Coronavirus Crisis Awakens a Sleeping Giant: China’s Youth

The coronavirus outbreak has mobilized young people in China, sounding a call to action for a generation that had shown little resistance to the ruling Communist Party’s agenda.

For much of their lives, many young Chinese have been content to relinquish political freedoms as long as the party upheld its end of an unspoken authoritarian bargain by providing jobs, stability and upward mobility. Now, the virus has exposed the limits of that trade-off.

Angry and agitated, many young Chinese are pushing back on the government’s efforts to conceal its missteps and its resistance to allowing civil society to help.

Some have spoken out about the cost of secrecy, taking aim at censorship and the muzzling of whistle-blowers. Others, by organizing volunteers and protests, have tested the party’s hostility to independent groups. Still others have sought to hold opaque state-backed charities to account by exposing how public donations were funneled first to government offices instead of hospitals.

The outbreak has prompted a generational awakening that could match the defining effects of World War II or the 2008 financial crisis and that could disrupt the social stability on which the Communist Party depends.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, this virus is a bioweapon, introduced to China to seed destabilization here, would this, on top of an horrific economic slide, not been one of the design objectives for the introduction of such a weapon?!?

And BTW, when will a DNA decoding of this virus ever be available to the public?!?

Folks, if in fact, it was a bioweapon, even a bioweapon in development, no matter who developed it, the short answer is... never.
