    It is not my problem that you cannot justify Europe's suppression of speech and expression without irrelevantly pointing at a completely different practice of another continent.

    How could I defend my point of view if I can't make any comparison?

    You aren't defending your point of view by pointing to the alleged torture practices of America. You are saying, "America does worse stuff so look at them and not us".

    I would suggest defending your point of view by detailing why you do what you do and how that makes Europe a better place instead of focusing on why the USA is supposed to be a worse place.

    I was not saying that torture was good or wrong, I just observe that posters are very critical towards foreign countries and usually try to find excuse for what happens in theirs

    Also, you said that laws that protect social order are a sign of weakness of a society on the edge of collapsing. I point out that similar laws exist and have the same goal, but you don't bitch at them.

    The court has explained it and you failed to debunk its arguments

    and how that makes Europe a better place instead of focusing on why the USA is supposed to be a worse place
    I was not saying that the USA are better or worse, I was saying that there are similar things everywhere, but when it is in the USA you seem to find them more acceptable than when they are in Europe
