So for Michael Norton, we must not aspire to be like the Chinese because they are communist. Now I seem to remember that we were told that the reason why the West was so successful is because of capitalism which encourages competition and light touch government because it allows the market to regulate itself, despite the fact that this has produced great inequalities and increasing poverty in an ever increasing proportion of the population, and an exploitation of developing countries. So now that China has adopted some of the methods of capitalism but with some socialist/communist slant, it has become a bad thing. Humility demands that we get the best of both worlds and learn from the Chinese and adopt some of their success methods to improve the lot of humanity rather than to increase the oppression. After all would it be better to be able to live without lockdowns and fear of infections and with life returning to normal after a stringent but short lockdown, or to preserve ‘freedom’ live in constant threat of lockdowns, mass infections and economic ruin?
