Speedom of Freach.

I'd been reading some articles on the rise of apparent fascism in the USA. A recurrent theme by commentors include statements like "If it was a dictatorship, you wouldn't be able to say that!!"

Err... Freedom of speech in the blogosphere era just adds a bit more noise to the background. For each comment made by an astute observor, add fifty spam blog posts; twenty astroturf blog posts; official news on Fox; reports on photographing famous people instead of covering the iraq war in national magazines.

Freedom of Speech is irrelevant when no one hears you.
