According to Rupert Murdoch, we are the future. "I believe we are at the dawn of a golden age of information - an empire of new knowledge," he said, before announcing a $billion investment programme to try to make sure News International could ensure that whoever travelled on the information superhighway, the same people will own the tarmac and cream off the profits.

Is there a reason the new breed of 'liberty' bloggers seem so keen on appending quotes in their postings from libertarians with the most appallingly illiberal personal backgrounds? I suppose if it was alright for Marx to claim he wasn't a 'marxist' it is OK for the advocates of liberal elite democracies to have less than liberal tendencies themselves.
