Fuck China

Why this page?

The Great Firewall of China (see this Foreign Affairs article about China's cyber strategy ) prevents many Western sites from being accessed in China. As of today, China is blocking google, new york times and many other respected sites. You can find a partial list of blocked sites here . Now that a web application allows you to test the firewall, I thought it would be fun to test a page with something like this.

Nothing is intrinsically wrong with this page except its use of one profanity and english keywords that are politically unpopular. As I understand it now, people in China access the web through a proxy server, with certain adjustments to filter out certain results. (For more information, see Ethan Gutman's excellent article). In the event of a blanket filter, the proxy server would block everything containing certain keywords. The problem is that words by themselves are innocent of revolutionary intent and can be used quite innocently. Probably a more sophisticated filter would block sites that link to other controversial sites. Finally, a lot of url's are specifically blocked by Communist Party beauracrats, who found the site and decided the content was inappropriate. (admittedly these bureaucrats are probably more interested in dissident sites in Mandarin or Cantonese than English or French). This last kind of filter would be the least effective, while the second kind of filter (blocking sites that link to other sites) suffers from guilt by association. The most severe firewall is the keyword block, which would probably block this kind of page. I suspect that even with censorship, this kind of page is too insignificant to attract the censors. However, it's quite possible that the futility of blocking content would cause China to adopt filtering strategies that block this kind of site.

Do you block sites containing controversial links? Even a pro-censorship idealogue can understand the difficulties in having to censor sites that link to Falung Gong websites or tibet.org . Sites that link don't necessarily promote these idealogies; they are merely acknowledging their controversial nature. It reminds me a little of the Monty Python sketch about the world's funniest joke , and anyone who heard or viewed the joke would die of laughter. The premise of censorship is that offensive content contaminates the hearts and minds of people. But you can only have censorship if someone can judge content without himself being contaminated. This contradicts the premise of censorship, which alleges that these contaminating powers exist inherently in the offensive material. On the other hand, if a censor can censor without being contaminated, that implies that offensive content does not automatically contaminate the mind or heart of a person. In that case, you would be admitting that censorship is unnecessary. That is the contradiction of censorship.

I am keeping this page up to allow me to periodically check how vigorous the Chinese firewall is. Actually this page could also be a good test for any country's filtering software. There is nothing sinister here; only a single profanity repeated over and over. If the web proxy or monitoring system forbids this page, then clearly it is way too severe.
