One Charedi Internet Filter Includes Political Censorship as Well

How bad is the lack of responsibilitarianism\libertarianism in the Israeli Charedi community?

Well, I just learned a certain major Israeli internet filtering service blocks news websites which criticize Charedi politicians “excessively” (and they have “high standards”, believe me). Other filtering companies might be doing the same.

Got that? They don’t just block women’s images or gambling. They block out all political change, as well, since the Gedolim are necessarily supportive of all Charedi politicians. Not China, or at the state’s behest.

I don’t have a problem with private business decisions. Let them go bankrupt. My point is this doesn’t hurt them, perhaps it even helps them. That’s a reflection of us.
