Even to observe neutrality you must have a strong government.
Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.
Freedom of expression – in particular, freedom of the press – guarantees popular participation in the decisions and actions of government, and popular participation is the essence of our democracy.
It’s opportunity. It’s opportunity, not a check from government – it’s opportunity that has always driven America and defined us as Americans.
One of the things the government can’t do is run anything. The only things our government runs are the post office and the railroads, and both of them are bankrupt.
