Chinese-made Phones Can Automatically Censor Your Texts

At least according to Lithuania. Lithuania's defense ministry told people to throw away Chinese-made phones, claiming they can automatically censor people's texts

  • Lithuania told people to trash their Chinese-made phones "as fast as reasonably possible."
  • It said some phones, like Xiaomi's Mi 10T 5G phone, can censor terms like "democracy movement."

The features are "turned off" outside of China, but can be turned back on remotely.

Discussions about the pro-independence movement in Tibet, sovereignty of Taiwan, and pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong are highly sensitive subjects in China. Those terms are heavily censored on Chinese social media, and people who discuss these topics are punished.

Sounds disturbingly like what the Left says should happen to people who question the Sacred Vaccine™.

  1. That is my worry about the technique used in the Texas Abortion Law.

    It is a rare individual who can withstand a harassment suit even if you have absolute evidence of an "unpopular" truth. Fight and the best you can hope for is bankruptsy; ignore the suit and get bankruptsy by default. There is no win for John Q. Public. Normally "opinion" is protected since no one has "standing" to sue you. Allowing any Joe Blow to sue about "untruth" (opinion) will stop discussion. That is non-governmental action and thus not prohibited by the Constitution. The Texas Abortion Law opens a dangerous can of worms that can be used to neuter personal freedoms.
