Why does China even need online censorship anymore? It has already reached a decent level of wealth and education for its citizens. I'm sitting in Russia right now, which isn't exactly a paragon of democracy, but I can surf on Google and YouTube the same as anyone else, and there are no riots on the street here or anarchy. I don't understand why the Chinese government is still obsessed with censorship.it's fascinating to review this old thread, going through all the comments, I am wondering if people who posted here are still with us. if you are, what is your comment on the following news?
SAN FRANCISCO - Google may launch a censored version of its search engine in China in a move that would largely reverse its 2010 decision to withdraw from the country, The Intercept reported.
