Breaking down the Great Firewall

William Pesek wants Chinese consumers to stand up to the Western technology giants that are collaborating with the Communist Party to impose censorship and strengthen the Great Firewall:

Why, with all his wealth and global prestige, isn't Microsoft founder Bill Gates standing up to Beijing? Why isn't Google taking that $467 share price out for a spin and challenging China? Why is a global household name like Yahoo bowing to a repressive regime? Companies seem to think their mere presence will help open China. That's just bunk.

(Thanks, Keith!)
