Anti-Censorship For a long time, censorship has existed. In the ancient Egyptian empire, nothing negative could be said about the gods. When America was an English colony, if anyone spoke out against the King of England, it was considered treason. In the pre-civil war period, books like "Uncle Tom's Cabin" were banned in the south. And even today, censorship laws have been implemented on the internet. In all these cases ,it did nothing positive. The Egyptian empire collapsed, The U
