Q: Who is the most dangerous man in the world?

A powerful statement to make, but probably true. His inbred cousin Kim would be runner-up for the title. Democracy will never take root with such a man at the helm:

Billionaire investor George Soros slammed Chinese President Xi Jinping as “the most dangerous enemy” to those who believe in open society and warned against Beijing’s high-tech surveillance regime.

“China is not the only authoritarian regime in the world but it is the wealthiest, strongest and technologically most advanced,” the progressive political activist said Thursday at a private dinner during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

“This makes Xi Jinping the most dangerous opponent of open societies,” added.

The Hungarian-born philanthropist’s comments came as China plans a broad ranking system to monitor its citizens, issuing them a social credit score.

“I want to call attention to the mortal danger facing open societies from the instruments of control that machine learning and artificial intelligence can put in the hands of repressive regimes,” Soros said, according to CNBC.

“The social credit system is not yet fully operational, but it’s clear where it’s heading. It will subordinate the fate of the individual to the interests of the one-party state in ways unprecedented in history,” he added.

On Friday, China dismissed Soros’ remarks.

Soros “confused right and wrong in a meaningless statement, and it is not worth refuting,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a regular press briefing.

“In today’s world, it is clear who is opening doors and building roads, and who is closing doors and building walls,” she said. “We hope that the relevant people on the US side can … take an objective, rational, and correct attitude towards China’s development.”

China has said it would create the system by 2020 to reward or punish citizens and corporations, using technology to record various measures of financial credit, personal behavior and corporate misdeeds.

The system’s rollout has attracted international attention, sparking comparisons to George Orwell’s novel “Nineteen Eighty-Four,” with critics arguing that it could increase the ruling Communist Party’s already strict control.

Some experts say the system could help tackle social problems like fraud or food security.

China Responds To George Soros

 

"Statements by certain people, which portray black as white and distort facts, are completely pointless and not worthy of even a rebuttal."

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
