Free Market vs Repression in China

I am not yet sure how I am going to do it, but I always have my AP Comp students work on "issues" relating to each of the six comp countries and couple them with terms that the kids have to learn. One of the issues I am thinking of doing is the fact that they have both incredibly big and successful companies coupled with repression of freedoms.  Part of that might include using the short above on China's most successful company - Alibaba - which went public today.  While it is not a household name here, it is as large or larger than any US based Internet company than Google.
