China congress: How authorities censor your thoughts

If you control public communication you can control the way people think and how they behave. That’s what Xi Jinping’s government is counting on.

And it is never more true than at the time of major political gatherings.

The Communist Party Congress, held every five years, is set to begin next week: an event which will culminate in the revelation of the new leadership team behind General Secretary Xi.

So the censors here are poised to restrict with one hand and disseminate with the other.

How is this different from the LPC/CBC?

    It isn’t different and in fact the only country in the West where it has not totally succeeded is the United States.
