"China is not a country governed by the rule of law, rules change drastically" - Dr Endres

The Institute of Race Relations John Endres sits down with BizNews founder Alec Hogg to discuss the craziness happening in Beijing as communist China looks to take control of a booming economy. The regulatory crackdown in China is predominately on Big Tech and educational companies that operate within the informational space. The Chinese communist party are afraid that these companies will create a narrative of questioning its regime, which are the reasons for the asserting of its dominance. What will happen next is anyone's guess, but Endres insists that these are not good signs for capitalist China going forward.

Covid-19 vaccination – yes or no? Dr Duncan Carmichael answers

The subject of Covid-19 vaccination has become so acutely sensitive that media publications which have published articles which simply explore its efficacy have been slammed for irresponsible journalism. Professionals from all over the world – both medical and otherwise – have understandably been drawn to the subject, with many offering their own contributions to assist the public in understanding the benefits and risks of Covid-19 vaccination. Dr Duncan Carmichael is a BizNews community member who decided to write his own article on the topic after reading a ‘disappointingly one-sided’ article about the Covid-19 vaccine rollout which asserts that we should all get vaccinated. Dr Carmichael – who is the author of Younger for Longer – addresses the very real concerns that many of us have had regarding the Covid-19 vaccine and its speedy delivery to the market. As a medical doctor, he has had to field questions from many of his patients on whether or not they should get the vaccine. While he does not believe in vaccine passports or mandatory Covid-19 vaccination, his answer to this question is yes. In this interview, Dr Carmichael discusses Covid-19 vaccination as well as alternative treatment to assist the immune system.

Cape independence resolve absolutely strengthened by July riots - Patrick Melly

In June, the possibility of Cape independence becoming a reality once day was said to depend largely on growing levels of dissatisfaction amongst the residents of the Western Cape in the state of South Africa. The deadly riots and looting that shook the country, which took place in KwaZulu-Natal and parts of Gauteng in July, certainly strengthened the resolve of those who support Cape independence. As Patrick Melly of the Greater Cape Town Civic Alliance states in his interview with BizNews founder Alec Hogg, ‘The feeling is that the riots that occurred last month are just a precursor to worse [events] that are still to come.’ When asked about the logistics of the Western Cape seceding from the rest of South Africa, Melly says that, ‘If the DA wants to maintain relevance in the Western Cape, it is going to have to start listening to the wishes of their supporters and all indications are that the bulk of their supporters at the moment are in favour of Cape independence.’
