    If China were a girl shed be that chick you dated in college that fork-stabbed you in the thigh because she caught you looking at a girl who happened to cross your field of vision out the cafeteria window, but you considered sticking with her because the potential upside was so big.

    Scientists now have decisive molecular evidence that humans and chimpanzees once had a common momma and that this lineage had previously split from monkeys.

    China Bans South Park

    Culture is a huge US export. Is banning SP or NBA measurably different than restricting Chinese AI technology?

    Chinese IP court is proving affective. It will take time.

    I just hope the sociopolitical dick waving doesn't end up in fireworks shortages next summer.

    Unfortunately, this is a serious topic. The rise of China will see more of this. All of the numerous self-inflicted fractures in our relationships with our allies will leave nobody to stand up for free speech and human rights, not that our record was at all ublemished in that regard. It has its moments. However, I think our record in that regard is better. Unless the rest of the world can get it's shit together, we are truly fuct as China will dominate in more ways than just the physical.

    I'm not sure what is more laughable about your post, that China is serious about IP rights or the source: "China Daily (Chinese: 中国日报; pinyin: Zhōnggu Rbo) is an English-language daily newspaper owned by the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China and published in the People's Republic of China."

    In other news today the publicity department of the Communist Party says the new IP Court is doing a bang up job! Next at 5, why aliens are to blame for millions of Uighurs disappearance

    Mind you, this isn't a personal attack, but both of those gave me a huge chuckle.

    Oh, you're serious?



    Ok then, the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China puts out a newspaper article that says they're doing a sweet job with their new IP Court and we should take it as gospel?

    Wanna buy a BMW X5? You can get em in China cheap!



    Human rights issues aside, the point is the lengths the Communist Party goes to silence anything that doesn't tow the line or put them in a glowing light. Sure, the cost of doing business in China has been dealing with this for a long time, but to think they're going to act in any other way than what they have demonstrated time and again: muzzling any whiff of free speech or respecting IP rights of others, is laughable.

    Certain people made the choice for us. And it is not fine with me. We need to do better at home and abroad. Unfortunately we are very definitely headed in the wrong direction now.

    the most pathetic part of your bullshit is you've never been there, have no intention of going there, and get your propaganda from bullshitters.
