TOTALITARIANISM: Blog censors coming to America, soon!

Today we're warned that blog censors will soon be scouring British Internet sites for offending content. [; HT: Iain Dale's Diary]
Internet users will be protected from abusive bloggers and malicious Facebook postings under proposals to set up an independent internet watchdog, The Daily Telegraph has learnt.

The body, made up of industry representatives, would be responsible for drawing up guidelines that social networking sites, the blogosphere, website owners and search engines would be expected to follow.
Since the American intelligentsia seem to be in charge of our asylum nowadays, and since they also seem to be animated by European social and political views, we can only assume this kind of thing will arrive on our shores very soon ... if it hasn't already.

The comments section of Iain Dale's blog offers a taste of bloggers' opinion ... including mine.
