Indeed!

I also believe that the Internet is sometimes overlooked on its influence on the world. Products, documents, and most importantly unfiltered news. We are the most informed individuals that have ever lived and any information we don't possess can be accessed in a moments notice. As a historian I believe that people will look back on it as the greatest invention that humanity has ever conceived.

This is true power. The power of knowledge. and that where we need to devote our attention: to making sure it stays free as long as possible.

"Liberty's too precious a thing to be buried in books...Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: 'I'm free to think and to speak. My ancestors couldn't. I can. And my children will."
