Book burning was a feature of the Middle Ages. It was adopted by the Ruling Powers when it was seen that the ordinary citizen was getting access to inconvenient knowledge. Book "banning" is a more subtle process, a product of the mass communications age, under which that same degree of inconvenient knowledge can be filtered out from the digest of news and views through which the public is ostensibly being informed. "All the news that's fit to print" said the New York Times... but who decides?
Publishers, book distributors and stationers are all part of the screening network. W.H.Smith, nationwide stationers in the UK, once admitted they could kill a book simply by removing it from their display shelves.
The Internet currently breeches this subtle censorship. Undoubtedly the control freaks are restive, and are monitoring what the web browser now has at his disposal. But meanwhile anything goes. Pornography? Paedophilia? Drug rings? Incitement to civil unrest? Are these the types of antisocial activities from which the Establishment censors would protect us?
Not especially! In fact, superseding all these in the book-banner's hit list is MONEY, and the manner in which it is created and controlled. Down through the years he has conspired to see that it is effectively sidelined, till the social and political benefits of a reformed money system are never seen to compete with sex, sport and trivia for a vital share of the public interest. If you are young, your future job and employment prospects could be depending on it....
So YOU can change all that. Money reform is the business of Ossian Publishers, and their books can be ordered from this site. Like to sample the forbidden fruit? Or do you go along with Big Brother (he's watching you) that there are things you ought not to know?
