This paper examines a series of new government rules which has limited the free exchange of information and ideas in the US. The author argues that these rules restrain academic freedom, hamper technological progress, and undermine democratic decision-making. The author focuses on how the Reagan administration has expanded the idea of national security and new efforts to control exports and reduce paperwork also have dangerous side-effects on information.
