Part of China’s success in suppressing its Coronavirus/Covid 19 outbreak was due to decisive government action, but as important was the high level of public compliance with government restrictions.
Martha Franks, who teaches the humanities at St John’s College in Santa Fe spent 2 years teaching with her husband Grant at an elite Beijing high school.
The only compliance she demanded was – students, think for yourselves. Shock therapy! Her book is called Books without Borders: Homer, Aeschylus, Galileo, Melville and Madison Go to China.
