+ - France Threatens the Internet: "Censorship or Shackles!"->

Submitted by Lauren Weinstein
Lauren Weinstein (828974) writes "But there's a corollary to my "public is public" axiom that is much less frequently quoted. Even though attempts at Internet censorship will almost all fail in the end, governments and authorities have the capability to make groups' and individuals' lives extremely uncomfortable, painful, or even terminated — in the process of attempts at censorship, and equally important, by instilling fear to encourage self-censorship in the first place."
