Government Internet Censorship and Access to Restricted Sites

The internet was once a place where freedom reigned supreme, where anyone could share any information anonymously with no internet restrictions and censorship whatsoever — a “free-for-all” in the truest sense of the term. However, with the network growing bigger and more popular, it wasn’t long before governments started to curb online freedom and censor the internet.

Types of internet censorship

Low-key internet censorship

Some governments are somewhat reasonable in that they only restrict the most dangerous content or outright insufferable content, like child pornography or illegal services and goods. Such is the internet censorship in America, for instance. 

 

Full-fledged internet censorship

Other governments, e.g. China, Russia, and North Korea, went well over the top, trying to set up a full-fledged internet censorship and digital surveillance systems. They intend to bar their citizens from certain information, strip them of their online privacy, and keep them under constant monitoring. 

Usually serving internet censorship with the “national security” icing, those administrations aim at social networks and platforms that facilitate freedom of information and allow for easy communication and internet freedom. These are the things authoritarian regimes and those aspiring take issue with.

Internet freedom vs Internet censorship

Heavy-duty internet restrictions are likely to interfere with your internet habits. The Great Firewall of China, for example, blocks Google services, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. Even Wikipedia was banned in China at some point. 

Russia, North Korea, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates may not be as dead set on internet censorship as China, but they still hinder your connectivity quite a bit. And it’s not just inconvenience we are talking about. With global communication being one of the central aspects of today’s business, internet restrictions can cost businesses millions of dollars and even bring them to a grinding halt.
