[Zitat] Unkommentiert – 2005

“It is said that those who fail to remember history are doomed to repeat it. That’s not quite correct. We all forget history. The key is whether we have a way to go back to rediscover what we forget. More directly, the key is whether an objective past can keep us honest. Libraries help do that, by collecting content and keeping it, for schoolchildren, for researchers, for grandma. A free society presumes this knowledge.”

Lawrence Lessig (aus “Free Culture: the Nature and Future of Creativity”)
