Yeah , for that to happen we had H1N1, SARS and now COVID-19. All made in china
2020-07-17 21:57
Wow its like Europeans also killed millions of natives with disease
2020-07-17 22:11
wow you are really so American
2020-07-17 22:14

Panamá is not that poor, maybe you want to check that one out mr "nordic superiority"
2020-07-20 10:48
you do realize that when the European explorers came to the new world the natives weren't immune to the viruses the Europeans had on them since that was their first ever encounter that's why they died, not like the Chinese who made the virus by eating fucking bats.
2020-07-18 00:46
Just because you wrote a paragraph explaining both sides doesn't mean you even said anything to counter his argument. You never actually explained why one is worse than the other.
2020-07-18 01:23
the europeans didnt create a virus, the chinese did there you go
2020-07-18 01:26
No viruses are "created" by people naturally, but I'll let you pass on that one. In both scenarios, native viruses are transferred to non-native populations via trade/travel/conquest. This is a bad take. Especially considering the European viruses were way more deadly than COVID.
2020-07-18 01:31
2020-07-18 01:42
The problem is you're assuming the source is bats based on some rumor, which may be factually incorrect. And that's just the surface level problem with your argument.
2020-07-18 01:44
well of course we don't know but what else is wrong with my argument? :) you can't say its wrong because there was absolutely nothing we could've prevented of the natives dying but coronavirus we could have try to tell me how we could have prevented it if so
2020-07-18 01:46
Well considering there are many cases of European settlers intentionally transmitting diseases to natives, your argument falls apart. South Park even made a parody episode on this. You clearly don't have all the facts. I learned all this in history class.
2020-07-18 01:48
"You clearly don't have all the facts. I learned all this in history class" sounds like a sentence an autist would've put together. many of the settlers didn't even realize skin to skin with the natives meant death, and they probably would've died with later encounters. and it wasnt untill the late 19th century until people starting understanding how infections worked and by then they were mostly wiped out.
2020-07-18 01:56
You clearly don't understand the sentences meaning and don't have a lot of common sense. I've been educated on this in school and have done my own research, you clearly have not. Europeans intentionally spreading diseases is a known fact. Literally use google and see, but you probably did and saw I was right. Nothing about your incorrect ramblings on human knowledge on diseases changes a historical fact. You're insulting my intelligence, but sitting here continuing to argue after a known fact has already disproved your terrible argument.
2020-07-18 01:59
wow bro your basically calling me an idiot and telling me how wrong I am and how educated you are but since that Europeans have been intentionally spreading viruses can you give me a good source where there was a lot of intentionally spreading of viruses because all of the sources said "quite few cases"
2020-07-18 02:05
Lmao even you're admitting it happened. And even if it was just a few KNOWN cases, the spread is still more intentional than COVID. But, it's time for you to start doing some explaining. There's no known source for COVID, so how are you so sure it was preventable as opposed to European to native transmission supposedly was?
2020-07-18 02:11
still didnt send me a single source
2020-07-18 12:40
You looked it up yourself and admitted it. You're asking for a source AFTER you looked it up and found the info yourself??? lol wtf dude. Just take the L and move on.
2020-07-18 14:08
I never admitted anything but okay dumbass
2020-07-18 19:42
"all of the sources said "quite few cases"" You're dumb dude lmao, you literally said all the sources say quite few cases. I know you're salty, but saying left is right doesn't make it true. You said what you said, own up to it.
2020-07-18 19:44
okay can you send me one then? please i would love to see one and there is no good source on it
2020-07-18 19:45
Why would I have to? You said yourself the sources say quite few cases. Unless you were lying like the rest of your BS argument and you never looked at any sources. hmmm... But, I'll be nice and give you a source even though you're a liar: historynet.com/smallpox-in-the-blankets...
2020-07-18 19:49
are you like a 40 year old virgin on the internet who calls people liars and my arguements bs because you clearly dont know what your talking about or are you just a guy who sits on the internet and never went outside. And also your source said "white Europeans and white Americans deliberately promoting the spread of smallpox among unsuspecting American Indians to clear them off the land." that doesnt mean that they were spreading it intentionally, it means that they actually wanted them dead and of the land they owned and also the case with Ecuyer is also quite recent if you think about it, 1837 and these cases were rare thats why you could only find this one source when we actually kinda knew how infections worked, and this was way after most of the native population died, but of course your always gonna have a dumbass whos gonna do this, same with coronavirus there is people who are spreading it on purpose but you are hating on us europeans because we were the one actually stood behind the colonization of america
2020-07-18 20:02
Jesus Christ are you mentally ill? "that doesnt mean that they were spreading it intentionally, it means that they actually wanted them dead and of the land they owned" This is a literal Chewbacca argument, the two things you wrote aren't mutually exlusive. Just accept you lost an internet argument and move on. Do you even read the BS you're writing. "white Europeans and white Americans deliberately promoting the spread of smallpox among unsuspecting American Indians to clear them off the land." I think the account and meaning is very clear. You're absolutely pathetic. Writing long paragraphs saying left is right and up is down doesn't make it right.
2020-07-18 23:38
stop fighting him, clearly delusional ahmed who wont lisen to anything
2020-07-19 15:56
and even typing in an argument "your argument falls apart." is just bruh
2020-07-18 01:57
When you've been disproven, just start arguing about word choice and sentence structure. lmao.

Imagine holding todays China to the same standard of 1600s Europe.
2020-07-19 14:07
Well I'm not, that's what the other guy is doing. I'm saying they're both different cases.
2020-07-19 15:14
of course man, the virus just happened to originate from a province that has a known virology lab. Total coincidence!!!!!!
2020-08-06 03:39
Lmao. Major urban centers both having large research institutions and being susceptible to spreading disease is a coincidence? No that's a symptom of having a large population.
2020-08-06 04:26
Not about spreading disease though is it, it's the first cases of a disease. China has admitted itself the virus was first seen in the Wuhan region. Wuhan region that has a virology lab and you don't find that suspicious at all? Are all Chinese brainwashed or something? You can find something suspicious and not betray your country....
2020-08-06 16:33
Yes, everyone who disagrees with you on anything about China is automatically from China. Excellent logic there dude. And you seemed to ignore the part where I mentioned most metropolitan areas have large research facilities. And diseases are more likely to start and spread in large, crowded cities. It may be from a lab, who knows? Do you have any evidence except for opinions based on flawed logic? Doesn't look like it.
2020-08-06 17:27
I mean anyone who is willing to defend a country that is committing atrocities currently and has 0 respect for any person or culture group other than themselves is quite clearly part of this culture group or they are deluded. I only stated that it was weird how the virus is first seen in the exact same place china has a virology lab. VIROLOGY, a lab that specialises in viruses. Legit you cannot see that as a coincidence... Do you have any evidence to prove that it did not originate from Wuhan where there is a virology lab? Do you have any evidence that it was not accidentally released due to neglect? Doesn't look like it, typical bot account....
2020-08-06 17:33
I'm not defending anything. Your entire argument strategy is based on baseless strawmans and other useless insults. Or you actually believe what you're saying, which is even more sad. You also don't understand how burden of evidence works. Saying it probably originated in a virology lab is a claim which you need substantiate with evidence. I'm saying no one knows where it came from because there's no evidence on either side to substantiate anything. Scientists from all over the world have also stated there is no evidence for COVID originating in a lab months ago. No one agrees with you dude whose opinion actually matters at least.
2020-08-06 17:41
What insults have I said? I never said it originated in a virology lab, I said it's weird how a virus was first discovered in the exact same province as this lab. It's suspicious which is what I have been saying this entire time if you could step away from your brainwashing... What I am saying doesn't really need a disagree / agree, it's legit an observation that everyone can see. It's very suspicious that a virus started in a province with a virology lab. Not wasting my time any more with a bot account. go spread your communist, anti-Human-Rights propaganda elsewhere.
2020-08-06 17:45
I consider calling people bots an insult. I think most people other than you do too. I'm not saying anything. It can be from a lab, who knows? It's a distinct possibility, but there's no actual evidence to back that up. That's what I've been saying, but you insist on arguing about what's a very logical fact based conclusion supported by the scientific community. You're calling me a bot for believing in the scientifically recognized, accepted conclusion on this issue. That's incredibly ridiculous.
2020-08-06 17:52
one is negligence the other is feigned ignorance to save some small money in exchange for fucking over the rest of the world
2020-07-18 02:16
It's not like the Europeans cared if they were spreading disease. In fact they actively took advantage of it, look at how Hernan Cortes conquered the Aztecs.
2020-07-18 02:18
well, even then we're not comparing the diseased dicks of the euros vs the chinese. the main point is that it's literally 2020 (lel) and they're still fucking around with bat gumbo
2020-07-18 02:19
Yeah, I agree they should invest more in food safety and shut down their live animal markets.
2020-07-18 02:20
it's not really the bat itself that get eaten the problem, if bred keeping the animal safe for humans i don't get why they shouldn't eat it.
2020-07-18 02:34
Yes, but those viruses much have originated from somewhere, yes? AKA Europe lmao
2020-07-18 01:35
so how do you think the europeans should've approched the natives? just stand away from them and not touch them even though they didn't know that they were carrying viruses that they were not immune to? there was nothing that was gonna save them, but coronavirus is something we could've prevented by not eating animals that we know have a lot of viruses and are not fucking normal to eat

i might be wrong but wasn't pathology quite recent during that time compared to now where we know much more than then?
2020-07-18 04:30
Keep eating bats so you learn more
2020-07-18 13:09
why can't the bats be eaten? Human has the rights to eat everything. The H1N1 is from schweinfleisch, so fking stop to eat it.
2020-07-19 13:40
Europeans made those viruses by sleeping with pigs, goats etc.
2020-07-19 16:38
They could just implement a lockdown wtf

2020-07-17 23:01
Do you like Covid-19 ? That is coming from China, not my fault i speak the truth, it is what it is. How im racist/xenophobic because i stated the truth and only that ?
2020-07-18 00:29
H1n1 was from North America tho, get urself educated

How hard is it to understrand that discovered and created are not the same thing?
2020-07-18 02:13
same with China LMAO
2020-07-18 12:19
I wonder why China wont let any outsider come in and investigate where Covid is coming from and how it spread. Every other country that had similar situations let the international community get involved but not China. They afraid of something or what ?
2020-07-18 13:08
The truth is China reject the investigation request from US and Australia, and agreed the investigation under WHO authorization. US can be a part of that but they withdraw the organization.
2020-07-19 00:20
Under WHO who they have the most influence .. ehmm. I could understand why they wouldnt want US with all the latest issues between them but Australia ? Ehm.. Also i heard France wanted to do something down there also and denied.
2020-07-19 01:10
That statement was released with a lot of other countries. Anyway, a lot of countries have found covid exist in wastewater samples from early 2019. It might exist already long before we discover it.
2020-07-20 00:17
So why to deny investigation there if theres nothing to be afraid of ?
2020-07-20 02:39
They did not reject the investigation from WHO, which most of the countries support, which US choose to quit. They reject US request of sending people by US. Why would a independent country allow other independent country to investigate themselves? Does US allow any country sending people to their land and investigate their affairs? When there are rumors about US military labs, did US allow investigation from other countries to clear themselves? I don't mean the rumors are real, I don't quite believe either. This should be the problem about how countries deal things with each other. US should not be more suprior than other countries.
2020-07-21 20:21
covid is made by us u mongoloid
2020-07-18 19:44
What are you smoking ! I want some too !
2020-07-18 20:13
prove me that it was made by china being released in china doesn't mean that Chinese gov made it
2020-07-19 16:10
Let Australia and France do a research down there to find who, where and when and ill prove it to you. Not letting anyone do any investigation about how virus started there , who was the zero patient, what really happened means something you hiding isnt mongoloid ? You dont want truth to come out, thats all. Prove me otherwise now.
2020-07-19 16:14
yeah france aka EU and USA cocsucker will make a fair research xaxaxaxa
2020-07-19 16:53
What about Australia then ?! Is Australia EU or USA ? I understand why to afraid of USA but France has nothing to do with USA you mongoloid. You know pretty well this is china made similar to SARS. When SARS first found in china ( again ) it was EU mainly who helped with that and did a major research about SARS. But now is enemy ha ? Propaganda at its finest HLTV version You got headshoted already , move on Asian player. You better focus on viruses.
2020-07-19 20:20

because it can be both? their economic system is state capitalism.. but capitalism is just that - an economic system.. Capitalism doesn't dictate/create your politics

State capitalism is an economic system in which the state undertakes business and commercial economic activity (i.e. for-profit) and where the means of production are organized and managed as state-owned enterprises (including the processes of capital accumulation, centralized management and wage labor), or where there is otherwise a dominance of corporatized government agencies (agencies organized along business-management practices) or of public companies such as publicly listed corporations in which the state has controlling shares they already basically have that since the late 70s in China but it's just economy, everything else can be full blown communist

Authoritarian capitalism is a whole lot different from free capitalism in the western countries my friend. Read "Capitalism and Freedom" by Milton Friedman for more info on free capitalism. and Authoritarian Capitalism: Sovereign Wealth Funds and State-Owned Enterprises in East Asia and Beyond (Business and Public Policy) for Authoritarian capitalism
2020-07-17 22:14

2020-07-17 22:19

2020-07-17 22:19
Communism entirely would never work because equality of outcome will lead to chaos in the long term, hey that's human nature. A Palatable blend of communism and capitalism in the most realistic way would be the way to go but most people oppose this ideology, so might as well stick to capitalism and feed the evergrowing economic machine ya fucking lazy cunts.

Ty for a youtube video lol. No wonder one of the main people's goal in life is increase their conditions they live in and I don't see anything wrong with that.
2020-07-17 22:49
I agree, but the core reason for why people desire to live in better conditions is Happiness, Happiness is a fucking deeply complicated word, you could make a statement like due to capitalistic normality that exists in our world we have unconscious reasons to why we want a better standard of living. However, if the desire for capital didn't exist there is definitely a psychological case you could make where the reason to increase the living conditions of a person wouldn't exist in the first place.
2020-07-17 22:55
Karl Marx said communism is achievable when human has infinite resource. The real problem is our resource is limited and every country every people are fighting for limited resource. Maybe someday when people can control nuclear fusion then we can see a communism society.

the human "resource" wouldn't be infinite though there will still be inferior and superior individuals, some will still be more productive also a system like that inevitably leads to authoritarianism and dictatorships when the government has too much power someone always seizes it
2020-07-18 08:38
Well, whether human can find a infinite resource is a science question. Before that, communism is not realistic.
2020-07-19 00:17
Well.. Nobody really built a communism country before. Soviet Union was a trial, but failed. Communism doesnt have be like Soviet Union. Obviously China chose another way instead of following USSR.

yes, that's why i said reverse of it. it was the people and the culture that brought down what those countries had already achieved. also, yes... culture and people does count for a lot, but it could not be done with a little authoritarism on the side. tolerance paradox at it's purest form

no one is acting like that. but they "just" provided the means for people who already wanted that. i am not against religion, but if there's someone to be blamed it would be those extremists that agreed to be the workforce and scapegoat for it - they got what they wanted.

I do not like the products that are coming from China and that is for sure. However, China is a powerful country with extremely smart individuals. I watched a documentary about How China got so big.. well, it is not a surprise when I listen to the people who are educated there.

Scientists should be revered, paid an extremely high wage, and be given a lot of social status. That's the only way America can stay ahead in technology. This dogshit education system with a good immigration system isn't a long term solution.
2020-07-18 01:55
the education system in US is a shithole, like in brazil. RIP
2020-07-18 02:34
American education system is fantastic Quality sucks ass Look at the educational quality in india china and korea Especially india But they're system sucks ass then. Guess you just can't keep both of these together
2020-07-19 13:30
I guess the framework of the education is good, it's the actual teaching that's the awful part. But, the actual teaching is the hard part to fix.
2020-07-19 15:13
Exactly!
2020-07-19 18:16
Don’t you have to pay hundreds of thousands to get a good college degree? Education should be free, so your system sucks.

2020-07-17 22:32
You should know that’s likely not correct.something you seen from the media probably were chinese propaganda.in my point of view, most of Chinese are nerdy coots.Most of them can’t even think individually.And in China, those who are truly smart or have enormous influence in some areas need to chose the sides whether you stand for ccp or not. If you’re the person who don’t like ccp then it’s done for you because you can’t earn money with your smart in china.There are only 4% of Chinese who once had their university course btw.

2020-07-17 23:14
what's funny? It's a fact, Taiwan took a lot of cultural artifacts and there's video proof of the PRC destroying THOUSANDS of artifacts imagine being so retarded that you destroy your cultural heritage, braindeads
2020-07-18 00:49
ahahahah you really retard How we can do both at same time... Taiwan = China so idk wtf are u even talking about.
2020-07-18 01:02

2020-07-20 02:06
Taiwan =/= China. The difference is that the Taiwanese have the '5 thousand years of history' that the CCP claims their country has, and the PRC has 70. The great leap backward and cultural revolution made the country it is today: a brutal regime that has complete control over its citizens, backed up by a purely superficial and shallow semblance of culture. Nt wumao.
2020-07-19 15:53
nt they pay me a lot more
2020-07-20 02:02
cultural heritage doesnt really mean anything theres a lot to hate the PRC for, but destroying cultural artifacts is far from the top of that list
2020-07-18 01:16
>cultural heritage doesnt really mean anything Commie detected, anyone who cares about their culture would think it's a big deal, obviously it's not on top of a list, but i'm saying they are retards because their only argument for destroying them was "cus revolution"
2020-07-18 02:17
Yea, a lot of artifacts were destroyed. This happened during my grandparents generation, and even as a relatively high ranking official, they weren't able to keep artifacts at home. Was worse off for my dads side of the family as they were just farmers. Getting caught owning artifacts would result in a fine. (From what I'm by my grandparents) (this was before though, now no one cares but rip history and culture) Really stupid imo. But you can't really call Taiwan their own country, I guess you could call them both china in a way. Cause wherever a new dynasty started (in chinese history) it always involved revolutions etc, but they will he considered the new "china" and not the few survivors of the royal family who fled.
2020-08-06 03:12
The British industrial revolution was way more impressive. from the invention of machine parts to full on industry in a matter of decades More impressive than China going from a shithole to a shithole with a couple nice cities ruined by an authoritarian regime and the purging of millions of innocent people in land grabs by the government. Plsu that most of their building is literally cuz of the buillding bubble they've created
2020-07-17 22:57
that's why europe was in a good spot in the last 300 years, the industrial revolution put europe in advantage compared to the rest of the world, but china today is leading in almost all technological fields, it just a matter of time till they have total supremacy.
2020-07-17 22:57
lol china is in no way the leader in technological fields they still have to do massive industrial espionage and even then most products they produce arent even close to western/japanese/korean ones
2020-07-17 23:07

2020-07-18 09:18
A couple of nice cities, lol u are pretty uninformed
2020-07-18 13:05
No you are, the vast majority of China was built by the communist leadership and is rotting away because it was not built to last and no one takes care of their property because they do not own it, you can find multiple videos of people going on massive journeys through China and there are just rotting buildings with people living in them as permanent residence. Aristotle is completely right with his quote about things held in common.
2020-07-18 13:16
Ahhh look I learned all my information from YouTube lmao, enough said. I’ve been to China multiples times in last two decades, tbh I didn’t expect they were able to develop this fast. In 2001 they were far behind most Eu, NA cities.. however when I went back in 2012, 2018 , legitimate makes cities like London, La, Nyc looks extremely undeveloped. You do know youtube is not a valid source? Also wtf are u on about about communism leadership on buildings? China have by far the largest private real estate industry. Probably the most profitable as well
2020-07-18 14:04

"The Great Leap Forward (Second Five Year Plan) of the People's Republic of China (PRC) was an economic and social campaign led by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from 1958 to 1962" "The Great Leap resulted in tens of millions of deaths,[1] with estimates ranging between 18 million and 45 million deaths" Yeah, China was great in the 50s.
2020-07-17 23:41
my point was to show how much they evolved....
2020-07-17 23:52
sure, they evolved. to what exactly? a police state where people are put in concentration camps for wrongthink and being the 'wrong' religion, terrible environmental protection laws and healthcare, corruption and CCP-favoritism everywhere.. not to mention how they disregard everyone else and try to occupy territories, pressure smaller autonomous regions to give in to them, and blatantly lie to the entire world on basically everything..
2020-07-19 04:25
dude, yes all those things u said are happening, but my point is, china evolved like never seen in history
2020-07-19 06:59

2020-07-18 13:28
ever heard of the weimar republic and hitler? ever heard of the soviet boom post red october? it's easy when you have totalitarian control to redirect labor towards more efficient goals. for example disown all private ground and force farmers to work in centrally planned camps = more efficient labor = economic growth. you should really read the book: why nations fail. it's exactly about these kind of topics. it is predicted in this book that china's growth is not sustainable because any growth or invention that threatens the position of the established elites will not be allowed. for example thomas edison with his lightbulbs bankrupted the candle factories. if in this example in china the candle factories were the economic elites backed by the party, edison would have been liquidated. there is a reason china like to steal so much technology. this way it can pick and choose which tech it wants and which is forbids.

The fallacy of your theory is that the oligarchy of China resides only on some essential industries like resources. The rest of the businesses in the society are yet vibrant in a free market, which means the path of innovation by common people is never blocked by powerful entrepreneurs or politicians. I agree that the stealing of Western technique is an issue but for nonsense can China's technology prosper by solely stealing from others.

I'm curious whether there will develop a strong middle class in china who also will have political influence. I presume the internet is heavily controlled by the government because it potentially would enable the middle class too hard to organize and exchange freely in political idea's. there are top companies who are private as you say but I have heard from multiple sources that those parties still retain some allegiance to the party and most often top members of those companies are a member of the party. but I am just a civilian not a political genius so we'll have to see what happens in the future.

where do you live if i may ask? from what I understand, even municipal governments all are CCP friendly, it's not like there's a central government - state seperation in China... the point is, whether you would like to admit it or not, the lack of basic human rights, opportunities to live a healthy and meaningful life, and a constant pressure to adhere to gov policies and simply be a cog in the machine is pretty fucking bad.

Wuxi, a city of Jiangsu province. The economic condition has direct effect on the political environment of any city in China. The richer area is usually granted with more freedom and opportunity because the local government is able to satisfy its budget by taxing, which leads to less corruption and higher efficiency. The human right problem is complained a lot in China as well. I could only say that we are actually as (legally) free as most Western people that I've met. The biggest drawback is on the cultural part. The censorship limits most of our choices on ways to express ourselves. The political freedom for me is not so much an issue, some events recently have warned us how things could go if every single person has a chance to engage in politics...
2020-07-19 04:51
you see, i don't doubt rich and obidient people live well in China. my problem is that there is 0 freedom of expression, as you can literally get arrested in less than a day for saying anything CCP doesn't like. developed nations don't have censorship and obviously provide freedom of expression/thought, you don't always have to agree with the 'government' or people in power to prosper and succeed. it doesn't only limit your political freedoms, but your freedom of thought, period. thus it is unsurprising that china's largest tech company is literally based on straight up intellectual property theft from larger tech companies from US, S. Korea etc. finally, to be rich in China, you need to be a tool of the state 100% of the time, meaning that you have to do whatever you're told, and as i've previously said become a cog in the machine, losing your individualism in return for 'wealth'... what is wealth when you can't freely express yourself? when you have to look behind your back anytime you're doing something the CCP deems bad? and don't even get me started on prisoner organ harvesting, Uighur concentration camps, terrible healthcare systems, no environmental regulations whatsoever, and bullying of smaller countries for territorial gains...
