According to a report released by the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, the People’s Republic of China actively targets dissidents inside the US.
Some of the espionage carried out on behalf of China is conducted by nonprofessional collectors. These nonprofessional collectors may be motivated by profit, patriotism, feelings of ethnic kinship, or coercion. Even in many cases where there is no obvious direct state involvement in the theft or illegal export of controlled technology, the Chinese government encourages such efforts and has benefited from them. Recent cases of espionage involving China show evidence of more focused efforts at information collection employing sources outside of the Chinese-American community. Chinese operatives and consular officials are actively engaged in the surveillance and harassment of Chinese dissident groups on U.S. soil.
Do you have a problem in being told what you can believe by a foreign government?
If so, I encourage everyone to be a dissident so that the Chinese Communist Party can have more people to watch and spend more money on watching them.
