But you aren´t broadcasting messages, or are you?

If they mean something like "make data accessible", the only way to be
compliant with such a law is by not providing public access.  How do you
distinguish between things that are contrary to basic human dignity and
things that aren´t, and how do you keep track of all existing sources of
data so that you can decide whether you need to block them or not?  Or who
gets to decide?

For example, I could argue that tracking peoples online activities, storing
their data any longer than is unavoidable for the purpose they were gathered
for, gathering data about people without their explicit consent and displaying
any advertisements in public is against basic human dignity.  All these take
away my freedom, and I want to be protected against them and require the means
to stay in control of my data and thus of my life.  Freedom and being able to
have control of ones own life certainly falls under basic human dignity.

Someone else could argue against this.  You would need to block all access to
this mailing list because a judge might find it against basic human dignity
that someone is saying something else.

You might also need to block all access to information about how immigrants
are being treated in Europe because the way at least some of them could
be against basic human dignity.

And what right does the French government have to demand such censorship?
This kind of censorship is against human dignity.
