Washington Examiner Piece on Digital Media and Censorship

I’m shamelessly using this post to promote a piece I wrote for the Washington Examiner.  This is a long-form magazine essay that updates and greatly expands some of the themes that I first discussed in this post from a couple of months back.

The piece discusses the recent rash of edits and deletions of the digital versions of art, the value of free speech and expression, and the cultural forces that seem to applaud the removal of “problematic” art from public view—sometimes including the creators of that very same art.

The article will be behind a paywall for most of you, but, if you’re interested, I hope you’ll access it and give it a read.  Here’s the link:

    Excellent, prophetic advise. Now I regret giving so many books away!
