Re: fake facts
is quite distant from the Chinese government
You fail to understand how a Red Theocracy (usually erroneously called communism) works.
1. There is the official social and business hierarchy. On that one most Chinese companies today (and some Soviet Block companies, especially outside USSR 20 years ago) look at arm's length.
2. There is the communist party hierarchy. The Magisterium. It can and does override No 1. On that one, the distance is negligible.
3. There is the security apparatus hierarchy. It can and does override 1 and 2, but it usually stays hidden.
4. There is the communist party hierarchy of the security apparatus. You hardly ever see that unless it is the night of the long knives at the top like the USSR post-Brezhnev transitions.
The fact that officially a particular Chinese company today (or Soviet Block company in the 80-es) look at arms length is not relevant as long as the communist party committees inside have any say in anything. And they do. Any Chinese businessmen who claims the opposite is welcome to disown in writing the Communist Party. I will buy the popcorn.
