Censorship is a direct collision with Realpolitik. On the one hand it makes sense that you would clamp down on people who are clearly only out to incite hate or want to spew their stupidity into the world. On the other, it will always be abused.

Without censorship this would not be nearly as funny. It's amazing how the mind fills in the blanks.
