Internet Access, Usage, and National Censorship
A 14 page paper discussing those nations and conditions in which Internet access is limited through censorship, with emphasis on the necessity of totalitarian governments to prevent their people from having too-great exposure to the practices and ideals of democracy that they could discover through unrestricted Internet access. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) continue to fight for an end to censorship on the Internet, but it remains unlikely that the worst offenders will change their collective stance when lack of control of the Internet within their countries equates to lack of control over citizens of the nations. The paper specifically discusses China, Cuba and Singapore. Though the governments have different motivations, the resulting censorship is much the same between them. Bibliography lists 11 sources.
