Educate, Castigate but not Regulate


Another imbecile racist blogger, and the community effort to chastise him is the best way for the internet. The anachronistic Sedition Act should be sheathed and let the community embarrass and educate such racist bloggers. This is the best way to deal with racists in the internet. Unless there are threats, instigation of violence or orchestrated hate speech, the law should not be in the picture. Mob justice and fiery rants to isolate a supposed bigot, as long as they don’t threaten or incite violence, is more in tune with the government’s pledged “lighter touch”.
