Title
"No government ought to be without censors; and where the press is free, no one ever will. If virtuous, it need not fear the fair operation of attack and defense. Nature has given to man no other means of sifting out the truth, either in religion, law, or politics."--Thomas Jefferson, 1792. From the series Great Ideas of Western Man.
