The Golden Shield project, better known to many as the Great Chinese Firewall, is akin to the Great Wall of China, with which many ironically compare it, it really tightly blocks all unwanted content from the world wide Internet where we are located. For this, the system uses a set of filters by keywords, does not allow the Chinese media to refer to news foreign agencies without permission and much more.
At first glance, the system looks like a terrible censorship apparatus that restricts the freedom of Chinese citizens, but only if you don’t have the slightest idea of how things really are. The installation of the iron, or rather gold, curtain in China was preceded by the creation, by and large, of a complete copy of our Internet network, with its facebook, wikipedia, and telegrams. And the creation of these programs (whose audience, being exclusively Chinese, exceeds the number of users of analogues we know) preceded the training of their Zuckerbergs and Jobs. Behind such actions with the naked eye one can see state planning going forward for years, something that, by definition, is impossible in a fully capitalist state.
