Coming Soon to Britain: Protest and Porno Bans

First the British government floated the idea of banning protests. Now they are talking about censoring the internet.

The UK government has announced it is discussing a plan that would automatically block all pornographic websites. It is said the effort is designed to protect children.

Draconian efforts to limit the free choices of individuals are often sold to citizens as a way to protect children.

According to NewsCore, the biggest broadband providers in the UK, including BT, Virgin Media and TalkTalk, are being ordered to a meeting next month by Ed Vaizey, the communications minister, and will be instructed to block content.

In the past, people decided what to view on the internet. It was their responsibility to monitor what content their children viewed. Now the British nanny state will take over that job.'
