The Western internet is presented as a ‘free’ and ‘impartial’ space, where individuals can post what they want, when they want to. However, this is a myth. Virtually all social media platforms in the West are directly controlled by the US government behind the scenes, and adopt a default position of being antagonistic toward China, and dedicated to undermining China’s Socialist System. Indeed, the US-controlled internet is aggressive toward all Socialist Systems, and seeks to establish and maintain predatory capitalism and worldwide exploitation of the masses! This is why Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are ‘banned’ within Mainland China as they are perceived as being representatives of detrimental US foreign policy! WeChat is a worldwide social media platform developed from within Mainland China and accessible worldwide. With a WeChat account, internet users in the West can communicate directly with an unlimited number of people living in China. WeChat is different to both Facebook and Twitter in that each user directly controls who can see their content (as this technology is not open ended). The WeChat user must actively ‘add’ each individual that they want to ‘see’ their content, with options to ‘add’ members whilst still maintaining privacy. Individuals can create private chatlogs between two individuals or create and/or join ‘Groups’ which entertain numerous posters all reading and sharing one another’s content (usually premised around a common theme). An individual user can also post daily activities in the ‘Moments’ section which can remain private, or viewable by those chosen to do so. WeChat also facilitates worldwide telephone and video-calling. Although users are required to follow the laws of Mainland China, from a practical position, this only applies to Chinese Citizens. Of course, those accessing WeChat from outside of China will have their behaviour monitored by WeChat users living in China, who are assumed to be guardians of the law. The Chinese people possess a very strong sense of law and order and of obeying the government. In all my time of using WeChat, I have respected the law and culture of China from my home in South London, and have experienced a far greater of posting expression within WeChat than I have on Facebook, Twitter or YouTube, all of which actively pursue an open and vindictive rightwing agenda. It has been through the WeChat social media platform of Mainland China that I have experienced a true and genuine ‘freedom of expression’ and ‘freedom of speech’.
Western governments outside the US allow the US to aggressively pursue its neo-imperialist and neo-liberal policies within their geographical boundaries, as such a passive acquiescence is often linked to favourable trade deals with the US, and money lending through the US-controlled World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) – all predatory capitalist entities. Furthermore, if Westen (and other countries) allow the US to ride rough-shod over their sovereignty and local law, such a surrender of self-determination ensures the US does not apply economic sanctions, or manipulates the UN to do so or make war on some over fallacious issue. Neo-Nazi Ukraine and Zionist Israel fully confirms to this status quo and so are fully supported by the US (even when acting illegally), whilst modern (capitalist) Russia does not, and so pays the price for its independent attitude, which is perceived as ‘resisting’ US hegemony. Bizarrely, modem Russia, despite being ‘capitalist’, is treated by US rhetoric as if it were still a Communist State! Communist China is, of course, a ‘Communist State’ and its Communist Party fully understands the bourgeois nature of US aggressiveness and the game it is playing by packaging restrictive US hegemony as being the only ‘freedom’ worth having! This US contrived ‘non-freedom’ is very much a manifestation of US anti-intellectualism, and is brainwashed into the world population through corrupt academia, dishonest advertising and corrupt business practices. This is the ideology of interpreting the space within the prison cell as being the only ‘freedom’ worth having!
The communication app designed in Mainland China has two versions. Within the Chinese domestic market, the simplified app is known as ‘Weixin’ (微信), or ‘micro-message’, whereas the more technologically complex international version (which has spread throughout the world) is known as ‘WeChat’. This system of ‘communication through small text’ is designed primarily for use on mobile telephones, with a limited capability on desk-top computers (although this may only apply to the international version which allows ‘chatting’ on-screen, but not ‘moment’ updating). Wherever China has exported WeChat, her designers and lawyers have been very careful to maintain privacy and safety of the users, whilst the app fully conforms to regional laws. This means that the Chinese business that administer WeChat are very careful to safeguard the legal sovereignty of each country outside of China they operate within. This means that every user benefits from the legal safeguards of the PRC by default, unless the local or regional laws contradict or improve on these laws. At no time does PRC law supersede (by default) the local law of the sovereign country the WeChat app is operating within. Of course, China’s influence in this area goes no further than the function of the communication app she administers. China, unlike the US, does not link the spread of its social media platforms with the granting or withholding of business contracts or the issue of threats of war (or application of sanctions) through UN or market manipulation. Whereas Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, etc, actively pursue racist anti-China and anti-Socialist policies, WeChat does not pursue an openly anti-US stance contrived and controlled by the Chinese government. In this regard, whereas US social media is a continuation of US foreign policy by other means, WeChat is a truly ‘neutral’ and ‘impartial’ social media platform.
