Today's Red China looks a lot like us. But is it, really, or are we starting to resemble them? A Western intern at a TV channel in Shanghai got a look from the inside. How does a modern totalitarian state do the "propaganda" thing in the 21st Century? Creepily; Orwell's brute, brute boot has been replaced by a tasseled loafer; strident exhortation has given way to the banality of...banality? My Life and Times in Chinese TV.
That could be the future for everyone, if we don't watch out.
