John Perry Barlow: The Right to Know

“For the first time in human history. It is possible to convey eventually to every human being, the Right to Know. The right to satisfy his or her curiosity to the fullest extent no matter where he or she is. And the right to express him or herself, and have the entire human race, hear if it chooses to. This is a very important legacy to give to our children. And if we are going to deny them that legacy, on the basis of trying to preserve some institutions that may have outlived their usefulness, we will Not be good ancestors.
