Central-government ministries in China have invested in two pillars of control: the Great Firewall, a Western name for a system of blocking foreign websites, starting in the late 1990s, which some believe has cost as much as $160m (the details are state secrets); and Golden Shield for domestic surveillance and filtering, begun in 1998 by the Ministry of Public Security and estimated to have cost more than $1.6 billion so far. Surprisingly, the machinery of control is far from monolithic, and rife with inconsistencies, especially from province to province. For thousands of individual censors to do their jobs willingly and effectively, the system must have a fundamental logic. As it turns out, the party applies the same strict rules online as it has done on the ground since the Tiananmen Square crackdown of 1989: do not jeopardise social stability, do not organise and do not threaten the party.
