Chinese Government declares war on Internet pornography

By Derek Sooman on
The Chinese Government has declared war on Internet pornography. For some time now, the Chinese regime has censored Internet content in order to prevent the distribution of politically subversive material. Now, the Chinese plan to expand that strategy to include Internet pornography as well.

According to a Chinese government official, 221 people have been arrested, and almost 600 web sites have been shut down since March in a crackdown on "obscene" Internet content.
Committed to crushing web sites that challenge government authority, or distribute content that the government considers to be detrimental to society, the Chinese Government has also recently expanded their surveillance to include mobile phone text messaging and other forms of communication.
