Matt Kibbe is joined by Republican congressional candidate Lily Tang Williams to talk about her experiences growing up under Chinese communism and the ways in which the United States is starting to be influenced by the same kinds of authoritarian policies. Mao Zedong’s socialist experiment resulted in 45 million deaths, but young people today have barely even heard of the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution. The lockdown policy during the coronavirus pandemic originated in China, and now the American government is openly pondering a system of vaccine passports that looks a lot like the Chinese social credit system. This is a totalitarian policy that gives the government total control over the degree to which citizens are allowed to participate in their own society.

“rule of law” = rule by force, initiated against all by an elite with political power, i.e., sovereignty for a few, at the expense of everybody else, i.e., a nobility and peasants.
No rule of law is humane because it is force over reason. Rules to live by must be chosen individually, freely, as a sovereign citizen. A sovereign elite deny the existence of a sovereign public.
