Censorship

In most western countries, censorship is enforced by the large privately-owned corporations which own social-media websites like Twitter and Facebook, and popular search engines like Google. Websites which present unapproved facts or opinions are still reachable, but most people will never find them because search engines will not rank their relevance highly, while 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 directly to the linked articles. EU legislators are not competent in IT, and if you are, you have various ways of getting to the banned sites wherever you are; but we cannot take the legal risk of helping you.
