Also, critically, the majority of Mainland Chinese people (as surveyed by Western organisations like Harvard), support the CPC

This information would have been useful if people in China were not forbidden from not supporting it.

Therefore, one, the Chinese people in China don’t want or need your white saviour complex.

So then why would they need a communist party, which brings the message of salvation from a white European man? You call that representing Chinese values?

Two, this notion that the people and the government exist as separate, independent entities where you can hate one and love the other, is entirely nonsensical.

People everywhere in the world hate their governments. That’s quite normal. In the USA there are people who hate the US government but it doesn’t mean they hate themselves. A government is not this kind of sacrosanct symbol or representation of the nation as you are claiming, unless you believe in fascism where the state is supposedly this kind of unquestionable embodiment. In the USA that notion of, “If you question the government you hate America,” was held very strongly by the far-right. I would say it’s a far-right value.

In any case, well-off people who sit atop a powerful and wealthy state are not in the same class as the working poor. Xi Jinping doesn’t work. He’s just a wealthy politician. His wealth is supported by the impoverished Chinese who sleep in the factories where they work. Then you tell me, that I must love the CPC in order to love China? No thanks. China existed for thousands of years without it and will in the future will continue to do so.


This graphic is extremely misleading. I wonder, did you even read it before posting it? It only gives five examples, all of which are invalid. There are four examples of racism not at all related to political opposition to the Chinese communist party, and the fifth one is political but not racist. For most of them the PRC did not even exist at that time.

This is a strange and illogical presentation. Whoever made this was just begging for a conclusion they had no evidence for.

If you just want to say, “Oh there’s a history of racism against Chinese”, yes that’s true, but stop using that as an excuse for silencing legitimate criticism of bad policies. It’s only convenient and useful for you to talk about racism against Chinese, but you don’t say anything about when people in China are racist themselves.


The worst government is the one that uses mass surveillance


What I find convenient about admining a room is that you can easily block users and then automatically delete their message history as well, so since you can undo whatever they do, even if they are able to join and succeed temporarily, in the long term their efforts amount to nothing.

You also have fine-grained control over permissions so you can even make it like IRC or XMPP where rooms with severe moderation problems can be made so the default role when a user joins does not allow them to send messages until you give them voice, so to speak.




It may be necessary for some economies, but otherwise it’s also inevitable. At the very least it must be tolerated




Iran has announced this many times over the past several years. I don’t know to what extent they have succeeded in using crypto, though. This would be good to cross-post to !iran@lemmy.ml



This is the natural consequence of having a state which monitors its own citizens using tools of mass surveillance, for example though monitoring their Internet and social media activity. It creates a dangerous situation for all individuals, and the states which engage in these kinds of practices deserve our highest condemnation.

This isn’t even the worst possible scenario; governments regularly access this kind of information about users without even a warrant or any form of approval. They are also not only spying on their own citizens, but potentially anyone.


What would a physicist know about life force energy


If you just want to play games you don’t need to worry about the engine or which OS is supposed. All that stuff will certainly run on W11.
