John Gilmore's Search for the Mandatory ID Law

BigBadBri Re:So there's no law... (1568 comments)


This scenario is almost exactly what happens here in Airstrip One, under the Blair Junta's 'anti-terror' legislation.

The only difference is that under the lateat proposals, a judge is unnecessary - the Home Secretary (equivalent of the US Sec. of State) can decide who gets locked up.

My sig sums up my feelings on this, as on so much else.
