Pravin Lal “As the Americans learned so painfully in Earth’s final century, free flow of information is the only safeguard against tyranny. The once-chained people whose leaders at last lose their grip on information flow will soon burst with freedom and vitality, but the free nation gradually constricting its grip on public discourse has begun its rapid slide into despotism. Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.”

— Commissioner Pravin Lal, Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri, videojogo de 1999

 

Barack Obama “This administration stands on the side not of those who seek to withhold information but with those who seek it to be known. The mere fact that you have the legal power to keep something secret does not mean you should always use it. Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency.”

— President Barack Obama, 21 de Janeiro de 2009, ao cancelar a restrição do Bush aos registos da Casa Branca

Como se não bastasse, ele ainda disse uma coisa linda:

Hell yeah! 🙂 Apenas uns anos depois de o Bush Sr. ter dito que ateus não podem ser verdadeiros patriotas nem verdadeiros cidadãos. The tide is turning…
