RE: The Corporate-State Media

" long as the liberty of the press continues unviolated, and the people have the right of expressing and publishing their sentiments upon every public measure, it is next to impossible to enslave a free nation. The state of society must be very corrupt and base indeed, when the people in possession of such a monitor as the press, can be induced to exchange the heavenborn blessings of liberty for the galling chains of despotism."

- "Centinel" [Samuel Bryan] II, Reply to Wilson's Speech, Freeman's Journal, October 24, 1787
