Dictionarydotcom defines “eccentric” as “deviating from the recognized or customary character, practice, etc.” and it’s not necessarily pejorative to unclosed minds. It really means finding lateral solutions to things or not automatically being a sheep and accepting “given” facts before they can be justified.
When we find these relate to freedoms being restricted, it’s up to us to present them on a blog dedicated to freedom, which is hardly eccentric but more “centric”, in that it relates to our prime directive – posts about liberty.
Political censorship, according to Wiki, “occurs when governments hold back information from their citizens. This is often done to exert control over the populace and prevent free expression that might foment rebellion.” So if someone tries to restrict someone posting on certain topics then, despite commendable attempts to assure readers that that is not censorship [censorship is only what someone else, a bete noir, does] then it smells mightily like censorship to me.
Then again, I’m eccentric.
If you look at my last post on WTC7 and NIST’s lying, it’s not immediately apparent what it has to do with freedom [unless your mind is open] but you only need look at Angry Exile‘s post before it to see what followed 911. He set it out in great detail and it has everything to do with freedom [although, having done it, he doesn’t accept the WTC7 premise].
This youtube below was sent to me by a blogger most of us know and it sums up, in a few minutes, why it’s necessary to bang on about 911 and freedom:
