quote [ The connection between keeping one’s place and moral geography is as commonsensical in Chinese as it is in English. However, in Chinese, saying someone ‘knows their place’ (很本分) is a compliment, while in English the phrase is often used to insult a person’s lack of independence. ]
Found this an interesting (long) read about the logistics and perception of SARS and lockdowns in Chinas main export zone. Sounds like a pretty exhausting situation.
