Sorry Google, sorry world government leaders, this nasty old boy is high functioning, and aside from indexed greed, not in need of a “FIX”, it’s doing exactly what it is designed to do.
We just don’t get it.

A spent piece of chariot trash from 1800BC the ego oriented, antiquated economic system continues to mock us and push us around. As history clearly warns us, communism, democracy, fascism, capitalism, dictatorships, or monarchies; this old boy has no loyalty to any; it pushes all who participate over the cliff of indebtedness.

Monopoly control over legal tender has a long, mean spirited, history. A system that places malignant cells of usury along side any economic concept, is just poor design and irrational behavior, as a fine art. No, rather than fix, we need to abandon and redesign around our intuitive limitations using todays behavioral economics. “Complaining is silly, do something or forget it.”

I always read about cyber attacks originating from China so I don’t get why one can move there and not expect this every now and then. Either stay away, or move there and learn to deal with it.
Strategically, this is unwise. You can walk away from Cuba, North Korea or Zimbabwe. China is just too big for such moves. It’s not easy to convince investors of growth without China. I say improve your security measures and get back in there.

It’s a set of rules made by people to increase the interest of a majority of people within a society. By nature, morality restricts freedom of some kind. There’s no absolute freedom, or else there would be no freedom.
China, as a developing country, has its moral standard. And as a one-Party regime, it’s natural to censure anti-government content to preserve its power and maintain social stability.
U.S. as a developed democracy, has its own moral standard, which fits its own phase of development.
So, imposing one country’s moral standard to another is akin to imposing one country’s law to another country. Morality is the foundation of legal system, while law is the lowest moral standard.
Google’s moral pursuit for freedom tends to restrict China’s freedom to exercise its own legal power internally. And you cannot expect a government to make laws that threatens its own existence.

I personally think this could be the first step to a real change

China hacks them, and does not do anything to investigate the hackers. Also, I heavily disagree with censoring, so Google pulling out is also a good move in my opinion.

Perhaps at some future date, Google will be credited with real political change in China.
