When I lived in china, I saw first hand the censorship. Try typing tianninmum square massicre on the internet, and you will get nothing. Same with
BBC news and social sits like Facebook.
They are walking a very fine line with this, and they are terrified of some kind of revolt.
Saying that, china is a completely different place to what it was 30 years ago, and it is slowly getting better, and the Chinese people are being
influenced by western ways, and that can't be stopped.
One thing I will say. When I lived in Beijing, I did feel safe. I had no problems at all. In fact, when I came back to the UK, I was nervous walking
the streets for a little while.
One of the main differences is respect. Teens and young people are getting worse and worse in the UK. No respect at all. This is not the case when I
was in Beijing. I never felt safer.
But like I said, the government is terrified of losing the people, and that's why they do what they do. But it will backfire. Only a matter of time.
