A totalitarian one, by Western opinion, but that's just their culture and their mindset. Their emphasis is on the good of the society and the body politick, with very little emphasis on the individual. So it’s seen as a good thing “for the People”. “Individual” rights is just being selfish and probably suspicious. It's an ultra-conservative paradise, "If you don't have anything to hide then you should have nothing to worry about." Another way of looking at it is in some human interest news stories I’ve heard about China, you can criticize any Party member you want, but what you can't do, what is forbidden, is criticizing the Party, because the Party is the people, and whatever is good for the Party, who is the government, is good for the people.
But that’s just one Westerner’s viewpoint. I would welcome anyone who has lived or living in the region or from the region to comment please…….
Hikvision is now a major global force in the business and their mindset about how surveillance can and should be used is fascinating.
Agree. Case in point, the following fluff:
I don't know about you but 'Kotoka International' doesn't look all that secure here, looking more like a back-dock looting in progress, than the 'highest accreditedation in the industry'.
How can they think this projects a favorable image?
