One of the most intriguing things about the Internet is its effect on censorship. The Internet was designed to be non-centralized so it could survive a nuclear attack on the USA, and hence is very robust. If part of it is damaged, the information just routes around the damaged part. A popular saying is that the Internet reacts to censorship like damage - it routes around it.
It is ultimately impossible for a government, or even all governments, to censor the Internet, except by destroying it, and any government which destroys the Internet in its own region will bring forward its own demise.
The Internet is six billion people voting every time they click their mouse.
