Censorship Unnecessary

While Internet censorship is always a possibility, even in open societies like the US, it is a crude and unnecessary tool. Better to let grassroots communication flow freely, then round up the usual suspects. As we saw in the last national Republican and Democratic conventions, spotting pro-democracy activists and tapping their phone and e-mail was a piece of cake for the FBI. After that, all they had to do was infiltrate their meetings, photograph the leaders, and round them up before they could protest in public.
