The Transparent Censor

I found this post, and find it quite chilling in its simplicity.

I LIVE WITH A 24 year old from Shanghai who assures me that though China may THINK their people are clueless sheep marching towards the slaughter, they know better. They understand what is going on—SORT OF. We often have discussion about monetary policy at night—the Fed, the People’s Bank of China, blah blah blah…she gets it and says they KNOW.

The Chinese are smarter than you realize.

Her famous line?

“In China, they censor our news and tell us they do it ‘for our own good.’ But here in America, they censor YOUR news but don’t admit to it.”

Sadly, she’s right.
