    Liars are not the worst kind of crininals, by a wide margin, and this particular type of liar was enabled by the greed of others as well as that of the state. Nobody loses “percentages of the gdp” on their own. This barbarism has nothing to do with justice and everything to do with the butchers of the state trying to save face and fulfill their promess of infinite vengeance against those who would embarrass it.

    The Earth needs cleansing from the statism infection, today’s most wretched mental illness.

      Not liars, criminals with tens of thousands of victims. If you don’t want the state of Vietnam to conduct executions then they need to fall out of favour with the people. This is an issue of societal values. If instead just the state felt embarrassed, then carrying out a punishment abhorred by the people would only embarrass them more.

        It’s a killer state, the people will have to do what it says. Or else… The state is only embarrassed to have its deadly coercive deterrence disrespected.

        The solution to that is easy, state sanctionned executions. What better way to keep tge population in line and trust your the one and only strong man they crave so much.

          In recent memory, the people of Vietnam have destroyed two coercive dictatorial governments. If they felt the state wasn’t subservient to them, they’d do it again. The government is subservient to the CPV, who are subservient to the people. The state of Vietnam is the people of Vietnam.

            “L’État c’est moi” every state says it is *the people".

            How does a fraudster steals percentages of GDP without anyone noticing ? They were allowed to and enabled to do it.

              The overwhelming majority of states are not ‘the people’, but instead enforcers working for the bourgeoisie.

              Vietnam has a market economy in complacence with IMF demands. This means capitalists are given extremely disproportionate power that they can abuse if they are criminals. Jeff Bezos owns 1% of the GDP of the USA for reference.
