"When people talk of the freedom of writing, speaking, or thinking,
I cannot choose but laugh. No such thing ever existed. No such thing
now exists; but I hope it will exist. But it must be hundreds of years
after you and I shall write and speak no more."
(1735-1826) Founding Father, 2nd US President
letter to Thomas Jefferson, 15 July 1817, Ref: The Yale Book of Quotations, 2006
