A false definition of censorship can not lawfully be expanded to include criminal acts; yelling fire in a crowded theater, when there is no fire for example.

    Censorship by any group is usually done to protect us from ourselves. The quote nails it.

    Censorship, 'last' resort? That's putting it mildly. It's all scripted out of whole cloth now. Boobs and bigots are the bread and butter of the politicos and their propagandists. The promotion of boob-ism and bigotry is top on the list of 'Big Media' in most of its content for public consumption. It's not even denied any more, creators and producers are now being demanded they write-in characters that represent their class. Song writers are rebuked for not promoting some SJW cause. News reports are written in advance of the events, in concert with deep state cover-ups. Staged 'live' news scenes. Crisis actors following the playbook. The incestuous relationships between the CIA/FBI and the Big Media, they are the opinion-makers writing the narrative. Make no mistake, it is a battle for the minds of the boobs and the bigots, a cash cow to milk forever.
