Xi hijacking the moral compass

As they say in jurisprudence, suppression of evidence is evil than the crime, China did not allow independent global bodies to investigate the crime scene. That’s culpable, just not heinous and shameful.

Now Xi is proposing a global firewall, to ward off the virus… too late, really amoral. (word count 450, reading time 2-3 minutes).

Though the debate on how the virus originated is far from over, the entire world is literally sizzling with the impact of the pandemic. Almost after 12 million globally affected, over a million in death from Covid-19, a completely shattered global economy, the impact has been severe, especially for those who are economically deprived – irrespective of the countries or families.

It is natural for the viruses to jump in the man-animal barrier, however, it is strange for the genome of the new virus, almost assembled in a manufacturing unit. A biologist will understand the fidelity of the genome and how the ideal natural variations exist. Several treatises exist on this conundrum.

However, as they say in jurisprudence, suppression of evidence is evil than the crime, China did not allow independent global bodies to investigate the crime scene. That’s culpable, just not heinous and shameful.

Things don’t end there, knowing the diversion of defense priorities, and the weaknesses in economies, and the national tragedies, Xi ruthlessly embarked on his grand plan of Land Grab and consolidate the communist hegemony further. South China Sea, Ladhak are events fresh on the canvass of global memory. This is on top of all its imperialist exploitation of all vulnerable economies.

‘Global Firewall’ – Really?

At the recently concluded Group of 20 Economies, hosted online by Saudi Arabia, Xi recommended that nations should build a global firewall to safeguard against the virus. To enable economies to reopen, Xi proposed setting up an international mechanism of health codes linked to the polymerase chain reaction test. The mechanism assigns colored QR codes to citizens based on their COVID-19 test results; those who test negative are given a green QR code on their mobile phones, allowing them to skirt some social restrictions. The mechanism has been in use in China since February.

The problem with morals is that they can be equally preached by amoral with disdain. The problem with the recipient like me, I truly would like this sermon to come from those on moral pedestals. We can possibly presume, he is not preaching morals. If that is true, he possibly is trying to assure that his economy is not further hot or the economies of his customers are safeguarded. Is he realizing the heat from a poor global economy?

Xi and the CPC are tyrannical and criminally ruthless in dominating the world. China’s CPC, Is amongst one of the bane and pain of the emerging world order. Can amoral truly have the conviction to preach morals, and occupy moral high chair?
