Slashdot points to an interesting article on US funding Internet anonymizers to allow Iranians to communicate with the outside world. The system has instructions in Farsi and allows Iranians to browse the web free of government censorship.
Whoever is doing this deserves a big raise. This is exactly what we should be doing – giving the people of Iran the tools to resist the oppression of the mullahs. This invaluable window to the outside world gives hope to thousands of Iranians who would otherwise not be able to communicate with the outside world.
By giving the Iranian people the tools to see the outside world and communicate with each other it will help in the creation of a free and democratic Iran. This is a government program that does what it should do, and this is one function of government I’d be proud to support.
