    I don't see anyone arguing against a firewall anymore. I guess it's no longer an issue.

    Public schools are just that: public. It is not the administrator's computer to do as he likes with. He answers to the Federal government.

    The Post-Autistic Economics Network has grown bold enough to demand that federally-funded economics associations censure anybody who displays “axiom-happy behavior,” as this is considered symptomatic of autism.

This silence, this indifference to causing human suffering, constitutes grave moral failure. It also gives license to economists to continue to indulge in axiom-happy behaviour.
    At this early stage of the Post-Autistic Movement, the most obvious point of comparison with the Nazis is their campaign to ban academic papers. However, it would not come as a surprise to learn that they have also bribed and/or intimidated computer filter companies to block sites guilty of “axiom-happy behavior.”

    If there is anybody here who has access to a high school computer, I would be interested in learning whether the Post-Autistic Economics Network has succeeded in blocking my economics site.
    Is the following quote reckless in the extreme? Then read my 2008 paper about monetary theory:

    Well, firewalls are tools...As in, only as good as the person using/designing them.
