Jimmy Wales: What does freedom look like?

Jimmy Wales is famous for founding the non-profit online encyclopaedia Wikipedia and the for-profit Wikia web-hosting company.

He is extremely concerned about state surveillance against "ordinary people".

Jimmy Wales's image of freedom is the Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC, and more specifically a quote by US President Thomas Jefferson inscribed on the memorial: "I have sworn upon the altar of god eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."
