A dedication to human rights

    The Internet has brought incredible gifts of self-expression to many people in the world, but as we celebrate and defend online freedom, we should remember that this is a very special condition of our circumstances. Not everyone in the world enjoys the freedom we are sharing right now. Many people in the world have to endure the indignity of forced silence, the fear of violence, the dread of arrest, the despair of imprisonment, the pain of torture, or the destruction of their natural environment.
    Will history record the Internet revolution as the beginning of a new age of human freedom and human rights, or as the beginning of an irreversible global inequality in access to information and discourse? The choices we make now will determine the answer.
