China's Big Brother Blocks NCT.com
China is a communist country with over 1.31 billion people.
The majority of China's 1.31 billion people are oppressed and don't enjoy the freedoms we have here in the United States of America.
China commits many human rights violations.
China is well loved by American corporations and American consumers because the majority of the 1.31 Chinese will work for pennies on the dollar. This means cheap stuff for us to buy at places like Wal*Mart.
Because we love low prices we Americans seem to turn a blind eye to communist China. This is despite that China is an emerging superpower with nuclear weapons. China's human rights violations rival that of Saddam Hussein's Iraq.
Our endless thirst for low quality and low cost goods is creating an unprecedented economic growth in China that is unsustainable. This threatens not only China's environment but the world's. National Geographic link
China's prime minister recently promised to maintain "socialism for 100 years"
China has a totalitarian style of government and China's 1.31 billion citizens do not enjoy freedom of religion or freedom of the press. A good example of this is a website called Great Firewall of China where you can test to see if your favorite websites are blocked by Chinese censors.

The website of our local paper, The North County Times is blocked. You absolutely cannot access NCT.com from China.
