Google co-founder Sergey Brin explained why his company decided to close its search engine in ChinaGoogle co-founder Sergey Brin explained why his company decided to close its search engine in China Internet has given China a measure of transparency accountability and public voice, with an impact far more powerful than decades of 10 percent economic growth, foreign investment and urbanization Brin is right that China's political system retains many of the Leninist attributes of the old Soviet Union, but he is wrong to conflate the government's attempts to enforce those attributes with the actual results.

Brin cites the Chinese government's increasing requests that Google censor information as evidence of greater censorship. That's one way to interpret the data. Another equally plausible explanation is that the supply of content deemed worthy of censoring has multiplied, forcing the government to play catch up, often from a hopeless distance.

Anyone who has spent time online in China can testify that the Internet community there is easily one of the most dynamic and vibrant on Earth. On any issue, there are passionate debates and opinions across the ideological spectrum. Maoists, Hayekians and Confucians trade barbs with insults and zealotry. Blogs by serious intellectuals attract audiences unimaginable in the West. China's market for ideas is enormous. Last month, the Chinese premier, Wen Jiabao, went online and personally answered netizens' questions, even some that, by Chinese standards, were rather blunt. (One answer Wen gave on the real estate market prompted a blogger in China to post all the past statements Wen had made on controlling real estate prices -- alongside an index of rising prices.)

Yep, obviously some real Chinese talking here.

Refreshing to read, instead of the usual propaganda nonsense.

I have to review my IQ grading of Anglos now.
They are far more stupid than I had previously thought.
Not an easy task to further downgrade I must confess.

Is there such a thing as Negative IQ?
