"Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather."

— J. P. Barlow, "A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace"

Freedom is always taken, never given. We can't expect those who have power to simply give it up.
