Ok, this has nothing at all to do with lettering. But in a time when so called democracies shut down an internet site because they cannot think of anything else to do; when so called democracies seek to trump up charges against an individual because they run frightened; then it is time for all of us to shout ENOUGH. I had heard that the WikiLeaks domain name had been ‘withdrawn’ by its Californian host because of so-called ‘cyber attacks’. Attacks presumably driven by US intelligence. When it was suggested a CH address had been opened I went there to be told by Safari that
Safari can’t open the page.
Safari can’t open the page “http://188.8.131.52/” because the server where this page is located isn’t responding. [but see below – updated 4/12/2010]
F*** me. What is going on! Perhaps the US intelligence, run by President Barrack Obama, a Noble Peace Prize winner, can explain that. Perhaps they will shut me down for being such a rebel….
And when you read such tripe from the right-wing UK press such as this
ones heart sinks. But remember the Daily Mail is about as Fascist as you can get in Britain without actually being charged for Treason. As a journalist I find myself disgusted at how naive other journalists can be. But I have to remember that they sold their souls long ago.
We have entered, almost unknowingly, a new paradigm. Hello world without frontiers – this is democracy folks. Get used to it…
