Treat us with respect

Syrian blogger Golaniya on his government’s censorship of the internet and its recent banning of Facebook:

What bothers me is that we are not treated as peers with the government, as if we cannot rightly judge what’s good and what’s bad for us … it is not only about censoring thoughts and freedom of speech but we people, Syrian people, are considered by our government as inferior minds who cannot build a reasonable judgment if given freedom.
