There’s no way to say this while steering clear of politics, but it has to be said.
There is no perfect regime and perfect government, but there not all equal, either. I was born and lived my first 20 years in a country that had a dictatorship and then went through several wars and regime changes. There were atrocities, violations of human rights, genocide and ethnic cleansing, and a lot of nasty stuff like that. Even so, in all those 20 years, that country has never gotten to the level of abuse and the kind of atrocities you see from regimes like CCP or the one in North Korea.
I respectfully disagree with you when it comes to the validity of people’s concerns about empowering a government like CCP, no matter how insignificant that empowerment looks like.
I know we don’t want to discuss politics on these forums, and I agree with that, but the only way to achieve that is to avoid bringing the politics in the discussion by, for example, questioning other people’s political motivations. I don’t get to agree with @Ultraviolent a lot, but this time he did post his concerns in an entirely factual way and without involving politics or even being rude to anyone.
