Publish Fearlessly

"If we're talking about creating threats to small publishers to stop them publishing, the U.S. has lost its way. It has abrogated its founding traditions. It has thrown the First Amendment in the bin. Because publishers must be free to publish." — Julian Assange on 60 Minutes.

Yes, and they miss the whole "inalienable rights" thing which they should read about in the Declaration of Independence.
