1 million Uighurs thrown into "re-education" camps

This is to do with the recent decision of the chinese government last month to burn all religious books, bible, koran etc and direct china back to a non-religious nation

Late last year, Chinese President Xi Jinping — who recently abolished term limits for the Chinese presidency — made it clear there would be a crackdown on foreign religions this year.

Mr Xi had said religions could operate only if they were "Chinese in orientation" and that Beijing "must provide active guidance to religions so that they can adapt themselves to socialist society" — which experts saw as an part of an ongoing crackdown by the ruling party.

Tuesday's white paper said China's main religions were Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Catholicism and Christianity. It added that of its nearly 200 million religious citizens, Christians accounted for more than 38 million, while Catholics made up about 6 million.
 
Very sad, this is another example of why communism cannot function without violence, and oppression to terrorize or kill anyone that does not comply.

Seems like a pretty large territory.
 
I wonder what will be the magnitude of social upheaval in China, once automations end the need for outsourced low-cost human labor in the future. That combined with this kind of oppression may serve to facilitate a lot of internal strife against the communist government.
 
Europe has its own pervasive censorship and mass-indoctrination of falsehoods nowadays, supported by a horde of well-meaning idiots. China is no different, but I foresee Europe reaching the same level of efficiency and arrogance before long.

It does appear China is pro-actively dealing with Islam in a slightly more humane manner than Islam deals with infidels, which would be the next level of efficiency and arrogance.

Did you even read the article? How the hell is that anything equivalent to modern-day Europe?
 
I don't think their Catholicism is sanctioned by the Pope, thus is not genuine. Nonetheless, why not just call it Christianity as that's the name of the religion. Having 2 categories is superfluous as Catholicism is just a type of Christianity.

the Chinese leaders are well aware that their economy can't rely on low wages any more
they try to convert their economy into a economy based on knowledge
I don't know whether they'll succeed
but I wouldn't underestimate the creativity of the Chinese people
 
with religion or without religion does not make a country poorer or richer ..........religion only works if it takes a very very minor influence on a nations decision ...............the period of king and religion is long gone .
Besides , one does not need any company to pray, one does not even need a place to pray ..............the best way to use religion is alone.

China pulls books that are incompatible with the state ideology from online stores, Europe does the same. Of course Europe says it's combating hate speech, but it's still political censorship, and it's censorship of political ideologies that are most at odds with the state ideology that is preached in schools. The only radical ideology that seems to get some leeway is Communism, even though it's the ideology responsible for some of the greatest crimes against humanity.

The Chinese state moves in millions of non-Uighurs into Uighur territory. The European states move millions of non-Europeans into European territory.

China imprisons people who violate speech laws, Europe imprisons people who violate speech laws.

Most Chinese support speech restricting laws, engage in self-censorship, and help authorities arrest thought criminals. Most Europeans support speech restricting laws, engage in self-censorship, and help authorities arrest thought criminals.

China bans opposition parties, there are countless examples of European nations banning opposition parties.

The only difference is that China is arguably less humane, but Europe is becoming notorious for placing political prisoners in solitary confinement which all experts agree to be a form of torture.

Chinese jails appear to be primarily a form of slave labor, so arguably it's better to end up working 10 hours a day in a Chinese jail for a year than to spend a year in solitary confinement in a European jail, as the latter is likely to cause permanent psychological damage.

Europe is most definitely headed down a slippery slope, especially if inmate on inmate violence and rape is taken into account, which appears to be less of a problem in China.

Those are false equivalencies, you're not tortured to death or psychologically indoctrinated in camps, in Europe. They don't mass incarcerate people based on ethnicity in Europe. They don't make it illegal to practice your faith in Europe.

They don't classify you as having a pre-disposition to violence just because of the year you were born:


Young Uyghurs are especially targeted — people under 40. A report from RFA quotes a village security official, who says, “People born in the 1980s and 1990s have been categorized as part of a violent generation — many of whom have been taken into reeducation under this category.” I’m reminded of Cuba, where many have been arrested on the charge of “pre-criminal social dangerousness.”

China is a notorious human rights violator, it's absurd to compare them to Europe.

On top of that, we don't know the actual extent of cruelty going on in Chinese prisons and gulags; I doubt the communist government would be forthcoming with that.

But I'd rather be incarcerated in Europe, than China any day.

Here's the cell they held Anders Behring Breivik in, in Norway. That looks better than some people's apartments that they pay a lot of money for. He murdered over seventy children of politicians as an act of terrorism against the state. This is too good for a mass murderer. Do you think he would even be alive right now, if it were in China?! Give me a break.

THATS A PRISON CELL????!!!! ^^^ Looks like a nice little manhattan pad; its like he's being rewarded for what he did. Pretty much everywhere else you'd end up in a cold cage for robbing from a convenience store, let alone murduring 70 people (assuming whomevers in charge decides to keep you alive after the bloodshed)

Totally agree: it's an absurd comparison.

I have to say, while I think the conditions in American prisons are inhumane, that "cell" is far better than he deserves. He killed children for God's sake.
 
Does that prison have like a golf course or equestrian center?
 
THATS A PRISON CELL????!!!!
It takes 1 minute of googling to find out it's fake news. I suggest you do your own research, also, calculate how many people a government could hire to manipulate public opinion on the Internet with a 2 billion budget.

What is fake news?

If it's fake, prove it. Simple.

It's laughable you have to resort to down voting posts, since you're unable to properly respond.

Breivik's world

Three cells - one for sleeping, one for studying, one for exercising - plus daily access to exercise yard


  • Can play video games, watch TV and read newspapers
  • Has a computer (without internet access)
  • Can prepare his own food and do his own washing
  • Has phone conversations with a "female friend"
  • Contact with prison staff, lawyers, a priest, health professionals
  • Has declined to play chess with volunteers
  • Built a gingerbread house as part of a prison competition

It is ridiculous to think this is any indication of a trend towards Chinese style gulags or the experience of the Uighurs in China.
 
@Expredel,
You have a problem with being asked to prove your assertions?

If you can't prove it and you don't apologize for posting incorrect information, then you deliberately posted incorrect information. There are consequences for deliberately trying to deceive other members.
