Only "Mostly Free", now.
Agree with Alan... and those are declining at a fast rate...
fingers in the dike. This is gonna be the awesomest century evar.... wouldn't be surprised if we beat out the last one for raw bodycount though. Hope not.
It seems like censorship goes part and parcel with the nanny state. Heck, even Canada has a heavy-handed attitude toward "hate speech."
I visited the PRC professionally a few years ago and was quite surprised to learn that college students knew nothing of what is, to us, the famous Tienanmen Square uprising with its world-known photograph of a protester facing-down a tank. My asking about this incident drew puzzled looks from the three students I was having dinner with. I hope they are not now in prison for following up and trying to relieve their ignorance.Knowing that we don't know, is the first step.Ignorance is not safe. On the contrary ...
To clarify my point, students in the PRC didn't know that they didn't know about the Tienanmen Square uprising.How will we know that we don't know?(A little paranoia can be a good thing!)
