“Until a few years ago, traditional top-down censorship was largely a thing of the past, something I wrote about annually at the beginning of Banned Books Week to remind people that it could happen again. … Top-down censorship has returned with a vengeance, mostly implemented by fascist corporations acting on behalf of governments. But in the US, politicians in many states have implemented traditional censorship in school libraries, even to the point of threatening librarians with criminal charges.” (09/19/22)
