You may be correct, and if this is so, and we do not account for chinese who lives abroad for many years before coming back to China or those who live in Hong Kong which is not subject to the GFW. Then a problem may occur, a problem how they see the world on issue that would affect globally. I mean if they have the strongest cencorship in the world and do not know the truth or the complete issue on issue that may affect us, like human rights or poor product export, etc. Then the people would react or act like the citizens of 1984, based on what the government shows or tell. Then just on that alone should we again break this wall, the same way as those who broke down the Berlin wall to all them the same freedom and rights?
