Dial C For Censorship In Putin Land

Vladimir Putin used to work for the KGB so when it comes to restricting access to information there is no better defender of the government’s right to decide what is available to citizens. A new bill that will shortly become law allows the government to end certain sites on the Internet that are deemed to provide “undesirable” information. Naturally, in Putin Land when something is labeled to be “undesirable” the government insists they are merely protecting people from pornography.

Of course, the issue is what is deemed to be “pornography.” Apparently making insulting or derogatory statements about the Leader of Russia ranks number one on the hit parade for being “undesirable.” Putin fixed the election for president and now he wants to fix it so anyone who opposes his rule is labeled to be an “undesirable.”
