The censors can try with all their might, but I believe that in the end, bits and bytes will always be able to escape.  This article, about data escaping censors in Iran, is a great example of how data cannot be held back.  People who value truth also value data.  One downside of open data (and free speech) is that, in the words of Winston Churchill, “a lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”  It’s a small price to pay for freedom.  Cyberwar – Iranians and Others Outwit Net Censors – Series – NYTimes.com
