Speedpasses are free, they come with admission (facepalm) everyone gets them
No, in a broader sense, that which causes the best net result often isn't that which is appreciated most.
Often the way of getting somewhere sucks -- might even be hugely unethical or illegal -- but if the net end result is undoubtedly positive, then isn't it better that way?
That's of course just a lousy excuse for genocide, but if you take censorship as an example then it can be good. For example a large political scandal, if resolved internally, is easily handled, but if the press finds out then there'll suddenly be riots and national pressure. If censorship will stop people from finding out about an issue that can be handled easily, the net result is much better than if people did find out.
Nazi and Japanese experimentations are often like this. I do believe that since it was already done, the people that did it should suffer the full extent of the law HOWEVER their data MUST not be destroyed. It must be utilized so yes, it is better.
This is one reason why Chinese censorship works quite well AND why they haven't stopped doing it.
HOWEVER a slightly more ideal way of that is what is featured in GITS-SAC where the news can be censored for an amount of time by law so that this stuff could be resolved before going public. The PRC has not reached this point yet as a big portion of its area is still farming and poor people.
