China Charts a Course in Cyber Space

August 19, 2018

I am not much a political thinker. But even with the minimal knowledge I possess about world affairs, it seems to me that China has made its cyber technology objective clear. Of course, I am assuming that the information in “When China Rules the Web” is accurate. You will have to judge for yourself.

The write up states:

Chinese President Xi Jinping has outlined his plans to turn China into a “cyber-superpower.”

My reaction to this statement was to ask this question, “When US companies make changes in order to sell to China, does that mean those companies are helping to make the Chinese cyber space vision a reality?”

There are other questions swirling through my mind, and I need time to sort them out. Companies define the US to a large part. If the companies go one way, will other components of the US follow?

Worth considering. A stated policy that is being implemented is different from a less purposeful approach.
