It sets up a new server running L2TP/IPsec, OpenSSH, OpenVPN, Shadowsocks, Stunnel, and a Tor bridge. It also generates custom configuration instructions for all of these services. At the end of the run you are given an HTML file with instructions that can be shared with friends, family members, or fellow activists that will help them connect to the new server.

The use case is to make it easier for people to set up servers that allow individuals who live in countries where the Internet is being blocked to circumvent these restrictions.

"Silence censorship" is meant to be sort of funny, but the idea is that censors have had it too easy for too long, and an automated and repeatable method of setting up an anti-censorship server can help change that.

"Automate the effect" is meant to reflect the fact that you can start as many of these servers as you want. If a country starts censoring the Internet, more servers will spring up in response.
