The coronavirus pandemic is showing the world what communist China is truly about—suppression and secrecy. Just like the Soviets, its leaders are hiding how bad it is and muzzling those who try to tell the truth to the world.
This always happens.
As the state grows in power, those who begin as comrades become controllers. They are their gods. When they taste power, they want more. It’s the ultimate drug.
Socialism always devolves into slavery. It does so because it’s incompatible with our bent nature and broken world. It never works. This is why Chinese communism is doomed. And it’s good news.
The good news about the coronavirus, as with all viruses, is that it’s not the end of the world and should recede in intensity as winter becomes spring and then summer. I sure hope so.
I also hope that, like Chernobyl was the deathblow to Russian communism, the coronavirus cover-up will be the beginning of the end for Chinese socialism.
It’s my prayer that lives will be spared, so that as many Chinese as possible will be there to build a new and free nation on the ruins of a failed socialist state. They deserve it.
Freedom always wins. Why? Because we’re made for it.

An apt correlation
I would agree that China as much to answer for. I am not sure that Russia is the example I would use though. The Russian people have traded one evil form of government for another. What you have now in Russia is not freedom. It is tyranny. Mr. Putin is not much different than President XI of China.
We will see how the world comes through this. Will we have learned lessons? Will we be able to trust each other globally? Will we trust each other state to state? Will we trust our federal government?
Thanks for your conversation and your passion. Grateful for it Patrick.
Hi, Steve—I think Russia is an apt comparison in how its regime tried to deny and hide their Chernobyl disaster. I agree that Russians haven’t gotten what they deserve in terms of freedom and real leadership, but there’s no denying that life in Putin’s Russia is not as oppressive as life in the USSR. I know it’s a matter of degree and it’s unfortunate the former KGB head swooped into the vacuum to take over. Thanks for your comment.
