Good News for journalism!
Barrett Brown has been released from federal prison where he has been “captive” for nearly four years.
Barrett Brown is now (semi) free. For the next two years, he will be under permanent surveillance, and the smallest misconduct could bring him back to prison. Here are his release post-conditions:
Everyone should be happy for his release. Nevertheless, there is still a lot of work to do if we want to achieve more freedom. No one should conform to the current system, which is ruining our lives.
Citizens of the world should work together to prevent “Barrett Brown’s cases” happening again. We are morally obliged to protect honest journalism. Otherwise, we will become governmental “puppets” accepting anything from the government, including atrocities.
Journalists must remain loyal to their public and seek the truth, even if they are under threat on a regular basis and we must energetically support them because no one else can enlighten our lives in a similar fashion/way to the journalists.
No one will arrange your future [for you]! You are the owner of your destiny! So connect with other people and organise with them to protect people’s rights(peacefully).
Barrett, happy to see you free again!
