Thanks for posting A must read with regards to the recent sanctions on Tornado Cash and concerns over censorship at the base layer; such as validators potentially having to censor blocks when Ethereum switches to POS. Paradigm makes a convincing argument here as to why base layer censorship should not be used and the legal grounds against it.

"Paradigm strongly believes that crypto's base layer should not be required to monitor or censor transactions in order to comply with sanctions. Crypto networks like Bitcoin and Ethereum are global infrastructure systems akin to telephone networks, the Internet, etc. Censorship at the base layer compromises the neutrality of these crypto networks, and can lead to the networks themselves becoming unstable (potential forks, re-orgs)."
