I'm calling BS on all of this. I'm just not sure what the real plan is. I discussed some of the possibilities on this segment of my show today, but I'd love to hear what everyone else thinks.
There are known knowns, known unknowns, and unknown unknowns in this world. I'm not a fan of that last one, but that's where we stand with the Covid-19 saga unfolding in China right now.

It started with the angst toward China's Zero-Covid policy that prompted rare mass protests across the authoritarian nation. When the government inexplicably dropped their restrictions and essentially went to an All-Covid policy, my assumption was they were going to teach the people a lesson by giving them what they asked for before coming back around a couple of weeks later and saying, "See, we told you freedom was overrated. We're reinstating restrictions now."
