Even the geeks at Linux Questions dot org are talking about it.
StevenD at the Booman Tribune comments so I don’t have to. A nugget:
When you ban books, you ban speech and you ban ideas. When you ban ideas you effectively neuter our right to free speech, not only for the author of the book but also for those who would choose to read it to discover what they might learn.
Yet, we are faced with a number of candidates on the right for political office this year who would joyfully and wholeheartedly limit your right to read what you want given the opportunity, as well as a number of other rights you now possess or for some, hope to receive. In some states this is already a regular occurrence. Many candidates support the elimination of net neutrality, a threat your ability to access and read the blogs and online publications of your choice.
The Republicans are constantly concerned that Democrats are going to take away their “rights” by which they usually mean the right to own an unregistered handgun or other firearm. Funny, though, how they have so little concern for a freedom that is far more important to our society: the freedom to think what we want, to say what we want and to learn what we want.
