“We shouldn’t be surprised that extremists today try to terrorize and spread their own form of tyranny through new media.” Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt

“There a libertarian ethos there, where it’s like, ‘Anything goes, and it’ll be good, just keep the government away, and we’ll innovate our way to utopia.
