Eric Raymond on Internet Censorship

Eric Raymond in an open letter to Former Senator Chris Dodd:

We will not have it censored. We built the Internet as a tool to make every individual human being on the planet more empowered. What the users do with the Internet is up to them – not up to Hollywood, not up to politicians, and not even up to us who built it. Whatever else we Internet geeks may disagree on among ourselves, we will not allow our gift of fire to be snuffed out by jealous gods.

I recommend reading the entire letter. All Hail the Eviscerati.
