New UK counter-terror laws come into force today – watch those clicks, people. You see, terrorist propag... NOOO! Alexa ignore us!


What are they trying to prevent - instant brainwash?

Is such law based on the assumption that terrorist propaganda, in a way, _creates_ more terrorists? So that a normal, law-abiding citizen just reads through some BS posted online and thinks: "Hey, killing people and using $DEITY or $IDEOLOGY as a pretense might be a great idea after all"?

Is it instant brainwash that should be prevented by this law?

Looks like someone watched too much Sci-Fi...

This is an interesting interpretation of "free will" and free speak that seems to form the rationale of this law.

Also note that the definition of what might be regarded as terror OR propaganda is rather foggy ...
