Sputnik News: Disintegration of Political System Helps Explain Rising Censorship

Increased social media and tech censorship must be understood in the wider context of the establishment desperately seeking to hold on to what used to be called "the vital centre", a US-based author and economist tells Sputnik. Professor Wolff explained why such behaviour by internet giants must be understood as part of a wider collapse of the economic system, and the attempts of those who already hold power to reaffirm and consolidate their ever weakening position.

    I too am very grateful for this place to vent.

    Because just as the Russian Revolution Shook the World generating general strikes and other acts of solidarity and struggle closely following it, so, I believe or posit that what’s going on now is a continuation of that spirit or the permanent revolution. The Chinese Revolution sent out seismic waves and now we see, through a communist revolution, the rise of the Middle Empire and the Chinese People’s Republic show the world they know how to play.

    The real danger of the internet is that it is the organizing tool of the people. How you gonna get ‘em back on the farm after they’ve seen Paree.
