China’s state-run Global Times on Sunday argued the death of Jeffrey Epstein is evidence the entire American system is fundamentally corrupt, rich criminals are treated far too well, and change is impossible because Americans only get to choose between two parties when they vote.
The latter criticism seems odd coming from a deeply paranoid single-party Communist dictatorship that constantly throws public officials of every rank in jail for corruption, but here it is, courtesy of the Global Times:
The US has developed dramatically thanks to such a system controlled by capital groups. But things are seemingly getting out of control. The widening gap between the rich and the poor is dividing the country and sharpening social contradictions.
But even if people realized this fact, what can they do? They can only oppose one administration and turn to another party backed by another capital group. The country has no alternative but to solve the problems with the existing system caused by the system itself – a vicious circle.
Just as Ryan Saavedra, a reporter at The Daily Wire, tweeted on Sunday, “Many of the people who are convinced there was a full blown government conspiracy in Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide are the same people who think the government can be trusted to own all the guns.”
Communist China never has a shortage of corruption despite waging an endless crackdown upon it, in part because it has a thoroughly opaque “justice” system with a strong preference for prosecuting corrupt officials who happen to be politically inconvenient to Communist Party strongman Xi Jinping and his inner circle.
