Censorship and the Chinese

The Chinese government has blocked Wikipedia again. What kind of government is so weak and fragile that it is afraid of its own people finding out the facts and truth about anything they choose to learn about?

The Chinese may have advantages over us in terms of labor costs, by using child and slave labor. They also have advantages over us by allowing us to export our pollution. Think of it – by us buying products made in China – we’re exporting the environmental pollution the manufacture of the product produces.

But censorship is a handicap of the Chinese. If you withhold information from the people, the people leave. The best and brightest come to the United States, study at our universities and establish their lives here. Their brain drain is our advantage.

Does their government not realize that?
