Kids today. Here's what Mark Zuckerberg had to say when asked how Facebook's plans to expand into China would affect the company's open communication platform:
"I don't want Facebook to be an American company," he said. "I don't want it to be this company that just spreads American values all across the world. ...For example, we have this notion of free speech that we really love and support at Facebook, and that's one of the main things that we're trying to push with openness. But different countries have their different standards around that. ...My view on this is that you want to be really culturally sensitive and understand the way that people actually think."
Nice to know that this is the sort of deep thinking that billionaire Obama supporters are coming up with. Free speech, you see, is this quaint "notion" (like American Exceptionalism, probably) that shouldn't have any effect on Facebook's business, even though it's the most important factor in its success. If people at Facebook sit around wondering why they've had so much trouble building trust, they may want to reconsider their blithe attitudes about basic values like privacy and free speech.
Only Discharge can clear this up:
