The deal that the American elite chose to make with China has a precedent in the history of Athens and Sparta

"... impoverished American workers while enriching themselves. The one-word motto they came to live by was globalism ... freedom to structure commercial relationships and social enterprises without reference to the well-being of the particular society ..." “There is a good reason why lockdowns—quarantining those who are not sick — had never been previously employed as a public health measure. The leading members of a city, state, or nation do not imprison its own unless they mean to signal that they are imposing collective punishment on the population at large. It had never been used before as a public health measure because it is a widely recognized instrument of political repression.” A long read but well worth your time.
