Mr. Hu, Tear Down This Firewall!

I am glad Hillary took China to task for its censoring of the internet. The events of the past week were a step in the right direction.

Internet users, she declared, must be "assured certain basic freedoms" – freedom of expression and of worship, freedom from want and from fear and, most intriguingly, "freedom to connect".

It was naive to imagine the regime would not control what its people could read in the internet.
