Chinese government attacks on Marxists.org

Apart from principle, there are practical reasons to object strongly to attempts by the Chinese government (via BB) to damage and destroy Marxists.org: it’s a brilliant, unique resource, the examination of the often weird premises, analysis and conclusions of whose content helps one begin to understand how great portions of the world, including China, got into such a terrible mess for so long. A search for “Barcelona” alone raises 567 ghits, and there’s some great early stuff, including the articles published by Marx in the New York Daily Tribune on the roots and nature of civil conflict in early nineteenth century Spain. Unfortunately it’s difficult to see freedom-loving Google prioritising the scanning of subversive content like this for the Book Search programme.
