First China, now Canada: Modern thought police

 According to this blogger, the Canadian government is getting ready to enforce their legal ability to require ISP’s to block content that the government has deemed inappropriate.  While the sites in question are reprehensible white supremacist rantings that deserve to be tactically nuked from orbit it is a little disconcerting that Canada believes its citizens need to be protected from certain types of information.

According to this blogger, the Canadian government is getting ready to enforce their legal ability to require ISP’s to block content that the government has deemed inappropriate.  While the sites in question are reprehensible white supremacist rantings that deserve to be tactically nuked from orbit it is a little disconcerting that Canada believes its citizens need to be protected from certain types of information.  

 

The Internet harbors good as well as bad.  It is the access to all information and each individual's ability to discern right from wrong, given all the facts, that makes for free and prosperous societies. Canada is taking a step in the wrong direction here. What’s next? blocking of Canadian jokes?
