Public disorder in China over a govt "land grab"...

Mixed feelings on this.  Imminent Domain is the right of every govt.  Western nations do it all the time in the interests of state.

I guess the big thing is that we're seeing stressed citizens everywhere.  I've pointed to the coronavirus lockdown as being the cause of some of the stress we're seeing in the US and I have to think that the same is happening here.

For some reason authorities are so focused on what is a mild disease for the healthy (admittedly lethal for those with pre-existing conditions) that they're ignoring the mental health aspects of this thing.

Honestly I'm surprised we haven't seen even more disorder in China.  They had a much more draconian lockdown than we did so if my theory is correct we should have seen a more drastic response to it.
