Evgeny Morozov argues that the Internet and social media are not as liberating and democratizing as some have claimed, and he shows how authoritarian governments are effectively using the Internet to suppress free speech, hone their surveillance techniques, and disseminate propaganda. In The Net Delusion: The Dark Side of Internet Freedom Morozov shows how the Internet entrenches dictators, threatens dissidents, and how it can make it harder to promote democracy.
