China and Google's "admittance"
Note to Sergey: With such censorship comes a moral wrong. Chinese citizens don't care that,
"On a business level, that decision to censor... was a net negative."Morality is not a matter of the bottom line. Are we to shed a tear that,
"the company had suffered because of the damage to its reputation"or because the rights of human beings have been violated? It is disturbing to hear you say,
"perhaps now the principled approach makes more sense.""Perhaps now"? This implies that principles are playthings. Playthings to be used when profitable yet ignored when inconvenient. There is no restitution with this admittance. This admittance is a reminder that when it comes to the search for, and accessibility of information, Google is still committed to place profit over people.
