China purges during calls for unity: Will China ever allow free speech?

  • Hopefully one day

    I don't believe that the current policies of the Chinese government can last forever. Many Chinese citizens are already waking up to the falsehoods and lies that their government tells them, and the rest of the world are already wise to their tricks. It might not happen tomorrow, but I think things will change there eventually.

  • Yes, I think so.

    Chinese authorities, recognizing in recent years that limited freedom of expression enables the government to better monitor potentially problematic social issues have begun to tolerate criticism, but only from certain categories of people, a kind of "free-speech elite," and only then in government-controlled forums.Despite barriers to access to the means of publication and the dangers inherent in publishing political news and information, members of China's "free-speech elite" are able to express concerns and criticism regarding the government with less fear of punishment than the average Chinese citizen

  • Yes i agree

  • They prefer control.

    China will not ever allow free speech because they think it is better for their own interests to have control. China thinks that it is better to keep the population in line. They avoid things like protests by keeping a firm hand on their own people. Ultimately, they see this as the easy way out.
