Carrol puts this very well.

However, the question of censorship is also one that is important to the consolidation of a popular movement. A working class that thought the state should decide what is posted on the Web, would be saying that it was not to be trusted with its own decisions. No popular movement could be constructed that Kow-towed to the myth of the unthinking mob, swayed by agitators.
