Another Important Chinese Man Disappears.
Some thoughts about the Chinese System
Late last week, articles started coming out about China’s foreign minister Qin Gang disappearing. These kind of things are common in China, being a top Chinese Communist Party official seems to been a high stakes game. A game of not waking up on the wrong side of Xi.
Qin began his role as Chinese Foreign minister on December 30, 2022. Sadly he only lasted a few months, Qin wasn’t “gracefully” fired, he was disappeared without explanation. Not sure what happened to Qin but the Chinese government has a history of disappearing people. These guys are more skilled than David Blane. I believe that one of the most detrimental practices employed by dictators is the systematic purging of prominent and or competent individuals from their government.
