ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The Internet stands as one of the last uncensored avenues for information exchange (“America’s Internet police,” Editorial, Friday). Though there are many problems associated with uncontrolled flow of information, why can’t we let Americans decide for themselves what is garbage and what is legitimate just as they do with junk mail?

Americans’ right to be informed and speak out should take precedence over the efforts by some in our government to prevent this free flow of information. In that spirit, Americans should do everything in their legal power to make certain that the Cybersecurity Act of 2009, sponsored by Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV, West Virginia Democrat, never passes. That would be the death knell to our nation’s democracy. A true democracy functions only when all of its citizens are properly informed and debate freely in whatever venue they choose.
