The Dark Ages have come the the shores of the United States like the plague of Europe’s grizzly past. Silent, deadly and nearly undetectable, the nation is slowly dying from the decease of fascism.

The Internet is the last free space left for the masses to gather, communicate and innovate, while connecting socially and politically. 

Empowering the government to be the gatekeeper of access to information is a form of intellectual suicide. We can’t speak for anyone other than ourselves, but we intend to fight.
