American Businesses Shouldn't Give in to Chinese Censorship

"The U.S. consumer should take a firm stand and potentially boycott those organizations that continue to give in to the draconian whims of the Communist Party."

Heroes of Progress

Heroes of Progress is a series of articles I write for HumanProgress.org. This bi-weekly column provides a short introduction to unsung heroes who have made an extraordinary contribution to the well-being of humanity.

So far, the column has been well received and has been praised by many public figures including Bill Gates, Steven Pinker, and Jordan Peterson, to name a few. 

When fifty heroes have been written about, the column will be turned into a short book.

Pt. 18: Paul Hermann Muller
