So Scoble commented on the whole China blocking the main search engines, despite people in China like Blognation's David Feng saying it was not true.
Within his entry he suggests the US pulls out of the Olympics, fine more medals for everybody else, of course it would rob US athletes who in many cases for years have been looking forward to and training for the games. But never mind them, just use them as part of a political stunt, like in 1979 in response to a war you lot started.
He also goes on to say:
The Chinese get to have their cake (our money coming over for everything from toys to paying their top software researchers).
Well actually, China is one of the main countries that have been lending the US all that money in the first place; the US after all is several trillion dollars in debt and is believed to owe China well over $350 billion.
This is a reminder that China is a communist country where the people aren’t really allowed to own things and where businesses don’t really need to play fair.
There are 743 000 privately owned enterprises in China; the private sector dwarfs the public sector.
Businesses never want to play fair, that's capitalism Robert, after all its American and European businesses that are opposed to the new trade union laws that are being drafted in the PRC, ones which would allow collective bargaining by the workers.
You're describing a capitalist country. Where people can't afford to own things, because a minority already own everything and where businesses rule the roost.
You should go and look up the definition of communism. From the Oxford English Dictionary:
noun a political and social system whereby all property is owned by the community and each person contributes and receives according to their ability and needs.
noun an economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit.
To say China is a communist country is utterly ridiculous.
