Words from Richard Stallman

Censorship is more dangerous than whatever material people propose to
Once censorship get established, it tends to extend.  Poland
must not forget the danger of tyranny, and the censorship that
supports tyranny.  Poland struggled for many year to win freedom,
and must not surrender it now
