China Blocks Google to Stifle Online Dissent Ahead of Nation's 60th Anniversary

Who says information, ideas, and images aren't powerful? Just ask Iran. Now China sees the writing on the wall. Regarding the porn, I am all for getting rid of that--for the good of humanity (I think it could be argued that this is a human rights issue because of what it does to people, families, and ultimately societies). "Desire" and "Freedom" must be subordinated to the Good. But something tells me China is not ultimately concerned with porn blocking. You can read for yourself...

I love the way the Foreign Minister phrases it, "According to complaints from many residents, Google's English-language search engine has spread large amounts of vulgar content that is lascivious and pornographic,..". 'Many residents' in China could be a hundred thousand (though I doubt it's that much), which is about .0001% of the population. It's laughable. The icing on the cake is blaming it all on "those English-speakers".
