As much as western media shouts that China is blocking information, what China is in reality blocking is western disinformation (although the other
occurs as well).
Today, every time you search something, you get up Wikipedia. For example, in the 1800's, there was a classical case, of humanitarian nature in
France, which shows that France was the first country to actually introduce humanitarian cases in court, claiming people were as much victims of
circumstance, as perpertrators. Now it's gone from the internet, almost impossible to find.
It's just one of a million cases, as you said ... and the reason is IMDB, Facebook, and Wikipedia. These sights, allow any moron to edit and insert
information, that after that will cloud all other information on the Internet. This is a far more effective disinformation media, than anything the
As an example, the current MH17 affair. Even Wikipedia now calls the soldiers of the breakout republics of Ukraine for terrorists. When the same
happened in Bosnia, Kroatia it wasn't terrorism ... it was freedom fighting. But in this case, the people in question are Russians ... who are
"enemies" of the US, so the label "terrorists" is put on them. Which of course, is a political term and not correct.
Another case, of Wikipedia's disinformation is Plate Tectonics site. A scientific information, that should be factual. But instead of being factual,
a theory as the Plate Tectonics that in reality is widely questioned. Is written in a political manner, where people who have alternative theories
are called crackpots and idiots. Literally.
And if someone, by any chance, edits the label "terrorist" on the breakout republics. The CIA operatives, who apparently are common here on ATS, cry
out "terrorists" in an attempt to ban the changes of an adjective that is a political adjective, and does not belong on an information site. These
CIA operatives have only purpose, and that is to be the LAST person to put a comment on your forum, or to be the LAST person to edit the Wikipedia
site. Because they know, that anything between the first and the last ... is almost always forgotten. In such a way, they will rule the
disinformation that is being provided.
So, yes ... I think many of us know. It's all over the Internet ... the US has been busy these past couple of decades in making the Internet a
propaganda medium, much like the Luxemburg/Norway radio channels during the Marshall plans.
