1. Paypal is detrimental to civil liberties:
1. PayPal has a history [littered](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PayPal#Criticism) with power-abusing payment blockades that are often politically motivated to benefit right-wing agendas. E.g.:
1. PayPal [froze accounts for left-wing journalists (Consortium News & MintPress)][frozemedia] apparently to hinder critics of Putin’s war in Ukraine.
1. PayPal [blocked Iraq War resisters](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PayPal#Criticism).
1. PayPal [blocked Wikileaks](https://www.forbes.com/sites/andygreenberg/2010/12/07/visa-mastercard-move-to-choke-wikileaks).
1. PayPal [blocked](https://www.economist.com/europe/2015/05/13/boris-nemtsovs-parting-shot) an account intended to raise money for the distribution of Boris Nemtsov's report "Putin. War", which details Russia's intervention in Ukraine.
