This is a short statement to express appreciation and admiration for the
public stance taken by Ken McVay in opposition to a Net censorship
program
undertaken by government offices in British Columbia, Canada.  Mr. McVay
is performing a valuable public service, and I can only hope that many
others will join him in expressing their disapproval of attempts by
governments to control speech, and thereby, thought.

The infringement of free speech is in and of itself an affront to
humanity.  It is also a prime enabler of evil actions of a far less
ethereal nature.
