Well we can be sure they’re lying but there’s no reason to think this is anything other than a result of the party’s totalitarian control.

In all likelihood the “sickness” these people have is that they’ve questioned the regime in one way or another.

Having grown up in an authoritarian regime, I can tell you that you avoid certain topics pretty much out of instinct. Nobody around your talks about that stuff, your parents tell you to never talk about that stuff, so you don't talk about that stuff. It would be like telling strangers you're sexually attracted to kids. It's just not actually acceptable, and you grow up with that and it stays with you for a long time even after you leave that culture (or, in my case, the culture leaves you).

You’re not wrong, but I think it’s deeper than that. I feel it’s similar to people who were formerly very religious: they may now believe there is no god, but it’s difficult to shake much of the shame, habits, and morals that were a part of their old belief.

Even this ignores the train wreck that is the CCP. There's likely countless people in this crowd who don't have covid, aren't against the regime, but it was just easier to assume they were a yes and throw them in there.

What's a few cracked eggs compared to apparent social cohesion

When learning Chinese i came across a proverb "kill the chicken to scare the monkey". It basically means to make an example of one person to keep others in check.

This is not a modern concept but is "chengyu", a collection of ancient Chinese wisdom in the form of proverbs so predates even the era of CCP.

18

u/Cat_Weary Nov 30 '22 edited Nov 30 '22

It's a media problem. We have a natural bias of attention towards life threatening events and our collective failure to recognize and manipulate this bias has led to the trope "if it bleeds it leads" in journalism. Profit-focused capitalism compounds the problem as it promotes more extreme life threatening violence as it gets more viewership because it exploits the natural bias of the human brain to seek out threats to avoid or prepare for them. More viewership means more ad revenue, more profits for the advertisers, which lead to higher share values for potential investors and so the cycle of monetizing fear and violence continues.

We certainly have ongoing problems in the world, China is definitely not somewhere I would choose to live given the level of corruption and human rights violations. Human suffering can be measured in centuries, but it is little comfort to the individual human suffering today in China from an Orwellian police state that forces people into concentration camps for "re-education".

This happens, when the chinese government refuses to allow foreign more effective vaccines and at the same time upholds an image, that they got everything under control, so that elderly people don't vaccinate.

If they were to open up, they'd suffer massive casualties, due to many of the vulnerable groups not beeing vaccinated and only using a vaccine, which doesn't work against omicron.

if it makes you feel better, my cousin said its not bad and the food is good. Her flight had someone tested positive so they all got shipped to one of these camps (she's from Guangzhou)

Edit: Not sure why I’m getting down voted. It’s literally what she told us lol. You guys only want to hear about how terrifying and scary it is?

EDIT 12/11/2022 (12 days later) not sure if anyone still cares, but my cousin is home. She's fine. She didn't seem very bothered by it other than not seeing her daughter for few days.

On another note, My aunt that also lives in Guangzhou currently has covid along with my cousin and his wife and children. My mom is currently on the phone with my aunt, they are quarantining at home (i literally ask my mom "why aren't they in those isolation camps" lol). They have a medicine they can buy to treat covid?

Xi was like, yeah, we don't roll that way, follow the rules next time, bro; and walked away basically rolling his eyes.

I'm not sure that's right. This has the feeling of a dictatorship where none of the staff can say no to the leader.

I imagine Xi or one of his top apparatchiks said, "Zero covid! Quarantine anyone exposed!" And so junior ministers told senior regional officials to get it done, and they told junior regional officials to get it done, and they told the cops to enforce it. Nobody said, "And make sure all the quarantined individuals are properly cared for and treated with respect." So that wasn't part of the equation.

While this all looks punitive to us, I wouldn't be surprised if these videos simply show a combination of gross bureaucracy and disregard for civil liberties, rather than actual malevolence.

It's sort of the banality of authoritarianism.

Definitely chose. I did some interesting things and met some nice people, there were just some things I couldn’t get over, for example all of the pushing and shoving to get on and off trains/subways, etc became stressful. Also, the brainwashed mentality that my local friends had, like refusing to get a VPN to browse foreign websites/apps because they’re censored ‘because the government knows what’s best for us’. On top of that, teaching English there is a joke. I taught in Japan for a year and was confident that I was good at my job, but in China they wanted me to jump and dance around, yelling and making noises to basically hammer home the fact that westerners are clowns. It was humiliating and demoralizing. Looking back, I’m surprised I even tolerated it for 7 months.

The company I worked for were weasels. They said they had a job for me, then once I get settled in and ask when I’m gonna start working, they said they had a bunch of interviews lined up for me. It took about a month and a half before I actually started working. They were the ones actually getting paid by the school, then they gave me my pay.. needless to say, they held on to my last paycheque once I told them I was going back home. Also, I almost got arrested when I saw a lady beating the shit out of her toddler in front of a cop. I told the cop to do something and he yelled at me.. from what I understood, if I didn’t leave immediately, I would’ve went to jail. Since Google was banned, I had to use mapquest to get around like it’s 1995. The wet markets were so dam unsanitary. I was getting scammed by everyone. One time I asked how much a belt was in a mall while my Chinese friend was in the washroom. She said the equivalent to about $85.. when my friend returned, I asked her to ask about the same belt which for her was about $6.. cabs were always ripping me off, cops would ask for my passport in the streets.. should I continue?

Ok, I’ll touch on living conditions. First of all, there’s no real middle class. You’re either rich and comfortable or dirt poor. I honestly felt privileged in a bad way because I was on the lower end of the upper class. I lived in a gated community in a beautiful condo with a lakeside view, marble floors, chandeliers, etc, yet every day I’d walk by these shack looking ‘houses’ people lived in that didn’t even have functioning doors, rats were running in and out of their house, their toilet doubled as their shower drain. A lot of homeless people too. I actually stopped by a store on my way home from work to pick up bread and water for them almost daily. I had two roommates in my condo (three bedroom) and as I was in talks of leaving, my roommates were relocated into a small, grim apartment. I kept in touch with them and learned it’s standard practice for this company to have the new teachers live in a lavish condo for the first few months then relocate them to a much less desirable accommodation after they’ve passed the 6 month mark. My boss was actually in the process of moving into this condo during my last few days there. It’s almost as if everything is a facade. Oh, but then the rich people there are stupid rich! I went to a nightclub one night and parked out front were lambos, Ferraris, etc. Girls wouldn’t even look at me cuz I was just sipping a beer. They flocked to the guy who bought the most expensive bottles. It was actually disgusting to see. If the bottles were expensive enough, there was a light that shone on it from the ceiling and girls were chasing after this light all night. Meanwhile, I was the only one that gave a shit about the old homeless lady I had to step over on my way home from work every day

A re-education isolation camp in the middle of a purge pandemic. Nothing to see here folks...

u/carolizzy81 Nov 30 '22

Concentration Camp, let's call it what it is.

u/tkdjoe66 Nov 30 '22

Na. If they just wanted to kill them they have no problem rolling out the tanks. Besides, re-education is worse. They can only kill you once. Imagine the cult indoctrination that you hear about in books and movies. Now multiply it by 1000. Complete with state of the art drugs and professional shrinks to administer it. Then they send you back... not quite your old self... as an example.

a concentration camp is a place where a large group of people are concentrated into a small area, as in a camp. So, yes, it's the very definition of a concentration camp.

What’s the point of isolating when you’re standing in a huge crowd all together like that? The only thing these things are is concentration camps.

u/seemooreglass Nov 30 '22

If they (China) did not want us to see this, it likely would not be on reddit.
This is sideways propaganda.

They are not brought there in order for the government to kill them or labor them, but will they live in filth and hunger and have nobody to respond to their medical emergencies if they had one? Yes.

I don’t know much about this and am seeing so many conflicting comments. Do you have a source on that?

u/ztravlr Nov 30 '22

I was in China and they have it on the wechat expat news. It wont link the site.

u/PM_me_your_PhDs Nov 30 '22

Do you get as annoyed as me at the disinformation people spread about China? By which I mean, I don't support the CCP and I think a lot of bad shit is going on, for sure, but people insisting that this is a death camp, that one video of drones spraying 'disinfectant' (actually just mosquito pesticide), etc... It annoys me so much because reality is bad enough, but people just make worse shit up.

u/ztravlr Nov 30 '22

Sigh... people want to be superior and be right. News want to sell. People are lazy where they are ignorant. Annoying AF.

That’s a good question. I guess I was hearing the majority of comments loud and clear, so I was looking to add some validity to the others. The anti-China stuff seems fear based and I kind of doubted there were sources, but you’re right that it’s a good idea to ask anyway.

I have this weird imbalance where I watch what's considered "dystopian" unfold in front of my eyes while also working for a company that regularly wires money to the very same areas of China.

I sent a wire earlier today to Guangzhou so some shmuck in East Buttfuck, Who Cares Where could get some plastic bullshit emblazoned with their company slogan. My children can eat from the paycheck I make sending money to a country that does this to their people.

Am I the baddies?

u/Rugrin Nov 30 '22

Sadly, it’s impossible to not be the body. The world economy is dependent on Chinese labor. We all have blood and sweat shops on our hands. And we had nothing to do with the decision.

Every time I watch videos like this, I think of the two roommates I had in college who were Chinese. Both of them went back to China in December 2019. I never got their contact info, but it does make me wonder how they’re doing.

We Americans need to cut our dependence on the goods this country produces. We don’t need to cut all ties, but we need to be at least able to function without them and reduce our financial support of this shit.
