    Jackboots not needed in this day and age, all that will be needed is to threaten to withhold the freebies.

    She must be a racist.

    Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

    Yes, it's a wonderful forum where your responses are meaningful as well.

    It's a great way to make a post without actually contributing anything substantial or intellectual. Que sera sera.

    LOL, how would you, or I, or anyone else, know? One of the most salient points about secret prisons, secret torture chambers, etc. is that they are secret.

    I would not be so sure of the probity of so called western democracies. Have you ever heard of Senator McCarthy, or of extraordinary rendition, or imprisonment without trial?

    It is amazing quite what may be 'justified' in the interests of national security.
