Posting a link to an essay on Covid 2020 chez SZ that I wrote about a year and a half ago because I have been struck by the differences not only in approach to zero-Covid, but the overall attitude of the city during Covid 2022. Then, we were locked down, but we weren’t isolated, and the Big Whites hadn’t been mobilized for social control. What did I do? I crocheted and made imaginary worlds of string, where ‘Catzilla’ could play. Now, we are much more isolated, and I am much more actively following social management because I worry about the expansion of authoritarian policies. Anyway, if you have time for a re-read, click here to read Unmasked in Shenzhen.
