Censorship in mid-20th century Ireland

It's really just a history lesson now, and perhaps it's hard to get worked up about it any more. But once these links would have been banned in Ireland.

Banned in Ireland in the mid-20th century were the following (and just as some kind of belated revenge, most of these links lead to places where the forbidden works can now be sampled):

As I say, it's a history lesson now, and if I were to link to everything that had been banned ever throughout all history, then no country would emerge with their dignity intact.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I like debate. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
