In the old com­mu­nist coun­tries, com­rades who fell out of favor were crude­ly cut out of pho­tographs. Today in the Dig­i­tal Era it’s easy to elec­tron­i­cal­ly elim­i­nate a per­son and/​or their work. Take Chris Hedges. His show On Con­tact was aired on RT, a Russ­ian state TV net­work. It was on YouTube when sud­den­ly its six-year archive of pro­grams dis­ap­peared. Hedges said this, I van­ished. In total­i­tar­i­an sys­tems you exist, then you don’t. I have a hard time see­ing how a detailed dis­cus­sion of Ulysses or the biogra­phies of Susan Son­tag and J. Robert Oppen­heimer had any con­nec­tion in the eyes of the most obtuse cen­sors in Sil­i­con Val­ley with Vladimir Putin.” And then he warns, If this hap­pens to me, it can hap­pen to you.”
