Project Censored listed the Multinational Agreement on
Investment’s threat to U.S.

Project Censored listed the Multinational Agreement on Investment’s threat to U.S. sovereignty as the most censored story of the past year. According to alternative media sources, the MAI will give corporations close to the same rights and powers as sovereign nations. Project Censored highlights stories they believe the public should know about that have not hit the mainstream press. Other censored stories include how Monsanto Company’s terminator technology forces farmers to buy seeds year after year; how the U.S. government brings about deaths of Iraqi children through sanctions; and how the U.S. government subverted the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty with its own underground test.

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)
