    China should ban the internet itself, it solves all the problems no criticism and no corrupting of Chinese youth...

    I'll take your word for it but I tried it with 4 chini proxies but no dice.

    Chinese proxies are useless, like chini hardware is useless?

    China blocks internet sites in consonance with their policy of ensuring 'harmony' and 'law and order'.

    Any site that excites the Chinese to think differently from the official Communist Chinese Party line would be promoting disharmony and serious law and order problems that may unseat the Communists from ruling China.

    Obviously, that would not suit the Communist rulers to lose all their power, privileges, perks and pelf!

    Xi and his hirelings won't have problems to do exactly that what you seem to suggest you are doing! ;)

    Let us see any Chinese from China writing anything critical of Xi, the Communist Party or of China from their cell phones or any form of communication on a foreign forum!

    Actually, here you're displaying crass ignorance. The roots of China's internet policy lie with two key drivers:

    1) Economic protection of domestic internet firms
    2) National security

    1 is probably the most important, as the payments from those internet firms to Party Central are what keeps the "broad consensus" against foreign internet firms in place.

    Indeed. the Communist Govt blocking internet site is ever so altruistic!

    Go tell that to the Marines!

    Propaganda that you show is a way over the top!

    What is national security?

    It is just what I had said.

    The cyberspace cannot physically invade and take over territories of China, or can it?

    But it sure can open up the Chinese mind to freedom and democracy and that is dangerous for the Communist Party's stranglehold over China!

    In a modern world, national security is not just about territorial security, cyberspace is also an increasingly important frontline.

    If not, why is Indian intelligence bureau proposing to block Chinese instant message application wechat?

    Can wechat physically invade and take over the territory of India?

    What are you afraid of? Fearing that it will open up Indian mind to a prosperous and dynamic China?

    American Internet companies have been proved to be deeply involved in a program attempting to spy the whole world, there is nothing wrong in banning a spy.

    There used to be a cartoon about former Karnataka chief minister Deve Gowda and his family. The legislature building in Bangalore has the words "Government's work is God's work" and the cartoon says "Government's work is Gowda's work"

    A similar thing can be said of the Chinese government, "National security" of China is synonymous with the security of the Chinese Communist Politburo. Gowda was removed. But the ChiCom party cannot be removed. That would be the collapse of national security in China

    But I am not Xi, i am just an ordinary Chinese frequenting an ordinary Indian site.

    I dont have to be critical of Xi to prove anything to get the recognition of this forum, Xi is doing a good job as i see it.

    Why any Chinese need to express their anger in a foreign forum with a foreign language when they have plenty of domestic forums to cry out in Chinese. It will make more senses to them to critisize their leader or CCP in the language both can understand such as Chinese?

    I don't see any india coming to Chinese forum to critisie Indian gov in Chinese.

    China blocks Google services for common people, but does business with the American hegemon.

    You don't see Indians because very few know the Chinese language.

    In fact, there are very few foreigners in the Chinese forum since Chinese is not an international language like English.

    In an English language forum, no matter in which country, there are a whole lot of posters that include the natives as also many many foreigners.
