Not to worry. This is all part of the Wise and Just Olympic training regimen for the People’s Chinese Olympic Happy Joy Go Movement! China, you will recall, is the enlightened society the Man with the High IQ said he “fully understands” and “will not second-guess” when it comes to its One Child Policy of forced abortion. This same Champion of the Little Guy also gazes across the Pacific to admire the way in which this enlightened society displays all the truly “great cities” in comparison with our own regrettable resistance to the Hive Mind and the wise planners of the Collective.The trouble with westerners is their ruthless and cruel unwillingness to subject their children to the kind of state discipline necessary to make our Wise and Just Rulers look really good on the world stage. Our Wise and Just Rulers may find it necessary to… discipline us for this stubborn resistance to their Just and Wise policies. For our own good. As in the Great Cities of China.
Bonus civilizational contribution: Due to the efforts of conservative Catholic combox thinkers over the past decade, I think we can all agree that there is no real way to tell if this… oh, what shall we call it?, “enhanced training regimen”?… is torture or not. It’s all sooooo confusing. Best to just let the state have its way for the greater good and the glory of the Fatherland.
