The moves to censor the Internet are not limited to Google. The WSWS has documented the role of other Internet companies, including Facebook and YouTube, in seeking to restrict online content.
Today, we report on a revealing incident--the moves by Amazon to delete over 1,000 negative reviews of Hillary Clinton's new book.
Earlier this week, WSWS writer Bill Van Auken exposed the role of the New York Times in using the Democrats' anti-Russia campaign to support Internet censorship. Clinton makes the same argument in her book. The implications are sinister. The drive to war is closely tied to the efforts to suppress free speech, and particularly socialist opposition to the ruling class.
It is no surprise that the Democrats are intensifying their campaign for Internet censorship even as they cozy up to the Trump administration to push border militarization, tax cuts, and militarism.
