I do not care what most people think. I care that they have the freedom to think and express themselves. Even those ideas that may seem critical of one's own politicians, parties, governments.
I like to see such points being raised in authoritarian regimes without fear of repercussions. Like the A4 protestors did not enjoy.
As usual, in Beijing, you enjoy more Western freedom of expression than the room of maneuver your own government gives you.
So, go ahead to use Western freedom of expression against the West.
Anyways, there should be ways to seriously hold a government responsible for failures. Not lower officials, but very top ones. Because, China COVID response has proven to be mismanaged.
This should have been done more than a year ago.
