ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the issue on censorship in 1917 in the U.S. He asserts that censorship is not a popular word in the country, nor it is a practice which appeals to the ordinary citizen. He argues that the citizen suffers it to an extent, equaled in those European countries which his wisdom regards as retrograde. He says that this is because the citizen feels that a conflict with a censorship, which commands influence through its investments in stocks and bonds, is always a losing fight.
