Censorship, Freedom of Speech, and Blogs:
Heads Up!

Censorship on the Web, from

"Online Radio Tonight - Thursday, January 17

Political Vindication show

'An assault on free Speech'

Show starts at 9pm Eastern & UK time 2am"

You may not agree with what he says, but the powers that be seem to want "Lionheart" off the Web. That's censorship, and it should concern everyone with a blog, a website, or an opinion.

I wrote about Lionheart before: "Which Needs Protecting: People's Feelings, or Freedom of Speech?" (January 5, 2008).
This post repeated on "Apathetic Lemming of the North."

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
