Do we live in an age of liberty, where information is freely accessible, or an age of heavy-handed copyright restrictions where we are losing the ownership of the very devices we hold in our hands? If I had to judge, it’s probably a bit of both.

Today we read a fascinating short story that I just recently ran across at the NakamotoInstitute.org by Richard Stallman, a dystopian tale of a future where we have to fight, for our “Right to Read.” Thanks to SNI for making the work available, I wouldn’t have found it otherwise.  And a thanks to Richard Stallman for the incredible decades long fight he has put up for a Free & Open Source Society!

Check out the Nakamoto Institute for this and an incredible list of other literature to explore.
