It’s not news that Google is a gigantic conglomerate, whose decisions are financial first and foremost. However, this week marks a big change and a decision which was based on what’s right for mankind, and not money.
This week Google decided they will no longer censor their searches in China. This decision was made as a result of the extremely invasive hacks they were subjected to this past December. At first, they thought it was one of the more common and annoying hackers just causing trouble. But after thorough investigation it was found that the Chinese government themselves was the culprit. They were secretly and illegally reading gmails of human rights activists in China to get information.
