The Internet and Society

For my project I choose internet censorship, I explain what websites are blocked and modern issues especially with China.

Pros of Internet censorship:

  • Helps with crime, if the government blocks crime websites people won’t do crime because of this
  • Helps with safety of the internet and the country, stops and uprising against the government

Cons of Internet censorchip

  • Obviously freedom of press and speech online is under attack in China
  • Government can manipulate what people read ultimately advancing the government’s agenda.

How the internet is blocked (Connection to what we have learned)

  • DNS filtering and redirection is when blocked domain names are not resolved and the user is redirected
  • URL filtering is when the URL string is scanned for target keywords, China uses this to block access to information regarding the Tiananmen Square protests
  • IP address blocking is access to a certain IP address is denied. If the target Web site is hosted in a shared hosting server, all websites on the same server will be blocked.
  • Network Disconnection is to completely cut off all routers, either by software or by hardware

Details learned to support my opinion

  • Gambling websites and drug websites should be blocked to promote a safer place on the internet and to decrease crime
  • China’s censorship of the press and Tiananmen square is wrong because it violates basic human rights (freedom of press and speech)
