Good This is actually a pretty decent way to cut down on game addiction. It might seem like it's a lot, but in all honesty, having almost 14 hours of online gaming time a week is more than enough for a child IMO.
Off-topic: the amount of people who are spewing garbage about and against China, without knowing a single fact, is just daunting. Some of the garbage that people are peddling are downright xenophobic. What has this site become?
Ah the inevitable devil's advocate.
I think you're the one a bit misguided about the CCP. This is not about China as a whole or its people, it's about an oppressive Totaliitarian government who literally beats and shoots dissenters in the streets, they've shot a woman's eye out for protesting for Hong Kong, they keep Chinese muslims in literal concentration camps, they keep a creepy level of tabs on their own population and monitor them, and now apparently they are even acting like the dictatorial parents of their own population by putting heavy restrictions on their gaming time. This is straight up Dystopian and it's creepy. The only thing I'm "phobic" of is totalitarianism, of a government who can't even grasp the simple concept of liberty, "live and let live," or hell, basic human rights for that matter - no matter WHERE it crops up.
Look, nobody is questioning the heavy handedness or brutality that is being used on a daily basis, but let's not point fingers at China, when there are plenty of mutilations going on in the west as well. Or we simply like to ignore the same sittuations in Spain and France, and let's not forget military grade responses in places like Ferguson, when even the slightest form of dissent is shown a full-blown military response. Also, we do not have concentration camps for muslims, as we do n ot need them. We let our allies keep them on regional lockdown in misserable conditions, so we can pretend that our hands are clean.
For everybody who thinks that I am misrepresenting the xenophobic feelings towards chines, or what that means, I am not. I am well aware what it means and what it entails but honestly with the current sittuation in Hong Kong most people call it a them vs us (as the freedom loving part of the world) sittuation. Them being the chinese government, whch like it or not , has the support of the mainland population. Remember, a government without popular support cannot last, and China has plenty of it, and no matter what people are preaching, it has one of the most stable governments since the cold war. Is it hard to grasp it from our point of view? Sure, we were raised on different cultural values.As somebody who was raised in a pos-communist country (Romania) I know how much freedom means, and I value it dearly.
But please do tell about your freedom concerns to those close to one billion people who were taken out from complete poverty in the last half century, and explain to them how horrible their sittuation is, now that they can actually afford somewhat decent living conditions. I bet they even know that the coun try is not perfect, but when will a 1.3 billion country ever be?
Look, if trying to be somewhat ojective makes me the devil's advocate, so be it, but I really do wish that people would not treat this sittuation so extremely one-sided without giving it even the slightest benefit of doubt. I think we could all learn a bit from doing so.
