BeeDeeDubbleU, censorship HAS caused LOTS of major issues over hundreds of years.
That is why the UK ended its rigorous censorship of books (in the 18th century) and of the theatre (until 1968 all plays had to be government approved).
Furthermore, what is in libraries and newsagents is not censored: there are laws, the breach of which leads to prosecution after the event - there is no approval needed to print something.
You would have to look pretty hard to find material on the internet that is more capable of "corrupting innocence" (to use Cameron's words than some things available in bookshops (the works of the Marquis de Sade, for example).
