You're completely missing the point here.
Sure, the zombification of people is a serious issue, but there are plenty of causes for that. Pretty much any addiction, of which there are many, will cause the same destruction to a family unit. Believe me, as a people we've been isolating ourselves for a long time now.
But, the free and instantaneous exchange of information on a global scale can never be considered a bad thing. If you mean 'the education system' is propaganda, sure I'm with you there. But technology has allowed easy access to knowledge far above that which is offered in our schools, so how is that a bad thing?
Back on topic, communication and flow of information is key in such a volatile situation like this. For the Egyptian people to be robbed of their ability to easily communicate with each other, and with the world abroad, is absolutely unforgivable.
Props to Google for helping out, although I'm sure they're evil
