The China - Google spat

Much like several other political conundrums, such as with terrorism vs. freedom fighting, for instance - which seems to have become solely dependent on who's side you're doing the killing for - there's also a fine line dividing censorship from the ability to defend your country's national interest in the face of a barrage of indiscriminate Western propaganda flak causing harm to the stability of any society that wants to have its cake and eat it - by both staying within the fast capitalist, globalized "international community" system for trading purposes while, at the same time, being able to preserve its thousands' year old culture and values.

Luckily for China, it is far too big and powerful to care about any of this readers' digest type of criticism...
