Sounds sort of like cleaning up campaign finance to me. Different people but with the same world view–people cannot be trusted with freedom:
Chinese Communist Party chief Hu Jintao has vowed to “purify” the internet, state media reported on Wednesday, describing a top-level meeting that discussed ways to master the country’s sprawling, unruly online population.
Hu, a straitlaced communist with little sympathy for cultural relaxation, did not directly mention censorship.
But he made it clear that the Communist Party was looking to ensure it keeps control of China’s internet users, often more interested in salacious pictures, bloodthirsty games and political scandal than Marxist lessons.
