Thought is more than a right – it is the very breath of man. Whoever fetters thought attacks man himself.

Eva Green
Google helps us sort the Internet by providing a sense of hierarchy to information. Facebook uses its algorithms and its intricate understanding of our social circles to filter the news we encounter. Amazon bestrides book publishing with its overwhelming hold on that market.
