We've just received a 30-day ban for posting this article on Facebook.
This is news and are not our words!

Voice Of Europe’s Facebook account was suspended for 30 days after they shared an article which referenced Czech president Vaclav Klaus’ book.

Well, it has been clear for some time that we do not have to wait for Zuckerberg’s ‘AI censors’ to find ourselves in an Orwellian nightmare. We are already there.
