"Absent from Google’s French and German listings are Web sites that are anti-Semitic, pro-Nazi, or related to white supremacy, according to a new report from Harvard University’s Berkman Center. Also banned is Jesus-is-lord.com, a fundamentalist Christian site that is adamantly opposed to abortion."
If you, like me, live in a thought police State such as France or Germany, make sure to use google.com and not the self-censored local versions. Soviet revisionism, which pointed the finger on Nazi crimes to divert attention from its own wrongdoing (starting with its non-aggression pact with said Nazis), still survives in continental Europe. Selective memory is one of the worse intellectual dishonesties, and when it’s enforced by law, that’s called fascism. Wait, isn’t it what these laws are supposed to repel?

I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
