The China Challenge Continues to Mount
While aware that China suppresses freedom of expression within its borders and territories, we are rarely privy to how Beijing’s propaganda keeps its citizenry acquiescent. Adopting Orwell’s 1984’s Newspeak the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) state-run media projects an image of a superior society with even greater safety and freedoms than in the west.
Beijing’s claims of greater safety are boosted when international headlines tell of multiple mass shootings of children in the USA.
