He said that it is not unlike what happened in China during Mao’s Cultural Revolution.

He makes a compelling case.

Famed Chinese Dissident: U.S. ‘Already In Authoritarian State,’ ‘Dangerous’ Wokeism Like Mao Revolution

Chinese dissident Ai Weiwei, a famed artist and activist, warned Americans during an interview that aired late last week that they are already under the control of an authoritarian state, they just don’t realize it yet.

Weiwei said that the situation in China has become “more extreme, in terms of censorship, in terms of their tolerance to dissidents.” He later added that he was not hopeful for China’s future given the direction that China is going.

Later, when asked about authoritarianism in the U.S., Weiwei said “certainly, in the United States, with today’s condition, you can easily have an authoritarian.”

“In many ways, you’re already in the authoritarian state,” he said. “You just don’t know it.”

When asked how so, he responded, “Many things happening today in U.S. can be compared to Cultural Revolution in China.”

“Like people trying to be unified in a certain political correctness,” he continued. “That is very dangerous.”

He makes a good point, doesn’t he?

  1. I am a typical American citizen, 3/4 white and 1/4 Azetec Indian (Mixtec) pronounced Meestec. I owe the black people nothing, but civility. I take offense to the idea that I owe any “black” person anything, much less feelings of guilt for the likes of George who was convicted of home invasion and pointing a gun at a pregnant woman’s belly threatening to shoot if she didn’t come up with $400, or some such figure. He had three more fake $20 in his wallet after having passed two in the store where he was arrested. He faked clausterphobia and was over-dosed with Fentanyl, from which he was dying, when the cop help him down, from the side and not the throat, and he died. Not “so he died” as holding him down that way did not strangle him. We are apparently governed by idiots.

    1. Correct on all counts. And just for laughs…I’m a typical American citizen..British German but Gramma was friendly so a lot of ancestors I’ll never know! I appear white ,have never enjoyed the help of domestic help besides my two hands and don’t owe any color people anything. I don’t owe anything to any people besides the ones I’ve harmed or neglected personally. We better get out in front of this nonsense and quick.
