For anonymity, security, and so that the network is decentralised and can't be shut down. It basically could remove the almost godlike powers that Big Tech giants have at the moment.
Don't need blockchain for any of that. It doesn't provide anonymity. It provides security that transactions can't be faked. It can work decentralised or centralised - it doesn't do any decentralisation itself. It can easily be shut down (if not decentralised).

I've just done test search using 4 different search providers with the search phrase: "Have the Big Tech Giants got too much power" (the title of this tread)

duckduckgo.com returned this thread.
Google.com didn't return this article (I scanned several pages of results).
Neither did Bing.com (Microsoft's search engine)
Yandex.com (a Russian search service) did return it.
I did the same - first hit on google was this page.
