Yesterday and overnight, a number of alternative channels were blocked or demonetized on Youtube. Youtube is owned by Google, which also hosts Blogger, the platform for this blog and my other blog, Histories of Things to Come. I will have to migrate content to back it up on another platform and welcome suggestions from readers. I will elaborate on this problem in another post, later today.

In case of censorship and you find my blogs, Histories of Things to Come and The Dragonfly closed or restricted, please refer to my Vocal Media blog and my home Website, LCDOUGLASS.COM, where you can join my newsletter at the bottom of the page.

If my gmail goes down, you can DM me here or at my other social media pages:
