Soon the UN will issue a strongly worded letter about human rights abuses in China!

Oh wait, no, they won't. Ever.

If that "fark link" is about Snowden and/or the NSA, maybe. The apologists for state run Stazi style domestic oppression and surveillance are barf worthy around here lately.

Why do you think so much malicious traffic comes from China?

The whole damned country is running pirated Windows XP, and every network password is "88888888."

This is Beijing's dilemma. The government wants to develop the Internet to drive innovation and economic growth, while keeping tabs on any potential political risk bubbling up online," says Lu Stout.

China proves Jefferson wrong every day.  "When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. "

Bejing is scared shiatless of the people.

The people are just like "eh, fine, whatever, you guys deal with politics; just let us keep making money."

Huh.  Whaddaya know.

Jefferson didn't say that.

Well, whoever said that is wrong, anyway.

Priorities.  Being able to complain about your boss is more important than having the ability to speak against the government.

Priorities.

Living in China, I was able to buy huge fireworks.  Back home, I can only get dinky sparklers and shiat.

Living in China, I could get drunk all day, and take a leak behind any parked car.  Here?  I'd get a ticket!

Living in China, I could smoke in any restaurant, directly under no smoking signs.  Here, it's presumed that I should have to smoke outside, if at all!

Now I ask you, truly:  Who is more free?

Nope, all nations in the UN undergo the UPR as a minimum now, so other nations can have digs about them on various HR related issues without the UNSC members being able to veto them, and there are a number of improvements even during the limited time frame between UPR1 and UPR2:

How does an agency even start to keep up with that kind of workload?  Are they really going to investigate the worthiness of every applicant, or is the idea just to intimidate everyone so much that nobody even applies?
