Great (stolen) Internet Wall of China

The Chinese government, the world’s leaders in intellectual piracy, are seeking to shut down their citizens’ access to the internet by installing pirated software on every Chinese computer.  Bruce Simpson has the story.


  1. Comes up 404 not found PC.

  2. Oops. I munted the link. Fixed now. :-)

  3. PC, I am reading your blog in Cuba with no problems. Just so you know. Only problem is that few Cubans can access the internet.


  4. "PC, I am reading your blog in Cuba with no problems. Just so you know."

    I'm very disappointed to hear that, Julian. I'd felt sure I'd be banned there. Perhaps I haven't said recently enough that Che Guevara and Fidel Castro were and are both murdering bastards, and that Raul Castro needs to be taken out in a coup.

    Come on now Google, do your work . . .

  5. Ah, right on cue comes this article at the Mises Blog:

    "Ironically, anticapitalist crusader and left-wing icon Che Guevara has turned into a brand name revered by people the world around, which brings me to Alvaro Vargas Llosa's The Che Guevara Myth and the Future of Liberty. Llosa evaluates the Guevara legacy and assesses the prospects for liberal reform in Latin America. Read on for the FULL ARTICLE "

    Now let's see if the Cuban internet filters pick up that message. :-)

  6. PC, stood next to the murderer's (Che Guevara) statue today near Santa Clara. Back in La Habana and am reading the linked article. Will share some Cuban friends here.
