Google has stopped censoring search results in China and I tip my hat to them. A few months ago the Chinese government hacked the gmail accounts of a number of human rights activists. Google hacked them back and tensions with the the Chinese government had greatly increased. Today Google pulled the plug on the censored version of its omnipresent search engine. I'm assuming the uncensored Google has already been blocked by the government. I have to say I admire Google turning down a market of a billion-plus potential customers based on principle. In the frenzy of economic rape that's been taking place for a couple of decades now I can't remember any other multi-national corporations pulling out of China because what their government does is essentially evil. Remember when communism was supposed to be bad? Now our country is economically dependent on it. You know how we have sanctions against poor communist countries like Cuba because of their human rights abuses? Why aren't there sanctions against China? Now that communism is getting us cheap stuff at Wal-Mart all of that principled anti-communism is dead. You'd think all these huge companies that fund the anti-health care movement and label it socialism would take a stand against communism, wouldn't you?
Kudos to you Google, let's see if anyone has the principle to follow suit.
