Coronavirus 2


              SUN Dawu imprisoned during the SARS crisis of 2003

孙大午 . 中外历史上多少英雄豪杰、仁人志士舍生忘死地追求"均贫富,等贵贱"的人类梦想,经过几千年的血雨腥风、朝代更替,只有到了现代的工商时代才在一些发达国家实现了"等贵贱"的理想。

Sun Dawu. In the history of China and foreign countries, how many heroic heroes and philanthropists have dedicated themselves to the pursuit of the human dream of "both rich and poor, noble and low". Some developed countries have realized the ideal of "equality and nobility".

The new crown virus epidemic that has spread across the country has had a significant impact on China's economy. Issues such as reduced consumption, delayed rework, and traffic disruptions caused by the epidemic have brought severe crises to Chinese farmers and SMEs.

According to the New York Times, the hardest hit by the epidemic was not IKEA, Apple and other powerful large companies, but small-scale operators who were engaged in farming and doing business in China.

For example, the 40,000 chickens raised by Qiu Xiangjian, a farmer in Jiangsu Province, have nowhere to go because the slaughterhouse and feed mill have been closed, and the existing feed can only be maintained for two days. In addition, due to traffic restrictions such as road closures, it is difficult to transport even if he finds feed.

Qiu Xiangjian said with emotion: "Now it's not a loss of money, it's about losing everything."

There are still many farmers like Qiu Xiangjian. The Beijing News reported that an agricultural company in Wuhan had landfilled 100,000 chicken seedlings due to insufficient feed, and lost about 100,000 yuan per day

A new coronavirus epidemic has led to a suspension of economic activity. A hotel in Wuhan, Hubei Province was unoccupied on January 29, 2020.

Hebei Private Entrepreneur Sun Dawu asked for help on Weibo: "Continued, will affect the national supply of livestock and poultry eggs in a few months, cause market panic, affect social stability, and call on the government to take immediate measures."

Affected by the epidemic, Sun Dawu had to close a hot spring resort and leave 1,500 workers on vacation. It is estimated that he would lose more than 49 million yuan.

After the State Council approved the extension of the 2020 Spring Festival holiday to February 2, Wang Xiaodong, the governor of Hubei Province, said that the resumption of work for various enterprises in the province should not be earlier than February 13. Shanghai, Chongqing, Guangdong and many other places have issued notices of postponement of resumption of work, and most regions have stated that the time for resumption of work will not be earlier than February 9.

With the continuous extension of the Spring Festival holiday, SMEs are facing how to deal with employee wages and pressure on rent. The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security stated that if the suspension of production and production is within a wage payment cycle, the employer shall pay wages in accordance with the standards agreed in the labor contract.

A Guangzhou-based investor and entrepreneur, Zhang Heng, told the New York Times, "For me, the goal of 2020 is not development but living. You and I will be bankrupt for a month or two."

When the SARS struck 17 years ago, the tertiary industry, which concentrated the majority of small and medium-sized enterprises, mainly wholesale and retail, accommodation and catering, and entertainment services, was severely impacted. The tertiary industry ’s GDP growth during the outbreak in the second quarter was only 0.8%.

After the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Chinese epidemic as an "public health emergency of international concern", Chinese companies may face international travel and trade restrictions.

Many investors, experts and scholars have called on the Chinese government to lend a helping hand to provide preferential policies for SMEs such as tax reduction, rent subsidies and reductions, and flexible employment.

Huang Tianlei, a researcher at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in the United States, told the China News Service that the government can provide support for small and medium-sized enterprises, and that monetary policy should ensure sufficient liquidity in the market while avoiding the flood of credit. Fiscal policy can be stepped up to deal with the additional pressure brought by this unexpected black swan incident.

The new coronavirus epidemic that has spread across the country has had a significant impact on China's economy. Issues such as reduced consumption, delayed rework, and traffic disruptions caused by the epidemic have brought severe crises to Chinese farmers and SMEs.

一个人唱戏,费力不讨好,所为何来?O崇祯为什么亡国? 当危机来临的时候,所有人都...

Singing alone is hard work, why not come? Why did Chongzhen die? When the crisis comes, everyone

Chongzhen is a reference to the last emperor of the Ming Dynasty. The Chongzhen Emperor (Chinese: 崇禎; pinyin: Chóngzhēn; 6 February 1611 – 25 April 1644), personal name Zhu Youjian (Chinese: 朱由檢; pinyin: Zhū Yóujiǎn), was the 17th and last Emperor of the Ming dynasty as well as the last Han Chinese to reign as Emperor of China. He reigned from 1627 to 1644. "Chongzhen," the era name of his reign, means "honorable and auspicious".

Zhu Youjian was son of the Taichang Emperor and younger brother of the Tianqi Emperor, whom he succeeded to the throne in 1627. He battled peasant rebellions and was not able to defend the northern frontier against the Manchu. When rebels reached the capital Beijing in 1644, he committed suicide, ending the Ming dynasty. The Manchu formed the succeeding Qing dynasty.

All on this site are outliers!! ie. those who do not tow the party line or kow-tow to an emperor.  

The first story on the assassins news site is how the number of new coronavirus cases was the lowest this month in Hubei Province. This is a classic case of trying to change the narrative through selective choice of information or disinformation.

Coronavirus: outspoken academic blames Xi Jinping for 'catastrophe' sweeping China

Xu Zhangrun says culture of suppression and ‘systemic impotence’ have created the crisis that has killed more than 1,000 people

Xu Zhangrun (Chinese: 许章润; pinyin: Xǔ Zhāngrùn; born October 1962) is a Chinese jurist. He is a professor of Jurisprudence and Constitutional Law at Tsinghua University, and a research fellow with the Unirule Institute of Economics.

A prominent Chinese intellectual has become the first high-profile public figure to lay the blame for the coronavirus crisis at the feet of the country’s leader, Xi Jinping, saying the spread of the deadly virus has “revealed the rotten core of Chinese governance”.

As the crisis expands across the country, Xu Zhangrun, a law professor from one of the country’s top universities, lambasted the government under Xi in an essay titled: Viral Alarm, When Fury Overcomes Fear. In it, Xu blamed the current national crisis on a culture of suppression and “systemic impotence” that Xi has created. The virus has now killed more than 1,000 people inside China.

“The cause of all of this lies with The Axelrod and the cabal that surrounds him,” Xu writes, referring to Xi, according to a translation of the article by historian Geremie Barmé published on Monday by the website ChinaFile.

“It is a system that turns every natural disaster into an even greater man-made catastrophe. The coronavirus epidemic has revealed the rotten core of Chinese governance; the fragile and vacuous heart of the jittering edifice of state has thereby shown up as never before.”

A group of Chinese academics, including Xu, have signed an open letter calling for the government to issue an apology to the deceased doctor, Li Wenliang, and for freedom of speech and rights guaranteed by the constitution to be protected. Over the weekend, a woman was photographed in Shanghai holding a sign calling for freedom of speech.

Xu, who was suspended from his position last year after publishing a similarly critical essay of Xi, does not refer to the leader by name but uses other terms to refer to him. In his essay he urges citizens to call for “five demands”, a reference to anti-government protesters in Hong Kong.

The demands he lists relate to freedom of speech and assembly, as well as the right to vote in open elections and an independent body to investigate the response to the coronavirus crisis.

“The ancients observed that ‘it’s easier to dam a river than it is to silence the voice of the people’. Regardless of how good they are at controlling the internet, they can’t keep all 1.4 billion mouths in China shut. Yet again, our ancestors will be proved right,” he wrote.

Quoting the poet Dylan Thomas, Xu wrote in closing: “I join my compatriots – the 1.4 billion men and women, brothers and sisters of China, the countless multitudes who have no way of fleeing this land – and I call on them: rage against this injustice; let your lives burn with a flame of decency; break through the stultifying darkness and welcome the dawn.



China’s age of anxiety

Rowan Callick

 August 07, 2018

Chinese lawyer with a higher degree from the University of Melbourne has issued a rare, powerful critique of China’s “New Era” — the period of increasing centralisation, control and personalisation of power since Xi Jingping became president. Xu Zhangrun, a law professor at Tsinghua University, one of China’s half dozen top higher-education institutions, published the powerful 10,000 character essay, “Our Dread Now, and Our Hopes,” on the website of the Unirule Institute of Economics, a liberal think tank that has challenged the return of authoritarianism.

“Yet again,” Xu writes, “people throughout China — including the entire bureaucratic class — are feeling a sense of uncertainty, a mounting anxiety both in relation to the direction the country is taking as well as in regard to their personal security. These anxieties have generated something of a nationwide panic.”

The feelings are prompted by the fact that China’s recent “national orientation” has betrayed the principles of the reform-and-opening period (1978–2008) initiated by Deng Xiaoping following the Cultural Revolution. For Xu, these principles “reflected a minimum consensus that was understood by the entire populace for the sake of peaceful co-existence.”





Hello everyone, welcome to the special program "Internet Game" of Radio Free Asia. I am the host of the show, Xiao An.

Audience friends, recently, Professor Xu Zhangrun, a well-known liberal jurist of Tsinghua University, has been widely concerned by international public opinion because of the repression of his speech. 57-year-old Xu Zhangrun published an article in July last year, listing various signs of retrogression in Chinese society, such as revising the constitution and canceling the term of office of the supreme leader. On March 25 this year, the news that Xu Zhangrun was withdrawn from all positions by Tsinghua University and suspended for investigation was spread overseas. Tsinghua University has set up a working group to focus on investigating his articles published after July 2018, which is widely reported by overseas media in recent days.
