Censorship

This war has ushered in a level, and magnitude, and intensity of a censorship regime unprecedented in the West. - Glenn Greenwald, April 2022.

In most western countries, censorship is enforced by the large privately-owned corporations which own search engines and social-media websites like Twitter, youtube and Facebook. Websites which present unapproved facts or opinions are still reachable, but most people will never find them because any links to them, or discussions referring to them, will be deleted. Paypal is a powerful enforcer of censorship: sites which expose inconvenient facts, or opinion contrary to the official line, are cut off from Paypal funding.

Within the European Union, however, news sources presenting news or comment inconsistent with NATO propaganda are blocked by law. We can bring you headlines from Russia Today, for example, but if your internet connection is in the EU you will not be able to go to the linked articles.
