In a recent post, I wrote about how I felt I had betrayed myself. When I started blogging, I had the intention of being a source of information not available through commercial mass media. I wanted to spark people’s interest and have them question the things around them. Ultimately, I let fear override that intention and I self-censored myself. You can read about it by clicking here.
The first time I heard about self-censorship was in the book Cypherpunks, written by Julian Assange. In the book, they discuss things that are reminiscent of the sort of things written about in George Orwell’s book “1984.” They discuss the concepts of censorship and surveillance.
