I have been doing some what-if thinking.

China is watching the goings on in Hong Kong and so are the commies running
the government over there.  It is getting pretty easy to envision the
Chinese people deciding that freedom of speech business would be a nice
thing to have.  Perhaps they are collectively thinking how nice it would be
if they could post anything they want on the internet and not need to worry
it might cost them their lives.

So what if... this whole virus catastrophe really is as bad as I think it is
now.  Recall what happened in 1986 when the power plant exploded in
Chernobyl and the commies tried to cover it up.  If you talk to Ukranians
who were there (I have close friends who were) and Russians, many will agree
that was the one event that really changed everything.  Ukraine just didn't
want this anymore.  The ball started rolling right then, and didn't stop
until the communist party in Russia was overthrown and replaced.

If the virus really does slay as many proles in China as I think it is going
to, those 1.4 billion proles may decide they don't want this anymore.  They
want freedom of speech, they want the right to bear arms, they want the
kinds of freedoms Americans have taken for granted since forever.  Do let us
