New on the site this time:
An anonymous blog post by a young Shanghai woman that went viral in China (at least 1.7 million views) recounting, with bemused exasperation, her experiences in a quarantine center, in a hotel where “close contacts” were forced to isolate, and many misadventures in between. It is well worth a read, and if you want to know what “Schrödinger's lung” refers to, you’ll need to click through.
In addition, three more entries from Qin Hui’s chronicles of the Russian war in Ukraine, in which he continues to warn of the dangers of appeasement:
Number Five: “Will the Bucha Massacre Put an End to Appeasement?”
Number Six: “Appeasement and Collective Security”
Number Seven: “Appeasement after World War II: Solzhenitsyn's Question”
