Le Mont de Sisyphe
My Photo
Location: Zurich, Switzerland

Je suis beau et intelligent. À part cela, je suis juriste helvète, libéral-conservateur, amateur d'armes, passionné d'histoire et de politique. Je suis libéral et capitaliste convaincu car je pense que c'est cela l'état naturel de l'homme. Je parle le "Schwiizerdütsch" avec un accent zurichois, j'adore la bonne musique, la bière et surtout la femme avec qui je vis.

Swiss Censorship on eBay?

You would think that you'd get to see such sites in communist China only. Yet, if you want to have a closer look at certain things on the internet which do not please the government, you experience state censorship made in Switzerland (note that I did not want to watch or buy any porn or terror items or the like but just take a look at a 60 year old Bayonet).

Dear User:

Unfortunately, access to this particular category or item has been blocked due to legal restrictions in your home country. Based on our discussions with concerned government agencies and eBay community members, we have taken these steps to reduce the chance of inappropriate items being displayed. Regrettably, in some cases this policy may prevent users from accessing items that do not violate the law. At this time, we are working on less restrictive alternatives. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you, and we hope you may find other items of interest on eBay.

Thank You.

So things you may want to look at but which your government does not want you to see, let alone possess, are now called "inappropriate". In some 50 years, people will look back and they will say that that is how everything began, how we let the police state into our homes and how we allowed more and more restrictions to be imposed on our own personal liberty by statists. We are facing an alarming evolution which will ultimately lead to more state, to more taxes and to less liberty. Thus today's political priority is to resist and to limit state power whereever it is possible.
