It should come as no surprise to anyone, California has license plates too. However, these are only mandatory at the back of the car. For a few years now, you have been able to choose the black and yellow layout again for an additional charge, similar to our ÖHR license plate.
What surprised me this year were temporary license plates that you can print out at home and put on the car as a paper version. A QR code ensures that you can check their legality. Their validity period is also printed legibly.
And just as I was getting used to the paper license plates, I saw my first two digital license plates, arguably some kind of tray in the shape of an ordinary license plate. However, I couldn't find out what it was all about.
Even during my stay here in California, I cannot avoid sending out my monthly newsletter. And so, since yesterday, two of these have been on the way to the respective subscribers again. I also regularly receive feedback from one of these circulars as to whether they are at least opened by the recipient. According to statistics, on average, less than 30% of recipients open the newsletter. Irrespective of this, I also have to state that the group of recipients has more than halved in less than two years. I am all the more pleased when I receive feedback on the circulars. Because otherwise one could well come to the conclusion that one is writing against walls. In contrast to a personal weblog, one would like to reach one or the other reader with a newsletter.
In the circular I mentioned, I wrote about the fact that things are crumbling everywhere in Europe, not just among the various readerships. Anyone who would like to know more about this is welcome to do so Read the newsletter linked here.
Hans Müller wrote in his post yesterday about the new American culture war and how right-wing circles no longer shy away from censorship. His statements are very conclusive and, in my opinion, also correct.
He also makes a detour to Europe, more precisely to Hungary, where one of the role models of today's German conservatives is at home. Interestingly, they are currently even making a pilgrimage to Florida, what Hans Müller could have mentioned.
but would have to mention Hans Müller have to realize that censorship is commonplace even here in Germany. Not like in the USA, where the future election victories of the Republicans are to be guaranteed, but rather from a purely "left" ideological point of view. We also remove children's books from school and library shelves and entire series of books or authors have to be rewritten.
I believe that censorship, for whatever reason, is a very terrible and extremely dangerous thing. And neither the books nor later the people will care why they are burned at the stake - no ideology can justify censorship!
I'm sorry the post wasn't helpful to you!
