Tyrants of Beijing Claim Internet Controls Do Not Lead to Arrests. Really? "Chinese people can freely access the Internet and the government has never arrested anyone for expressing an opinion on the Web, an official state newspaper said on Wednesday."
Oh really? That's an interesting point of view... that is, if you consider a falsehood to be a point of view.
"International human rights organizations and freedom of speech advocates have launched a campaign against US Internet giants Google and Yahoo for providing tools to Chinese censors and secret police. In September 2005, the Christian Science Monitor reported on the role of Yahoo in the arrest of journalist Shi Tao in Hunan Province. Shi was convicted for emailing comments to a democracy group in the United States after his Internet IP address was given to Chinese officials by Yahoo officials in Hong Kong." _____________________________________________
"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
