Definitely prevalent among the petty bourgeoisie, to which I counter that they can restructure the business as a worker co-op so all employees are owners, and therefore exempt from minimum wage laws

Working class yes, but unlike proletariat who sell labor power for wages and are variable capital, slaves are do not sell their labor power for wages and they are constant capital

Lots of Western media isn’t blocked, CNN isn’t blocked

What was blocked recently was BBC in response to CGTN getting blocked first in the UK

Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube were blocked because they refused to take down terrorist recruitment pages and accounts. Remember 2011 ISIS Twitter? Like that. Those services were available before

Additionally, the idea of Internet sovereignty is important to a healthy Web industry in any country. Without the firewall, companies like WeChat and Douyin/TikTok could not have developed

Furthermore, getting around the firewall is trivially easy. OpenVPN on port 443 does the trick, I’ve set one up for a friend before. Anyone who wants to get a VPN account and browse the wider Internet is freely able to, and many do this

Finally, censorship has a purpose, and that’s public safety first and foremost. China doesn’t have large conspiracy cults like QAnon or antivaxxers, because rumor-mongering gets reported and dealt with seriously. It’s like shouting “fire” in a crowded theater, stopping it is censorship but also perfectly legal. They don’t have graveyards full of children or measles, mumps, or rubella making a comeback because of this

Like it said, is within the realm of possibility, you should be focused on making applications secure to work around it as it’s an insurmountable problem to address directly

Netscape Navigator gang rise up!

Wait, it’s just OpenVPN, can you just try using your certs and username/password on the normal OpenVPN client?

Also if you’re a party member of an organization with a publishing arm, you could get discounts on bulk orders

marxists.org is a great resource. My study group has had some growing pains, but it’s helpful to start reading some material during the sessions, like Lenin’s Left Wing Communism: An Infantile Disorder

Yeah, looking forward to more bioplastic research

My friend’s aunts from Qingdao were totally open to using CBD for pain relief. Since CBD doesn’t make you high like THC, I can see hemp being legalized, especially since hemp also has historical usage in TCM. Marijuana, though, I think won’t happen for a long while since seeing and treating the effects of opium addiction is in living memory. Some other friends who went to Tibet a few times did mention that there are some hookah cafes where there’s something other than tobacco in them

They could easily control the entire market once they legalize flower extraction and food/medicine usage

Wow, China is already one of the world leaders in CBD production, and they’re only using the leaves?

Casting is imprecise for that and cast metal is very brittle

Forging might work, but that still requires a lot of energy

Hard agree, they also don’t have certain features enabled when you’re a host, which really screws things royally when you find this out in the middle of cohosting an event and you’re supposed to handle the heavy lifting of moderation

You shouldn’t be divulging political affiliation on a job form, and it won’t come up on a background check as what they check are credit and criminal records

The only thing you should be worried about with joining any Communist organization is if you’re a noncitizen or a naturalized citizen for less than 5 years, as that can get you deported

Could it be an unofficial port reporting it?

Hannah Schneeberger has been identified as one of the Rochester Police officers that pepper sprayed a 9 year old black girl earlier this week. She was identified thanks to the Open Oversight database, the Reddit postings of an ex, her own social media activity, and of course the video of her pepper …
