Censorship

"China Rebuffs Clinton on Internet Warning"

Ma Zhaoxu, a Chinese spokesman, says, "The Chinese Internet is open." That's a damn lie. You have to spend something like sixty bucks a year to get a VPN in order to bypass China's block on a lot of sites.

A Chinese coworker of mine defends the government's censorship, claiming that the Chinese people are like little kids. You can't just give them all their freedoms right away, she says. They wouldn't know what to do.
