Something to ponder

Tuesday November 06, 2018 Published in Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Regarding Tim Tepaki's letter (November 1), stating the editor of CINews had “debunked” my letter about China's Social Credit system, if you are referencing the system's 80 per cent approval, well unsurprisingly that’s how it works Tim.


If the government listened to and read potentially everything you did (including that polling), then I'm pretty sure you'd be careful to approve too.

I'd also like to address your enthusiasm for China hacking the THAAD missile system (“Go China!”). That system is defensive, part of a Pacific-wide “umbrella” and designed to destroy incoming North Korean nuclear missiles. It protects Korea, Japan, Hawaii and most of Polynesia.

            “Go China” indeed.
