the enlightenment is under attack

For me, this was the best nibble from Roland Piquepaille's zdnet blog interview with Howard Rheingold:

Roland: Can you give us some tips or advises about the immediate future?

Howard: The enlightenment is under attack. Wake up to the necessity for preserving democracy, science, and open access to the means of cultural production and distribution.

Howard is a zen master of the eloquent turn of phrase; this is one of his best. The Enlightenment is under attack, indeed.
