Browsing the web in China, like many other things here, is like pissing against the wind. The reason is, of course, that this country is run by a bunch of incompetent, talentless, unintelligent, uneducated, selfish, mutually-ass-kissing, baijiu stinking, phlegm spitting motherfuckers. This people only stay in power because the majority of Chinese people don’t even know that they are being fucked around. And those who do are promptly told to keep their thoughts to themselves.
Going back to the censorship problem, the Chinese government has this big ass filter in place that checks everything you do or view on the Internet. Every time I look up something in Google, if one of the search results contains a forbidden term, then I get an error that the page cannot be accessed or the page does not exist. This way, when searching for legitimate material, possibly to do your job or coursework, you cannot access the information you require. This way China will never prosper, for millions of people’s life hours are being wasted.
China spends a huge amount of money on military. I believe they don’t seek to defend themselves from other countries, but mainly to keep it’s own sheep orderly. Any sheep that wanders off the herd is quickly dealt with.
Same thing with news reporting. On TV all bad news are always from abroad. All domestic news are good news, and if they are bad they are compensated with new about how well police handled the situation. There was a demonstration some time ago here in Wuxi, which was of course quickly dissolved. Not a word about it in the news, not even in local TV or press. I only know because someone told me about it.
Personally, I would like to shove a Tier-1 server up some people’s asses here, just for fun, to get it out of my system, for wasting my time.
I despise the Chinese government’s decision to fuck us around like this. China’s worst enemy surely is its own government, and one day people are going to turn around and say hey fuck you.
But for now we’ll continue to be treated like mushrooms: kept in the dark and fed bullshit.
