From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual." – Thomas Jefferson "If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter." -- George Washington "Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost." -- Thomas Jefferson "Perfect freedom is as necessary to the health and vigor of commerce as it is to the health and vigor of citizenship." -- Patrick Henry The ONLY proper function of law/government/FORCE is “to secure these rights.” The author of the Declaration of Independence and advocate of the Bill of Rights said: “The legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions.” “The legitimate powers of government extend to such ACTS only as are injurious to others.” Hands off Liberty! Hands off Freedom! Hands off Rights!
