Visaris's Journal: School Censorship

Journal by Visaris

"Why bother improving security when you can just pass a law enabling you to arrest or expel anybody who tries anything funny?

After all, we all know that the most dangerous elements of our society are stopped by LAWS, right?"


"If the fundamental argument for the use of the proxies and security in schools is that the students are youths, to be protected from the corruption of the internet for the very reason that they are impetuous and easily led astray at this tender stage of their life, then it's inconsistent to punish them for the failures of those measures.

Clearly, the systems exist to protect the corrupt society from idealistic youth who are not materially benefited by the society. But it's a hard sell politically.

Thus this ridiculousness."
