On-line Censorship - And A Simple Way to Beat It

Dear Readers of Evergreene Digest,

Like many other independent news and media sites, Evergreene Digest has fell victim to a decline in the number of people reading articles due to censorship by Google and Facebook.

if you believe in democracy of the people, by the people, and for the people, please support us now and

  • share articles posted here widely using the tools provided at the bottom of each posting.

How the Corporate Media Enslave Us to a World of Illusions by Jonathan Cook

  • The Great Western Narrative is there to perpetuate power by legitimizing it, by making its unbalanced and unjust distribution seem natural and immutable.
  • Our planet and our children’s futures depend on us liberating ourselves, seeing the ghosts in the machine for what they truly are.

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Raised%20Fist%20with%20Peace%20Sign%20Background%20copy.jpgJune 13, 2018 | For several years now, I have been writing regular posts on my blog with one end in mind: to help open a door for readers and encourage them to step through. I select issues, usually those that dominate western media coverage and represent a consensus that we might term the Great Western Narrative, and try to show how this narrative has been constructed not to inform and enlighten but to conceal and deceive.

It is not that I and the many other bloggers doing this are cleverer than everyone else. We have simply had a chance – an earlier one – to step through that door ourselves, because of a jarring life experience that the Great Western Narrative could not explain, or because someone held the door open for us, or more usually because of a combination of the two.

June 11, 2018 | It’s official. The Federal Communications Commission’s repeal of net neutrality rules, which had required internet service providers to offer equal access to all web content, took effect on Monday.

The rules, enacted by the administration of President Barack Obama in 2015, prohibited internet providers from charging more for certain content or from giving preferential treatment to certain websites.
