Quotes from famous people on what censorship does.
But we know that freedom cannot be served by the devices of the tyrant.
As it is an ancient truth that freedom cannot be legislated into existence, so it is
no less obvious that freedom cannot be censored into existence.
And any who act as if freedom's defenses are to found in suppression and suspicion
and fear confess a doctrine that is alien to America.
--Dwight D. Eisenhower
Censorship reflects a society's lack of confidence in itself.
I am opposed to censorship.
Censors are pretty sure fools.
I have no confidence in the suppression of everyday facts.
He is always the severest censor of the merit of others who has the
least worth of his own.
--Elias Lyman Maggon
