"Every man – in the development of his own personality –
has the right to form his own beliefs and opinions.
Hence, suppression of belief, opinion and expression is
an affront to the dignity of man,
a negation of man’s essential nature."
Thomas I. Emerson
(1907-1991) Lines Professor of Law, Yale University, author
Toward A General Theory of the First Amendment, 1966

    The fresh search for Truth is exciting and liberating. Monopolists and racketeers that rely upon public opinion cannot afford such inquiries or the sharing thereof.

    Now the quest is to educate people to that which has been lost. Liberties, once long ago defined, are swept under the rug of ignorance, while the poor masses are duped with bread and circus and the cry of socialism's remedies. False narratives promote ignorant speech. Nice Tri-cord, Mike, Norwalk !
