    It seems like the communist battery is fully charged now, so they can disconnect from capitalism for a few years...

    You surely know it is bound to happen somewhere rotting/rotten.

    I wonder how long it will take overtaken sub standard competition and opposition to Chinese product to try and ban home grown businesses from importing and taking advantage of certain of their deemed too sensitive and critical advanced and attractive facilities/utilities/services?

      You mean the Chinese State has the right to ask for/enhance the code you generate for your outsourced partners?

        Certainly if/when they want or need it and they're able or enabled, Nightkiller. Why ever not? What state doesn't deserve such a cheeky selfless assistance?

    WTF?

    "young men who dress fashionably and don't conform to male stereotypes"

    Um, what exactly is that brain fart ?

    Which "male stereotypes" are acceptable in China now ? The rugged woodcutter ?

    I'm absolutely not and never have been a fan of boys bands in general, but I fail to see how the argument of male stereotype can be used to ban them.

    That's pretty backwards as far I'm concerned.

    This isn't that different than what the US did in the past

    Control depictions in media? Hollywood Production Code, anyone? In the 50s many schools didn't allow boys to wear blue jeans or white T-shirts, and girls couldn't wear any sort of pants at all. Gotta preserve those gender roles to keep the commies at bay!

    Even more recently you saw things like towns passing laws banning "saggy pants" though that was more intended as subtle racism than anything else.

      Yeah, my mother was basically Scout (To Kill A Mockingbird). She climbed trees, she stole and wore her brother's jeans. She was even besties with the people the Country Club refused entry to (Jews and anybody that wasn't white).

      Her dad thought it was amusing but really he didn't care what she wore or who she made friends with. Her mother, on the other hand, went ballistic every time she didn't dress like a five year old or dared to talk to "one of Them", and frequently spewed so much venom during Sunday Service and that gathering of like-minded social assassins that when mom came of age (which coincided with her seeing the reality of 'Nam and what it was doing to her friends) she crossed the ocean to the saner side and never looked back.

      I can expect a fair few of these well educated English speaking IT types to outsource themselves permanently, if Xi takes away the Circus.

      It's not going to possible to be part of the global market for services and not end up sharing at least some of the global common culture.

    All the intellectual property that was stolen finally becoming some use then...

    "We will create more possibilities for cooperation, by scaling up support for the growth of the services sector in Belt and Road partner countries and by sharing China's technological achievements with the rest of the world," Xi said.

    I can well imagine some of the Belt and Road partner governments being interested in Chinese government technological "achievements" that are deployed on Chinese citizens
