At one time I thought no government could successfully censor the internet,
but China seems to be proving me wrong. The Great Chinese Firewall is very
good at keeping a billion people ignorant about certain things, and not
just political stuff. The Wuhan Coronavirus looks like it's going to become
a pandemic, it might have been prevented if action had been taken early but
the few that warned about it online in December were, in a scene
reminiscent of the trial of Galileo, hunted down and forced to apologize
for disturbing the public order. There was little or nothing on the
internet about it for nearly a month as the epidemic grew and China sat on
its hands.
