There is the interesting dilemma to the government of China. What is the reason for this? The reason is the famous worldwide network known as the Internet. Almost everyone is modern society uses this resource, chats, shares the information and does something else. The cheap and widespread access to the unrestricted pieces of information that are offered by the Internet could pose the serious threat to the authoritarian government of China. From the other hand, the benefits to efficiency and business which the Internet may bring are so great to be ignored. Especially it happens as China entrances into the World Trade Organization and is involved in the global economy. So the question is how the government of China will handle these pressures and conflicts?
Modern Internet can trace its roots back to the so-called but also famous ARPAnet. It represents the collection of computers which are designed to share the pieces of information among the researchers and universities. ARPAnet was conceived and accepted by the government of the United States of America in 1969 and it has grown steadily since. Nowadays the real global network of the computers is located all over the world. There is no nation which doesn’t own the Internet. Standards and bodies on the global level have been established to direct and control the continued growth of the Internet.
Since the single has no possibility to control the content that is available in the Internet, those nations that wish to control or restrict the access must resort to content blocking or filtering through hardware and software berries, patrolling access, laws controlling, the limitation of the physical access to the network connection.
The Chinese government employs both physical and limited access to the Internet for blocking and filtering the content. In the year 2001, China rolled out the government which developed the filtering software. The established Internet Police 110 will not only block online surfers from the viewing the violent, offensive and pornographic online content. It isn’t so common practice with may be used in the whole Internet world. But, in addition, it will also steer the users of Internet away from the sites the government views as threats to the regime of the Chinese Communist Party. This new kind of software reportedly has the capability and technical possibility for tracking the web surfers and blocks their messages which may be located in the specific sources.
