Internet censorship should not be permitted, no matter how radical the article or opinion. The government should have no say in the actions of Internet users liking as long as it isn't a crime.

Saying " The government should have no say in the actions of Internet users liking as long as it isn't a crime", that's agreeing to the statement, "censorship should exist in some form on the Internet", that's basically a yes according to 2012 internet society survey. The internet is not owned by an individual but rather owned by several bodies like organizations, corporations, governments, schools, private citizens and service providers. That's the same as the land we live on. Each government has the power over their jurisdiction of land. As long as there is access within the jurisdiction, the government should have the rights to enforce the laws that they want to enforce be it censoring pornography, news or basically any other thing. My argument here is that the internet is similar to land. The government has the decisive action for it's citizen within their jurisdiction.

P.S. I do not support internet censorship and I think it's bull but yeah as long as it doesn't breach any human rights or is a threat to the world it shouldn't be censored.

It depends on the reason why censorship must be done. There's "dark web" which is a haven for criminal activities like child pornography, extreme pornography, shock sites, hacking, drugs, terrorism, etc. These are undesired activities so it would be a very wise decision to censor and block sites that promote these; you will not like to get involved.
