Can China continue to control the flow of information?
Question: Can China continue to control the flow of information?
Philippe Cayla: China is a dictator, as you know. So they behave as a dictator. I think … I think we don’t have to compromise with China. If they make some restrictions, it’s good that we offer the Chinese people the possibility to bypass this restriction as much as we can. It’s a question of democracy. But I think that China’s government is in its right in some sense. The government has a right to do it, but it’s not democratic. And it should be challenged by the west.
