France just voted to give the power to the police, without the power of a judge, to order the deletion of any "hateful" content on any website within an hour, or the website could be blocked in the whole country...
Yes, I said France, not China!...
Welcome to our beautiful #AuthoritarianDemocracy!
I wouldn't expect this from a nine eyes
Because there has to be a reason they aren't 5 eyes lol
@SporkyDorky Oh, this... It's just because in France we're so bad with speaking/understanding English!
@skynebula Well that's fucked. Here are some sources for people:
@djsumdog It is! I hope the EU Commission will counter this and rule it illegal...
@skynebula yeah well good luck with that 😂😂 internet can't be censored, hit one site 3 more will appear next day.
@skynebula Unless they're going to block all DNS from crossing physical borders with some magical unicorn-fu, that's really not going to work. Even more so with DNS over HTTPS becoming a default in Firefox.
@paradroyd They can (already) order all the French ISPs to block any website. It's just that for now it has to come from a court order pronounced by a judge.
@skynebula My point is, depending on how they're blocking it, there are probably MANY ways around such a so-called block. That's really only going to stop the poor muggles that don't know how to go around it.
I guess for content creators that depend on the general public, that's still a problem though.
