We are witnessing a modern version of book burning today. Through censorship, de-platforming and bans, published works are being increasingly erased by the mediums they exist in for 'unacceptable' views.

Let the jurisdictional arbitrage begin!
Free private cities: special economic zones on steroids 🏙
Would love to see this concept develop and get involved with projects in Asia-Pacific.
