Never give an order you know won't be obeyed ...
I welcome the decree by the PRC government to limit the time teenagers in China can spend on online games to three hours a week, at sp[ecified times on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening.
But not for the reasons the people who imposed the policy would have had in mind.
I welcome this because it brings forward the day when the Chinese Communist Party no longer monopolise government in that country.
If they can make this policy stick - which I very much doubt - they will have instilled in a lot of tech-savvy young Chinese a resentment of the over-mighty state.
More likely they will find they are teaching those young people how to disobey.
In the long run neither bodes well for the regime.
