Earlier today Hong Huang recommended the site to her 4.3m Sina Weibo followers. Within a few hours Sinocism was blocked by China’s Great Firewall, the first time I have had any content, let alone a whole site, fall victim to the Digital Curtain.
It is pathetic that China’s censors would waste their time on a small blog like Sinocism. Their actions undermine the nauseating claims by shills like Martin Jacques and Niall Ferguson that China has developed a superior model that will soon overtake the West. It has not and never will so long as its leaders are so paranoid.
One World, Two Internets.
