That's total BS. Can you produce any proof whatsoever for this statement attributed to Zhang?

Again, more anti-China hysteria.

China's leaders would probably prefer Biden over Trump the same way a boxer would prefer sparring against a fellow boxer rather than a maniac waving two chainsaws around with his pinkies. The maniac would probably hurt himself a lot more than you, but the risk just isn't worth it

When you're forced to test, arithmetically you'll get more asymptomatic than when self-selecting tests. In later case you get a test most likely because you have symptoms. What do you think?

Most people don't have to put in tax returns. That's one version of freedom.

Oh, I forgot Green Pea porridge. Super good. I like all the porridge on offer. You can also have this on your rice noodles.

What is iPhone market share in China? It used to be fairly modest, running well behind Android.

This has to be a gee-up. Have you followed anything that happened elsewhere?

I thought the aim was to increase accessibility for minorities, who can then study the usual range of disciplines. Are you suggesting this is not so any more?

Some years ago there was a lot of debate in Aust about 'hijab' vs other forms/colours) - country by country analysis. Surprised that China doesn't get that specific. Most Xinjiang Muslim women just wear the white hat? Surely that's not banned.

👇comments from about the Australian discussion of China are spot on. The hypocrisy displayed by some self-proclaimed defenders of liberal democracy deserves to be called out, as do the cheap slurs they so regularly deploy.

Have they banned 'hijab', or face veiling? Pretty big difference. When I visited three Xinjiang localities around 10 yrs ago, I recall seeing only 1 full veil in 2 weeks travel, so rare I took note. Veiling must have increased significantly since?
