German Net Censorship To Be Expanded Beyond Child Porn

A mere 2 hours passed before the authorities in Germany were looking to expand the powers of the child porn targeting net censorship act to killer games such as Counterstrike and other FPS. Now Slashdot is reporting that the Minister for Family Affairs Ursula von der Leyen is looking to expand the blocking software to block hate speech and net bullying.

With the ongoing discussion about hate crimes and hate speech in our own government I predict it will not be long before our own (US) government advances similar proposals.

It is after all for the good of the children.
