Some Interesting Quotes

   I found some interesting quotes that I thought I'd share.  Definitely something to think about!

It is hard to tell which is worse:  the wide diffusion of things that are not true, or the suppression of things that are true.  (Harriet Martineau)

In the past censorship worked by blocking the flow of information.  In the twenty-first century censorship works by flooding people with irrelevant information.  (Yuval Noah Harari)

The right to freedom of speech is no license to deceive, and willful misrepresentation is a violation of its principles.  It is sophistry to pretend that in a free country a man has some sort of inalienable or constitutional right to deceive his fellow men.  There is no more right to deceive than there is a right to swindle, to cheat, or to pick pockets.  (Walter Lippmann)
