There is an old saying that the worst thing a crab can do is crawl out of the bucket. This article at HikeandSeek.com explains it in more detail and claims that the saying is a great metaphor for human group dynamics.
This week I learned that crawling out of the bucket is not the worst thing a crab can do. In my experience, the worst thing a crab can do, is not crawl back into the bucket when the opportunity presents itself and all the other crabs are assuring you that all will be forgiven.
China did this. If you think that’s racist, you’re out of your damn mind and I don’t care what you say about me.
These are uncertain times and it’s hard to tell who you can trust, but one thing is certain, you can’t trust the Chinese Communist Party.
