The riots and ramapages in Britain are both disturbing and destructive. To some extent, like the rebellion in Egypt, they are being driven by the social media like Facebrook and Twitter. So much so that Prime Minister Cameron is considering banning some people from using the social media.
This morning’s Globe and Mail wants none of that: “Banning or restricting the use of social media networks is a tool of dictatorial regimes and British Prime Minister David Cameron send the wrong mesage by announcing that he is considering it. The free flow of information is a democracy’s lifeblood and it needs protection too.”
China heavily restricts the use of the media.
Should Britain do the same to help halt these riots?
What do you think?
