Episode 924: Stuck In China's Panopticon

I’m not a person who thinks #Islam should be given respect, but I do think people should no matter what.
What a minute ... as far as I know, the PRC isn't attacking the Uighur's personhood, just their adherence to their chosen "religion" (i.e. the reported "re-education camps", shaving beards, unveiling of women, prohibition of Arabic script, forced pork and alcohol consumption based on religious conviction, etc.). It seems to me that the people are still being allowed their due "respect". So isn't "Islam" being disrespected here, and not the people, which is consistent with your own convictions?
What I got from listening to it was that the government of China was using DNA research to find unique markers that would define the Uighur people as differentiable from the rest of the "real" Chinese people. It doesn't seem that religion is the problem, but the "otherness" of the people who happen to all be born into the religion of Islam.

The pattern is also similar to US internment of the Japanese and the German pre-WWII concentration camps for Jews. It wasn't the way the Jews prayed that bothered the Germans, it was the existence of a differentiable people that they deemed "less than". I think the US internment was more about stealing the property of the Japanese-Americans than it was about war.

Also, this may not be obvious but I use the word respect in a mathematical way. The variable that gets respect in a formula is the one that controls the outcome. I don't respect it doesn't mean I seek to destroy it, it just has no power over me. The treatment of the Uighur's is abuse at the least and criminal with some certainty.

I neglected to invest time in your link; if you think that will make a difference in understanding where you are coming from, let me know. Also, how long is the recording, si vous plais.
It's 26:50 in length. I'm posting from Friendica, so you don't see it rendered correctly. Try this link?

I usually embed a player for people to play a podcast in anonymity through my post along with a link to the source.

The show is produced by the National Public Radio here and it's a Financial podcast most of the time, but this episode is off their normal material. They are really good about being human with their perspective, aka: not greed-driven.

Not that people need another thing to #Worry about, but this podcast discusses another thing to worry about. If you like to have more information to bolster your discussions about #ClimateChange and how #Urgent it is, this show has plenty of new facts in a different vector of the subject.

Good post. I understand you to be correct in that population is the largest driver worldwide in GDP. These arguments also leave out the very important fact that there is also a "quality" of the GDP pie. To get the fastest growing GDP pie you use wasteful methods and offload costs as much as possible. Working at increasing the quality of the pie can also create happiness. This would be such things as closed cycle production and minimal offloading of costs, etc. Not a larger pie, but a higher quality pie I believe would cause the most "Happiness" (not sure what to call it).
So true that quality is a better way to live! However, as it's measured, I don't think cheaper inputs to a product or service change the GDP. To avoid double counting they won't measure components made to become part of a final product that a consumer buys; they just measure the price the final product sells at. But, if cheaper inputs lower the final products price they will sell more units and thus raise the total GDP. Is that what you meant?


The theorybiz article has many of the items that I was thinking of, especially the increasing #scarcity. For example, the topsoil in the #USA is being depleted and is a positive in the GDP figures. Increasing the farming quality so that we have no net loss of topsoil should lead to the best possible results in whatever measure is used.

There's no stealing in the free SW world, it's okay to do. Let's rather address what's wrong about their ideology.
I knew that but it felt right in spirit. Like when Microsoft stole Linux to prop up their OS.

While I am not a Biden fan, applying purity tests is what Putin had the far left do like the far right in order to elect Trump. If we truly want to take this country back from Putin, we have to stop doing his bidding. I will likely support someone other than Biden but I won't be applying purity tests to campaign by slamming other Dems.

Trump getting closer to the cliff?

In the 1980s all kinds of reputable news companies began to cover the Trump debacle. This podcast reminds me of that. He was always as bad as he is now. His only superpower is to throw chaff and flares in his wake to avoid the takedown.
