The name Kindle is a bit ironic, don’t you think? Because, as Kindle and similar devices thrive, fewer and fewer books will be printed. You can call it Green or being responsible all you want — never mind all of the alternatives, like rice paper and hemp — but the fact is, it’s part of a movement to digitize all media, and control what you’re able to read. And that control gives the one- percent all the power they need to determine just what you will and will not be reading.
You can expect censorship on a level like you’ve never seen — just, slightly more sophisticated. Yet, should something clever enough manage sneak through, once identified, and with a push of a button, it will have been deleted like it never existed, and you’ll wonder why or how this could ever happen. A computer virus will be to blame, or Chinese hackers, or anyone but the true perpetrators.
And thus, in an instant, digital book burning will have occured, and all the while, never leaving a trace, not even a trail of smoke, as the whole event will have been one- hundred – percent Green.
