The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Big Brother is Watching

For John, BLUFYes, we wish to be safe, but we also believe we should be safe in our ideas.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Here is the sub-headline:

Clicking the “wrong” link can get you interrogated by the authorities—and the situation may soon get worse.

From Reason, by Writer J.D. Tuccille, 20 November 2018.

Here is the lede:

When you have an overreaching government "anti-terrorism" program tasked with countering violent ideological messages, anything that rubs officialdom the wrong way starts looking like extremist propaganda, ripe for intervention.  That includes, it turns out, a standard-issue lefty reading-assignment at England's University of Reading:  Cautious about how the message might be perceived, school officials warned students reading Our Morals:  The Ethics of Revolution "not to access it on personal devices, to read it only in a secure setting, and not to leave it lying around where it might be spotted" so as to avoid the attention of the "Prevent" program.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
