My Experience of the Chinese Legal System | Balding's World
Chinese, in my opinion, hold a dark Dostoyevskian view of the world with man tainted by sin. The lack of social trust drives an enormous range of phenomenon from storing up money abroad by those with means to preferring a range of foreign consumer products. The narrow limit of trust drives most to view fellow man with deep suspicion convinced they engage in nefarious behavior for which they deserve the eternal damnation wrought by the state.

As I lived and experienced the cynicism of Chinese towards human nature and man, I began to understand what I believe explains both the cool detachment and belief in guilt before innocence.

Google’s Dragonfly will intensify surveillance on journalists in China - @CJR
Mia Shuang Li outlines some of the ways Google's proposed Beijing-friendly search engine, Dragonfly, would impact journalism in China, stating that it would become yet another "part of the Communist Party of China’s surveillance apparatus" and "aid the CPC in broad censorship." In addition, when it comes to government data requests, a "CPC-compliant Google would be unlikely to protect data from apps like Gmail and Google Docs," putting users in the country at risk. Beyond China, "Dragonfly would embolden other authoritarian states regarding censorship," setting a troublesome precedent.

+ Google CEO Sundar Pichai faced tough questions about the Dragonfly project from members of the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, The Intercept reports. https://theintercept.com/2018/12/11/google-congressional-hearing/

Crackdown in Beijing: 'Using Twitter is more dangerous than street demonstrations'
Though it's already blocked in China, Beijing is cracking down on Twitter users who access the social media site via circumvention tools, reports Global Voices Advocacy: "The December 5 release of 42 testimonies collected by China Change [https://chinachange.org/2018/12/05/china-steps-up-nationwide-crackdown-to-silence-twitter-users-the-unmediated-story/], a Chinese human rights advocacy site, details the ordeals of hundreds of Twitter users who have been detained and interrogated by national security police officers since September 2018. In most cases, police have asked — if not forced — these users to delete their posts or accounts...Mainland Chinese authorities have arrested Twitter users in the past, but there was no clear pattern or evidence of a strategic crackdown...The current crackdown is a new and more worrisome development. It is happening nationwide and is not restricted to a specific online incident or act. The number of Twitter users who have been directly threatened is estimated to be in the hundreds or even more."

hidden-bad-loans-highlight-struggles-of-rural-banks-101358933.html

In June, the CBIRC ordered city and rural commercial banks to classify all loans more than 90 days overdue as nonperforming by the end of next year, which has led to a surge in their nonperforming-loan ratios, according to CBIRC data. Analysts have attributed the rise in rural banks’ credit risk to their poor risk management and aggressive expansion over the past few years.
