Will Shanghai Rebel?

There is a common Chinese saying 天下未乱蜀先乱,天下已治蜀后治 or 天下未乱蜀先乱,天下已平蜀未平. It means that when all is peaceful, rebellion starts in the region of Shu (Sichuan) and when all is appeased, Shu is yet to be appeased.

The Chinese government’s recent inhumane, draconian and counter productive measures in containing Covid infections in Shanghai have caused an uproar in the wealthiest and most cosmopolitan city in China. Will it be Shanghai that starts the rebellion this time?
