Global Capitalism and Social Control: The Power and Resistance in China’s Postsocialist Blogosphere

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study explores the implication of blogging in the Post-socialist China on the country’s social changes, cultural characteristics, and political empowerment within the contexts of the gaze through the panoptic and synoptic structures. Political apathy is found in China’s blogosphere that may be attributable in part to the government’s surveillance and censorship policies. However, global capitalism has brought an influx of personal wealth to China’s middle-class bloggers. Blogging brings them to the intellectual based market as the form of the interaction between powerful individuals and capitalism. The ideology of voluntary transparency which accompanies the electronic surveillance of citizens’ every move is one more form of paradoxical consequences; consequences being a type of ontological two-dimensionality that is perhaps best expressed through the popularity of synopticonism and the lack of depth in the structure of information dissemination online, in which the subjects are completely commoditized and reified in China’s late economic liberalization.
