Google China search

Philipp is Checking Chinese Google Results.

Apparently, the results differ significantly. At least some of the most obvious search terms (Falun Gong, Tienanmen massacre etc.) do get censored. But how much information is still seeping through — passing the barriers of censorship unnoticed? If Google China provides a net gain in information access to the people in China, maybe censorship will only slow down the process of change, not avert it.

I get the feeling more change is coming to China. And change and Communist governments usually don’t go well together.
