If you google Censored Top 25 Stories you will find a jungle out there...What does Lanier say about censorship in America? Some say that the only valid censorship of ideas is the right of people not to listen. But as we all know that patriots of one propaganda system or another only listen to what will reinforce their pre-existing beliefs. How could world wars and holocausts happen without the complicity of "autonomous" individuals. True test of a free soul or society is how open and informed one is to opposing points of view. Censorship should offend us, not ideas--even if they are posted anonymously.
