No Blood for AdSense!

In reaction to Google capitulating to the murderous PRC, the arguments going around that "the laws of a country must be obeyed" show a truly alarming ignorance of the life-or-death issue that some laws are good (they protect rights), some are bad (they violate rights). Google is a US company, so it has to comply with US law and nobody can criticize it for that -- but when companies like Google and Microsoft choose to implement the censorship policies of the butchers of Tiananmen Square, it is their choice to trade the rights of real individuals for money.

PS: The NY Times titles their news story Version of Google in China Won't Offer E-Mail or Blogs -- notice the omission of the 'C' word (censorship)? Today is a big day for spinelessness.
