There Is No Right to Have the Government Supress the Truth About You

"There is no 'right to be forgotten.' But there is a 'right to remember.' History is important. Speaking the truth is a human right."

--Jimmy Wales, Monday, August 4, 2014

When legislation says you have a "right to be forgotten," what it really means is that it will use the force of law to shield people from facing the peaceable consequences of their own choices.
