England’s youths are angry and rioting. And, because it’s 2011, they’re using technology to organize. Well, as much as a violent mob can be organized.

But British Prime Minister David Cameron wants to cut them off. He’s very, very wrong. And he’s wrong for the exact same reason that the governments of Saudi Arabia and UAE were wrong a year ago.

Cutting off the use of Twitter, Facebook, BBM, or any other digital means of discussion, is an infringement upon an entire society—not just the destructive malcontents. Cameron’s plan—if you can even call it that—would target individuals suspected of riot plotting, and then block their access to BBM and social networks.
