"Free speech good! Censorship bad! Undeniable. Indisputable. Except
that Eric Berkowitz denies and disputes with such intellectual
agility as to induce cramping of the brain. Vivid, violent
historical examples buttressing the case against censorship, while
we citizens of the internet find ourselves drowning in crud for
want of it. The point is you'll enjoy the ride, and the argument
has never been more pressing."
