Having already instituted and Orwellian policy of marking new knives with QR tracking codes in an effort to thwart knife attacks by Uyghur separatists, Chinese authorities are taking a low-tech approach as well. They are chaining knives to workstations in the butcher-shops in at least one market in the Xinjiang Province. As we have discussed ad infinitum no […]
In an effort to counter the rash of knife attacks in Xinjiang Province, the Chinese government has instituted a series of policies that would make Orwell blush.
