China is cutting mobile phone services in its Muslim-heavy far west via @qz
The shutdowns in the Xinjiang region, home to an estimated 10 million Muslim Uyghurs, are targeting activity that is widespread across China. WhatsApp is much less popular in China than homegrown WeChat but still has an estimated 23 million users there, while Telegram was popular with groups including human rights lawyers and their supporters until it was blocked earlier this year. As many as 90 million Chinese may use VPNs to jump the Great Firewall, tech analysts estimate. - Zheping Huang, Quartz

Internet users bypass Internet censorship. The core idea of CacheBrowser is to grab censored content cached by Content Delivery Networks such as Akamai and CloudFlare directly from their CDN edge servers, therefore, foiling censors' DNS interference.

Anonymous Conservative -- The Frailest Generation Wants Speech Censored
'New poll shows the Frailest Generation’s desire for limits on free speech: "A new Pew Research Center poll shows that 40 percent of American Millennials (ages 18-34) are likely to support government prevention of public statements offensive to minorities. It should be noted that vastly different numbers resulted for older generations in the Pew poll on the issue of offensive speech and the government’s role. Around 27 percent of Generation X’ers (ages 35-50) support such an idea, while 24 percent of Baby Boomers (ages 51-69) agree that censoring offensive speech about minorities should be a government issue. Only 12 percent of the Silent Generation (ages 70-87) thinks that government should prevent offensive speech toward minorities." -- Again, these are undeveloped amygdalae which cannot tolerate any sort of angst, because they are conditioned to lives of total ease. They need safe spaces and trigger warnings, and a life lacking in any stress whatsoever. If resources were free, this would lead them to flee danger avoid any hardship which might slow their reproductive rate. They would never risk of themselves for anything else. All of that is the best strategy to survive and procreate at the highest rate possible in that environment. -- The ultimate answer is Apocalypse, but until then a good dose of as much ridicule as you can possibly heap upon them will help immeasurably. The diminution of social stature that will ensue by labeling them the Frailest Generation will go a long way to triggering their amygdalae whenever they contemplate publicly demonstrating their weakness by demanding some form of amygdala assuaging."
