Beijing on Tuesday vowed to increase oversight of China’s already heavily censored internet as part of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s efforts to craft a more “civilized” cyberspace environment based on the “guiding status of Marxism,” Xinhua reported.
The CCP’s Central Committee and State Council jointly issued a statement on September 14 outlining plans to “consolidate the guiding status of Marxism in the ideological cyberspace sphere, foster a common ideology among the whole [Communist] Party and the Chinese people, and interiorize core socialist values.”
“[Chinese] cyberspace will be governed under the law, which will crack down on and prevent online crimes,” the edict read, as quoted by Xinhua, China’s official state-run press agency.

Their internet is about as free as our own.
I remember when US tech companies built hardware and VPNs for ordinary Chinese citizens to get around the “Chinese Firewall”.
Now they’re in league with the ChiComs to deploy the “firewall” in the US and prevent ordinary citizens from seeing information the government doesn’t want us to see.
That is already here with Social(ist) media and what was once the free flow of ideas will just be another propaganda tool. Once that happens the internet gets canceled, and all the devices will get torched at my house.
“Says the regime that only murdered 80,000,000 of their own citizens.”
If 80,000,000 people fall and no one is able to hear about it, did it really happen?
