Many people have never heard of Aaaron Swartz. I know that I had only heard about him related to the Internet and hacking, etc.
I just didn't know anything about him in detail.
Then I stumbled across this documentary about this young kid and I was immediately drawn in. By the time I finished watching the video, I was very moved by what this man had accomplished for us all.
As usual, I was very disappointed by the actions of the US Govt. in how it treated Aaron. Was it some out-of-cntri prosecutor trying ti make a name for himself or was it a strategy or goal of the justice department and the administration? I don't know, but waht I do know now, is that Aaron was a hero and the US Govt. was the villain (once again).
I highly recommend watching this 1 hr. & 45 min. documentary. If for no other reason than to see how courageous this young man was against the evil US Empire.
