China to require Web-censoring software be included
with all computers sold in the country

BEIJING — China has issued a sweeping directive requiring all personal computers sold in the country to include sophisticated software that can filter out pornography and other “unhealthy information” from the Internet.

The software, which manufacturers must install on all new PC’s starting July 1, allows the government to update computers regularly with an ever-changing list of banned Web sites.

The rules, issued last month, ratchet up Internet restrictions already among the most stringent in the world. China regularly blocks Web sites that discuss the Dalai Lama, the 1989 crackdown on Tiananmen Square protesters, and the Falun Gong, the banned spiritual movement. But free-speech advocates say they fear the new software could make it even more difficult for China’s 300 million Internet users to access uncensored news and information.

“This is a very bad thing,” said Charles Mok, chairman of the Internet Society, an advocacy group in Hong Kong. “It’s like downloading spyware onto your computer, but the government is the spy.”

This is the globalists using China as a laboratory as they have been doing for a long time.  When you already have a nation of slaves, you can easily beta-test and implement even more slavery, because the population will not care because they do not know what freedom is.

Ever notice there's never been an "Al-Qaeda" attack in China?  Know why?  Because no one there has to be propagandized to and made afraid to justify taking anyone's rights away, because their rights are already non-existent.  If China was relatively free, there'd be all kinds of staged terror taking place there.

That being said, I'm wondering are people so stupid that they don't know how to securely wipe a hard drive (not just format but actually at least write zero's to the entire disk, then format).  And then install a hacked os like Windows XP Black Edition?
