Apparently the US government - with the help or on initiative of large companies/commercial enterprises - is trying to implement censorship to the information available on the internet.

That sounds PRECISELY like the enhanced censorship the Chinese government has annnounced to apply to their equivalents of twitter etc. (this was on the regular news today) "to protect the society from bad influences".
Sure! Meaning: further enforcing censorship of opinions opposed to the "communist" dictatorship.


Implementing censorship (I can image that for example Microsoft would LOVE to do that!!!) could result in the following. The beginning of the Hippocratic oath censored ->

The Hippocratic Oath
(Original Version)

I've censored the following, in protest of a bill that gives any corporation and the US government the power to censor the internet--a bill that could pass THIS WEEK. To see the uncensored text, and to stop internet censorship, visit:

I █████ by ██████ the █████████, ███████████, and ██████, and All-████, and all the ████ and █████████, ████, █████████ to my ███████ and █████████, I ████ ████ ████ ████ and ████ ███████████.

Well, I STRONGLY OPPOSE all government or commercial idiots trying to do this to "their people" and
support free information - like the wonderful work of the people at Wikipedia!


Happy New Year

I suspect, the scanned comic is still copyright protected – although the comic from which it is scanned is more than 50 years old – but hope, Charlie Brown, or rather Linus, will forgive me for quoting him in this way …
