Pål Steigan is now boycotted from Facebook after writing in favour of Vladimir Putin. Know that freedom of speech is just a joke in Norway. The PC (Politically Correct) have many kinds of sublime oppressional instruments. Putin is of course a despot, but he's a pragmatic one. Mark Zuckerberg is not so pragmatic. And his "gift" is just a reorganization for becoming more effective in political oppression.
|Steigan with some of his old friends. Mao was an insane despot, just like Zuckerberg. Russia is at least "blessed" with a pragmatic despot.|
Russian downloaders of Permaliv last week:
Censorship on Facebook seems to be a trend which extends far beyond sex offenders. Pål Steigan has also reported an incident of censorship and written more about the worrisome political power of Facebook as well as their devious finances and phony charity. Steigan is a communist blogger who ironically has more faith in capitalism than I do, since he does not believe collapse is imminent. Despite his leftist background, his blog is very honest and informative, and at this stage of the game for industrial civilization it doesn’t really matter whether one is a communist or a libertarian because neither ideology can accomplish anything when faced with deflationary collapse. What matters is to preserve as much freedom as possible for as long as we can, and for that I commend efforts from all across the political spectrum. Even the mainstream leftist publication Klassekampen is starting to express queasiness about Facebook’s censorship these days. - Eivind Berge
