    I wonder if that comparison resonates differently with Australian citizens than it does with Americans. I would think not dramatically so, but I still wonder. After all, they did elect these people.

    That's kinda what I was thinking...

    Aus: "Hey Google, you did the filtering thing for China... why not us?"
    G: "Uhh... China is run by a totalitarian regime. You're supposed to be a free country, are you not?"
    Aus: "About that..."

    Google can always threaten to pull out of australia. I'm pretty sure citizens wouldn't take long to do something about that.

    This is so sad. I'm glad Google isn't putting up with their crap.

    I hope Austrailia doesn't prove to be the first free nation to willingly turn into a regime like China.

    It appears that's what they're trying to do.
