation abroad in developing a vaccine was desperation: The only way to control the pandemic there is to eliminate it through herd immunity, the best long-term outcome. Rather than vaccine development abroad, China would much prefer that its people-control system be adopted there, but that would serve only to manage and control the pandemic.
Coincidentally, China’s information-control system impairs China’s ability to develop an effective-enough vaccine, while the absence of an information-control system abroad has enabled optimally effective vaccine development there. In particular, because of the effectiveness of its people-control system, China has no critical mass of its own infected people left to do clinical trials on and, therefore, conducts poorly documented, insufficiently transparent clinical trials on infected populations in disparate developing countries.
Most importantly, China’s ideology-first, politics-first information-control system precludes the free flow, peer-review, and publication of information about these trials among clinicians worldwide that is the very essence of empirical science. Poor science and technology generated by China’s information-control system, in turn, enables outright deception by China’s vaccine developers in releasing information.
The Sinovac CoronaVac vaccine was trialed out in Brazil but was shown to be only 50.4% effective. That is, when including all trial subjects eventually infected by the virus, not just the ones with serious symptoms on whom Sinovac admitted, it was basing a previously announced 78% effectiveness statistic.
China is now targeting vaccinating only 40% of its population and with its own less-effective vaccines. Without herd immunity in China, the biggest culture shock of the COVID pandemic may be occurring there: cancellation of Lunar New Year mass migration for the long term.
We thus see how systemic failure in China comes at both ends of the pandemic: failure to nip the outbreak in the bud and lower efficacy of China’s own vaccine(s).
