"Learning to Attack in Order to Defend"
This week we recommend reading this 《问答神州》interview with Fang Binxing (方滨兴), former Principal of Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications known for his contribution to China's Internet censorship infrastructure. He is also known as the "Father of China's Great Fire Wall."
In the Q&A , Fang states, "很多地方的老师不太懂攻击，也不太敢教攻击。但是你不知道攻击，就不知道怎么防御。" He also expresses that "globalization has been kidnapped by politics" (全球化逐渐被政治绑架) and discusses how this influences China's internet access.
