    Apple tells you what you can and can't download on your device.


     


    It's funny you say that, not because I disagree with you, but that your statement supports Apple's defense against the Chinese government & media claims. The Chinese, who you're defending, demanded Apple put controls in place, which your post admits are already there. Oops?

    I understand your point, but really, it's not like the Chinese have "played fair" in any of this.  It's not in their nature.

    You REALLY need to learn to distinguish between a people and their government. Comments like yours sound racist. Is that your intention?

    What a ridiculous comparison. Are you for real?

    Nobody is forcing anybody to purchase and use any Apple product. 

    If somebody is unfortunate enough to be stuck or living in China, you don't have any choice and you can not refuse anything.

    And Apple doesn't HAVE to be in China, they choose to be over there. So people need to quit complaining how the Chinese handle business and follow their rules.

    Racist?  Seriously?  Come on.

    You miss the point. We're not saying the Chinese government isn't corrupt. We're saying it matters how you deal with it. Telling them to "get lost", Archie Bunker style, will not be productive in any way. Grow up a bit and see if there's a response that would actually lead to a functional resolution.



     


    It doesn't matter what the corrupt lackey of the imperialist paper tiger says. Send at 8:30.

    In China, before it became a nanny state under Mao, a rich Chinese would buy a pre-adolescent girl to rape. This would get his motor running so he could have regular sex with his foot-bound mistress. No dirty pictures needed.

    1.  … where as Mao carefully limited himself to the pre-pubescent girl.


    2.  The refusal to 'kowtow' has an honourable history.

    I'd just like to point out that the truth is the truth for everyone, and belief or non-belief in it is irrelevant, it's still the one truth, not the truth for you and the truth for me, just simply the truth. The phrase, "does not make it the truth for everyone," is pernicious nonsense. By definition, the truth is the truth for everyone, whether they believe it or know it, or not.

    Apple tells you what you can and can't download on your device. It tells developers what they can and can't add to the app store. The only way to circumvent Apple's hold on your device is to jailbreak it (or for the Chinese, using a proxy) , which they make it difficult to do.



    Now all of you obviously enjoy all these restrictions Apple puts on you, and enjoy Apple deciding what's good for you, so what's the problem with the Chinese being told what to watch and what to see on the Internet?


     


    You just lost all credibility for all time. Not that you had much to begin with, but... poof! ... it's gone.

    The communists in China were purged years ago. There hasn't been a communist in the "Communist Party" since not long after Mao died. The current regime's politico-economic philosophy is, in terms of traditional labels, much closer to fascist capitalism (although, that doesn't capture it exactly) than communism or anything else.

    Off-topic, I know, but it saddens me that countries like China and the Soviet Union have been allowed to define what "communism" means when they are (or were, in the case of the USSR) as far from the concept as could be.  They're simply fascists.

    /off-topic rant
    Oh Jesus. Another "Communism hasn't worked because it hasn't been done right" argument. Gun. Mouth. Insert.

    Wait...what? I've been away for a while, so I must say I'm taken aback at how misguided some of these comments are. First we had someone essentially stating that Communism doesn't work because it hasn't been done right, and that he's "mad" that the USSR and China get to define it. Then, we have you stating that Americans only think Communism s bad because "that's what we've been told ". Jesus.

    Has it ever occurred to you that people don't like Communism because, uh, they've seen how evil and oppressive it is when actually practiced? I'm not talking about reading Marx here. I'm not talking about what you think Communism COULD or SHOULD be as you debate it in your political science class. I'm talking about what Communism actually IS and what its results are. It leads to poverty, backwardness, oppression, death, starvation and tyranny. We know that because we have this little thing called "history."

    Communism is a concept that we can debate all day.  What we CAN'T debate is that the USSR and China have primarily defined what communism is, and they are as far from actual communism as could be.  Therefore, the fact is that our (meaning the general public) understanding of what communism is is very tilted.


     


    Now, you can take that however you would like to.  But I don't see how it is even debatable.

    Keep twisting yourself into a pretzel. People have been making that ridiculous argument for years. The fact is that no, we cannot debate what Communism is. We know what it is, because we've seen it. We know what it leads to. Any "debate" about what a Communism is or could be is utterly stupid and completely misguided. It's also purely academic. Period,
