What should ye doe...

Just chanced upon this verbose nugget, oh flowry verbosity, let me count the ways...

What should ye doe then, should ye suppresse all this flowry crop of knowledge and new light sprung up and yet springing daily in this City, should ye set an Oligarchy of twenty ingrossers over it, to bring a famin upon our minds again, when we shall know nothing but what is measur'd to us by their bushel?

~ John Milton, Areopagitica (In Defense of Freedom of Printed Matter) 1644
