Are citizens "ALWAYS" good?
Just at TEDGlobal 2011, Rebecca MacKlinton mentions citizen-oriented evolution of internet. Also, she mentions several news with censorship by government.
I generally agree that the future of the internet should be citizen-oriented, but I have some questions about the role of government.
That include "Why government censors internet(and other media)?"
There IS a political reason for censorship, but there is a reason for protecting citizens from the public threat, or immorality.
If we assume that citizens are producing contents in the internet, is citizen's right to access contents in the internet ALWAYS guaranteed despite they produce public threat? What is the acceptable area for public good(or threat)?
