Coronavirus can not pass the pile of manure. Thake that you bad virus. I hear that there are some cities under quarantine in China.

I just watch a video yesterday about a village in Henan where the villagers carved through a cliff so they would not be secluded anymore. Now they block the road, Definitely an unfortunate product of this outbreak.

All Things Chinese
Many cities in Hubei Province are under quarantine, including its capital city Wuhan with 11 million people, which is unprecedented in history.

So far there are nearly 7,000 confirmed cases of infection with over a hundred dead. How many cases are yet to confirm? Some put the current number of infection over a hundred thousand. Well, since it is unconfirmed, no one can say it for sure and no point to blow it up into a doomsday scenario.

However, we may see the worst figures coming in a week or so before the situation begins to turn better. Everyone in the world should keep vigilant.

It’s just the start of the horrible 12-year circle. But whatever happens, it is just the darkest period before brilliant dawn.

A poor Chinese village in Henan Province under state government assistance decided to do something to help people more in need.

The villagers spent three days to dig out scallions from the field with their own hand and collected 50,000 kg green onions to send to Wuhan, a city under quarantine since January 23.

Proof humans are basically good and will help others. In the grand scheme of things, it is how we all survive.

Eric
Paul so true, without a government telling them to do it. That is humanity at its finest.

You know we have some Chinese students crying about racism because a Chinese restaurant in Nova Scotia posted that Chinese students were not allowed to eat in, they offered takeout delivery for one month.

Yet a city in China is quarantined and they don’t cry. They stay home to stop the spread. I don’t get it. Its the decadence of the west, you know gotta stop taking stuff personally. Chinese owners too, so no doubt they have fear of the virus. So now because a student complaining they have closed the restaurant for a month. Cooperation in china, selfishness in the west.

I was having that exact conversation this morning. American (especially north) have to take issue with everything. Can’t just let people live their own lives because someone thinks their way is better.

Eric
Yes, I agree.

All Things Chinese
This is a quite valid discussion. It is an ongoing social experiment in terms of how to draw a fine line and keep a good balance between centralisation and democracy.

The biggest disruption to the progress is the religious attitudes in politics.

soxfan1957
There is a saying that more wars have been started over religion. It is definitely a taboo subject when speaking in a room of strangers.

All Things Chinese
That’s right. Which is why there will be no place for religion and religious attitude towards politics in the higher civilisation that humanity is about to enter.

In this world, there are many things that deserve our respect but nothing is sacred, because they are just the products of our mind.

Eric
Yet the radical left is attempting to turn science into religion. Not as a deity on high but as a noble unarguable fact. I find it scary.

All Things Chinese
Science has already been turned into a religion, and its method is viewed as exclusive and sacred, very much to the advantages of the economic and political corporate establishment that rules the planet at the moment.

Eric
That’s true.

soxfan1957
Eric the left is much less religious than the right (at least here in the US). It’s God this and God and it’s our God-given right to carry assault rifles.

That disenchantment you have of the left is because of who your leader is just as I’m tainted over the right because of mine. Maybe we can meet halfway. How does Manitoba sound? Or North Dakota?

I can only speak of the USA but I would agree the left queues science while the right ignores it.

Eric
All we need is rational debate and a gradual transition. But, everyone, it seems, wants to be right.

soxfan1957
We are back in the dark ages. As our friend (All Things Chinese) has told us there will be a day of enlightenment. We just have to be patient.

All Things Chinese
We can make sure we’ll see the light at the end of the tunnel by entertaining the desirable thoughts only since each thought will be sent out and spread in the universe.

In my case, I would be very selective in terms of which link to click on when online and keep away from the information and opinions that might lead to an undesirable result.

For instance, I will not read or watch FOX, SKY, CNN, and VOA and virtually anything from Taiwan.

Now that’s a community in action. Bravo!! Humanity in action and not rhetoric.

My first thought though. Chinese Hells Angles chapter. šŸ˜…šŸ˜…šŸ¤£

All Things Chinese
There are nice Chinese (such as villagers in Henan and Yunnan) and there are nasty Chinese (such as folks in charge of Wuhan Red Cross), just like the people in every country in the world.

There are nice aspects and there are nasty traits in every person, which is why humans are humans, not devils or angels.

But a responsible government and media environment can help bring out the positive sides (such as the community spirit) from the general public, while an irresponsible government (such as the US commerce department) and media outlets push the selfishness even anti-social temperament to the surface.

Spring is in the air and the sun is warming the land and killing the virus.

Eric
Let us hope that is so, Paul. Were there cases in the rural areas also?

soxfan1957
Not that I know of. However, there were a couple people out sick this week in my group. I think there will be a lot of cases that go unnoticed too.

All Things Chinese
The news from America and Canada are not so encouraging.

However, if the temperature of the weather indeed plays a crucial role, then

1) I would question the judgement of the captains of the both “Princess” cruise ships. Why didn’t they sail the ships towards the equator but go ashore Japan and America?

2) Here Downunder will face a tragic time ahead. šŸ˜„
