Completely arbitrary censorship of local TV:

Truly an awful government.
I'm more concerned about their one child policy than anything else. Reproduction and family are starting point or the foundation of personal freedoms I think. To deny people that is basically to deny them life.
Their time travel show bans are pretty ridiculous though :loco:
Well their detention of even moderate dissidents without charges and then life sentences on trumped up charges, or their occassional massacres, would probably be at the top of my list. This is just a less-often cited example of why the People's Republic of China is not the best China.
I guess you'll also be passing on Singapore then?From the Wikipedia:
Singapore FTA TV Programme Code (not for the feeble-hearted)
At least China allows Taiwanese (Minnan) songs. And Chinglish.
It'd be pretty hard to come up with the worst thing they've done or do I guess
I have sometimes wondered what it would be like if all of China was like Taiwan. It doesn't seem impossible and it'd be a very different world...
As for Singapore, I will be visiting there in a couple months though I don't see myself attempting to settle there. It'll be interesting to check it out, though
I don't watch TV. Problem solved. There are plenty of reasons to be critical, but access to Taiwanese telly and boob job culture aren't them.
But seriously, I get the point. At some point China will figure out that no outliers means cultural stagnation. Slow process.
Just trying to use google in China is a nightmare. Last time I visited I could barely function as the internet was so slow and so many websites were down or throttled to hell by their firewalls.
