Controlling the Internet

This interesting 'quote of the day' from the WSJ.com's Morning Brief e-mail newsletter:

"Whether or not we can actively use and effectively manage the Internet ... will affect national cultural information security and the long-term stability of the state," said Chinese President Hu Jintao, in calling for tighter controls on the Internet and ordering government and Communist party cadres to "purify" the Web and tap into new technology to guide and manage online opinion more closely, the Financial Times reports. "Strengthening network culture construction and management ... will help extend the battlefront of propaganda and ideological work. It is good for increasing the radiant power and infectiousness of socialist spiritual culture."
