Blocked in China

Okay, it's official, I am blocked in Capitalist™ China®, not because Hu Jintao and his team have ever read my blog(in a translation or in it's original English). It is because is blocked for free expression, speech and press.

Communism is a system of government in which a democratically-controlled government has economic control and they provide for EVERYONE. So, we prove that China is not communist, now lets talk about how the Chinese can escape the Great Firewall.

Here is a list of ideas you can try, I AM responsible if you try it. Of course, I am not a Chinese person. This is from Wikipedia which has CC-BY-SA licence:
  • Using a proxy server outside China
  • Companies can establish regional Web sites within China. This prevents their content from going through the Great Firewall of China; however, it requires companies to apply for local ICP licenses.
  • Onion routing, such as I2P or Tor, can be used.
  • Professional advice from any one of the many companies offering bypass services from outside of China.
  • IJOVPN, PaperBus, Freegate and Ultrasurf are free programs that circumvent the China firewall using multiple open proxies, but still behave as though the user is in China. Ultrasurf also scans for various government and commercial websites from the user's computer, and may be used to monitor dissidents.[21]
  • Open application programming interface (API) used by Twitter which enables to post and retrieve tweets on sites other than Twitter. "The idea is that coders elsewhere get to Twitter, and offer up feeds at their own URLs—which the government has to chase down one by one." says Jonathan Zittrain, co-director of Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society.
  • Reconfiguration at the end points of communication, encryption,discarding reset packets according to the TTL value (time to live) by distinguishing those resets generated by the Firewall and those made by end user, not routing any further packets to sites that have triggered blocking behavior [22]
That is from the article "Great Firewall of China®"(® symbol not in the article name).

Theocracy: A Criticism

I am a fan of politics and religion so I will intermix them. It is bad enough that we live in a capitalistic society, now some Oligarchs want to the United Empire of Terra, or the United States, in to the Theocratic Empire of Terra. Here is why theocracy sucks.

Theocracy is basically a form of government were a religion or sect is its laws and the constitution is the holy book of the religion. In a theocracy, god or a god is the dictator of the country.

As most people of faith will say, their belief is based on faith. I won't criticize that but if you can't prove the existence of a being than why should it be the leader of a nation? If you want to believe based on faith, go ahead but don't tell me that your god or your favorite god should be a nation.

In conclusion, you can have faith but it is bad to force on every once else. Excluding Vatican City since nobody who isn't part of the Catholic Church is related to it can became a citizen(for good reasons).
