It has long been said that one should beware Greeks bearing gifts. And, it’s also true now that one should be at least somewhat suspicious of gifts from China. Yet, one must also not look a gift horse in the mouth. 😉
Yeah, the synergy between TikTok, China’s most broadly installed espionage tool, and COVID-19 aka The Wuhan Flu, encouraging attention-seeking, young women to make these home videos, we’ve been given plenty of gifts by China. And, while maintaining a needed level of risk awareness, we shouldn’t refuse them willy-nilly. After all, yīn huò dé fú (因禍得福).
