"He quotes the following passage, with what I assume is
""The mission of the Free Culture movement is to build a
bottom-up, participatory structure to society and culture, rather
than a top-down, closed, proprietary structure. Through the
democratizing power of digital technology and the Internet, we can
place the tools of creation and distribution, communication and
collaboration, teaching and learning into the hands of the common
person — and with a truly active, connected, informed
citizenry, injustice and oppression will slowly but surely vanish
from the earth."
"I’ve re-read that passage several times, and I’m
still baffled about why any libertarian or supporter of the free
market would object to it."
