...refuse to be slaves


n.b. The national anthem of The People’s Republic of China contains the line;

“Rise up those who refuse to be slaves”

Being brought up in England, where the national anthem, unusually, is about a person, not the nation, I have not had much time for national anthems, but the anthem of the PRC, as reported in The Guardian newspaper, has a line that I would happily sing.

It appears that the people of China have taken the words to heart. After nearly THREE YEARS of the Zero Covid policy some have had enough.

“…you may fool people for a time, you can fool part of the people all the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.”

Abraham Lincoln said that.

Enough is enough.
