Library restrictions borrow from colonial-era abuses

Here\’s A Short Op-Ed Piece from The USA Today that says filtering and The PATRIOT act puts at risk hard-fought liberties basic to U.S. identity.

They remid us that in colonial America, British officials routinely suppressed newspapers and censored books. Troops barged into homes and seized suspicious materials. Their justification: preserving law and order.

Freedoms are not at risk, says Libraries have been called \”arsenals of liberty.\” We must not allow terrorists or sexual predators to use our own arsenals to rob us of our liberty and security, or our children of their innocence.
