Clearly they are intelligent and resourceful, but their talents are being wasted.


Yes, that's an accurate conclusion.

Where is the incentive?

What good would be served by Google violating one of the newest agreements it has made with the government of China?  Google is in China to make money.  If it violates all its agreements, then how can it expect the Chinese to cooperate with it?  Google passports denied entry while others receive quick attention?  Google servers blocked completely, not just the part that was once encrypted?  Google's presentation of RMB for conversion denied or their accounts inside the PRC frozen?  

Ultimately, it makes little sense for Google to violate the terms of its own operating agreement with the PRC.  It would just give its competitors a hand up in market.  Besides, a person who can read English and understands the outside world is already politically indoctrinated into either communism or capitalism.  Each political doctrine as taught discourages mass public violence as ineffective.  Communism says "who started this mess?"  Capitalism says "who's gonna pay for this mess?"  Niether political theory teaches that messes effective ways to change things.  So internet freedom in English looks like trusting the foxes with the henhouse, but the truth is that all those foxes were de-fanged long ago.

If China wants to be on the internet,  


Well now, isn't that pompous of you!

So, China needs your - or someone else's perhaps - permission to be "on the internet" in whatever manner China chooses, does she?

You are quite the idiot aren't you?

Here's a news flash for you...China is a sovereign nation. China has the right to do what she wants, when she wants, and with whatever suits her to do with anything that impacts, effects, enters or leaves China either as physical, intellectual, spiritual, cyber, or whatever.

Odd isn't it though that a foreigner would be so pompous and self-important as to think that the foreigner has the right to dictate to China what she and her people can or cannot do?

Well, maybe not all that odd after all since so many foreigners are so low on the intellectual and ethical scale as to wallow in the self-delusion that their dictates must immediately be obeyed by China and Chinese people.

I am told...

that GOOGLE has an Encryption option...


I would like to see this ... Do you have a reference for how or where the option is?

My reasons are purely IT-related, I want to see what Google is doing :)

I think he is confusing Google with Wikipedia (which has encryption available).
