We all know about how the Chinese government censors the Internet, and the problems it has caused for Google and by extension the US government. Only a terrible dictatorship like the Chinese could possibly want to filter the Internet, right? WRONG! It could be that they’re the only ones who can pull it off.
Australia has been trying to push through a similar filtering scheme (although they probably won’t stop words like freedom
), but they’ve been forced todelay the implementation
This should make us all wonder about our governments and what they have in mind for us. If they didn’t tell us that they were filtering our Internet access, would we even notice?
