Q: Angry Birds is subversive content

I can understand blocking Pinterest. I mean, we wouldn't want people reading romantic poems or getting ideas of how to decorate a home, plan a wedding, or make enjoyable lessons. But now it seems our benevolent friends in Beijing are protecting us from apps. Anyone else having trouble accessing ALL content from outside the mainland?

China will completely block access to much of the global internet as part of a sweeping crackdown aimed at suppressing dissent and maintaining the Communist party’s grip on power.

The government has ordered China’s three telecommunications companies to completely block access to virtual private networks, or VPNs, by February 2018, Bloomberg News reported, citing anonymous sources. The three internet providers, China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom, are all state-owned.

A:Hmmm - I'm sure I answered this (and some other posts...). What you don't seem to get is that an older population is bad for a country... the expenses in looking after the elderly (welfare, hospitals, etc) start taking up more of the tax cake - a cake that's getting smaller because there are less people contributing to it (ie, workers). From an earth impact perspective - good! But from most other perspectives - bad. -- Shining_brow
