It seems not.  :)

And even what happens in France does not compare with what happens in China, or what the government wants in Australia (some kind of huge firewall that filters specific things/sites, as it happens in China).

Looks like we'll all be needing the help of proxies eventually. Maybe I'll have to move to Iceland as they seem to be the only place setting a trend for having online freedom.

If you use proxies, they will still be able to intercept the traffic when it "exits" the country on its way to the proxy. So, if the traffic is not encrypted will it be of any help?

erm, i don't know about it being encrypted - probably so. whatever system many of the onliners in China use is what will work i guess. i assume that must be encryped.
