Just curious, though, my sense is that the PRC folks actually are somewhat ignorant of it all, it's only the educated and foreigners with who China is being "honest" about it. Am I wrong?
hedwards: The difference is that they don't bother lying about it like the US government does. The Chinese never had any concept of privacy previously, so they didn't lose any. But in the US we did have privacy and the government is constantly looking for ways around that without people knowing about it.
