Why Is Mark Zuckerberg Giving Communist Propaganda to Facebook Staff?

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerburg has been the brunt of a few jokes about China lately, and one of them is for urging his employees to read a new book of speeches by Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The Governance of China is the book that Zuckerberg is recommending to colleagues, and it’s a well-known fact that Xi is a Maoist. This begs the question: Why is Zuckerberg kowtowing to the Chinese regime?

Facebook is one of America’s most successful recent Internet ventures. It shows the power of freedom, capitalism, and entrepreneurship. Its co-founder and CEO is a big proponent of freedom as well. On July 4th Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook page:

“July 4th is a day to celebrate our freedom and the sacrifices made to defend these ideals in the United States. It’s also a moment to think about the millions of people across the world still fighting for their own freedom. It’s inspiring to reflect on the role the internet has played in helping people fight for their freedom.

It’s important to keep working until one day the whole world can be free, open, and connected.

If he believes this then why support the Communist Party? China doesn’t have a free Internet as made evident by the fact that Facebook, Google, or any other site that doesn’t want to be censored don’t exist there.

In fact, China is the exact opposite of everything Zuckerberg talked about on July 4th. The millions (actually 1.357 billion) of people there don’t have freedom and are still fighting for it, they don’t have free use of the Internet to help them, and it’s starting to look like they also don’t have one of the biggest Internet brand names supporting them either.
