The Russiagate narrative has collapsed but its consequences are still with us

This article was originally published in German on Nachdenkseiten.de The very name “Russiagate”, a combination of Russia and the Watergate affair, which forced US President Nixon to resign in 1974, is emotionally charged. The establishment of the Democratic Party has been using this systematically for years to insinuate large-scale Russian influence in US politics. In […]

The left and immigration: how leftists underpin a system they purport to hate

The problem with immigration is driven by global inequality, desperation, neoliberal desire for cheap labour and not by your deluded sense of international solidarity. Most people that subscribe to some leftist world vision in the West will gladly stand in support with immigrants. This as if it were an act of international leftist solidarity, perfectly […]

Don’t think they won’t do the same to you

People infected with political hysteria become irreconcilable, stubborn enemies of their country, because directly or indirectly they begin to work for the triumph of the plans of the West, which, without hiding, removes competitors by economic, political methods, or even “color revolutions”. The Earth, it turns out, is small, if we talk about global markets, […]

Can Eastern Europe rescue European culture?

In the most prosperous and traditionally most influential European countries, such as France, Germany and England, the political and cultural conversation today seems to have become entirely dominated by immigration issues, equal opportunities between the (multiple) sexes and the protection of sexual minorities.

德国媒体:“中国正躺在世界的面前”

本文是使用自动翻译器翻译的。 如有任何错误,敬请原谅 “在中国最成功的成就中,我们数瓷,纸和作弊”。因此,今天开始出现在德国顶级发行报纸《 Bild》上的一篇文章。文章的作者克里斯蒂安·斯滕泽尔继续说道:“距耶稣基督500年前,传奇的中国将军孙子曾称赞作弊是成功的策略。” “自那时以来,世界在与中国打交道方面并没有变得更加聪明。反之。电晕流行病的爆发以最痛苦的方式向我们展示:微笑的国度在于我们脸上的微笑。一遍又一遍”。 作者指责中国政府掩盖了新形式的冠状病毒的爆发,据一些消息来源称,这种新形式的冠状病毒已经在11月发生。这种说法在过去几周中经常发生,并与2003年的事件相呼应。2003年的事件是,中国被指控对SARS疫情不透明,这是一种急性呼吸道疾病,约有8000人死亡,774人死亡。 面对去年12月异常肺炎病例迅速增加的情况,中国于12月31日向世界卫生组织通报了新的病毒流行情况。这与中国医生意识到他们仅在治疗一种新型疾病的报道相符。在十二月下旬。尽管世卫组织这次赞扬了中国为应对冠状病毒而做出的努力,但西方许多人仍对中国应对危机感到担忧。 人们常常回想起中国医生李文亮的悲惨故事,他最初试图传播有关这种新疾病的新闻。然而,为了维护中国政府的公义,在李文亮对类似于WhatsApp 的中文消息传递应用程序微信发出警告的第二天,中国就向世卫组织通报了新的冠状病毒。 此外,中国还被指控淡化了这一流行病的流行程度,通过统计数字来掩盖真实的感染人数。但是注册的案件数量始终取决于所进行的特定测试的数量,并且在危机开始时,鉴于威胁的新性质,测试的数量非常有限。 在80%的人群中,冠状病毒感染会引起与普通感冒或流感无明显差异的症状。不仅在中国,甚至在德国,今天的欧洲或美国,也没有对所有表现出诸如咳嗽,喉咙发酸,发烧或四肢酸痛等症状的人进行冠状病毒测试。 这种测试非常昂贵且需要时间,并且由于紧急情况的紧急性质以及医疗服务面临的艰难决策,因此无法确定确切的感染人数,不仅在独裁的中国,甚至在模型中也是如此。欧美的“开放社会”。就人权而言,共产主义中国可能不是一个理想的例子,但这并不意味着可以利用一切机会,甚至是最近的灾难来抹黑她的政府。 更糟糕的是,中国的冠状病毒不幸不应该被当作沉迷种族刻板印象的机会。“笑中国话”是这种陈规定型观念中最疯狂的形式之一。如今,德国喜欢将自己塑造成一个宽容,国际化的国家,向不同的人和文化开放。但是,如这个最新的例子所示,肤浅的愉悦感和真实的思想和感受之间仍然存在巨大的差距。也许有一天有人会写关于微笑的德国人以及他们关于宽容和共同的欧洲价值观的空洞的口头禅。
