Eric Schmidt: The Great Firewall of China will fall

http://j.mp/LZFxp7  (Foreign Policy)

    "I believe that ultimately censorship fails," said Schmidt, when asked
    about whether the Chinese government's censorship of the Internet can
    be sustained. "China's the only government that's engaged in active,
    dynamic censorship. They're not shy about it."  When the Chinese
    Internet censorship regime fails, the penetration of information
    throughout China will also cause political and social liberalization
    that will fundamentally change the nature of the Chinese government's
    relationship to its citizenry, Schmidt believes.
