“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”
“No man is justified in doing evil on the ground of expediency.”
In our current political climate, in which the Press has been attacked as somehow against the people, it is important to remember that a free Press was seen by the founders of the United States of America as a crucial element to keeping the nation free. Other thinkers have argued for the maintenance of the free Press as a necessary aspect of battling tyranny and supporting freedom. The Press is one of the institutions that must be preserved if the nation is to remain a free democracy.
One of the writers whose work most clearly illustrated the abuse of power and the effects of the suppression of the Press was George Orwell.
In an example of the use of the free press itself, Teddy Roosevelt said, in an editorial in The Kansas City Star, 1918:
Perhaps the most important words about the Press come from the paramount document for the country: The Constitution of the United States of America, The First Amendment:
"The test of a work of art is, in the end, our affection for it, not our ability to explain why it is good." -Stanley Kubrick
