History has shown many have lived in cooperative society without paying many of the costs. "Draft" dodging via wealth n power, Affording decent lawyers or even going as far to use corruption to get around laws, using the courts and large amounts of money to win a war of atrocity against someone in a courtroom because they cannot afford to pay the legal costs to continue the fight.
Society evolved and grew up with the weak being stood on, survival of the fittest, the strong take power and oppress others, always have and for the short term future probably always will.
Maybe that's just human nature, or maybe it's the law of nature itself. The good thing is that part of our human nature as a species that is social is to help out those in need at times and hopefully we will evolve socially to allow more of it vs chasing greed.
Maybe when science gets to a point where we can interface the biology with cybernetics to access all of our emotions, keep us happy, then no one will care if they are oppressed as they can simply be happy. If you had the chance to do boring manual labour work but had a way to make it the most fun you'll ever have then you'd be a fool not to choose it.
The thing people hate about America with this is that they claim how bad censorship is for other countries etc but do it themselves apparently. Just like the cries of "land of the free" and hypocrisy's where free health-care is apparently the devil. If you put forth your country as the ideal free peaceful democratic society then expect people to call you out more for when you fail to live up to it.
The fact that the reason these sites were taken down is still a secret just enforces doubt. Just like in my country (Australia) our blocklist for the censorship is going to remain a "secret" for the good of the people? History again proves secret reasons that things are banned or even people locked up for them usually come with oppression.
