China to Purify the Internet

China is implementing a six month plan to purify the net of porn. This type of thing is usually just a ruse to stifle free speech of all kinds. The program coincides with the run up to China’s choosing their next dictators. Thus, they can block any free speech that may run counter to the party line.

“The Chinese government plans to launch a six-month campaign to crack down on the spread of “pornographic and vulgar information” over the internet and via mobile phones.”
