No mistaken opinions allowed!
Ain’t technology grand!
Communist China has unveiled a new app “for reporting mistaken opinions” (https://summit.news/2021/04/19/china-launches-new-app-allowing-citizens-to-report-others-for-expressing-mistaken-opinions/). As one government official said, “We hope that most internet users will play an active role in supervising society.”
Oh, boy. Get the whole country ratting out each other.
The app was designed by a government agency, the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC).
The Chicoms want people to report each other for “denying Party… in an attempt to confuse people’s thinking.” They’ll solve that problem by erasing people’s thinking. Any criticism–er, “misinformation” (Gee, that sounds familiar!)–of the state, the party, of Chinese history, or any action taken by the government is to be reported.
That smacking sound you hear is Western leftids licking their chops in envy.
But at least there’s nothing in the least bit sinister about our sports leagues, Hollywood, and assorted politicians and academics totally selling out to China. It’s for our own good, don’t you know. Socialist paradise. Everybody on the same page, all the time. Or else.
We have nothing left but our prayers; and we’d better use them.
