True Liberty Is When Free-born Men Speak Free

Milton’s  “Areopagitica”
Cried freedom for the press.
Its victory played a major role
In democracy’s progress.
Today some beneficiaries
Of his eloquent address
Would use that very freedom
As a weapon to oppress.
‘Freedom’ is their ’license’
To name and to suppress
Those who strongly criticize
The power of the press.
