GCHQ Warns It Is Losing Track of Serious Criminals

mike555 The "war on drugs" is what breeds crime (229 comments)

Governments introduce prohibitions then get busy prosecuting their made up "crimes", and they have a nerve to demand total surveillance to enforce their bullshit? Haven't we learned anything from alcohol prohibition and the violent gangs which flourished thanks to it? Besides, wars end. But this one looks like a perpetual source of "work" for governments, it is intended to be so.

mike555 "The state" has gone too far (405 comments)

Every time "the state" does something to violate personal freedoms, ask yourself, do you question enough everything they do? They start small but it all leads to things like this or worse. To keep your "questioning muscle" read some extreme libertarian blogs regularly, like Christopher Cantwell's (google it).
