    v38 v39  
    77 * __Why do I need I2P?__
    88
    9    * Privacy, a central tenet of human rights, is seeing a rapid erosion around the world as goverments, in league with big media, seek to infringe privacy in the interests of suppressing copyight infringement. The Hadopi Law in France, the Digital Economies Act in the UK and the proposed firewall in Australia are but 3 examples of increasingly repressive legislation that undermines vital freedoms. In addition, repressive governments that seek to censor the internet and punish those that attempt to express themselves politically are also looking to gain even more control over the internet, and their citizens by extension. If you're a whistleblower or political dissident, the case for I2P is clear. If you're an "average Joe", the freedoms you take for granted today may well be lost tomorrow. Be in no doubt, free flow of information requires your active participation, and by running I2P you're not only helping youself but also others who may have their freedom threatened. If you want to preserve the notion of online privacy, running I2P should be a no-brainer!
