The creep of control over the network we share continued last week with British Prime Minister David Cameron coercing four major ISPs to a mandatory pornography filter.
This is inevitable on an internet created by the military, administered by our governments and brought to us through the very corporations we are using it to rip off.
Government blocks will spread, taking down "violent material" and "extremist related content" with special attention given to web blocking circumvention tools.
But filtering can be bypassed by anyone using a VPN or proxy, the way children learn how to access Facebook at school.
Government will have no choice but grow heavier handed.
Soon hacker tools will find their way into average, middleclass hands.
And then the prisons will start filling with datacrime.
