No Rights For Anarchists

Is this blog banned in Russia?

Vladimir Putin

I’m not sure. But a friend of mine who’s currently in Kyrgyzstan, connecting to the internet through a Russian server, says he can’t access my blog. Of course it might just be a technical glitch. But maybe Putin is really, really averse to Doctor Who spoilers.

Closer to home, here in the u.s. of a. it turns out that being a “known and admitted anarchist” is grounds for denying someone’s request under the Freedom of Information Act. (CHT François T.)

My favourite bit: the authorities want the information they inadvertently released to be “returned.” I recall a similar request being made of Wikileaks. Our rulers don’t even grasp the concept of information.
