A friend forwarded this to me; it had been forwarded a number of times
so I don't know who to attribute the comment to, but it seems on target.
While the whole subject is disturbing, what really alarms me is the
self-censorship that appears to be happening - the sheep are starting to
shear themselves. We're trying to defend the right to free speech and
the very groups that should be the most vocal against censorship are
actively participating in the it. You would also think the various news
media would be shouting and screaming, but aside from this article, I
haven't heard or read anything else regarding this new government
The government is ordering libraries to destroy information, even going
so far as to designate certain libraries as depositories for such
information. Perhaps we'll call the book-burners "firemen"?
The new secret police state will make us safer.
