That's honestly the part that is even scarier to me than the suppression of free speech for the sake of an agenda. Any new understanding about people, the universe, and how the world works is something that could potentially have amazing and incredible impacts people's quality of life - even if such effects are utterly unforeseen at the time the research is being done. You never know what new information will in some way contribute toward something unarguably good for mankind, and a practice of silencing it is unarguably bad for mankind.

...And that's to say nothing of the slippery slope...
