Document Number Nine (London Review of Books, Oct 10): "Facebook has never been allowed into China, despite Mark Zuckerberg’s increasingly tragic attempts to suck up to the CCP: by prominently announcing that he was learning Mandarin, being photographed jogging in Beijing’s reeking, toxic smog, asking Xi Jinping to name his daughter (Xi declined) and – my favourite – making sure he has a copy of Xi’s arse-numbingly tedious 'The Governance of China' on his desk when Chinese journalists visit Facebook."

That was an amazing time because there was no clue that the iron curtain was about to fall down. We basically thought it was going to last forever.

IIRC, some borders got more liberalized in Poland and people started stream out as fast as they could. The Osties got it in their heads that enough was enough.
  6:10pm Sam:

FUCK the NBA!!!!!
Boycott the NBA!!!
  6:10pm china_defender:

steve bannon among other us intel rogue reactionary elements are working behind the scenes stirring unrest in hong kong, check out wfmu partner dave emory's recent spitfirelist broadcasts about it. *shrugs shoulders* i adore this show Mark but the antichina stance is a little much sometimes :)

@Henry yeah, total surprise.

Yes, agreed — NBA, go lick donkey humps!!!

It’s ok Mark, we live in a totally stable democracy with a thoughtful, reasonable leader. It could neeeever happen here!
Avatar 6:15pm Fredericks:

Democracy or Corptocracy?
  6:16pm Sam:

All basketball players should go on strike until China gives Hong Kong the rights they want.
  6:16pm John from Florham park:

@Sam that is not gonna happen with the NBA
  6:17pm David:

freedom all the way, but those who vote their area free will be innundated with crime until they vote to join Big Brother land.

At least football players took a knee. Can’t these guys do something?

@Henry:First it was Czechoslavakia then Hungary stopped patrolling the border w/ Austria So East Germans went to Czechoslavakia to Austria to West Germany. Poland had one anti-solidarity crackdown right before then, and the rest of the Eastern block all sort of gave up.
  6:19pm John from Florham park:

@Sam NBA players are greedy that’s why

hi chresti!
  6:23pm Sean from Iowa:

@6:10china_defender ... Just because one opposes Hitler doesn't mean you have to support Stalin. This was a mistake made last century, it's disappointing to see people making it again.
  6:27pm china defender:

nazis woulda won if not for Stalin. 27 million soviets died, which vastly outnumbers any other state's war dead.
  6:31pm Sean from Iowa:

I'm not talking about Russians. I'm talking about international communists who realized too late what a monster Stalin was. Russians didn't really have a choice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

By the way, happy birthday, Vladimir Putin.
  6:32pm Sam:

I worked with a woman from China who was convinced that because the population there is so enormous and unequal, if they allowed true freedom it would lead to total anarchy. She had a point. China only barely stays stable because the massive state control keeps tensions in check.

@Henry:Havel wasn't in office yet, but he would be soon....

I’ve thought it would be neat to have ancestors or parents from the Isle of Man and Iran, then you could claim both Manx and Persian heritage.

Thanks for having him as a guest. I will now definitely check out his show.

no surprised, china forces all corporations to comply with its censorship laws and one china policy
  6:57pm Sam:

I like how a dictatorship ruling over a billion people had its feelings hurt by a tweet and then a multi billion dollar sports industry apologized and gave it a hug. While protestors are being shot in a financial capital very similar to Manhattan.
