The Real Purpose of Censorship

...it is not to prevent our enemies (real or imagined) from acquiring certain information, since they very often manage to do so anyway, but it is to keep the domestic population under control and in line. It is to prevent any sort of widespread challenge to or disbelief in the endless propaganda that governments always spew, but never more so than during a time of war. It is to ensure that the government's version of the "truth" -- that is, the government's neverending propaganda campaign -- maintains a monolithic grip over the majority of information that reaches the public.

As Arthur says, The Truth Is Still Out There.
