New freedom in the Chinese marketplace...

You have the freedom to be monitored by students. That's right...the government is paying students to monitor forums and report people who aren't towing the party (pardon the pun) line.

Sweet jebus on a stick...it's 1984, but in China. These people are reporting the "Spies of Goldstein" in forums.

And if that wasn't bad enough, now the Chinese media is telling foreign press what they can and can't report.

In unrelated news, China has become a haven for fuzzy bunnies and rainbows. Tiananmen Square never happened. And Taiwan is part of the mainland China. And Tibet too.

Nope, everything is perfect in China. As long as you belong to $Official_State_Religon, you'll be ok, I guess.
