Default google sells out to china!!!

did you hear that china has struck a deal with google, which allows google to operate in china. it involves them being heavily monitored and opressed. no chatrooms allowed and no access to outside oppinions on the situation in china. the state does not even allow the BBC's web site!
i thought that google might have some morals, but i was wrong.

They didn't have a CHOICE. China blocked them out, if china poeple wanted to use it google had to cave to the demands.

Just another example of oppresive government in a political law country. Political Law countries toggle between chaos and oppression. Gotta love what history teaches us.

They never got sold out. If anything, increased there buisness by being able to enter the chinese market.

Problem though, it's an oppressive goverment, so they can run google in China, but limit and filter a lot of western stuff and opinions.

Did you not hear about a recent opinion poll released by the World Health Organisation? (WHO)It was a complete flop.
It asked, Whats is your personal opinion on the world wide food shortages?
The Chinese never knew what an opinion was. The Europeans never knew what on earth a shortage was. The Africans never knew what food was, and the Americans never knew what the rest of the world was! :P

True! America has enough food to feed Western Kenya for quite a long time, infact, our government is infact paying our farmers to stop growing food. I hate polotics when it messes with human rights. Because one person thinks this way I can't help his people out...Just, stupid...

It's the demand that's in China. It's litterally billions of searches out in one country...heck, maybe trillions. However, since China is communist, everything is censored and monitored. So if you type in words such as; Taiwan, Freedom, Democracy, Falun Gong, Tianamen Square Massacre, all you get is nothing. The Chinese government is like that...

Corporate greed versus making a moral stand against a wretched opressive government.

Wow, who'd of thunk that Google was going to ally with the world's biggest power....

I guess Google needs to secure themselves somehow with the biggest power now before they induce global domination.

I wouldn't say they're alling with them. Just making money out of them.

I don't think I've ever heard an American actually admit that there are other powers (China, on the verge of super power, and definatly economic and military). Kudos to you!

What forest you been in? China has long been a super power. They are a member of the UN and sit on the UN security council.

The same one that tells me that just because there in the UN, doesn't make them a Super Power. Today, the only Super Power in the world is the USA.

China has no external buying power anywhere near that of the US, nevermind the EU. It doesn't have anywhere near as much military influence or capability as the US. 6th largest economy as well. Britain is hardly a Super Power, yet it also sits alongside China and the US on the UN security council, being the 4th largest economy. I see France there too - Blah, France a Super Power, not today mate.
