House International Relations Subcommittee, subcommittee chairman Chris Smith recently said that Google ‘would enable evil by cooperating with China’s censorship policies just to make a buck’. ‘Enable evil’? It makes it sound like an option in your operating system… You go to your start menu, open the control panel, then in the I.O. menu (Ideological Orientation) click ‘evil’. Yes, China does have some very, very serious human rights issues, and I agree with Smith’s general view, but does he have to sound like a George W. Bush clone? He is a Republican, but, just because his leader is incapable of thinking in anything other than a Manichean good/evil binary, that’s no reason that he should do this too.
