Modern Censorship is Running Amok

I understand the idea about pulling down statues, burning books, and trying to change how history is viewed, but I am concerned about censorship.

Changing a point of view can be done without destruction, like burning books, toppling statues, defacing graves, and so on. People don’t need to destroy things in order to change perspective.

The people in history had a different perspective, a different lifestyle.… Read the rest

Firefox Web Browser Can Make the Internet Easier to Read

I’ve been having a lot of trouble seeing clearly when trying to read websites. The style seems to be small, pale grey fonts which are very hard to read. No problem for a computer, or other machines.
