Blogspot Blocked in India

I am not an erudite man. I am not really capable of unshipping a voluminous discourse on free speech and the functioning of a free society and how I feel aggravated and all that. I will say it the way I can:

The Emperor: [to the Senate] In order to ensure our security and continuing stability, the Republic will be reorganized into the first Galactic Empire, for a safe and secure society which I assure you will last for ten thousand years.
[Senate fills with enormous applause]
Padme: [to Bail Organa] So this is how liberty dies... with thunderous applause.
From Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

I am with the feeling. Am very very angry that this has been done. Whatever happened to 'freedom of expression' ? I am not the kind who take trouble to bring up the 'freedom of expression' issue to make the censor board hold their scissors for the latest Mallika Sherawat flick. But i feel strongly about this. I really do. They are infringing on our fundamental rights!

That was beautifully put. May the force be with the bloggers.
