Censoring the internet would destroy the best foundation for freedom of speech since the dawn of man, and turn it into the greatest weapon of oppression since the invention of swords.

I think the invention of tanks and bombs and things oppressed us more than the invention of swords. Swords are cheap and easy to make, if, say, a military from a long time ago came to attack a town the town could defend themselves from the government as all would be on equal footing due to all having swords. Since only the government can afford planes and tanks and bombs, these oppress people more since we can't match up to them.

This is true, but along with the creation of tanks came globalization, which counteracts all of that (if we are being oppressed by our government we can get help internationally, like the freedom-fighters across Europe during WWII. And swords haven't always been easy to make) However,swords are the very symbol of physical might, and have been since they were invented. Furthermore, they have always been associated with nobility, who used them for oppressing most of the population.

I think his point was that even if the other guy had a sword you could still kick his ass with a pitch fork or any other weapon. if someone has a tank, unless you have some explosives and creativity your ******.
