UK Censorship

WAR CRIMES are considered a lot less serious than whistle-blowing, according to UK standards. The government is currently trying to suppress the publication of stuff that should have been public all along. It is very sad to see that once again — as expected — much of the public will neither know nor care. And why? Because “censorship” is perceived as bad only as long as “they” do it, not “us”. A lot of people are brainwashed into the mindset that our own censorship is “defending” us and others’ is “suppressing” them.

Richard Stallman got it right about censorship. All censorship is bad. If we go down the slippery slope of selective and hypocritical censorship but never stand up, we deserve the consequences.
