Internet Censorship in China

This makes sense, censorship is focused on posts that may lead to mass collective action. In other words the Chinese government is scared of mass collective action, since the origin of the communist party was in mass collective action (student demonstrations in Beijing against the Treaty of Versailles).

And Google has done something clever with China. Google searches in China now warn end users, their search term may result in being disconnected. A new tactic in China is ending the connection of a user when a prohibited search term is typed in. By adding this feature, google is doing an end run around the new tactic.
