Charles Arthur: The internet cannot be centralised, parliamentarians

  • The nice thing is that even if national governments managed to figure out a way to regulate content on the Internet, another Internet with unregulated content would simply spring up in its place. And so on, ad infinitum. If these governments have nothing better to do than play a never-ending game of whack-a-mole, then be my guest.
  • State-sponsored thought control is at an end, for as long as we have the wherewithal to keep a network running. You can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube.
