Actually, I think I'm going to about face and come out in favour of radical, narrow minded censorship.
Just think of the benefits:
1. The first time the G-Men come to haul off a school principle who refused to filter his school's Net access, all of a sudden he'll become "cool" to millions of teens around the US. Can you imagine it? A swarm of news cameras catchting Mr. Grabinski, principle of P.S. 451, being hauled away by faceless men in blue suits, his fist held high in defiance. His students, arms linked, swaying back and forth singing "We will overcome."
2. Students across America will come to realize just how much of a special-interest corrupted crock of (*expletive*) the Upper and Lower legislative bodies have become. When they become old enough to vote, they might actually do something about it.
3. Libraries will become cool again. At least, they will "after hours" when rogue librarians allow kids to sneak in for all night MySpace and chatroom sessions. It'll be such a "secret" and so "exclusive" that the library won't have enough computers to go around. As a result, in order to keep the kiddies from milling around outside waiting for their turn and looking suspiscious, the rogue librarians will allow them in, on the condition that they keep quiet and read a book while waiting their turn.
4, A massive resurgence in the popularity of Lynx and other text only browsers, so kids can keep on the social networks without the telltale graphics of those sites tipping off any teacher within a 50 foot radius. Opera, with it's ability to easily switch between a regular browser and text only mode, will finally win the browser wars.
Yes, I can see it all. Such a brave new world.
