China’s Losing War on Pornography: Part 2 of 3

I’ve written about piety and what it means to the Chinese, and I’ve written about heroes from China’s history that the Chinese still honor. Now I’m going to write about some of China’s modern day heroes.

I’ve read complaints about China’s control over the Internet and media. The Western media and China’s critics/enemies love to hate the CCP’s attempt to control content on the Internet. Imagine, not being able to practice Yellow Journalism with a potential audience of 1.3 billion. Think of all the newspapers and magazines that could be sold to such a vast audience if the CCP would relax its controls over the media in China.


If you did not read Part One, you may want to go there now to learn about pornography in the United States.

In early 2010, I read an example of Chinese common sense the rest of the world might have learned from.

In the war against pornography, China recruited moms. Who better to protect children? Even most Westerners should agree that child pornography is not a good thing. Polluting the minds of and abusing young people and making money off them should be ranked alongside heroin or crack with a death sentence or at last a life sentence after castration.


Child Porn on Facebook

Since I’m married to a Chinese mother, and I know how dedicated Chinese moms are to their children, I’d rather have a U.S. Marine parked on my butt and I wrote, “Beware pornographers. You may have met your match.”

However, while updating and adding to this topic, I learned that even China’s famous tiger mothers may not be enough to stem the tide of pornography as you shall discover in Part 3.
