re: Agree or Disagree with this statement?
Posted by a want on 3/24 at 2:14 pm
Yeah I agree. I might say it a little differently - but that's pretty much it. The means of distribution used to be the barrier to having your speech heard. As the saying goes (or used to go) everyone has the right to free speech as long as they have a printing press. Everybody has a printing...
