Article: “This Week in Censorship” I don’t see the point in this “redirect.”  The greatest part of the internet is having access to people and information from all over the world.  Why limit it?  If people cannot express themselves openly on a blog that is about their own ideas and opinions then what’s the point of … Continue reading
