Countries signing trade agreements with each other have started to include a sneaky paragraph 'guaranteeing that signatories on both sides block user access to Pirate and IP/Copyright infringing websites at ISP level'.

 

Translation: 'You will no longer be able to BROWSE TO ANY SITE WE DO NOT LIKE'.

The blocking approach was still relatively controversial at the start of the last decade but it’s increasingly being normalized. Dozens of countries have legal or procedural options to request blockades today.

Australia and the UK are among the countries that have robust site-blocking legislation in place. ISPs in both countries are required to prevent subscribers from accessing thousands of domain names, with more being added every few months.

They will try but it will fail, there many ways to overcome any sort of censorship even in China, can not speak for N Korea though but i suspect even that country has its ways. As for ISP's being the police of the net, if indeed that were possible then there is the tried and tested manual way of getting the news so to speak, back in the day floppy disks were handed around like sweets, there are even walls with thumb drives embedded into to share info, yep resistance is futile, YAWN, God this argument is tiring, and when they find out that the money stops flowing in the direction they want, then i guess so will the restrictions, definitely a bumpy road ahead but then taking a break from the net aint a bad thing in the end, imagine if everyone just stopped using it for even a day, call it the world wide disconNET day, that should see some push back, lol!!!

ISP level blocking is dangerous, because the inevitable next step is to block all "disinformation", "misinformation", "conspiracy theories" bla bla bla at ISP level as well.

 

ISP's can easily block VPN traffic as well.

 

Most VPN services are also operated by Chinese companies, or otherwise monitored.
