"China Pushes to Rewrite Rules of Global Internet: Officials aim to control online discourse and reduce U.S. influence."

As social media helped topple regimes in the Middle East and northern Africa, a senior colonel in the People’s Liberation Army publicly warned that an Internet dominated by the U.S. threatened to overthrow China’s Communist Party.

How can it do that when an internet campaign was instrumental in putting the Communist Party into the White House in 2009?

My previous post was a reference to the idea that the internet would destroy Mao's Communist Party.

But, I guess it is possible. It's easier on both sides of the Pacific to use the internet to rally the people into hoping for 'change', which could easily mean throwing the Politburo out of China and the Republic out of the USA.

Because the internet represents the free exchange of information, ideas, commerce and the histories of totalitarian regimes.

Somebody might notice the lies and worse yet, report them to the public.
