This is why I read the Guardian...


In times when big business and governments attempt to monitor and control everything, there is a need as never before for an internet that remains a free and universal form of communication. WikiLeaks' chief crime has been to speak truth to power. What is at stake is nothing less than the freedom of the internet. All the rest is a sideshow distracting attention from the real battle that is being fought. We should all keep focus on the true target.

Also an apt quote that I've seen tweeted around in the last 24 hours:

In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

George Orwell (Eric Arthur Blair)

Anyhow enough political whatnot, I've used all my angry pills for this week.
