The Pamphleteer

During colonial times in America, if you wanted to convince or inform people about some issue that you considered important, you went to the local printer and got some pamphlets printed. You then handed them out, read them to anybody that was interested, nailed them to the town bulletin board, or the nearest tree. The first amendment was specifically written to protect this type of activity and the writers or "pamphleteers".

CIA: The World Factbook

The World Factbook remains the CIA's most widely disseminated and most popular
product, now averaging more than 6 million visits each month. In addition, tens
of thousands of government, commercial, academic, and other Web sites link to or
replicate the online version of the Factbook. Although this reference site
provides information as of 1 January 2005, it will be updated biweekly
throughout the year to provide wide-ranging and hard-to-locate information about
the background, geography, people, government, economy, communications,
transportation, military, and transnational issues for countries from
Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. The nine primary information categories and the 139
subcategories for most entities include geographic coordinates, gross domestic
product, number of mobile cellular telephones, natural resources, legal systems,
political parties, illicit drugs, mortality rates, and much more.
