It wasn't that long ago that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the de facto ruler of the kingdom, was seen as someone who would modernize his country.

Authored by

The Democratic members of Congress staying mum on net neutrality have all taken campaign contributions from major telecom companies, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

To be clear, getting a campaign contribution from a telecom company does not preclude one from supporting net neutrality regulations.

The fact that they have also pocketed a few thousand from the same corporations that want to keep net neutrality repealed is worth noting. »

In academia, censorship and conformity have become the norm

The problem has been increasing and was the reason I chose to leave the field of sex research.

In the last several months alone, multiple controversies involving academic censorship have emerged.

I would also suggest taking note of what a professor chooses to post on social media, especially if it’s political content. »
