What China has become

China —impressive economic growth with increasing censorship on information. What China has become?  I am afraid this is really what scares people in the West.  Chinese leaders may soon realize block of free information flow and ideas will eventually haunt them and hamper China's future long-term growth.

WSJ reports:

China plans to require that all personal computers sold in the country as of July 1 be shipped with software that blocks access to certain Web sites, a move that could give government censors unprecedented control over how Chinese users access the Internet.

The government, which has told global PC makers of the requirement but has yet to announce it to the public, says the effort is aimed at protecting young people from "harmful" content. The primary target is pornography, says the main developer of the software, a company that has ties to China's security ministry and military.
