China’s much-feared internet addiction treatment centres are set to become a little less grim for inmates after it was revealed that any instructors found to be using physical violence would be stripped of their job. China was one of the first countries in the world to recognise the peculiarly modern affliction as a …
One of those 'Cure is worse than the disease' situations.

Justifying Internet censorship
Isn't interesting how red china jumped to internet addiction bandwagon yet they never talked about tv addiction, or its harmful affect on human being?
Hint: Communist party control media but not world wide Internet.
Good means to lower over population
These ignorant people need to learn the hard way as they are too dumb to learn any other way.
