Banned in Turkey

A correspondent from Turkey informs me that he can no longer access my web site. I have no trouble accessing it from the U.S., so my guess is that it has been deliberately blocked by the Turkish authorities.

No idea why. I can't remember ever discussing Armenians, Kurds, or Kemal Ataturk either here or on the web site.

The only thing I know about Kemal Ataturk is that he once had an entire menagerie named Abdul.

Just accessed it through my Turkey VPN connection. Probably something else going on.

Thomas:

The claim was about my web page, not my blog.

I'm cynical enough to suspect that the fact that you are a Libertarian is probably good enough given that the current Turkish regime is Marxist with a strong Islamist base. Doubly so when we consider that you are one of today's better economists and their own economy is predictably on the fritz. Censors tend to be more pre-emptive than rational with some of the choices they make in any event. @_@

Maybe they don't like your discussion on Islamic Legal Systems. I would be surprised if it didn't gain some degree of traction in the Middle East and if there wasn't pushback.

Could be they're cracking down on Anarchists too given the Kurdish situation.
