An American in China

Power of the Internet

Now I see why China is so fearful of the net. They commit so many atrocities that they cant possibly cover them all up. There are so many small fires that they cannot focus on all of them so focus on the big ones. For instance, any pissed off farmer now has a venue
from which to vent and expose the truth- something that the ruling communist party has never had to face, nor the ancient emperors. Thus, they have merely resulted to blocking the big stuff, taking care of it, and the little things slip through the cracks.
For instance, the son of the current president was caught in a bribery scandal, but it was blocked all throughout China.
