According to an investigation by the Guardian, NYT, and Germany’s Süddeutsche Zeitung, the ’secret’ app allows for personal information to be downloaded.

The legacy of communism is distrust. Distrust of your fellow citizens therefore complete distrust of strangers. This applies more to the people in fragile and tenuous positions of authority. This is the madness of irrationality driven by emotions that is crippling the civilized democratic developed world. The world that refuses to recognize that it lost the cold war through not dealing with the long march through the institutions. Political correctness is cultural Marxism. You are a victim whether you realise it or not. What the communists unleashed was an intellectual time bomb, the repercussions are now in the process of destroying civilization. You may be unwittingly enabling and speeding the process.

I don’t think as a foreigner you would be allowed to even visit the Xingjiang province mentioned in the “report.” Do your research before spreading the Black Death.

Suddenly when Israel wants China to stop buying Iranian oil we are allowed to call out China for bad behaviour. We need to purge our governments of traitors and hostile aliens.
