Must reading …

Matt Taibbi: The Folly of Pandemic Censorship. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

People know authorities lie, which is why the more they clamp down, the bigger their trust problem usually becomes. Unfortunately, censors by nature can’t help themselves. Our official liars are always trying to learn from their errors. For instance, film of wounded, suffering, or dead American boys, as well as of the atrocities we committed, not only resulted in pressure to end the Vietnam War, but probably prevented future invasions of countries like Nicaragua, as voters recalled the sickening “quagmire.”

  1. Taibbi is worth reading in order to remind us that we all live in our bubbles, which can at least be punctured from time to time.
