Bildy went on to note that governments must ensure that a citizen’s ability to communicate freely their ideas and strategies must be respected. “Any attempt to muzzle peoples’ ability to communicate their theories, ideas, strategies or other viewpoints that go against the government’s current position is censorship and it is unconstitutional,” Bildy said. “It also sounds like a convenient continuation of this government’s efforts to monitor and control information on the internet. People shouldn’t take advantage of a crisis to defraud others; but likewise, the government shouldn’t take advantage of a crisis to start censoring expression.”
