The quotation comes from http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/18/world/asia/china-yanhuang-chunqiu.html

Quotation: These liberal editors have tried to have their complaints heard by a court, but so far no judge has agreed to formally hear their claims. They tried to file a new complaint on Tuesday, but court officials said they would have to wait a week before learning whether the court would accept it, Mr. Wu said.

Censorship in China can be dizzyingly swift and absolute. But it can sometimes be steady and inexorable, like the step-by-step subjugation of Yanhuang Chunqiu, which could set an example for other publications that question the party’s official line
Hi everyone! how to understand "absolute" here?
