Bulletin N° 1031
March 26, 2021
Subject: Fascism, both friendly and not so friendly.
Dear Colleagues and Friends of Ceimsa,
The monopoly abuse today in the communication industry is flagrant where perfunctory censorship is rampant. Recently, my personal correspondence with “Friends of Ceimsa” (which contains the etiquette: “If you would like to be removed from this mailing list, please indicate so by return mail./Pour se désinscrire de cette liste, renvoyez svp ce courriel avec votre demande. ») was once again interrupted by my gmail.com server at Google with the inexplicable warning: “You have reached a limit for sending mail. Your message was not sent.” When I tried to send this mail with another server, wanadoo.fr at Orange, it was again blocked, this time with the incredulous explanation: “Le mail . . . n’a pu être envoyé car l’adresse mail d’au moins un destinataire est invalide.”
No further explanation for this corporate censorship was tendered. The contents of this correspondence were two internet links: the first, connecting to YouTube, was an interview with former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter; the second, at Reddit.com, was a lecture by Harvard University Professor John J. Mearsheimer.
It seems strange that corporate capitalism would reach so low as to censor personal correspondence within the context of a completely voluntary association.
Such acts of desperation do not bode well ….

There's going to be a very rude awakening from this vast Western propaganda dream of "the invasion of Ukraine"
Some truths about the current carnival of lies now being pumped out by "our free press"
