Ain't that the truth.

In his New York Times column, Thomas L. Friedman talks about the frightening divisiveness and rise of extremism in American politics.

Amongst it is a spot-on comment about the blogosphere, and the internet in general:

...a blogosphere that at its best enriches our debates, adding new checks on the establishment, and at its worst coarsens our debates to a whole new level, giving a new power to anonymous slanderers to send lies around the world.

The column is here.

I think that some sort of censorship would be justifiable. We need to stop the lies.
