"It’s a structural flaw of any totalitarian regime that the more you prohibit things the more valuable they become – it’s a market thing. If information is rationed and filtered, it becomes very valuable. One single word becomes a weapon, because you are not supposed to say it."
-- Vladimir Bukovsky (as quoted in Financial Times, January 15, 2010 )
