Default Re: China is asshoe!

Here in the US, socialism is considered the slipperiest of slopes toward communism, to the point that many consider them to be more or less the same.

Of course, these are the same people who nitpick about the difference between a democracy and a republic, as if it refutes anything their filthy socialist enemies say about the current threats to democracy.

Here's a guy pontificating talking about the bros who immediately respond to "America is a Democracy" with "No, America is a Republic."

No matter what, the tyranny of the minority is much better than the tyranny of the majority. You just have to look at it. It's obvious.

China insists Genghis Khan exhibit not use words 'Genghis Khan' | China | The Guardian

Quote:
The Château des ducs de Bretagne history museum in the western city of Nantes said it was putting the show about the fearsome 13th century leader on hold for over three years.

The museum’s director, Bertrand Guillet, said: “We made the decision to stop this production in the name of the human, scientific and ethical values that we defend.”

It said the Chinese authorities demanded that certain words, including “Genghis Khan,” “Empire” and “Mongol” be taken out of the show. Subsequently they asked for power over exhibition brochures, legends and maps.
The article does not afaics explain why they couldn't go ahead with the exhibition and ignore the Chinese demands. Perhaps the exhibits were actually from Inner Mongolia and controlled by the the Chinese govt?

Anyway, fuck 'em.
