Well, it increasingly looks like the Western “freedom of speech” and “democracy” are the two sham concepts that the West is shedding off.
A new aggregator has been launched by RT, in the wake of a flurry of censorship, banning and criminal prosecution (as proposed in Denmark) of alternative media and people holding alternative views, that is those not towing the US government line.
The name has a historical reference to the once strict censorship of news in the USSR. “Samizdat” literally means “self-publishing”, and was a phenomenon in USSR, where dissenting books and articles would go underground and be “published” by way of spreading hand-written or machine-copied copies of the prohibited works.
And the “New” in New Samizdat indicates that the West has completely committed to the path of censorship, just like USSR once did (with the consequences that we all know about), and that a similar, now digital, phenomena arises in the West as a response to the censorship and banning.
