“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all are created equal, that they are endowed by The Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
As the internet grew, it grew with a dream of liberation, for the world as a whole, from any powers that may inhibit the God-Given rights of mankind—one in particular, freedom of speech. Since its inception, on more than one occasion, sites have been seized, censored, and/or shut down in most all countries by varying government organizations of the world. Freedom of speech is, so to speak, a double-edged sword—both good and bad things can come from it. We believe, however, that it is up to the individual to decide what texts they shall censor for themselves, not a ruling entity (appointed or not).
With the age of blockchain technology has come an unprecedented ability to liberate societies from centralized institutions and their interferences in freeexchange. With Bitcoin came liberation from financial institutions, with FOI comes liberation from communications channels. Had George Orwell known of the tech that was to come, he might have writ one less book.
