Whereas, closing foreign social networking to Chinese people won’t be a good method for the development of Chinese society. If people of a country only know one-sided information and they cannot really know their country, how can they help their country to get great development? To know the comprehensive information of Chinese society won’t bring bad influence to Chinese people, but the one-sided understanding would be disadvantageous to the development of the country. China should accept foreign Social networking like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, because will allow Chinese people to gain comprehensive information about their world. The comprehensive information is a huge power to make society to be more powerful.
The Great Firewall is what people call the firewall that prevents users from reaching certain sites.

America has tried to engage the Chinese to try to stop such theft, but while doing so may have surpassed civil liberties that are constitutional to all American citizens. The United States needs to ensure safety of intellectual property, while at the same time protecting the rights of the American people. By allowing overzealous amounts of regulation on the Internet would be unconstitutional. The most detrimental forms of Internet piracy do not happen within American borders; instead, they occur from overseas countries, like China (London, 2011). This causes the American economy to lose billions of dollars.

I think that Google was upholding their mission statement when creating Google.cn, as well as respecting the difference in culture and ethical views in a different country. I think that the American views of what is right and wrong probably caused Google to shut down the search engine because the general American ethical standpoint is that censorship is wrong and I’m sure that the criticism of Americans caused Google to have to choose between loyalty to America and their American customers and holding true to their mission statement, even if they had to do it using another viewpoint on ethics.

In the book, Why Nations Fail, Acemoglu and James (20) assert that China’s leaders are “extractive” characterized by corruption and parasitism. They proceed to predict a decline in Chinese economic growth. This is unlike the US “inclusive” policies and governing institutions that have helped strengthen nations across the world while promoting peace and international cooperation.

Prior to entering China, Google had high expectations of succeeding in China’s booming market for Internet companies. As Google entered China, they experienced unexpected problems that Google was not prepared to solve. Some of the problems Google faced were: criticisms from the US government and its citizens, poor service to their Chinese users, and a loss of market share to their Chinese competitors. The US government was certainly not a fan of Google entering China. The US government’s view was that Google entered China by placing move value on making profits than protecting citizens’ right to the freedom of speech.
Taking into account that terrorists like to use the security threat posed by Apple's mobile phone, the introduction of this law is the last straw that killed the camels. Because the personal information and important data collected and generated by Apple mobile phones are very large, they must be stored in China. In addition, the Internet data center does not allow foreign-funded enterprises to operate and they need to issue licenses. Apple is doing so to meet the relevant provisions of China's cloud services, apparently not even a joint
The international response calls for the halting of these immoral actions, but China still claims that it is destroying an evil institution. The simple fact China denies its members freedom of religion violates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which China has signed, but the violence against its people if they adhere to Falun Gong beliefs is a gross abuse of its power. Although China bans many religions, there is special emphasis on the Falun Gong, and many wonder why. One highly possible reason is that the growth, international reach, and popularity of the Falun Gong threatens the universal power the CCP holds in China, weakening the government, and therefore leading to the destruction of the threat: the Falun Gong.

There are problems on the Internet, such as cyber bullying and minor website hackings, but no government or organization need to get involved, these problems should be dealt with by the people themselves. Overall the Internet should be a free network. However to make the Internet a safer place their may be some regulations implanted like stronger age restriction laws and validation laws to make online transactions safer. There is no need for governments or different organizations to get involved over small situations, they should only be allowed to intervene when it is a national or even global threat or crisis.
