NatSec online

The offshore 8964 Museum website is reportedly being blocked. And you can try for yourself here. There are degrees of Internet censorship, and experts say this example (government asking ISPs to block a site) is the least creepy and easy to circumvent, if that’s any consolation.

Never mind – you’ve still got RTHK, provided you don’t mind Xinhua propaganda presented without mention of its provenance.

Also in online NatSec news, heavy handed and apparently selective anti-doxxing action.

In the interests of sanity-preservation, just some links…

HKFP on Hong Kong prison authorities’ problems with political prisoners and M&Ms. 

A site called Naked Capitalism on why HSBC is – possibly – screwed.

Scholars Stage on Xi Jinping’s ’pivot to the state’

What do K-pop fan groups, after school tutoring companies, Meituan delivery men, online algorithms, plastic surgeons, overheated housing markets, celebrity ranking lists, and tech monopolies have in common?

…Each [crackdown] targets an industry that seems to strip people of their agency and rob them of their dignity. Each seems to hijack healthy behavior with a set of short term incentives whose end results are self destructive and degrading.

A summary of People’s Daily article ‘Why we can succeed’. The answer, of course, is the CCP – without which Chinese would be starving and enslaved by evil foreigners. Speaking of whom: ’the British are bastards’, and other CCP views of the world.

On a literally brighter note: Hong Kong’s most beautiful and glamorous expat community, yellow-crested cockatoos – a common sight from my own apartment.

    To further entrench themselves as hateful, distrusted and the enemy, the HKCCPSAR gov’t just can’t see that the continual administration of “justice” or policy unevenly across the board (doxxing cases, stabbing of Odious Whore, any and all else) is no different that own goals/shooting oneself in the foot and is a guaranteed way to keep the flame of hatred lit.

    Intentional or simply childish stupidity? Definitely a way to feed an insurgency.

    8964 Museum, VPN is your friend

    I guess they have more than one name, but I thought they were called Sulphur-crested cockatoos, based on their latin name.

    But M&Ms are AMERICAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Perhaps our Cor Services have never heard of Mars. Moreover they are low end product. The prisoners concerned have not been tried and convicted so surely deserve an upgrade, perhaps the dreaded Ferrero or Godiva?

  5. Cassowary says:

    @donkey: yellow-crested and sulphur-crested cockatoos are separate species. The yellow-crested being slightly smaller and native to only a few islands in Indonesia. They are critically endangered, while their sulphur-crested cousins are considered an urban pest in Australia.

    I can access the virtual museum from work – at a university in Hong Kong.

    RTHK’s headline writer still slips the odd touch of sarcasm through occasionally…

    Yes, I see how Taiwan is starving and enslaved without the glorious leadership of the CCP and the great helmsman Shit Jumping

    Those new RTHK guidelines make interesting reading. Filled with exciting stuff, such as:
    Pursuant to the Preamble of the Constitution of the PRC ,“Taiwan is part of the sacred territory of the People’s Republic of China. It is the inviolable duty of all Chinese people, including our compatriots in Taiwan, to accomplish the great task of reunifying the motherland”
    Quick question: In relation to the above, WTF are “Qian’s Seven principles”?

    Just saying: ‘Shit Jumping’ has overtaken ‘Stinky Ping’ on the lol o’ meter.

  11. Dissident Name Systems server says:

    Cloudflare’s DNS still works, so it’s time to switch (and as a bonus to being able to read the naughty stuff, slightly obfuscate what you’re reading from your babylon-beholden ISP):
    Set your DNS servers to 1.1.1.1 & 1.0.0.1 and (in the unlikely event your knuckle-dragging HK ISP has actually implemented that decade-old tech IPv6) 2606:4700:4700::1111 & 2606:4700:4700::1001.
