As Satanists many of us are already aware that good and evil is subjective, yet many continue to be caught by this delusion in areas such as censorship. Censorship is a tool, like my knife, it is how censorship is used that makes it either a tool of tyranny or one that is constructive. My knife can be used to slice cheese or kill someone. Censorship such as Akismet on this blog censors spam, but the censorship of President Obama against whistle blowers who reveal corrupt practices in his government is a harmful form of censorship.
I hope people can get away from the notion that censorship is evil in all cases. Censorship is a way of placing boundaries that filter out harmful elements, such as a firewall and virus software protects my computer from viruses. I have no desire to let random strangers into my home, access to my bank account or steal one of my kidneys. I have boundaries to protect my life from undesirable outcomes, which is a form of censorship.
On this blog I do censor comments. I have deleted comments that are spam, off-topic, retarded, racist and personally abusive. This blog is my personal space, and I will with maximum prejudice have authority over my personal spaces in life. I have had angry commentators tell me I am evil for censoring their abusive comments, but then I point out to them censorship is a tool, and their claims of authority to be able to write whatever they like wherever they like is a delusion.
