    Censorship, Bias & Political Correctness on Google

    I'm annoyed how each time I search for a politically incorrect term, Google pops up this:

    Aus Rechtsgründen hat Google 2 Ergebnis(se) von dieser Seite entfernt. Weitere Informationen über diese Rechtsgründe finden Sie unter ChillingEffects.org.
    YouTube practices it too, I often get a message that "this video is not available in your country". We are losing our freedom, the entire system is based on indoctrination and control, refusal of independent opinions. Often I switch to Google US to get a wider array of results.

    I'm wondering if this is an exclusively German thing or if people from other countries experience the same issues. Does Google block or manipulate search results in your country?

    Not yet. I'm saying not yet because the current Western model echoes here a little later than in other countries. But now we have a Holocaust denial law too, so pretty soon the censorship model from Germany will be here too.

    I haven't come across the United Kingdom censoring any sites so far - but I do recall that Google.co.uk remodelled a lot of the Search Results a few years back, because it was found that with News Items the BNP's news item always was listed at the top due to Nationalist's increased use of the internet to obtain their news information and the inavailability of daily news from a BNP perspective in the form of an actual newspaper. Google UK looked into it and re-arranged the Search Results, so that the BNP News Item would no longer come first.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    No.... but if you use platforms such as AOL then they do censor certain sites.

    They had to do this because the governments of Germany, France, China, and other countries with similar views on free speech were suing them and threatening to not allow the companies to operate in that country at all unless they removed the 'offending' content. Google/Youtube has been targeted by the German government with legal action, and Yahoo has been targeted by the French and Chinese governments for allowing neo-nazi, Falun Gong, and other 'extremist' elements on their sites. Some websites are blocked entirely (unless you use proxies) by the German and Chinese governments, possibly others as well.

    please, explain this process in detail - many of us could use that information.

    A proxy is a other PC (server) which you access a website through, it creates a kind of "tunnel" from your PC to the proxy, so if you internet provider is blocking internet sites you can still visit them via proxy.

    Proxify anonymous proxy - surf the Web privately and securely

    Proxify® is a web-based anonymous proxy service which allows anyone to surf the Web privately and securely. Unlike other proxies, there is no software to install or complicated instructions to follow. Just enter a URL (website address) in the form above. Through Proxify, you can use websites but they cannot uniquely identify or track you. Proxify hides your IP address and our encrypted connection prevents monitoring of your network traffic. Once using Proxify, you can surf normally and forget that it is there, protecting you.

    While access is free, subscribers receive a much higher level of service including access to special features. For more information, please see the FAQ. Try Proxify now by typing a URL in the form above or by clicking on a quick link here: DMOZ, Reuters, Hotmail, Snopes, SpamCop, Fark, Yahoo, Yahoo Mail, More...
