Aaron Swartz, if you have never heard of him, you should, you need to. He was a pioneer in our internet. He was being prosecuted by our Government for JSTOR, with an insane sentencing. (something like 50 years in jail, when people who commit hanis crimes serve less than that) The harassment and ridiculous, false charges towards him were unconstitutional. The government wants to eliminate our free internet using guinea pigs like Aaron to send a message. Do you remember SOPA ? It is no joke, if you look at the uprising of citizens around the world, the global sharing citizens and their countries true news, the government wants to lock it down, and we can not allow this to happen. The Internet is 10 times more powerful than local libraries, you have immediate access to countries in seconds, the lies, the censored news, cannot be hidden anymore like they use to be. If we value and understand the information and power behind the internet culture, we should have more people fighting to keep the internet open and free.
There are those of us that see our rights continually being taken away, and I know that number is not high enough.
