Overview

This book analyzes the consequences of censorship before tackling the media legislation of the Russian Federation and the new dangers to the free flow of information emerging both within and outside the Russian Federation. Frank Ellis considers the consequences of censorship, concluding that it was a major contributor to the Soviet collapse of 1991 which demonstrated the total exhaustion of Marxist-Leninist agitation and propaganda. Backed by a climate hostile towards individual achievement, censorship can also account for the serious failure of the Soviet economy to develop a computer industry to rival that in the West.
