Big Brother strikes again

by Nikola Strahija on January 8th, 2006 Microsoft removed Zhao Jing's blog on the grounds of being critical of the Chinese government. Such behaviour, from an American company, whose country's main purpose is to deliver democracy to whole world is, at least, accquard.

Zhao Jing's blog, once located on the MSN Spaces service, has been blocked to help ensure the service complies with local laws in China, said a statement from Microsoft.The decision to delete site from its Microsoft hosting package was defended by CEO Steve Ballmer. -We have an obligation in all the countries where we do business to abide by the laws and the government decrees in those countries, he said.

Other IT companies of the free world have also changed their policies to match the Chinese human rights abusive law. This, in connection with China's sophisticated Internet monitoring system, makes it very difficult, if not even impossibile for depressed people to spek their word.

Many of the Microsoft employees, as well as anyone with clear head, are asking the same question: Has Microsoft become a communist China agent? Whatever the stake, whatever the cost, Microsoft could still say no, and make the world a little bit better place to live on. God knows the company has the money to do it.
