Hopeful Signs

(Thanks to WorldChanging.com for pointing to the story.)

You can control the media, shut down web servers, monitor the telephone lines, scan the e-mail and throw people in jail for what they say but there is always a network - somewhere. Somewhere people are outside your control, and they are talking. Truth can only be suppressed and denied. It can not be can not be made 'untrue' outside the fevered mind of the delusional.

"Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death.... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man."

Bertrand Russell.

It can also be true if you pay a law firm and a lobbyist to make it true.
