So in case your plan for the afternoon was to call someone in China and say something with the word protest in it, your phone call will be dropped like a bad habit. So watch out. In fear of civilian
protest or should I say, revolt, the Chinese government is cracking down majorly on their people. Whenever the word “protest” is used in conversation, the government cuts off the call.
This is purely amazing to me. Not only is it a gigantic infringement on rights that we are so used to, it is an unfathomable technological feat. For the government to be able to monitor the entire country’s cell phone activity – IN REAL TIME – makes me astonished at the technological developments that the country has.
Furthermore, if they can cut off conversations at the word “protest,” what else will they do? Though I understand the meaning behind their worries, this is going a bit too far.
