Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Golden Shield Project, colloquially referred to as the Great Firewall of China is a censorship and surveillance project operated by the Ministry of Public Security division of the government of the People's Republic of China. The project started in 1998 and began operations in November 2003. The political and ideological background of the Golden Shield Project is considered to be one of Deng's favorite sayings in the early 1980s: "If you open the window for fresh air, you have to expect some flies to blow in." The saying is related to a period of the economic reform of China that became known as the "socialist market economy." Superseding the political ideologies of the Cultural Revolution, the reform led China towards a market economy and opened up the market for foreign investors. Nonetheless the economic freedom, values, and political ideas of the Communist Party of China have had to be protected by "swatting flies" of other unwanted ideologies.show more
