Wise Words From Nicola Smith - Hiding Something Only Makes Things Worse

As per Nicola Smith in the Telegraph:

From Covid to the Chernobyl disaster to several UK hospital scandals and many more, a common self-protecting trait causes humans to conceal information in a way that often only makes situations worse.  

Unfortunately for the world, the universal fear of passing bad news up the chain was all the more acute in this case under an authoritarian system that encourages officials to withhold information for fear of reprisal. 

Tragically, this enduring lack of transparency and accountability under President Xi Jinping’s Communist regime means we may never know the cause of this deadly coronavirus in order to prevent the next.
