Politics and the Chinese language

I doubt if I’ll have time for any ‘serious’ blogging here but for now I might use this place for organizing and recollecting some of my tweets – or, fragments of thought in the time of fragmentation. Today’s theme is politics and the Chinese language, including political “newspeak”, internet slang terms, and some other stuff.

If interested I also wrote something about how censorship has corrupted the Chinese language on my 中文博客.
