“Censorship always defeats it own purpose, for it creates in the end the kind of society that is incapable of exercising real discretion.”
Henry Steele Commager
“The fact is that censorship always defeats its own purpose, for it creates, in the end, the kind of society that is incapable of exercising real discretion.”
“One's right to express oneself is a basic freedom.”
“The long-term consequence is a higher degree of self-censorship. Society is the poorer when deprived of the marketplace of ideas.”
“the interest in encouraging freedom of expression in a democratic society outweighs any theoretical but unproven benefit of censorship.”
John Paul Stevens
“‘Only extremists enjoy censorship’”
“People who joined the protest against censorship, believed that no one had the right to say what they could read or watch.”
