How would you know that, the very nature of autocracy is that people don’t have freedom to express their own opinion, if they did it would be an autocracy, perhaps military ask it’s citizens if they trusted their dictator, surprising they probably said yes. Survey null & void 👎

SCOTUS blocking of vaccine mandate 'a setback for public health': Vivek MurthyThe Supreme Court's decision to block the Biden administration's vaccine-or-test requirement for large private businesses is a 'setback for public health,' United States Surgeon Gen eral Vivek Murthy told 'This Week' co-anchor Martha Raddatz on Sunday. Raddatz reminded Murthy that before the omicron surge, he had said on 'This Week' that the mandate 'was necessary and appropriate.' 'So, what is plan B?' Raddatz pressed. Lol this is why no one cares what the surgeon general has to say Shut up and move on. The SC decided it's unconstiutional. Get over it. Geesh.

Jamie Lynn Spears begs Britney to end public feud: ‘This is embarrassing’The “Zoey 101” alum has begged her big sister to “call” her after putting the singer on blast during an interview promoting her new book. Lol after she pretty much defamed Britney on tv & published a book. Jamie Lynn barked up Britney’s tree, I hope she hits every limb going down. What else is Britney going to do with her time, make music? I think Brit is afraid that any music she puts out would be mediocre at best. Why are you choosing JLs words?It sounds like it’s B’s fault that this is public when JL is the one doing a press tour + releasing a book full of lies. This is not ok!!! Media has to stop putting Britney in a bad light and finally talk about FACTS unless you’re getting paid off

The Edelman Trust Barometer, which for two decades has polled thousands of people on trust in their governments, media, business and NGOs, conversely showed rising scores in several autocratic states, notably China. It also highlighted that business, thanks to its role developing vaccines and adapting workplace and retail practices, had retained strong levels of trust globally, albeit with reservations about its commitment to social fairness.

"It all goes back to: 'Do you have a sense of economic confidence?'" he added, noting high levels of concern about job losses linked either to the pandemic or automation. The biggest losers of public trust over the last year were institutions in Germany, down 7 points to 46, Australia at 53 (-6), the Netherlands at 57 (-6), South Korea at 42 (-5) and the United States at 43 (-5). By contrast, public trust in institutions in China stood at 83%, up 11 points, 76% in United Arab Emirates (+9) and 66% in Thailand (+5). The trillions of dollars of stimulus spent by the world's richest nations to support their economies through the pandemic have failed to instil a lasting sense of confidence, the survey suggested. In Japan, only 15% of people believed they and their families would be better off in five years' time, with most other democracies ranging around 20-40% on the same question. But in China nearly two-thirds were optimistic about their economic fortunes and 80% of Indians believed they would be better off in five years. Edelman said higher public trust levels in China were linked not just to economic perceptions but also to a greater sense of predictability about Chinese policy, not least on the pandemic. "I think there is a coherence between what is done and what is said...They have had a better COVID than the US for example." According to the Reuters pandemic tracker, the United States currently leads the world in the daily average number of new deaths reported, while China has regularly been reporting no new deaths for months as it pursues strict "zero-Covid" policies. (Graphic: United States - COVID-19 tracker ) The results of the latest Edelman survey are in tune with its findings in recent years that charted rising disillusionment with capitalism, political leadership and the media. Concerns about "fake news" were this time at all-time highs, with three-quarters of respondents globally worried about it being "used as a weapon". Among societal fears, climate change was now just behind the loss of employment as a major concern. The burden of expectation on business leaders remains heavy, with strong majorities saying they bought goods, accepted job offers and invested in businesses according to their beliefs and values. Around two-fifths, however, also said that business was not doing enough to address climate change, economic inequality and workforce reskilling.
