If you consider censorship as a result of brainwashing and coercion than it
is far more than two.

Libtech et al are run by such censors, they censor libertarian,

This doesn't appear true to me.  It looks more like people with the goal of
censorship influence communities and the people running them, whereas the
people running them are often anti-censorship.  Think of the dns hijinks
the cypherpunks list had to contend with recently.  The hackerspaces.org
list has had server issues preventing much list activity and new
subscriptions for months (hopefully fixed by now? haven't checked.  might
need relevant reminders at their meetings).

When a public list is used to stimulate controversial discourse people are
eventually hired by a third party to suppress whatever discourse their job
is to suppress.  Consider if we were planning and succeeding at, in an
organised manner, the takedown of the chinese military.  We'd been seen as
a military threat and casually stopped.

These things are obvious, but need to be done to reach the goal.

That includes putting the technology in the hands of the people rather than
private behavior markets.
