INTERNET BOOK REVIEW The Net Delusion by Evgeny Morozov

The Net Delusion: How Not to Liberate the World by Evgeny Morozov – review

– This powerful critique of ‘cyber-utopianism’ shows us that the net isn’t always what we think


Two delusions in particular concern Morozov: “cyber-utopianism”, the belief that the culture of the internet is inherently emancipatory; and “internet-centrism”, the belief that every important question about modern society and politics can be framed in terms of the internet.
