Scuse me, but isn’t harassment and censorship part of the communist manifesto?
Seems the Vietnamese would get doses of those anyway.
It would appear that Facebook, U-tube, et. al, need to have their legal status changed and be held to traditional journalistic responsibilities.
Hey they are just trying to make a living.
Just imagine what they’d do to us, if so instructed…
Hate to say this, but this article reads like something from the Washington Post.
I’m open to additional information on the matter, but I have yet to hear anyone living in Vietnam including fellow leftists, including Vietnamese ones, ever refer to Vietnam as “repressive”. In fact, it is a really nice place to live and has transformed itself from war-ravaged poverty to broadly shared prosperity over only 3 decades…
…and we don’t hear much from the dissident Chinese either - at least the live ones. In these regimes a complaint essentially signs the death warrants for you and your family.
Perhaps you and @Senior_Citizen_71 missed this article about attacks on journalists in Vietnam here at CD.
Yes I remember it, but as I recall there haven’t been any attacks on U-Tube of Facebook workers. Why? because they tow the government line. The only control over social media that government needs is to absolutely restrict censorship and require absolute privacy.
Agree, and my reply was focused more towards @Yunzer, who seems to believe Vietnam is “a really nice place to live”.
