Abstract: Vital Zajka – Control Over Public Discourse in Belarus and United States: Paradoxes and Similarities (web-magazine “Kultura. Natsyja”, N 26, December 2020, p.66-75, www.sakavik.net)

This article tries to understand today’s processes taking place in Belarus and USA in the area of control over social discourse. The author analyses ideologies which are behind the powers that control social discourse in both countries. He comes to the conclusion that both ideologies possess much in common and stem from one common root. In spite of the fact that there is a vast difference in the intensity of control and extent of punishment to those who disagree with control tactics being implemented at the present time in Belarus and USA, today’s tendencies point to the possibility of seeing the development of greater similarity and coming together of methods which can lead to loss of freedom in the sphere of public discourse, and this in spite of the differences of societies in contemporary Belarus and USA.
