On February 25, 2018, China banned the letter ‘N’ on it’s citizens’ internet usage. Why? Word have just gotten out that China’s government was looking at dropping the term limits for its President, which would allow Xi Jinping to stay in power indefinitely. By banning the letter N, it would stop protesters from posting N>2, where N is understood to equal the number of terms in office. By banning the letter N, the censors also banned such words as ‘China’, ‘business’, and ‘happiness’. It was a classic case of cutting off your nose to spite your face. The ban only lasted a day. Donald Trump heard about it later and asked his people why he couldn’t ban the words ‘tiny’ and ‘’hands’. They told him they’d look at it as they set up his toy soldiers for that afternoon’s play-date with Bob Barr.
