The US government has been guilty of the same in the past. The European expansion on the North American continent was accompanied by (arguably) the greatest genocide in recorded history.

China forces birth control on Uighurs to suppress population

China's foreign ministry said on Saturday the United States needed to stop the "unreasonable suppression" of Chinese companies like Huawei, and a Chinese newspaper said the government was ready to retaliate against Washington.

The Trump administration on Friday moved to block global chip supplies to blacklisted telecoms equipment company Huawei Technologies, spurring fears of Chinese retaliation and hammering shares of US producers of chipmaking equipment.

Benefit of central planning?  I dont know.

The Washington Post has a fascinating story about how in China research is being done that could result in an enormous technological leap ahead of the United States.

The research means that “hacking-resistant communications networks” are being built across China, sensors are being designed “to see through smog and around corners,” and prototypes are being build of “computers that may someday smash the computational power of any existing machine.

“All the gear is based on quantum technology — an emerging field that could transform information processing and confer big economic and national-security advantages to countries that dominate it. To the dismay of some scientists and officials in the United States, China’s formidable investment is helping it catch up with Western research in the field and, in a few areas, pull ahead … Beijing is pouring billions into research and development and is offering Chinese scientists big perks to return home from Western labs. China’s drive has sparked calls for more R&D funding in the United States.”

The story defines quantum technology as seeking “to harness the distinct properties of atoms, photons and electrons to build more powerful tools for processing information.”

The Post writes that “last year, China had nearly twice as many patent filings as the United States for quantum technology overall, a category that includes communications and cryptology devices, according to market research firm Patinformatics. The United States, though, leads the world in patents relating to the most prized segment of the field — quantum computers — thanks to heavy investment by IBM, Google, Microsoft and others.”

In a recent report from the Center for a New American Security, it was said that “the United States must be prepared for a future in which its traditional technological predominance faces new, perhaps unprecedented challenges.”

It is an Eye Opening piece (and you can read the story in its entirety here). Quantum technology is way, way, way above my pay grade, but it seems to me that this story has a lot of implications that have nothing to do with technology.

welcome to the digital panopticon...

Leave no dark corner

China is building a digital dictatorship to exert control over its 1.4 billion citizens. For some, “social credit” will bring privileges — for others, punishment.

What may sound like a dystopian vision of the future is already happening in China. And it’s making and breaking lives.

The Communist Party calls it “social credit” and says it will be fully operational by 2020.

Within years, an official Party outline claims, it will “allow the trustworthy to roam freely under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step”.

Terracotta theft: Chinese anger over stolen warrior thumb
According to court documents, Mr Rohana, 24, was attending an Ugly Sweater Party at the Franklin Institute on 21 December when he made his way into the Terracotta Warriors exhibit, which was then closed.  Mr Rohana allegedly used a mobile phone as a torch and took a selfie with one of the warriors, according to Chinese state media Xinhua, quoting the FBI.  He then allegedly put his hand on the left hand of the statue and appeared to break something off from it. He pocketed the item and left.

Worse, Huawei is a huge manufacturer that makes tons of simpler devices, wireless or Bluetooth enabled, that could easily be used to collect information (read: spy) on anyone, anywhere. All those cool smart-home gadgets, where do you think they come from? I doubt the Chinese government cares what kind of mayonnaise I prefer, but it's no stretch to think they could collect sensitive, even classified, information.
