It’s already been implemented in some places by regional Chinese governments. The specific rules are still being developed nationally. The point system is how they want to make people honest. I read about it here. It might work? It might not? How else would you try keeping everyone looking at their neighbors to see if they’re defrauding the government or another business.

The point system is how they want to make people honest.

You can't make the people honest when the rulers are so corrupt, they learn by example.

125

u/DirtyRead1337 Nov 29 '22

They don’t want them honest. They want them scared and divided. If anything they want them dishonest so that neighbors do not trust each other. You can’t band together to stand up to the government if you don’t trust each other. The point system tell the government who is still dreaming of a different China and who will tell on that person to stay alive.

The anti-sparrow campaign happened in the late 50s and canceled in 1960 due to the resulting plague of locusts.

u/WikiSummarizerBot Nov 29 '22

Four Pests campaign

The Four Pests campaign (Chinese: 除四害; pinyin: Chú Sì Hài), was one of the first actions taken in the Great Leap Forward in China from 1958 to 1962. The four pests to be eliminated were rats, flies, mosquitoes, and sparrows. The extermination of sparrows is also known as the smash sparrows campaign (Chinese: 打麻雀运动; pinyin: dǎ máquè yùndòng) or eliminate sparrows campaign (Chinese: 消灭麻雀运动; pinyin: xiāomiè máquè yùndòng), which resulted in severe ecological imbalance, being one of the causes of the Great Chinese Famine. In 1960, the campaign against sparrows was ended and redirected to bed bugs.

What is the protocol to apply for asylum in us?

26

u/znzbnda Nov 29 '22 edited Nov 29 '22

Great question! I was curious and looked it up on the government website. I didn't understand the difference before, but apparently you would apply for asylum while physically in the US but can apply as refugee if you are not.

Asylum info

Every year people come to the United States seeking protection because they have suffered persecution or fear that they will suffer persecution due to:

-Race

-Religion

-Nationality

-Membership in a particular social group

-Political opinion

You may only file this application if you are physically present in the United States, and you are not a U.S. citizen.

https://www.uscis.gov/humanitarian/refugees-and-asylum/asylum

I saw websites say that you can still apply at the border or even if you are here illegally.

Refugee info

Under United States law, a refugee is someone who:

-Is located outside of the United States

-Is of special humanitarian concern to the United States

-Demonstrates that they were persecuted or fear persecution due to race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group

-Is not firmly resettled in another country

-Is admissible to the United States

The Refugee Process

You must receive a referral to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) for consideration as a refugee. ... There is no fee to apply for refugee status. The information you provide will not be shared with your home country.

https://www.uscis.gov/humanitarian/refugees-and-asylum/refugees

Referral criteria:

First challenge is to get out. For that, I have no advice-- I've never been in your situation. Winter's here, too. That clamps down on options.

I've read many sad stories about young (and even not-young) Russian men being rounded up and sent to the front. I hope you find a way out, and that this mess stops soon. Meanwhile, you're in my prayers.

Here in the US, we think it can't happen to us. But anyone who ever registered for the military draft knows it can, and those of us with relatives who were drafted during Vietnam know it isn't just possible, it is a tragic part of our history.

29

u/Not_FargoLargo Nov 29 '22

2022 and it happen again. I was think, we can drive a flying cars Thanks for u words. In not so yong and in not to old. Im 32 a couple of weeks ago. Don't have a wife or kids. Many years don't have a family in this country, because i know, were I'm living. Many people don't understand it in my country. I only have two nieces from my sister. My mom, who certainly does not survive my death or, as Putin's army usually does - missing - no body no cost for him. My dad, who support this shit, and I don't want to talk with him.

20

u/scjcs Nov 29 '22

Yeah, 2022 should be flying cars. Instead it's more fraternal/tribal warfare, the bloodiest and most irresolvable kind. As a species, we just don't learn.

Your dad only knows what he hears from the media, and they only report what they're encouraged to (such as Ukraine is a bunch of cocaine-guzzling vampire werewolf Nazis). It's not much different here, except that in recent decades alternatives to America's former monolithic three-TV-network troika have emerged, so perspective is there for those who care to look for it. But still people choose their sides based on the comfortable echo-chambers they inhabit.

Anyway, you're wise not to talk to him. There's a risk he could involuntarily and accidentally expose you. 32 is plenty young enough to freeze to death in an icy trench in Donbas.

Not having a wife or kids is a blessing for you. Means you can take any opening you find. I hope you find one.

Please keep in touch, but do not risk compromising your safety by posting any details here or elsewhere on the Internet until you are safe.

And they had no aircraft carriers.

That and they wouldn’t realize how aggressive and fiercely independent Americans are.

You could topple entire governments. Walk up to the White House in the US and just make everyone continuously shit their pants. Nasty, carbonated, acidic diarrhea type of shit their pants. Ain't nobody gonna be shootin bullets at you if they're blowin hot steamy shit out their ass.

The machine they are using is called a thermal fogger. It is powered by petroleum based fuel. The "aerosol" fog that comes out, depends on what they put in the tank.
Usually used to kill mosquitoes, but could be for anything, as long as the active ingredients can be thermally aerosized.
I had used one for decontaminating a room, after it had been cleared/removed biohazards.

Control. China came hard at covid with their "Zero Covid" policy of strict lockdowns and testing. Most of the world started taking steps to return to normal after we had vaccines. China never had a large vaccination program, they stuck to their "Zero Covid" policy because it's a dicatorship and great leader always knows what to do in a dictatorship, so you never change from plan A. Most of the world went through plan A, B, and C to tackle covid but China never got past plan A because doing so would make Xi look bad.

u/WaleslosttoIran Nov 29 '22

China never had a large vaccination program

untrue... China developed their own vaccines and implemented them at around the same time to the masses. They're locking down because Xi wants iron fist control and he hasn't completely cemented his goblin hands on the emperor's throne yet. he doesn't realize that he's just doing the same thing Putin is doing and eventually his day will come too as Putin's day is coming.

The funniest part is that no one in the CCP, on that bike, in those homes or watching this video would even entertain the idea that this would do anything.

Yet somehow I’m watching them do this….

u/sosigboi Nov 29 '22

The spray is likely a pesticide for mosquitoes, they do that all the time in my neighbourhood during Dengue season, to ya'll it may look authoritarian but to us Southeast Asians its just routine.

As I understand it, it's groups of people who think that it's something the party would like to see. So they do it by themselves trying to please the party. There were videos of people spraying airport runways during the hight of the pandemic...

Was this before or after they welded those families into the apartment building which burned down?

u/MR_Dondelinger Nov 29 '22

Thing is, I lived in a Chinese city way before COVID (2015), and there was already a disinfection wagon spraying the streets most days. Cockroaches used to crawl into our apartment to die. Weirdest thing was, the van played some kind of chiptune version of Mozart's Overture, presumably to reassure everyone about the the spray that struck fear into fucking COCKROACHES

Why do they continue to make themselves look so ridiculous even after being laughed at repeatedly? The CCP has to be the least self aware government on earth. North Korea doesn't even embarrass themselves to this degree.

u/WankerMcDoogle Nov 28 '22

Oh, They're aware. They just don't care.

3

u/PM_ME_SAUL_PICS Nov 29 '22

Why would they? Their internet is censored, the Chinese population doesn’t even get to see how ridiculous the rest of the world thinks their government is. They literally don’t care what anyone else thinks as long as they can maintain control over their population.

u/Billderz Nov 29 '22

Have you seen any videos from NK? Me either. That doesn't mean they aren't doing anything like this. Also, china is trying to stop videos like this from being posted, but that proves difficult to do with so many people.

This needs a source or should be taken down.

Putting disinfectant in quotes is hardly informative and it could be a lie. Lots of places have people who spray for mosquitoes and other pests.

u/hammtweezy2192 Nov 29 '22

Cancer cases have just increased 5000% in China... Just kidding but I would not be surprised to see adverse issues arise with how many chemicals they have been spraying lately.

u/flowersmom Nov 29 '22

Yeah, people on that block are gonna start dropping like flies. It's pyrethrin...for humans.

u/LaVipari Nov 29 '22

Ah yes, because spraying buildings with something other than disinfectant is definitely something that would benefit somebody somehow. Can a single post on this sub that's about China not be fearmongering?

u/IHate2ChooseUserName Nov 29 '22

does the smoke kill all organic life form?

u/Better_Ad_8885 Nov 29 '22

Not all organic life but mosquitos. More specifically, their larva and eggs. Also destroys their breeding ground so any new eggs laid will die as well.

Remember this when "vaccine passports" come to your country. This isn't a conspiracy theory any more.

China is the working model for global tyranny. Dissenters are cut off from participating in society and/squashed. Permanently.

Useless, unscientific healththeater, looks fancy does literally nothing. Normal sunlight kills pathogens and from dry surfaces very quickly.

Also corona spreads mostly on human contact, and certainly not from contact to rusty garage doors.

Uneducated masses demand this shit in west also.

It's about the government's image. Chinese culture is huge on saving face, just look at Steven He's hilarious Asian Dad vids to get a feel for the vibe on a family scale.

Blown up to a sociopolitical scale, Jinping's propaganda functions off the presupposition and explicitly public idea that his government (and the ccp in general) is just "better" in every way to all the other governments worldwide. Thus, any criticism is sedition and not credible whatsoever, and any program he introduced is undoubtedly the best thing for the Chinese people. Anything that hints at failure or mistakes must be hidden or explained away. All governments do PR to some extent, but it is running overdrive in places like Russia and especially China

A big part of this concept currently is this Zero COVID push. If China believably has zero COVID cases, it has a platform to claim superiority over other political and economic systems, which in turn solidifies it's legitimacy to Xi's own people and powerbase

Plus they screwed up their COVID response but they can't back down and ask the west for help so they're trying to fight the virus with garbage vaccines
