China Launches New App Allowing Citizens To Report Others For
Expressing "Mistaken Opinions"

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

China’s Communist government has launched a new app that encourages
citizens to report dissidents for expressing “mistaken opinions” on
the Internet.

The new platform will target anyone who criticizes the dictatorship’s
ruling CCP, disputes the official version of the country’s history or
engages in “misinformation.”

The new website and app was proudly unveiled by China’s Cyberspace
Administration of China (CAC), with authorities calling on users to
play an “active role” in helping to identify “malicious people
distorting facts and confusing” others.

    “For a while now, some people with ulterior motives…have spread
historically nihilistic false statements online, maliciously
distorting, slandering and denying Party, national and military
history in an attempt to confuse people’s thinking,” the announcement

    “We hope that most internet users will play an active role in
supervising society…and enthusiastically report harmful information.”

As Didi Rankovic notes, “It’s also unsurprising because it comes ahead
of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist
Party (CPP), when messages and narratives will have to be kept
particularly “clean.”

China already operates an onerous social credit score system that bans
people from using transportation and engaging in other basic functions
of society if they commit minor infractions like jaywalking or buying
too much junk food.

Given that social media mobs in the west, routinely aided by
journalists, already conduct witch hunts that lead to people being
socially ostracized, deplatformed and left unemployed for expressing
“mistaken opinions,” are we really that better off than Chinese
