A MUST see/hear – An OUTSTANDING conversation (although War party’s “unprovoked” Ukraine horror was not discussed – although the same odious players and same immense monstrous censorship net)

#1963 – Michael Shellenberger – The Joe Rogan Experience

I listened and it was a very interesting conversation focusing on government censorship.

Thank you - a conversation impossible to hear on any of US state media.

Mudie's libraries must have been a wonderful resource for a lot of people. I wonder how much the new publicly funded libraries that grew up later were influenced by his standards of "suitable books" for the average person.

I wonder if Jane and Maria Porter were published by Mundie?

That's an interesting question. Is there any record of which books Mudie made available and which ones were rejected?

Not that I could find but interestingly...the University of Illinois holds a lot of Mudie's papers and some are digitized. Include letters from Ruskin, Tennyson and Queen Victoria--
