I tend to agree that the free flow of information is the key to man's (and woman's) liberation of mind and body. Without such a flow of info, what we tend to see is the oppresion of people-whether african, asian, anglo, or hispanic. The need to free up this information is vitally important to the future of our human race. As long as the leaders of nations believe that suppressing this information is key to there success (ie. Milosovic of Yugoslavia, Hussein of Iraq, etc.) we will see continued oppression and savagery.
Man is known to be an inquisitive being. A sentient being uses his/her mind to explore new areas of thought which have peaked their interests. When this is suppressed what tends to happen is the atrophy of free thought. An unfortunate occurrence. This must be nipped in the bud, so to speak. Or man/woman will see their untimely demise through war, famine, or religious persecution. There are clear-cut examples of this already happening-Yugoslavia, Iraq, North Korea, China, just to name a few. We in the US are not shielded from this-we, too, are victims of this silent monstrosity. Our leaders tend to tell us what is right and wrong, without consulting the free-flow of ideas that is essential for change and the development of the society, as a whole.
Just a few of my thoughts, please comment-
Later all and have a good weekend!
p.s. oh yeah, here's one for Sodom-"Long live the SLF" :)===~
