distribution of information at no cost (other than your computer and
your time and your interests) to the consumer. What print media or TV

power of organizations in the past have put a muzzle on what the public
was told. No more.

these sites. Access is *free*. So the poor and rich alike have
unrestricted access. (Poor can go to their local libraries and acces
This again just simply shows where the information revolution based on
Internet is going. Those who have grown up in the
controlled/moderated/censored environment may not like what they see.
But Internet is here to stay. (Last week I saw a comment that like
multiple TV sets in homes, we are looking for a time soon when each
family will have multiple computers with access to Internet.)
