Governments don't need to suppress your rights these days.

Instead, they privatize the task and let corporate interests do it for them:
On the sidelines of a United Nations luncheon on Saturday, Merkel was caught on a hot mic pressing Zuckerberg about social media posts about the wave of Syrian refugees entering Germany, the publication reported.

The Facebook CEO was overheard responding that "we need to do some work" on curtailing anti-immigrant posts about the refugee crisis. "Are you working on this?" Merkel asked in English, to which Zuckerberg replied in the affirmative before the transmission was disrupted.
Sure, you have rights...just don't exercise them unless you want "private enterprise" to lower the boom.

Remember when the West got its boxers in a wad about Iran and China censoring the internet?
