Censorship in China
By Kim Winters
What is Censorship?
The Facts Behind Censorship in China
2.In December 2014, 44 chinese activist were imprisoned because of Press Freedom Issues.
3.International journalist or activist have to face government surveillance, and restrictions on their reportings.
4.A draft law has been posted by one of China’s technologoy regulaters that if you want to set up a website you have to set up a website with a domain approved by authorities.
5.According to a Zhu Wei this law would block out all other foreign websites from China’s media.
6.Violater of this law or people who do not follow it will be fined 1,500 to 4,500 dependent on the criteria.
What do these facts mean?
2.The second fact is very much like the first one, but instead there were 44 people imprisoned but they were not recognized for their valor to stand up to the norm.They should be recognized, don't you think?
3.The third fact shows how difficult it is to maintain an engaging website that is legal.You have to go through surveillance and restrictions.
4.The fourth fact I think is very stupid because a law is in draft to make people have to register a domain to the government for the government to track down your every move.
5.This fact explains the previous one showing that if this were to happen, any foreign websites would be blocked from China's media.This would be a huge impact to the people making them even more clueless and vulerable.Basically this website would be seen as a threat...think about that.
6.If you are not registered to a domain in the future, hack to see other websites, or simply exploit a website with "risky statements" you will be fined 1,500 dollars to 4,500 dependent on your offense.
Reasons for Censorship
Effects of Censorship
Well some people may say nothing it is completely harmless, or some will come up with a million reasons that is wrong with it.Beijing's Censorship patrol effects not only the people but the U.S. economy making this problem affect other countries.In the U.S. commercial activity and products for consumers is being affected hugly because the country with the greatest population in the world does not get to see all the commercials and products.This is basically saying ignore creativity and innovation.American Jouranlist as well has always had a hugely difficult time dealing with covers and reportings on China, because their image should also be presentable and polished to other nations.Also it complicates China's relations with other countries in marketing and sales, because of how much Censorship there is.But enough with the negatives, it is fair that the positives should be presented as well.Profanity is blocked from the minds of children, obscene images are blocked to not pollute minds, and inappropriate violence, racism, and sexism is deleted.That is all of them.
