How Consistent is #MeToo?

Let's see if the #MeToo movement is consistent in response to this event. Will the US #MeToo and media properly vilify China, or sweep this under the rug? A lot may depend on the vocal response of other tennis players. Since the US is already boycotting the Olympics, the USG allow itself modest vertebrate behavior.

There can be little doubt that it happened given Peng knowing the potential response from the government.

China certainly doesn't deal with this the way the US does. The US vilifies the status quo, before evidence. China squashes the complaint against those in power. Is it possible the villains are those in power in China, but those seeking more power in the US?

    Consistency requires a foundation built on enduring principles and sound reasoning. No leftist is capable of adopting any such.

      In a world where all things are measured and valued, you are right. In a world with local minima, like ours, where people can gravitate to “easy”, you are complete wrong. The left are drug dealers, and majority are users.

        The left peddles lies and illusions. Yes, some are taken in by them. But the choice still exists not to do so. Until that choice is taken away and pure tyranny reigns, it is incorrect to say that only one of the two worlds exists.

          Not sure what you mean there. I'm just saying that although the philosophies of communism and totalitarianism wouldn't sustain where there are other more fair and efficient examples, in a world with 100% socialism/communism and totalitarina-oligarchies (like we are heading for as the US government becomes a mirror of China), it can exist with the few in power on the backs of the many with a knife at their throat. Look at China, 75 years, and the purge has been forgotten by the masses.

            What I'm saying is that the choice is always between choosing to live based on enduring principles or based on temporary ones. Leftists including communists, Marxists, socialists, feudalists, etc. all base their philosophies on the temporary principles of greed, lust for power, etc. rather than on more permanent principles such as voluntary value exchange. As a result, those societies eventually crumble and fall apart. But we can not forget that even when a nation has adopted leftist government, individual choice remains - even if it is punished.

            Is remembering the failures and catastrophes of yesterday necessary? Yes. It is part of a solid education. It demonstrates precisely why and how temporary philosophies fail and the misery they produce. I would argue that the purges in China weren't so much forgotten but suppressed; most of those who would have educated their children died and the government prohibited any other formal or journalistic reporting. Even today there are no accurate records of the individuals slain, just estimates of the total number of people. Another hallmark of leftist thought: they are not willing to admit their mistakes and learn from them.

    Like I said, 'When did the Occidental brain ever understand the Oriental brain". Orientals think and plan in Centuries. Occidentals think and plan in days.

      I'm actually of the mind that the socialists in the US are playing a long game. COVID was a recent tactic. Eliminating the military as a paragon of nationalism was a recent one, and will take a long time.

          Yes, but I think this is a Pandora's Box, not a plan. At least on the part of the US. No idea what the Chinese would do or plan. I know what they've done with human rights elsewhere. Absolutely disgusting!
