Vince Dhimos answered a question at Quora:
WHY DON’T ALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD UNITED TO SANCTION CHINA, CONTROL ITS ECONOMY AND SOVEREIGNTY SO THAT EVENTS LIKE THE COVID-19 WON’T BE COVERED UP?
The only reason so many millions of people have formed a lynch mob against China, demanding it pay compensation for damages it supposedly caused, is because of powerful US propaganda, backed up by billions of dollars, which is now intensified because the Republicans realize that Trump could lose the next election because of the current disastrous economic numbers, and they are working feverishly to fabricate at all costs a strong anti-China narrative for the purpose of winning the election in November, even though they know that no country can ever be justifiably blamed for the spread of a virus, and that indeed there is no precedent for such.
After all, if such were the case, the US could theoretically have been sued for spreading polio or AIDS throughout the world at times when these diseases were more heavily concentrated in the US than in any other country and Americans were spreading these infections around the globe. Indeed, if such blame were justifiable or made sense, then the US could be blamed for the spread of COVID-19 because the US is now the epicentre of the pandemic and Trump irresponsibly downplayed the outbreak for weeks, thoughtlessly claiming it would soon go away “like a miracle” and that it would all blow over by Easter. The delayed announcement of the outbreak by the PRC authorities pales by comparison with the demented statements by the US president downplaying the danger long after scientists had established the seriousness of the coming catastrophe. Yet now, this grossly irresponsible leader is trying to deflect the blame for his failure onto China.
Here is what many Americans and citizens of their satellite countries are forgetting.
The US et al. have virtually unlimited resources to spend on propaganda, and this includes not only statements by politicians but also, and primarily, subtle wording or even direct allegations in the msm suggesting or alleging that this or that national leader is misbehaving (cf. the weapons of mass destruction lie that sparked the Iraq war) and must be punished by the US gendarme. While the US government does not directly control journalists, most media slavishly follow the narrative of US politicians, and those media that stray beyond government-approved norms and contradict important US narratives are punished in different ways. Further, even the most serious and responsible independent researchers are seeing their posts on certain sensitive topics removed from various social media. For example, Ron Unz of the respectable site Unz Review had this entire Facebook page removed, including thousands of well-researched articles posted over years, and was banned from FB because he made the “mistake” of presenting the Chinese view of the origin of COVID-19. While not government-owned, Facebook is a social media monopoly that by rights should respect the rights of its users. Unz did not encourage his readers to commit a crime or do something immoral. In a democratic country, all opinions are allowed, and if the government or other powerful group disagrees, they are free to present their case against these opinions. And dare I add that no journalist such as Julian Assange would be jailed in a true democracy for blowing the whistle on powerful agents who exceed their authority? Yet we now have many cases of individuals censored because they disagree with the US Establishment’s narrative, and the narrative is typically a false or dubious one intended to harm another country or national leader or even to prepare the minds of citizens to approve a US military invasion or sanctions that impoverish ordinary people undeserving of punishment. The latest anti-China campaign, led by a mentally unstable megalomaniac desperate to be re-elected after making grave missteps, seeks to cause great harm to the second largest economy on earth on unprecedented grounds, ie, accusations that no nation has ever before brought in a court case, namely that a country supposedly maliciously spread a pandemic, and with no real proof whatsoever.
I have been posting at Quora about the COVID-19 issues ever since the outbreak and have several answers that refute the 24/7 US propaganda effort against China.
I have shown
1—that the world is not fully unanimous as to the origin of the virus, and yet dissenting viewpoints are heavily censored. We are seeing the reincarnation of the Soviet Union!
2—that China is a benevolent power compared to the US and is helping eradicate poverty, notably with its BRI, while US economic policies only widen the gap between rich and poor and have led to tent cities offering a last resort for survival of the US’s indigent.
3—that if the world were to demand fairness, then the US would have been sanctioned decades ago for its misdeeds, which had killed millions of people in unjustified homicidal wars all over the globe and killed thousands with sanctions that denied people the sustenance needed for life. China has never done anything remotely resembling this barbarity!
Below is a link to my answer relating to possible origins of COVID-19 that have been proposed by countries other than the world’s no. 1 bully.
Below is my link to a post showing that China is not the enemy but in fact is a country that seeks to eliminate poverty.
Below is a link to my post reminding the reader that the US is the enemy, not China.
I am certain that if the author of the present question had read these posts and taken them seriously, he or she would have asked instead:
Why don’t all countries in the world join together to sanction the US so that the countless tragic deaths, maimings, loss of limbs and wanton destruction of infrastructure due to events like the Korean War, the Vietnam War (including the destruction of rainforests and poisoning by Agent Orange), the Syrian conflict, the Iraq War, the War in Afghanistan, Panama, etc and all the US sanctions and US-engineered regime change coups won’t be covered up?
Before the US demands compensation for a virus whose origin is still hotly disputed by experts in microbiology, let the US pay compensation to all the victims of the above-mentioned events.
Then, once the origin of the latest pandemic is firmly established by the WHO, please come back and ask your question about the entity determined to be actually guilty.
You may be surprised who that is.
