    I don’t think most people (those who don’t know) would care if they were Muslins or not. Given the political climate I do believe it being China doing it adds flames to the fire.

    As a specific request no, but as part of the broader Miss America answer it would, for the compassionate:

    1. End world hunger
    2. Health care for all
    3. Equal rights for all

    It fits in #3, and some would see #3 higher than I've listed.

    Equal rights may take care of the other two. Or at least greatly address them.

    There's a whole lot I can care about and not be able to make much difference about. I think what it happening to the Uyghurs is horrible, the same I think the same about the Muslim groups in Africa kidnapping and killing Christian groups in Africa. Throw in any other group that you want, I will call it grotesque.

    That said, there's not a ton I can do about it other than watch where I buy is from and what I invest in does and encourage others to do the same. I doubt I can call up President Xi and he'll take my call.

    I never said we shouldn't criticize, I said there's a lot of stuff we [itch bay] about that only comes from not having to worry about much. A lot of people create reasons to complain.

    If there are five criticisms, and all are deemed "created" due to us having too little to worry about, and believing we shouldn't create these complaints, then all those criticisms go away.

    That's practically the same as saying don't criticize--the pool of criticism is reduced, if not fully emptied.

    Hard to say, as they are resource problems. If there is always enough to go around, then yea. If not, then everyone just equally starves.

    There is definitely enough food to go around. Healthcare equally shared is not dependent on supply directly. If the distributed healthcare is insufficient, there is a shared motivation to increase the supply which otherwise would not exist if the most influential/powerful are insulated from that insufficiency as they are now.

    I don't think you want to snap your fingers and have more medical practitioners. Not yet.

    And food is still a resource. We can give it out, and should, but we need to also address our animal need to procreate.

    Human population may peak in the 2060's.

    Not a total shocker. Disney/ESPN have no desire to rock the boat with Xi's government. However there are sadly plenty of people like JA who moralize on behalf of China's system of government by equating events like George Floyd to the Chinese government crushing political dissent and disappearing protestors. But that's also the beauty of the 1A and shows why America has a superior system of government to China.
