Trouble is they say these satellites make blocking harder, and people like Paul Bedson come along and explain how magic blockchain does the same thing, but it actually makes it far easier. Blocking the blockchain is like blocking tor or torrents, a ridiculously easy protocol filter.
LEOs however, are just flying American ISPs and thus it would be easy to block/regulate Wikipedia globally via a single order to one ISP instead of 280+ ISP's spread over multiple jurisdictions.
Anyway, I think we have concluded that the best way to destroy Wikipedia is to wait till capitalist tech companies decide to turn it into a consumer product. This will probably happen slowly over time, but could be accelerated by laws/regulation on content. For example this "partnership" which seems to be Google replacing Wikipedia Indonesia.
I complete agree. Like I said before I am sure Google doesn't wait till they have a tremendous fine of the EU because Alexander, Maher, Drmies, Gerlach Dimi, and Romaine have such a good time. Because the alternative is the China option, a national Wiki and wikipedia on black. It is of course foolish to think the "man on the button" can't switch on and off what they want or not. If my gouvernement decides to turn the whole America on black tomorrow, it is black. Or whatever they want and order. Or whatever a judge orders. They are elected, they are in command, they make the make decisions. It is as simple as that.
