It might be crazy to expect a high government official to speak the truth. It might be crazy to believe that government policy will be something more than the handmaiden of the most powerful interests.  It might be crazy to argue that we should preserve a tradition that has been part of our tradition for most of our history -- free culture.  If this is crazy, then let there be more crazies.  Soon.

-- Lawrence Lessig (3 June 1961), American academic and political activist, Free Culture (2004)
