Disagree, because of the sheer number of sources you can get your information from.

It sucks that you have to pay for research papers. Academic papers should be freely available.

Agree.

The WA is unworkable for the vast majority of ideologies:
Neither a right-wing libertarian secular state, a conservative Muslim monarchy, nor a social democratic, arguably SJW Muslim state(Saranidia) can feasibly follow it, neither can a merchant republic or a conservative Christian monarchy.
I tried all except the last two.

The only ideology that can really succeed in the WA is either a centre, centre-left or centre-right secular state run by lawyers or a rogue state which blanrantly breaks the laws they themselves vote on.

Agree. Though "Centre" by international standards, not the American definition where Conservatism and resistance to change is "Centrist" as opposed to Pragmatic uses of Left/Right ideas to come up with solutions/policy proposals.


Be thankful Covid-19 started in China. If it started in the United States, taking into account how Americans began whining like puppies being dissected alive because they're Boomers/Xers, the world would be in a much, much worse situation as it'll spread like wildfire.

It does exist now. Sadly, after the Oslo Accords -The West's second greatest betrayal of Jews in that century after Holocaust- its existence was solidified.

The Chinese Communist Party has a long historial of purposefully hiding information if it benefits them geopolitically. Believing they are deliberately under-reporting on COVID-19 cases is therefore justified.

Oh wait, you were serious?
Yea, why don't we take a bunch of people who are pissed off with lockdown (as they perceive as a violation of their freedoms), and force them, beyond their will, to join the military, an organisation which will take away even more of their freedoms, in order to enforce these lockdowns, the very thing they were pissed with in the first place.

We'll take a group of people who are pissed off at a piece of legislation, and conscript them so that they can enforce that legislation.

What could possibly go wrong?

Agree. They have misled the international community and actively punish those who criticize the government's action (As they have always done with dissenters)

Edit: Most infuriating thing is they'll probs not only get off scot-free but they'll also end up benefitting from it.
