  • Index On Censorship: 'Neo-censorship is a kind of control on opinion that moves beyond the traditional model — that of the state, the law and the secret policeman. Today’s censors can be found in big business, courtrooms, schools, newsrooms. They block ideas out of habit, or prejudice or fear and often in secret.'
