released a new version in China. Great news for Google, but as I heard
it real bad news for the rest of the world and especially the People of
The main idea, as presented on Fox News, was that Google has agreed to
filter results provided to the Chinese People. The filters include,
but not limited to, any content on freedom or human rights. If this is
true, Google will have started a precedent that could end the recent
growth and awareness of human rights issues, and aid tyrants whose only
purpose is to control and manipulate, for their own gain, the citizens
of their country. This type of blatant censorship, if true, goes
against everything any honorable, ethical, and moral person stands for.
I would appreciate other's views and comments on this issue.

They don't make the big bucks out of GWB. And realistically they have
stockholders to consider now. Fancy being on the wrong end of some
kind of class action because you put morality before profit? You can
do it when you own the company outright but once you've shared it your
only legit boss is Mammon. You can argue a bit about weakening the
brand if you don't make a stance etc but really, you have to go after
the bucks now.
