In any democracy, people base their voting decisions on the information
provided to them by the media. If this information is censored,
manipulated, slanted or otherwise interfered with, people
cannot make informed voting decisions.
Governments, Media and Big Tech seek to impose boundaries on freedom of expression by censoring any views which they consider to fall outside of the Overton Window.
These institutions control the boundaries of this window in order to protect their own financial or political interests. This is just human nature, and it's nothing new.
This is unhealthy in free societies, which require open discussion so that ideas may be assessed on their merits, and the bad discarded.
Without free discussion, the best (and worst) ideas are denied to the public, causing democracy and freedom to stagnate. It is not for politicians or special interest groups to decide which ideas are good or bad. That is a right which should be reserved for the people.
The guiding principle of grollige.com is the spirit of the First Amendment to The Constitution Of The United States, as envisaged by the Founding Fathers.
In practice, this means ignoring artificially-imposed boundaries and indexing material of which the establishment disapproves. This will inevitably include some material which may be considered to be controversial.
If you don't like exposure to heterodox or controversial ideas, grollige.com may not be for you.
If you like what we are trying to do, you can support grollige.com at the following URL(s):
In return for your support, you will get access to regular bulletins on how grollige works, technical discussions, future plans, general developments etc.
Please note that, although there are various levels of support you can give, there is no sliding scale of benefits. This is because people's level of support may be related to their circumstances rather than their level of commitment to freedom. We don't want to deny benefits to anyone on that basis.
