    That’s the Vietnamese government for you. Such blatant overreach and I’ve seen little discourse on this issue. So many people blindly trust it because national unity/national security/patriotism or whatever. If you dare to oppose the government, they’re taking you to the police station for questioning. There’s basically no press freedom and internet freedom is shit as well so where the hell are people going to get differing opinions? All the articles I’ve read are simply parroting the government. This shit would never fly in a democracy. The writing has been on the wall for a long time. I’ll be finding ways to get tf out of here

      This kind of thing is happening all over. The UK is a well-known western surveillance state. Here in the US, (in my state at least) we are required to give thumbprints for a drivers license. Entering the US at many locations now entails fingerprint and facial scans. All governments will trend towards more total information/control.

      And that’s the same for other government. Dirty CIA propaganda.

      Most are the guy who want to drive when they are drunk.

      Old people know about those who oppose the government. I don’t believe you live in Vietnam.

      My grandma (previously, a nurse) comment about people who oppose the government: “Cái bọn ấy thì cháu đừng dây vào chúng nó làm gì. Chúng nó ăn cơm nhà nước rồi lại quay ra nói xấu nhà nước.”

      There’s basically no press freedom and internet freedom

      We still worry day and night that young people are being pro-Western and pro-Chinese. Are you still saying that we don’t have internet freedom??

      See the attitude of some people on voz (Điểm báo) whenever a police rescued a little girl.

      There’s absolutely no free speech and free press, since free speech and free press are unrestricted speech and press, under no law, people there can say whatever they want. Even american don’t even have it, they just allow people to insult other by whatever sentence. Viet Nam is more restrictive: insulting others are not allowed.

      Knowledgeable person actually understand the consequence of unrestricted freedom. They are educated. Not like anyone want to comment on other government’s policy without actually living in it and understand it.

      About internet freedom: we already have it for years. Before 2018, anyone can set up a social media site if they want, but now they will need to register for it. That’s equivalent to the business law: if you want to set up a company, you must register what your company do.
