No need to be a paranoid schizophrenic to be aware that every `word printed` on a blog or anywhere on the internet (Facebook, Twitter and All) is wide open to prying eyes and for one to be absolutely private one almost has to hide in a corner of his room and write down things with a pencil in dim light. But what good is that one would say?

Even though there are dark forces at work here even in the so-called free western world as we hear daily in Australia and everywhere else I suppose, censorship raises his dark head every day and night.

Big Brother wants to have a veto right on what you say and think.

As Walt Whitman said the dirtiest book is the expurgated one. Once you give way to censorship and its ugly head there is no end to it and your head could go too because once you start burning books, burning people is a very small step. And you end up either in fear of a Holy Inquisition or Sharia Law applied by questionable vicars of what is allowed and what is not.
