I could create an environment that I didn't have, and I could order this environment in the way that I couldn't in my actual life.

I picked the library."

In such an environment it is easy for speech to be "free" because a change in political will rarely leads to any change in these basic instruments.

We should always look at censorship as an economic signal that reveals the potential power of speech in that jurisdiction."

Author: Pankaj Mishra

Author: Russell Peters
