I want to say that banning things like books and words is idiotic, since there are bunches of really smart people out there who will be goaded into action by any such restriction. I also see how easily developed nations can devolve into authoritarianism and have to reconsider my statement.

Economic development has little to do with how its population reacts to threats, real or perceived. Strong economy allows for better education and public information but does not entail it.
