I’m not going to add much of my own to this, because it’s unnecessary.

Naomi Wolf – one of the very best researchers and independent journalists out there – thorougly explains the matter in this video and discusses its implications.

Media, as far as I can tell, has said absolutely nothing about this: Naomi is the only person I’ve seen discuss this (a hat-tip to Alan Carroll on Facebook, who pointed me to it), and you should watch the video to get a good sense of what the implications are.

She writes, ‘Just when you think things can’t get more undemocratic… HR 221 is the Antisemitism Bill that passed last Friday… “under suspension of rules”, meaning without normal democratic debate and public voting…’

Did ‘HR 221’ make any coverage in any newspapers, news channels or significant public forums? Not that I know of. (more…)

This is an article about censorship – particularly, in this latest instance, involving (unfortunately) the very platform I am publishing on right now: and whether it will continue to be as safe or as accomodating a space for blogs like this one as it has been until now.

But first, I’m putting up this notification – because I suspect there’s a real chance this website/blog could get taken down at any time.

I’m creating a back-up blog of all of this site’s archived content. I’ll explain why in the article below. But should The Burning Blogger of Bedlam be swept up in a censorship purge that appears to be occurring, I will activate the other site and begin publishing my current/future articles over there, at least as a temporary solution to what is – presumably – going to be an ongoing problem.

So any readers, subscribers or friends who want to continue with me – or continue following my articles – will have to go that site and subscribe over there in the event of *this site* disappearing.

However, I can’t make that site ‘active’ yet – because it’ll create duplicated-content problems while this WordPress site is still running. So that site will not be going live until it becomes necessary (i.e: if or when this site goes down). (more…)
