More Internet Censorship in Great Britian

15. June, 2011

The British government wants to extend theĀ censorship filter lists for undesired content.

Not unexpected. The argument “filter lists are essential to fight child porn” is basically a lie; most child porn is exchanged in private groups which the police either can’t find or can close easily. But since the topic is so touchy, arguments against it were objectionable. It didn’t matter if the tool was useless or even dangerous as long as it looked good.

Now, the road is paved to censor the Internet.

Of course, Britain isn’t China.

They don’t suppress people for political reasons.

Commercial reasons and votes are enough.
