Today’s infographic comes from showing the most prolific governments who censor the internet for its people and the number of people affected by the filters. It probably doesn’t shock you that I’m against internet censorship of any kind. But until you think of the pure numbers, you don’t really understand how many people it affects.

But it doesn’t make it easy to get around. One can only hope that the citizens of these countries figure out how to get around these filters without retaliation. That is, if they want to.
