Brainwashed

It goes without saying that Chinese oppression in Xinjiang is nothing short of imperialism, it also goes without saying that the Uighurs do not in any conceivable way belong to China. Unfortunately, most Chinese are brainwashed into seeing this as a question of territory and into viewing “Chinese territorial integrity” as sacrosanct. Nevertheless, while we might and should condemn China, we would do well to be aware of our own hypocritical “Weltanschauung”; a view of things that is the product of an all too subtle, beguiling, seductive manufacturing of consent that actually has us too stumbling through life totally ignorant of the crimes that are being committed in our names.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
