When the news looks bad, European governments, the US government, state and municipal governments all want the information taken down. How is can free people make decisions if the information is suppressed? http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/12/19/google_reports_jump_in_government_takedown_requests/

I think the the government has always done things we wouldn't approve of. We're just aware of it.

Best Answer

Not to the degree they do now. Governments did not have nearly as much to do with all things, at least in the US until the last 50 or so years, mostly in the last 20.

There certainly isn't the availability there once was, but I know Roosevelt locked up Japanese Americans. There was some underhanded crap going on.

Best Answer

Yes, that did happen. Did you know that during president Wilson's tenure, we had a para-military thug police called the American Protective League (APL) and a nice 100,000 person ministry of propaganda called the Committee on Public Information (CPI)? The same ****, just a hundred years earlier. The old equivalent to the current attempts were, so far, much more successful. But give the new guys a chance. Between George 2 and Barry O, we have moved toward a permanent police establishment to a frightful degree.
