John Perry Barlow is an American poet and essayist, a retired Wyoming cattle rancher, and a cyberlibertarian that wrote and stood up for freedom of the internet. Most famous for his "A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace".
Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind.
On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather.
